Quick & Easy Vegan Comfort Food: 65 Everyday Meal Ideas for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner with Over 150 Great-Tasting, Down-Home Recipes

A born food-lover, raised in California on “the best Mexican food in the country” and her father’s “traditional Southern soul food,” Alicia C. Simpson couldn’t imagine giving up her favorite dishes to become vegan. Animal-free food might be healthier, but could it match the tastes of home—like fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, or a bowl of chili? Three years after Alicia took the vegan plunge, Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food answers that question with a resounding “yes!”

    This is one of the top five cookbooks I plan on rescuing in case of house fire. Just kidding, but I would immediately go out and get it again! Buy this book — it’s worth it just for the mac and cheeze, orange chick’n, and buffalo bites recipes. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Did I mention the mac and cheeze? It’s not a nutritional yeast sauce! It’s incredible!

    This book has a good range of simple idea-type recipes — as in, recipes you can really put together quickly and throw in your own substitutions — plus more still-easy-but-complex-in-flavor recipes for the scratch cook. Oh and I can’t say enough about the barbecue sauce, too. I’m picky picky picky about BBQ sauce and the one in this book plus the one in Veganomicon are to live for.

    This is my first attempt to start reviewing some of the zillions of cookbooks I own. Happy cooking!

    I was really disappointed by this book! I read a lot of great reviews, but when I got around to cooking with it myself, I found most of the recipes to be overly simplistic. There are some gems in here, to be sure, but I don’t think the author really had enough recipes to justify a whole cookbook, so she started throwing in some real no brainers. There’s a recipe for “dinner salad” that just lists 5 or 6 basic salad ingredients (seriously?). “Mini Pizza’s” are just english muffins, pizza sauce, fake meat & fake cheese. There are probably 15 recipes like that… super duper basic things that anyone can think up on their own.

    Another concern was the use of processed food items. Far too many recipes relied on expensive substitutes like fake meat and cheese. She even calls for specific brands at times, one of which she recommends ordering from the internet. I’m more interested in cooking with ingredients I can easily access for a reasonable price.

    If you are JUST STARTING OUT as a vegan and cook, this book might be helpful for you. If you are a seasoned vegan, pass this one by. Veganomicon is far superior!

    With some books you have to buy special food items to make anything. This book makes it possible to find the ingredients in your pantry. Very easy!
