I've made quite a few of the recipes (somewhere around 25) and overall I am very happy with the results. There is a lot of variety in the recipes, from basics like broth mix and mayonnaise; to how to use tofu, seitan, and soy curls; and new twists on old favourites (casseroles and soups reminiscent of those many Americans grew up with). Some of the ones I liked best were the Hungarian Paprika Potatoes, Whole Grain Rice Pilaf, and the Classic-Style Benedict for the savoury side; and for the sweet side the blueberry scones win, with the carrot cake coming as a close second. If you are new to vegan cooking, this would be a great book for you as the recipes are fairly simple and there are no super wacky ingredients called for. Perhaps best of all, the book is loaded with photographs. I'm a visual cook and I like to know what a recipe is supposed to look like before I start! I highly recommend this book.
Everyday Vegan Eats is one of the best cookbooks in my vegan library. Zsu’s recipes are easy but delicious, comforting yet unique. In addition to the huge collection of recipes, the book boasts many beautiful color photographs to whet your appetite. Some of the recipe offerings include: * Bacon Tofu—salty, smoky, crispy, and utterly addictive, this amazing bacon substitute is perhaps my favorite recipe in the book. * Baked Macaroni and Cheese—it takes me back to my mom’s comfort food; it’s the best vegan macaroni and cheese I’ve ever tried (and I’ve tried many). * Fudge Brownies—these are the brownies I thought I’d never be able to have again after going vegan; they’re moist and crumbly with an intensely chocolate flavor that’s enhanced by a surprise ingredient. * Caramel Sauce—don’t let caramel sauce intimidate you like it did me for years; Zsu’s recipe walks you through the process step by step for a yummy caramel good enough to drench all kinds of desserts. * Blueberry Scones—full of berry and lemon flavor, these delicately sweet scones are easy to make and easy to eat. * Cheesy Summer Squash Sauté—a creamy, cheesy sauce dresses savory summer squash for a quick and nutritious supper. * Glazed Holiday Roast—this impressive but simple recipe will easily take the place of those tiny, expensive store-bought roasts for any special occasion (and taste a whole lot better). This book is an essential addition to any cook’s library and I guarantee you’ll find old (and new) favorites within its pages!
