Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
"Animals raised for food in the United States eat one-third of the world's total grain harvest." Facts such as this one and stories about animals rescued from slaughterhouses highlight this collection of vegan recipes compiled by an organization noted for its activism in the area of animal rights. The introductory material presents all the reasons for eliminating animal products from the diet, including health and environmental concerns and provision of food for all the world's population, as well as ethical concerns about the treatment of animals used by humans for food. But the main focus is the recipes, with close to 200 recipes in 11 categories. The pages are nicely laid out, and the recipes, all of which contain nutritional information, are easy to follow. This is an excellent collection for people who want to decrease or eliminate animal products in their diets but who don't know what to do with tofu, seitan, tempeh, nutritional yeast, and other ingredients familiar to vegetarians. A glossary and list of suppliers is included along with a list of web sites. Recommended for public libraries.Carol Cubberley, Univ. of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg

    So-so recipes

    A decent vegetarian/vegan cookbook. I didn't find the recipes overwhelming appealing but I did like that a lot of recipes had little factoids on each page explaining what an unfamilar ingredient might be.

    I thought book reviews were for people who had the book?

    Honestly, I like a lot of PETA's recipes, from this book and out of it. But before anyone else decides to search for "animal rights" to try to make a satire of vegetarians, you ought to at least look at the book, and in this case, try a recipe. In any case, it's a recipe book, not a persuasive essay. Why try to insult recipes?

    It's so good for my color!

    Being from the rainy Pacific Northwest, I have naturally pasty, grayish white skin. I find these wonderful recipes and their lack of robust animal protein just the thing to keep me looking like I belong up here in the great NW. If only our nice friends from PETA could come up with a veggie Starbucks Latte, I'd be one big fat happy camper ;)

    Devine stupidity...

    WOW, I had no idea such ignorant fools could use computers... It's pretty pathetic that you have nothing better to do with your time than come here to thrash on people who are obviously more intelligent than yourself, therefore compounding your own stupidity. Get a life. Or hey, better yet, maybe us tree huggers should sink to your level: we'll stop by to laugh at you and Mr. Nugent while you lie dying in your hospital bed from colon cancer, or maybe a little heard disease. We'll see who has the last laugh. Bring on the hatemail, and prove your stupidity to me even further.

    something original?

    c'mon guys, someone else already tried their hand at the "sarcastic review" before you...and for the record, they did a much better job. if you don't like this book's message then grow up and leave it alone. eat all the meat you want but leave the others who acutally care about the balances of "give and take" (which the life cycle is so dependent upon and which humans seem only to be able to "take and take") alone...cheerios
