A well balanced vegan cookbook for cooks of all levels

When I first noticed 500 Vegan Recipes on the shelves, I almost shrugged it off. I have a ton of vegan cookbooks, but something compelled me to buy this book. I am so thankful that I did, because it was $19.99 very well spent. This is one of the best, most comprehensive cookbooks I have ever read for vegans.

Where do I begin to share with you how wonderful this cookbook is? There are 20 chapters, one of which is an overview of how to use the cookbook. The remaining 19 chapters are crammed with wonderful vegan recipes, from breakfast, to salads and salad dressings, to casseroles and savory pies and tarts. For the more adventurous, there are chapters on candies and bars, sweet and savory muffins and even an entire chapter on faux meats! That was something that truly impressed me. I spent time living away at graduate school and I wish I had this book then, because buying packaged mock meat was expensive and not always the quality I wanted, but this has recipes for Apple Sage Fauxage, Independence Day Wieners, and Seitan Bacon Crumbles along with many more! Yay!

There is also allergy information for the recipes, so if you are looking for gluten free or soy free recipes, you can find those at a glance. There is also an icon for 30 minute meals, so you can find speedy recipes to make on those frantic weekdays, or rushed weekends. The icons make finding recipes that meet your needs quick and easy.

It is hard to impress me with vegan cookbooks, because gourmet vegan cooking is something that comes as naturally to our household as breathing, but this book made my mouth water, and made me want to get in the kitchen. There are recipes of all levels, and even an introduction to `What is Vegan Cooking' so this would be an ideal gift to give someone who is thinking about going vegan. If you are an experienced vegan cook, this would be awesome addition to your cookbook library. Either way, at less than $20, you can't afford to not get it.

So with 500 wonderful vegan recipes waiting for you, with dishes from breakfast to late dessert and everything inbetween, run out and grab yourself a copy now!

Highest recommendations!
