Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. It is my single favourite vegan cookbook; it completely changed the way I thought about vegan food and vegan cooking. My cupcakes improved - they are way better using the recipes out of this book than they ever were using milk and eggs. They're so delicious! The instructions are really clear and easy to follow, and it's full of mouth-watering pictures too. I usually just make the basic chocolate or vanilla recipes, with one of the incredible buttercreams, but I've also made a few others (the lemon ones and the chocolate/vanilla swirl ones both went fairly well). The front has some handy baking tips, as well as cupcake troubleshooting suggestions to help you improve on a dodgy batch. I cannot recommend this book enough, I really can't.
I have it! I have only tried two recipes from it, but I love both of them. I've made the Jerk Asparagus and Mango BBQ Beans. Both were delicious! My asparagus-hating husband even likes and requests the Jerk Asparagus.Going to ask for Appetite For Reduction for Christmas. Does anyone have it/like it?
I don't have any of these, but I have Fast Fresh and Fabulous and another one I forget by Elliot Rose (plus some of her recipes from vegetarian cooking magazines) and I really love her recipes, they're all really tasty (that I've made of course) and some of my favourite dishes are hers. Her vegetarian books have 90% vegan/veganisable recipes, including vegan baking, so they are really good for vegans even though there are a few non vegan recipes.I've seen someone selling the following and was wondering if any of you guys had them and what you thought of them. ...
I think I might have to pick this one up.In terms of more overall cooking books, my absolute favourite is Chloe's Kitchen.
The 'weirdest' ingredient is nutritional yeast, which isn't as readily available in the UK. Everything else can be bought at a regular supermarket. The recipes themselves are so easy to follow, and tend to turn out perfectly first time. Most of them don't even require much preparation or effort. I absolutely love the soups, the mac 'n' cheese recipe, the chinese takeaway style stir fry, and the falafel burgers - all relatively easy to make, and SO TASTY. You could serve pretty much any meal in there to an omni without complaint (which I do regularly - even my mum will happily eat anything I prepare from this book and ask for seconds).
This book is on my Awesombooks.com wish list. Could you give me a quick summary of the book please ?I don't have any of these, but I have Fast Fresh and Fabulous and another one I forget by Elliot Rose (plus some of her recipes from vegetarian cooking magazines) and I really love her recipes, they're all really tasty (that I've made of course) and some of my favourite dishes are hers.

I really dislike Vegan with a Vengance, I never use it except for a cookie recipe, but I think that's because I don't like the american recipes rather than a problem with the cookbook itself. I also rarely rarely cook with faux meat/tofu/seiten/faux cheese and I seem to remember lots of these too.
VCTOTW/VCTOYCJ and the pie one are really good, and always produce great results... can't say enough good things about these ones actually, they're just so reliable and tasty.
The Asian Vegan Kitchen: This book I can't reccomend enough, ALL the recipes are downright delicious.
I've got loads and loads of cookbooks... but I can't think of them off the top of my head... lots of them are old ones I find in charity shops and I pick them up cheap for just a handful of recipes, I also have lots from cooking magazines too. Most aren't 100% vegan though. Maybe I'll have a look tomorrow and review a few
You could easily substitue Marmite with Vegemite.I actually used Rose Elliot's gravy for my christmas lentil nut loaf last year. It was nice. But as I have mentioned before it requires marmite, which is a sadly rare product.
I have 2 of isa/terry s books which I use a lot. I also like Nicola Graimes cooking but her books are vegetarian rather than vegan. Still I use her book a lot, has a number of nice vegan recipes. Easy vegan is a nice small book, available in the UK. They have a nice series of veg*n bookes out.
