Veganish: The Omnivore’s Guide to Plant-Based Cooking

We rated this book:


Veganish is the perfect guide for meat-eaters who want to cook for vegetarian or vegan friends, or for those who want to ease into a plant-based lifestyle themselves. The book offers a variety of sauces, dressings, soups, veggie dishes and desserts that can be thrown together with minimal time and effort, and very few exotic ingredients. Veganism doesn’t have to be difficult.

The best part about Veganish is the “follow your heart” recipes. Burgers, enchiladas, muffins and salad dressings all have a “follow your heart” variation in the book. The recipe itself is a framework, suggesting various options for ingredients to include, but doesn’t offer strict instructions for a final product. These non-recipe recipes would be helpful for the nights when you’re uninspired in the kitchen, or you have a fridge full of leftovers.

The only thing missing from Veganish is food pictures, but with as many variations on one recipe as the book offers, pictures would not provide an accurate frame of reference for how a dish is supposed to look.

Veganish, overall, has calm, informative and nonjudgmental commentary on America’s reliance on animal-based foods. It’s a good addition to anyone’s culinary library.
