La construction de ce livre par les schémas des substitutions est particulièrement judicieuse mais jamais ennuyeuse, c'est une aide condensée, claire et concise.
Les recettes sont le fruit d'une imagination gourmande, équilibrées par le choix des ingrédients, des épices toujours parfaitement dosées, le Berry Suisse Bircher Muesli fait un petit-déjeuner coloré et nourrissant, la Pear and Cauliflower Curry est un voyage dans les saveurs, la Lemon Tart in Twisted Graham Cracker Crust est le dessert d'un grand pâtissier. J'aime servir la Basic Soymilk Mayo avec mes plats de crudités, faire le Basic Peanut Milk pour la confection des Pulp not fiction Muffins, le Banana Chutney pour le Banana Chutney Quick Bread.
En résumé, ce livre, comme le 500 vegan recipes, ne s'empoussiérera pas sur une étagère, mais risquera plutôt d'être taché de chocolat, de cannelle, de curry.........
Seul reproche, que je trouve assez important : je ne comprends pas ce besoin de devoir préparer un plat qui rappelle de la viande ou des saveurs que l'on a choisi d'abandonner pour des raisons de santé et d'éthique... Bien que le livre propose des alternatives intéressantes, beaucoup de recettes veulent singer la viande, en apparence, en texture et en goût, ce qui résulte parfois en des recettes remplies d'ingrédients et de chipotages... J'aime cuisiner, mais je sais apprécier le savoir-faire des plats comprenant des ingrédients simples mais complets. Bien que les recettes soient vraiment alléchantes et très goutues on va parfois chercher midi à 14 h...
Je recommande néanmoins ce livre à qui cherche des alternatives et une cuisine plus saine, il est une véritable mine d'idées !

The realization that I needed help subbing things started with a recipe for burgers. Vegetarian burgers? No problem. Then after my husband announced his desire to go vegan, he bought some ready-made vegan burgers. While they were tolerable, I'd rather make my own. I'm a DIY kinda girl. And then it hit me... OH CRAP!!! EGGS!!! HOW DO I BIND IT ALL TOGETHER?! And that got me thinking even more... what am I to use for leavening in baked goods in place of eggs? What about moisture? While I knew there were vegan egg substitutes out there, mixed starches can't work for every way one would use eggs. I knew there had to be a way to do it yourself, and different applications for different types of subs. And considering I can't use dairy like yogurt or sour cream to sub for eggs, I was pretty desperate for answers. This book gives them to you. It explains which substitutes work best for each application, and lists plenty of them. It also gives some recipes and ideas for making the substitutions yourself. Now THAT is MY KINDA BOOK! Making my own "sorta yogurt" with my choice of "milk"? Awesome. I can use that in place of eggs in baked goods! Mixing flax seeds and water to sub for eggs? It'll replace your egg, AND it happens to be a great way to get your omega-3s (normally consumed in fish by most people)! I'm looking forward to find my own ways of veganizing foods I already know and love with the information this book has given me.
I'm NOT a fan of store-bought pre-packaged foods. I refuse to subsist on ready-made vegan alternatives, or constantly stuff myself with soy products. Once in a while, okay. While a vegan diet is very healthy, I feel it isn't if you're eating prepared foods all the time, or have a diet consisting mainly of soy. I liked tofu and soy milk even as an omnivore, but I certainly don't want it in everything I eat. Not only do I feel that overloading on any one food type can cause you to miss vital nutrients it may lack, but I'm wary of soy because I believe GMOs to be dangerous, especially when eaten so often. This book gives plenty of alternatives so that I'm not constantly stuck with soy, and there's even a section specifically on substituting soy. Fantastic. As a nice bonus, it also has a gluten substitute section as well. While I don't NEED that, it's handy for new ideas and broadening my horizons, and of course, escaping the ever-present WHEAT... another food we consume often. Example: I knew of Amaranth and Quinoa, but wasn't aware they were made into flours. Can't wait to try them. And COCONUT flour? I never knew such a thing COULD exist.
I have no complaints about the organization of recipes. The recipes may be useful (and some sound mouth-watering), but I feel the recipes aren't the main purpose. I almost never follow recipes anyway, but use them as mere guidelines or a source of ideas. I will try some of these recipes, but I'll likely alter them as well. For me, this book is a wealth of information, and a fantastic resource. Anyone else trying to make the transition to vegan or accommodate vegan friends/family will find this useful.
Also worth mentioning: This book also lists coconut oil as a substitute for butter/margarine or shortening, which was a pleasant surprise. I was a big fan of coconut oil even as an omnivore, and was perturbed at not seeing it mentioned in the other vegan cookbooks I just purchased! Coconut oil has been made out to be evil, (even by meat-eaters, oddly enough) because of saturated fat. Really? Saturated fat is not the enemy, cholesterol and trans fats are. Coconut oil has neither of these. Hydrogenated oils? No thank you. Constantly using even non-hydrogenated oils somehow solidified with various thickeners and starches by unknown means and alteration? Thanks, but no. While these things might be vegan, I'd rather not put more altered food into my body. I'm glad there's at least ONE vegan cookbook that mentions coconut oil. :)
I have been a vegan for 12+ years, so I really wasn't all that interested in how to substitute things in recipes. I was interested in the recipes, and they don't disappoint! The Cheesy No Cook Sauce is worth the cost of the book alone! Everything I have tried so far has been delicious. And, even though I have been a vegan for a while, I still read the "substitutions" guides with interest and was reminded of and learned a few things, so experienced vegans shouldn't discount the book because they think they have been there done that. This book is perfect for both newbies AND experienced vegans alike!
