Quick & Easy Vegan Comfort Food: 65 Everyday Meal Ideas for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner with Over 150 Great-Tasting, Down-Home Recipes

A born food-lover, raised in California on “the best Mexican food in the country” and her father’s “traditional Southern soul food,” Alicia C. Simpson couldn’t imagine giving up her favorite dishes to become vegan. Animal-free food might be healthier, but could it match the tastes of home—like fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, or a bowl of chili? Three years after Alicia took the vegan plunge, Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food answers that question with a resounding “yes!”

Here is the essential cookbook for any of America’s more than 6 million vegans who miss the down-home tastes they remember (or want to try), or for vegetarians and even meat-eaters who want to add more plant-based foods to their diets, but don’t know where to start. Comfort-seeking cooks will find:

  • Easy-to-prepare, animal-free versions of classics like Spicy Buffalo Bites, Ultimate Nachos, Baked Ziti and more
  • 65 delicious combinations for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with flavors from around the world, like “Chinese Take-In” or “Tijuana Torpedo”
  • Everything you need to know to start your vegan pantry, and why being vegan is easier, less expensive, and more delicious than you might think.

With spirit and style, Alicia shows just how easy—yes, and comforting—vegan food can be.

  1. a few good recipes, but… I was really disappointed by this book! I read a lot of great reviews, but when I got around to cooking with it myself, I found most of the recipes to be overly simplistic. There are some gems in here, to be sure, but I don’t think the author really had enough recipes to justify a whole cookbook, so she started throwing in some real no brainers. There’s a recipe for “dinner salad” that just lists 5 or 6 basic salad ingredients (seriously?). “Mini Pizza’s” are just english muffins, pizza sauce, fake meat & fake cheese. There are probably 15 recipes like that… super duper basic things that anyone can think up on their own.Another concern was the use of processed food items. Far too many recipes relied on expensive substitutes like fake meat and cheese. She even calls for specific brands at times, one of which she recommends ordering from the internet. I’m more interested in cooking with ingredients I can easily access for a reasonable price.If you are JUST STARTING OUT as a vegan and cook, this book might be helpful for you. If you are a seasoned vegan, pass this one by. Veganomicon is far superior!

  2. easy to find ingredients With some books you have to buy special food items to make anything. This book makes it possible to find the ingredients in your pantry. Very easy!
