First - I love the taste of what I've made! My first night in the kitchen with this book included me making 4 recipes - 2 sauces, some sweet potato fries, and the pad thai burrito. The taste was incredible! Above and beyond good, and amazing enough for me to come write this review.
Second - this book seems to consciously reduce oil and sugar, even more so than the other vegan books I listed above. For example - most vegan French fry recipes include a little bit of oil to coat the potatoes so that the seasonings stick to the fries before you bake them, which does make total sense. What impressed me about this book was absolutely no oil was used in the fries. The inspired alternative in the recipe? A couple tablespoons of aquafaba - which is simply the liquid from a can of chickpeas. The seasoning adhered to the fries beautifully and there was no added oil! This was really impressive to me since it's kind of the next step to healthy eating - reducing oil and sugar.
Third - despite aquafaba being in one of the recipes I mentioned above (which may be new to you if you're new to being vegan), this book does NOT have strange or hard to find ingredients. All of the recipes I have tried and the other recipes I have looked through have basic ingredients found at any grocery store. Yet the wow factor of the taste is there, and it feels like real food, because it is! What is vegan mayo anyway? Don't care, don't need it with this book!
This book has many types of burgers, burritos, and sauces done in creative ways that just work. Pad thai burrito? Not something people have usually heard of, but definitely works in this recipe. It doesn't just work, it's absolutely delicious! The book doesn't include desserts or salads and only has a couple breakfast options and a handful of sides (like the fries). What this book does offer though is delicious and quick meals for any night of the week that are worthy of presenting to friends and family at gatherings. I highly recommend it!
Update 12/27/17 - There are actually 3 or 4 dessert recipes though I haven't tried them. I've still enjoyed every sauce I've made so far! There was one unfortunate recipe I didn't like - a "game time" burrito that used celery seed. I guess I didn't realize how strong that flavor is and I was thinking it would fade into the background, but no, it was very much present and I don't really like celery. So really that's my fault for making something there was a good chance I wouldn't like instead of omitting the ingredient. Still 5 stars all the way, it remains my current go-to book for dinner!
UPDATE: I have recently made several of the recipes....Crabless Cake Burger (page 60), Tartar Sauce Extreme (page 139), Low-Fat Creamy Curry Sauce (page 136), Wrapped-Up Chile Rellenos (page 118), World's Best Roasted Salsa (page 132), Cream Sauce for the Soul (page 159), Skinny Peanut Sauce (page 143), The Ultimate Mexican Churro (page 125). Everything has been delicious and full of flavor! HIGHLY recommend this book!!

But, I did not know that until I bought it. Sadly, I cannot recommend any of these recipes.Read more
