    1. This book was groundbreaking when it was written. Though it style may seem dated to us now, the recipes are still quite good. While I am not a committed vegetarian, recipes in this book have helped me design several meatless or very low meet meals for my family each week.

    2. I have recently found and dusted this off again; I don't remember the recipes as rocking my world, but the spirit behind them sure does

    3. I found the concepts in this book to be fabulous, but the more recipes I tried the more I didn't like this book. Most recipes were thick and bland and not to our liking."If one amino acid (proteins are made of amino acids) is even partially missing from the patter, the use of the other amino acids for protein synthesis is reduced proportionally." - pg. 3"NPU - net protein utilization - tells us how much of the protein we eat is actually available to make human protein." Combinations:granola & [...]

    4. All cookbooks should be spiral-bound!Very interesting book that tries to provide recipes for substantial food that doesn't require exotic or expensive ingredients.Better yet; most of these recipes can be improved immeasurably now that we have better whole-wheat pasta, etc than we did in the 1970's (my mother still has horror stories about early whole-grain foods). You might have to tweak them a little, but it has a lot of potential.

    5. Book 6 in my quest. Given that the first recipe in this book is "All Protein Crunch Granola" it shouldn't be a huge surprise that this book was published shortly after the "summer of love", by a lady living in Berkeley, CA. I guess it's a decent vegetarian cookbook. But it's not like I have a lot to compare it to. Yet.

    6. My husband and I have had this book since 1976. I unearthed the book the other day and he made the "Complementary Pie." It was as good as we remembered it! We made another and sent it to an ill friend, and they requested the recipe. Like any other cookbook I own, this one has some really great recipes along with the so-so ones.

    7. Alas, I no longer have a copy of this and gather that the "complementary proteins" theory behind the cooking style isn't regarded as gospel anymore, but between 1980 and 1983 I cooked almost every recipe in the book and so had to include it on my list. The lentil soup is still good!

    8. If, like me, you lived in a student co-op in Berkeley in the 1970's, this 1973 book will bring back memories of the vegetarian cooking of that era. I think I'll go stir up a batch of the "Kitchen Sink Cookies" which my forgotten notes in the margin say are good for breakfast.

    9. A vegetarian's necessity in the 80's but outdated now. Complementary proteins were made up by Lappe to make vegetarianism more acceptable to nutritionists of the day. There are much better vegetarian and vegan cookbooks available. It still has some good recipes.

    10. This book is very 1970's back to the land era. The recipes are vegetarian, but there are some very good ones in here if you're wanting to have a meat-free meal occasionally. I've enjoyed quite a few of the recipes and will definitely keep making them.

    11. This was one of my earliest cookbooks from a book sale in the '80s. Complementary protein cooking can taste better, surely? It is interesting to look through.

    12. This was one of my mother's favorite cook books. I enjoyed reading it, and was inspired by many things she talked about. But I didn't like the recipes very much.

    13. This book has been very helpful in raising 4 children who did not know they were vegetarians at home.
