1. My sister was looking at it and noticed that at first glance, half the recipes look like they're for the same thing. Some kind of bean, 2 carrots, 2 stalks of celery, some tomato of some kind, some garlic and two cups coarsely chopped onions. But the other ingredients make all the difference and they are really very different dishes in the end and soooooooooo good.

2. The aforementioned sister is not veg. Neither is my son. My husband is, but he is very picky about food. ALL of them LOVE the food made from this book. Every veg cookbook out there will tell you its recipes are delicious to meat eaters, but in this case, it's actually true.

3. Lorna's recipes can be made low/no fat very easily. Just dump the garlic and onions in with everything else at the beginning instead of cooking them in oil first. It still tastes great and you've saved a step and one less pan to clean. Alternately, I've sauteed the onions and garlic in water with a dab of WonderSlim to get a caramelizing effect and that was pretty delicious, too.

4. (I know I said three. Consider this one a bonus freebie, hahaha) Why are you soaking beans overnight? With the pc, you can speedsoak beans in minutes. Lorna's chart and directions are excellent.
