Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From one of the most respected names in vegetarian cooking: a collection of creative, uncomplicated recipes for the new generation of vegans—and every cook who wants to introduce tasty, healthful dishes to everyday meals.

Nava Atlas, a committed vegan, offers a cookbook packed with recipes that can be prepared in thirty to forty-five minutes. Covering every course, Vegan Express presents appealing soups and stews like Udon Noodle Soup with Bok Choy and Shiitake Mushrooms; grain-and-bean-based recipes like Paella Vegetariana; Jambalaya Pasta and other noodle dishes; a wide variety of sandwiches, wraps, tortillas, pizzas, and main-course salads; and such delicious desserts as Caramel Pudding and Berry-Apple Skillet Crumble.

Review:

"Atlas (Vegetarian Soups for All Seasons) defies the stereotype of convenience vegan food as being heavy on rubbery, unappetizing substitutes for 'normal' ingredients. Though many of the dishes require only around half an hour to make, they skew more toward fresh vegetables and herbs rather than to faux meat. Spicy, flavorful recipes such as Curried Chickpeas with Chutney Bulgur and Salsa Orzo and Black Bean Salad send a clear message that one can cook vegan meals that satisfy even nonvegans. Atlas does use the basic protein alternatives (seitan, tofu and tempeh) as well as vegan cheeses and creamers at times, but these are incorporated so skillfully that people who usually turn up their noses at them will have no grounds to object. The book has strong international flair, with tofu replacing eggs in a Middleeastern Shakshouka and standing in for paneer in the Indian Tofu Aloo Gobi, as well as traditional meatless favorites like Pasta Puttanesca and Pad Thai. A few snacks and desserts are included, but most of the recipes are for dishes that, with a simple side, comprise a meal, facilitating speed, and Atlas sprinkles helpful tips on menu planning and variations throughout. The lack of photos to emphasize the food's appetizing potential is disappointing, but vegan, vegetarian and health-conscious omnivores just might be convinced after trying it out."
