I also found it endearing that the first recipe I flicked to (in the dessert chapter of course) was a cookie recipe containing one and a half cups of powdered sugar and a cup of vegan margarine. So unapologetic and indulgent!
I think the premise of this epic cookbook - that you can make anything vegan - is admirable, even if it is a little heavy on the faux meat and cheese. I only wish that more of the cool vegan products like Daiya cheese were available in Australia.
I love the tone in which the book is written - approachable, cheeky and fun.
Here are a few things I've made so far:
|Chocolate Orange Cashew Cheesecake|
|Curry Spinach and Lentil Pilaf|
|Vegan Chicken Lettuce Rolls|
|Zucchini Apple Bread|
Theresa at the Tropical Vegan has also blogged about this book here and here.
I'm looking forward to making some of the indulgent dishes from the "Holiday Favourites" section of this book this Christmas!
