The combination of ridiculously lengthy ingredient lists and the fact that these millions of ingredients were often not cheap, or easy to find led to me falling back to my peskatarian upbringing. Even searching for recipes on the net, it seems like going vegan and excluding some things from your diet naturally equals super complicated dishes that you need to have meticulously planned and shopped for in advance.
= IF YOU STRUGGLE WITH THE INGREDIENTS OF VEGAN COOKING, BUY THIS BOOK!!!
It's amazing. The lists of ingredients are half the time shorter than those for our meat-eating friends, and although I haven't tried everything those I have tried have been great. On top of the fact that I as a person, as well as as a vegan, struggle quite a lot with what to eat for breakfast, and lunch. I try to avoid wheat for health reasons and that immediately cuts out toast, cereal, x on toast etc. - all the good stuff. The good ideas + some gf options are perfect for me. The focus is on breakfast and not so much lunch, but lots of the main meal or side ideas can be adapted for lunch time.
All in all I love this book, it's perfect for students or anyone totally bemused by other vegan recipe books!
This book is perfect for that. The recipes are nice and simple (yet very delicious) and don't require anything out of the ordinary.
I also like the writing style, there's some good advice in there and the recipes are relatively easy and appealing. One criticism I have is that I pesonally find the proportions are sometimes abit off, e.g. in the minted pea, caramelised red onion and aspargus tarts, it states 4 red onions for 4 tarts, but when slicing them up this seemed like loads to me. I mean, I know they shrink when you cook them but I stopped at three and still found it abit too much, also I used a much smaller amount of peas for the puree (think it was about half) and still ended up with too much puree left over. Then the watermelon salad called for half a watermelon, this also seemed like way too much so I just used a quarter, and I still found less would've been better. But, I guess you could tweak the recipes to suit your own tastes. I wasn't too keen on those two recipes.Read more ›
The beginning of the book is about Aine's vegan journey which is not at all preachy or condescending then follows the recipes which fall into the usual chapters, breakfast, soups, dinners etc. Photos do not accompany every recipe but I don't think that's absolutely necessary, we all know what hummus looks like after all.
The 2 standout recipes for me were from the Simple Suppers chapter. Cheats Moussaka was like a party in my mouth, all the flavours I love about Moussaka ( the cinnamon, cream, aubergine and tomato sauce) without the meat. I really didn't miss it and the hubs, a meat and potatoes man enjoyed it too. Just a note about the cooking time, this actually took 1.5 hours in the oven even with parboiled potatoes not the 45 mins stated.
So, the Moussaka was divine but the herby pasta (tasted like fennely pesto) with the slow roasted tomatoes I had to roast for 8 hours but so totally worth it was positively transcendental. Big hit with my 5 year old daughter too. I did cut back on the herbs specified, I used 15g each of basil and parsley as this 15g completely eradicated my parsley plant.Read more ›
