In this expanded edition of the highly popular original, Jo Stepaniak has retained the book's imaginative concepts and down-home appeal, while broadening many sections to cover a vast wealth of alternatives for every animal-based food under the sun. From homemade veggie "meats" and uncheeses to scrumptious egg and dairy substitutes, Vegan Vittles fills the whole table, and does so simply, tastefully, and creatively. Written in conjunction with staff members of Farm Sanctuary, North America's oldest and largest farmed animal sanctuary and advocacy organization, Vegan Vittles provides valuable and timely information about modern "food animal" production, as well as constructive and effective actions that readers can take on behalf of these animals. The recipes are without pretense, ranging from hearty, home-style American, to ethnic and elegant. With over 100 exciting new recipes and clear, detailed instructions, Vegan Vittles is sure to inspire compassionate cooks of all ages, regardless of their comfort level in the kitchen.

Perfect for New Vegans

User Review  - mommyswami -

This was my first vegan cookbook 15 years ago. It was the perfect cookbook for a beginning vegan. Most of my recipes now build on what I learned in this book including making homemade seitan and a vegan chicken noodle soup that my family adores. Very informative. A mustbuy. Read full review

I love that this book is so full of information.. Alternatives to dairy, Alternatives to Eggs, Ingredients that may be new to you, Getting started are all chapters in the beginning of the book. Also covered is how you can help to improve the life of farm animals. Oh, did I mention it is written in conjunction with Farm Sanctuary? Yep, and I love that the book has stories through out the book about animals they have saved and are now living at the "Farm".
There are lots of different types of recipes in here and most don't use ingredients that I don't already have in my house- so that is awesome. I hate getting a cookbook and finding that I don't have a single thing in my house to complete any of the recipes.. Not so with this book!
We have already tried the Gee Whiz Spread with great success and the Barbecue Buffalo Zings.. Yummy. This cookbook has recipes that anyone would like whether or not they are vegan. So I believe it is a great resource to all cooks out there. Do you have family members who are not vegan? This is the book to get them. You can tell them it is so they have recipes to cook when you come over but really they will love it too!
