‘Vegans Can’t Eat Anything!’ Editorial Reviews Summary
The first thing that impressed me was the availability of the ingredients used. The step by step instructions are also very well written and easy to follow. The photos are very appetising and really make you want to make the food. I found that the recipes will appeal not just to vegans/vegetarians but to all people who appreciate fine food. Altogether an entertaining and useful book that would be an asset to anyone’s collection.

Vegans can’t eat anything - that is a common misconception. What is left? What on earth can you eat? The pictures look lovely! It’s doing interesting things with fruit and vegetables…being creative and inventive with your food.BBC Radio Manchester interview

A cookbook that challenges the notion that vegan cooking is dull. There are plenty of exciting recipes to make from simple teatime meals to gourmet evening meals to impress your guests. The recipes in the book are an interesting mix of international cuisine and also some traditional Lancashire dishes. The book contains recipe ideas for warming, hearty soups, light appetisers and starters and some delicious main courses. The meals seem 'doable' for both novice and experienced cooks. Wrexham Veggies
Photos of the dishes are on the back of the book, by the way, and they do look good. “Why do they do that?” asks the author. “I mean, make a perfectly healthy fresh vegetable soup and then gunk it up with cream?” Yeah, I can relate. I’m the cook in the house and I’m usually too busy actually cooking to look at cookbooks. This would make a good cookbook for any vegan. I’m going to get started immediately. Vegan Voice Australia
This is a collection of Catherine's own recipes, and there is a good, well balanced selection with standard recipes such as Lentil Cottage Pie through to the more unusual and intriguing, including Beer Battered Beetroot! Vegan Village
I was very impressed with this 124 page healthy little charmer. I do truly believe that in this day and age especially it is a great spiritual practice to eat in a health conscious way, and this yummy guide with it's 80+ recipes ranging anywhere from "Rich Vegetable Chilli" to "Bean and Mushroom Soup", and last but not least, breath-taking deserts that almost look to good to be true. I found the recipes to be easy to follow and the ingredients not hard to come by. I would recommend this sweet treat to everyone. Riki Frahmann, Mystic Living Today Newsletter
