Happy Herbivore Abroad is Lindsay's best yet! First off, it is pleasing enough to the eye to leave out on your coffee table. Second off, it is fun to read and navigate through the beautiful photos and learn about her travels...get to know what she is really all about. As for the recipes and getting down to what matters most....the recipes,so far, are winners! Hands down this book is a keeper, yet another HH book to keep right where I can reach it. I have made the Cuban Black Bean soup; the Tabbouleh; and the Insalata Fantasia-oh and the Cranberry Bread:-) I am being honest when I say they all get 2 thumbs up from me. I can't hardly wait to hit up every recipe is this Abroad book. Just get it! If you are a a vegetarian, a "Meatless Monday" person, a new vegan, a lifetime vegan.....this has it going on! It's great for the collection:) You won't regret it.
Lindsay is the Rachel Ray for vegans! Love her; she has evolved over the years, and this book proves it!
So, I would never discourage one from buying this book, but if you are considering which to get, I hope this review might shed some light. If you are on strict Esslytn heart disease reversal diet, get this one. If you are an average joe easing into a plant based diet, get HH and/or EHH. Or if you don't have a budget, buy all 3!
Why four instead of five stars? Well this book contains 125 recipes as opposed to the 175 each in the previous two releases. And the recipes are mostly good but not exceptional. I will say that if you want a quick, low fat book of recipes, this is great. But if you don't have the first two of her books, those are much more solid recipe books. And many pages in this are dedicated to photos of the places Lindsay traveled to. There are a few recipe repeats, but they don't count towards the 125. And unlike a few other vegan cookbooks which I tore apart in my reviews, this one actually has the bulk dedicated to dishes. (One that I reviewed - not any of Nixon's - had at least half of the recipes for spices, rubs, dressings, condiments, frosting, glazes, and such... At least half!)
There is also a section of 'American' recipes in the back. Not a big deal (and it does state that on the back cover), but with 125 recipes, I would have preferred a few more recipes from other countries. Japan could have been a great source of recipes since they have an active Buddhist culture (vegetarian and vegan) around Kyoto and many restaurants cater to the vegetarian and vegan.Read more ›
I bought Everyday Happy Herbivore a while back, made a couple recipes (which were very good) and then let it to sit for awhile...I started following Lindsey on Facebook and was constantly seeing people post about this dish and that dish that they made from Happy Herbivore Abroad (aka HHA).
I decided to get a sample of the book (Kindle) to see what type of recipes were in there. Normally you don't get an actual recipe in the sample, but in HHA, there were like 4! My husband and I made one of the recipes and were hooked! I downloaded the book the next day and have since been trying as many recipes as possible!
My family is German, and I grew up eating yummy (albeit meat-filled) German food. When I saw the goulash recipe in HHA, I thought, "there's no way..." Goulash is a Hungarian recipe, but many German's make and eat it too. It's not what many American's think of goulash as (over egg noodles), but rather a beef stew of sorts with caraway and marjoram. When I was little, my mom worked as a waitress at a German restaraunt part time, and the owner/chef use to bring me huge bowls of the goulash...I LOVED it. A few years later the place closed and I hadn't had the goulash until a few years ago. When I self taught myself to cook, I knew that I had to figure out the recipe...with quite a bit of trial and error, I finally was able to recreate it. When I went veg, I was sad that I wouldn't be able to have my beloved goulash anymore. I decided to try HHA's recipe. I modified it ever so slightly (I replaced the red wine vinegar with red wine) and used the optional caraway suggestion.Read more ›
