As a foodie, cookbooks are much like my candy jar. I love to try new flavorful dishes and explore new ideas. For this reason, many recent vegan cookbooks have raised a yawn from me. Either they’re regurgitating already extremely well-explored territory or the recipes lack flavor because the author didn’t experiment with herbs or spices. So, I’m always a little skeptical when I open a new vegan cookbook. But, The Budget-Friendly Vegan Cookbook? Wow!

The first thing that struck me as I was paging through and reading the recipes was how many of these recipes were fresh. The next was how flavorful they were with the author definitely not afraid to use spices to create flavorful dishes. I kept noting how many of these recipes I wanted to try. A Curried Potato, Cauliflower and Pea Burrito? Yes, please. It’s all the flavor of a samosa (+ cauliflower) in a more healthy tortilla. And though I’ve never tried soy curls, I am all over the Soy Curl Shawarma Wrap.

Ally Lazare covers the bases from creating tempting sauces to fruit-filled muffins and yummy desserts, all within a budget as well as low-calorie.

While some might be disappointed that every recipe doesn’t have a picture, as I’ve said before, I’m certain that this allows the publisher to keep their cookbooks budget friendly. Seriously. Have you seen the prices of glossy cookbooks? You’d spend all your grocery money just purchasing one! 😉 The pictures that are included are tantalizing though. The picture of the Blueberry Hand Pie makes me salivate.

I highly recommend The Budget-Friendly Vegan Cookbook for anyone seeking fresh and wallet-friendly recipes!

  1. Nice review! I’m going to check this one out. I’ve been looking for a Vegan cookbook that’s straight to the point and with simple, easy to grab ingredients. Thanks for sharing!

    • This would probably be the perfect cookbook then. There’s enough variety in the recipes without costing the bank–and I think most of us are in need of a frugal recipes these days.
