Book Description

Oct. 28 2005
In Vegan with a Vengeance, Isa Chandra Moskowitz, host of the community access vegan cooking show The Post Punk Kitchen, brings the do-it-yourself, community-driven ethos of punk rock into the kitchen. Her cooking philosophy embraces being kind to animals (all recipes are completely animal-product free) and your wallet-while being creative and having fun in the process. She emphasizes staying clear of corporate brand-name foods, and says that cooking should be an innovative, experimental, and completely real experience. This one-of-a-kind cookbook offers 125 recipes for all meals of the day, from stuffed mushrooms to tofu pizza, gingerbread cupcakes to pasta with "alfreda sauce," and is full of tips and tricks on how to keep your diet vegan, inexpensive, and liberated.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

To appreciate this quirky vegan cookbook, readers must welcome the author's offhand, rambling style. A chatty Brooklynite who hosts her own public access cooking show, she scatters stories about her mother, her friends and her politics among recipes for goodies like Fresh Corn Fritters and Curried Split Pea Soup. In one anecdote, she writes that her mother liked the scones from "one of those overpriced French cafes in Union Square," prompting the author to create Glazed Orange scones in her mother's honor, and the sweet, rich result rivals the average "overpriced café" model. BBQ Pomegranate Tofu is actually baked, not barbecued, but still the tofu is rich and smoky, terrific over rice or packed into heroes. Even better, the vegan iterations of Spanakopita and Seitan-Portobello Stroganoff so closely approximate the traditional versions that even the pickiest eaters would happily trade one for the other. And although there's no chicken broth in Matzoh Ball Soup, the vegetable stock is hearty enough to cure the fiercest cold. Best of all, and rare in a vegan cookbook, the author provides several appealing dairy-free desserts that are tasty enough to fool most omnivores, yet unique enough to thrill any vegan who just can't face another tofu ice cream bar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious! Aug. 31 2006
By S. Wise
I first borrowed this book from the library, and upon trying a few recipes, I had to buy a copy of my own! So far, I have made:

* Fronch Toast (Waaayyy better than any tofu or banana substitution for the real thing)

* The Best Pumpkin Muffins Ever (they certainly live up to their name)

* Asparagus and Sun-Dried Tomato Frittata (I followed one of the author's variations and it was great!)

* Gigantoid Peanut Butter Cookies (OMG - I substituted whole wheat flour to make these even more nutritious!)

* Seitan (this turned out great - I'm making the Jerk Seitan tonight!)

Only a couple of quips, but nothing worth giving anything less than a 5-star rating...I found that there was a little too much oil in the baked goods, but I substituted applesauce for most of the oil and the recipes still turned out great. There also isn't any nutritional data for each recipe.

Better get back to making more recipes! I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for simple vegan recipes that are pretty normal, and that can be shared with meat-eaters who usually snub vegan food.

5.0 out of 5 stars Newbie Friendly Jan. 12 2007
This was the first vegan cookbook I bought and it has not disappointed me yet. I was so excited the first time I made the Falafels. They were great! The recipes I have thus far made have been flavourful and easy to make. Isa's side notes and tips are much appreciated as are her notes on egg replacers and the recipe for Seitan rocks.

A great beginner book with a nice variety.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Cookbook I Use Every Week Aug. 7 2006
This is an excellent Vegan cookbook that barely gets to sit on the shelf as I am using it for recipes or at least inspiration all of the time. The food turns out beautifully and the recipes are realistic in terms of both ingredients,and time spent cooking. My only complaint would be a little too many tofu recipes and not enough beans, but that is just a personal preference. That being said the Tofu Ricotta is fantastic. If you are a Vegan or love a Vegan you must have this cookbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best vegan cookbook! Nov. 29 2010
By Anya
If you are new to veganism and/or are looking for some great recipes (vegan or not), you should buy this book! The recipes are freakin' fantastic, and even if you don't make any of the recipes, the author's writing style is so engaging that you can just read the book from cover to cover like a good novel. Some favourites from the book include: Banana split pudding brownies, Pizza Dough, Cajun Fries and Mocha Chip Muffins.

The great thing about this book is that it doesn't require particularly exotic ingredients and/or equipment. Live in small-town USA? This is the book for you. As well, the recipes are so good that your omni friends won't even know (or care) that the recipes are meat and dairy free.

3.0 out of 5 stars I was expecting more. April 21 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First let me say that reading this book is great. Isa really is interesting and a breath of fresh air. The actual recipes though did not impressed me. Some are fail as if they were not tested (many others on her forums agree), others are fine. She uses a lot of hard to get products unless you live next to a vegan grocery, I would have liked to see more home made food with easier to come by products. Overall the book is okay but I don't use it a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy This Book Immediately Nov. 19 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Buy this book now. I have made so many wicked recipes from this book, it's never let me down. And although it isn't necessary, it's written like you imagine a cook book from your awesome cool vegan pal would be.

I make the BBQ Pomegranate Tofu so often the recipe is basically memorized. I could bathe in this sauce, and in fact just typing this out has my mouth watering. My kids (young) and husband (omnivore) love it too. Just great.

I've made the Seitan, it's really good. I used it to make the Jerk Seitan several times, also very good.

The Mango Tofu is awesome and summery and savoury.

The Samosas, though labor intensive, are also great. Made them for a pot luck and my family raved, even my red meat loving parents.

The chickpea and spinach curry is great, I would make it more often if my son didn't have such a hatred for chickpeas (he's crazy right?)

Every cookie I've made is delish, the gigantoid peanut butter oatmeal cookies being my absolute fave. And no fear about eating the cookie dough, which I do plenty of!

I have all of Isa's books and they are the tried and true, I will basically buy her books automatically upon release, no questions asked. Thank you Isa!

Apart from a few meh recipes, everything in this book is amazing! Isa is a food magician. My meat and cheese loving family eats everything and loves it. The cookies and desserts are the best I've ever made. Buy this!

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't be disappointed! June 21 2007
This is my first of several vegan cookbooks, and it's the one I go back to most often. The recipes are simple, easy, and don't call for any bizzarre or pricey ingredients. The results are ALWAYS delicious!!
