View Full Version : Vegan cooking

My brother just recently became a vegan. He is having difficulty in finding recipes. I bought him a cook book "1,000 Vegetarian Recipes" and that helped a little. Can anyone suggest anything else? Thank you.

Hi. I guess at the beginning it might be hard to adjust his kitchen to vegetarian guidelines. TRy these web sources for recipes www.vrg.org (http://www.vrg.org) www.vegetariantimes.com (http://www.vegetariantimes.com) www.vegetarianrecipe.com (http://www.vegetarianrecipe.com) www.vegweb.com (http://www.vegweb.com) www.vegkitchen.com (http://www.vegkitchen.com)
Bookstores like Borders always have great sales on cookbooks and there is an extensive variety of vegetarian books.
Cooking Light has several recipes online and on their monthly magazine.

The best book for him to get would be Laurel's Kitchen. It not only has many vegetarian recipes that are also vegan but explains the dietary needs of vegans and vegetarians in a very comprehensive, easy to understand way. Vegetarian Times has a cookbook that has quite a few vegan recipes. He might also look through the various Moosewood Collective cookbooks (there are several). Usually in the back they have a list of all the recipes they have that are vegan. He may already know this but if he is eating a very strict vegan diet (meaning absolutely no dairy, eggs, etc.) he should supplement his diet with nutritional yeast and blackstrap molasses (not necessarily together http://www.cookinglight.com/bbs/wink.gif) EVERY DAY. (Sorry to yell, but I still can't figure out how to bold.) Otherwise, he will be deficient in some important B vitamins and iron (even for a man). It is better to supplement this way than with multi-vitamins because your body absorbs the nutrients more efficiently. Nutritional yeast is actually pretty good as a cheese substitute (he could use it like he would parmesan cheese) and blackstrap molasses mixed in a glass of soy milk is actually pretty yummy. Or he can use it as a sweetener in a smoothie.

I just wanted to thank you for your information. This is going on 4 months for him and I want to be sure he is eating right. I will pass this information on to him with your regards.
