Gluten-Free Vegan Comfort Food Book Review – Vegan Recipes Included

Gluten-Free Vegan Comfort Food by Susan O'BrienLooking for classic comfort foods transformed into gluten-free and vegan? Look no further. Gluten-Free Vegan Comfort Food has 125 recipes from vegan breakfast options like French toast to potluck favorites like baked beans and peanut butter rice crispy treats.

Author Susan O’Brien has also written The Gluten-Free Vegan: 150 Delicious Gluten-Free, Animal-Free Recipes and Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Cooking: Over 200 Delicious Recipes to Help You Live a Healthier, Allergy-Free Life.

Most of the recipes are easy to make; none of them are complicated. More importantly, (to me) many of the recipes use ingredients found in ordinary supermarkets. Not having to make a special trip to a natural foods store to complete a recipe is a big plus for me.

Chapters include breakfast (banana-buckwheat pancakes, cinnamon-oat scones), snacks and party favorites (spinach dip, peanut butter-chocolate chip fudge), kids’ favorites (pizza, roasted yam home fries), all-American sides (garlic mashed potatoes, sweet potato gratin), soups and salads (carrot and ginger soup, Sheila’s favorite avocado and corn salad), family classics (black-bean burgers, savory spinach pie), ethnic favorites (falafel patties, nori vegetable rolls), delightful desserts (apple pie, lavender-lemon shortbread), and everything else (peanut sauce, caramel sauce).

Gluten-Free Vegan Comfort Food reworks a lot of classics and makes a good addition to a cookbook library.  Try the recipes on the next two pages and see if you agree.
