Book Description

Did you know that Fruit Loops, Baked Lay's Potato Chips, and Cracker Jacks are vegan? Going vegan doesn't mean you have to only eat broccoli and tofu. It doesn't mean you have to eat "healthy" all the time. Most importantly, it doesn't mean you have to give up on eating just for fun. Everyone likes to pig out every now and then and vegans crave salt, sugar, and comfort food just like the rest of us. Vegan Junk Food provides 225 delicious recipes like: Barbecue "Chicken" Pizza; Chocolate Raspberry Muffins; Vegan Whoopie Pies; Hawaiian Rum Cake; "Bacon" Wrapped Water Chestnuts; and Jalapeno Poppers. With 2 inserts of full-colour photos, Vegan Junk Food will have readers hungry for more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Riots, not diets! April 5, 2012
Lane Gold's VEGAN JUNK FOOD is my new favorite cookbook. (The previous title holder? Wheeler del Torro's THE VEGAN SCOOP - which should tell you a little sumthin' sumthin'! Namely, that I like my vegan food filled with empty calories.) At my request, I was lucky enough to receive a review copy - along with two copies to give away - from the publisher, Adams Media. With a name like "Vegan Junk Food," I figured it couldn't disappoint.

Whether you like your junk food sweet or savory, chocolaty or cheesy, Lane (can I call you Lane?) has got you covered. The 225 recipes in this collection are divided into ten categories: breakfast foods; deli favorites (i.e., sandwiches, wraps, burgers, and sliders); comfort-meets-takeout foods (entrees); crusts and carbs (pizzas and breads); festive grub (party foods!); dips, hummus, and sauces (including sundae toppings!); savory treats; cakes; candies and cookies; and grab `n' go sweets (brownies and bars). As you can see, the recipes are roughly divided between meal-type items (entrees, main courses) and snacks/desserts.

The husband and I tried out about twenty recipes before I sat down to write this review; and, while I don't usually review cookbooks, this is easily the largest number of recipes I've sampled for a cookbook review, like, ever. (I just couldn't stop myself; everything looks so good!) Possibly it's the most recipes I've made from a single cookbook, period. Though I own a ridiculous number of them, I don't use cookbooks with much frequency; more often I cook from memory or pull recipes off the internet. But VEGAN JUNK FOOD? Most definitely joining my repertoire!

The book's obvious strength, of course, is the food: oodles and oodles of junk food! Pizza. Pasta. Tacos. Pot pies. Casseroles. Cupcakes, pies, and brownies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vegan Food Junk:225 Sinful snacks May 26, 2012
By Ralph
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My wife turned to the "Dark Side" of the force about 13 years ago, and became a "Vegetarian" draging along with her my new born daughter and two years later my son. Me? I am a dirty republican capitalist from Texas... I am a "meatgan"
Even though my kids and wife has never been sick since then, I on the other hand have been (mostly due to bacon!... Man! I love Bacon)
I dont cook, not even rice! All I know to do is boil eggs. So, in my house I have to be fed. That also leaves me as a third world citizen where I don't have a vote in what's cooking or what's for dinner.

Last two years, for suckers's day... I mean father's day, I got one stinking piece of filet mignon barbequed outside (wife refused to cook it inside.) I also notice her feeling a disconfort of nauseas while cooking my dead animal on the grill.

THIS BOOK brought a new perspective into my whole experience of Vegan food. The book has allowed my wife to cook for us (remember I said I dont know how to cook) wonderful strips of some vegetable in the shape AND TASTE of BACON!! It was delicious. Then she cooked several other of the receipes in there, and they were AMAZING. They looked and TASTED like my favorite junkfood, but guess what?? they were healthy and good for me... go figure!

Ever since I got this book, I started checking for glitches in the matrix. I said to myself... "this... looks like bacon, taste like bacon smell like bacon and feels like bacon; but I know it is just a figment of my imagination..." So, I asked my lovely wife to just said to me "Honey I cooked some 'original' bacon for you"... Ahhh Ignorance is Indeed Bliss!!

Highly recommend this product

3.0 out of 5 stars Heavily Processed August 14, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I get that this is a junk food cookbook, so I expect to see a lot of sugar and fat, but must it rely so heavily on processed meat and dairy substitutes?

A small annoyance I have with this book, when there's something called for in the recipe, such as a sauce that is found elsewhere in the book, it doesn't list the page number the recipe is on, which would be much easier than me having to search the index for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this cookbook! May 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love this cookbook! This book has tons of recipes. It is well balanced with some super easy and simple recipes, some moderate, and some elaborate. All the recipes are sinful and wonderfully "junky" while at the same time being loaded with nutrition. Lots of great recipes for my children! So many wonderful ways to bring "cruelty free" to the family table.
