I really love that there are no added oils in these recipes. From cooking them I've learned I can successfully omit all the oils from other recipes or make substitutions without losing anything but unwanted fat. I learned from this cookbook that ground flax seeds and water make an excellent egg substitute. I even used it to coat and batter tofu fishsticks from a recipe in The Vegan Lunchbox. I love that these recipes use minimal amounts of sweeteners but they're still delicious. I personally think every recipe in the book is top notch and I would eat them, as I've made a lot of them. However I will only cook foods that win in our family by a majority vote. Here are the recipes that are kid tested and family approved. Pecan Ball Subs (pg 150) is the top pick.Read more ›
I cannot state emphatically enough how amazing it is that this book brings to the reader traditional comfort food in an EASY and healthy package. You will find many of your old favorites reborn into healthy dishes. I am amazed at how Ms. Campbell was able to accomplish this with such simplicity of both ingredients and preparation.
This book is beautifully presented. It is professionally designed and laid out with professional color photographs for nearly every dish. I'm not sure what it is that makes it easier to select a recipe if there's a great picture, but the author and publisher were smart enough to realize this and I appreciate that. Everything looks delicious, and the recipes are all so simple and reasonable to make, but at the same time come out so good. Healthy has never been so easy or so tasty.
The book begins with a short introduction that manages to stuff a lot of good information into a small space without rehashing everything else done by all of the other cookbooks for this audience. It gives sound advice for those transitioning to a plant-based diet.
The book is then divided into Breads & Muffins, Breakfast Dishes, Appetizers & Salads, Soups, Sandwiches, Entrees,Side Dishes, and Desserts. Appendices include metric conversions and an index.
New family favorites from this book include Fiesta Corn Bread, Apple Turnovers, Lemon Tahini Quinoa Salad, Sesame Noodle Salad, Tomato Tortilla Soup, Thai Wraps, Asparagus Crepes, Seasoned Mushroom Soup, Macaroni Squash, Moroccan Eggplant. The Coconut Mango Pudding is to die for!
No added oil in the recipes.Read more ›
