I am a vegan, but I struggle with my weight. Just because vegans do not eat dairy or meat does not mean that they should consume large amounts of fat in the forms of oil or buttery substitutes. When I read through these recipes I can immediately see easy ways to cut the calories and fat in most of them without cutting flavor. I am just not sure why the sisters were not more conscious of the high fat and salt in the recipes. Also, the book is too small in size. It was hard to keep open on the counter and I kept having to pick it up and look at the ingredients and directions as the print is small. In conclusion, it is a creative, vibrant vegan cookbook, just be prepared to modify recipes to lower fat, cholesterol, and sodium if you are health conscious. I much prefer Kris Carr's recipes or Trader Joe's Skinny Dish Cookbook to this one.
This may very well be the case here. (Although for at least one of the recipes, I have heard from others who had the same sad outcome)
I made 3 items, Cornmeal and Herb-Crusted Tofu Feta Croquettes, Potato Gnocchi with Basil in a Rosted Shallot Cream Sauce, and Quinoa Salad with Fennel and White Beans in a Light Lemon Vinaigrette. Of the 3, only the Quinoa salad was good. The Croquettes were barely eatable and the Gnocchi a total flop. (The Gnocchi is the one that other bloggers and cooks agreed was a failure)
On the plus side, the pictures are lovely, the book itself written in a cute and heartfelt style.
All the same, it's not likely I'll be spending any more time and resources on this one.
The birthday cake had a very weird texture to it, not cake-like at all, although the taste was good. I tried on 2 separate occasions to make the cookies, and both times they failed miserably. When baking them in the oven, they spread apart into a gooey mess. Same result both times, and I've used my oven to make countless other baked goods without fail, so I know it's not the oven.
That being said, the Pumpkin Cheesecake turned out awesome, and tasted awesome. Even won over a tried and true meat eater. I also have made the Fettuccine Alfredo, which is super delish. The Caesar dressing is phenomenal - tastes like the most authentic Caesar dressing ever (better than my Mom's, who follows the Joy of Cooking's recipe for Caesar). Also made the Strawberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast, which tasted really great but was a bit messy.
I love the layout of the book, pics for almost every recipe, and the little blips of information are very entertaining.
