New Vegan, Vegetarian Low-Carb and Gluten-Free Cookbook Recommendations
Oh Oh…UPS has just delivered a box! I hope it’s what I’ve been waiting forever for! Yup, I just opened the box and it has cookbooks!! I am sooo excited.
I took classes from Chef and Author Mark Reinfeld for Vegan Fusion Intensive classes. During those classes he was planning on putting out a book called Taste of Europe and it is now available for purchase!
This is book number ONE I have been waiting for. I can hardly wait to try some of these recipes. All of Chapter 6 is devoted to Germany and Chapter 7 with recipes such as Polish Kielbasa Soup, Transylvanian Roasted Eggplant-Stuffed Tomatoes, Kasha Varnisihkes, and Blueberry Blintzes are making my mouth water! There is so much in this one book it will keep me busy all winter. Almost all of these are gluten-free as well. And gazing through his book I find a recipe for Vegan Flan! Oh My! I had asked him to make a vegan Kuchen, I will have to spend time tonight looking through all the recipes and probably dog earring almost all of them! Can you tell I’m soooo excited to start using this cookbook?
Vegetarian Low Carb diet by Rose Elliot is a very informative book about how to eat low carb with a few recipes. I thought after I read this I would check out her cookbook that goes with this Low Carb eating.
NOTE: I have finished reading 1/2 of the book and I absolutely love it! I would consider this a VEGAN low Carb book…although she does say vegetarian because she uses alot of eggs and cream in recipes. BUT she also gives substitute recipes using tofu or soy milk in many of the recipes. I am definately going to buy her Cookbook that goes with this book! I will be making these recipes during my THRIVE High Protein, Low Carb VEGAN meal plans. I am so thankful I found this book! What I also LOVE is that with her recipes she gives the carb count and the protein count. So far I haven’t seen that in low carb recipes. AND the recipes she has listed in this book are simple yet sound very tasty! This will be a HUGE help for me.
Have you read or used any of these books above? If so I’d love for your critique on them in the comments.
