A couple of promising recipes the rest, not so good
on 13 September 2013
I like Lindsay Nixon alot, I read her blog (which is fantastic)and I have her first book "Happy Herbivore", it was the first recipe book I bought after becoming Vegan. I was really looking forward to getting this book as I had enjoyed Happy Herbivore and I use it a lot. In this book there are some recipes that look good and I can't wait to try such as the Lentil Taco Meat and the Cuban Black Bean Soup. The bad side of the book is that some of the recipes are so simple that they shouldn't be in a cook book. It's so annoying, I bought this book with hard earned money and one of the recipes is Tostada con Tomate, that's just toasted bread with tomatoes on or Cafe Con Leche, that's coffee with milk. Some of the other ridiculous ones are French Fries which had one ingredient-potatoes which are then grilled then there is Edamame which has two ingredients- onion and edamame. To be honest, the more I think about the fact that I have paid for these "recipes" the angrier I get. I wish I'd bought a different book now, I can't look at this one without getting irritated. When I look through, there are so many "recipes" that have just one, two or three ingredients, they can't be classed as recipes surely. I mean, come on, toasted bread with tomato on, that's just having a joke.
