ve·gan ston·er [vee-guhn stoh-ner] — noun: one who satisfies the munchies with resourceful, creative, instinctive cooking without using animal products.
These recipes are designed to make vegan cooking fun, feasible, quick, and on a dime. Each recipe—for a sauce, a stuffing, or a base—is a potential component in your personal munchie menu. Mix and match with confidence. Substitute ingredients and flavors to personalize dishes for you, for two, or for a party. Explore the depths of your creativity.
There will be moments when you will be in doubt. Trust yourself, dig in with your fingers, and grab what feels right. Pay attention to consistency, texture, smell, and, most importantly, your taste buds. In time you will rely less on exact measurements and more on instinct.
Don’t be afraid to go where no one in your kitchen has gone before. Cook for yourself, and know that the only success in cooking is when you have fun.

Top Customer Reviews
The criticism (here on Amazon) is that the recipes are "junky." Meaning, they have lots of processed food. Well, yes, true. But the recipes will produce delicious, easily prepared vegan food that's inexpensive to make. In my book, that makes this book a major win. The artwork is outstanding, too--appealing without being too precious. There used to be a lot of Vegan Starter Guides and cookbooks with these types of recipes, except that the recipes were all terrible (remember when seasoned vegans told you to eat tofurkey sandwiches and canned corn?). These recipes will appeal to your inner stoner, even if, like myself, you have no interest whatsoever in getting stoned.
If you're a longtime vegan who likes to cook and/or consider yourself a foodie: no, this book isn't for you. If you're a vegan whose idea of dinner is sticking a frozen burrito in the microwave: this book is pretty much perfect. However, I am neither of those things, I still found usefulness. Even I, a somewhat experienced cook, sometimes just want to open a few cans, throw stuff in a pan and eat a delicious meal in 15 minutes. And, judge me if you must, sometimes I just don't care if all the food is processed and full of soy or what-not. The art work makes this perfect for your vegan coffeetable.
This adorable cookbook is a winner.
The book is filled with adorable doodles and the simple recipes really just make me feel at ease. I'm not a known cook; I could probably find a way to burn or ruin anything and everything. However, I made my first successful meal the first night with this book. I attempted the stroganoff recipe and well, I was pretty damn proud of myself! It was super easy and I couldn't find some of the ingredients such as seitan, so I opted for tempeh and the results were still delicious! It's super easy to find substitutions.
Don't forget to check out the back of the book as they include directions on how to cook certain grains and beans. They list how to measure out what you need. They even teach you basic things like how to fry things or even how to microwave a potato. Well, this may be basic to some, but to me? Welp, it's probably the most helpful thing around.
I cannot wait to try more in the book because I already know I wont be dissapointed!
