Vegan Cooks BibleAs a non-vegan I thought I might not be too excited about a cookbook called The Vegan Cook’s Bible.

I have to say though that the book has won me over.

Whether you are a vegan, a vegetarian or just someone who likes interesting recipes, this is really a great cookbook. I have found several wonderful recipes that I know I am going to try out.

There are 250 recipes in this cookbook and they really do use a rainbow of natural foods. There is a wide range of food combinations offered and as well as lots of ideas for preparation.

What makes this book extra special is the information Pat Crocker provides about the health benefits of 150 fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains, nuts, soy foods, sea vegetables, herbs and flavorings, with data on their healing actions, uses and storage. That information is really helpful in preparing meals that will have a positive impact on our health.

The combination of great tasting recipes and the ingredient health information makes this a great cookbook for anyone interested in healthy eating, whether you are a vegetarian or not.

Some of the featured recipes in The Vegan Cook’s Bible are:

  • Grilled Mediterranean Vegetable and Lentil Salad
  • Gingered Carrot and Turnip Puree
  • Green Bean, Pecan and Pomegranate Salad
  • Pan-seared Artichokes with Pomegranate Molasses
  • Mushroom-stuffed Fennel and Red Peppers
  • Rice with Red Curry Cauliflower
  • Mango Pineapple Mocktail
  • Open-Face Black Bean Tostadas
  • Succotash and Corn Dumplings

Here are two reviews of this cookbook from Amazon.com buyers:

From Sarah R:
Fantastic!
I get the impression that many of my fellow reviewers have not actually used this book. I’ve made about twenty of the recipes, so I can say with certainty that this book is amazing.

Everything I’ve made from this book has been absolutely delicious. Crocker’s commitment to using whole foods makes the book a rare treasure. For example, the vast majority of the recipes are gluten-free. The book is also a masterpiece of indexing. Want to use lots of spinach this week, because it’s in season? The book lists every recipe that uses spinach in the index.

While I did find it odd that the author mentioned fish and honey in the INTRODUCTION, the recipes themselves are vegan, balanced, and delicious. (Note: in the new version of the cookbook, there is NO reference to fish or honey in the introduction as part of a vegan diet).

So if you’re looking for a great cookbook, look no further. If the politics of veganism are more important to you than the practice, this book is evidently not for you.

In reading all the hysteria surrounding this book by strict vegans I have to laugh. As someone who does not particularly like vegetables or vegetarian and vegan diets, I found this book incredibly accessible for those of us who are non-practicing. The recipes are easy to follow and incredibly healthly. There was a great variety of vegetable and proteins to choose from and I love Pat’s creativity. I strongly recommend this book for ANYONE who likes to eat healthy meals. And if you are a strict vegan, look past some of Pat’s suggestions that you don’t like and appreciate the recipes that are there.
