Editorial Reviews

Review

"College just became a little bit easier with PETA's Vegan College Cookbook" - VegNews blog

"will give any real-world, on-the-go student or young professional great recipe ideas to stay vegan and well-fed even when they don't have time to think." - DC Vegan

" I'm pretty anti-cookbook because I feel most recipes are way too complicated and expensive, but this cookbook certainly debunks that theory. In fact, most of the recipes have about 5 or less ingredients and every recipe looks super quick, super easy, and super cheap!" - Eating Consciously

"I think the "spotlights" are great. They give a bunch of fun ideas to jazz up cheap ingredients. I know a lot of people that lived on ramen when we were in school! I bet they would have loved some healthier and tastier options." - Say Yes To Salad

"If you are in college and vegan, this is the cookbook to buy! If you're not in college and not vegan, but just looking for an easier way to eat healthy and perhaps don't know how, this cookbook gives you a ton of simple, fast, and healthy recipes." - Carrots n Cake

"I think this would be great for college students who are looking for healthy alternatives to crap college food. Lets face it, most college students have trouble making Ramen (no offense to some of you out there who CAN cook). I think this book has some great meal ideas that are quick, healthy, and VEGAN." - Run, Live and Enjoy

"This book will give you some insight and motivation to keeping your diet vegan while staying up late, being around party people, and by being under the gun of deadlines." - Hello Veggie

"I realized that this cookbook was actually completely perfect for this time of my life. No, I'm not living in a dorm with limited space and cooking utensils, but I am definitely short on time." - Vegan Strong

"...it is encouraging cooking and sticking true to oneself and beliefs – especially as the ultimate visitor in a processed food, meat lovers world." - Vegan Visitor

"this book is great for the college vegan and beyond. it's informative, and written in a fun and inviting way. there is nothing intimidating - i thumbed through the book and felt totally comfortable with tackling any of the recipes." - Miss V''s Vegan Cookbook

If so then this is for you. I looked over this in the bookstore and the things that stood out to me were several pages on how to make a peanut butter and banana sandwich, how to make a vegan grilled cheese, and how to make "poor folks" cinnamon rolls (answer: white bread with margarine sugar and cinnamon). No thanks. other things in the cookbook may be more complicated (and...tastier?) but as a college student with no kitchen and only a blender to my name, I can be more creative and healthy than this on my own. also, faux meats and cheese are *expensive* for a college budget. (And get quickly lost in the dorm fridge)... better to spend on nutritional yeast which will perk up popcorn, pasta, and soups. Then again for a first-time vegan this is possibly adequate and I could be a food snob. In short, vegan food snobs, this is not the book for you. :)

This book may be worth checking out from the library or borrowing from a friend, but don't waste your money. Far too many of the recipes are anything but, e.g. microwave a Boca burger and put it on bread with condiments, put jelly and vegan cream cheese on a bagel and smoosh it together, etc. etc. Any college student is smart enough to figure most of these recipes out on his/her own without shelling out the cash. The authors claim all the ingredients are cheap but often rely on fake meats/cheeses/etc which simply aren't in a college student's everyday budget. In addition, almost all of the little blurbs before each recipe rely on very tired stereotypes about college life that try so hard to be funny and unique but fall flat and get old quick. E.g. in the breakfast section, nearly all of the recipe blurbs assume you're hungover, and in others many assume that you want to avoid studying at all costs, etc. There are a rare few recipes worth noting, but I would recommend the Student's Go Vegan Cookbook or even [...] before this.

This is another PETA hit. Well worth owning. I am lonnng past college age, but got this for some quick ideas for weekends or nights there wasn't much time to cook. It is great for this.

It does use a lot of faux meats and cheeses as you might expect. There are recipes without these though.

The recipes I've tried so far were hits - not just with myself but the family and I'm going to try to upload a photo of the peanut butter cup pie from p.87. OH MAN. You can sell this stuff by the slice an make a fortune. It's UBER GOOD!!!

If you are in college and vegan or if you just want some really, really quick and easy TASTY meals - this is the book to get. Honestly, I wish I could afford to by several hundred to hand out on our local college campus. Great food - fast and all you need is a microwave and a blender. There is no reason you can't be vegan! :)

I read a lot of nasty reviews before I bought this book, and honestly, I don't think they're entirely warranted.

First of all, it is NOT a cookbook per se. You're not going to find gourmet food options for the advanced vegan. Think it is more as an idea book for snacks, smoothies, quick meals and desserts for a college student without access to a stove or oven. I really think people have been over-reacting to the lack of sophisticated meals in this book. Again - consider your audience: student. broke. no stove. no oven.

I found the recipes to be pretty basic, but def easy to prepare without a lot of whoo-ha. Great for a student who needs a quick meal before class or in the dorm. They make solid use of brown rice and beans (great protein and fiber content), as well as tofu (which, admittedly, may be hard for the average student to find). I really did like the attempt to include a few sweet treats. The cafe at school will be helpful for your basics, but dessert will be nearly impossible to come by. Knowing that you've got yummy chocolate cake or rice krispie treats at home or wrapped in your bag helps a student not to feel deprived.

If I were writing this book, I would have added a section on cafeteria options: basics that can be found in most school cafeterias. If you're forced to may for a a meal plan (as many freshman are), it would be useful to know what you can take from the cafeteria to round out the recipes included in the book, i.e. fruit, plain rice, salad fixings, steamed veggies, etc. I read complaints that the recipes used too many sub-foods (like vegan sour cream, cheese, etc.) But, remember, this is a book for college student with limited resources...

My girlfriend and I found this gem while browsing through vegetarian cookbooks at a local bookstore. PETA may have the ability to encourage young people to explore vegetarianism and think more critically of the meat industry, but this book serves as a testament to the ignorance of some of the folks associated with PETA.

Are the recipes simple? Sure. In fact, they're so simple I don't know why anyone would have to write a book about them. They might as well have a "recipe" for water in this book.

WATER
What you need: a cup, water.
Pour the water in the cup and voila!

Of course, even water has more nutritional value than the recipes compiled in this piece of garbage. Almost every recipe requires some kind of vegan meat, cheese, milk or egg substitute. I don't think I've ever seen a decent cookbook call for the use of a microwave either (weird). Not to mention, this thing is full of misinformation regarding the nutritional value of non-vegan foods.

If you're into buying expensive, heavily processed food products with the vegan label, tossing them in the microwave and calling it "healthy" then by all means, buy this book and enjoy. However, if you're a health conscious person who would like to take a stab at a vegetarian or cruelty-free diet, look elsewhere.

Don't take my word for it though. Do your own research and draw your own conclusions.
