    HANG ON, FOLKS. THIS ONE COULD CHANGE YOUR LIFE--SAVE YOUR LIFE. It's Ultra-Vegan and it's not as bad as it sounds. There's still tons of wonderful food you can eat: burritos, pasta, cakes, pies, burgers, sweet potato fries, sorbet and pizza, too. It's NOT like eating dirt. Really it's not. What you don't eat is quite simple: NOTHING with a FACE or a MOTHER and no more dairy, eggs, or oil. Badda-Bing! and you're on your way to a healthy, svelte body. Yup.

    Wow!! I have made at least 10 of the recipes in this book and have not come up with a fail yet! Moreover my entire family enjoys these recipes, including a very picky 5yo. While I agree with author's point of view that a plant based lifestyle is healthy, I would still appreciate the addition of the nutritional information with the recipes (i.e. calories, fat, protein, etc.) I do not struggle with weight or health issues, but still like to have a general idea of my daily calorie/fat/protein intak Wow!!

    I've read this through from cover to cover and I've now had a chance to try out a dozen or so dishes. I've had way more hits than misses and I'm quite pleased with this book. I was worried the recipes would taste bland but that's not the case at all.

    Delicious recipes guaranteed to please even the pickiest eater! Forks Over Knives - The Cookbook had exactly what I was looking for: a diverse selection of whole-food, plant-based recipes. The book was organized by type of dish and included a section on "Basics" that covered all the sauces, stocks, broth, etc. used in some of its recipes. I loved the separate sections for Soups, and Stews and Chilies, which are my fave especially this time of year (fall/winter).

    I've found many vegan cookbooks to be inaccessible to someone who isn't committed to the lifestyle, and in that regard Forks Over Knives is a breath of fresh air. Rather than a collection of side dishes flying in loose formation, many of the meals are familiar mainstays with non-traditional ingredients - wraps and stir fries and casseroles figure prominently. Recommended if you enjoy cooking and own a good set of knives - as usual with vegetarian recipes, there's a lot of chopping and mincing and I've found many vegan cookbooks to be inaccessible to someone who isn't committed to the lifestyle, and in that regard Forks Over Knives is a breath of fresh air.

Most of the recipes I've tried have been flavorful enough to satisfy my non-vegan spouse (although the polenta pizza with tomatoes and basil and no shred of cheese in sight was *not* a hit). Many of them seem like they could be tweaked with a bit of dairy or eggs if you want a "gradual vegetarian" approach.

    I love the movie and had to buy the book based on that alone, but am not regretting it! This book is particularly good for people who want recipes that are not oily, soy-based or full of store bought cheeses and things. The recipes use simple ingredients and support a healthy diet- whereas some cookbooks go for tasty, but not always healthy, options, the recipes here are all going to help those with weight or health issues because they avoid oils, sugars, and artificial ingredients whenever poss I love the movie and had to buy the book based on that alone, but am not regretting it!

I do wish, however, it had more photos and they weren't in the middle of the book- I prefer the recipe and photo go together to draw me into wanting to make it.

    I was hesitant about this one at first, because there are not nearly enough pictures, and the pictures that are there don't really look all that appealing to me. But there are actually quite a lot of recipes that sound really good, and that look pretty easy, and that don't involve a bunch of weird ingredients. I'm excited about trying some out soon! --Update: I've now made several things from this book and they were all extremely...bland. Easy, but bland.

Cool if it works for you, but...not my style.

    o far everything I have made has been really good! Baby & Hubby approved!!! 1) Hearty Dal Soup (pg.100) very mild but totally satisfying. 2) Mushrooms, Kale, & Potatoes (pg. 142) Rocking good!!! This one helped my clean out my veggie drawer :) Must add Siracha! I doubled the recipe and the next day we ate it for breakfast with an egg, sunny side up as a topper. De-lish!

    Good book. Some of the recipes could use some more spices to improve the taste as they are somewhat bland.

    There are some good recipes in this! I hate cooking so that might be a struggle but at least I've found some now breakfast and lunch ideas.

    I return to this book from time to time, reiterating this important message for myself; plant food is superior to the standard American diet. I use quite a few of the recipes for both myself, as a diabetic, and for my family. Thankfully the recipes included are generally quick, flavourful, and require no specialty ingredients. I do tweak the vast majority of recipes to suit a low carb diet (again, I’m diabetic), so those wanting low carb plant based recipes should be confident in the kitchen, or I return to this book from time to time, reiterating this important message for myself; plant food is superior to the standard American diet.

It should be noted that this is a plant-based diet recipe book, not an ethical vegan book. The main focus is on better health, tho all recipes are suitable for all vegans.

    Dismal, awful, flavorless, unsatisfying 'food'. I don't care what your ethical stance or weight loss goal is, you need fat in SOMETHING for your food to be nutritionally complete and to actually make you feel satisfied. A depressed person with a box of pasta, can of beans, and bag of frozen vegetables could make dinner while crying and the result would be identical to some recipe in this book. It is that bad. There is so little seasoning - herbs, spices, anything with flavor. Most recipes start Dismal, awful, flavorless, unsatisfying 'food'.

There is so little seasoning - herbs, spices, anything with flavor. Most recipes start with onions, carrots, and garlic, and then add one other vegetable and one pinch of some spice blend that is too small to actually flavor the dish. Most of the pasta recipes call for whole grain spaghetti, the worlds worst representative of whole grain foods AND pasta.

    I made the Taco salad, Guacamole, and breakfast scramble. Very simple to make, but none had much flavor. They just didn't have any soul for my palette. Nothing resonated with my taste buds. There are so many amazing, healthy vegan cookbooks, I'm afraid this one doesn't seem to groove with my cooking style. BUMMER! But we don't usually eat traditional american vegan food. We are definitely influenced by our lives around the Mediterranean. I also know people are wild for this book... I had to wait q I made the Taco salad, Guacamole, and breakfast scramble.

We are definitely influenced by our lives around the Mediterranean. I also know people are wild for this book... I had to wait quite a while for it to come in Interlibrary Loan. So don't use me as your needle. To sum up: If you use a bulb of garlic every couple of days, love jalapenos, and eat dijon mustard from the jar, this may not be the cookbook for you. If you are more of the Greens, moosewood palette- you will probably dig it quite a lot! As always, check it out from the library first. Try it before you buy it.

    Another excellent plant-based cookbook. Recipes I've tried so far have all been very good and well received -- 1. Lotsa Vegetable Chowder, pg. 94..subbed frozen corn and mistakenly put the dill in with the other spices instead of at the end; still tasted great. 2. Grilled Portobello Mushrooms, pg. 173 and 3. Portobello Mushroom Tacos, pg. 137, yummy alternative to bean tacos. 4. Penne with Spicy Eggplant..a nice chunky sauce...I have extra that I will pair with farro or quinoa in place of pasta.

Minestrone, pg. 87..subbed Fire-Roasted tomatoes instead of regular and farro instead of basmati rice; very good - ate leftovers for lunch all week. I make a lot of soups and stir-frys, and I like the fact that every recipe in this book doesn't start with sauteing everything in oil. Much less fat and calories using water, veggie broth and other liquids that are part of the recipe. Well done!

    Wholesome recipes for beginners in the kitchen who want to lose weight - it does what it says on the tin. The breadth of dishes and styles covered is unusually large to cater for all tastes, but the recipes are a quite basic and lacking in decadence. It provides a lot of starting points but if I wanted to make a really good "X" I would not take the recipe from this cookbook - the lack of pictures doesn't help. There are a few nice recipes by the guest chefs.

    Best, easiest cook book to follow and plenty of energy to clean up the messes afterwards. Wish there were more pictures But then I guess it would spoil the fun of the surprise of creating it your self. All these recipes are fresh, healthy, healing foods that are and has been bringing more energy and balance to my life! Thank you for writing this helpful price of art! I use these recipes everyday.

    This one definitely rivals Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook. Isa's desserts look phenomenal, per usual. I copied several recipes. I'm excited about a new option for vegan mac n cheese.

    Super healthy vegan and oil free The recipes look easy enough, but many are still unattractive. I don't think I will ever be hardcore enough to want to eat most of these. Still, some, occasionally, may be good.

    This is a vegan cookbook, with an eye toward improving your health (and the planet's). So, while it's not for everyone, it's surprisingly good. The salad, soup and desert chapters are highlights.

    I watched the video on Netflix "Forks over Knives" and wanted to see the actual book or cookbook, however, I only tried one recipe that didn't taste too great and the smoothies were the only thing worth trying. They were a bit sweet for my tastes even though the first try I lowered the dates to sweeten your drink without stevia or sugar, but next time, will try red bananas or plantains instead of actual bananas and less dates for sweetener. I wrote the ones I enjoyed and will do again.

    Many of the recipes have ingredients that are hard to find where I live. Also, many of the recipes are spicy and I prefer less heat, which is a personal preference.
