Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for All Seasons Reviews

    Not great, and it's pretty hard to disappoint me with vegan soups and stews. I like the seasonal organization, but most of the recipes need way too many ingredients and have way too many steps (definitely a limiting factor for the lazy and small-of-kitchen). As a gluten-free aside, I g...

    some good recipes, but glad i checked it out from a library and didn't buy it, there weren't enough recipes I thought i would make again and again in it. A couple I'll try though. ...

    I made the potato, cheese, and green chili soup. It was delicious. Perfect comfort food. The friend who joined me for lunch that cold day loved it and asked for the recipe. The variety of tastes represented in these recipes is quite large so there will be something to appeal to everyon...

    More like 3.5. Unlike A taste of Venice: Traditional Venetian cooking, this has several recipes I would be willing to cook. I would make them simply vegetarian rather than vegan, though, where applicable. (Replacing margarine with butter, for example.) This takes a reasonable approach ...

    i read this cover to cover and didn't care enough about the ideas in here to try anything. part of that was because i wasn't particularly interested in the recipes. the other part was that i thought the recipes were kind of poorly written. a good cookbook will tell you not only how lon...

    Breads and other "good with soup" foods are included in this text. My only complaints were that I'm not a huge fan of cold soups and some of the recipes called for exotic (or at least less common) ingredients. There's a small insert of color photos in the middle, and the instructions f...

    I have tried a couple of these recipes and with a few minor tweaks for personal preference, they came out quite well. The book is very understandable for those of us who don't really have any prior knowledge of soupmaking. I was able to follow the recipes easily (although I avoid t...

    Although for the most part I liked some of these soup recipes, others left me just sort of blah! Most ingredients however, are easy to find in any market. It was refreshing to to be able to use a variety of different herbs and spices. To me, the best way to enjoy a lot of these soups i...

    Not enough pictures, but lots of interesting soup recipes. Organized by season, this contains both familiar favorites like minestrone and curry lentil but some other unusual soups too. Many of these recipes are available on Nava's website: http://www.vegkitchen.com/ and I added a recip...

    A good cookbook, but some of the recipes I tried were bland and needed spicing up. I think it's because any canned additions called for "salt-free" this and that. When I used a "low-sodium" alternative the taste was better. A good example is the Minestrone Soup recipe on page 50. As so...

    Even though I'm not a vegetarian, I like to use this authors recipes to get lots of vegetables into my diet. Her recipes work and are tasy. The book is in four sections, one for each season so that seasonal vegetables are featured. ...

    B+ Some of these recipes sound quite delightful, and not too many odd/unique ingredients required, or reliance on fake meat. Some of the recipes seem quite unique, though others are fairly normal. I def plan on trying a few from here. ...

    Really great, but simple, recipes. I have probably made over a half dozen of the soups in this collection and there was only one I wouldn't make again (although admittedly, I didn't entirely follow the instructions.. :)) ...

    Lots of recipes I'd like to try, but now that the weather is warming up, soup is the last thing on my mind! ...

    Gathered a small collection of recipes. Will give them a try over this winter. ...

    The really simple soups are good, but most of the recipes in this book won't cut it in my house. ...

    good recipes, but too many ingredients ...

    This is such a wonderful cookbook. Easy, quick, balanced recipes. The breads in the back are delicious, especially the tomato olive bread. ...

    Awesome book! ...

    This book is divided by seasons so you can choose to use the freshest ingredients. So far, I've lived every recipe I've made from this. ...

    I am super picky so I usually read a cookbook and find one new recipe I want to try, but this one yielded at least 6-7 delicious looking soups and stews!! ...

    All of these sounded very warm and comforting. I just wish someone would make them for me. I'll probably try the Pumpkin & Tart Apple soup recipe next fall. ...

    Not great, and it's pretty hard to disappoint me with vegan soups and stews. I like the seasonal organization, but most of the recipes need way too many ingredients and have way too many steps (definitely a limiting factor for the lazy and small-of-kitchen). As a gluten-free aside, I g...

    some good recipes, but glad i checked it out from a library and didn't buy it, there weren't enough recipes I thought i would make again and again in it. A couple I'll try though. ...

    i read this cover to cover and didn't care enough about the ideas in here to try anything. part of that was because i wasn't particularly interested in the recipes. the other part was that i thought the recipes were kind of poorly written. a good cookbook will tell you not only how lon...

    Breads and other "good with soup" foods are included in this text. My only complaints were that I'm not a huge fan of cold soups and some of the recipes called for exotic (or at least less common) ingredients. There's a small insert of color photos in the middle, and the instructions f...

    Although for the most part I liked some of these soup recipes, others left me just sort of blah! Most ingredients however, are easy to find in any market. It was refreshing to to be able to use a variety of different herbs and spices. To me, the best way to enjoy a lot of these soups i...

    A good cookbook, but some of the recipes I tried were bland and needed spicing up. I think it's because any canned additions called for "salt-free" this and that. When I used a "low-sodium" alternative the taste was better. A good example is the Minestrone Soup recipe on page 50. As so...

    Even though I'm not a vegetarian, I like to use this authors recipes to get lots of vegetables into my diet. Her recipes work and are tasy. The book is in four sections, one for each season so that seasonal vegetables are featured. ...

    B+ Some of these recipes sound quite delightful, and not too many odd/unique ingredients required, or reliance on fake meat. Some of the recipes seem quite unique, though others are fairly normal. I def plan on trying a few from here. ...

    Really great, but simple, recipes. I have probably made over a half dozen of the soups in this collection and there was only one I wouldn't make again (although admittedly, I didn't entirely follow the instructions.. :)) ...

    Lots of recipes I'd like to try, but now that the weather is warming up, soup is the last thing on my mind! ...

    Gathered a small collection of recipes. Will give them a try over this winter. ...

    The really simple soups are good, but most of the recipes in this book won't cut it in my house. ...

    good recipes, but too many ingredients ...

    This is such a wonderful cookbook. Easy, quick, balanced recipes. The breads in the back are delicious, especially the tomato olive bread. ...

    Awesome book! ...

    This book is divided by seasons so you can choose to use the freshest ingredients. So far, I've lived every recipe I've made from this. ...

    I am super picky so I usually read a cookbook and find one new recipe I want to try, but this one yielded at least 6-7 delicious looking soups and stews!! ...

    All of these sounded very warm and comforting. I just wish someone would make them for me. I'll probably try the Pumpkin & Tart Apple soup recipe next fall. ...

    Nice, a lot could be adapted for crock pot. ...

    these recipes request simple accessible ingredients. I love how it's broken in seasons so I know I'm using the freshest and most realistic foods in my meal. ...

    Really great, but simple, recipes. I have probably made over a half dozen of the soups in this collection and there was only one I wouldn't make again (although admittedly, I didn't entirely follow the instructions.. :)) ...

    Lots of recipes I'd like to try, but now that the weather is warming up, soup is the last thing on my mind! ...

    Gathered a small collection of recipes. Will give them a try over this winter. ...

    The really simple soups are good, but most of the recipes in this book won't cut it in my house. ...

    good recipes, but too many ingredients ...

    This is such a wonderful cookbook. Easy, quick, balanced recipes. The breads in the back are delicious, especially the tomato olive bread. ...

    Awesome book! ...

    This book is divided by seasons so you can choose to use the freshest ingredients. So far, I've lived every recipe I've made from this. ...

    I am super picky so I usually read a cookbook and find one new recipe I want to try, but this one yielded at least 6-7 delicious looking soups and stews!! ...

    All of these sounded very warm and comforting. I just wish someone would make them for me. I'll probably try the Pumpkin & Tart Apple soup recipe next fall. ...

    Nice, a lot could be adapted for crock pot. ...

    these recipes request simple accessible ingredients. I love how it's broken in seasons so I know I'm using the freshest and most realistic foods in my meal. ...
