This book is jammed full of wonderful recipes! I am not a vegan, but cook increasingly so and really needed a good vegan cookbook--1,000 Vegan Recipes is it!
This book has everything, including a recipe for seitan. I just bought seitan and was taken aback at its cost--$5.00 for 8 ounces! It was delicious, however and I planned to buy it again. Now, however, with the recipe Robertson provides, I can make my own which will be much cheaper and most likely, much better!
I like the explanations for all things vegan throughout the book.
There are tons of recipes I cannot wait to make. I have other vegetarian/vegan books, but sense this one will be my "go-to" cookbook!
From the author of the award winning book, HARMONIOUS ENVIRONMENT: BEAUTIFY DETOXIFY & ENERGIZE YOUR LIFE, YOUR HOME & YOUR PLANET.
I think one of my favourite things about the book as well is its consistent and concise format for presenting the recipes. I really don't have a lot of time to waste on reading pages and pages of text as some cook books tend to do with ingredients and directions spread out all over the place. Instead, every recipe in this book has a descriptive title followed by a very short 1-2 sentence giving an overview of the recipe, followed by the ingredient list in order that they appear in the recipe, followed by a numbered list of each of the steps. That is all that is needed, and it is perfect in my opinion, no babbling stories, no pictures randomly splattered around, just exactly what you need to make delicious meals right where you need it. I have been cooking for a while, but for the newer cooks there are also sections which describe the methodologies and techniques in more detail if needed.
I really don't know how Robin Roberston managed to make so many incredible vegan recipes and put them together here, it is a true masterpiece which makes being vegan easy for anyone, and non-vegans will love this book too. I hope you find my review useful and take my advise to BUY THIS BOOK!
