The realization that I needed help subbing things started with a recipe for burgers. Vegetarian burgers? No problem. Then after my husband announced his desire to go vegan, he bought some ready-made vegan burgers. While they were tolerable, I'd rather make my own. I'm a DIY kinda girl. And then it hit me... OH CRAP!!! EGGS!!! HOW DO I BIND IT ALL TOGETHER?! And that got me thinking even more... what am I to use for leavening in baked goods in place of eggs? What about moisture? While I knew there were vegan egg substitutes out there, mixed starches can't work for every way one would use eggs. I knew there had to be a way to do it yourself, and different applications for different types of subs. And considering I can't use dairy like yogurt or sour cream to sub for eggs, I was pretty desperate for answers. This book gives them to you. It explains which substitutes work best for each application, and lists plenty of them. It also gives some recipes and ideas for making the substitutions yourself. Now THAT is MY KINDA BOOK! Making my own "sorta yogurt" with my choice of "milk"? Awesome. I can use that in place of eggs in baked goods! Mixing flax seeds and water to sub for eggs? It'll replace your egg, AND it happens to be a great way to get your omega-3s (normally consumed in fish by most people)! I'm looking forward to find my own ways of veganizing foods I already know and love with the information this book has given me.
I'm NOT a fan of store-bought pre-packaged foods. I refuse to subsist on ready-made vegan alternatives, or constantly stuff myself with soy products.Read more ›
I have been a vegan for 12+ years, so I really wasn't all that interested in how to substitute things in recipes. I was interested in the recipes, and they don't disappoint! The Cheesy No Cook Sauce is worth the cost of the book alone! Everything I have tried so far has been delicious. And, even though I have been a vegan for a while, I still read the "substitutions" guides with interest and was reminded of and learned a few things, so experienced vegans shouldn't discount the book because they think they have been there done that. This book is perfect for both newbies AND experienced vegans alike!
p.s. The book itself looks absolutely adorable! <3
