I’m really baffled by this book. I don’t know what to make of it at all. It’s just really weird. The premise seems to be that vegans all live off seitan, tofu and tempeh and need lots of recipes full of other ingredients. Well, I don’t, but obviously I don’t mind the idea. There’s certainly nothing alternative about it though! And there just doesn’t seem to be all that much to eat in the book. Well its got lots of recipes in, but few of them seem to be for meals. It’s also a very odd mixture of Indian food scattered with other foods, and some are really easy pasta dishes next to dishes with loads of ingredients. Some of the recipes have a very short introduction and instructions, whereas others ramble on for pages. It’s almost like its a collection of recipes written by about five different people! I’m not saying that there aren’t decent looking recipes in it, because there are, especially the Indian ones, but it’s quite hard to get into and crack on with. It looks like it’s currently being republished, so I don’t know if anything will change in the new version.
Any recommendations people?
