Carol Fenster’s 125 Gluten Free Vegetarian Recipes Cookbook

I was sent a copy of Carol Fenster’s latest cookbook 125 Gluten Free Vegetarian Recipes.  I have huge respect for Carol Fenster as when I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease six years ago, Carol’s books were the first I read.  They helped understand the gluten free “lifestyle” as well as what the heck to eat/cook.  I was a vegetarian for 15 years prior to going gluten free (well except for bacon, but that’s another story) and struggled to find gluten free vegetarian recipe ideas.  I love the concept of this recipe book and the vegan recipes are definitely a bonus!.  Carol has penned an impressive nine cookbooks and decided it was time for a gluten free vegetarian primer.  “With over 22 million people following a vegetarian-inclined diet and seven percent adhering to a gluten-free diet, the time is right for a cookbook that combines these two popular diets into one practical guide,” says Fenster, who has been gluten-free for over 20 years.  I made the gluten free granola recipe and LOVED it!  The recipe was easy, quick and the granola bars were moist and tasty.  The possibilities of what nuts/dried fruit to use as add ins were endless (I’m all about variety).  Overall, this is a great cookbook if you are looking for new gluten free vegetarian recipes.

 

Review of 125 Gluten-Free Vegetarian Recipes by Carol Fenster, Ph.D

Pros:

  • Excellent assortment of gluten free vegetarian recipes.
  • Bonus vegan recipes.
  • Details the calories, fat, protein, carbs, cholesterol, sodium and fiber for each recipe.

Cons:

  • No food photographs.  Prior to going gluten free, I didn’t cook much at all.  After being diagnosed with Celiac Disease, I was essentially forced to get in my kitchen. I need pictures of what the end result will look like!
