This book was exactly what I needed!
I am not yet a Vegan - and I was hesitant to become one. Besides the fact that I will miss my favorite foods: cheese, ice cream, milkshakes...I also had reservations about the diet itself. I have seen a quite few Vegans who were malnourished-looking. Without meat or dairy, I thought, of course they are malnourished!

But of course I was wrong. For one thing Sister Afya is herself a Vegan - and she is certainly not malnourished (looking or otherwise). For another, there are plenty of sources of calcium and protein without having to resort to animal flesh and secretions. <- Gross, that statement alone will make me become a Vegan!

But, actually, her book is not condescending at all to us meat eaters. She advises people not to try to stop Cold Turkey. But to gradually cut things out of our diet.

She spends a lot of time, educating readers on the correct way to be a Vegan - what foods to avoid and what to make sure you include in every meal (60+ pages!)

But this does not at all mean that she skimps on the recipes. She has lots of recipes in here (including *2* brownie recipes) yum!

Here is the breakdown:

Breakfast recipes: 8
Soups: 4
Salads: 6
(I know what you are thinking: of course salads are vegan - why do I need a recipe for them? - well, she has some great ideas for new salads to try)
Main Dishes: 10
Sides: 19
Breads: 7
Desserts: 8
Beverages: 6
Sauces and Dips: 3

As you can see, she generous with the recipes!

But that is not all! After all the recipes, she STILL includes more info like meal planning, substitution basics AND a DVD on cooking with TOFU.

This book is WELL worth every penny I spent on it! I can't wait till she writes more books. I will be the first in line to purchase them!

I purchased the book in brooklyn for my wife, who follows the authors works. My wife and I also attended a book signing that same day, and i have to say. I am a huge meat eater, but if veggies and other non meat meals were prepared as flavorfull and zesty as the greens that were made live by the author, i'd be more than pleased to immediately transform my eating habits. The author also gave detailed health tips and infoon where to get any and all ingredients to prepare all of the meals in the book. And as an added bonus, a dvd is included. This book is a guide to a vegan lifestyle you can beleive in. its not just the average tofu book, but truly a blend of culture and healthy consciousness created to educate and satisfy your craving for culinary delights. It will definately help switch from savage eater to health wise human.

Chicken fried tofu! Gracious, I've been eating tofu for decades but never thought about doing some of the things with tofu that this author proposes. She emphasizes a basic necessity of preparing tofu: Always marinate it before cooking!!!

I recently purchased this book after learning about it from her husband a noted musician on a radio program he hosts where he had her on. I will say from the outset, I love the book title!!! Ok, so I bought this and several other vegan books to add to my library. Having been pesco-tarian for 11 years I am familiar with ALL of what she talked about and also having grown up going to/eating at Soul Vegetarian Restaurants in Atlanta, DC, and Chicago her recipes are reminiscent of those meals. Given that, I appreciate her book even more because of the simplicity she provides. It's one thing to have a book of interesting/exciting recipes devoid of colored pictures, nutritional facts, etc and assume "they will come." This author created an ideal package comprised of very useful how to's of vegan life, COLORFUL food pictures, and easy recipes that include easily obtainable ingredients. I like too that she explains if something is soyfree or wheat gluten free or how it could be through the inclusion or exclusion of often one particular item. Honestly, the pictures are what got me as well as the pages to find the very recipe I was looking for! So simple...its divine! What I also appreciate is that she does NOT include sugar in her recipes. Instead you will see agave, maple syrup, or sucanat listed. I can't tell you how many times vegan books use sugar; that is so absurd to me knowing the damaging effects it has on the body whether brown or sugar cane. I do agree that many of the recipes are a slight bit carb focused, but if a cook is being conscious with the intake of foods any of these can easily be supplemented with one if not several other plant based items within one's meal. My only con is that I wish there were more recipes but that could be getting recipe greedy.Read more ›

VSG is such a great resource for anyone, but even better for vegans. With sample menus, how to cook grains and beans, finger licking recipes, sample shopping list, info on health and wellness and the politics behind our food, this concise book is not short on knowledge. The recipes are so good that you can wow all the vegans, vegetarians, or meat eaters in your life for little cash or time spent.
