Recommends it for: cooks who miss various animal based foods & are willing to spend time making vegan versions
So, I love the title of this book and I couldn’t resist borrowing it from the library. I’m glad I didn’t buy it though. Most of the recipes are not my cup of tea. I was surprised at how few appealed to me, even though I don’t like vegan meats. Naturally, most of the recipes I could see making are desserts. The savory dishes that struck my fancy are the vegan parmesan blend and the vegan ricotta, cheese recipes, and the vegan kugel with broccoli rabe and chanterelles, and the garlicky white beans ...more

I have yet to make any recipes from it - so keep in mind I have no first-hand experience - but I would highly recommend someone look through the book themselves instead of blind-buying the book. It uses a large amount of prepared vegan substitutes (which is a huge pet-peeve of mine). The book opens by listing some recipes for gluten or fruit flavored as meat substitutes and then goes on to cheese substitutes. Some of the cheese subs themselves call for pre-packaged vegan sour cream or pre-packag ...more

Really great combined with Vegan on the Cheap (which details how to make the prepackaged foods veganize this call for for, from scratch).

pretty exciting recipes.

If you want to learn more about Vegan cooking (vegetarian plus no animal-based food, such as cheese and eggs). The only previous Vegan cookbook that I have explored is Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook by Kim Barnouin. By way of comparison, I find the latter somewhat preferable to Veganize This!

However, this volume is a fine introduction to Vegan cooking. The book begins with the necessities of a Vegan pantry, including a lot of replacement components (e.g., MimicCreme is a substitute for

As a vegetarian looking to cut down on the amount of dairy and other animal products I eat, I found this book really interesting and would definitely recommend it to other people who are trying to do the same. Yes there are some pre made items in these recipes but I also there are know plenty of blogs that tell you how to make this stuff at home if you prefer not to buy pre packaged stuff. There are some amazing recipes in here so please don't dis-count it if you enjoy homey american food.

I really love how this book has how to make vegan "cheese" as well as any "meat" you can think of. I see this book being supper helpful in that aspect. On the other hand, this book is more for when you have time to make a meal and not a fast bite cook book. I hope i will be able to make everything in this book.

I have this and can't seem to make anything from it. I love vegan cook books and although I love the title of this book it just sits on my shelf in my collection looking cool but never getting any use.

I'll star this when I actually try some of the recipes. It is full of recipes I do want to try.

Jenn Shagrin is a Los Angeles based Vegan Chef, Actress, Comedienne and Writer. Although she's 25 years old, Jenn likes to believe she hit the genetic lottery, as she's often mistaken for a 14 year old. It's wonderful for her acting career, but not so beneficial when she approaches a bouncer at a night club.

Jenn is most well known for her recurring role throughout Season 5 of "Reno 911!", but does
