What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher, 2/1/12
“It’s a great book for anyone thinking of looking into one or both of the dietary changes.”

Publishers Weekly, 2/20/12“Whether readers are following a gluten-free vegan lifestyle due to medical, health, or ethical reasons, they're likely to find O'Brien's follow-up to The Gluten-Free Vegan to be a helpful resource when the craving for comfort food hits…Folks in search of inventive riffs (she's even included a kid-friendly chapter with ‘chicken’ nuggets that uses tempeh instead of poultry) are sure to find a few new favorites here.” Tuscan Citizen, 2/18/12“This nifty cookbook proves the point that living a gluten-free lifestyle doesn’t mean giving up many of your favorite foods…Complete with information about gluten-free ingredients such as flours and sweeteners, their nutrients, and how they affect a recipe’s texture and flavor, this cookbook serves up gluten-free, vegan dishes that are easy and fun to prepare without sacrificing taste…I loved this cookbook.”
“Get this book!” Library Journal, 3/2/12
“Recommended to readers looking for gluten-free, vegan versions of their favorite homemade dishes.”, 3/5/12
Gluten-Free Vegan Comfort Food reworks a lot of classics and makes a good addition to a cookbook library.”, 3/7/12
“Whether following a diet restricted by health concerns or conscience, cooks and home chefs will find a nice variety of tempting recipes that are so good, we forget that they are ‘healthy.’”

Portland Oregonian, 3/12/12“Recipes, which include things like Mac and Cheese and Chocolate Cupcakes…evoke memories of Mom's home cooking…The book includes lists of foods to avoid, pantry essentials and easy-to-understand explanations of unusual ingredients and celiac disease—essential stuff for people who are new to the gluten-free world.” Portland Press Herald, 3/14/12 “If you're thinking of trying on veganism to see if it fits, this is one of those books that might help you make the transition. O'Brien includes a helpful glossary of ingredients that may be unfamiliar to you, such as teff flour and organic agave cactus nectar, and explains how they are used…There are also plenty of tempting recipes—a butternut squash soup, mashed sweet potatoes, guacamole—that can be made with what you already have in your kitchen.”, 3/15/12“People who are really determined to have food that is both vegan and gluten-free will applaud the recipes.”, 3/27/12
“Those new to the diet, or friends and family who are struggling with good ideas to make for those following a gluten-free and vegan diet, would really benefit from these creative yet simple recipes.”

The Year of the Vegan (blog), 4/9
“The recipes themselves are easy enough to follow, and weren't difficult to make…A good book to have GF or not, vegan or not.” San Francisco Book Review, 5/2/12
“Stuffed with easy to prepare, traditional comfort foods—with the not-so-traditional adjustment of using all gluten-free and vegan ingredients…If you’re just starting out on the trail of allergen-free cooking, this book is easy to read and the recipes extremely easy to follow. If you’re a pro at this, ingredients will be familiar and you can finally find some recipes for those treasured family favorites!”
Taste for Life, May 2012
“Many diets seem to stress the foods you must avoid, not the ones you can enjoy. Not so with gourmet baker and cooking instructor Susan O’Brien’s latest cookbook…Helpful information on vegan and gluten-free diets is included, such as foods to avoid, recommended pantry items, and more.”

Midwest Book Review, May 2012“Any gluten-free cookbook collection will find this a winner.” Portland Book Review, 5/31/12“The recipes are logically and well-written, easy to follow, and mostly use ingredients available in well stocked health food stores…The index is well cross-referenced and very good.”

Delicious Living (website), ““7 Great Gluten-Free Cookbooks of 2012,” 12/20/12
“Two hot diets combined into one accessible cookbook…the useful categories—breakfast, snacks and parties, kids favorites, soups and salads, family classics, ethnic favorites, and delightful desserts—make this a good choice for simple, tasty, and healthy gluten-free solutions all day long.”
