Review

“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. -

So far, I have truly enjoyed everything I've made, and I'm excited about trying many more.
Texas Reader
If you are looking for new faux meats that you can make yourself, this book is filled with non-traditional recipes.

When I first purchased this book, I thought it was going to be just another so-so vegan cookbook.

Full disclosure: I own about 50 vegan cookbooks. It's an addiction I've tried to control, but with no success. So when I say that 500 Vegan Recipes is excellent, I have a good basis for comparison. As soon as I opened this book, I found myself saying, "I'll have to make that this weekend...oh, this too...and this." To me, that's the mark of a good cookbook - recipes that you want to make right away and that use mostly things you have in the pantry anyway. I got the book on Thursday,and this weekend I made the "Red Meat Lasagna," the "Chili Cornbread Pie," the "Butternut Squash with Carmelized Onion, Fennel and Garlic," and the "Butterscotch Pecan Cookies." Everything turned out great. The chili cornbread pie in particular was great because it was mostly opening a few cans (beans, tomato sauce) and mixing up the cornbread topping. I love using unprocessed foods, but sometimes I need a recipe that doesn't begin with "First, get a field and plant some beans. Harvest, dry and then soak and cook them." This was the kind of recipe you could make for a family dinner when you get home from work. This book is going to the top of my cookbook pile.

If I had to only have one Vegan cookbook on my shelves, without a doubt, it would be this one. I am so impressed with the recipes I have tried from this book that I couldn't wait to write up a review. I have been watching the authors flickr stream for the taste testers posting images of the recipes in this book. They are all amazing!

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.

Format: Paperback
This book is worth buying for the soup and bread recipes alone. I'm a novice bread baker, and I still managed to impress with the blooming onion rolls, parsley pesto rolls, dijon thyme bread, mole bread and pull-apart cinnamon rolls. The chilis and the bisques are really hearty, easy and delicious. I have loved every soup that I have made, including the chicken noodle, black bean, sweet potato/pepper/corn bisque, potato leek, carrot and split pea (my favorite split pea soup ever).

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!

Devoted readers of the authors' blogs have eagerly awaited this cookbook. Just as expected, it is a far-ranging and terrificly creative collection. The recipes live at the intersection of Easy to Prepare and Fabulously Tasty. The first two recipes I made - Seitan Bacon and Kale Pesto Pasta - will be going into regular rotation at our house. I am sure many more will follow!

Everything that I have made from this book (so far) has been amazing. Simple to follow and delicious to boot. I think this will be the next "veganomicon," if not better. Veganism made easy and tasty.

I've said it before, I own just about every vegan cookbook ever published, and I love so many of them. But 500 Vegan Recipes has just moved into the #1 space! While there are no pictures in the book (there is a flickr group with plenty), the recipes are more than make up for the absence of pictures! I've made the Pumpkin Fauxage, the Carmelized Onion Tart with Sweet Potato Sage Crust and the Curried Butternut Squash Hummus. They were all amazing, and there are so many more things to try. If you are looking for new faux meats that you can make yourself, this book is filled with non-traditional recipes. The dessert section is amazing, as are the quick breads and yeasted breads sections. Pesto Bagels, Tahini Miso Potato Soup? The list is endless. This is a must own cookbook!

I just purchased the book today and made the Cheater's Mac and Cheese. Wow!! If this is any indication of how tasty the other recipes will be, then we are all in for a real treat! I can't wait to try the cream of tomato soup, biscuits and gravy, chimichangas, lasagna, the salad dressings, the many different breads, and desserts. Thanks for such a great variety of recipes Joni and Celine!
