Availability: Ready to download

Being vegan doesn't have to mean living off kale and quinoa, or spending your money on fancy and expensive ingredients. And it definitely doesn't have to mean feeling limited for choices of what to eat! What if "vegan food" could mean cheesy nachos and pizza, hearty burritos, gooey spinach and artichoke dip, decadent chocolate cake or even creme brulee? Well, it can. In Fu Being vegan doesn't have to mean living off kale and quinoa, or spending your money on fancy and expensive ingredients.

    I love the author's website (https://itdoesnttastelikechicken.com/), so it's no surprise that I love the book as well! Many of the recipes in the cookbook are also on the website, but I enjoy owning them in cookbook format so I'm not constantly having to look things up on a computer. The cookbook is very visually appealing, and every recipe is well photographed. The recipes appeal strongly to kids, families, and people who have maybe just gone vegan and just want something "normal."

Carrot hot dogs, tofu BLTs, spaghetti, pizza, and chocolate chip cookies can all be found here. I have cooked and enjoyed several recipes from this book. So far, all of them have been popular with the family. We try to eat more WFPB than vegan, and if you're an experienced WFPB cook, you should be able to adapt most of these recipes to be WFPB (except perhaps the desserts).

    I think this book is ingenious. The recipes are simple, and do not disappoint in either taste or nutritional value. She really shows you how easy and fast it actually can be to make a vegan meal that is everything you want in a meal that you have to make yourself: healthy, delicious and inexpensive! As a vegan, I have several vegan cookbooks and also vegetarian ones from before. Of all of them, this is likely the first one I'd lend out to a friend who is new to meatless eating.

    One of the best vegan cookbooks I have cooked from. I loved all the photographs and how the recipes are straightforward, and delicious yet easy to prepare. The caramelized onion pizza was amazing, and the gooey mozzarella on top was the simplest cheese I have made. Also really enjoyed the waffles, dude-approved chickpea salad, tomato soup, and veggie skewers.

    Thinking of going vegan? Start here! Thinking of learning how to cook at all? Start here!! I am not much of a cook and when I decided to go vegan I knew it would be a challenge. I had bought the first Oh She Glows cookbook way back when and I found I hardly liked anything I made by her (she has a few good recipes but not enough for that price).

    Some people think that if you go Vegan, you will be missing out on many of your favorite comfort foods. Not so! This beautifully photographed and well laid out book shows you that you can still eat all of your favorites, i.e. french toast, pancakes, scrambled eggs (tofu), bacon (rice paper), cheese, ranch dressing, burgers, pot-pie, etc. The recipes are pretty straight forward with mostly readily available ingredients.

Add the word "vegan" and its basically an insta-buy for me. There are a lot of reasons to love this book. 1. Simple, no-nonsense recipes with easy to find ingredients! No weird veggies, hard to find add ins. Just good old fashioned pantry staples! 2. Weeknight friendly recipes!

One of my favorite things about this particular cookbook is how simple it is to find a quick weeknight dinner in here (that make great leftovers). It's not that this book is bringing anything groundbreaking to the table, its reminding you of all those old easy staples you love and making it easy to veganize them. Most recipes have 5-10 ingredients. 3. Something for everyone and every occasion Want a brunch worthy vegan breakfast that isn't just pancakes? Try the Overnight Cinnamon Bun French Toast Bake OR Smoky Tofu and Avocado Benedict. Hosting a party for lots of different palettes? Jalapeno poppers and spinach and artichoke dip to the rescue.

Most of her recipes have simple ingredients and are easy to follow. While some of the dishes are not as intensely flavorful or unique as some other vegan cooks, such as minimalist baker, Sam Turnbull offers quick and easy vegan recipes that are tasty. And in this busy world, sometimes that’s what you need. I am slowly working my way through different recipes, though I have looked through the entire cookbook. I have made tofu scramble and her pancakes and they are wonderfully delicious. My only critique is that she tends to reinforce diet culture throughout the book. She calls many dishes “sinfully delicious” which feeds into the good bad dichotomy of diet culture. I repeat food is not good or bad, it is just food. By labeling certain dishes as “sinful” or “guilt-free” Turnbull is playing into the lies that diet culture tells us. This, in turn, can lead to eating disorders or disordered eating habits. I know that was not her intention when writing this book, but it is important to note how language affects the way we think about food and our bodies. I appreciate how there is no calorie information for the dishes & how Turnbull isn’t featuring typical “healthy” vegan fare. If you’re interested in plant-based eating at all, I recommend giving this book a look. I will definitely be using some of these recipes once I’m back in college and need a quick, but yummy, vegan dish to eat.

I've only had her book for a few days, and I've already made her mozzarella sauce twice. If you are new to vegan cooking or a pro, this is a must need cookbook!

    We was recently lucky enough to receive a copy of ‘Fuss Free Vegan’ by by Sam Turnbull (published by Random House). We came across Sam Turnball’s blog back before Christmas when we were looking for a good vegan recipe for sugar cookies, and oh-boy, we found one.

We came across Sam Turnball’s blog back before Christmas when we were looking for a good vegan recipe for sugar cookies, and oh-boy, we found one. Our entire office was fooled by the delicious light cookies and that is where the curiosity started. While Sam’s book is almost always healthier than the general cookbook, it offers up great recipes for comfort food vegans/ lactose intolerant folks miss so much. We loved the layout of the book, without sounding pretentious, it was very aesthetically pleasing, with gorgeous text types, pictures and we love a good organised layout! There’s tips and tricks, pantry must haves (most of these are also dried so you don’t have to worry about things going off). We also loved how most of the recipes could be changed as it mentions somewhere on the page to be more naughty or healthier. We already made some desserts so knew they would all be amazing, so we decided to go with a breakfast and lunch/dinner. We wanted to go outside our comfort zone and actually cook something we had either never done or would never think to do. First up, the tofu scramble. Something we had honestly never thought to try! On a personal note, we can’t have dairy and eggs are not really our cuppa-tea, so scrambled eggs is something we haven’t had in a long time. It was incredibly simple to make, took around 5-10 minutes and was genuinely delicious. Tofu is also a great source of calcium so we are always looking to add it to our diet whenever we can since we no longer consume dairy. We added in a few cherry tomatoes we had to use up and it really added a lovely finishing touch, Sam does recommend sundried tomatoes, so next time we make it we’re definitely going to try that! Next up, Cheesy Broccoli soup. Now, we have a confession to make. We’ve never made home-made soup… so as a challenge and also a change, we thought we’d tackle this one! Just like the scrambled Tofu, it was so much easier than we thought. You quite literally cook the ingredients and then blend. Much like the cookies, we shared this around, my parents didn’t realise no cheese was added firstly (thank you Nutritional Yeast!) and my mother said it was the best broccoli soup she had ever had. We made enough for about 10 servings, and I only had one… the rest was all eaten by family members. I actually ended up making another batch the next week and then freezing some for emergency ill-days. 100% would make again and recommend! Overall, if you’re vegan, meat eater, fussy eater… human? This is the cook book for you. Everything tastes better vegan in our opinion, we genuinely believe just cutting out certain things when you can is better than nothing and no book is better than this one. Vegan food doesn’t have to be what Pier’s Morgan makes it out to be, it’s not just raw veg thrown into a bowl, it can be better than the average comfort food and when its healthier it tastes even better. We can’t wait to make the mushroom burgers, the Mexican bowl, cinnamon buns and we are SO excited to make the vegan mozzarella mentioned. (The only thing we will mention – and it is absolutely not the fault of this book, is that cashews are so damn expensive in UK supermarkets, please comment down below or message us cheaper cashew brands, much love xxxx) So impressed, so excited. It’s honestly very refreshing to find a cookbook we can have fun with, trust to be tasty and eat guilt free. Hurrah! Thank you to Penguin Random House for so kindly sending a review copy in exchange for a honest review.

    I love this cookbook! As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, I recommend it (even though there's no nutrition facts on any of the recipes - just use your own best judgement...a lot of oil/fat means a lot of calories!). Usually vegan cooking seems so unapproachable - you need to stock up on exotic ingredients and spend hours in the kitchen. Not so with Sam Turnbull. For the purchase of a small bottle of Liquid Smoke (less than $3), I was able to make "insanely good rice paper bacon" and it's not I love this cookbook!

    I was disappointed in this. Granted, I only tried three recipes, but they weren't worth it. The hearts of palm salad sandwiches were good, but I didn't follow the recipe, just took the idea and made my own. I also tried the peanut noodle salad and the mandarin almond salad. I found both too strong tasting, and just wouldn't bother making them again. Overall, I'm pretty disillusioned with cookbooks, and am finding that I much prefer finding recipes online, where they have comments and ratings. I was disappointed in this.

    It is honestly just not that hard to veganize muffins, pizza dough, salad, sandwiches, etc. And as the vegans I cook for don't eat tofu, what I was left with out of this book were a few vegan cheese recipes. I do think this is a great book for anyone starting out on a vegan eating plan, she gives you lots of options for turning your traditional foods into something vegan.

    This is a good cookbook! Sam has a great blog, and she has created many of my go-to recipes. This would be a great cookbook for people who aren't super familiar with vegan food, and would like to recreate, as the title suggests, everyday foods. There are delicious recipes for pizzas and burgers, plus homemade cheese and dairy staples. This is a good cookbook! Sam has a great blog, and she has created many of my go-to recipes.

Drawback: it does not have a lot of nutritional value and the chewiness comes from the fact that you are eating PAPER! Yes, it is edible paper, but putting a bunch of pieces together like is called for in the recipe makes it very dense and it sits in your stomach like, well, a bunch of PAPER!

    The recipes in this book are really good. Great pictures (and a picture for every recipe) and easy to follow instructions. The only thing I don't like is that some recipes call for white flour and sugar. The recipes in this book are really good.

    This cookbook is AWESOME!!! It is a complete must-buy! I will be ordering this with my Barnes & Noble gift card! The recipes are simple, yet super tasty! I love that they don't have any weird ingredients - just regular food! The first recipe I made was the pumpkin spice pancakes. They were a total hit with the family, all of whom are not vegan in any way! Everything that followed was easy, super yummy and got rave reviews by the entire family - I have never had that happen with any other cookbook! This cookbook is AWESOME!!! It is a complete must-buy!

    Sometimes vegan cooking seems bland and uninspired. These recipes are easy and delicious! I tried the Sensational Smoky Tofu Benedict, and the B.L.T. Both were great! Look forward to trying more recipes like the mayonnaise, crepes, and waffles too.

    Lots of easy recipes for the types of things new vegans probably miss: tacos, pastas, cheesy things, pizza. Oil is used in recipes, so many recipes aren't whole-food based. Seems a little short on vegetables, with many waffle, pancake, sandwich, pizza and lots of sweets recipes.

    So many of these recipes have become staples in our house! Love the cauliflower alfredo, baked cheesecake, and ricepaper bacon to name a few. I find the recipes are easy, usually call for ingredients I have on hand, and they always turn out!

    Great beginner book for vegans. I did find an interesting recipe for vegan bacon using rice paper. I haven't tried it but just thinking about sounds interesting. There was a yummy recipe for an overnight french toast bake that looked yummy. I have a better recipe in my repertoire but seeing it reminded me to make that. Pretty pictures and some good beginner recipes. Great beginner book for vegans. I did find an interesting recipe for vegan bacon using rice paper.

    She’s my fave vegan blogger and her recipes are so good and mostly easy and I love that this book includes a menu planner. While I’ve read this book once over, I know this is one I’ll be coming back to regularly.

    I absolutely love Sam Turnbull’s blog and recipes even though I’m not vegan so I really enjoyed this book. I’m giving 4 stars because I’d prefer the recipes to have metric ingredients as in the blog. 3 cups of cabbage!? How much cabbage will I need for that?
