Changed Our Lives!
on March 29, 2012
We're fairly new vegans, just over a year and creative cooks at that, but there came a time when we weren't so creative, so to the internet I went in search. At a fellow vegan's blog I came across this recommendation, and soooo happy I did.
It has changed our lives in an amazing way. I was a little nervous as a lot of the vegan recipes I got off the internet lacked in taste and my husband and I really like bold flavours. This cook book delivered in every single recipe. We've had it for over a month now and we use it every single day.
From childhood flavours such as Mac and Cheese, to Asian, to Mexican, Morrocan to Indian dishes bursting with flavour! I love her little notes that she adds before each recipe suggesting substitutions or a sauce that would go well with a dish. Any taste you're craving is between these two covers.
This is a women who has the professional expertise and years of experience to know what she is doing and how to combine flavours, spices and ingrediants to come up with a taste. You can rely on her to come up with something you'll love every time. And none of them are difficult to follow. The recipes are not confusing or full of exotic ingrediants. I find I can get almost everything here (I'm a Canadian living in Taiwan) with exception of vegan margine which I substitute with coconut butter nor do we have vegan cream cheese though I found a recipe on the internet (I'm actually pretty suprised she didn't have her own recipe for that one).
I highly recommend this cook book to anyone looking to enjoy flavourful meals every single time while doing your part by reducing your carbon footprint, putting your health first and teaching those around you that a healthy, kind life is daaaaaamn tasty.
