However, don’t expect to lose weight with these recipes. Lots and lots of nuts are called in most of the recipes, adding fat and calories. Grant you, nuts give you good fatty acids, however, calories still count if you need to watch your weight.
I would give five-stars, but there a two things that prevent me from doing it : 1) the lack of photos (and the fact that some of the few photos included are pictures of vegetables, and not of recipes); 2) the fact that this is a gluten-free book. I noticed there were gluten-free meals in the book when I read the back page, but I hadn’t counted on ALL recipes being gluten-free. Not suffering from any gluten-related ailment, I was a bit disappointed not to find a goot seitan recipe in there. But I do realise this can be a bonus for many people. Let’s just say, then, the missing star is because of the lack of photos.
Very comprehensive book, with many recipes, organized according to type of food, for ex. soups, main dishes, dips etc. It makes finding what you are looking for quick and painless.
Many of the recipes I already had and used, however the majority were new and I've enjoyed trying them.
Ingredient list and instructions and clear and well organized, and I like the little 'tips and tricks' provided in the corner of the page, often associated with changes that can be made to the recipe for ex. to make it gluten free.
Very few pictures and the ones used are stock images that have nothing to do with the recipes in question. I have several other vegan cookbooks, and part of the fun, I think, is to be inspired by the recipe you're about to cook. It's difficult sometimes to visualize without the pictures, and this was one of the biggest issues for me with this book.
Recipe testing: I am not sure if these were tested for consistency, but the few that I did make turned out either great or not at all. One good example are the onion rings, which I was excited to try, but turned out awful. I wonder if the recipe was incomplete or the author did not test it for consistency, because as is, it's almost impossible to get nice, crispy onion rings. I've tried other recipes, also vegan, and didn't have any problems. I also tried making cashew milk by following the instructions, but ended up with something completely different than described.
Overall, a good book in terms of breadth of content, but definitely not for those that just started a vegan lifestyle or want to try a few recipes. Had I encountered this book when I first started cooking vegan foods, I probably would have never continued. There are much better books out there, with clearer instructions and aspirational photos that truly make you want to cook this at home.
For those already following a vegan lifestyle and familiar with the process and ingredients used, this will add to the list of recipes that can be made successfully at home, and can be modified so that the recipe actually produces the desired result.
I'm so impressed with the taste and textures that come out of this book. I eat with my eyes forsure so I was hesitant about how eager I would be to try the recipes with the lack of photos but everything is just so darn tastey!!! I would strongly recommend this book!!
