Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This reissue of UK food editor Amanda Grant's (The Powerful Cookbook) 1999 classic (known then as The New Vegan) is just as flavorful and inspired as it was upon its first release. Giving vegans over 140 options for appetizers, soups, mains, and desserts suitable for any season or occasion, Grant proves again and again that healthy food can be prepared simply and quickly: DIY vegetable chips and Lemon Tahini Dip, a light and zesty pasta with fresh ginger and basil, and an Apricot and Raspberry Cobbler all come together quickly and without fuss, and globe-trotting dishes like Spanish Potato Gratin, an English twist on Tortilla Español, and Thai Pumpkin and Coconut Soup, will help fight palate fatigue. Even dedicated carnivores will find a way to make room for crave-worthy comforts such as Warm Lemon and Olive Oil Beans on Rosemary Mashed Potatoes and a Bright Red Pepper Pesto Linguine that uses deep-fried hazelnuts in lieu of pine nuts, giving inspired cooks more dishes to incorporate into their repertoire. Bookended with dietary recommendations and suggested menus, with nutritional information accompanying each dish, Grant's classic remains a go-to resource for committed vegans. (Sept.)

Tucson Citizen, 10/25/10
“An ideal source for the vegan as well as those who simply want to eat healthier foods. Amanda Grant…serves up recipes that are fairly basic, easy to prepare, and—best of all—delicious.”
 

Examiner.com, 11/11/10
“A great cookbook for newbies and for those who don’t want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen. The recipes are unfussy with good descriptions and instructions. It would make a great holiday gift as well.”
 
MidwestBook Review, November 2010
“Enthusiastically recommended for all busy meal providers (not just vegans)!”

PortlandOregonian, 12/21/10
One of the “Best Cookbooks of 2010”

Taste for Life, April 2011

Foodista.com, 6/15/11“Bottom line, vegan or not you'll enjoy Grant's healthy and fresh new book.”

Curled Up with a Good Book, 7/11/12

“It belongs on the kitchen shelf of anyone who has even a passing interest in quickly and easily prepared healthy food.”

Library Journal - BookSmack!
Released in 2002 when vegan cuisine was denounced by burger-bangers as rabbit food, animal-free diets have since been embraced by a wider range of the populace. Noted British food writer Grant here offers more than 140 meat-, dairy-, and egg-free recipes incorporating veggies, fruits, beans, grains, and other ingredients for producing main dishes, salads, appetizers, and desserts. Recipes include nutritional information; Grand also shares suggestions for pairings. A good, basic starter for anyone looking to experiment with vegan cooking. — "Classic Returns," Booksmack! 2/3/11

    Good for price--OK overall

    The book has good recipes and a nice mix of simple and complex dishes. Everything from appetizers to desserts. Many typos and some poorly explained steps included, but if you have a bit of cooking experience, the recipes are a good starting point to creating a dish.
