    I ve been a vegan for almost six years, and in that time I ve amassed a rather large collection of plant based cookbooks.And some of them feel very samey, filled with very similar main courses and sides Some are overly fancy with complex dishes of expensive ingredients I ve never even heard of They re impractical Veganism doesn t have to be difficult and the food involved doesn t have to require huge amounts of effort and time It can be simple and straightforward just like this cookbook Thi I ve been a vegan for almost six years, and in that time I ve amassed a rather large collection of plant based cookbooks.And some of them feel very samey, filled with very similar main courses and sides Some are overly fancy with complex dishes of expensive ingredients I ve never even heard of They re impractical Veganism doesn t have to be difficult and the food involved doesn t have to require huge amounts of effort and time It can be simple and straightforward just like this cookbook This is packed full of so many recipes and ideas, none of them particularly difficult or expensive The muffins were a particular favourite of mine So this is a good cookbook if you want relatively quick vegan food that is still healthy and tasty Very much recommended

    O.M.G I should have known, after using Veganomicon for a couple of years, that the cookbook that launched Isa Chandra Moskowitz was bound to be a keeper Isa credits Terry Hope Romero with the Chili Sin Carne recipe that ROCKS with its own calypso band on days 2 and 3 Make it a day early if you ve guests coming and this recipe will stay in your memory forever And the Macadamia Coconut Carrot Cake is, without exaggeration, the far and away BEST carrot cake I have ever encountered I probably w O.M.G I should have known, after using Veganomicon for a couple of years, that the cookbook that launched Isa Chandra Moskowitz was bound to be a keeper Isa credits Terry Hope Romero with the Chili Sin Carne recipe that ROCKS with its own calypso band on days 2 and 3 Make it a day early if you ve guests coming and this recipe will stay in your memory forever And the Macadamia Coconut Carrot Cake is, without exaggeration, the far and away BEST carrot cake I have ever encountered I probably would use 1 4 1 2 cup less sugar because I am not enad of sweets so sweet, but let s not quibble This is pure, unadulterated GENIUS I am a fan If everyone knew that going meatless was so bloody delicious, this would end any argument I almost feel like laughing when I hear don t tell them it s vegan as though unaugmented vegetable matter were something queer But what strikes me again, after working my way through Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World and The Joy of Vegan Baking, is how baked goods suffer not at all from lack of eggs or milk products In fact, these baked goods are among the best I have ever tasted Full stop

    I ve been cooking out of VWAV for several years now it s about time I write a review for it If you are new to vegan cooking, or looking for a basic place to start wooing a vegan date, this is a solid, dependable book to start with While I love Isa s newer book veganomicon a lot , I have to give credit where credit is due and say that VWAV is the root of much of my cooking ability I would be lying if I didn t say that many of the basic dishes that I science up on the regular come from t I ve been cooking out of VWAV for several years now it s about time I write a review for it If you are new to vegan cooking, or looking for a basic place to start wooing a vegan date, this is a solid, dependable book to start with While I love Isa s newer book veganomicon a lot , I have to give credit where credit is due and say that VWAV is the root of much of my cooking ability I would be lying if I didn t say that many of the basic dishes that I science up on the regular come from this cookbook The biscuits that accompany my family s famous secret recipe vegan gravy they are the biscuits from this book The muffin recipes are semi dependable, although I don t love the pumpkin muffins The seitan recipe is simple good.Isa Chandra Moskowitz is a shining star in the vegan cookbook world, providing recipes that are often kid pleasing, easy to cook, and push us vegans out of the stir fried tofu arena into greener pastures Some techniques that seem intimidating are clearly explained in the PUNK POINTS sections This cookbook not only provides inspirational recipes it gives you the tools talents you need to take your cookery onto another level I am definitely a better person as a result of this cookbook And how many cookbooks can you say that about Not too many

    I like the photos in this volume Not as many entrees I want to try as I had hoped, but a grand emphasis on fun vegan breakfasts.

    Very good, but necessarily recommended for those exploring dabbling in a plant based diet.I m a huge fan of Isa s recipes Though I have only made a few from this cookbook so far, I have made several from Appetite for Reduction Fast and Filling Low Fat Vegan Meals and Veganomicon The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook and been impressed with almost every single one Veganomicon has somecomplex recipes, but Appetite and Vegan Vengeance have many recipes that are very easy or fairly easy to mak Very good, but necessarily recommended for those exploring dabbling in a plant based diet.I m a huge fan of Isa s recipes Though I have only made a few from this cookbook so far, I have made several from Appetite for Reduction Fast and Filling Low Fat Vegan Meals and Veganomicon The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook and been impressed with almost every single one Veganomicon has somecomplex recipes, but Appetite and Vegan Vengeance have many recipes that are very easy or fairly easy to make and probably would not intimidate even novice chefs or those new to vegan cooking baking They are sooo delicious The Post Punk Vegan Kitchen is Isa s website and I highly recommend it for those new to veganism, dabbling in it, or who just want to check out some of her recipes before they invest in one of the books I personally enjoy the chatty style in her cookbooks and it helps me feel like I have a friend in the kitchen and gives me some added confidence while I cook However, this could be a bit off putting for those wanting just a plant based diet or to omnivores dabbling in some meat free meals who don t want lessons about why veganism is an ethical choice Also, I must say I was a little disappointed and thus docking one star in Vengeance because, amongst some personal anecdotes, Isa includes one with a political slant that could alienate readers not of her persuasion Of course, it is certainly her prerogative to share her political opinions and they are probably ones that many vegans would agree with But, something makes me a bit uncomfortable about the way it was presented, as if everyone reading her book would agree with her and I know that not all vegans would This might be off putting to some readers, or to some people exploring the idea of becoming vegan, if it is a political affiliation they do not identify with themselves Many people already assume a lot of things about you if you say you are vegan Political affiliation is probably one of them I personally think that animal welfare is something that people from all political persuasions can and should consider I remain a big Isa fan, I think her heart is in the right place and her recipes rock, but I do wish this book had not included that particular story because it could infuriate rather than welcome certain people to the vegan fold

    I love this book with all my heart There is not one meal that I have made that hasn t been delicious the fact that my incredibly carnivorous and generally unhealthy food devouring family is duly impressed with each new dish is amazing I appreciate the simple yet malleable nature of most of the recipes well, the ones I ve tried A vegan due to a variety of food related health issues, I also have to keep my foods gluten free, and do my best to keep them low fat It s incredibly easy with the I love this book with all my heart There is not one meal that I have made that hasn t been delicious the fact that my incredibly carnivorous and generally unhealthy food devouring family is duly impressed with each new dish is amazing I appreciate the simple yet malleable nature of most of the recipes well, the ones I ve tried A vegan due to a variety of food related health issues, I also have to keep my foods gluten free, and do my best to keep them low fat It s incredibly easy with these The recipes don t rely on battering and frying tofu 101 ways and they are not overly carb heavy The result Foods that are immensely satisfying and incredibly tasty as well as easy on the stomach, the blood sugar, the belt notches, and the wallet In my experiences anyway I cannot stop making the Chickpea Broccoli casserole with added spinach and peas, and sometimes TVP in place of the sorely missed Japanese breadcrumbs or my version of the Veggie burgers baked I also love the Punk Rock Chickpea Gravy on Mashed Potatoes even on mashed chickpeas and the Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Garlic Dessert wise, I ve only made the Mexican Chocolate Rice Pudding I plan to try other desserts,pizzas and waffles when I m ready to experiment with GF floursbut not before I ve made every soup and entree Looking forward to reading VEGANOMICON

    As a professed hater of vegetables, it s nothing short of amazing that I even picked up a vegan cookbook, let alone gave it 5 stars I don t consider myself a vegan, in fact, I love meat But I do hate tortured animals and chemical additives, so I thought I d give it a try I ve made about 8 of these recipes and each one has turned out divine What do I mean by divine Suffice it to say that my fiance is usually considered the best cook in the house, but after cooking those last 8 recipes, he qu As a professed hater of vegetables, it s nothing short of amazing that I even picked up a vegan cookbook, let alone gave it 5 stars I don t consider myself a vegan, in fact, I love meat But I do hate tortured animals and chemical additives, so I thought I d give it a try I ve made about 8 of these recipes and each one has turned out divine What do I mean by divine Suffice it to say that my fiance is usually considered the best cook in the house, but after cooking those last 8 recipes, he quickly abdicated the throne and I now feel like a vegan Rachel Ray

    It doesn t quite feel right only giving this book five stars It wasthan a cookbook, it was an education Isa s prediction from her introduction absolutely came true for me A cookbook isn t just light beach reading it becomes part of your life In a few month s time it will be scribbled with your notes and splashed with tamari and tomato sauce Its food stained, dog eared pages will bring back memories As a vegetarian for over a decade, I decided 2012 would the year I would go completely It doesn t quite feel right only giving this book five stars It wasthan a cookbook, it was an education Isa s prediction from her introduction absolutely came true for me A cookbook isn t just light beach reading it becomes part of your life In a few month s time it will be scribbled with your notes and splashed with tamari and tomato sauce Its food stained, dog eared pages will bring back memories As a vegetarian for over a decade, I decided 2012 would the year I would go completely vegan As a companion to making the switch, I resolved to cook every recipe in this book over the course of the year Although I started the year making great progress, after a few months I started to burn out It wasn t just cooking from the same cookbook all the time that got me, it was just having to cook recipes all the time rather than just throwing together something simple like beans and rice on some nights So I adjusted my goal to cooking half the recipes in the book, and I m happy to day I exceeded that target by my count there are 133 unique recipes I made 72.There is no doubt the type of cooking Isa is presenting in this book is comfort food, not health food It s full of oil, white flour, syrup, refined sugar, etc But to a new vegan it s great, because it proves there is even such a thing as vegan comfort food I d say the books strongest section is brunch, just about everything in there is amazing The main courses are a littlehit and miss, but there are some truly exceptional ones in there Check my progress updates on the book for my ratings of each of the recipes I cooked After a year of cooking, my top five are 1 Mushroom and Sun dried Tomato Risotto pg 186 2 Brooklyn Pad Thai pg 180 3 Pancakes pg 31 4 Isa Pizza pg 131 5 Marinated Tofu pg 145 Thank you Isa for making this book We ve been on quite a journey together, and it s been delicious

    This is a reread for me I got my first copy when it came out in 2005 It was the first cookbook I bought for myself and the first one I read that felt like it was for me It was a little edgy with a do your own thing, punk rock, love life kind of vibe It was a good jumping off point Techniques and tools are explained well, most of the recipes are super easy and the food rocks Everything I ve made from the book so far has been good My carnivorous buddies even like what I ve made for them.

    I received this last year for xxx mas from melissa yeah Seriously, Isa does a good job about telling a story and making it interesting, but her flavor profiles are off I KNOW that being a good cook doesn t mean following a recipe, but sometimes when it says This is really good and yadda yadda in the book and on the web site I trust too much So with a grain of salt literally TASTE everything you make in a small batch before you commit to ANYTHING in this book I enjoy this book for it I received this last year for xxx mas from melissa yeah Seriously, Isa does a good job about telling a story and making it interesting, but her flavor profiles are off I KNOW that being a good cook doesn t mean following a recipe, but sometimes when it says This is really good and yadda yadda in the book and on the web site I trust too much So with a grain of salt literally TASTE everything you make in a small batch before you commit to ANYTHING in this book I enjoy this book for it s great ideas, but momma needs to catch up with someone who will make her CHECK and RECHECK her ratio s and flavor profiles.rar rar rar food
