“The collaborative effort of two established bloggers, 500 Vegan Recipes provides curious chefs with an impressive range of recipes, from classic to contemporary. Celine Steen, creator of the popular blog ‘Have Cake Will Travel,’ teams up with seasoned cookbook author, blogger (‘Just the Food’), and colleague Joni Marie Newman to deliver everything from hearty breakfasts to every type of savory entrée imaginable. The quickest of flips through the 500-page guide will have you salivating with tempting titles that turn run-of-the-mill dishes into a memorable affair, such as Pumpkin Tofu Scramble and Peanut Brittle Cookies. Helpful icons indicate gluten- and soy-free dishes, low-fat recipes, and recipes for time-crunched cooks. With a spacious layout and 20 well-organized chapters, 500 is easy to navigate—the difficulty lies in choosing a recipe. … A successful first venture for the duo, it certainly won’t be the last." —VegNews Magazine
Steen, Celine & Joni Marie Newman. 500 Vegan Recipes: An Amazing Variety of Delicious Recipes, from Chilis and Casseroles to Crumbles, Crisps, and Cookies. Fair Winds: Quayside. 2009. 512p. index. ISBN 978-1-59233-403-2. pap. $19.99. COOKING
Bloggers Steen and Newman (Cozy Inside: Delicious & Comforting Cruelty Free Recipes) open with reasons to become vegan—your health, the environment, and your pocketbook—and a list of animal-derived ingredients (e.g., casein, lactose, and whey) useful for new vegans. Icons denote 30-minute, low-fat, gluten-free, and soy-free recipes. A helpful list of “new-to-you” ingredients, like nondairy butter, nutritional yeast, and nut butters, accompanies the simple instructions, which include ingredient measurements in both metric and standard. A good source for the starter vegan. - Library Journal, March 15, 2010

I often suffer from lack of energy and the Banana Oat Morning Fuel recipe has now become my favorite. Not only does it keep me full for hours and hours, it tastes amazing and gives me more energy than any other breakfast I have ever had and it only takes a minute to prepare! It has a taste similar to a chocolate pudding but in a breakfast smoothie form.. what more could you want from a fast and easy breakfast? The Seitan en Croute is divine. This is the best seitan recipe I have ever made.. not only does it smell amazing while baking but it tastes like heaven! The author Joni has given this recipe on her blog, so if you would like to taste something before you buy it, try this! You won't be disappointed.
The only thing I could find to complain about this book (and it's hard believe me!) is the lack of photographs of the food inside. The authors however, have created a flickr group where you can find lots of images of recipes from this book. The back of the book is covered with snap shots of food from the book also.
I initially doubted the pairing of tahini with chocolate, but the chocolate tahini quick bread is absolutely fantastic. The roasted lima beans are now a staple, as is the curried cauliflower puree. I also loved the chimichangas, tofu fries, stuffed tomatoes, couscous bake, mushroom pate, skillet cornbread, saag baag and kahlua.
This book is well worth it, providing a variety of recipes ranging from simple breakfasts to meals better suited to entertaining. I whole-heartedly recommend buying this one!
