What I like:
Pictures for EVERY recipe, all looking extremely delicious.
Directions limited to a few paragraphs.
Ingredient lists are fairly short.
No hard to find ingredients.
Little/no fake meat or cheese -- there are no entries for seitan/tempeh in the index.
No attempted brainwashing, political commentary, suggested meal plans, or any other fluff -- just 100% recipes (and photos).
"Easy Vegan" is a cute little book full of creative, and innovative recipes, that will have your mouth watering. Some of the ingredients may be hard to find for anyone living outside of a major urban area or someone without access to ethnic markets but there are enough recipes using familiar ingredients to keep anyone happy. Also something to keep in mind is that many of the recipes were written by Europeans so several ingredients are written in their french - or other - name. Such as Aubergine - which is eggplant, or Courgettes - which is zucchini. This may upon first glace be confusing the average American but once you familiarize yourself with these words the rest is a breeze. Measurements are also noted in metric as well as imperial. Though no nutritional information is given for any of the recipes - a turn off for some - many, if not most are quite healthful.
One thing I love about this book is that the recipes rely on whole plant foods. There is no tempeh or seitan - which I love but that's besides the point - no vegan meat, or vegan cheese either, and very little use of tofu.Read more ›
Do these sound like easy to find things to you? Kaffir lime leaves, preserved vine leaves, gow gee, mangetouts, daikon, or Harissa paste?
These are probably great recipes but the title is very misleading. I am trying to learn to eat in a new way and this book is very discouraging.
My recommendation for this book would be to a serious foodie with lots of time and gasoline to travel all over looking for ingredients. If you are looking for easy, you won't find it here. The title should really be changed!
If I find a better book I will report back.
If you like a touch of gourmet, lots of fresh, but don't want all the expensive fake meat- and dairy-like ingredients, this is YOUR book. Also, the pictures are gorgeous and realistic PLUS I have learned SO MUCH about cooking, like dunking veggies in ice water for X number of minutes. Being a Southern cook, I appreciate the aesthetics of this author and hope he does a follow-up.
I cannot imagine thinking this book is for the gourmet chef only. I rarely spend more than an hour on one of these delectable dishes. Only the Persian rice dish has been a major pain as far as labor intensive, but OH, was it good!!!! Definitely for a special occasion, but isn't that what food is about?
I know I'm gushing, but it really does rate, and I have had at different times a slew of cookbooks. Take 'em all and give me this one.
The recipes are filling and tasty enough that you could make them for anyone and turn people on to simple, vegan cooking.
