“I love this book! As a vegetarian for over twenty-four years, I know the amazing benefits of a vegan diet for the person and the planet. I love how Alicia shares personal insights and delicious Southern-inspired recipes, making veganism easy and accessible to the masses. From the section on ‘Vegan Myths’ all the way to the decadent vegan desserts that remind me of mother’s cooking, Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food has something for everyone. The world is changing and consciousness is rising. People are searching for a more compassionate way of living, but may not know where to start. Alicia’s book is a must-have and will be a permanent part of my cookbook collection. I highly recommend it to all of my readers!”

I was really disappointed by this book! I read a lot of great reviews, but when I got around to cooking with it myself, I found most of the recipes to be overly simplistic. There are some gems in here, to be sure, but I don't think the author really had enough recipes to justify a whole cookbook, so she started throwing in some real no brainers. There's a recipe for "dinner salad" that just lists 5 or 6 basic salad ingredients (seriously?). "Mini Pizza's" are just english muffins, pizza sauce, fake meat & fake cheese. There are probably 15 recipes like that... super duper basic things that anyone can think up on their own.

Another concern was the use of processed food items. Far too many recipes relied on expensive substitutes like fake meat and cheese. She even calls for specific brands at times, one of which she recommends ordering from the internet. I'm more interested in cooking with ingredients I can easily access for a reasonable price.

If you are JUST STARTING OUT as a vegan and cook, this book might be helpful for you. If you are a seasoned vegan, pass this one by. Veganomicon is far superior!

With some books you have to buy special food items to make anything. This book makes it possible to find the ingredients in your pantry. Very easy!

I've been using this cookbook for the last few weeks and continue to be delighted by the high-quality meals, the easily accessible ingredients, and the simplicity of the instructions. The "Red Beans with Quinoa" and the "Fried Chik'n Seitan" rock my world. Buy this book and you won't be disappointed!

This is the first time I am being serious about going vegan and their are a few things I was worried about: Where am I going to get my protein and calcium from? What is seitan? What can I use to substitute ingredients like egg and butter? I don't need any added stress, how inconvenient is this going to be? This book has a section dedicated to answering these questions and more and has recipes that don't look intimidating or time consuming (vegan tacos, vegan "tuna sandwiches, vegan "meatloaf", even "buffalo wings"!). The book also addresses the issue that you don't have to use meat substitutes all of the time to have a complete meal and there are products that can be used in place of a protein besides tofu. I recommend this book for someone who is a beginner or someone who wants to eat vegan foods without missing out on foods they may be accustomed to.
I tried the quick and easy vegetable casserole recipe on my meat-eating fiancée right after I got the book, using some basic ingredients I already had in my house (except for the couscous that I sub-ed with brown rice), paired it with a side salad and he ate half the casserole (aka he really liked it)! I have a feeling this book is going to be a tremendous aid in becoming a vegan.

I bought the book because it had a lot of positive reviews. Was I confident it was going to rock? eh no... I wanted to make mac n cheese that didn't use dreadful cheese substitutes; and I did. She is my hero! While I think the book is great... I'm particularly in love with the mac n cheese sauce.

I feed this recipe to meat and potato ONLY carnivores all the time and they look at me with their mouth hanging open because they cannot believe, at all; that that sauce is completely animal free.

Some notes about it: So generally for me, the sauce is a "double" batch because I will do the sauce once, and mix half into the noodles and bake, the remainder I put in a container in the fridge. YES YOU HEARD ME.
First traditional mac n cheese from craft to home baked is a "one use only" kind of dish, reheating it makes it taste dreadful because the fat and protein separate in the cheese and often the noodles absorb the water making it grainy tasteless and often greasy. You don't have this problem at all with this Sauce!!! First you can bake a full pan and eat it piping out of the oven the first time, and you can then store it in the fridge and reheat it in the microwave later without destroying the integrity of the sauce at all. (I was able to take it to work for lunches, my daughter her school lunch). But that's not all the magic...

The cheese sauce not ONLY hangs out in the fridge for quite a while (without having to worry about it spoiling in a day or two) but, it's fantastic COLD TOO... We were dipping taco chips in it... and sometimes I will warm it in the microwave and add salsa for a warm queso dip for our nachos! I've also made saucy baked burritos and put the queso in with the beans and then covered it with sauce and poured this cheese sauce over the top.

This was an impulse purchase. I have made about half a dozen recipes from this book. My stew wasn't spectacular but I will blame that more on my unwillingness to leave a crock pot alone. The mac and cheese is brilliant. So much so I have made it twice. I try to not eat too much soy, and the fact that this recipe has no "milks" or cheeses" in it and is still creamy and rich is fabulous.

I will definitely be exploring this book further.

As my son and I are newbie vegans, I have searched high and low for GOOD FOOD recipes. This has been the easiest to use with the most delicious recipes for true comfort food.

Everytime I make something from the book, we both laugh and say, boy, it really is sweet to be vegan.

I use the book almost daily - always with great results :) I have yet to have a flop. Thanks to the author for doing such a terrific job. Whatever she writes, I will look forward to purchasing
