Hot for Food Vegan Comfort Classics: 101 Recipes to Feed Your Face Reviews
Lauren is forever the vegan queen!
I follow Lauren and hotfor food on instagram and since becoming vegan I use a lot of her recipes. It is quite amazing how she has not only the food but the flavorful herbs, spices, etc to make a rather gourmet meal and at the same time appeasing. I always check the recipes in the book to add ingredients to my list before I do my shopping. Thanks Lauren for keeping is real!
52 Book Challenge Week 40: Vegan Comfort Classics
So cookbooks aren't really traditional fare for me or challenges like this but I'm gonna go with it. I've been a huge Hot For Food fan for years, even before I was vegan. The videos are entertaining, the food is creative and delicious, she's Canadian, and everything is great. The recipes are mostly comfort foods and vegan versions of various fast food or convenience foods.
I decided 5 recipes was a good amount to try making before marking the book ...more
I love Hot For Food blog recipes. That website and You Tube channel were amazing when I found them a few years ago and several of the recipes are my absolute favorites. Over the past year or so, however, I've felt that the recipes have been more "created" than just recipes she really likes. They seem to follow trends or are too designed. I'm not sure how to express it but I haven't enjoyed them as much and unfortunately that's also how this book feels. There are some good recipes but I feel like ...more
Super delish recipes and beautiful book. But they are probably not the kind I'd make regularly due to how much effort they take.
Although the recipes in this vegan cookbook aren't all that healthy, that's really not the point.
The whole idea of this book is to recreate and reimagine some favourite restaurant style appetizers and mains with vegan alternatives. Although, I generally prefer recipes that embrace veggies for their vegginess and don't try to make them into meat, this book's take on vegan pub fare is better than most. What stood out for me was that every recipe has serving suggestions, tips for when substitution ...more
I love reading cookbooks especially vegan cookbooks and while I enjoyed looking at the recipes I found the author’s writing to be so apologetic! Own your writing, take pride in the recipes! Also cauliflower is a terrible substitute for “meat” or veggie meat, but a delicious vegetable that should be treated as a vegetable.
All your favourite non-vegan classics, remastered! These recipes are fun and relatively straight-forward, although many of them require more than 1 hour to prepare, which is honestly more time than I'd like to spend in the kitchen on a weeknight. Great for weekend meals though!
Note: people with nut allergies or those who are GF may struggle with this cookbook, as there are substitutions suggested but no alternative measurements provided.
For many people, the idea of vegan and comfort food are seldom in the same sentence, let alone a book title. In fact, many people think of vegan as the opposite of comfort food, so Lauren Toyota’s Hot for Food Vegan Comfort Classics is a challenge to that idea. Now, for me, one of my comfort foods is roasted brussels sprouts with a bit of lemon juice or balsamic vinegar, so to me, vegan comfort food sounded interesting. I am not vegan, but I love vegetables and fruits and think we are all a litt ...more
