I feel like the vegan and vegetarian gods read my cookbook reviews in the past couple of years and have deigned to smile on me with this year’s offerings. As I paged through The Meat-Free Kitchen, I was like a kid in a candy shop–or a hungry vegetarian.

The Meat-Free Kitchen has pages and pages of fresh, original recipes. Can you imagine an entire section of vegan burger recipes? Neither could I until I saw it with my own eyes. Now I’ve never used wheat gluten before nor made seitan (there are burgers that don’t incorporate these ingredients, by the way), but let me just tell you that these recipes have me intrigued, perhaps enough to give it a try.

The breakfasts offer some interesting flavors like vegan congee, peanut butter pancakes, oatmeal bowls, buckwheat and black beans bowls–foods that will definitely fill you up until lunch. Oh, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the Cherry Oatmeal Protein-Packed Energy Burger, which really looks like a very scrumptious cookie that the authors promise will keep you full. I want to try that one very much!

On my list of recipes to make is the Creamy Potato Soup with Kale and Corn. That sounds so warming and delicious on a winter’s night as well as filled with healthy ingredients.

Casseroles! Buddha Bowls! Yummy wraps and salads! So so much goodness.

If you’ve been thinking of going meatless and are looking for some mouth-watering recipes to try, I highly recommend The Meat-Free Kitchen. One issue one might have though is if you’re looking for nutritional information, there isn’t any. I use an app for that. Ha.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

  1. Thank you for your commitment to helping those who haven’t done it yet, go humane and healthy! I have to put in a plug for the “Beyond Meat” products. These are soy and gluten free and made from peas and taste so much like burger that if you smother them with burger fixings, they taste as much like meat as meat. I don’t eat them a lot–I prefer eating straight veggies and less processed–but on occasion they’re my guilt-free pleasure.
