Vegan cookbook review

Mayim Bialik is an American actress best known for her roles on Blossom and The Big Bang Theory, though she also happens to be a neuroscientist and more importantly—at least from The Veggie Table’s point of view—a vegan mom. Mayim’s Vegan Table is a collection of tips and simple recipes with a slight emphasis on Jewish dishes.

Nearly a third of the book is informational. The first chapter introduces the health, environmental, and ethical reasons to eschew animal products, while Chapter 2 goes into detail about vegan nutrition and what to use in place of milk, cheese, eggs, and meat-based protein. Chapter 3 offers easy meal tips for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, paying particular attention to kids’ nutrition and enjoyment, and Chapter 4 explains how to stock a plant-based kitchen.

The 100+ recipes are divided into 7 chapters:

  1. Breakfast – green smoothie, fruity oatmeal muffins, raisin apricot energy bars…
  2. Soups, salads, and sandwiches – cream of carrot soup, rainbow cabbage salad, quinoa burgers
  3. Snacks, sauces, and dips – zucchini chips, artichoke tapenade, eggplant and red pepper crostini…
  4. Veggies and sides – agaved carrots, corn bread dressing, teriyaki tofu
  5. Entrées – sushi in a bowl, Thai pasta, zucchini pie…
  6. Breads – creamed corn bread, pumpkin bread, soft pretzels…
  7. Desserts – candy cane winter bark, pecan pie truffles, rugelach…

Mayim's Vegan TableWhile it doesn’t offer many surprises for long-time vegans, Mayim’s Vegan Table is a good introduction to veganism for newbies, especially when there are kids involved.
