How It All Vegan
Tanya Barnard
1551520672
January 1999
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Vegans avoid not simply meat, but all animal products including dairy. This diet can be problematic unless it's carefully controlled to be sure that all necessary protein components are present. Barnard and Kramer recount their own roads to veganism, one as a matter of personal choice, the other as a way out of chronic disease. The authors suggest substitutes for animal products and recommend ways to ensure that one consumes sufficient proteins and vitamins while following a vegan regime. Recipes present few surprises, relying on tofu and other soy products as textural components and substitutes for meats and dairy products. Keeping in mind that many cosmetics are based on animal products or tested on animals, the authors offer some helpful recipes for these beauty enhancers as well. Mark Knoblauch

Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Veteran vegetarian cookbook author Lorna Sass (The New Soy Cookbook) offers 40 healthy vegan recipes, international in inspiration. Rich vegetable-based broths, nuts and nut butters, as well as Asian and Indian spices, add luxurious texture and flavor to these vegan dishes making a diet free of animal products (as well as the unhealthy fats and cholesterols they contain) seem easy.

May 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The medical world has been touting the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet for decades. In The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen, Donna Klein provides more than 300 recipes suited to anyone who wants to eat a healthful diet free of animal products. Unlike many vegetarian or vegan cookbooks that simply take the meat or dairy products out of a recipe--or even worse, use tasteless substitutes--this book includes only recipes that actually exist in Mediterranean cuisine. You won't find any grainy cheese substitutes or spongy meat imposters here.

In chapters on every course from appetizers to desserts, the author presents recipe upon recipe for flavorful and healthy dishes--all without meat, dairy, or eggs. Appetizers like Mushrooms Stuffed with Bread Crumbs, Parsley, and Garlic--given a sweet and nutty zing from the addition...

Vegan with a Vengeance
Isa Chandra Moskowitz

Nov 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
To appreciate this quirky vegan cookbook, readers must welcome the author's offhand, rambling style. A chatty Brooklynite who hosts her own public access cooking show, she scatters stories about her mother, her friends and her politics among recipes for goodies like Fresh Corn Fritters and Curried Split Pea Soup. In one anecdote, she writes that her mother liked the scones from "one of those overpriced French cafes in Union Square," prompting the author to create Glazed Orange scones in her mother's honor, and the sweet, rich result rivals the average "overpriced café" model. BBQ Pomegranate Tofu is actually baked, not barbecued, but still the tofu is rich and smoky, terrific over rice or packed into heroes. Even better, the vegan iterations of Spanakopita and Seitan-Portobello Stroganoff so closely...

The Vegan Diet As Chronic Disease Prevention: Evidence Supporting the New Four Food Groups
Kerrie K. Saunders
1590560388
November 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Psychologist and prevention consultant Kerrie K. Saunders posits that America is one of the sickest nations and that many of our diseases can be controlled or eliminated through diet. In The Vegan Diet as Chronic Disease Prevention: Evidence Supporting the New Four Food Groups, she begins with documentation from writings throughout history positing that meat and fat are dietary dangers. The diets of other cultures indicate that four food groups constitute a healthy diet: fruits, grains, vegetables and legumes alone and in combination will provide all the essentials for optimum nutrition. While foods are recommended to improve specific conditions, this is not a recipe or meal plan source but rather a series of essays arguing for the vegan lifestyle. Ample citations are provided to support the theories, and charts...

Rawsome!
Brigitte Mars
1591200601
Feb 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
A raw foods diet advocates exactly that: raw foods. No cooking, no grilling, no steaming, no application of heat of any kind. Why? Because eating food closest to its natural state engenders a tremendous exchange of energy between food and body. The result, over time, is a feeling of buoyant, radiant health. Tackling head-on the skepticism likely to greet proponents of what the world sees as a "fad" diet, renowned nutritionist and long-time raw-foods adherent Brigitte Mars presents historical data, case studies, and scientific evidence confirming the efficacy of raw foods diets in: Increasing energy levels Boosting immune system function Improving digestive function Dispelling depression Supporting emotional stability Clearing the skin Sustaining overall good health In addition, Mars points out the...


Vegan Planet: 400 Irresistible Recipes with Fantastic Flavors from Home and around the World, The Ultimate Guide to Meat-Free, Dairy-Free, and Egg-Free Cooking that Everyone Will Enjoy
Robin Robertson
1558322116
February 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
With 400 recipes, this is probably the biggest vegan (no animal products-meaning dairy- and egg-free) cookbook on the market. It's also one of the best. Robertson (The Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes Cookbook) is a likable guide to possibly unfamiliar ingredients such as flaxseeds and sea vegetables, and the recipe choices are almost overwhelming. Robertson relies on the usual trick of digging into ethnic cuisines (Thai-Style Leaf-Wrapped Appetizer Bits, Baked Sweet Potato and Green Pea Samosas are among the appetizers) for vegetarian options, but she also innovates in clever ways, as with Here's My Heart Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette with hearts of romaine, artichoke hearts, hearts of palm and celery hearts. Some of the most versatile options appear in a chapter dedicated to sauces and dressings, such as Eggless...


The Artful Vegan
Eric Tucker

Nov 2003
Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
In stark contrast to some traditional vegan cookbooks, which feature dishes like lentil burgers and bulgur salad, the Millennium Restaurant's second cookbook pushes the boundaries of vegan cuisine, offering extravagant recipes for dishes such as Stuffed Poblano Chilies over Forbidden Black Rice Risotto with Roasted Corn-Avocado Abdi. Though Tucker, Millennium's executive chef, encourages readers to "dissect our dissections... to take apart our dishes, simplify them," his recipes are often too complex to be realistic for most home cooks. Caramelized Three Onion and Porcini Cappuccino with Truffled Soy Foam calls for an espresso machine, for example, and Quick Pickled Oranges requires access to impeccable produce; the recipe did not work well with standard supermarket citrus. What the San Francisco restaurant...
