500 vegan recipes – cookbook review

500 Vegan recipes

Celine Steen & Joni Marie Newman

Kind of book?
General vegan
Beginner, intermediate, challenging?
When I first saw this book, I was really impressed how huge this boos was. 
But also with the amounts of chapters and recipes. It took me days to go through the whole book.  
One thing I learned immediately. This was a new way of vegan cooking.  
One that doesn't mind using faux-food. Even more, this book learns you how to make them.  
One thing was for sure. The vegan sky has no limits.
The looks:
Very big book.  Colorful cover.
Good points
- Many, many recipes
- Introduction to every recipe.
- Recipes well written and lots of extra explanation
- Lots of basics for faux-food.
- Very creative
Bad points
- No pictures

Success story’s: 
Thai Tofu
Mushroom lasagna
Orange carrots
Curried apple sprouts
Cinnamon apple pie bars
Sundried tomato sauce
Disco stew
Baked Eggplant Parmesan
Baked Berbere seitan
lemon-thyme quick bread 
Recipes I really want to try in the future:

Jam-Filled Soda Rolls
Cranberry Chili
Laurel and Hardy Peanut Fauxsages
Festivus Loaf
Beer rolls
Fu-ttage Chese Mini Baguettes
Orange Cappuccino Cookies
Sablés Marbrés
Scarborough Fair Cream Cheese Wontons 
Whiskey Sweet Potato Mash 
... and many, many more

  1. I’ve tried their seitan chorizo crumbles from their blog. A bit too spicy for me, but apart from that really good! And easy! So next time, I’ll adjust it a bit and make my own crumbles. This recipe is a stay on my list and I’m tempted to buy the book now 😉

    • You should buy all their books 🙂
      And now in Dutch because it’s weird to write in another language to someone who speaks your own: kan jij aan liquid smoke geraken? Ik vind het hier nergens en Amazon wil het niet verzenden.

  2. shit, nee, niet direct. het flesje dat ik heb is uit de US meegenomen. Maar, misschien hebben ze dat wel bij ISPC?

    of nog een optie: ik vraag aan enkele bandjes die hierheen komen of ze enkele flesjes willen meenemen?
