The Vegan Family Cookbook

Brian McCarthy

Now that you've become a vegan, you're learning lots of ways to prepare tofu, but you or someone you love is really starting to miss macaroni and cheese, turkey dinners, pumpkin pie and birthday cake. Maybe you and your family feel self-conscious (and hungry) at holidays, picnics, and parties. Or maybe just one person in the family is vegan, but you need to create meals that everyone will eat.

Since the day Brian McCarthy and his wife, Karen, chose a vegan diet for their family ten years ago, Chef McCarthy has created over 400 simple vegan recipes with easy-to-find ingredients for traditional favorites like biscuits, corn bread, stews, pastas, pizzas, cakes, pies, and even egg(less) nog. All the recipes come from the McCarthy home kitchen and have passed the test of many family meals. For individuals or families who are concerned about animals, the environment, or their health, mealtimes just got a whole lot easier.

Reviewed by Debra Wasserman

The Vegan Family Cookbook serves up more than 400 recipes. Many are the usual standards, such as Hummus, Lentil Soup, Potato Salad, and Red Beans and Rice.

However, Chef Brian P. McCarthy offers readers a variety of unique recipes, including Breadsticks made from pizza dough, Adzuki and Peanut Soup, Spaghetti Salad, Potato Bread Stuffing, Pumpkin Pancakes, and Cinnamon Rolls. Many of the recipes are also quite easy to prepare, using few ingredients. Please note that nutritional analyses are not provided.

Review: SB
THIS IS A GREAT all-round cookbook and I really couldn't say it any better than Lantern's blurb on the back:
"Now that you've become a vegan, you're learning lots of ways to prepare tofu, but you or someone you love is really starting to miss macaroni and cheese, pumpkin pie and birthday cake. Maybe you and your family feel self-conscious (and hungry) at holidays, picnics, and parties. Or maybe just one person in the family is vegan, but you need to create meals that everyone will eat.

I liked Chef Brian as soon as I read his acknowledgements: "Here is a quote from my younger son: 'The Broccol Cauliflower Soup is disgusting, hideous and gruesome. The worst soup I have ever tasted. No one in their right mind would like it. Its texture is terrible.' Thank you, son, for being one of the main recipe testers and for your honest opinions on my cooking. A cook often has a clouded vision of his own cooking and you were always there to speak the truth."
Strangely, I couldn't locate the infamous soup recipe anywhere in the book...
