    This is a good basic cookbook if you're looking for inspiration for quick vegan meals. Nutritional information is provided, which is great, and it's very affordably priced. I also like that it's mostly real food based and recipes tend to be healthy (not a bunch of fake foods), although some recipes do call for vegan cheese, sour cream, TVP, etc. Recipes are provided for some basic vegan staples like hummus and ricotta. Many recipes are gluten free and recipes often include substitutions to make This is a good basic cookbook if you're looking for inspiration for quick vegan meals. Nutritional information is provided, which is great, and it's very affordably priced. I also like that it's mostly real food based and recipes tend to be healthy (not a bunch of fake foods), although some recipes do call for vegan cheese, sour cream, TVP, etc. Recipes are provided for some basic vegan staples like hummus and ricotta. Many recipes are gluten free and recipes often include substitutions to make them gluten free, nut free, soy free and/or oil free. On the down side, there are almost no photos and some recipes require equipment like a spiralizer or pressure cooker that not all cooks may have. Chapters include: * Intro info (top sources for protein, tips and tricks, etc.) * No Cooking Required (overnight oats, smoothies, smoothie bowls, fruit and veggie gazpacho, salads, wraps, etc.) * Thirty-Minute Meals or Less (breakfast burrito, tofu scramble, soups, barbecue tofu, mushroom sloppy joe, jackfruit philly cheesesteak bowl, jacked-up hearts of palm fritters, etc.) * Five Ingredients (veggie spring rolls, smoky coleslaw, skillet seitan stew, buddha burrito bowl, cheezy zucchini lasagna, sweet potato alfredo, etc.) * One-Pot Wonders (potato and pinto bean hash, spaghetti squash marinara, one-pot mac, etc.) * Bake It Right: Sheet Pan & Casserole Dinners (tofu-spinach casserole, baked butter beans, collard green bean bake, sheet pan pota-chos, etc.) * No-Pressure Pressure Cooking (warm cabbage salad, paprika potato soup, perfect pasta under pressure, chipotle lentils, etc.) * Kitchen Staples (vegan sour cream, ricotta, oat milk, peanut sauce, seitan, etc.) This is likely to be a handy cookbook for some vegans, especially those looking for quick dinner inspirations. Ultimately, I wasn't really tempted to make most of the recipes, though. They didn't strike me as particularly appealing. For instance, the macaroni and cheese is just pasta cooked in veggie broth and tossed with vegan margarine, salt and a little nutritional yeast. I appreciate it as a source of inspiration though, and think many folks may find it helpful.

    I am not a vegan per se but I could eat some vegan recipes and really enjoy them. Fast and East Vegan Cookbook by JL Fields is a cookbook that would be one I would use. It has 100 tasty recipes that are fast, easy or both to prepare. They also have dietary options so you can adapt any recipe to fit your dietary needs. Coconut Curry Soup, Spicy Pinto Bean Skillet or Mushroom Stroganoff Bake and so many more.

What is really helpful is a graph at the end of the book letting the cook know if the recipe is Gluten Free, Nut Free, Oil-Free or Soy Free. Recipes are easy to read and follow and most ingredients can be found at the local grocery store. I think that this is a cookbook that will inspire the vegan/non-vegan cook to want to branch out and make these recipes. I love it!

Versatile vegan recipes for quick and easy meals. Whether you’re a full-time vegan or just interested in eating more plant-based foods, variety will spice up your life. The Fast & Easy Vegan Cookbook brings a new selection of fresh meals to your table, pronto! From one-pot to pressure cooker, choose your favorite cooking method—without being held hostage for hours in your kitchen. This flavorful vegan cookbook doesn’t require a long list of ingredients or a huge time commitment. The preparation techniques are simple—there’s even a chapter devoted to not cooking at all (Gazpacho, anyone?). Every recipe lists nutritional information, and most include tips for ingredient substitution, adding more protein, or other easy customizations. The Fast & Easy Vegan Cookbook includes: 100 tasty recipes—Whip up meals full of personality and variety like Artichoke Heart Salad, Spicy Pinto Bean Skillet, Mushroom Stroganoff Bake, and more. Fast, easy, or both—Choose from chapters on 30-minute recipes, sheet pan and casserole meals, 5-ingredient dishes—or even recipes with no cooking required! Dietary options—This vegan cookbook lets you adapt menus to your needs with handy labels for gluten-free, nut-free, oil-free, or soy-free diets. Eat easily, healthfully, and deliciously with the Fast & Easy Vegan Cookbook. This is a good cookbook for occasional or all the time vegans - the nutritional information was helpful and there were more "whole foods" than those Frankenfood burgers that seem to be the rage these days - too processed to be healthy IMHO. I would have liked photos and a lot of the recipes require kitchen tools that some people don't have - although why anyone DOES NOT have a pressure cooker is beyond me these days ... LOL (I cook in my InstantPot daily!) The recipes are pretty basic and easy to add diary or meat or fish to if that floats your boat - it was a good cheap-ish Kindle read. As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis (outside of their incessant use by "Social Influencer Millennials" on Instagram and Twitter) so let's give it 🍑🍄🥑🥥

    I am always skeptical when a cookbook brags that it is "fast & easy" because more often than not, they are full of crap. There will be a million ingredients, tons of prep, and loads of cleanup. That kind of cooking is not my jam. I was very pleasantly surprised when I realized that this cookbook was in fact fast (some of the recipes weren't as "easy" as I would like - I love me some 5 ingredients and under foods).

There was a pretty big variety of recipes (100) and the few that I have tried have been crowd pleasers. I really enjoyed tofu scalloped potatoes, Texas chili, smokey coleslaw, and the coconut curry soup. There are still loads more that I want to try out, I'll eventually try them all except for the pressure cooking ones - I'm too poor to own that.Overall I think this is an excellent cookbook, there could have been more pictures, but I'll live. A great addition to any vegan or vegetarian's kitchen!

It would be a 5 star for me if it included photographs of the recipes; however, I respect that their inclusion would likely have greatly increased the cost of the book. The book is ordered in an unusual but useful way, with the following chapters: an introduction, vegan meals made fast & easy, no cooking required, thirty minute meals or less, five ingredients, one-pot wonders, bake it right: sheet pan and casserole dinners, no pressure pressure cooking, kitchen staples, and then the usual measurement conversions, references, the dirty dozen and the clean fifteen, acknowledgements. As can be seen, there are many ways to approach recipes here, depending on your need. The emphasis is always on easy but you also have varieties of quick depending on the time you have for preparation and cooking. The presentation is clean; the lack of photographs is made up by using colored text in various areas. The recipes themselves are nicely laid out: bold blue title text, allergy info, servings number and prep time in a green shaded box, and then a brief introduction of the recipes/notes from the author. The ingredients are in a bold text and listed in their own area. Beneath, are numbered brief steps, each no more than 1-2 sentences. They are followed by substitution tips, gluten free options, nut free options, soy free options, and oil-free options. Small text at the very bottom of each recipe includes per serving info on calories, total fat, total carbs, fiber, sugar, protein, sodium. Because this is a vegan cookbook, the author has information about gaining protein into a meat-free diet and also gives examples of how the topic was handled in her own family. There is also an emphasis on pressure cookers but Fields gives options at the back of the book for those who do not have one. Although the lack of photographs of how the recipes should look when completed keeps this from being a 5-star review, I can say that the recipes lived up to the promise of being VERY easy and also without a lot of exotic one-off ingredients that have to be hunted for in stores/increase meal cost. As such, I find this is a very useful book for every day use. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.

    Not the prettiest book but good solid, non-sanctimonious recipes. The dishes we tried were yummy alone or *cough, cough* next to meat proteins. The best thing was it’s very helpful not killing my gluten challenged guest. This is a keeper and being bought in print form.

    I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. My thoughts and opinions are my own. It is so hard to find a cookbook that I'll use regularly, especially one that's 100% vegan. Typically, I'll end up using only a handful recipes, so keeping the entire book has always felt a little pointless. Does anyone else do that? Buy an entire cookbook just for a couple of recipes?

Well, I am happy to report that there are quite a few recipes in the Fast & Easy Vegan Cookbook that I'm looking forward to making. I've skimmed the entire book, marked the pages that snagged my attention, and successfully made Creamy Portobello Soup. My son had to leave school early on Friday because he had a fever, and soup is a pretty standard response when someone is sick. Me? I always want potato soup (the chunky kind my mom makes, but that I can never get exactly right). However, my son loves mushrooms. I remembered seeing a recipe in this book, so I stopped and grabbed some friendly fungus on our way home. There are a lot of cookbooks out there that claim their recipes are "fast and easy," but most of the time that's simply not true. Thankfully, Fast & Easy Vegan Cookbook is exactly what it claims to be. The recipe I followed was straightforward and required very little of my time. Bonus: I already had most of the ingredients (just not the main one, haha), and was able to prep this meal and have it ready in 15-20 minutes. I also really liked the variety in this cookbook, and appreciated the inclusion of the recipe index and dietary labels at the end. Whether you're a vegan or not, this cookbook is definitely worth looking into. Side note: I used 1 tablespoon of olive oil instead of 1 teaspoon, waaay more salt that what was required, and 2 mushroom caps instead of one (in case anyone decides to give this recipe a whirl).

Those who are unfamiliar with the vegan way of eating will not be overwhelmed because the recipes are neither challenging nor involved. I found some great recipes that are delicious and flavorful, including Protein Pasta Primavera, Speedy Corn Chowder, Mushroom Stroganoff Bake, One-Pot Mac, and Simple Vegan Sour Cream. There are two negatives to this cookbook and make me hesitant to recommend it to other readers. One, which I mentioned above, is the fact that the recipes are too simple and easy. Two, and more importantly, there is a lack of photographs of the finished dishes. The visual effect really helps to break up a cookbook, giving readers some visualization of the completed recipes. In a genre full of similar offerings, the Fast & Easy Vegan Cookbook just does not stand out.

    Let's face it... changing your diet from being a omnivore to strict vegan isn't easy. I tried it several years ago and went right from eating a steak to only veggies, no dairy (not a fan anyway) and no eggs or fish! When you cut out so much, trying to cook for a family with small children who are picky eaters anyway, it's extremely difficult. Now I love to cook, I follow the basis of recipes but I do my own thing when it comes to measurements and additional flavors, but I had no idea what I was Let's face it... changing your diet from being a omnivore to strict vegan isn't easy. I tried it several years ago and went right from eating a steak to only veggies, no dairy (not a fan anyway) and no eggs or fish! When you cut out so much, trying to cook for a family with small children who are picky eaters anyway, it's extremely difficult. Now I love to cook, I follow the basis of recipes but I do my own thing when it comes to measurements and additional flavors, but I had no idea what I was doing and every meal I made came out horribly wrong. If you've ever had a vegan meal professionally prepared at a restaurant or something, you know for sure that vegan meals can taste good... they must have some magic stuffed up their sleeves, because it didn't matter what I tried, nothing was edible. With this book, I'm happy to report that you can eat that way you want, without going through what I went through. It's super easy to follow with great recipes that aren't too difficult and you'll actually be able to eat what you've made, unlike me who wasted countless amounts of food trying recreate some magical dish I've previously had. Thank you to Netgalley for this ARC!

    We aren’t 100% plant-based, but moving toward it slowly. This book is going to be a fantastic resource for our busy family—most recipes are: 1) family-friendly (great for picky kids), and 2) simple!

    3 1/2 stars I love to see new vegan and vegetarian cookbooks come on the market. It not only means that there’s lots of interest, but that I also get the opportunity to discover and try some new recipes or learn some new things.

    I had the pleasure of seeing JL speak at the Nashville Veg Fest this year. Awesome lady, both a vegan and BOPO advocate. There are plenty of recipes I've marked up to try now that I've gone through the whole thing and happy to buy this to support her. I love her stance on the Impossible Burger as well :]

    Some great looking, fast recipes I like that this book has truly easy recipes that are still packed with great flavor. It is organized well and many of the recipes also reference complementary recipes elsewhere in the book. This is going to be super helpful when feeding the vegan in-laws.
