Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In her newest effort, Hassan (125 Best Cupcakes) offers a cookbook that will be a boon to vegan cooks who crave diner-style food like crispy banana-cinnamon waffles, beer-battered onion rings, sloppy joes, pot roast, and pineapple coconut cream pie. Desserts and baked goods rely heavily on soy or almond milk, vegan margarine, and flaxseed meal. Main "meat" dishes like smoky seitan roast (which can be sliced and used to make sandwiches) depend upon more hardcore vegan ingredients like vital wheat gluten, nutritional yeast flakes, chickpea flour, and TVP (textured vegetable protein). One of the more intriguing recipes is for Barbecued Ribz, essentially a dough that is baked in the oven, scored into strips, slathered in homemade barbecue sauce, and grilled. Hassan includes a glossary of vegan ingredients in the front, a list of online resources in the back, and lots of food photos and diner images (salt and pepper shakers, booths, barstools) throughout. This is a book for the committed and adventurous vegan cook; it's inspiring and fun. (May)

VEGAN DINER
is one of those cookbooks that inspires you to cook. The recipes are accessible and mouth-watering, and will definitely bring out the foodie in those who read it. It brings vegan cuisine to a whole new level!

Dynise Balcavage, author of The Urban Vegan
Nothing could be finer than eating at Julie's diner! Her animal-free, diner-inspired dishes elevate diner chow from trashy to classy, and the recipes are so easy that you'll make them again and again. Only thing that's missing is a big-haired waitress who calls you 'Hon.’
 
Nava Atlas, author of Vegan Express
From hearty breakfasts to swoon-worthy desserts, VEGAN DINER proves that even the coziest of comfort foods can be re-created in fantastic plant-based versions. So enjoy a classic Blue Plate Special or Barbecued Ribz, washed down with a malted and topped off with a banana pudding pie. These fun, guilt-free retro recipes are as good for you as they are kind to the planet. 
 
Mark Reinfeld, co-author of The 30-Minute Vegan
Incredible decadence and down-home vegan goodness! Julie has created a masterpiece of healthy comfort food.
 
Celine Steen, co-author of 500 Vegan Recipes
Follow the foolproof directions in Julie's snazzy and impeccable latest work that includes creative and mouthwatering dishes, such as My Big Fat Greek Scramble and Vampire Fries, and turn your kitchen into the only diner of the neighborhood that is sure to leave no taste bud unsatisfied, while keeping all animals safe and happy.

I am absolutely loving "Vegan Diner," not only is this cookbook full of beautiful and enticing photos but its filled with great recipes too! i like how there isn't a million recipes in this book but rather what looks like tried and true favorites of the author (who seems like such a sweet and awesome person)! What I've made so far includes:

BREAKFAST:
Spelt Chai Pancakes - These pancakes were so yummy! They were perfectly spiced, light, and fluffy, just what a pancake should be! The recipe as is was great for two people as it made only 4 average sized pancakes rather than the stated 7, make a double batch if there's more people eating!
My Big Fat Greek Scramble - YUM! Exactly what I would expect if I was ordering this at a diner! I loved everything about this delicious scramble all of the herbs and spices and the wonderful olives.
Blueberry Loaf Cake with Lemon Glaze - This was great. It makes a moist and fluffy not to sweet cake, I skipped out on the glaze and subbed half the ap flour with ww and it was just fine.
Breakfast Potatoes with Peppers and Onions - Your basic home fries that are comforting for a nice weekend breakfast!
Creamy Sage Gravy - Hell yes! This is an excellent basic white gravy that is delicious! I used it to make the Breakfast Potato and Sausage skillet and it was heaven! I cut back on the pepper significantly though and am glad i did cuz 1 tsp seems excessive to me.
Herbed Breakfast Sausage Patties - So easy and so tasty! I knew these would be great as I've made her Italian Sausages many times before and loved them! I think I would add a bit more salt because sausages are salty in my mind but altogether these are awesome and so easy to prepare!
Crispy Banana-Cinnamon Waffles - Exactly what the title says, so yummy!

I ordered and received this cookbook recently. My first impression is that the cover picture and other pictures in the book are beautiful. This book also has a good quality. Great publisher!

Now, I believe this is the first vegan cookbook by Julie Hasson. Good for you Julie! I tried several recipes already and everything I tried was delicious. Here are the list I tried:

THE BLUE PLATE SPECIAL (under Main Courses, pg 107) - With a name of a dish like that who doesn't want to try it? I know you have to make 3 things to make a blue plate special: Savory Cornbread Waffle, Smoky Potato Scramble, and Creamy Sage and Pepper Gravy but they are all delicious by itself and combined together. I actually made them on a Sunday night and pack them for lunch the next day. I gave my husband an instruction how to eat them: crispy waffle on the bottom, top with scramble and gravy. My husband called me from work after consuming this lunch and said that it was the best lunch that he had lately. We had the leftover for dinner, too! Yummy!

BREAKFAST BENEDICTS FLORENTINE (under Breakfast, pg. 48) - we had breakfast food for dinner or lunch. It was great and all the same. I didn't really make my own English Muffin or the veg sausage, shame on me (I used gimme lean, but the I made the Hollandaise sauce from this book. It is a wonderful meal!

CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT SWIRL BREAD (under Breads, pg. 57) - Now, this is a WINNER. Hazelnuts, chocolate, and cinnamon? Boy, the combinations will make your mouth water. It turned out to be a huge bread (pictured) and I gave half to my neighbor (now they owe me for the rest of their life) and they loved it. I just microwave for 30 seconds when eating the leftover bread and the chocolate will melt in the bread and in my mouth.

This is one of the most beautiful cookbooks I have ever seen. Even the copyright page is adoreable. Beyond the beauty of the book is the deliciousness of the food. The "big fat greek scramble" takes tofu scrambles to a whole new level, and the "old fashioned rice pudding" reminds me of being a kid again. Oh, did I mention the pies? Just imagine, anything you would want to order from a greasy spoon, now buy this book and make the cruelty free version of it in your own kitchen.

This is a beautiful book with lots of photos to show what the food will look like. It has many dishes that will be our everyday favorites.
The Sweet Cornbread is very easy and delicious.
The Blueberry Loaf Cake with Lemon Glaze was heavenly.
The Chocolate Cherry Cake had my husband raving in delight.
The Quick and Hearty Chili is my new go-to chili recipe.
The Great Smoky Mountain Cheeze was delicious and easy.
The Brown Rice Hazelnut Burgers are my new favorite veggie burgers.
I tried to make the Orange Cornbread Waffles but discovered that my waffle iron was not heating up after I had mixed up the batter; no problem, I turned the batter into some yummy pancakes, and liked them so much I will make them that way again.

I have had this book for only a week and plan to try many more recipes.
The only unusual ingredients are agar, vital wheat gluten, non-dairy milks, nutritional yeast flakes, tofu, and some flours. Thse are not unusual in my own kitchen, but people new to vegan cooking might be unfamiliar with them. She has a section in the front explaing ingredients.
