All the recipes are low-fat, simple to prepare, and meat and dairy free. I would recommend this cookbook to anyone
Before you begin though you need to have certain items on hand that are generally not found in the average pantry these days: agar flakes, arrowroot powder, carob powder, cacao, almond flour, lecithin, soyagen, oat flour(directions to make your own included in book, tofu, pimentos, and various other things. All obtainable in your local Whole Foods store, Trader Joe's, Henry's, or online.
NO recipe in this book uses dairy products. If a recipe calls for a milk or cheese sauce, they include their own version using various ingredients to produce a similar flavor, texture, or comparable component. This book is most useful for the fast, since the variety of vegetables suggested in the recipes could be expanded with today's produce availability. A lifelong vegan would want more but this is a good base to start with.
A lot of the guidelines for the 'Daniel Fast' say no corn chips, however, the recipe in this book calls for baking the uncooked tortillas after brushing with water and sprinkling with spices. NO frying there! Even tells you how to make various Soy Milks and Graham Crackers which are great while on the fast. Afterwards you can use all of the healthy bread recipes that are in here.
I've tried less than half the recipes in the book... simply because the ones I have tried are SO GOOD that I want them again and again. For example, two recipes I use on a regular basis are the "Sunflower Sour Cream" (this tastes AWESOME on baked potatoes) and the "Savory Bouquet" salad dressing (YUMMY!).
The recipes are so good, that even my meat-lover friends enjoy vegan meals when they come to my house. In fact, the "Pottage Du Fromage" (cheesy broccoli soup) is frequently requested by my non-vegan guests. One friend told me "I can't believe it doesn't have cheese in it! It tastes better than any broccoli cheese soup I've ever had."
You can't go wrong by getting this book. And, once you start using it, you'll probably find yourself doing what I do... making it your primary go-to resource for vegan meals.

This is one of the best vegan cookbooks I have ever used. It's older and does not have any photos. But the quality of the recipes can't be excelled. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Randy
