Maybe tasty, healthy, quick vegan recipes don't exist, but I vow to keep searching Nov 12, Erin rated it it was ok. This cookbook's audience is college student vegans who are working with a limited budget and limited kitchen resources. Though the recipes are all targeted to this audience, the book is definitely less than stellar. Many of the recipes are tasteless or bad-tasting, in my opinion.

This only furthers the favorite stereotype that vegan food tastes disgusting. Being vegan does not mean eating tasteless food. Just because you're cooking on a budget and with limited kitchen resources doesn't mean you This cookbook's audience is college student vegans who are working with a limited budget and limited kitchen resources. Just because you're cooking on a budget and with limited kitchen resources doesn't mean you have to sacrifice taste. I have made many amazing tasty recipes in the microwave that are totally vegan, totally easy and totally better than a lot of the stuff in this cookbook.

That is not to say that it's totally without merit. There are some recipes that are quite brilliant and its always good to be reminded of the simple stuff. Another problem I have found is that a lot of the recipes need tweaking to come out correctly, which shows poor recipe testing. Overall, this is an okay book for vegan college students leaving home who have no freakin' clue how to cook at all. They won't break any ground using this cookbook, but they will be fed vegan food and won't starve. However, if your teen knows how to cook this book would be an insult to their culinary intelligence.

If I had borrowed this before buying I never would've bought it. I guess you can decide for yourself. This book is everything that is wrong with the Vegan diet. My partner and I are Vegan, and we have Vegan friends who eat like this who are the epitome of what people are talking about when they say that Vegans look unhealthy. Firstly, this cook book assumes that everyone at college lives near somewhere that you can easily buy vegan friendly meat and dairy replacements.

It might be a bit easier in the US, but in the UK, without spending a fortune at a wholefoods store it was close to impossible. Cooking with these ingredients on a regular basis, despite them being spectacularly unhealthy, would have bankrupted me in a few months. There are so many quick, easy vegetable based meals that are healthy and take next to no time. The fact that this cook book chooses to focus on meat and dairy replacements and using a microwave as a cooking utensil just shows that the stereotype of unhealthy vegans is not entirely unfounded. It's so important to have a balanced, healthy diet, especially when you're in college.

As a vegan you need to make sure your meals are balanced well. We pick up the habits for the rest of our lives in college and if this cook book is any indication we'll have a generation of very unhealthy Vegans. Aug 27, AJ rated it did not like it Shelves: This cookbook made me gag.

It suggests buying ingredients such as olive oil and spices at the dollar store, and nearly every recipe calls for microwaving. There is an entire chapter on ramen, including such helpful recipes as "mix ramen and nutritional yeast, eat. OK, I get that most dorms don't have ovens or stoves, but some do, and many college aged students live off campus in apartments that have working appliances.

There are plenty of easy to ma This cookbook made me gag. There are plenty of easy to make meals that you can cook on a stove, in an oven, or in a crock pot that use ingredients that aren't plastic wrapped, frozen, or come from a can. I mean, have you ever eaten microwaved rice? I did once when my gas got shut off and couldn't use my stove. That's like dedicating a book to your arm. View all 4 comments. Sep 16, Ree rated it did not like it Shelves: Terrible waste of money. Easy and cheap is right - I don't need a cookbook to tell me to microwave a faux burger and put it on bread. Surely college students can work this out on their own.

The main 'beef' I have with this book is that is also full of unhealthy vegan options, you are better off getting a cookbook full of vegan whole foods recipes. Eating nothing but fake cheese and fake meat is lazy. Apr 03, Lipsy rated it it was ok Shelves: This book isn't what I was expecting at all. Yes, I guess it does cater particularly for students lacking in money, time, space and equipment but the recipes here are so basic that I wouldn't even call them recipes. I guess I was looking more for healthy, natural and yummy recipes that happen to be vegan, not recipes which mainly show you how to do vegan junk food on a budget.

It certainly took the whole 'college' thing to the extreme and to be honest I'm surprised PETA put their name to this at all, not to mention that this is an updated version, and the original seems to have been pretty slated too on Goodreads at least. Glutton for punishment it seems. I am probably being a bit harsh. Maybe if I was Vegan when I was at university I would have relished this book. Although I honestly think I made better food in my student days from a trolley-full of Asda Smart Price products.

I will say this though, it was an entertaining read. The LOLZ at student life and food puns to go along with it stood out much more than the food itself. I mean, I'm not sure if I was laughing at them or with them For that reason and because I'm sure it would be useful to many a lazy, poor student who happen to be Vegans am I giving it 2 unicorns. If this book was aimed at me, it would get 0. Cute, modern and straightforward, with tons of simple recipes. This recent edition of PETA's Vegan College Cookbook features simple recipes for a wide variety of both healthy and indulgent meals that could be made on a student's budget, with a limited supply of kitchen utensils.

The microwave is used in many different ways. Recipes tend to have fewer ingredients, which is always a plus when living in cramped spaces, with limited materials and even more limited time. To add further insight on the p Cute, modern and straightforward, with tons of simple recipes.

To add further insight on the playful and practical tone of the book, in addition to rather traditional cook book chapters like Breakfast, Soups, Salads, Dinners and Desserts, other chapters spotlight inexpensive staples like Ramen and Potatoes. I especially liked the idea of one recipe made from cooked rice, soy sauce and peanut butter.

While not perfectly healthy, what an energy boost! That is taken from the spectacular "Spotlight on Peanut Butter" chapter. Personally, I did not like how often fake meat items were used. That is my opinion, though using items such as fake chicken patties and fake meat crumbles does qualify under the vegan rule book. Just, personally, no thank you. This is because I find the idea of trying to realistically replicate meat, and the usually high sodium content in these products disagreeable. Because of the wide variety I would recommend this very highly.

Even non vegans could grab tons of ideas from the recipes inside. At present, there are cute facts about animals, nothing distressing or disturbing. I wish I had had this book when I was at university! Stir in the vanilla, salt, and nutmeg. Sweeten with some sugar. How will you celebrate?

An easy and realistic vegan cookbook. This is useful for anyone who doesn't want to spend much time on food preparation. Everything can be done in the microwave, but, honestly, you can add steps to suit individual taste. I have a big collection of vegan cookbooks, but they mostly are not used because I don't want to spend a few hours a day buying ingredients, chopping, cooking and cleaning.

I do it for guests and if I'm in the mood, but never for every day. This cookbook adds options for us minimalists who want to eat well but keep it simple. The book itself is of good quality, but I did not like the recipes. Most of them are unappetizing and unhealthy, which I now realize that it was not advertising healthy recipes.

I liked the idea of this book, but as a college student, I do not eat microwaved food every day and want to enjoy a healthy vegan lifestyle. I am a new vegan and this book did not help me with my transition, but it might help students who live in dorms with only a microwave for cooking. I am a huge peta supporter and i love vegan recipes and am in college. This is perfect for people who don't have time to cook, and throw everything in the microwave.

It is aimed for college students who eat ramen noodles and are always on the go. My biggest disappointment was that it doesn't have any pictures inside, which makes it hard for me to page through and find something that looks yummy to me, when it's an endless blur of black text. Although the recipes have microwave directions, one could always make them on the stove instead.
