Veganomicon The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook

Vegan Vegetarian

Veganomicon The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook

People are getting more health conscious these days and many believe that the way to good health is to go vegetarian. But it is not easy to let go of those delicious meat dishes, especially since the word vegetable normally brings to mind bland and utterly flavorless fare. Authors Isa Chandra Moskowitza and Terry Hope Romero come to the rescue with their witty and actually quite amusing cook book – Veganomicon, The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook. The book is huge but covers all areas of cooking such as how to stock up your pantry, buying the correct kitchen equipment, preparing the food and, of course, the actual cooking instructions as well as a long list of recipes.

[easyazon-image-link asin=”156924264X” alt=”Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook” src=”http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51NCqBX5K2L._SL160_.jpg” align=”left” width=”160″ height=”180″]The list covers snacks, appetizers, dips, spreads, salads and dressings, sandwiches (they call it sammiches) vegetables, grains, beans, tofu, tempeh, and seitan, soups, casseroles, one-pot meals, pasta, sauces and fillings, breads, muffins and scones, cookies and desserts.

All that information can be dauting to a cook new to be vegetarian genre but Moskowitz and Romero make it interesting, generously sprinkling their recommendations with dashes of humour.

It actually makes you want to go out immediately to stock up your kitchen and get started on those yummy-sounding recipes from the book.

Unfortunately, bearing in mind that the authors live in New York and many of their recipes are for western dishes, certain terms and ingredients can be rather baffling to east.

What the heck is a ‘blini’ or ‘tamales’ or ‘tarragon’? And these are littered all over the book. But all said and done, there are still some interesting dishes that Eastern can try out and they might just get you started on your vegetarian way.
