I haven't seen it yet. Are there lots of pictures? What kind of ingredients do they tend to use? I'm looking for a good cookbook, but I'm very put off by not seeing what I'm about to make (that's actually the only reason I haven't tried anything off the recipe boards here) and recipes that use excessive amounts of unusual ingredients.

Unfortunately there are not a ton of photos in the book. You can, however, find a lot of photos from the testers here and on the Post Punk Kitchen Forums.



If you're only going to have a handful of vegan cookbooks, this should be one of them. It gives really basic but inspired recipes that you can make on weeknights. I made some sauted bokchoy a few nights ago that took about 5 minutes and only used about 6 ingredients-- and that includes a garnish. It was delicious. We ate every bite.

I'm dying for a copy of this book, I already have Vegan with a Vengeance (also by Isa) and I use it all the time. I'm sure Veganomicon will live up to my expectations.

i may buy this book today and start cooking more vegan/veggie for my boy.



last year when i was still vegan (went veg during school cos the options in the dining halls were really really really beyond nothing to eat each night limiting... and i had no time to microwave, i did exhaust all my options before choosing) he would eat vegan tacos at my house made with boca crumbles and tvp, and he ate vegan lasagna.. so i'm gonna flip through it and see what i can make that he'll eat and prolly buy it

I was soooooo close to buying this cookbook yesterday! But it is the beginning of the month and I still have bills to pay. So I forced myself not to. er. I was being good.

Just got my copy about an hour ago. I'm massively impressed from just a cursory thumb-through. I'll post more later when I have some time. The chickpea cutlets on page 133 that lunatilian mentioned immediately went to the top of my must-try-this-out list. Bet those would be good with some marinara sauce and sautéed Portobellos on top. I’m even impressed with the binding! This may become my most-used book very soon.

I asked my mom to order it for me so I can have it when I go home for the holidays...I'm dying to try it!! The chickpea cutlets sound amazing (and I've heard nothing but rave reviews) and I can't wait to try some of the cookie recipes!

The thing that clinched it for me was the fact that there were 29 reviews of the book on amazon, and all 29 gave the book 5 stars. You very rarely see that.

Not reallyhardly any at all. Who needs it, thoughit would have just doubled or tripled the price of the book.

I've only tried out two recipes so far. My fiancé and I adore the cholent (page 182). I tried out the autumn latkes (53) and they were pretty good. Very rich--not the best breakfast choice!



Tonight I'll try making Potato and Kale Enchiladas with Roasted Chile Sauce (162) (once I get the tortillas) and pairing it with the Mexican Millet (118).

Just picked it up. It was only in hardcover, kind of pricey.

$18 on Amazon. Not too bad. Then again, my mommy sent me a get well amazon gift certificate so it didn't actually cost me anything.



I bought myself Vegan with a Vengeance a few years ago and I must have had it for about a year before I actually cooked anything out of it. I've got plans for a bunch of things in V'con as soon as I'm well enough to eat normally again!

I'm in love with this cookbook! I've made soo many things from it so far and they have all been tastey! Spaghetti and beanballs was very good (even the kids loved it). cornmeal and blueberry pancakes, chocolate chocolate chip waffles, diner fries, Brussel sprouts coated in cornmeal with the yogurt dip...ALL was yummy! Black bean burgers last night were really good too!

I just made the chewy choc raspberry cookies and had one while it was still warm with some of the vanilla ice cream from the book



I plan on making a bunch more of the recipes in the next week once i've had a chance to go to the supermarket and get ingredients.

I still think I am the only person in the entire vegan world who doesn't have this book. Guess I'll just have to make up my OWN tasty recipes...

I'm getting this book for Christmas! I almost bought it at Borders, but knew I could get it on Amazon for much cheaper. Now, my bf is buying it for me! Flipping through, the pictures made me hungry. That says a lot considering I had just come from El Torito and I was FULL.
