PhotobucketSo you’ve thought you’d like to try some vegan cooking, but what in heaven’s name do those people use in place of milk and eggs?  Or maybe you are a vegan already, and you want some new recipes to shake things up in the kitchen.  No matter your reason for searching out a vegan cookbook, The Complete Idiot’s Guide series has a book loaded with great vegan recipes that’s sure to get your culinary imagination humming.  It’s called The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Vegan Cooking

My family isn’t vegan; I guess you’d call us weekday vegetarians.  We eat a little meat on the weekends, and if there’s a special event we’ll often eat some then too.  But to be perfectly honest, we all feel much better without the meat.  So I’m always on the lookout for fresh new vegan and vegetarian recipes.  The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Vegan Cooking has been a real pleasure to use.  The recipes cover everything from soups to breads to main courses to a delicious selection of desserts.  I’ve been having a great time picking things out to cook, and my family is enjoying the recipe testing process.  The recipes are easy to follow, and as with all of The Complete Idiot’s Guide series, it’s filled with great tips and information that will only enhance the cooking and eating experience.  Another plus any cook can relate to:  The book stays open while you cook.  (Don’t you hate cookbooks that flop shut while you’re trying to read them?)

So if you’re ready to try baking an Orange Cranberry Loaf or Mushroom and Veggie Fajitas, or if your stomach’s been grumbling for some healthy desserts like Coconut-Almond Macaroons or Hot Fudge Pudding Cake, I’ve got great news!  You can enter to win a copy of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Vegan Cooking right here!

  1. My brother is vegan and so much of what he says makes sense. My husband and I are trying to eat healthier and I quite often prepare meals without meat. I don’t know if I’d ever be able to give up seafood or cheese, tho. I would love to win this cookbook and have some recipes that would be healthy.

  2. My mother in law is vegan, so we always had to be creative with holiday meals. Also, recently, my son was officially diagnosed as being allergic to eggs, so we have been relying on vegan recipes because they are guaranteed to be egg-free. I have had such a wonderful experience finding substitutes for eggs in standard recipes. I would love to win this cookbook to expand my cooking abilities for all of us.

  3. I am a vegetarian, but have not yet made the switch to being vegan. I bake quite frequently, so I would love to find alternative leavening agents that aren’t animal products. Ive not quite had success yet with any baked good.

  4. I have been a vegetarian all my life. Vegan cooking has always had me intrigued, I just dont quite know how to do that yet! I would love to cook tasty vegan meals at home.

  5. I would be totally vegan if they didnt sneak stuff into foods.I have learned how to read labels to make wiser decisions:)

  6. There is a couple reason why I would like to try this cookbook!! I recently found out from my Naturalpath Doc that I am allergic to dairy and it affects my depression/anxiety. Also, would like to try it for our over all health. I have a 13 month old and I want to raise her on healthy foods.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. We’re not completely vegitarian, but I try to make a couple of meatless and/or vegan meals each week. I’d love to learn more! Thanks!

  8. What a great giveaway! My two daughters (ages 10 and 14) have been vegetarians for the last 5 years… I thought this would be a great cookbook for them to try as they learn to cook on their own!
    Thanks for the opportunity,

  9. when i was 12 my body was telling me not to eat dairy products but i continued…then as a young adult my body decided it couldn’t digest lactose…eventually it switched to a soy intolerance…after not listening to the signals for about 30 years my body decided to reject meat…i have since learned to listen to my body and have become a vegetarian. i’m not vegan yet, but the way my body works, i’m sure it won’t be long.

  10. I was a vegetarian for a number of years until very recently and still find cooking meat really tricky to get right! when I first became vegetarian I could only cook spinach and ricotta pie so I basically live off it! For my 20th birthday my friends gave me a cook book called vegetarians for dinner and it is fantastic! Even though i now eat meat this book comes out every week without fail and my partner (who is a BUTCHER!) loves it too! Oh and when I first became vegetarian my mother said it was a “just a fad” so she still doesn’t know I’m eating meat and always prepares special vego food just for me!

  11. I have recently become a vegetarian and often struggle to make tasty meals that my kids will also eat. I’m usually not successful; I just never seem to be able to cook it right so I end up making them something else. Help! Would love to win this. Thanks! stilljen AT comcast DOT net
