Though I am not a chef or a professional baker, food intolerances and digestive issues led me to spend much time in the kitchen trying out new recipes and inventing my own. I like being adventurous, but once in a while need a base recipe to inspire me, which is how I ended up with this book. I guess I should have done more research prior to buying it, but I got it on a whim along with another book--"gluten-free, vegan comfort foods" sounded promising, just what I craved in that moment (note to self: don't shop for cookbooks while hungry!). Moreover, books that are both GF and vegan friendly aren't that common, so I figured I'd give it a try. I soon realized that it is really a book designed for people just entering into the GF and vegan world. As for myself, I find that there isn't much in it that gets me excited.
There were a few recipes I thought were good: the corn bread is good, the pumpkin pizza crust is interesting, the banana macadamia nut curry is fun and not something I would have thought of on my own, love the lemon lavender flavor combo for the shortbread (anything with lavender is usually good for me), and the chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting are alright.
When I look for a cookbook though, I look for recipes that are different, things I wouldn't have thought of trying out, interesting flavor combinations, things that are generally difficult to adapt to the GF and vegan diet. This book has a lot of useless filler recipes in that sense--like bruschetta, guacamole, and salads which are usually naturally GF and vegan... When did salads become considered a "comfort food" anyhow?Read more ›
Finding a cookbook that covers them all can be even more difficult.
That's why I was happy to get the opportunity to review Gluten-Free Vegan Comfort Food.
My family and I are NOT vegans, but we are eating more and more veggies. So, since two of the dietary needs in our family are gluten free and lactose free.. I had a feeling I could really enjoy cooking out of this book.
It's packed with over 120 yummy recipes that are your basic `comfort food' wants.
* Pumpkin Waffles
* Broccoli-Cheese Soup
* Mac and Cheese
* Lasagna and Meatless Meatballs
* Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Cookies
* And many more!
As I sat down and flipped through the pages to familiarize myself with the book, I quickly realized that this cookbook was going to stretch me as a cook and expand my pantry items. But that's a good thing because I'm always willing to try out new ingredients.
Chia Seeds, coconut milk, and Tempeh are some of the items I have yet to cook with so far, but thanks to Susan's definitions at the beginning, I have an idea of what they are and how they are used in recipes, which was a big help.
I'm going to be honest and say that I don't know if we as a family would ever go vegan, but I was excited to see that all of the recipes in this book were so simple and easy to do, it didn't matter.
I liked how the book was neatly laid out with recipes clear and easy to read. I also enjoyed the beautiful recipe pictures that were included in the center. I'm a visual person, so the more pictures the better.
I decided to try out Susan's recipe for Mock Egg Salad.Read more ›
The author also does a great job of taking the classics and tweaking the flavors just enough to make them interesting, like adding cinnamon to marinara sauce... something I would've never thought to do, but it adds fabulous depth and je ne sais quoi.
