From surf & turf to ice cream pie, 200 animal-free recipes for people who love to eat
Vegan cookbook review
No matter how long you’ve been vegan and how well you cook, there are probably still a few off-limits dishes that you remember fondly from childhood – or last year. If this sounds like you, and you’re ready to try making vegan versions of meaty meals, Jenn Shagrin’s Veganize This! is just the cookbook for you.
In chapter 1, you’ll learn how to make seitan taste like any of half a dozen different meats, turn tofu into seafood, create non-dairy cheeses, and hatch chicken-free eggs. These recipes are used throughout the rest of the book.
Chapter 2 offers recipes and tips for fresh egg-free pasta, two different lasagnas, surf and turf, and other meatless main courses. Chapter 3 feeds the vegan munchies with pizza, two kinds of macaroni and cheese, tacos, soups, and even vegan Doritos, while chapter 4 offers special holiday recipes like kugel, green bean casserole, and butternut squash risotto. Chapter 5 has everything for the grill, like pork chops, burgers, steak, and short ribs, and finally chapter 6 covers dessert, including peanut butter pie, homemade marshmallos, brioche, and vegan Twinkies.
Veganize This! includes a number of truly inspired and unusual vegan versions of meat, egg, and cheese dishes. Unfortunately, some of the mock cheeses (like vegan goat cheese) require several store-bought non-dairy items (vegan cream cheese, soy feta, vegan sour cream), which kind of defeats the purpose, but fortunately these are kept to a minimum.
If you’re ready to veganize everything from pork chops to pancetta, you’re ready for Veganize This!
