Vegan Cooking

 

How It All Vegan! : Irresistible Recipes for an Animal-Free Diet by Tanya Barnard and Sara Kramer is a fun, kind and just plain wonderful cookbook. There is a lot of interest in Veganism right now, folks have many questions and concerns whether their nutritional needs will be met with a Vegan diet, well this book does a great job of addressing these valid concerns and is a heck of a cookbook to boot! Step into this book with an open mind and one will come out preparing some of the most scrumptious, healthiest meals a non-meat eater can experience!

I know many of you are thinking the Dish has jumped into the deep end of the casserole pan, but I tell you these vegan recipes are delicious. With the recipe’s wholesome qualities glaring me in the face I knew there was only one choice in this Vegan cookbook for me: the “Garden Medley Vegetable Stew”! The recipe suggests that one throw in whatever vegetables one has in the fridge, and I did. The recipe also called for a butternut squash repeating a butternut squash, don’t get me wrong I love butternut squash, it’s just that they are very difficult to cut. After the squash cutting the concocting of the stew went well, and after about 55 minutes of simmering  I turned the heat off and let the stew rest for about 15 minutes, then chowed down on  very, very good stew This is a great cookbook even for the non-vegans, just cook something from this book and enjoy life!
