    Veganomicon is the grown-up version of Vegan with a Vengeance. Not its momma but the grown-up post punk herself. Still the same intelligent, clever and witty writing and the same mind-blowingly creative recipes but this time there is some very helpful information on kitchen necessities...

    This is a phenomenal cookbook for anyone who likes to cook and eat delicious food, vegan or vegetarian or BBQ-snarfer. The whole section on how to cook vegetables is worth the price alone (I had no idea how amazing roasted green beans were, for example) and the Simple Seitan recipe is ...

    This is a great cookbook for both dyed-in-the-wool vegans and those omnivores who want to mix it up a little. Myself, I'm a longtime vegetarian who considers himself a vegan-wanna-be (I love vegan food to death but I still can't give up ice cream, cheese or cream cheese) and this book ...

    I wasn't really enticed by any of these recipes. Nothing popped out and said, EAT ME! I think a good portion also had to do with the photography, which was a tad on the cyan side and made me gag a little. Perhaps it's just the vegan lifestyle... No! I take that back. I've read and trie...

    Well, for some reason I thought that this was going to be more like a thorough vegan Joy of Cooking type book but it isn?t quite so comprehensive. However; it is great, and I didn?t end up being disappointed. Only cons: 1. all the photos are in the middle of the book vs. on th...

    First, the recipes are very well written and explained. The authors don't leave out any details, and include things like "when you bake this cake, it's really really important to not open the oven for at least 45 minutes no matter how tempting it is". They include lots of variations fo...

    LOVE IT! One of the best things about the Veganomicon is that in addition to awesome vegan recipes, it includes basic information about things such as cooking times for beans and grains, cooking terms, equipment, etc. A really, really awesome resource for ANY cookbook shelf, vegan, veg...

    I am like 90% pescatarian, meaning that throughout a month like 90% of what I eat contains no soil- or earthbound or non-sea worthy animal components except dairy, because I love cheese to an almost shameful degree. The 10% of my diet that is made from earth-roaming beasts comes genera...

    My wife & I have been working through this cookbook for a year now. Finally, I am going to write my review of it. Isa Chandra Moskowitz is a vegan foodie sensation. If you make vegan food regularly, you know there are basic techniques and styles we all rely on, and every once in a ...

    I'm still working my way through this cookbook, but so far I have really enjoyed the recipes I have tried. They are easy to make and the instructions are well written. I like the little tips that are included with the recipes. For example they list different alternatives to certain foo...

    Not a vegan, but certainly have cut down on all forms of saturated fat and upped the vegetable, fruit, and whole grain intake. As vegetarian Alice Waters said, it's what you eat, not what you don't eat. Steph is a wonderful resource for all things vegan and she was the inspiration for ...

    I haven't had the chance to make nearly as many recipes as I'd like to from this book yet, but I'm giving it a tentative five stars and will amend that if necessary. I tried to test a variety of recipes from different sections of the book so I could get a good overall feel for it. I...

    I decided to make the leap into veganism in July 2011 after reading several books about the diet's benefits and I have never felt better. I once couldn't imagine NOT eating meat or dairy, but after experimenting with so many great cookbooks, it really has been an easy transition. I hav...

    A good vegan cookbook is harder to find than a flesh-bound book of the dead. So, this is aptly, aptly named (and far less un-deadly). Not only is this book filled with, as far as I have tested, delicious recopies, it is better organized and extensive than most other cookbooks I've come...

    I've had this book for a year or more and have recommended it countless times to aspiring vegans, curious vegetarians, and diabetic carnivores. I use it every week: it is the backbone of my menu. It completely demystifies the 'vegan' label and makes good food easy, acessible, delicious...

    Not as exhaustive as it claims to be (how can it explain cooking different types of vegetables but not give any general guidance for tofu and other more unusual meat replacements?) but some very good recipes all the same - the samosa stuffed baked potatoes were especially delicious! ...

    This book has quite a few totally awesome recipes in it! I love how it gives the feeling of being a complete vegan cookbook - kind of the only book you'll ever need. But, there are a few stars missing in my rating... See, I have two big problems with this book: 1) The use of soy pr...

    This book is saucy and I like it: so far: Pineapple cashew quinoa - I accidentally made this with whole pecans instead of cashews because I was aggressively drunk cooking. I think the cashews would be better with this. I'm all about the pineapple flavor, though, and this was ...

    I've had this book for going on a year now. I made my first recipe from it last night---Pumpkin Baked Ziti with Caramelized Onions and Sage Crumb Topping. Cashew "Ricotta" is my new favorite thing. Omnivore hubby (who does not like ricotta cheese) had a big serving then helped himself ...

    I was first introduced to the wit and flavor of Isa Chandra Moskowitz through www.theppk.com, her blog. I picked up a copy of Veganomicon after reading a lot of the website and I have to say that I absolutely love this cookbook. Not only does it have a lot of helpful cooking tips and i...

    God, I wanted to love this cookbook. Picked it up when it was brand new, as Vegan with a Vengeance is one of my favorites. I appreciate the idea behind it - so many vegan cookbooks are thin paperbacks that it's a cool idea to try to up the game with a nice solid hardback. But in my opi...

    A good book for vegans, but probably not for newbies. There aren't many pictures, which is a real shame. It's primarily written for the American market, so there are lots of unusual ingredients, but nonetheless it's a good book. I like Isa's style of writing, it's easy and good fun. Re...

    A comprehensive vegan cookbook. I'll have to try some recipes before being sure of my rating. I'm not a fan of the emphasis on tofu and traditional wheat flours, but perhaps it will be worth it. ...

    Update: I've decided to bump this rating down a star because whenever I look at Veganomicon & on my shelf & think about making something out of it, I feel exhausted in advance. All the special ingredients, the recipes with multiple components, and the 80s-style photography... ...
