I have to say, I have really nothing bad to say about this book. It's got a wide variety of recipes, they are very well organized, the photos are beautiful, the ingredients are real, and the food is delicious. The recipes are not that tough to make for someone who has average cooking abilities.
First of all, Tosca makes it a point to tell her readers that she is not a vegetarian. For someone who is not a vegetarian, she (or her research team...) has done a fantastic job of learning about vegetarianism / veganism. She has looked into clean sources of veggie protein, and she even includes a section on how to get vital nutrients and vitamins in which a veg-head might be deficient (B12, D, you get the idea).
While there might be some recipes that have hard-to-source ingredients, I found that most of the recipes have very basic ingredients, most of which I already have in my vegelicious kitchen. For example, the brown rice breakfast require brown rice, soy milk, and clean sweetener. While you may not have every single ingredient right there waiting for you in your cupboard, I suppose that's to be expected. And, as others mentioned, if something is too hard to source, it's usually not too hard to sub something.
One feature I really liked about the book was the little coding system that tells you specifics about the food. The legend explains the various symbols to mean the following: vegan, lacto-ovo, ovo, lacto, pescetarian, gluten-free, kid-friendly, quick and easy, ovo optional, vegan optional, and gluten-free optional. I found it super-easy and convenient to use these as I quickly skimmed through the recipes.
And now... the moment you've all been waiting for! The dreaded pescetarian aspect!! OK, here's the thing... in my honest opinion, it would be a dang shame to avoid this book because there is a fish chapter. There are over 100 recipes in this book. Ten of them include seafood. If this book were renamed as a pescetarian cookbook, I'd be more ticked off as a pescetarian finding only ten fish recipes in the whole book. I suggest ripping out the pages and burning them if they are offensive to you. I know... and you know... vegetarians don't eat fish. However, as another reviewer mentioned, in some cultures, fish-eaters are considered vegetarians. I know! Wacky, right?! My family in Europe says they are vegetarian; they eat fish. Wack-a-doodle-doo! Those fishies are totally not sea-vegetables!! But that's how it goes.
I bought the book for the Barley Berry Crunch; the Butternut squash, portobello mushroom, carmelized onion, and hazlenut pizza; the tofu gyros with tzatziki. So many, many delicious recipes to eat, and they're all clean and healthful!
I highly recommend this book for vegans, vegetarians, pescetarians, and for meat-lovers who just want to have some meat-free meals. Just the pictures alone are worth it; they're total food porn. :0)
As an edit: I would highly recommend the print version of this book. Don't get me wrong... the Kindle version is very well laid out, has nice quality images, and looks great as well, but the print version is just beautiful. The images look far better, the pages are glossy, the cover and spine are excellent quality. It makes a great coffee table book, too, just because it's so prettttty!!
