Editorial Reviews

Review

Written in the most engaging way, it's full of recipes that are bound to appeal.
—Canadian Living (Canadian Living)

[So] much more than straight recipes; Garden shows veganism as a fun and exciting way of life—complete with witty, often hilarious recipe intros and heartfelt stories. . .
—Monday Magazine (Monday Magazine)

[Sarah and Tanya] teach the world at least two things: that being a vegan can be loads of fun and that vegan food is to die for.
—VegSource.com (VegSource.com)

[The Garden of Vegan] is packed with fun, fresh and animal-free recipes with names that should tempt anyone, whether veggie or not. With recipes like "Nummy Yummy Waffles," to "Linguine with Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Sauce," to "Dean Dean the Sex Machine's Baked Donuts," the book covers every meal, and even in between.
—sceneandheard.ca (sceneandheard.ca)

The Garden of Vegan has got "hit" written all over it. . .
—The Vancouver Sun (Vancouver Sun)

. . . this vegan's bible is packed with useful information delivered with the same political edge that made the first a hit.
—Vancouver Courier (Vancouver Courier)

Their tatoos, their fashion sense, stolen from grandma's vintage trunk, and their irreverence, say it's not important to be earnest vegans; their recipes have an I-hate-to-cook-but-love-to-eat attitude.
—Vancouver Sun (Vancouver Sun)

. . . Barnard and Kramer give a taste of the vegan life, and show how sweet (and savory) it can be.
—Northwest Palate (Northwest Palate)

The authors' lively writing and tips. . . make this more than a cooking resource.
—E Magazine (E Magazine)

About the Author

Tanya Barnard is a new mom and lives in Kelowna, BC. Sarah Kramer is the author or co-author of four previous bestselling cookbooks, How It All Vegan, The Garden of Vegan, La Dolce Vegan, and Vegan à Go-Go! She lives in Victoria, BC with her husband, where she manages a tattoo shop in addition to creating vegan masterpieces.

More About the Author

Sarah Kramer is a vegan cookbook superstar!

Combining her love of food and her love of animals into a home-made cookbook zine to give to friends and family as x-mas presents. Reaction to the zine was so overwhelming that she realized that she was on to something special and her aspirations to do something with her life that made a difference in the world soon became a reality.

This tiny little zine grew into the best selling cookbook How It All Vegan (which has sold over 150 000+ copies and is often referred to by fans as "The Vegan Bible") only to be followed by it's triumphant sequel The Garden of Vegan and La Dolce Vegan both of which are hot on HIAV heels as best sellers.

Sarah's newest book Vegan A Gogo! hit bookshelves in '08.
Sarah's newest work is a 2010 Calendar that hit shelves in the summer of '09.

HIAV has also been awarded the 2003/2004 Veg News Veggie award for Best Veg Cookbook. Sarah was awarded Veg News Veggie award for favourite cookbook author in 2005 and a M-Award in 2006 for Favourite Book for LDV.

Sarah is known for her sassy vintage style and layman's approach to Veganism, and has been joyfully spreading the Vegan gospel to anyone who will listen. Appearing on national TVg9vlKD4o shows like Canada AM and W-5 as well as local shows like New Day Live, Breakfast Television and Go Magazine, she has also appeared as a guest on numerous radio stations such as CBC and NPR. Sarah also does live cooking appearances at festivals such as Word on The Street, Earth Save events and Vegetarian Conferences throughout Canada and the United States.

A self confessed web junkie, Sarah created a safe haven at her website GoVegan.net for Vegan and curious Vegans to meet and talk about issues. She has written columns for Herbivore Magazine and Veg News as well as running The Tattoo Zoo with her husband/artist Gerry Kramer. When she's not at the tattoo shop, or working on her photography she's in her kitchen working hard on perfecting recipes for her cookbooks.

Herbivore Magazine Sarah was born and bred in Regina, Saskatchewan and hopped on a train in 1988 and headed west for Victoria BC, where she has lived ever since. She enjoys long walks on the beach. She laughs loudly during movies...even when nobody else is laughing. She loves puppies and kittens and is scared to go into the basement by herself. She lives with her husband Gerry and Fergus the Dog, on a nice street somewhere near the beach in Victoria.

Sarah believes that Veganism is not just about food, but is a positive compassionate lifestyle choice. She believes the choices we make, however small (from the food that we eat to the shoes that we choose to buy) have a direct impact on how the world turns. Never one to bash people over the head with an aggressive message, Sarah believes that it only takes one tiny spark to start a fire and she has a pack of matches and is ready to burn!

All in all, if you enjoy cooking vegan/vegetarian and want recipes that are interesting and not too time consuming, this is a great book.

My friends and family LOVE this recipe- they can't even tell the cookies are vegan; they are so rich and delicious.

I pre-ordered this book a while back, and was very happy to finally receive it. In essence, "The Garden of Vegan" picks up where "How it all Vegan" left off. There are lots more fun recipes for appetizers, stir fries, "main entrees" and desserts. Every dish I've tried so far has turned out great; in fact my meat loving husband has enjoyed them all too.
So far I've made:
"Carmelized onion and fennel mashed potatoes" - this was excellent.
"Portobello mushroom bake" - fantastic.
"Coconut spiced vegetables" -a really good stir fry.
"Brownie cookies" - yum.
"Amazing chocolate pudding" - amazing, as the title says.
There's also lots of good tips in the back about how to make different spice combinations, such as Garam Masala, etc. There's also different ideas about how to host fun parties.
All in all, if you enjoy cooking vegan/vegetarian and want recipes that are interesting and not too time consuming, this is a great book.

I am a new vegan and I was having a hard time with the cookbooks that called for all sorts of ingredients I had never heard of with all sorts of difficult recipes. I wasn't good at cooking food before I became vegan, and it seemed like all the vegan cookbooks were for advanced cooks. Not this book. These are all great recipes with easy ingredients and simple directions. I especially love the recipes where they note that they can be frozen and reheated later. I have such a hard time cooking good healthy food while working and going to school, but this book is full of recipes that let you do that especially if you can freeze them and eat them later! Plus, the authors seem to have great laid back personalities. Not too "ooh-la-la" -- very down to earth. These recipes are great for anyone who is looking to eat more healthily. Downside of the book is that there aren't pictures of the food and sometimes I can't quite tell what it is that the recipe is for (like Jessie's Cuban Sensation-- very nice title, but what is it?). This is their second cookbook so I would recommend their first one for more basic stuff and then this one to expand your range of foods to make. They also have great ideas for parties, and a special section for college students trying to be vegan in a dorm.

Format: Paperback
I bought this cookbook hoping it would be as excellent as How It All Vegan, my absolute hands down favorite cookbook. It does have many of the same features as the first book, easy to find ingredients, simple preparation instructions, and of course delicious recipes. However, it also has many more specialized recipes which are of less general interest. For instance, one chapter of the book is devoted to microwave cookery. I realize this may be of interest to some, but for me I see no reason to agonize over how to make muffins in the microwave when I can just pop them in the oven. It is still a great cookbook with many great recipes, but overall fewer interesting new ideas than its predecessor.

Note: The reviewer complaing about a lack of index perhaps has an old edition as mine has an index which is easy to use.

My absolute favorite cookbooks are by Tanya Barnard & Sarah Kramer, authors of "How it All Vegan!" and "The Garden of Vegan." Even if you aren't vegan, nearly every one of the recipes I've tried have been very yummy, pleasing many of my non-vegan friends and family!

New to these books? Try my favorites- I've made each of the following recipes more than 3 times, and they're a hit each time :)

from "How it all Vegan":

'anything goes' fruit muffins, p 49 (great when I have fruit that is about to go bad... just add it to a batch of muffins!)

Perfect Pesto, p. 80

Fragrant Garlic Parsley Pasta p. 106 (gggggggreat!)

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies, p. 137 (I've made this recipe 10+ times. My friends and family LOVE this recipe- they can't even tell the cookies are vegan; they are so rich and delicious. I use a little more than the recommended chocolate chps- I use a little over 1 1/2 cups choc chips. Throw in some cocoa powder for extra flavor (1 tbsp)- and I often add pecans or walnuts!)

Flax Eggs, p.157 (Ok, so this is just an egg-substitute recipe, real simple... but it has been the best egg-replacer I've used in baking- and it's very cheap!)

Out of this whole book, the only recipe that turned out awful for me was Big Ben's Lentil Burgers, p. 110. I don't know what I did, they just falled apart... probably could have used some Flax Eggs....

From "The Garden of Vegan": I haven't tried quite as many recipes in this book, but from what I have... really good!

Sesame Ginger Dressing, p. 99 (awesome!!!)

All-Purpose Spice Nuts, p. 111 (good for parties)

Zoe's Grandma's Roasted New Potatoes, p. 113

Chickpeas & Swiss Chard, p.

I will keep this short and sweet:
If you are vegan and really enjoy cooking (or don't, for that matter), this book is perfect for you. With the exception of a few recipes, all of the ingredients can be easily found in regular grocery stores. The vast array of desserts is enough to make anyone buy the book! :)
I recommend this book to everyone, whether vegan or just looking for yummy, guilt-free food! Preparation is so easy, and experiencing new food - or old food with a new twist - is always fun!
