    While most all of these recipes sounded delish, many of them turned me off bit due to the sheer number of ingredients and the steps/time they appeared to involve. Many recipe directions were more than one page and I just don't have time for that most days. What I did enjoy - actually super enjoyed - were the vast number of sauces and dressings. They were all super easy, with few ingredients and are very versatile in their uses. I am grateful to have received an advanced copy of this book in exch While most all of these recipes sounded delish, many of them turned me off bit due to the sheer number of ingredients and the steps/time they appeared to involve.

    Please note this review will likely be completely biased because I love Lauren Toyota and have followed her youtube channel 'hot for food' for years and have been eagerly awaiting this book release.

I loved this vegan cookbook, it had delicious recipes with common and easily found ingredients. The pictures were gorgeous. My favourite section though was the how to make sauces from scratch vegan. In my local supermarkets I can't yet get vegan sour cream, ranch dressings, mayo etc etc. so to be able to easily make my own at home is awesome. I've tried three of the quick easy sauces so far the gravy, sour cream and aioli. Honestly, can't wait to make more.Only negative I can really think of for this book is that the main meals do require some time commitment looking on average about 30-45 minutes to make a dish, but this is the same with her great free recipes on her youtube channel so you just have to be inspired and motivated to try them.Overall, this is a fantastic book for those that are vegan, looking into veggie lifestyle, lactose intolerant or just looking to try tasty new recipes. This book was given to me by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I am reviewing this book for Lauren Toyota, Ten Speed Press, and NetGalley who gave me a copy of their book for an honest review. Some of these recipes sound very tempting and I will be trying them out ... but the prep time and the cooking time puts me off a bit as the majority of the recipes appear to have at least 20 minutes ofeach ... and most days I don't have 40 minutes to spare cooking.I enjoyed the photos which were well taken and made the recipe seem even more appealing.

    My favorite vegan you tuber! I love that the recipes contain mainstream easy to find ingredients. Since I live to cook the prep and cook time is not an issue. I am a firm scratch girl and look forward to testing the recipes from cover to cover. Perhaps I will vlog my journey through this cookbook on YouTube. Thanks Lauren!
