Subtitled “An amazing variety of delicious recipes, from chilis and casseroles to crumbles, crisps, and cookies,” 500 Vegan Recipes lives up to its name. This is a terrific cookbook for both new and tried-and-true vegans. There are recipes to match every mood and every cooking style, and there are ideas here to keep you inspired for years to come.
There are now so many vegans and, more importantly, vegan cookbooks that authors are branching out into other specialties. Appetite for Reduction delves into food that is not only free of meat and animal products, but also low in saturated fat and sugar. But not to worry, there is no corresponding loss in variety or flavor.
Local Bounty: Seasonal Vegan Recipes, by Devra Gartenstein, offers a variety of recipes to help you enjoy fruits and vegetables at their individual seasonal peaks. Organized by season, each chapter starts with a list of that season’s produce, divided by early, mid-, and late season.
Comfort food varies from person to person, as it usually involves individual memories of being cared for by a parent or a grandparent and the special foods that they lovingly shared. But there are some dishes which are more universal, and that’s what Alicia C. Simpson’s Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food is all about. From breakfast to dessert, this cookbook offers delicious vegan versions of classic comfort foods.
Vegan cooking can be time-consuming, especially if you’re trying to convert a traditional recipe into something meat-, dairy-, and egg-free. But it is possible to make delicious and healthy vegan food without spending all day in the kitchen, and The 30-Minute Vegan is a good place to start.
Asian cuisine is sometimes very elaborate, which can be a turn-off for anyone who doesn’t want to spend all day in the kitchen. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming to cook good, vegan, Asian food, especially if you have a copy of The 30-Minute Vegan’s Taste of the East, which features classic and creative recipes from all over Asia.
