Great cookbook. This is one of many that I've looked at recently and one of the best that I've found. more
recommended for: all cookbook collectors, all vegans & vegetarians and those who enjoy delicious foodWell, for some reason I thought that this was going to be more like a thorough vegan Joy of Cooking type book but it isn’t quite so comprehensive. However; it is great, and I didn’t end up being disappointed.Only cons: 1. all the photos are in the middle of the book vs. on the recipe pages2. for my taste too long vegetable steaming times given (although possibly they & I are thinking of different sized pieces of veggies)3. and most importantly: the authors don’t have a restaurant serving these recipes where I live in San Francisco ☺Pros:1. all of the recipes (except for those that contain foods I don’t like: seiten, tempeh, capers, vinegar, mustard, a few other ingredients) look delicious2. such easy instructions for all the recipes and in general3. while at first the book didn’t appear attractive to me, as I read it, I changed my mind: it has a great layout and it was easy to read and I decided I did like its appearance4. very helpful icons for applicable recipes: soy free, gluten free, low fat/reduced fat, under 45 minutes, supermarket friendly5. creative and practical recipe organization and table of contents (I was going to list the table of contents outline in my review because I like it so much, but instead I encourage others to buy, borrow, look at the book for themselves)6. very informative with just the right amount of humor: I like humorous cookbooks; this wasn’t one of the funniest but it’s not meant to be silly, and it also contains a smattering of Yiddish words (there was at least one, I think more) and a few vegan versions of what I think of as Jewish comfort food – loved it!Just some of the recipes I’d like to eat (and all look possible for even me to cook given the terrific instructions): Spinach-Noodle Kugel, Baked Potato and Greens Soup with Potato-Wedge Croutons, Cauliflower and Mushroom Pot Pie with Black Olive Crust, Grilled Yuka Tortillas, Potato and Kale Enchiladas with Roasted Chile Sauce, Broccoli Millet Croquettes, Black Bean Burgers, Spaghetti and Beanballs, Beanball Sub, Mexican Millet, Red Lentil-Cauliflower Curry, Acorn Squash Pear and Adzuki Soup with Sautéed Shiitakes, Almond Quinoa Muffins, Mushroom Gravy, Marinara Sauce with combined mushroom and garlic variations, Creamy Kalamata Spread, Holiday Cranberry Sauce, Jalapeno Corn Gravy, Smlove Pie, Jelly Donut Cupcakes, Lower Fat Banana Bread, Maple and Brown Sugar Pinwheels, Wheat Free Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chewy Chocolate Raspberry Cookies, Pistachio-Rose Water Cookies, Lower-Fat Deep Chocolate Bundt Cake, and there are many others as well.Gosh, writing this has made me way too hungry. I’m usually more of a cookbook reader than a cook, but I am very tempted to make at least some of the above recipes.more
No eggs in my cookies any more.more
One of the best vegan cookbooks I've owned and used. The recipes are delicious and easy to understand. It's a definite must have.more
Not for the beginner or the faint of heart! Veganomicon is the ultimate vegan cookbook. It is full of amazing, detailed recipes which require many uncommon ingredients. While the results of are amazing, this one is best for the seasoned vegan cook and not the best place for a rookie to start.more
There are recipes in this book that I would probably make every night, if I could. (The "Udon with Shiitake Mushrooms and Kale in a Miso Broth," the "Caramelized Onion-Butternut Roast with Chestnuts," and virtually every soup recipe in here are particular favorites.) As the introduction promises, most of them can also accommodate a little bit of flexing on quantities or ingredient substitution and still be delicious, which makes them easy to prepare the second time and beyond without having to keep your eyes glued to the book while cooking. This was the very first cookbook I purchased for myself, and the only one from which I cooked during my first months of Living On My Own, so I feel like I have to give the extensive introduction to cooking techniques and the detailed, chatty boxes that pepper the recipes with extra information all of the credit for making me the (relatively) unscarred, enthusiastic vegetarian chef that I am. As a kitchen reference for nascent veggie chefs and a source for animal-free recipes that can appease adamant carnivores, the Veganomicon is pretty much unparalleled.My less-than-perfect review is based primarily on the amount of time that the recipes require. As there's a special icon for recipes that take less than forty-five minutes to prepare, and that quantity never seems to take vegetable prep into account - even for dishes with 6+ ingredients to rinse, slice, mince, chop, etc. - most of the recipes are too time-intensive to prepare on even a moderately busy weeknight. This isn't true of vegan or vegetarian cooking in general, though, and as a result, I've turned to different books and magazines (like the Vegetarian Times) for meals that are still good, but quicker, on a regular basis. Moreover, the prohibitive amount of time that some items take can be especially off-putting in the case of an appetizer or a salad, or one of the rare dishes that's not insanely delicious when it's done. (Yeah, I'm talking about you, "Kabocha-Udon Winter Stew.") So, while the Veganomicon has a wealth of information about vegan cooking and solid soup and entrée recipes, most of the recipes and sub-sections included for the sake of making it a comprehensive cookbook have rarely, if ever, been of use to me. If more of them were, I'd probably have maxed out the stars on this review.more
Great if you need to make something on the fancy side, but as with any cookbook, try dishes out first.This cookbook is a little fancypants/foodie for my everyday needs. I'm sure it will make a great reference for special occasions or when I just need to get out of a rut. Most of the time I am too frugal (and too fond of simplicity) to invest in the flourishes that populate this book -- although they look delicious and will likely make wonderful "sometimes" treats.Admittedly, I have only tried a couple of the recipes. One turned out great, but the other was a total dud -- it was bland and had some serious texture issues. I made it again but frankensteined the recipe with a similar one in another book, cooked some ingredients separately (fixed the texture issue), and tweaked the spices myself. It was delicious that way. I think maybe I require Too Much At All Times in the spice/heat department. That's my problem, not the authors'.Check this book out to look it over & try a few recipes, then invest if it suits your style.more
The best cookbook in my collection, vegan or not! Every recipe I have tried from Veganomicon has turned out well. Ingredients are for the most part easy to find, and directions are very clear, even for beginning cooks. A great addition to any cook's collection, and the gold standard for vegetarians and vegans!more
Hands-down my favourite vegan cookbook. You know how you buy cookbooks, and try maybe 8 recipes, and only 2 or 3 end up in regular rotation? Within a month of buying this book, I'd made about 20 recipes in it, and I don't even remember what my regular dishes were before I had this.There is a good mix of recipes here in terms of quick and easy vs. more work but worth it. There are icons to mark the recipes that can be made in less than 45 minutes (and in most cases, there is 10 - 25 mins of prep work, and then 20-30 mins of simmering/baking unattended), gluten-free, can-find-all-the-ingredients-at-a-normal-grocery-store and a few others. These icons are very helpful, and make meal planning easy.My favourite recipes so far: Lasagna (and its several variations - by far the best vegan lasagna I've tried), Spaghetti and Beanballs, Spaghetti Squash Mexicana, Portobello Mushroom Salad, Po Boys (my boyfriend's new second-favourite food after pizza) and the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.more
The recipes are amazing. The food is amazing. I feel like a genius borne from the flames from the fires of the kitchens of the vegans of the ancient worlds. Except, of course, the vegans of the ancient worlds didn't have such awesome inventions like food processors. If you want to become vegan, learn how to cook, and are willing to invest some time and money into quality groceries and (optionally) tools, this cookbook is a great addition to your library.more
This book was a revelation--fabulous recipes a notch up from most of my other vegan cookbooks. Moskowitz's humor comes through abundantly in the recipe chats, so there's no drudgery involved in following her recipes. Some of my favorites: lasagne, chick pea seitan, rosemary foccacia. My one disappointment is that, in my edition at least, the authors did not spend as much time on editing (or selecting a good editor) as on developing their recipes. There are a few typos and omissions that could lead to mistakes if the user is not careful.more
Veganomicon has a staggering number of recipes, mostly in the same vein and style as Vegan with a Vengeance. If you enjoyed Isa's first book, you'll enjoy this addition to the collection.more
We were thrilled to get our anxiously awaited copy of Veganomicon last week, and so far we've made several dishes, all of them excellent. Our favorites are the Walnut-Mushroom Pate (oh my, that's good), Snobby Joes (I'll cut down on the salt next time, but otherwise - delicious!), Chile Cornmeal-Crusted Tofu with Green Pumpkin-Seed Mole (unusual and very tasty), Hot & Sour Soup with Wood Ears & Napa Cabbage (perfect for chilly fall evenings) and Kabocha-Udon Winter Stew (likewise). This book is chock-full of recipes and cooking tips. We love Vegan With a Vengeance but I think we may come to rely on Veganomicon even more.more
