Bloggers Steen and Newman (Cozy Inside: Delicious & Comforting Cruelty Free Recipes) open with reasons to become vegan—your health, the environment, and your pocketbook—and a list of animal-derived ingredients (e.g., casein, lactose, and whey) useful for new vegans. Icons denote 30-minute, low-fat, gluten-free, and soy-free recipes. A helpful list of “new-to-you” ingredients, like nondairy butter, nutritional yeast, and nut butters, accompanies the simple instructions, which include ingredient measurements in both metric and standard. A good source for the starter vegan. - Library Journal, March 15, 2010
“The collaborative effort of two established bloggers, 500 Vegan Recipes provides curious chefs with an impressive range of recipes, from classic to contemporary. Celine Steen, creator of the popular blog ‘Have Cake Will Travel,’ teams up with seasoned cookbook author, blogger (‘Just the Food’), and colleague Joni Marie Newman to deliver everything from hearty breakfasts to every type of savory entrée imaginable. The quickest of flips through the 500-page guide will have you salivating with tempting titles that turn run-of-the-mill dishes into a memorable affair, such as Pumpkin Tofu Scramble and Peanut Brittle Cookies. Helpful icons indicate gluten- and soy-free dishes, low-fat recipes, and recipes for time-crunched cooks. With a spacious layout and 20 well-organized chapters, 500 is easy to navigate—the difficulty lies in choosing a recipe. … A successful first venture for the duo, it certainly won’t be the last." —VegNews Magazine

What I love about the variety of recipes is that you can find something to apply to all seasons and ages. Learning your vegan basics? Read up on the random animal ingredients that lurk in food and master your Seitan Crumbles. Have kids coming over for Easter? Make some chocolate Easter Eggs. Plus, you have familiar favorites next to super creative recipes that I would have never dared to try myself, but become instant favorites. Like the Chocolate Tahini Bars. If you'd asked me to combine tahini and chocolate, I would have thought you were crazy, but the recipe is so shockingly good! One of my top favorites (so far, it takes time to make a dent in 500 recipes!) are the Quinoa Raisin Muffins for a complete and satisfying breakfast.
This book gives you more than your money's worth plus Celine and Joni are always present on the internet if you have quesitons about the book or the recipes. You could even start a blog yourself- a year and half of cooking from their book every day!
