Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

A diet with no animal products can seem utterly bewildering until you know the ropes. Consider Conveniently Vegan to be the ropes. Not only does it tell you exactly what such popular vegetarian foods as amaranth, bulgur, and quinoa really are (a tiny yellow-brown grain; dried and toasted wheat berries; and a small, nutty-tasting seed, respectively), it shows how to shop for and prepare them. Better still, it offers weekly menu plans, specific dishes high in calcium and iron (two nutrients tough to get enough of without meat and dairy foods), and dozens of recipes for soups, salads, main courses and desserts.

Format: Paperback
Admittedly, this cookbook amounts to little more than an extended vegan pamphlet (or 'zine for those of you indie-pub types). Having said that, however, I will tell you what this book does well, something precious few vegan cookbooks bother with. It makes vegan eating possible for poor students, working stiffs, and others with little time to cook and limited access to farmer's markets, co-ops, or overpriced yuppie organic health food stores.

Now, not all vegan cookbooks are complicated and not all vegan recipes require exotic foods. However, very few authors ever suggest using the kinds of convenience ingredients found in this book. Typically, and for good reasons, they advocate using only the freshest of the fresh organic, happy hippie food products from the aforementioned stores. Moreover, this book is not overloaded with the whys and how-tos of vegan eating, something I find pretentious, militant, and redundant.

You do not have to flip through this book to find one or two time-saving, inexpensive, short ingredient list recipes; all of these recipes are such. The end results are not bland, but they are also not the wacky-far-out flavors that some associate with any kind of alternative eating, be it ethnic or ethical, making it an excellent starter book for those looking to try a strict vegetarian diet who don't want to be overwhelmed by the exoticism and aggressive politics of even some of the best vegan books.

This is a wonderful cookbook, very easy recipes with ingredients you can find at most any store. I have made 5 or 6 in the last few weeks....our favorites are mexican noodle casserole, and the quinoa and sweet potato patties. I highly recommend this book.

I really like this cookbook as it contains a great variety of vegan convenience food recipes. All are therefore low-fat or no-fat, 100% cholesterol- free, and kind to animals! (Not to mention really fast!!) I highly recommend this book to anyone, regardless of your particular persuasion! GET IT--TODAY!!

This book is wonderful for the working family. Although a few of the recipes are uninteresting, the majority are simple and delicious. This book is a great reference for new and veteran vegans.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I received this book 2 days ago and I have found it to be exactly what I am looking for. I am often too busy to cook and shop in many places trying to find ingredients. This book has recipes that are very quick to prepare and contain ingredients that you can find in just about any grocery store. An added bonus is the nutritional content of each recipe (although I wish it gave info on sugar). I usually use only 5-10% of the recipes in my other vegetarian cookbooks, but with this one I see lots of recipes I like and can quickly prepare after a long day of work when time is limited. So far this is my favorite.

Format: Paperback
Truly a cheap vegan cookbook! I own several cookbooks and a lot call for expensive, sodium-high meat analogs. This books is creative, simple, with easily-found ingredients. I'm about to order my THIRD copy (my 2nd is starting to fall apart!). I recommend this book to anyone on a budget, especially young families and college kids. You don't have to be vegan to love this book!!!! Many of my non-vegan friends and family and treasured the recipes themselves. Easily my favorite cookbook.
