Veganomicon, The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook, by Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero
Veganomicon is the ultimate vegan cookbook for anyone "tip-toeing" around becoming a vegan or cooking "meatless Mondays". Each recipe is easy to follow and contains ingredients that most pantries will find stocked. Simply add a few fresh items and you'll create an excellent vegan meal with little effort.
This is a vegan cookbook that I give as a gift to get friends started toward a vegan way of meal planning. Ms. Moskowitz and Ms. Romero provide sound teachings and instructions for creating a vegan kitchen along with tasteful homecooked menus.
There just isn't enough room to list all my favorite recipes from Veganomicon, but here are a few: Appetizers: Spicy Tempeh Nori Rolls Brunch: Crepes: Savory and Sweet, Buckwheat or Wheat Dinners: Caesar Salad with Roasted Garlic Croutons Dinner: Potato and Kale Enchiladas with Roasted Chile Sauce Dinner: Seiten Piccata with Olives and Green Beans Mix and Match: Simple Seiten
About the Authors
Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero are the authors of Veganomicon, The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook.
This is how Isa and Terry describe Veganomicon: "Over 250 of our favoritest vegan recipes with absolutely no “soy cheese” this or “store bought veggie burgers” that. Many of the recipes were written for every day meals, in hopes that you won’t even need to look at the recipe after making it a few times. The kind of chow you can whip up any night of the week with your pantry staples and some seasonal produce. But you can also trust it when you’re looking for an extravagant spread to impress, say, your in-laws, or the mayor of your town when she stops by."
"During the course of developing recipes we kept coming back to this phrase: Recipes you wish you’d grown up with. These aren’t necessarily restaurant masterpieces, although we bet many of the recipes will rival that of the $26 entree at many vegan eateries. It’s real and honest home cooking, with a splash of panache that only two food obsessed chicks could arrive at. These recipes were not born from airy-fairy, spotless brushed stainless steel made for TV kitchens. The recipes that await you in the deepest, darkest inner sanctum of this book were created by two women who cook, live and eat in real, urban kitchens. This is food made while chatting with significant-others, gossiping with friends and shooing nosy pets off the counter-tops. In other words, this is kind of food you make and eat while life happens."
