Buyer beware! Oct. 5 2007
By L. Bermeo - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the first vegan cookbooks I purchased several years ago, and have turned to frequently over the years, is Very Vegetarian (currently available new and used from Amazon), also by Jannequin Bennett - executive chef of TJ's restaurant in Richmond Virginia's 5-star Jefferson Motel. It is an attractive, well-written collection of over 300 plant-based recipes that I have enjoyed perusing as well as using. For those new to vegan cooking, Ms. Bennett's book contains helpful supplemental material introducing what may be unfamiliar ingredients, the recipes are extraordinarily well-written, and 16 color-plates throughout the book help one picture just how enticingly vegan food can be presented. Most importantly, recipes I have tried have been delicious and well received by my family! Naturally, I was excited to see that Ms. Bennett had a "new" collection out this year. What a disappointment to discover that THE COMPLETE VEGAN KITCHEN IS A RETITLED, PAPERBACK EDITION OF HER PREVIOUS BOOK. If I didn't already own the hardback edition, this would have been an exciting new addition to my now extensive collection of vegan cookbooks. It has the same interesting foreword by Olympic Athlete of the Century, Carl Lewis, all the same wonderful recipes, and is illustrated with the same beautiful photos - just presented in a colorful paperpack cover this time around. If you don't already own Very Vegetarian, I highly recommend The Complete Vegan Kitchen.Very Vegetarian

A great cookbook for lovers of tasty, healthy food. Feb. 6 2008
By Eve - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a great cookbook, and you don't have to be vegan to appreciate it. Who wouldn't want to eat food this good? Everything I've made from the book so far has been terrific. What I especially like is that it does not call for any "imitation" foods. For example, the quesadillas don't use vegan cheeze, but rather a tasty bean dip to replace cheese, along with yummy sauteed vegetables. The blueberry bran muffins are fantastic and addictive. The section on vegetables includes simple but delicious preparations of veggies you know and love, but with a new twist. The roasted broccoli is so delicious you could eat a whole head a day. The brown rice-edamame-seaweed salad was so good, and looks so pretty. The author is a chef, after all, and she really knows how to make things taste good and look nice. I also really enjoyed just reading the text, as there is a lot of great cooking knowledge imparted here. I learned to cook short grain brown rice using the "excess water" technique, and turned out lovely, al dente brown rice in only 20 minutes. This is a keeper, for sure.

Not that great... Oct. 14 2009
By R. Harris - Published on
Format: Paperback
When I was brand new to veganism, I carefully looked through all of amazon's Vegan cookbooks to find on that would give me insight and instruction to cooking as a vegan. After the glowing reviews and the all-encompassing title, I purchased this particular cookbook and hit the kitchen hard, sans animal products, with hope and excitement. I'm a foodie, and I was excited to embark on a grand new culinary adventure that aligned with my beliefs.

Oh, what an underwhelming experience! After experimenting with several recipes, I learned not to waste my ingredients. The recipes are unimaginative, bland and unimpressive. There is no...body...and supurb taste you normally associate with fruits and vegetables done well. Each recipe I try in any cookbook recieves a rating based on 5 stars, and no recipe in this cookbook has gotten a rating above a 3.

Save your money, and go get a real vegan cookbook. I recommend Veganomicon, it's supurb.

perfect for beginners Sept. 21 2008
By Turangalydia - Published on
Format: Paperback
Enough of the recipes can be made with supermarket ingredients so you won't get discouraged. The recipes we have tried are delicious so anyone (even firmly NOT vegans) can enjoy them. The food is filling so you don't feel deprived. The vegan pate was unbelieveable! Great texture, taste, and healthy too. We also loved the orange chipoltle sauce over tofu. Some of the recipes we found so elegant that we will be serving them for the holidays. There is basic nutritional information, so not only can you understand what is vegan and why, but also basic information that will help to build your pantry as well as kitchen tools. The baking recipes are a little more involving and some will need special ingredients, but Whole Foods, Health Stores, and even has most of these ingredients. Even if you are not commited to this philosophy or lifestyle this cookbook will help to eat healthier without making a ridiculous amount of work for the home cook.

The non-vegan's vegan cookbook. Aug. 10 2009
By Jonathan Walz - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
That's how my sister, a long time vegetarian and on-again off-again vegan, described this cookbook when I showed it to her shortly after I picked it up. I don't mind, though, because that's exactly why I bought it. The sections on proper preparation of things like lentils and soy products (less common in the diets of most omnivores) along with the helpful breakdowns of different oils and non-sugar sweeteners were my chief draws to the book. I'm certain these could be found elsewhere, but having them all collected in one place has been handy for the month plus that I've owned it. The few recipes I've attempted so far have also failed to disappoint, and the vast majority of them are designed to highlight the joys of vegan food and not just to provide ways to simulate a non-vegan experience -- of course, there are standards like vegan smoothies and "milks" as well as vegan alternatives to common pantry items like mayonnaise. I highly recommend this book to beginning vegans or my fellow meat-eaters who are looking to expand their culinary horizons.
