Format: Paperback
Beautiful book! What I especially appreciate is, Colleen tries to stick to ingredients that you can get at your local grocery. Again, awesome information inside(one example is the helpful tips for cutting onions without tears), and many delicious and fairly simple recipes! I've got her two other cookbooks and she makes being vegan pretty simple...and scrumptious!

Colleen Patrick-Goudreau did it again! After her award-winning The Joy of Vegan Baking: The Compassionate Cooks' Traditional Treats and Sinful Sweets and the absolutely amazing The Vegan Table: 200 Unforgettable Recipes for Entertaining Every Guest at Every Occasion, the animal-loving vegan founder of Compassionate Cooks offers us a truly magical cookbook. The recipes are, as always, easy to follow, well presented and detailed with tons of tips. An absolute must-have for anyone who wants to eat better, cleaner, simpler and more delicious food!

Another great vegan cookbook from Ms.Goudreau. I have all her cookbooks & use them very often. This is a really well thought out & informative nutritional cookbook as well as a beautiful looking book.

Fabulous!! Nov. 8 2010
By S. Munoz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is amazing! Love the concept, there are tons of pictures and I actually am excited to try every recipe. Most cookbooks I own I try some of the recipes but not all. Every recipe in this book looks delicious, doesn't have crazy health food store ingredients and isn't just another book trying to mimic meat dishes. Colleen actually showcases the vegetables and lets them shine. I've been vegan for a long time and I have a bookshelf full of vegan cookbooks so I know what I'm talking about. I've already tried the beet burgers (which passed the meat eating friends test) and the blueberry ketchup and I'm completely sold that everything in here is going to be fabulous. I've already ordered three more copies for Xmas presents. For a good collection of books I recommend Color Me Vegan, The Vegan Table, Viva Vegan, Vegan a go go and vegan cupcakes take over the world.

She outdid herself! Nov. 3 2010
By LauraV - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I received my copy of "Color me vegan" in the mail yesterday and I couldn't wait to start cooking. I think I read every single recipe and I was excited to see that they were original and covered a very wide range of produce. I was wondering how Colleen was going to manage writing recipes for starters, soups, main courses, side dishes and desserts of every color. Well, she did. From then creamy avocado mousse (delicious green recipe) to the red chard pie (red recipe, of course) , this book is chock full of tips, nutritional information, variations, and even some food history.

I like the fact that you don't have to constraint yourself to the ingredients listed in the recipe. The book packs some much information that you can make your own choices about how you would like your recipe to look and taste like. I recommend that you read the entire recipe, as well as the notes on the top and bottom before you start cooking.The book itself is very easy to read, it has clear instructions and doesn't call for too many ingredients like other books do. The ingredients are easy to find if they aren't in your pantry already. There isn't a picture for every single recipe, but the pictures in the book are really beautiful. They make you want to cook.

If you are new to veganism, this is a good way to start cooking new food. After testing some of this recipes, you will realize that vegan food is not "rabbit food" or bland food. Rather, it is healthful and delicious.Last night I made a pie, a dessert and a vegan cheese. Everything was yummy!

A little disappointing Jan. 3 2011
By lemoncakemeg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have to say, this book is not as great as I was hoping. People seem very enthusiastic with their reviews, but I haven't been all that thrilled with the recipes I've tried. The concept is cool, and it is a beautiful book. Plus, I do agree that instead of trying to make things that emulate meat, she lets the vegetables, beans, tofu, etc, shine on their own. But all of the recipes I've tried have needed serious adjustments. It seems like these recipes weren't tested enough. For instance, I made one of the salads, which I was really excited about, and the dressing was just not nearly enough, nor were some of the ingredients- the salad was unbalanced. Seems like a salad should be easy enough to get right, but it missed the mark.

Anyways, this book is good for inspiration and ideas, but I don't trust the recipes. Luckily, I like to sort of make my own hybrid versions of recipes (after I follow the recipe exactly, first) , so I will still definitely use this book.

Oh, also, the index is terrible, and there are mistakes.

Bottom line- the book needs more editing and testing, imo.

Get it! Dec 13 2010
By Nerdygrl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought it last weekend at Borders, made four recipes: Cajun Red Beans and Rice, Tamale Pie, the pea-guacamole and the banana/date dessert, especially frozen. The Cajun dish was fantastic; it tasted very authentic. I really liked the frozen banana dessert too. The Tamale pie was okay but a little on the dull side. It also asked for lemon juice in the listed ingredients but didn't specify where to use it in the directions. I didn't enjoy the pea-guacamole that much; I found one I liked better in Vegan on the Cheap. On the whole, the recipes look really good and the factoids she includes about the nutrients make for interesting reading. I think her spicing is more on the conservative side, but then again, it might just be my palate because I prefer bolder flavors.

Vegan food is friggin' delicious Jan. 29 2011
By Aunt Vee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great cookbook. Only a month ago, I was an omnivore buying vegetarian cookbooks and magazines to add more vegetables to my diet. Then I decided to do a vegan experiment- could I adopt a vegan diet for a month? I bought this cookbook to help me through the experiment - I wanted to cook vegan food, not just vegan adaptations of my omnivore diet. This book has exceeded my expectations and introduced me to great recipes -I have loved everything I have made from this cookbook and appreciate that the author includes nutritional information. This has really helped me make my diet healthier. I went through the book and tucked in little bookmarks for the recipes I want to try - the book is filled with them. I love the swiss chard curry with the coconut rice and have made this a couple of times now. I haven't tried anything I wouldn't be happy to try again. Other vegan cookbooks have delicious recipes too (Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook but what I particularly appreciated about Color me Vegan is that the author has included delicious recipes with the calorie count. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau has convinced me it is possible to eat delicious and healthy food. And armed with great recipes from this cookbook, I think I can eat a vegan diet - and if you're thinking about becoming a vegan or looking for healthy recipes as a vegan, I think this book will help. I also think this book will help if you're just looking for delicious ways to increase the whole foods in your diet.
