Product Description

Review

"My one week experiment with veganism, inspired by Lauren Ulm's book Vegan Yum Yum, was a revelation to me. I not only survived, but thrived without dairy and meat in my diet... Vegan Yum Yum has a huge range of inspiring recipes. The photo of the seitan black corn bean burger is pure, classy food porn that makes its carnivorous rivals in the fast food ads look like cheap white trash. I was worried about what the desserts would be like as I'm usually a cream fiend, but I need not have feared as I fell head over heels for the blueberry grunts recipe."

--Jackie Gorman, elephant journal

Format: Paperback
The recipes are fairly simple and delicious. I have tried several and not been disappointed. The Hurry Up Alfredo Sauce on p. 195 has become a regular staple in our house and is absolutely scrumptious! Thankfully there is a photo accompanying each recipe.

A vegetarian for 35 years, I have just recently explored veganism. This book has the most wonderful recipes in it and recommend it for those, like me, who are new to vegan eating and want real taste in their food.

I've tried about a third of the recipes in this book since getting it and most were just amazing. Some of them are even weekly staples for me (the hurry-up Alfredo, for instance, gets made weekly). There were a few recipes I just didn't like at all and won't be making again, but the good far outweigh the bad. The recipes I enjoyed the most include the Stuffed Banana Berry French Toast, Sweet Chili Lime Tofu, Miniature Napoleons with Eggplant Creme, Moroccan Spiced Root Vegetable Home Fries, Smoky Miso Tofu, and the Blueberry Grunts. There were a few I didn't like too much, including the Nearly Raw Tahini Noodles (too earthy tasting for my likes), Baked Mac and Cheeze (there's a better version on her food blog called Mac and Cheeze take 2), and the Creamy Broccoli Dal (much better with a few tweaks).

Lauren has a vast collection of great recipes on her blog as well and most of the recipes that I've tried in her book are winners as well. There is a serious problem with the layout of this book. Some recipes span 2-3 pages, which can be a major hassle in the kitchen for those of us with only two hands. I make it a practice to read the entire recipe before cooking and make sure now that if ingredients and direction span more than one page to group the ingredients based on stages in the recipe to avoid any time wasted or mistakes. Hopefully if this book undergoes a revision for a future edition this will be taken into consideration. The physical book itself isn't very kitchen-friendly.

I would definitely recommend this book to people who enjoy being in the kitchen and have the time. Most of the recipes aren't ready in 30 minutes, despite what the recipe says, but are definitely worth the extra time when dinner doesn't have to be on the table on such short notice.

I picked this up a while ago, I was looking for a new cookbook and liked the title. I really like this book because it has a good variety of quick and more fancy recipes and doesn't use many obscure ingredients. I really love some of the super quick (like 10 minute!) pasta recipes, great for when I'm feeling lazy.
