Unlike Horn’s and Mayer’s previous works (VBQ; The Ultimate Vegan Breakfast Book), this one abandons the single theme concept and instead provides a primer for the new vegan or generalists interested in more plant-based meals. For advice about how to shop frugally for vegetables and pantry staples, time-saving food prep equipment, and the ethics of food waste and choice, this resource is a helpful guide. The flow is easy to follow: Breakfast, snacks, quick meals, and desserts. Recipes are labeled “comfort food,” “balanced,” and “light” to denote overall feel rather than caloric content. As in Horn’s and Mayer’s other books, the spreads and condiments shine; these include a tofu feta and an oyster mushroom tapenade. Flavors are global, borrowing spices and ingredients from world cuisines. This is not an attempt to re-create popular non-vegan dishes, but rather a rethinking of what plants offer that is satisfying and unique.
VERDICT New and longstanding vegan cooks and plant-focused generalists will appreciate the emphasis on variety and generally simple preparations.
