This is quite a monster of a book, clocking in at 512 pages but it does include a wonderful variety of recipes. With 20 chapters, they cover pretty much everything! A little disappointed that a book so large has not even one picture but once I got to the list of resources at the back of the book and realized the authors have a Flickr Group full of pictures of the goods, my rating did go from 3 to 4. Still a little inconvenient since you have to click on each picture to find out what it is but it ...more

This was the first vegan cookbook I bought and I have enjoyed working my way through it. If I had one complaint about it that complaint would be that many of the recipes were either complicated or really time consuming. Also, this book does not include nutrition information.

I really wanted to love this book. I loved her Complete Guide to Vegan Substitutions, and the variety of recipes appealed to me. Add to that the simplicity of ingredients and ease of recipes, I thought this would be a no-brained 5 star book.
But, after a handful of recipes, I am so disappointed! Everything I made was edible, but none of them had that "oh-my-goodness-this-is-so-awesome-I-can't-believe-I-made-this-and-this-is-a-keeper-of-a-recipe". I tried the sweet and sour tofu (the sauce was run

An excellent, user-friendly compilation of delicious animal-free recipes. I think this is my favorite Vegan cookbook so far.

Excellent -- many of the recipes had regular ingredients and didn't have you running to Whole Foods for some obscure thing.

I decided to use this vegan cookbook for the Popsugar challenge for a book about food. I was walking around and just saw a vegan cookbook and I said okay this looks really good let me take a look. As I surveyed the recipes I thought this book isn't for me. There're too many recipes that seem complicated and not for me. I will admit that the book has a lot of recipes for everything from breakfast to sauces and drinks. By the time I really looked through it I saw that there were a ton of recipes t ...more

Shelves: food, lifestyle
This book is huge and I'm rating it based on my cursory skimming of the recipes. I noticed a lot of side type dishes and not actual meals. There did seem to be quite a few recipes for sauces and dressings that looked tasty. Baking recipes are also a plus and there appeared to be some bread and dessert ones included. I'll have to come back to this one when I have more time to actually experiment with the recipes. I'd give it 3 stars but it has NO pictures which is pretty detrimental for a book of ...more

I found this book at a vegan festival. I noticed there booth and was very interested because at that time I was just starting to become vegan and didn't have any good recipes or anything like that. I saw the cover and flipped through. The lady at the booth started to laugh because she was like you picked up the only book here that doesn't have pictures in it. I ended up buying the book and it has been one of the most used books on my shelf.

Great source for easy and quick vegan recipes. This book is in the style of vegan cooking which mimics non-vegan recipes, so it's great when you're starting out and crave old favorites. Also great for comfort food recipes and cakes/cupcakes.

Best tea cake recipes I've ever made, pre-gan years included. Awesome homemade seitan and mock crumbles (tvp-based and vwg-based, in case you are soy- or gluten-allergic).

I did not find many recipes to use in this book, mainly because I prefer recipes with few ingredients, and also gluten-free.

This is my favourite vegan cookbook so far! We have loved EVERY recipe in this book. They are full of flavour and most of the recipes have 3 or 4 variations.

Veggie Curry: Pretty good. I must find a garam masala that does not contain cinnamon. I hate cinnamon in savory dishes.

Veggie Chow Mein: Good, next time I will put in a lot more broccoli.

Okay, I have a ways to go before I can make the perfect black bean burger, but this book has been an inspiration for a variety of vegan food.
