Now, don't get me wrong, there are some hidden gems in this book as well, but that just it: they're hidden! Time and time again I find myself hungry and flipping through this book saying to myself: "nope... nope... nope..." because everything I see isn't a meal, it's just part of a meal. If you filter out the endless array of salads, dips, dressings, toppings, and side dishes you are left with a scant few actual meals. I'm an active (mostly) vegan male, and need hearty and healthy food to keep me running, not salads and side dishes! The idea seems to be that the author is giving you all the building blocks so you can go and create your own meal. All I can say is that's what people who can cook do... and if I could do that I wouldn't need this book in the first place!
I have no idea why Carole Raymond decided to organize the book like this. I don't have time to cook all day and combine 6 recipes into one full meal - that's why I bought this book. The great thing about the Student's Vegetarian Cookbook is that almost every page seems to have a complete meal on it, and the same thing just can't be said about the Vegan version. As a warning, I also find the book to be very heavy on Tempeh and Tofu recipes.Read more ›
Unfortunately, other recipes were not as successful. The pumpkin scones are extremely bland. I had some pumpkin left over so I made another batch this weekend, I tried tweaking things a bit: adding more sweetener, tossing in some cinnamon and nutmeg, but it didn't help. They were still incredibly bland. Pleasant, just not "wow." To the author's credit, these do seem to be intended to be more like a dinner roll to go with chili or soup, she says to eat them hot out of the oven and they are best that way. The coconut tapioca was terrible: bland and flavorless, not worth the effort at all. Likewise, the Spanish tomato soup was almost inedible, with a very strange flavor. It was also not edited well, as the recipe calls for miso and then doesn't tell you when or how to add it to the soup. I put it in at the end.
I'm not a student, but the recipes don't seem that expensive to me. They are much simpler and cheaper than a lot of the vegan cookbooks I have. There are more recipes that intrigue me, I'm trying the vegan baked beans this week. But the recipes do seem very hit and miss in their quality.
