Format: Paperback
The Wild Vegan Cookbook provides a fine culinary guide to locating wild vegan foods in either field or market, and to preparing them. It teaches how to use sustainable methods to harvest wild plants all around us - and how to locate and purchase underused natural foods in markets. Vegan author Steve Brill explains how nearly 150 wild American plants create tasty dishes - and provides over 500 recipes arranged by season. No vegan collection should be without this!

Format: Paperback
If you've ever harvested wild plants or mushrooms and then wondered what to do with them, NYC forager Steve Brill`s new wild food cookbook is for you. Designed to find ways to slip free, nutritious wild foods into a conventional yet wholesome home-cooked vegetarian diet, Brill's done the hard work of matching the sometimes unusual flavors in wild foods to the conventional cuisines that are best enhanced by them, and his combinations are creative and delicious. For instance, Brill suggests that the bitterness in late fall dandelion greens fits well in a curry stir-fry and that the lemony astringent kick in yellow dock makes a nice accent to quinoa. From acorns to day lilies to oyster mushrooms, he's got it all in this 528-page paperback Bible of wild cooking.

hile it's built entirely around wild food, the full title is "The Wild Vegan Cookbook: A Forager's Culinary Guide (in the Field or in the Supermarket) to Preparing and Savoring Wild (and Not So Wild) Natural Foods," which hints at the fact that the recipes very often require a trip to the store to buy special ingredients like lecithin (an emulsifier) and exotic spices. Also, you should know that almost everything is designed to be prepared from scratch, down to the sauces. This is great stuff if you happen to be a culinary whiz who likes to take your time, but if you're like me -- super simple in your cooking, the sort who only makes things that take under 15 minutes to prepare and spends as little money as possible -- then many of the recipes can seem intimidating. (If you're ambitious, you'll like that he does include a helpful overview of basic cooking techniques in the introduction). The good news is that all of Brill's ideas can be modified into easier, quicker, more accessible versions of themselves.

Steve Brill the modern champion of bringing the healthy practice of foraging back into our lives, wrote a great recipe book for Vegans using foraged greens roots and more.

Everything else aside, it is simply a fabulous book with exceptional layout. As the title says it is for Vegans and it would be heavenly recipes for any foraging Vegan.

I am not a Vegan, but I find the book extremely helpful to derive my own less complex recipes with wild foraged foods derived from his recipes.

It is simply a great book with more recipes than most people can count up to.

Wasn't what I was expecting. No pictures, don't like that in a cookbook. You will also need a field guide to native plants as without pictures you won't know what you're gathering to cook!
