My favorite recipes in this book: blueberry waffles with lemon icing; stuffed banana berry french toast; aloo matar; caramelized leek and spaghetti squash polenta with white sauce; dal makhni; delicata squash stuffed with cherry-almond couscous; chana samosas; sesame ginger seitan dumplings; crispy sesame kale; black bean soup; spicy tomato chickpea soup; baked mac and cheeze; hurry up alfredo; lime peanut noodles with seitan, kale, and carrots; pad see ew; blueberry grunts; and sheera. As you can see, I had quite a lot of favorites!
One of the things I really appreciate about this book is the variety of recipes and ingredients. Ulm has a CSA, and says that a lot of her recipes were created based on what she got from it on a given week. I have one too, so I'm able to enjoy her recipes that involve lots of seasonal vegetables, farm-exclusive delights like delicata squash, and the experience of having so many leftover veggies and clippings that vegetable stock is the best use of resources. Then there are plenty of recipes with more basic ingredients, that can be found at any grocery store, even in my small college town. The more hard-to-get ingredients I can find a little ways out of my way at natural food stores.Read more ›
I could just make the recipes as written and end up with something truly delicious.
In fact, at times, I could mess up the recipes (Grilled pear, walnut and cabbage salad AND brocoli dahl come to mind) and still end up with something truly delicious.
My second vegan cookbook taught me what a privilege that is. With that second book, I have to taste and re-season every component of every dish. I think if I had bought that second book first, I would have decided that vegan cooking was either too bland or way too hot or just too much work.
What a pleasure it is to be able to trust VeganYumYum. What an abomination it is that the other cookbook has the same score on Amazon...over binding issues? It makes me sad because that cookbook could turn off future vegans, instead of arming them to grow as cooks.
Which brings me to my second point, I learned skills that allowed me to be a home cook, like how to dry-fry/pan-fry tofu. I learned to make a roux. I get how to use nutritional yeast for yummy goodness.
I don't buy cookbooks to read through extensive culinary analysis of food cultures. In fact, I honestly rarely have time to read anything more than the recipe (ah, third vegan cookbook, how you tricked me into reading about the cultural history of empanadas with your long, long recipe-like intros).
So, I appreciate Ulm separating "side bar" issues from recipe information. Again, as a young cook, I need that simplicity. It helps me focus on what I need to get done.
I didn't even realize Ulm's informal tone in her sidebars until I read another Amazon review. I think the informal tone likely arises because Laura is a cook, not a chef.Read more ›
"Millenium" Vegetarian restaurant in San Francisco...the focus of which is tofu or seitan, rather than focusing on inventive ways to create meals without tofu or seitan. Just voicing my personal preferences.
