By incorporating beans into other familiar dishes, this book helps to show how you can make your favorites more healthy without sacrificing taste. For instance: if you're trying to avoid GMO laden corn chips, there's a recipe for Chickpea Chips. If you'd like to satisfy a sweet tooth with more protein and less fat, there's a great recipe for brownies made with black beans. If you want to reduce your consumption of red meat, there are recipes for Italian meatballs made with cannellini beans and black bean burgers or a "meatloaf" among others.
I also like that the book is written in a friendly, easygoing and uncomplicated way that's a joy to read and easy to follow. It projects a sense of appreciation that we all have different tastes and has flexible alternatives to fit your lifestyle so you can prepare the recipes your way or follow it verbatim. There are quick conversions in the back as well, just before the index.
I'd like to thank the author for putting together such a well thought out book and my friend for gifting it to me. I'm sure I'll get a lot of use. I highly recommend it.
However I strongly recommend the black bean brownies, they tasted better than any of the regular brownies I've ever eaten. This is a great book for vegans and non-vegans alike!
I like vegan food that looks and tastes like what it is - not tofu or seitan masquerading as the-chicken-or-steak-that-you-miss so much - and this book provides this (although both tofu and seitan are used in a few recipes). As my dinner guest remarked of the Lentil Loaf, served as suggested with mashed potatoes and collard greens, "This is real food!" as are the rest of the recipes.
The book is a low-budget production and disappointingly has no pictures but it is so much more rewarding that the tonier vegan cookbooks with contrived combinations that it still deserves five stars.
I usually find that vegetarian books consists of easy recipes like black bean soup, vegetarian chili and deserts. Which, this one does have, however it also has so much more. I was never expecting a recipe on how to make my own almond milk, or how to make dairy free sour cream.
First I tried the black bean & sweet potato queso-less-dilla with tofu sour cream and really enjoyed it. I will admit that I was missing the cheese in it, but the sweet potato does add a density and slight creaminess to it that imitates cheese pretty well. The tofu sour cream, although a little funky tasting by itself, was awesome when mixed with homemade salsa. I didn't really notice that it wasn't real sour cream.
The next recipe I tried was the Italian "meat" balls. The meatballs smelled and tasted really good in all their white bean glory. You mix a lot of ingredients into the white beans like you would a real meatball. Now, they definitely didn't taste like meatballs but they did have a lot of great flavor and in the end were delicious with the pasta. My one and only complaint was that my meatballs fell apart and were pretty mushy even though I left them in the oven another 15 minutes. They just didn't hold up like they should've.
The last recipe I tried, and by far my favorite, was the lentil loaf. I grew up on my grandpa's meatloaf. So this was the true test for me. I will admit I was pretty skeptical about the recipe. It seemed legit with all the ingredients put in. There's seasonings, onion, bell pepper, bread crumbs, ketchup, just about everything goes into this. No where in the recipe does it say to mash the lentils but I did. I found that I wanted more of "ground meat" appearance and consistency, and that was the best decision I made. Not only did the loaf, at quick glance, look like meatloaf but it was delicious. I paired it with mashed potatoes and corn, Just like my grandpa would, and I was taken back in time to my childhood. Sure, I could tell it wasn't ground beef, however, it was so darn close to it and so amazingly delicious that the slight taste difference didn't even register.
If I had someone who was looking to take a step away from meat and dairy, I would definitely recommend this book to them. Even though I haven't tried the desert recipes yet, I do plan on continuing my journey through this book. I just couldn't wait anymore to share my review.
