    I am on a quest to find recipes to suit my newly retired lifestyle. Most days I am home for all three meals, so I need healthy options for all of them. My thought was that I would review each cookbook and accompany each review with photos of recipes which I'd tried. This very first book has scuttled that plan!  I can really tell this book was written by a professional chef. The lists of ingredients tend to be long and sometimes call for things which I would never have on hand. He uses sugar subst I am on a quest to find recipes to suit my newly retired lifestyle. Most days I am home for all three meals, so I need healthy options for all of them. My thought was that I would review each cookbook and accompany each review with photos of recipes which I'd tried. This very first book has scuttled that plan!  I can really tell this book was written by a professional chef. The lists of ingredients tend to be long and sometimes call for things which I would never have on hand. He uses sugar substitutes, which I'm reluctant to do. It is blatantly obvious that someone else does his dish washing. One recipe that sounded good (Feelin' Your Oats burgers) required cooking to a certain point in a pot on the stove, then turning the mixture into a baking pan, then cutting it in squares to go back in the oven on a sheet pan to get crispy. I don't have the patience for all these steps and I don't think the dishwasher could cope with those oatmeal sticky pans. I don't have sous-chefs or human dishwashers to support me. Now some of this is on me. I am fussy and I know it. I loathe onions. I still cook with them, but I reduce the quantities and I chop them fine to hide them from myself. I'm also picky about greens. I love spinach salad or spinach cooked into things, but I don't want a glop of cooked spinach on my plate, I think kale smells like farts and I won't touch it. I eat tomatoes, but according to my own arcane rules. Then there's my need to be gluten free for personal comfort issues. So, the only recipe I would have made from this book is the rice pilaf. What a boring photo that would be!  But my quest will continue. I hope to have better luck with the next cookbook.

    This was a library book but I’m going to have to buy a copy. There are lots of good, easy to prepare recipes. Some reviewers have complained about a lack of originality, but originality was not my primary goal here. I wanted to find tasty, healthy recipes—without lots of esoteric ingredients—that I could prepare regularly and which would offer some variety. This book accomplishes that.

    Even it is not for me the best cookbook and it has some special species and so, i will always recommend this book for its versatility and because it is endorsed by ADA so its has its credibility. To be honest , many of this recipes are not so original but to have them together here is worthy. So I have it at hand to have a conversation with my patients and always recommend them to buy it. Good resource after all!

    This is a WONDERFUL cookbook. Due to food allergies, my sister and I are VEGAN. In addition, I am gluten intolerant. Both of our parents are diabetic (although they keep a traditional diet, it is very healty and diabetic-aware). My sister and I live with the constant awareness that we too may be stricken with this disease. I am very adept at substituting vegan friendly and gluten-free ingredients into traditional recipes, so I collect cookbooks of all types.

I am very adept at substituting vegan friendly and gluten-free ingredients into traditional recipes, so I collect cookbooks of all types. However, when I saw that this vegetarian cookbook was by The American Diabetes Association, was I very excited to have the opportunity to use it. This cookbook has been a wonderful tool in the kitchen. I have already cooked several meals from the recipes listed inside, of course making the vegan/gluten-free substitutions. In addition, my mother has used it to make vegetarian meals for her and my father. Each time, the ingredients were easy to acquire, the food simple to prepare and the results very tasty. This cookbook is highly informative and educating to those who need further information on managing a diabetic diet or vegetarian diet. I would WHOLE HEARTEDLY recommend this cookbook regardless if you are vegetarian or diabetic. The recipes are overall wholesome and tasty. If you need further education about eating as a vegetarian or diabetic, this book is VERY informative. Overall, I think this book should be added to ANY "foodies" cookbook collection.

    Author Petusevsky is a former Director of Food Development at Whole Foods, his time there obviously influences the ingredients he choses for his recipes. Pro: Excellent information on the exchanges/choices for each recipe and on calories and nutritional value of each dish. Con: I was a bit turned off by the obvious need to go to specialty grocers such as Whole Foods for the not common spices etc As I'm not a diabetic I picked up the book for inspiring vegetarian dishes but alas was not inspired.

    Written by a man who was chef creator for Whole Foods and has written a Whole Foods cookbook. With that said, I found very few of the recipes "inspirational" in the sense that I would want to try them. I set aside three to test. I would have expected more, especially tapping into ethnic spices and methods. In the end, you are still just cooking vegetables. I suppose the American Diabetes Association sponsorship held him in check.

    Extremely disappointed with this cookbook. Most of the recipes were recipes already in my other cookbooks with only mild changes. I'm guessing this chef's assertion that he came up with these recipes on his own to be a bit unbelievable. The flavors were not as good as I had hoped. I'm actually surprised the ADA even have their name on this book. Clearly none of them actually cooked anything from the book before they made that decision.

    Something different to try for meals without the risk of blandness that some "healthy" recipes seem to have.

    Not overly original, but very accessible for the average home cook. A good starting point for anyone looking to add vegetarian dishes to their repertoire.
