Great recipies; some imagination needed,
This review is from: Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar: 100 Dairy-Free Recipes for Everyone's Favorite Treats (Paperback)
This is a very useful little book. Because it's vegan, it's a handy book to have around for baking days when you don't happen to have any eggs or butter in the house.
There's one special ingredient, ground flax seed, that pops up quite often. I found it in Holland and Barratt and one packet lasts for ages, many recipes' worth. So it's not that much of a problem to keep it in the house.
I've done several recipes from it and they've all been well received. I just don't bother mentioning to people that they're vegan.
I've also tried substituting gluten-free flour for ordinary flour in a few recipes and that worked fine as well.
The reason you'll need some imagination?
- some recipes don't have pictures
- the book hasn't been adapted for the UK market, so you'll have do to a bit of substituting and figuring out.
I think it's worth it, though; this is a book I come back to often.
