Praise, 3/5/12
Gluten-Free Vegan Comfort Food reworks a lot of classics and makes a good addition to a cookbook library.”, 3/7/12
“Whether following a diet restricted by health concerns or conscience, cooks and home chefs will find a nice variety of tempting recipes that are so good, we forget that they are ‘healthy.'”

Portland Oregonian, 3/12/12
“Recipes, which include things like Mac and Cheese and Chocolate Cupcakes…evoke memories of Mom's home cooking…The book includes lists of foods to avoid, pantry essentials and easy-to-understand explanations of unusual ingredients and celiac disease—essential stuff for people who are new to the gluten-free world.”
Portland Press Herald, 3/14/12
“If you're thinking of trying on veganism to see if it fits, this is one of those books that might help you make the transition. O'Brien includes a helpful glossary of ingredients that may be unfamiliar to you, such as teff flour and organic agave cactus nectar, and explains how they are used…There are also plenty of tempting recipes—a butternut squash soup, mashed sweet potatoes, guacamole—that can be made with what you already have in your kitchen.”, 3/15/12, 2/1/12

Tuscan Citizen, 2/18/12
