Format: Paperback
As soon as I heard the title, The 30 Minute Vegan, I fell in love with this book. As with any great page-turner, I settled into a comfy chair and read through it from cover to cover. Every recipe beckoned to me, and just reading through the ingredients, I knew that these were going to be some very impressive dishes. Discovering a book filled with 175 mouth-watering recipes that could be made in 30 minutes or less was like a dream come true. If I could prepare great-tasting, satisfying, hearty vegan meals in much less time than I was accustomed to spending in the kitchen, then The 30 Minute Vegan would be a godsend.

But where to begin? Because I happened to have some nice, juicy ripe mangos on hand, I started with the Live Mango Gazpacho Soup. While most gourmet raw food dishes are time consuming (all that soaking, chopping, dehydrating, etc.), and high in fat from nuts, seeds, and avocado, this delightful little soup turned out to be a wonderful surprise! It's actually simple to prepare and made for a sensational low-fat summertime dish. As I have a garden full of mint, I substituted it for the cilantro called for in the recipe, and it blended quite nicely with the lime juice and mangoes. That's one of the things I love about The 30 Minute Vegan: Unlike most other cookbooks, the way the recipes are presented, you are actually encouraged and inspired to add your own culinary creativity. I love that feeling of freedom. I wasn't afraid to experiment on the first go-round with any recipe. The authors made me feel like I couldn't mess it up.

The Monk Bowl's, "Zen simplicity," as it is described in the book, is also co-author Mark Reinfeld's favorite meal to prepare. So I couldn't resist trying such an enlightened and inspired recipe.

The 30-Minute Vegan showed up at my local bookstore and I immediately bought it and tried a recipe from it that evening--we were not disappointed! (I also own Vegan Fusion--another wonderful cookbook by Mark Reinfeld.) My first recipe, The Seitan Curry Bowl was wonderful and full of fragrant spices and veggies that combined to make a superb meal. The Vegan Ranch Dressing will not disappoint as it is creamy and flavorful enough to be a stand-in for any non-vegan ranch recipe. Also delightful and yummy--the Mushroom-Onion Gravy. This is our new go-to gravy recipe! Other recipes we've tried and loved: Tuna-Free Tempeh Salad--wow--what a great flavor and texture this recipe offers; Fajitas Bonitas--terrific! Living up to its title, these creative vegan dishes can really be made in 30 minutes--and are all delicious. The authors also offer serving suggestions (to round out the meals) as well as variations in making the recipes offering alternatives for ingredients and such. As you explore the cookbook, there are unique and tasty raw dishes to try as well--for instance: Live Macadamia Nut-Ricotta Veggie Towers--yum! I can say with confidence that I have this cookbook nearest to me most evenings when I feel I need a quick vegan meal that offer both flavor and speed. I highly recommend this amazing vegan cookbook!

So many vegan cookbooks spend the majority of their recipes trying to recreate non-vegan foods by using various soy products and faux meat and cheese alternatives, but not The 30 Minute Vegan. Honestly, this cookbook was breath of fresh air.

First, it is packed with recipes. But second, there doesn't seem to be a specific agenda beyond good vegan food. Yes, there are some recipes that use dairy or meat alternatives and yes, there are some recipes that are variations of "old favorites," but there are also countless recipes that pair delicious seasonings with fresh produce, and even numerous unintimidating raw recipes. In other words, there really is something for everyone in this cookbook ... and the recipes really do take less than 30 minutes! At first pass, I encountered so many recipes that captured my attention that my copy was already riddled with dog-ears within 24 hours of receiving it.

I started with the Seasoned Spuds. Rather than roasting, these taters are steamed and then bathed in a unique mixture of seasonings and a little bit of oil just before serving. This different technique intrigued me, especially since you could actually use high quality oil without fear of its smoke point or breaking it down. I was amazed by the delicious smoky taste that did make them seem somewhat roasted. Plus, this dish, along with the rest of our lunch, came together in no time.

For my second recipe, I made the Chocolate Sesame Bonbons. These babies could be in The 5 Minute Vegan cookbook (if it existed of course)! I wasn't sure how they would turn out, so packed full of seeds and with so little sweetener, but they were positively delicious. The sesame seeds gave these little snacks a delightful rice crispy-like crunch.

I was looking for a book to help me get vegan dinners together quickly. This book leans towards raw food, and most of the recipes are for smoothies and salads. Some of the dinner recipes require other recipes and so there is no way you could make an actual meal in 30 minutes. If you are looking for snacks, light lunches, desserts or more involved raw meals, this book may be good for you. I collect vegan cookbooks, but the 30 Minute Vegan will not be part of my collection.
