Help! There's a Vegan Coming For Dinner!

As the traditional turkey-feast provider for Thanksgiving, I was concerned that my vegan daughter be able to enjoy the feast as well. So I tried several recipes from this appealing cookbook. Nut Roast with Herb Stuffing and Onion Gravy: my daughter pronounced it delicious (and she cooks vegan a lot). And, Pumpkin Pie with a Pecan Base: everyone, vegan and non alike, found it scrumptious...especially topped with the Coconut Cream (a decadent topping which might be just a little too easy to whip up). That is my new favourite pumpkin pie recipe, and I'm not vegan (yet). Karen's cookbook is easy and enjoyable to read and follow, and very practical about handy vegan ingredients (e.g., cornstarch, Bisto). Takes the intimidation factor way down! (


First of all, I am definitely not a vegan - but my best friend is. I have hesitated to invite her to dinner as I could never think of anything to serve her. Thanks to this book I have a deeper understanding of what it means to be a vegan and what hidden ingredients to watch out for when cooking for one. The recipes are easy to follow and I have most of the ingredients in my pantry. My family really like The "Easiest Curry Ever" although I confess I did add chicken to it. This is an entertaining read and a great cookbook - and not just for Vegans. (


What a fabulous cookbook! It is entertaining, engaging, informative and above all - do-able.
Karen writes in a very easy, fun way and makes you want to read more. Her approach to cooking and shopping is so appreciated.
For years I had been considering becoming a vegetarian, and I can confidently say that this cookbook has been a catalyst for my decision to pursue a more vegetarian diet.
I was afraid there would not be enough recipes out there. I was so wrong! I love the way that she very clearly demonstrated the difference between the different types of tofu. That was really helpful.
The book is so great that I bought it for a friend of mine who is a nutritionist, and she loves it too. (


A wonderful cookbook for both vegans and non-vegans!! Simple, easy and absolutely delicious! I am not vegan but I have tried some of the recipes and it certainly made me a believer that vegetarian meals can be truly flavorful and you don't even miss the meat! (


I have this book, and have made a few dishes from it, as I am not actually a vegan. My favourite is the chili recipe. Very simple, and very tasty. Even if you don't follow a vegan diet, we could all do with eating a lot less meat than we do and Karen Jennings gives you plenty of choices. (


I hated the cover and so didn't pick it up ...  FORTUNATELY, however, it was recommended to me, and the recipes inside are fantastic! Really good stuff in here, and if you've are vegan/know vegans, you won't need to run out and buy hard-to-find ingredients. Really good stuff. (



Help! There's a Vegan Coming for Dinner: Japanese Style

Lots of delicious recipes, and all super easy even for someone who's never cooked Japanese food before! I especially enjoyed the braised tofu and the curried noodles (
