Hot for Food Vegan Comfort Classics: 101 Recipes to Feed Your Face Reviews
While most all of these recipes sounded delish, many of them turned me off bit due to the sheer number of ingredients and the steps/time they appeared to involve. Many recipe directions were more than one page and I just don't have time for that most days. What I did enjoy - actually super enjoyed - were the vast number of sauces and dressings. They were all super easy, with few ingredients and are very versatile in their uses. I am grateful to have received an advanced copy of this book in exch ...more
Lauren is forever the vegan queen!
I follow Lauren and hotfor food on instagram and since becoming vegan I use a lot of her recipes. It is quite amazing how she has not only the food but the flavorful herbs, spices, etc to make a rather gourmet meal and at the same time appeasing. I always check the recipes in the book to add ingredients to my list before I do my shopping. Thanks Lauren for keeping is real!
This review is probably very biased since I love Lauren Toyota and I've been a subscriber of the Hot For Food Youtube channel for a long while now. Needless to say, I of course went to her book signing and got my copy signed.
I thought the photos in the book turned out beautifully and I love the variety of different recipes as well. I've made 4-5 of the recipes in the book already and they have all turned out perfectly, despite me still being somewhat inexperienced to cooking. Something that got ...more
All your favourite non-vegan classics, remastered! These recipes are fun and relatively straight-forward, although many of them require more than 1 hour to prepare, which is honestly more time than I'd like to spend in the kitchen on a weeknight. Great for weekend meals though!
Note: people with nut allergies or those who are GF may struggle with this cookbook, as there are substitutions suggested but no alternative measurements provided.
I love reading cookbooks especially vegan cookbooks and while I enjoyed looking at the recipes I found the author’s writing to be so apologetic! Own your writing, take pride in the recipes! Also cauliflower is a terrible substitute for “meat” or veggie meat, but a delicious vegetable that should be treated as a vegetable.
For many people, the idea of vegan and comfort food are seldom in the same sentence, let alone a book title. In fact, many people think of vegan as the opposite of comfort food, so Lauren Toyota’s Hot for Food Vegan Comfort Classics is a challenge to that idea. Now, for me, one of my comfort foods is roasted brussels sprouts with a bit of lemon juice or balsamic vinegar, so to me, vegan comfort food sounded interesting. I am not vegan, but I love vegetables and fruits and think we are all a litt ...more
52 Book Challenge Week 40: Vegan Comfort Classics
So cookbooks aren't really traditional fare for me or challenges like this but I'm gonna go with it. I've been a huge Hot For Food fan for years, even before I was vegan. The videos are entertaining, the food is creative and delicious, she's Canadian, and everything is great. The recipes are mostly comfort foods and vegan versions of various fast food or convenience foods.
I decided 5 recipes was a good amount to try making before marking the book ...more
