Homestyle Vegan Cookbook - Cookbook Review

Homestyle Vegan by Amber St. Peter is filled with recipes that will remind you of the home cooked meals of your childhood. She kept the ingredients in the book simple so that the recipes would be able to be made by anyone. From Apple Cider Donuts and Cinnamon Rolls in the breakfast section to Buffalo Cauliflower Bites and Lobster Mushroom Bisque in the Feed Your Friends section, she does a great job of making everything sound so delectable.

I made two of the recipes in this book. The first one, Creamy Wild Mushroom Soup, is pretty amazing. With just some cashew cream, mushrooms, onions, thyme, and a few other ingredients, you can whip up this creamy soup in no time. This is a fantastic soup to serve friends and family--loaded with umami and love.

The second recipe I made was the Corned Bean Hash, a play on Corned Beef Hash, listed in the breakfast section, but I made it as dinner. After mixing simple ingredients together like red potatoes, kidney beans, tahini, and onion, I had a great tasting dish. The fantastic flavor could be attributed to the mix of tahini and cayenne pepper. It is a very filling and satisfying dish. Double the recipe to get even more!

Other recipes that caught my eye were Carrot Cupcakes with Orange Vanilla Cream Frosting, French Onion Soup, Smoky Potato Salad, and Cauliflower Rice Risotto with Homemade Parmesan.

After testing the recipes, I did feel like there were some things missing so you'll see I fixed my version of these recipes to account for that. All in all though, I think it's a solid cookbook. You can order Homestyle Vegan on

Full Disclosure: Although the book was provided to me for free to review, that in no way influenced my veracious opinion.
