Lindsay's other books have pros and cons, but I have them on my kindle, and a few hard copy. I highly recommend her HH Abroad book. But I cannot recommend this book to those who already have her other books or have been vegan a while.
I was so excited to receive the book in the mail. I open the package and there is damage in the corner (not Lindsey's fault, just wanted to mention it.)
Then I open it and start flipping. And I become crestfallen. See, I only purchased this book because what I thought it would have is a "How to cook a ton of HH recipes for big events in the most efficient time possible" LIST plus the associated recipes. Similar to what she posted last year on her blog, where, step by step, she helped you make a Thanksgiving feast in like 3 hours. I suppose a more accurate description of what I thought the book would be was 10 feasts for various occasions with a Grocery shopping and Prep List.
This is not that. So, right off the bat, disappointed. But that was just my bad assumption from the description of the book. Still not Lindsay's fault that I misconstrued.
Still, I was upset. I considered gifting it to someone. But then I was like, wait! There should be like, a bazillion new recipes of awesome in here. So I crack it open again to Thanksgiving.
Okay, umm... A lot of these recipes sound familiar...that one is a downright repeat...so is that one... OMG. 50% of the first section is a repeat/copy from her previous books.
Then the next section...same issue....and the next section, again.... At this point, I become downright irritated and pull out a notebook so I can start counting new vs repeat.Read more ›
One of the reasons I was so excited about this book is because it really does solve the dilemma of what you can make/bring to holiday gatherings when you're a vegan. While a lot of vegan cookbooks do have great recipes that work well for holiday gatherings, it's nice to have so many recipes in one place -- and to especially have easy access to traditional holiday fare like pumpkin pie, cheesecake, sweet potato casseroles, and various dips.
Just be warned that there are a lot of repeat recipes from other HH books. This doesn't bother me since I only own Happy Herbivore Light & Lean: Over 150 Low-Calorie Recipes with Workout Plans for Looking and Feeling Great, but if you own more HH books, you might be disappointed in the number of repeats. I'd say that maybe 1/8 of the recipes are from previous HH books. (The repeats are noted in the headnote to each recipe.Read more ›
You see my wife has medical issues and her doctor put her on this diet of NO meat, NO dairy, and absolutely NO OIL. I said I would do this with her to support. I had no idea what we were in for. The meat and dairy were challenging enough. But the no oil made it very, very hard. We took cooking classes this summer. The instructor always ended up using oil. When you ask how to make the recipe without oil the instructor looked at you like you were from another planet. We kept adjusting the recipes we would learn from class to not use oil and they all ended up tasting like cardboard. In desperation we kept looking and happened to stumble across Lindsay's cook books. Eureka! For us it was like we struck gold as none of Lindsay's recipes contain meat, dairy or oil.
The recipes are pretty easy to do and contain pretty normal ingredients. I thought we were doomed to a life of salad and raw veggies. With Lindsay's cook books we were able to have normal great tasting foods. Pancakes, muffins, meatball subs, burgers, fries, pizza, lasagna, spaghetti-ohs, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cake, and brownies and yes great salads and veggie dishes. CAUTION: If you are new to cooking with plants, it can be challenging getting started. There was an adjustment period where we learned how to use rice, beans and veggies in great tasting meals. I must admit it was lot of hard work at first transitioning to no meat, no dairy and no oil, but well worth it.
For us the cost of her books has been well worth it.Read more ›
