Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Atlas is the author of more than half a dozen popular vegetarian cookbooks, including Vegetarian Celebrations. Her vegan cookbook offers a wide variety of quick and easy recipes, most of them made with ingredients available in any large supermarket. Nearly Instant Thai Coconut Corn Soup and Pasta Jambalaya are just some of her family-friendly dishes. Recipes include nutrition information, and most provide menu suggestions. For all vegetarian cookbook collections.

Burton, author of two previous vegan cookbooks, began her newest from her blog. Her recipes call for far more specialty ingredients, like agave nectar, flax meal, and hemp seed nuts, than those in Vegan Express(though Burton does not include nutrition analyses), and many of them are more complicated as well. On the other hand, readers with wheat allergies, whether they are vegan or not, will appreciate the many wheat-free recipes here. For larger collections.
