    The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook is, and has been, my favorite cookbook. I'm currently on my FOURTH copy, having used my others until the pages fell to the floor. This is one of my books that I won't lend out; its just too useful. The title is misleading; the recipes are VEGAN. At the time it was written, however, the word "vegetarian" was fairly one-size-fits-all. "The Farm" is an intentional community established in 1971, when its original settlers followed Stephen Gatskin from San Francisco to The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook is, and has been, my favorite cookbook.

The title is misleading; the recipes are VEGAN. At the time it was written, however, the word "vegetarian" was fairly one-size-fits-all. "The Farm" is an intentional community established in 1971, when its original settlers followed Stephen Gatskin from San Francisco to rural Summertown, Tennessee in a caravan of painted schoolbusses, vans, and trucks stretching 60 vehicles long. At its peak, The Farm had somewhere in the area of 1,200-1,600 residents, and is still in existence today. One of my favorite things about The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook is that, unlike Oh, say… VEGETARIAN TIMES or THE MOOSELODGE COOKBOOKS, the recipes are both usable and affordable. Even if I could afford the fancy ingredients required for Veg Times “Vegan Galette des Rois” recipe, in no way could I justify pouring Kirsch brandy over tofu. I mean, really. Who does that?! With the hooplah regarding cultural awareness of vegetarianism, urban homesteading, and “living simply or simply living,” practical how-to’s on making soymilk, tortillas and tempeh are particularly applicable. Nestled into the cookbook are photos of Farm residents and short stories, making it an interesting read on an important time in history. If you enjoy that aspect of New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook, you might also be interested in Ina May Gatskin’s book, Spiritual Midwifery, which is the story of how the Farm was born and the births that followed, or Arcadia, the fictionalized story of the Farm, written by Lauren Groff.

    My edition is actually just "The Farm" not "The New Farm." It's worth it just for the melty mac & "cheese." My 2nd favorite cookbook after Soy Not Oi.

    A very great resource book. Lots of things you never knew you could easily make from scratch. Like soymilk, tempeh, you name it. It might seem a little outdated to those that want something really modern and posh, but I just love it. It has timeless basic recipes and really really easy and great bread recipes. Excellent resource, I recommend it.

    This was my go-to cookbook when I was vegan. Some of the recipes came out weird, though, like the fake cheese, but I forgive it for its sheer crunchy, vegetarian exhuberance!

    This is a classic vegetarian cookbook. Almost every recipe in this book is unpretentious yet delicious.

    This was my very first vegan cookbook (from when there were only a few vegan cookbooks out there). It is simple and sort of from "another time" in vegan history. That said, we use the pancake recipe all the time (I've added more baking powder and less oil) and often make it with gluten-free flour. What's so fun about owning this book is that years after I bought it, I became good friends with a woman who was born on The Farm and her mom had helped to edit the book.

    This book makes me feel very nostalgic. I don't know that I've ever actually cooked anything from it, but I like to look at the pictures of the hippies making tofu and feeding babies and such. And the nutrition references in the back are good. And, someday I might want to make my own tofu. I'm not a huge fan of the "soy based lifestyle" sort of vegetarianism, but if you are looking for more vegan standby recipes, this is a good basic book to have.

    A few good recipes - pancakes and vegan mac & cheese were things we made a bunch of. That said, I think the fact that this is a cookbook based on what was served at an intentional community whose kitchen had to cater to the palates of many made for what I find to be a collection of overwhelmingly bland recipes. The kind of food that non-vegetarian people are incorrect in thinking vegetarian food is all about.

    I love this book! The recipes are easy, healthy, cheap to make, tasty and all vegan! What more could one ask for? I love the basic recipes (the biscuits are great!) and the enchilada sauce and nut yeast cheezy sauce are both awesome. I have never had better enchiladas, and they go over well at communes!

    For some reason a lot of the dessert type recipes in this book just did not turn out right for me, Especially the cake recipes. However, I really enjoyed the information and recipes for the tempeh, soymilk, soy yogurt, Yuba, gluten roasts and tofu .It is definitely worth picking up and reading if you’re interested in making tofu or any of the above at home.

    My mother, who was not vegan, had and used an older copy of this book. I bought this book probably 25 or more years ago, and it has been a trusted favorite in our household for all of these years. The pizza cheese recipe is the one that stands out to me the most, but I have loved and used this cookbook for so many years. It's a classic.

    my first vegan cookbook! I have never made half of this stuff, but it has really simple recipes. I love the nutritional yeast sauce in there! Even though Rose told me my nachos were disgusting...

    I got this cookbook because I coveted Jessica Ratchliff's copy. I've cooked some things out of it. These recipes are highly based on soy, so if you need to figure out what to do with tofu or tempeh (or how to make your own!) this book is for you.

    Well this book has a lot of great crazy hippie vegetarian/vegan recipes in it. It has some simple dishes like lentil loaf and enchiladas with a nutritional yeast "cheese" sauce which are memorable favorites. If you are so motivated to you can learn how to make your own tempeh.

    Very good beginner vegan book. Explains common ingredients, and the recipes are simple and straight-forward. Inspired my love of nutritional yeast... the mac and cheeze recipe is classic and perfect.

    Nifty Old-School Veg cookbook. This was the first one we got, a billion years ago. Pretty simple recipes, nothing fancy. Hippie veg cuisine- TVP, tofu, nutritional yeast, miso.....nothing exotic or processed. I still turn to it every once in a while.

    A good all around basic vegan cookbook. Yeah sure, a lot of the recipes in here need to be added to or adjusted, but still quite helpful. Thanks to Uncle Bill and all the Tennessee hippies.

    This is, hands-down, the BEST, and most used cookbook I own. There's nothing fancy in here, just good basic recipes to build from. It's all vegan. This is, hands-down, the BEST, and most used cookbook I own. There's nothing fancy in here, just good basic recipes to build from. It's all vegan.

    Excellent stuff here. My only real gripe with this book, (aside from the hippies, of course) is the proportions are to feed a small army. That's it. Otherwise, this is solid!
