101 Vegan Recipes – Pink Ribbon Publishing

101VeganRecipesA complete meal without meat? How is this even possible?  Growing up in the country, meat and potatoes were a staple, my mom served it to us nearly every night.  Even now, I love BBQ season.  Recently I’ve been hearing the benefits of a Vegan lifestyle, but I’ve never been able to take the leap.

Convinced that a Vegan diet is bland and unexciting I’ve been unwilling to try any Vegan menu options.  When I saw the cover of “101 Vegan Recipes” I started to admit that maybe…I was wrong. The images on the cover show some exciting and colour menu options.  I had to ask myself are the recipes as delicious as they look?

“101 Vegan Recipes” offers up a recipe for everyone.  Some of the recipes called for ingredients I wasn’t familiar with (like palm hearts) , but other recipes were full of foods I was familiar with. I scanned through the recipe book and found a couple of recipes that interested me.

BarleySoupThe first recipe I tried was “Mushroom Barley Soup”.  I wasn’t sure that I’d enjoy this one, I’m used to Barley Soup made from a chicken carcass.  I chose this recipe because I had all the ingredients already in my pantry.  I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this soup as well as how simple it was to prepare. I ended up eating it for supper last night and again at lunch today.  The mushrooms were a nice touch to the meatless soup.

Brownies The second recipe I tried was the “Luscious Chocolate Brownies”. They turned out delicious. They were moist and flavourful. Even the kids ate them. Not being a Vegan, I did have to purchase a few extra items like Vegan butter and Egg substitute.

I do have a couple of criticisms of the book. It lacks consistency in the formatting.  Sometimes they will say 1/3 cup and other times they will say 1/3-cup.   I also found what I believe to be omissions or grammatical errors that made the recipes difficult to follow.  In the “Baechu Kimchi” recipe it instructs me to “Place cabbage and add the onions…”   With a little thought you can muddle through them, but an inexperienced cook may have some difficulties.  That  said, the recipes that I did try were delicious and simple to make.
