September 19 - I'm back to give an update to my review! I've had a chance to test out some of the recipes in the back of the book, and I must say, I'm impressed with how easy, delicious, and family-friendly they are! While I"m fully on the plantbased wagon, so to speak, my family still needs a bit of coaxing to hop on, and stay on, which is where these yummy recipes come in handy! The Pumpkin Muffins are a delight, the Pancakes Pronto have become a favorite Saturday morning staple, and the Speedy Burritos have even achieved my "plant-picky" husband's seal of approval. Oh, and Lani, your Sweet Bean Cream is nothing short of genius! Getting my family to eat beans -- such an important part of a WFPB diet -- has been somewhat of a challenge, so I try to add them "on the sly" wherever I can. But I never would have dreamed of turning them into a sweet, luscious, frosting-like cream! I'm also loving the various dressings and sauces to add a new twist to my staple salads and grain/bean dishes. I also love the helpful plant-based replacement list and metric conversion chart in the appendix. So, although this book is so much more than a cookbook, it's worth the purchase for the recipes and recipe templates alone!
In Muelrath's book, the top areas of particular value to me were (in no particular order):
1) plant based replacements for dairy, eggs and oil (gave specifics; really nice reference table)
2) other people's stories and tips for how they made the transition (again specifics; different ways to transition - really liked)
3) restaurant tips for how to put a meal together if not specific vegan
4) 7-day menu and meal planning (this is big area of re-learning for me - how to put together meals and plan ahead)
The book includes some very simple but delicious recipes, like the Sweet Bean Cream (pictured). Perfect as an oatmeal topping, and an easy way to get more beans into your diet!
As a frequent traveller and a vegan, I particularly enjoyed her insights into plant-based travel and how to take this lifestyle on the road, even in remote locations. You can read my full review of the book and my interview with Lani at (...)
