A caveat -- this is a review from a (current) non-vegan. This is a very useful book, and I find myself picking it up every once in a while for the salad dressings or the tables on cooking grains and beans. Still, the heroic lengths to which she goes in order to replace meat and dairy products with "stedda" products (stedda=instead of) struck me as kind of funny sometimes. There are plenty of good vegan options out there, without necessitating hours and HOURS of preparation. The time and cost exp [...]
I practically lived on this book in the late 90's, but was without it for awhile when I moved and changed roomates. I was ecstatic to find it again, finally (I don't think it's in print) at Twice Sold Tales in Seattle. This is a big book of basics (it replaced my Better Homes when I turned Vegan). There is comfort food and nutrition information. The recipes are both creative and easy, and comprised of easy-to-find ingredients. This was the book that taught me how to prepare tofu that is flavorfu [...]
I am getting this book for friends and family for Christmas this year! The recipes are so awesome and it's jam-packed with information, not just on how, but why these recipes are good for you. Right down to the vitamins and protein. It has two pages of tofu marinades! It is a great tool for education and I can confidently say the dolma recipe will be a hit. It is a vegan cookbook in vegetarian clothing. It makes the vegan diet look infinitely more attainable and even simple. Why didn't I read th [...]
This book introduced me to using tofu in so many ways that were, I thought, unusual; tofu tacos, scrambler, the "steddas" (instead of chicken salad, tuna, egg) some of which I tried and didn't like. The book taught me how to make nut milks, which I appreciated! This cookbook uses a lot of oil which I use sparingly.It includes good ideas for switching from meat and dairy products, basic shopping lists. It's just not my favorite cookbook.
Answers the question, what do I do with tofu?As with the others, really delicous salads, smoothies, and other vegan meals (though they do mention that you can always use the animal products instead of the vegetarian substitutes (eggs instead of replacer)).A few weird ingredients (or at least ones that I don't know where to find), which stops it from being perfect.
Good Food that is good for you. Fit for Life is the best recipe book I have found that can bring you to new and healthier diet in a tasty way. Especially for people who need to change their diet drastically and are not gourmet chefs.
Thank you so much for the very thoughtful recommendation, Q! I look forward to trying this one! :-)
The best part about this book was the recipe for oven-baked potatoes, but no matter what you do, you will NEVER make tofu taste like fishegads!
I've owned this book for so many years and I keep going back to it for the very creative smoothies.
This book is a must for all Vegans!
