But I really wish it had been around when I first became vegan, in my mid-20s, and didn't know where or how to begin. The recipes produce delicious, easily prepared vegan food that's inexpensive to make. The artwork is outstanding, too — appealing without being too precious. These recipes will appeal to your inner stoner, even if, like myself, you have no interest whatsoever in getting stoned. Even as a somewhat experienced cook, I sometimes just want to open a few cans, throw stuff in a pan and eat a delicious meal in 15 minutes. This adorable cookbook is a winner." — Dustin G. Rhodes
