Notes about Recipes in this book

  • "Fronch" toast

    • louie734 on May 28, 2020

      Worked! Added cinnamon (lots) and black salt (very little). Shook the batter in a mason jar, will keep in the fridge. Score!

    • patioweather on April 09, 2018

      Omnis usually can't tell that these are vegan. Even easier to make than regular French toast if you have the ingredients.

  • Coconut heaven cupcakes

    • louie734 on June 13, 2020

      Baked as an 8" cake with extra vanilla and a touch of almond extract, omitting the shredded coconut and the frosting. Used as the base for a strawberry shortcake type dessert. Damp crumb, crunchy golden edges, very thin. At 350, done just shy of 30 minutes. First it rose, then fell to a completely flat top (would stack very well for a layer cake). Cut into wedges and stacked with strawberries n cream, coconut was barely distinguishable and overall a win, but not quite as light as I was looking for.

  • Seitan- and herb-stuffed mushrooms

    • veganamy on May 11, 2010

      I have served these several times and they are always a hit!

  • The best pumpkin muffins

    • BronwynJQM on December 02, 2010

      Hands down, the best pumpkin muffins ever, vegan or not. Thanks, Isa!

    • tiki_li on February 05, 2016

      Most amazing and most used recipe in my house!

    • Lglen on March 12, 2020

      Nice and moist and sweet enough with 2/3 cup of sugar. Will try subbing whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour next time.

  • Corn chowder

    • BronwynJQM on November 15, 2010

      This is the best corn chowder we have ever had, vegan or not. We highly recommend it.

  • Sweet potato crepes with cilantro-tamarind sauce

    • pushka on July 13, 2011

      Very nice if you have a sweet tooth but I'd try using regular potatoes or a mix next time, as I prefer more savoury.

  • Scrambled tofu

    • oddkitchen on January 10, 2013

      The greatest and best. My favorite scrambled tofu recipe. I like it better wetter, no carrots, and when smoked paprika is subbed for sweet.

  • Orecchiette with cherry tomatoes and Kalamata tapenade

    • mharriman on October 26, 2019

      I’m not vegan, but bought this book because I have guests from time to time who are, and I wanted to try out some vegan dishes. I made this as a side dish for an Italian chicken entree and my husband and I thought it was okay but I won’t repeat it. If you like tapenade and want a vegan pasta sauce that’s a bit unusual in color (dark brown) and flavor, you may love this. We like tapenade, but in this dish, we personally didn’t love it.

  • Raspberry-chocolate chip blondie bars

    • Alwaysautumn on January 12, 2016

      Absolutely stunning! Lovely sticky jam and decadent chocolate. Can't go wrong.

  • Roasted Brussels sprouts with toasted garlic

    • patioweather on April 09, 2018

      After over ten years, this is still how I usually prepare brussels sprouts. Easy, with a great balance of crunch and softness.

  • Tempeh and white bean sausage patties

    • patioweather on September 27, 2017

      These are great. I double the recipe and keep it in the fridge uncooked. In the mornings, it's easy to fry up a few patties before work.

  • Chipotle, corn, and black bean stew

    • lauriealtman on February 27, 2020

      There are a couple errors in the recipe. 1. The ingredient list includes 3 cloves garlic, but there is no indication how they should be prepped (left whole, sliced, crushed, minced, etc.). I minced mine. 2. The directions indicate that the stew should be simmered for 20 minutes, but does not indicate whether the pot should be covered or left uncovered. A later step instructs to uncover the pot. So, the 20 minute simmer should be with the pot covered.

Publishers Text

Vegans have often been misunderstood or treated with suspicion because of their beliefs. Now, this strict form of vegetarianism is attracting thousands of new adherents both young and old and it has now become socially accepted as more people learn the health risks of eating too much meat and the benefits both to themselves and the planet of a plant-based diet. "Vegan with a Vengeance" is a vegan cookbook for the 21st century. It is the creation of Isa Chandra Moskowitz, co-host of the hugely successful TV vegan cookery show in the US called "The Post Punk Kitchen". Isa's cooking philosophy embraces being kind to animals (all recipes are completely animal-product free) and your wallet - while being creative and having fun in the process. She emphasizes fresh ingredients and says that, like good music, cooking is best when it's innovative and experimental. Her inspired recipes - covering all the meals for the day are influenced by dishes from around the world that include: Asparagus and Sun-dried Tomato Frittata, Sweet Potato Hash with Five-Spice and Watercress, White Bean and Roasted Garlic Soup, Fresh mango Summer Rolls, Ginger Roasted Winter Vegetables, Cold Udon Noodles with Peanut Sauce, Raspberry and Chocolate Chip Blondie Bars and Lemon Gem Cupcakes.
