Review

WeBeSharin.com, 2/1/12
“It’s a great book for anyone thinking of looking into one or both of the dietary changes.”

Publishers Weekly, 2/20/12
“Whether readers are following a gluten-free vegan lifestyle due to medical, health, or ethical reasons, they're likely to find O'Brien's follow-up to The Gluten-Free Vegan to be a helpful resource when the craving for comfort food hits…Folks in search of inventive riffs (she's even included a kid-friendly chapter with ‘chicken’ nuggets that uses tempeh instead of poultry) are sure to find a few new favorites here.”
 
Tuscan Citizen, 2/18/12
“This nifty cookbook proves the point that living a gluten-free lifestyle doesn’t mean giving up many of your favorite foods…Complete with information about gluten-free ingredients such as flours and sweeteners, their nutrients, and how they affect a recipe’s texture and flavor, this cookbook serves up gluten-free, vegan dishes that are easy and fun to prepare without sacrificing taste…I loved this cookbook.”
 
BizIndia.net
“Get this book!”
 
Library Journal, 3/2/12
“Recommended to readers looking for gluten-free, vegan versions of their favorite homemade dishes.”
 
EatDrinkBetter.com, 3/5/12
Gluten-Free Vegan Comfort Food reworks a lot of classics and makes a good addition to a cookbook library.”

Technorati.com, 3/7/12
“Whether following a diet restricted by health concerns or conscience, cooks and home chefs will find a nice variety of tempting recipes that are so good, we forget that they are ‘healthy.’”

Portland Oregonian, 3/12/12
“Recipes, which include things like Mac and Cheese and Chocolate Cupcakes…evoke memories of Mom's home cooking…The book includes lists of foods to avoid, pantry essentials and easy-to-understand explanations of unusual ingredients and celiac disease—essential stuff for people who are new to the gluten-free world.”
 
Portland Press Herald, 3/14/12
“If you're thinking of trying on veganism to see if it fits, this is one of those books that might help you make the transition. O'Brien includes a helpful glossary of ingredients that may be unfamiliar to you, such as teff flour and organic agave cactus nectar, and explains how they are used…There are also plenty of tempting recipes—a butternut squash soup, mashed sweet potatoes, guacamole—that can be made with what you already have in your kitchen.”
 
InfoDad.com, 3/15/12
“People who are really determined to have food that is both vegan and gluten-free will applaud the recipes.”

TheGlutenFreeVegan.com, 3/27/12
“Those new to the diet, or friends and family who are struggling with good ideas to make for those following a gluten-free and vegan diet, would really benefit from these creative yet simple recipes.”

The Year of the Vegan (blog), 4/9
“The recipes themselves are easy enough to follow, and weren't difficult to make…A good book to have GF or not, vegan or not.”
 
San Francisco Book Review, 5/2/12
“Stuffed with easy to prepare, traditional comfort foods—with the not-so-traditional adjustment of using all gluten-free and vegan ingredients…If you’re just starting out on the trail of allergen-free cooking, this book is easy to read and the recipes extremely easy to follow. If you’re a pro at this, ingredients will be familiar and you can finally find some recipes for those treasured family favorites!”

Taste for Life, May 2012

If I could give this book 2 ratings, I would rate it a 3-4 for beginners, and a 1-2 for me personally. Here's why:

Though I am not a chef or a professional baker, food intolerances and digestive issues led me to spend much time in the kitchen trying out new recipes and inventing my own. I like being adventurous, but once in a while need a base recipe to inspire me, which is how I ended up with this book. I guess I should have done more research prior to buying it, but I got it on a whim along with another book--"gluten-free, vegan comfort foods" sounded promising, just what I craved in that moment (note to self: don't shop for cookbooks while hungry!). Moreover, books that are both GF and vegan friendly aren't that common, so I figured I'd give it a try. I soon realized that it is really a book designed for people just entering into the GF and vegan world. As for myself, I find that there isn't much in it that gets me excited.

There were a few recipes I thought were good: the corn bread is good, the pumpkin pizza crust is interesting, the banana macadamia nut curry is fun and not something I would have thought of on my own, love the lemon lavender flavor combo for the shortbread (anything with lavender is usually good for me), and the chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting are alright.

When I look for a cookbook though, I look for recipes that are different, things I wouldn't have thought of trying out, interesting flavor combinations, things that are generally difficult to adapt to the GF and vegan diet. This book has a lot of useless filler recipes in that sense--like bruschetta, guacamole, and salads which are usually naturally GF and vegan... When did salads become considered a "comfort food" anyhow?

Having different dietary needs in your family can be quiet difficult.

Finding a cookbook that covers them all can be even more difficult.

That's why I was happy to get the opportunity to review Gluten-Free Vegan Comfort Food.

My family and I are NOT vegans, but we are eating more and more veggies. So, since two of the dietary needs in our family are gluten free and lactose free.. I had a feeling I could really enjoy cooking out of this book.

It's packed with over 120 yummy recipes that are your basic `comfort food' wants.

Recipes include:
* Pumpkin Waffles
* Broccoli-Cheese Soup
* Mac and Cheese
* Lasagna and Meatless Meatballs
* Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Cookies
* And many more!

As I sat down and flipped through the pages to familiarize myself with the book, I quickly realized that this cookbook was going to stretch me as a cook and expand my pantry items. But that's a good thing because I'm always willing to try out new ingredients.

Chia Seeds, coconut milk, and Tempeh are some of the items I have yet to cook with so far, but thanks to Susan's definitions at the beginning, I have an idea of what they are and how they are used in recipes, which was a big help.

I'm going to be honest and say that I don't know if we as a family would ever go vegan, but I was excited to see that all of the recipes in this book were so simple and easy to do, it didn't matter.

I liked how the book was neatly laid out with recipes clear and easy to read. I also enjoyed the beautiful recipe pictures that were included in the center. I'm a visual person, so the more pictures the better.

I decided to try out Susan's recipe for Mock Egg Salad.

I understand that it can be difficult to acquire all the ingredients, but for someone who eats strictly gluten free and vegan it is SO worth it. I hadn't had mac n cheese in years and I almost died when I made and tried it - so delicious! There are so many good ideas and variations of things I used to enjoy, this book has truly helped me fall in love with food and cooking again.

I got this book from the library but enjoyed it so much I had to buy my own copy. I haven't made all the recipes, but the ones I tried all turned out fantastic-- especially the spinach-lentil enchiladas and mock tuna salad. I cook for my parents and am always trying to sneak in extra vegetables (they're a little resistant to plain steamed broccoli) and this book allows me to do that easily!
The author also does a great job of taking the classics and tweaking the flavors just enough to make them interesting, like adding cinnamon to marinara sauce... something I would've never thought to do, but it adds fabulous depth and je ne sais quoi.

I love this book as being a celiac and trying to eat vegan as well is a challenge. There are quite a few receipes I use each week but have adapted them to my families taste with good results. I needed ideas and there are certainly lots of those so you wont be disappointed. Be brave and remember a receipe is a guide so play with your food! A well read and well used book in our house.

I am a non cook but got tired of constantly getting contamination issues with having Celiac Disease. I know have easy recipes that I can cook which do not take a lot of time, effort, or money.
