The 4 Ingredient Vegan: A book review
The kind folks at Book Publishing Company sent me a copy of this book to review. The title alone is very appealing and raises curiosity. Is it possible to create delicious vegan dishes with just four ingredients? Well after browsing through this cookbook and trying a handful of recipes, the answer is “yes”.
The 4 Ingredient Vegan offers simple and tasty recipes with easy to find ingredients and less time spent in the kitchen. This wonderful cookbook offers everything from breakfast to dessert. Simple, yet very palate pleasing.
The recipes tried in this book were quite tasty. The first recipe tested was the Lentil-Walnut Pate. The recipe was easy to make and made enough to feed a small army. Not only was it tasty with crackers, it is a great addition to any sandwich. The flavor was bold but harsh. It is the type of dip that could be enjoyed by adults as well as children.
The next recipe tried was the Seitan with Tomatoes and Sauerkraut. This meal was hearty and flavorful. Once again offering the simplest of ingredients. The leftovers made for a very nice lunch the following day.
The recipe for the Crispy Artichoke Hearts in The 4 Ingredient Vegan was to die for. They were so crispy and delicious. Simple to make, and perfect when dipped in the creamy horseradish sauce (also a recipe in the book). The recipe is listed as a side, but could easily be offered as an appetizer. It would be a real crowd pleaser.
The desserts offered in The 4 Ingredient Vegan were simplistic perfection. Easy ingredients, quick to make, and pleasing to the whole family. The Banana, Chocolate, and Ginger Pastry was not only a healthy dessert alternative but a combination of flavors that were flaky and delicious.
The 4 Ingredient Vegan would be a nice addition to any cookbook shelf. Simple, tasty, and easy to find ingredients. It is a book perfect for a person just learning to cook vegan food, as well as the seasoned family chef who is pressed for time.
