vegan and gluten free

Having different dietary needs in your family can be quiet difficult.

Finding a cookbook that covers them all can be even more difficult.

That's why I was happy to get the opportunity to review Gluten-Free Vegan Comfort Food.

My family and I are NOT vegans, but we are eating more and more veggies. So, since two of the dietary needs in our family are gluten free and lactose free.. I had a feeling I could really enjoy cooking out of this book.

It's packed with over 120 yummy recipes that are your basic `comfort food' wants.

Recipes include:
* Pumpkin Waffles
* Broccoli-Cheese Soup
* Mac and Cheese
* Lasagna and Meatless Meatballs
* Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Cookies
* And many more!

As I sat down and flipped through the pages to familiarize myself with the book, I quickly realized that this cookbook was going to stretch me as a cook and expand my pantry items. But that's a good thing because I'm always willing to try out new ingredients.

Chia Seeds, coconut milk, and Tempeh are some of the items I have yet to cook with so far, but thanks to Susan's definitions at the beginning, I have an idea of what they are and how they are used in recipes, which was a big help.

I'm going to be honest and say that I don't know if we as a family would ever go vegan, but I was excited to see that all of the recipes in this book were so simple and easy to do, it didn't matter.

I liked how the book was neatly laid out with recipes clear and easy to read. I also enjoyed the beautiful recipe pictures that were included in the center. I'm a visual person, so the more pictures the better.

I decided to try out Susan's recipe for Mock Egg Salad.

I was a little leery of eating Tofu without marinating or cooking it, but I was game to try.

his week I think I'm going to try her Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Fudge! Doesn't that just sound yummy??

So if your looking for a Gluten-Free, vegan friendly cookbook... I say check this one out.
I LOVED it. It was so easy to make and tasted almost exactly like regular egg salad.

So-so

I tried two recipes from this cookbook, the Mac & Cheese and the Millet Bread. The Mac & Cheese tasted pretty good, though it calls for way more fake cheese than I normally feel comfortable using. It ended up making a ton of cheese sauce, more than I think the pasta really calls for, so I would recommend taking the fake cheese down from 3 cups to 2 or 2 and a half. The Millet Bread turned out somewhat horribly, but mostly because I think I overkneaded the dough and didn't let the oven completely preheat. The inside ended up not cooking through, which I didn't notice until I'd already removed it from the oven and let it cool. The taste (from what I could salvage) is very delicate, so if you're confident in your gluten-free breadmaking skills, this might be one to try.
