After reading and hearing so much about this book, I was already planning to buy it. But to my delight I was given this book as a gift for a Secret Santa (or Chris Kindle as they call it in Ireland)! I was thrilled!       Here's my review on this book. I hope it will be helpful to you.      Book Introduction   The book starts with a good introduction on basic cooking - vegetables, grains, beans etc. I find this very helpful especially for …

What I like best is that the recipes are made out of real ingredients instead of relying on egg replacers, fake meats and such. I have nothing wrong with those products and enjoy the occasional Tofurkey kielbasa, but such foods (processed) certainly aren't healthy on a daily basis.

I love this cookbook.  Seriously, it holds a special place in my heart, right next to my Cuisinart food processor and boxed wine.  I had absolutely no flipping idea how to cook (anything, animal or vegetable) when I decided to go vegan.  This book supplied me with a bunch of basic how-to sort of things, like whether or not to salt the eggplant.  Without this book I might still be wondering just how many ways one can cook broccoli…  This book is loaded with wonderful …

I admit, the Veganomicon wasn't exactly as amazing as everyone I knew had made it out to be. I was still excited to get it, however. The recipes are easy to read, require ingredients that you can get at just about any large supermarket, and are pretty simple dishes to make. A lot of the dishes were really too simple and basic for me, but I'd say I'm pretty knowledgeable about vegetarian cooking. This would be a great book for a beginning vegan/vegetarian, and a good book for your cookbook …

My favorite vegan cookbook. Great recipes of all sorts. The book isn't too fancy or expensive, but funny and informative. And recipes like the potato salad have fooled my non-veg friends who have yet to taste the difference.

First off, I would like to state that I am not a vegan.  I am a vegetarian from Wisconsin who finds the idea of veganism difficult to wrap my mind around (what about the cheese??).       With these feelings aside, any of Isa's cookbooks are wonderful additions to a kitchen.  Rather than using highly processed ingredients (mainly meat substitutes) that a lot of vegetarian cookbooks use, Isa's recipes utlize a plethora of healhy ingredients that are easy …

My girlfriend, being vegetarian and also thoroughly in control of Sunday night dinners, asked me to pick up this book from a Chapters near our place. I was skeptical (as with all cookbooks- after all, can't we just go online?) and bought it only grudgingly. However, on the bus ride back home, I perused the first few pages and immediately changed my mind. Veganomicon introduces vegeterian thinking without the preachy, haughty sophisticated tone that many vegetarian or vegan authors use. There …

Good cookbook for vegans and non-vegans who just want to get new cooking ideas. This inclusion and variety makes it good, as does the ease and simplicity.

When one makes the decision to convert to the vegan lifestyle, apart from the jackass comments from friends and family, it now becomes a real challenge to eat healthy, and re-learn how to cook. Agave Nectar, Agar Flakes, Seitan, what is all this stuff?!  That's where Veganomicon comes in. It was one of the first cookbooks I got, for christmas of my first year of being Vegan.   This cookbook is amazing. Apart from having every cuisine style under the sun, it has intoduction chapters …

Mine is by no means a vegan household, but how could I resist a book with this title? By the time I had found the authors' explanation, I was in love with the book: "...a big vegan cookbook needed a big vegan name. (But just to be on the safe side, don't read this cookbook backward at the stroke of midnight.)" So I checked it out of the library a month ago Shhh! I KNOW I need to bring it back!      The clever introduction makes the case that "vegan food = normal food." The authors …
