Product description

Put the yum into your meals with more than 85 mouthwatering vegan recipes! When Lauren Ulm went vegan, she faced the typical onslaught of questions from acquaintances and more than the occasional wince from unsuspecting dinner guests. Vowing to prove that vegan food can be decadent and delicious and not a bland stand-in for 'normal' food she created a blog, What began as a hobby became an obsession, winning her not only legions of vegan and non-vegan foodie fans, but also the 2008 Best Veggie Blog Award from VegNews magazine. Here in her debut cookbook, Lauren shows that vegan food is anything but dull, with her creative and quirky twists on everything from crowd-pleasing appetizers to indulgent desserts, from easy weekend breakfasts to speedy weeknight dinners, plus holiday- and company-worthy fare you can serve with pride. Blueberry Waffles with Lemon Icing Strawberry Rhubarb Coffee Cake Stuffed Banana Berry French Toast Sweet Chili Lime Tofu Tahini Lemon Rice and Beans Corn Fritters Eggplant and Basil Stuffed Tomatoes Creamy Tomato Barley Risotto Crispy Sesame Kale Moroccan Spiced Root Vegetable Home Fries Smoky Miso Tofu Sandwiches Cannellini Bean Soup with Pan-fried Croutons Chinese Broccoli Wontons in Ginger-Soy Sauce Chipotle Basil Corn Chowder Baked Mac and Cheeze Gnocchi with Thyme Vinaigrette Lime Peanut Noodles with Seitan, Kale, and Carrots and much more . . . With most ingredients both readily available and budget-friendly, Vegan Yum Yum shows anyone how to go gourmet the vegan way."

I now own a miniature library of vegan and vegetarian cookbooks and this one is by far my favourite. All the recipes I have made from this book have been delicious; many of them I now make on a regular basis. Lauren Ulm provides step by step instructions (with pictures to help with the tricky steps) and every single recipe has a photo to accompany it, which is truly a milestone in vegan cookbooks!

This book will NOT disppoint you.

Every recipe I've tried so far has been fantastic and has not required tweaking aside from using less soy sauce (I'm sensitive to salty flavours).

Reipces I recommend: Crumpets, creamy tomato basil pasta, lime & peanut noodles, 7 spice udon, tomato chickpea soup, soy mirin tofu (with brown rice, snow peas, carrots & peanut sauce), sweet chili lime tofu with collards & quinoa, moroccan spiced root vegetables... There's more, I just can't remember them all off the top of my head.

Tonight we're trying the tomato/barley risotto. There is not one thing in this book that I'd hesitate to eat - what a winner!

Review quote

"My one week experiment with veganism, inspired by Lauren Ulm's book Vegan Yum Yum, was a revelation to me. I not only survived, but thrived without dairy and meat in my diet... "Vegan Yum Yum" has a huge range of inspiring recipes. The photo of the seitan black corn bean burger is pure, classy food porn that makes its carnivorous rivals in the fast food ads look like cheap white trash." I was worried about what the desserts would be like as I'm usually a cream fiend, but I need not have feared as I fell head over heels for the blueberry grunts recipe." --;EM>elephant journal--Jackie Gorman "elephant journal "
