“The Jazzy Vegetarian brings vegan comfort food mainstream in a very accessible way. Who doesn't love comfort food? Dishes always taste even better when they are cruelty free!” - Emily Deschanel, Star of Fox TV's hit show Bones

“Who knew vegan treats could be so scrumptious! Anyone who’s tasted Laura Theodore’s food knows. Try her new amazing dishes…with a twist!” - Ed Begley, Jr., Actor, Director and Environmentalist 

"I love this cookbook - tasty twists on classic American cuisine.  Vegan cooking is not boring and tasteless, and the Jazzy Vegetarian proves it again and again with the recipes in this book.  I love it!' - Pop Music Icon Belinda Carlisle

"Jazzy Vegetarian Classics" is a stunning masterpiece exemplifying how decadent a healthy plant-based diet can be. Laura Theodore exudes jazzy passion and beauty that will inspire you to love being in the kitchen."- Julieanna Hever, MS, RD, CPT, author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition and host of "What Would Julieanna Do?"

"Whether you're a part-time vegetarian or a seasoned vegan, you'll adore Laura Theodore's healthy twists on classic American dishes. From twice-baked potatoes oozing with a creamy (and good-for-you) filling to a to-die-for black forest pecan pie that will dazzle any guest, your family gatherings will never be the same. In her typical fashion, Laura infuses wisdom and helpful cooking tips into every recipe, and has once again made plant-based food accessible, innovative, and delicious." - Colleen Holland, Co-Founder of VegNews Magazine

"Jazzy Vegetarian Classics is packed with fresh ideas on preparing delicious, healthy plant-based recipes. This book gives you everything you need to plan a satisfying meal from salad through dessert, and even select music to enhance your eating pleasure. Laura Theodore's positive energy shines through every page, making this a fun read sure to inspire you to eat more whole foods - and enjoy every bite of it." - Janice Stanger, Ph.D. Author of The Perfect Formula Diet

"Laura Theodore does it again by creating easy, accessible, and tasty recipes that are also healthy. Jazzy Vegetarian Classics is a must have for anyone wanting to expand their repertoire of great tasting dishes that remind you of Mom’s cooking. And my favorite part---you won’t have to go to some specialty market to find the ingredients, most of them are available in your neighborhood grocery store." - Del Sroufe, Author of Forks Over Knives: The Cookbook

"Jazzy Vegetarian Classics is a much needed cookbook, as it will make healthful, delicious vegan cuisine accessible and approachable for one and all. Looking at the beautiful photos makes me want to cook and invite others over for an amazing, healthful, and delicious meal.  I love Laura's cover photo.  She is a living example of what she believes in.  The dishes are simple, nutritious, and easy to prepare. It is a blessing that Laura Theodore is providing healthful, conscious options so that we all may enjoy classic American favorites with an eye toward health and vitality." - Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, Internationally Renowned Kundalini Yoga Teacher, Founder of Golden Bridge Yoga, author of The Eight Human Talents and Bountiful, Beautiful, Blissful

“[Laura Theodore’s] passion for food, music, and the art of presentation is contagious. Jazzy Vegetarian Classics shows people who enjoy food that they are not giving up anything by eating more healthfully, but rather entering a world where food is more interesting, varied, and delicious. The recipes are not just for vegetarians or vegans, but for anyone who loves and celebrates food.” - Dr. Pamela A. Popper, Executive Director of The Wellness Forum and co-author of Food Over Medicine

“More and more people are interested in exploring healthful, vegan cuisine, and the Jazzy Vegetarian Classics cookbook is making it fun and easy. Eating plants instead of animals has never been so enjoyable.” - Gene Baur, President and Co-Founder of Farm Sanctuary

“The genius of Jazzy Vegetarian Classics is that the recipes magically transform incredibly healthy vegetarian ingredients into extraordinary family classics much better than the original.  The book promises those who indulge not only fabulous meals, but also a wonderfully healthy life.  Nature's path toward vegetarianism has never been so easy to follow!” - Daniel A. Nadeau, M.D. Author of: The Color Code, A Revolutionary Eating Plan for Optimum Health

"If you're looking for classic American meals, with a meatless twist, look no further. This cookbook by Laura Theodore makes eating healthy a breeze.

Going from a meat-heavy diet to one completely without it can be a rough adjustment. Theodore does a great job of easing people into a vegetarian lifestyle with her cookbook, Jazzy Vegetarian Classics, because she offers meatless versions of recipes we already know and love. Her recipes are quick and easy to prepare, and offer amazing swap-out ideas that will truly amaze you.

For example, Theodore has recipes for Spaghetti and "Wheatballs," Cauliflower "Steaks," and Mushroom-Nut Burgers that will make you feel like you're not missing out on anything, which, we all know, is very helpful when changing up a diet regimen. Enjoying every meal is still important, and Theodore does a great job proving that every vegetarian meal can be enjoyable and satisfying.

We also appreciate this book's down-to-earth approach to vegetarianism. It's perfect for seasoned vegetarians and vegans looking for innovative new dishes, and for casual home cooks looking to add one or two plant-based recipes to their weekly repertoire." February 2014,
