I have tried many things from this cookbook and everything has been exceptional. It is a great collection of recipes that will appeal to anyone and is a great go-to for when you are entertaining a mixed crowd but want to keep it vegan. My husband who used to be a big meat eater but is now vegan loves when I cook from this cookbook because it matches the flavor profiles he is used to and always says "it's vegan magic" because it all tastes the same but without the animal products. Highlights for us have been the Buttermilk Blueberry pancakes, the Twice Baked Spaghetti, maple bacon donuts, the taco salad, cheese tortellini, cake batter ice cream, smokey pub cheese and the burger you make with it, seriously....all of it! I love the design of the book and the photography is amazing! There are lots of pictures to show you exactly what you are going to get and just looking through it you will be drooling and planning your menu for the week. Celine and Joni have definitely done it again, this is a definite must have!

Hearty Vegan is a delight for the palate and for the eyes.
This book makes it a pleasure to eat vegan, to enjoy every meal, and to find the perfect menu to prepare for yourself or to entertain your friends.
Together with my husband, we enjoyed the Scalloped Potato Pie, the Eggplant Parmigiana, the Pesto con Gusto Pizza. To entertain, we served the Crispy Pepperoni Bites with rosé wine: they went together so well. The Super-Tender Whole Wheat Bagels, slightly toasted and served with jam, make for a great breakfast. We also loved June's Swedish Dessert Blender Pancakes.
We're looking forward to trying even more from this book!

First of all, I must be clear, this book is NOT a healthy vegan cookbook by any means. What it is however, is a delicious vegan cookbook to satisfy any vegan (or hungry eater in your home)! As with many cookbooks, I had to buy this one just for the name alone, and it did not disappoint. Even my non-vegan family was amazingly satisfied with these meals and asked for more! Prepare to be filled up with such delights as,

Tofuevos Rancheros
Lentil and Bacon Pot O'Stew
The Double Take
Tempehitan Burgers
Ultimate Patty Melt
Barbeque Ribs
Creamy All-In One Bowl
Hearty Breakfast Bowl
Irish Nachos

What's that you say? Looking for dessert or something to satisfy that sweet tooth? look no further, you will be happily delighted once again with desserts/vegan goodies like:

Old-Fashioned Coconut Cake
Vanilla Pudding Cupcakes
Salty Sweet Oat Cookies
Chocolate Pecan Muffins
Apple Pie With Pecan Crust
Sugar Rush Cereal Bars (made with Dandies and Cap'n Crunch Cereal)

and our family favorite: Maple Bacon Doughnuts! OMG!!! Talk about vegan food heaven! I have a ton of vegan cookbooks and the title of this book indicates exactly what to expect and doesn't disappoint. Rest assured those of you who are still not sure whether to buy this or not; do your self a favor and buy it! You will not be disappointed. The authors do say on a variety of "less than healthy" recipes to serve with a green vegetable (my guess is because you won't feel as guilty when you eat the dish). Overall, this is a great book for that occasional vegan meal when you just want to eat some good ole comfort food!

I am sure there are a lot of people that would enjoy this cookbook. It would be great to use as a resource when the carnivores come knocking for dinner, but.... It is just too unhealthy for me. So many of the recipes are fried, use TVP, lots of faux cheeses, butter etc.. I don't mind some junk vegan food now and again but, this is not a nightly go to cookbook for dinner. I did try a couple of things (making some changes to how it was prepared so as to not use as much oil etc) and the flavor was decent. If you like junk food or need to cook for a carnivore then this book may work for you... as for me I enjoy the health aspect of being a vegan and felt that this cookbook would not benefit me.

I'm a cookbook ADDICT. I must have 200 veg*n cookbooks right now and THIS one is my favorite! EVERYTHING I've made has been just to die for. I've been vegetarian for over 30 years. Vegan for about a month now. My husband eats fish, but is vegetarian otherwise. He is hesitant to be "more vegetarian" than he is(n't) now. BUT, with this cookbook- he's been eating vegan and loving it! Last night: the alfredo sauce over whole wheat linguini. Tonight the "beefy" mac followed by the STRAWBERRY CREAM PRETZEL PIE (OMG-seriously!!!!!!!!!). These two chefs are amazing.I'm their new biggest fan for sure. :)

A lot of great recipes! However, MOST of these recipes call for gluten and/or soy-based items: tofu, TVP, Tempeh, Seitan, and the like. Well, many people (me included) are avoiding gluten and soy due to allergies and sensitivities.

For Gluten Free: I'll use GF flour blends, gf breads, etc.

For some of the savory recipes that call for a firm fake meat (like tofu, etc) substitute chopped mushrooms, beans, quinoa (regular grain-like quinoa or quinoa-based prepackaged veggie burgers, or a solid quinoa-based or regular-corn-based polenta), and see how it works out.

For any recipes that call for sour cream, cream cheese, I will use either Wayfare gluten, soy and nut-free items, or use a cashew-based sauce, or use daiya vegan soy-free and gluten-free cheeses (cream cheese,shreds, slices or wedge) for them, instead.

For any recipes that call for yogurts, I will use coconut-milk-based yogurts (there are also almond and rice yogurts, or one could make their own).

So...with those amendments, I think I can still work with many of the yummy-looking meals in this book! :)
