First off, I’m not vegan or vegetarian but I am pre diabetic. I wanted to find interesting and tasty plant based sides to accompany my proteins. The recipes are delicious and easy to prepare. Some of the ingredients are off the beaten path but will add much zest to your palette. Another reviewer said it’s taught them how to cook. I feel my palette has evolved. There are some flavor combinations I would never have thought of putting together. The app does cost but there are no other hidden in app purchases or memberships they push on you. The interface is clean and easy to use. Never crashed on me, seems like the developers are very involved. Recipes are added regularly bc there’s a great team of contributing professional chefs, even some from the medical community. Get this app to add to your kitchen arsenal, you won’t regret it!

I’ve never been interested in learning much about cooking — so I eat mainly easy to prep raw foods and salads. I recently decided to learn some plant-based oil-free recipes and this app is my new best friend! I’m making delicious oil-free/gluten-free breads and soups so far. Can’t wait to try out more. The images are beautiful and help so much to illustrate, and the directions are awesome because they have 3 tabs for overview, ingredients, step-by-step method. You can favorite to bookmark recipes and you can click “add to shopping list” which I use all the time when trying out a new recipe. Thank you for such a helpful and great app!

The selection of dishes is interesting but the recipes were not carefully checked. Here’s a specific example that’s typical: the Indian Spiced Cauliflower and Potato Casserole does not indicate whether the cooking is done covered or uncovered. What’s worse is that if you are working from the printed copy it is missing key parts of the recipe as viewed in the app. Try it - look at the ingredients list in the app and compare that with the printout. Cook’s Illustrated used to have a section in its magazine where they reviewed cookbooks and vetted the recipes to make sure they worked, had all the necessary instructions and were precise but not too complex for a newcomer to cooking techniques. They’d probably give this app a fail. On the other hand, the recipes in the Forks Over Knives magazine are better done as are the ones in Darshana Thacker’s book. Buy those and ignore this app.

This app is fine. It’s nice to have all of the whole Food recipes in one place. Often when searching online a lot of the recipes that come up are not actually whole food so this is nice for that reason, however I have seen quite a few of these recipes for free online so paying for the app feels like a foolish purchase. What I really need from this app is for it to tell me how long sauces and dressings and such can keep in the fridge. There are quite a few things, examples being cheese sauce or pasta sauce, that I would love to make a large jar of but I do not have freezer space so I’d like to know how long they would keep in the fridge. You also cannot view the ingredients and recipes at the same time so you have to keep switching back and fourth to see what quantities you need to be adding. This also isn’t a meal planning app as it claims to be, it is just a WFPB recipe database. To recap: the recipes look good but can be found elsewhere online, you cannot plan meals by day or week, I don’t know how long the food I make will keep, poor navigation/organization. If it was free this app would be great but all in all: Not worth the money.

Not really worth the purchase. Broken into categories (soups/stews, deserts, salads etc). Not very many recipes in each categorie around 50 in each. Pretty boring and not very enticing. Under categories should be sub categories then “recipes” , not just one recipe. For example, under breakfast there should be a categorie for omelette, not just one omelette recipe, there should be a bunch to choose from. Also there are probably a ton of burrito recipes out there, but there is only one. There are around 65 “contributors” who donated a recipe or two, I would think there would be more. Around 50-60 odd recipes in each category. Breakfasts, salads and sides, soups stews, deserts, baked stuffed, pastas and a couple others. Also time consuming to sift through each dish to determine spice and ingredients, I get bored sifting through and end up closing app. I purchased to get ideas and get inspired that was pushed on a Facebook page. Seems like this app still in early stages and needs improving. My still go to is Food and Wine. Honestly, better off just searching for stuff and not spending money. At this stage it should be still free.
