Product Description


EntertainmentRealm.com, 3/14/12 "User-friendly, family friendly positive cookbook with recipes that should appeal to all age ranges and varied palates." InfoDad.com, 3/15/12"A good introduction to vegan food preparation, thanks to introductory material on useful kitchen tools and a section explaining just what various ingredients are." Writing in the Mountains (blog), 3/20/12 "[A] great place to start if you're just getting into veganism. [Burton] breaks everything down into very simple terms in the introduction. There's also a metric conversion chart in the back, great tutorial on cooking beans, a whole section on smoothies and much more." San Francisco Book Review, 4/20 "The pictures are truly mouthwatering. Recommended for the health-conscious home cook." VegNews, May/June 2012"Burton's best-looking book to date...is both family-centric and on-trend...She hits the mark of the current culinary trend of moving away from processed substitutions for meat or dairy ingredients, and toward whole-foods meals that are minimally processed. Of course Burton covers all her courses, with green smoothies and breakfast cookies all the way through braised tempeh with capers and Corn Chowder Quinoa Casserole. But where she really shines is in the sweets...Any family would be lucky to eat the way Burton's does." Midwest Book Review, April 2012"These recipes are varied and designed for any occasion and bring out the full potential of vegan staples. Let them Eat Vegan! is a strong pick for any Vegan cook looking for new dishes and new ideas." Tuscon Citizen, 5/29/12"The author serves up her cooking tips and advice that add a personal touch. This is, in fact, the next best thing to actually having Dreena cooking in your home kitchen beside you...This is a fun collection that will make it easier for us to rediscover the joy of cooking with whole foods and, in the process, perhaps establish a healthier lifestyle." EatDrinkBetter.com, 7/2/12 "A worthy addition to a cookbook shelf. It has a wide selection of simple, yet elegant vegan recipes." Natural Solutions, 7/31/12 "You won't find any processed vegan substitutes, white flour, or artificial sweeteners in this delectable cookbook-just hearty, healthy, delicious vegan food. From the simplest comfort foods to sophisticated main dishes, even non-vegans will enjoy cooking these flavorful and satisfying foods." Midwest Book Review, June 2012 "From Lemon Infused Mediterranean Lentils to Truffled Cashew Cheese, this is packed with dishes which are easy and surprising-and appealing to vegans and non-vegans alike. No vegan collection should be without this appealing presentation of alternative dishes." Portland Oregonian, 8/20/12 "There's just the right mix of difficulty, with enough easy recipes for novice cooks, along with more-involved dishes to challenge more experienced cooks. And for vegan skeptics, there's a whole chapter of crowd-pleasing veggie burger recipes. I can't wait to try them all." One of the Portland Oregonian's Five Favorite Cookbooks from 2012 Worth Putting on Your Christmas List Portland Oregonian, 11/26/12"With [Burton's] latest cookbook, she shows how attractive vegan eating can be for the whole family. As a stay-at-home mom of three children, Burton created recipes that are kid-friendly while offering complex flavors that will please adult palates. It's a difficult balance to strike, but Burton makes it look easy." EvolvingWellness.com, 11/30/12"A valuable resource to add to one's kitchen, whether vegan or not...It includes a variety of all the recipes one would need to satisfy a variety of taste buds, ages and health needs through delicious, whole food meal options." Named one of EntertainmentRealm.com's "12 Favorite Nonfiction Books of 2012" EntertainmentRealm.com, 12/13/12 "[A] user-friendly, family-friendly positive cookbook with recipes that appeal to all age ranges and varied palates."

I've got quite a few vegan recipe books, but this is the first I have bought by Dreena Burton and I have to say, I will probably be buying her others. It's packed full of great looking recipes made with fresh veg, wholegrains, beans, nuts and seeds - not a processed vegan dish in sight - just tasty wholesome food. A lot of the recipes also offer gluten and soy free versions too. The book covers most areas, so there is something for everyone: breakfast, salads, sauces/dips, soups, sides, casseroles, tarts, burgers, pastas, cookies, cakes, pies & puddings and ice cream. There are even a few raw recipes in there for those who want to try a couple (the orange-chocolate pudding is amazing!)

Another thing I like about the book are her notes alongside the recipes to help you along in the kitchen offering little bits of advice with preparation of ingredients or recommending dishes to go alongside. Dreena also takes the time to point out which dishes are more child friendly, or how to amend recipes so that they are more appealing to younger kids.

There were a couple of potential downsides to the book (hey - nobody's perfect!): For those of you who like photos of the finished dish beside your recipes, you may be a little disappointed, as although there are a few pictures in the centre of the book, most of the recipes don't show the final product.
A lot of the recipes also require a well stocked herb/spice cupboard, so if yours is a little bare, be prepared to splash out on a few chosen ingredients...although in my opinion it will be money well spent!
All in all, this is rapidly becoming one of my favourite go-to recipe books. I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
Set out in a nice, reader friendly style with cheery pink title boxes and easy to follow methods, this book is just waiting to be picked up and read. You'll notice straight away that the author is very generous with ingredients and it's not uncommon to see over a dozen items listed in a recipe. This of course does mean though that whatever you make its certainly going to pack a punch in the flavour department. The book also shares with you plenty of theoretical cookery knowledge as well as store cupboard essentials for you to stock up on. Definitely worth a read.

Recipes are simple and can be made around family life. Once you try them you can adapt them to what's in your kitchen very easily. Some recipes lend themselves to being made with leftovers or can be made in stages throughout the day (ideal for parents with preschool kids!).

She offers notes on each recipe on how to make it more child friendly or suggestions if you want to swap ingredients.

We can both cook but just needed some refreshing ideas. I like this book as it has a raw food edge to some recipes, something which I was looking into but don't have time to commit to entirely. Since buying it we are definitely eating more healthy.

I gave it 4 and not 5 stars because many recipes rely on the same base ingredients, like fresh basil and mustard. It'd be better to have more of a variety as we can't get hold of fresh herbs that easily, and with living in a dark terraced house and not having a garden, we are unlikely to be using them. But with her suggestions and a bit of intelligence you can still make the ideas work.

I purchased this book in May and have done so many of the recipes, they are simple without being boring and are so tasty for the whole family. The author is a mother of 3 kids so all her recipes have tips for how to make them kid friendly as well as many of them having nut and gluten free substitutions should that be of concern to you. I love that this is a vegan cook book that does not depend on tofu and chilli as if that is the only way for vegans to eat! Most nights of the week I turn to a Dreena recipe to feed my family, so many of them have become such firm favourites. On reading some of the recipes you might be fooled by what can look like quite long ingredient lists, but once you've read through you realise it's just the authors fantastic ability to combine herbs and spices to lift the flavour of the simplest ingredients. Most of her recipes use store cupboard ingredients so can be pulled together with ease. Although the book is written by a Canadian I have not had any problem finding any of the ingredients in the UK. I own about 15 vegan cook books and this is by far my favourite. I would highly recommend this to anyone whether a new vegan, long term vegan or just wishing to incorporate some healthier meals into their diet.

Format: Paperback
Dreena Burton is a genius at putting flavours together. The ingredient list are usually quite long &, at first, I found this off putting & was reluctant to try some recipes. However this is what creates the taste sensations. Everything I have made has actually been very easy to make. Particular favourites include; Thai Chickpea Almond Curry, Fragrant kidney Bean & Lentil Dhal, Tempeh Tickle, Festive Chickpea Tart, Yellow Sweet potato & chickpea pie with basil & White bean mashed potatoes. The book is worth buying just for those recipes. They are totally delicious. She offers lots of useful tips & substitutions that you can make too which are very helpful. A great book & a great author.
