Does what is says on the tin but with lots of sugar,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gluten-Free Vegan Comfort Food: 125 Simple and Satisfying Recipes, from "Mac and Cheese" to Chocolate Cupcakes (Paperback)
Firstly, this is an American book and therefor many of the ingredients are not easily available in the UK, although most probably are with some research and substitutes.
It does what it says on the tin: vegan comfort food - a big challenge for anyone, but i was disappointed with just how much sugar the author puts into many of the recipies even savoury ones, which for me makes it a tad unhealthy, especially if you are combatting candida too.
Another thing I personally didn't like was the 'meat alternatives' ie) 'vegan chicken broth' and 'tuna' etc, the thought of which makes me feel sick, As a vegan, i don't wish to mimic meat in any way, just omit it.
If that doesn't bother you, it is a good book and i've earmarked about 9 recipies to try, all of which look particularly comforting :)
There are good overviews and explanations of the more unusual ingredients used and plenty of nice unusual recipies to entice and inspire.
There are only 6 images, but that didn't bother me, i know it would some.
It would have got a 4 if the use of maple syrup and sugar had been less.
A good book overall and worth buying.
BTW, I was more impressed with the 3 books by British author Barbara Cousins - Cooking Without, which hits the mark more satisfactoraly for me (more healthy as well as being gluten free and vegan)
