Editorial Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle
[This] unassuming book is full of recipes for which even a carnivore would give up a night of meat.
Gwinnett Daily Post
It seems like a vegan cookbook would include, say, how to peel a mango, but in actuality, this strict diet can go far beyond the reach of fruits, vegetables and simple salads. Veganomicon...brings out the rounded flavor of this eating lifestyle.
Publishers Weekly

While most vegan cookbooks are anemic, underfed volumes-some no-brainer pasta recipes, a few things to do with tofu and maybe some oddball desserts-this slam-bang effort from vegan chefs Moskowitz and Romero (Vegan with a Vengeance) is thorough and robust, making admirable use of every fruit and vegetable under the sun, without once asking readers to make do with fake meat products and egg replacements. Instead, the eccentric authors offer dozens of novel, delicious ways to get excited about eating meat-, dairy- and egg-free. Take Southwestern Corn Pudding, a winning casserole rich with coconut milk and an unexpected dash of maple syrup-a likely MVP at your next Thanksgiving (whether it's centered around turkey or tofu). Almost as addictive is Rustic White Beans and Mushrooms, which get its bite from fresh herbs, and Lentils and Rice with Caramelized Onions and Spiced Pita Crisps, a transcendent Middle Eastern comfort food. Vegan breakfasts get overdue attention: sitting in front of a hot stack of velvety Blueberry Corn Pancakes and hearty Blue Flannel Hash, who's going to miss the bacon? Best of all is the wide selection of terrific desserts: everything from Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies to decadent Caramel-Apple-Spice Cupcakes boldly fills the space where most eggless, milkless and butterless cookbooks fear to tread.
