REVIEW for Short-Cut Vegan

A big thank you goes out to Deanna at HarperCollins for sending me this great Vegan cookbook!! I love it!

TITLE: Short-Cut Vegan

AUTHOR: Lorna Sass

GENRE: Cookbook

RATING: 4 (yummy!) stars

The Short-Cut Vegan appears to be a re-issued book. I am glad that HarperCollins has decided to make it available as this book is a little gem.

I have been heading more and more towards being vegan, however, as I am an extremely lazy cook, the recipes cannot take very long or be too complicated or involved - enter Short-Cut Vegan cookbook. This little cookbook is great, great, great! From its compact and convenient size, to its easy to read recipes, that are quick, fun and yum! tasty! I ended up making 7 recipes in the first few days I received it.

As mentioned, the recipes are super easy and quite fast to make and there is a very nice variety of vegan meals to select from. The Spinach with "Toasted Coconut and Black Mustard Seeds" was delish! and I loved "the Unlimited Waffle Mix" (try the Sunflower Seeds version).

The only thing I miss in this book were the pictures. There are no pictures of the "end result" which, for someone with my limited gifts in cooking, could use as a handy guideline to make sure that what I am making looks remotely like its suppose to!

Still, this is a great little cookbook.

Oh great! My daughter and I are both vegetarians, not Vegan though. We love our cheese and eggs. But this cookbook still looks great. Thanks so much for the review.

This is uncanny. I was at the library YESTERDAY and picked up a few books on Raw and vegetarian recipes! This looks perfect, as I am like you and do not like a lot of prep time or fiddling around while cooking!

Were there any dessert recipes in the book? I'm looking for vegan bookbooks with dessert recipes because I'm allergic to dairy and eggs.

I'm having computer problems right now, so I think my computer may have posted my last comment three times. If so, I'm sorry and please disregard the last two comments. Thanks.

I've been a vegan for about 20 years. Lorna Sass has written other good vegan cookbooks as well.

ANGIE: The cookbook Yes! absolutely, this book has quite a few nice (yummy sounding) dessert recipes.

Angela said...

Tina: Thanks. And sorry about the multiple posts - my computer is doing crazy things lately and I couldn't figure out if the comment had gone through or not.

I have the Short-Cut Vegetarian, but now I want this one as well. Because I don't have enough cookbooks. ;)

Angie, if you want a great dessert book try "The Joy of Vegan Baking" or "Vegan Cupcakes take over the world". They are both wonderful.
