    One thought on “Virgin Vegan: The Meatless Guide to Pleasing Your Palate”

    1. 2.5 stars. What I had been hoping for was a book written by someone about their experience transitioning to a plant-based diet. While this book was full of helpful nutrition information in an easily accessible writing style, it wasn't the book I was hoping for. The author bio states that Linda Long has been veggie for several decades, and this book was published in 2013, which makes me wonder what the title "Virgin Vegan" is meant to convey. Additionally, the recipes are all contributed by other [...]

    2. Even though the title is Virgin Vegan, this cookbook is a great addition to anyones cookbook shelf, and I'm not just saying that because one of my recipes(Easy Skillet Drop Biscuits with Hot Berries) happened to end up in it. The beginning of this book has a lot of information for beginnig vegans--why to be vegan, how to fill your plate and get all the right nutrients, how to eat when traveling. The recipes are what makes this book shine for me. There are recipes in this book that a new vegan mi [...]

    3. Book was fully loaded with a lot of information for curious people--really loved the nutrition facts for each major vitamin and mineral and the vegan sources of said nutrients. The recipes looked great, and it was very informative, although it felt a tad preachy--but hey it has a very specific audience here. I also can't get on board with tofu as much as this book pushes for tofu and other processed vegan substitutes, so I will probably not be using too many recipes.

    4. This is a great starter book for someone who is beginning their Vegan journey. I have tried two recipes so far (steamed kale and french fries) and loved them!

    5. This would be a great pick for someone who is not very familiar with cooking for themselves, let alone in a vegan way. It is full of very basic recipes that are staples of a great vegan diet. However, and obviously this is my fault for not heeding the "virgin" title, it is no match for someone who already owns Veganomicon or a similar book.
