"The book is beautifully illustrated and the recipes are mostly simple, quick and easy to follow. Longtime vegetarians, especially those with a macrobiotic background (which in America has seriously deep Japanese roots), will be familiar with many of these ingredients. . . Fujii provides a helpful, illustrated glossary, as well as some basic how-to material for preparing staples." —Associated Press
"Vegetarians, vegans and even lovers of steak teriyaki will find much to savor in this introduction to the quiet wonders of Buddhist temple cuisine, or shojin ryori. ...Tae Hamamura's color photographs are mouth-watering, whether depicting Kenchin Style Vegetable Soup or a simple bowl of Ginger Rice." —Publishers Weekly
"Clean and crisp, this nourishing guide brings a healthy, natural culinary tradition from Japanese temples to the American table. . . . a true antidote to the overindulgent American diet, this is more than a recipe collection--it's a refreshing approach to food that is sure to make you look and feel renewed." —Kirkus Reviews
"Emphasizing natural and healthy ingredients such as fresh seasonal vegetables, and the staples of grains, and tofu, these creations are simple and elegant delights, delicious without undue extravagance. . . . Highly recommended." —Midwest Book Review
"Touting the benefits of vegetarian and vegan diets, The Enlightened Kitchen presents dishes that anyone would love, while the fantastic photographs will tempt even the most die-hard carnivore to at least try the recipes. Knowing that a healthy life-style and long life takes work, this new cookbook espouses good, sensible meals which can encourage weight loss and improve insulin sensitivity. The bonus? The food tastes good.... I'm hooked. I try to eat sensibly and plan to live to be 110! I expect The Enlightened Kitchen to help me meet my objective." —BookLoons.com
Buddhist temple cooking (J: shojin ryori), with its emphasis on the use of fresh, seasonal vegetables, and staples such as seaweed, grains and tofu, is the perfect antidote to the unhealthy eating habits of Western society, where obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other diet-related illnesses are rife. Traditionally, shojin food in temples is of great spiritual significance. For the monks who spend their days in the practice of rigorous self-discipline, mealtimes are a chance to soothe the body and the mind. This introduction gives an outline of both the health and spiritual benefits of shojin food, illustrated in colour with dozens of recipes arranged as Soup, Salads, Tofu and Beans, Vegetables, Potatoes and Rice, and Desserts. In keeping with the Buddhist spirit, no animal products whatsoever are used. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

The recipes are delicious, and can be whipped up with moderate time allowance. I make a soup, and two sides every breakfast and dinner using some recipes from this, and other shojin books I own. I find it only takes about 30 minutes if you multitask and about an hour if they require multiple sauces to accompany them.
Overall it's a great book, some prior ingredient knowledge will definitely help & for those who can't find everything there's helpful substitutions.
The index is useful as well, and due to the presence of several Asian markets in my area I haven't had any trouble obtaining the right ingredients.
My only qualm (hence the 4 stars) is that I wish there were more tasty recipes in this book - the many pictures are beautiful of course, but not the reason I buy cookbooks.
