In Vegan with a Vengeance, Isa Chandra Moskowitz, co-host
of the vegan cooking show, The Post Punk Kitchen, brings the
do-it-yourself, community-driven ethos of punk rock into the
kitchen. Her cooking philosophy embraces being kind to animals (all
recipes are completely animal-product free) and your wallet - while
being creative and having fun in the process. She emphasizes fresh
ingredients over heavily processed corporate brand-name foods and
says that, like good music, cooking is best when it’s an
innovative, experimental, and completely real experience. Her
inspired recipes - covering all meals of the day and influenced by
dishes from around the world – include Asparagus and Sun-Dried
Tomato Frittata, Fresh Mango Summer Rolls, Pumpkin Waffles, Tofu
Dill Salad Sammiches, Green Goddess Garlic Pizza, Sweet Potato
Crepes with Cilantro-Tamarind Sauce, Brooklyn Pad-Thai, Banana
Split Pudding Brownies, Fauxstess Cupcakes, and Gingerbread Apple
Pie. Not only will you find over 150 inspired recipes, you’ll also
get a list of essential tools and pantry items, suitable
substitutes for those without all the fancy kitchen gear and
ingredients, handy resources and fun facts, too! 258 pages. Cover
price is $17.95 per copy- our price is $13.95!

Isa writes the best vegan cookbooks
From Cara of North Bethesda, Maryland on .
I bought Veganomicon first and later bought Vegan with Vengeance because Veganomicon was so good. Isa cannot do wrong. I've cooked tons of recipes out of both books and have only maybe had two out of both so far that were not good (out of maybe 30 + recipes I've cooked).
Many other vegan books I have rely on a huge number of obscure ingredients that you usually don't have on hand. Isa is great at giving you recipes that use what you likely already have in the kitchen without a special trip. Of course, along with the easy recipes there are also some great fancy dishes. Everything is creative, unique, and delicious. I cook all the time and I rely almost entirely upon these two cookbooks.
The best recipes out of this book have been the Jerk Seitan, Lemon corn waffles and blueberry sauce, Black-eyed Pea and Quinoa Croquettes with Mushroom Sauce, Sweet Potato Crepes with Cilantro-Tamarind Sauce, and (of course) the Gingerbread Apple Pie.
It's definitely worth getting both this book and Veganomicon because there isn't that much overlap and they're both great. I'd say that Veganomicon is much more extensive than this book, however, if you're just going to buy one.
My cookbook pages are sticky from all the cooking I'm doing
From David Broiles of Baltimore, Maryland on .
Hands down, best intro Vegan Cookbook. Her Veganomicon is probably the "Best in Show", just heaps of required pre-cooking info to absorb first.
Can't go wrong with this one
From Joseph Monroe of Boston, Massachusetts on .
One of the best vegan cookbooks
Now I LOVE tofu!
From sharona dion of fredericton, New Brunswick on .
I didn't think it was possible: I had tried to make tofu many times and it was always this disgusting bally mush.
But using the directions (and recipe for marinated tofu) in this book has changed my life. I mean that. The recipes in this book will ensure that I can be a vegan for life.

Amazing! Best cookbook ever
From Arielle of Marianna, Florida on .
Every single recipe in Vegan With A Vengeance is delicious. Isa has many tips for her recipes throughout the whole book. If you've never cooked before this is definitely the cookbook to start with. She tells you the essential pantry items you need as well as replcements for certain things that you might not have on hand. All of her ingredients are easy to find and you won't have to go online to find anything weird or exotic. She makes it enjoyable to read with her funny stories. I love this cookbook and cherish it over any other, except maybe her other one, Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World. Pure Heaven!
