Product Description

Review

There are many books on the market about the hows and whys of eating a vegan diet, and Linda Long, known in the meatless world for her food writing and photography, adds her own contribution. Virgin Vegan: The Meatless Guide to Pleasing Your Palate starts off with the usual staples of any book on veganism: reasons to go meat-free, what vegans eat, basic cooking methods, the low-down on nutrients like protein and vitamin B-12. She also includes useful tips for new vegans such as how to go about getting a vegan meal in a non-vegan restaurant, as well as a great list of additional resources. Where this book really shines, however, is in the recipes. Mashed Kabocha Squash with Toasted Coconut, Chef Adams' Linguine Bolognese, and more will have readers eager to head off to the farmers' market to pick up ingredients, while desserts like Pecan Pie (vegan, really!) and Jane's Mango Ice Cream Pops will satisfy the sweet tooth. The binding style of this cookbook detracts somewhat (you'll have to find a way to prop it open while you cook), as does the fact that many recipes will require you to turn the pages to complete, always an annoyance. Still, this book is bound to leave you with some exciting new ideas.

There are better books on the market for the new vegan, but definitely consider this one for the recipes included. --Holly Scudero"SanFrancisco BookReview.com" (02/08/2013)

I saw this book advertised in a copy of the vegan society magazine, I am not vegan but wish to be so and so far I have found most cookbooks to read like this "adjghakjdghjkagh" in other words total gibberish requiring millions of ingredients id never heard of in tiny amounts and when on a shoe string food budget fancy recipes just work out too expensive. This book is very basic I agree with a previous reviewer, however for a newbie or somebody struggling with food I think it is ideal it contains the basic nutritional info required, basics of cooking several grains, photos of a lot of the recipes and most of the recipes are simple and contain sensible ingredients and not many of them (bingo!). There are also handy tips and tricks concerning ordering out and travelling, its a book of common sense really (or in my case not common at all ha). I am actually off out to the shop in a minute to get some ingredients in to start making some of the food in here!

This book is full if useful information but at the same time its simple. It has information on the type of things seasoned vegans know and virgin vegans may find useful. (For example its has sections on vegan alternatives and what dishes they are used for). Instead of finding the information in bits and pieces here and there over a long period of time, its all simplified in this book. I am a virgin vegan and I have my first vegan dinner party coming up. Out of my all my vegan books I have chosen two of the meals from this book.

By K. Platt TOP 100 REVIEWER on 2 May 2013
Format: Hardcover
Here's a book with an intriguing, catchy title. Thinking of giving up meat? Want to know what vegan really is? Have a non-eating relative or friend? Find out all about being vegan. This book tells you what a vegan is, what a vegan eats, what all those foodstuffs with strange names are. It also includes fab recipes and there is a resources section too. This book has good tips on ordering in restaurants, what to do when traveling. You'll find meal plan templates, food preparation tips, nutrition guide and much more. There are recipes for all meals. I like the chocolate stuffed French toast or rather the idea of it - I'm not going to eat it - promise, I mean chocolate for breakfast. Lots of protein rich, vitamin rich ideas here and lots you'll want to try.

This book looks so great from the outside, but I guess in this case the old adage of not judging a book by its cover is true.

I love cooking and have a huge collection of both vegetarian and 'normal' cookbooks. I've just switched to a vegan diet and was looking for some advice on vegan nutrition and some recipes to try. Sadly, in this case the nutritional information is beyond basic and there isn't a single recipe that makes me want to try it. Maybe I'll update this review if I ever change my mind on that... Unappetising photography and a high amount of 'meat substitute' type ingredients really put me off. If I'd got this from a shop, I would have taken it back for a refund.

I REALLY wanted to like this book, but definitely would say save your money and go elsewhere.
