Description

You can eat incredibly well and make a significant contribution to saving the planet. Celine Steen's uplifting No-Waste Save-the-Planet Vegan Cookbook shows you how with delicious recipes and practical advice.

Plant-based foods have a dramatically lower negative impact on the environment than meats and animal products, as hundreds of studies have revealed. If you are a vegan and eat plant-based foods only, chances are you know this already. If you are a vegetarian or an omnivore, you probably have heard that this is one of the many reasons—quite aside from the ample health benefits of eating more plants and plant products—for adding more plant-based meals to your weekly routine.

In the pages of this inspiring and eminently practical book you will discover:
  • More than 100 earth-friendly, utterly delectable recipes, from splendid soups, substantial sides, and glorious salads to vibrant main courses and even sweet desserts, that leave no unusable waste behind and use all the parts of the produce we have grown or bought
  • Practical guidance on how to shop for and eat local produce whenever possible, even when you live in a cold climate with limited crops nearby
  • Surefire tips on how to save, store, and cook the parts of plants that you might be throwing out now
  • Advice on how to buy and store food with little to no packaging—and zero non-recyclable, non-biodegradable packaging
Imagine how good you will feel by upping your game at dinnertime and at the same time reducing your food-related carbon footprint as far as it will go.

Such a wonderful and refreshing cookbook, which is taking both no-waste and exciting recipes. I immediately found many interesting recipes I will try as soon as possible. I am especially excited about the recipes with miso, beer, and peanut butter (I don't mean in the same recipe). I like to add these ingredients into my cooking, but lately I haven't really found the right inspiration. Now I have!

I don't want to discourage anyone from getting this book, but if you are a newbie you might want to try out some simpler recipes with fewer ingredients first, so that you won't feel too overwhelmed, and get discouraged. For people like me, who are excited about mixing and matching, playing around with interesting combinations and lots of ingredients, well, this is the right book for us! I wish every recipe had a picture attached, becuse I have a hard time seeing what the end result should look like with a few of the dishes.

I received the No-Waste Save-the-Planet Vegan Cookbook as part of a NetGalley giveaway

Pretty much what it says on the tin, this selection of vegan recipes emphasize ingredients that will produce minimal waste and contribute to a more environmentally-friendly lifestyl.e.

This may go without saying, and probably expected, but these recipes heavily feature vegan substitute ingredients that may be expensive or difficult to find. If you're a vegan, this may be all well and good, but for an omnivore or vegetarian just looking for a few veggie-centric recipes, this probably isn't it. I appreciate that the recipes aren't mostly simply copycat recipes for non-vegan favorites, but instead celebrates the flavors inherent in plant-based ingredients. The art style is lovely and the breadth of recipes is impressive. If you have a well-stocked vegan kitchen, it's well worth picking up.

Full disclosure: I started a plant-based diet to improve my health, but I am not 100% vegan. I am also Celiac, so I cannot consume gluten, but these recipes were easy to adapt to fit my gluten free diet and I greatly appreciate it.

These recipes are all prefaced in a way to help you reduce wasting food, water, and energy in the kitchen which originally attracted me to this cookbook. Recipes are marked with icons to show how it's possible to make them free of gluten or soy. The other thing I like is there is an icon which tells you about the recipes which take less than 30 minutes to prep and cook - a must for people who don't have a lot of time to cook, but want to serve healthy options.

There are 100+ delicious recipes in this cookbook and I will be using some of them as staples going forward. My kids, aged 12 and 14, especially liked the Morroccan Quinoa Veggie Bowls and the Chili Mac Gratin. I loved the Everything But The Kitchen Sink Leftover Veggies Stew. I will definitely be buying this cookbook for myself!

My review is given freely in exchange for receiving the ARC from Netgalley.

This is a wonderful vegan cook book for those turning to the lifestyle due to wanting to be more sustainable for the health of the planet. Excellent advice is even provided on how to make your kitchen more waste free. Everything is shared alongside terrific photography. Probably not for new or basic cooks, more intermediate cooks to advanced will whip these up in no time. Lots of global ingredients listed so makes for use across all nations. There is even a mention of Vegemite! Australians keep it on the door of the fridge to stop it liquefying and spoiling in the heat not in a cupboard - just sayin’

Full disclosure, I did not cook anything yet as I’m putting in a new kitchen and am currently without a stove etc. I will purchase a copy of the book on release.

A fun and creative vegan cookbook that provides information on how to cut down on waste. The recipes are super creative. Three will be added to my cooking list this week alone! Can't wait to try spicy pickle waffles, Sriracha BBQ sauce, and baba ganoush soup!

I'm not sure what I expected when I opened this book, but omg... it's my dream vegan feast.
To start, plant-based foods and low waste, what a combo!

I was drooling from the first recipe (mandarin-white chocolate scones) and the gems just didn't stop: Sichuan-flavoured mushroom, sriracha bbq sauce, kimchi, smoky carrot spread, pink latte(!!), 3 types of waffles... I could probably list most of the book here because I loved the sound of it all.
I can see this becoming a firm favourite for me!

As a vegetarian who is dipping a toe into vegan eating, this book is a delight. The recipes are all beautiful and do not compromise on taste. I can see myself using this increasingly in the future

3.5 stars

Looks really lovely. Definitely a recipe book for the Vegan who loves to cook and source many ingredients.

I always find it a bit difficult to read the book via the pdf app on my laptop but it's an attractive book and some of the deserts look fabulous.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

With every single recipe, there is a tip at the bottom that will be related to the recipe in some way. There have tips on how to make better use of not only the ingredients that you use, but also the tools that you used to make the food. There are many different tips that I never thought about before and will incorporate in my kitchen. These tips also have a humorous tone and make the book more than a cookbook because the author adds her own experience with some funny side points in a lot of the tips.

There are many wonderful recipes in this book. The photos of the food make everything look appetizing. I have to say I would have liked to see more photos of the food because for me I want to see it and then look at the recipe because what it looks like makes me want to try that recipe. So it would have been better if there were more photos in the book but the photos that were there were very eye-pleasing.

I'm not sure if I am going to try any of the recipes simply because a lot of the recipes have ingredients that I don't normally buy and are too expensive. Other recipes... well for a lot of the recipes there were ingredients that I just don't eat. For example, a lot of the recipes included beer and I don't use alcohol in my cooking. Even if I don't follow the recipe exactly there are recipes in here that stirred my creativity to try something different. I'm sure everyone will find a recipe that they will love, as there are many different ideas.

I think this book is well suited for vegans and non-vegans. It includes many good planets sailing tips as well as mouthwatering recipes.

Great book that may take a few people time to get use to. I love the concept of this book however I could see where some might not be able to appreciate what the author is trying to accomplish.

I really enjoyed how most of the recipes were quite easy to do. Sometimes we see vegan recipes that have complicated ingredients or are really expensive, but this one was amazing.
I am truly going to try some and I will also try to save the planet while doing so.
I am amazed and it is a great guide to everybody who wants to start the vegan progress

Plant based eating has grown rapidly in popularity in recent years, due both to the boom in veganism and an increase in omnivores like me seeking to reduce their overall meat intake for the sake of the environment.

I wouldn't describe this as an entry level book into plant based eating. Some of the recipes are quite complex,  at least for a reluctant cook like me. The author also calls for some fairly obscure ingredients, at least for the uninitiated. However,  if you do manage to track down a supply of agave nectar and pomegranate molasses (tip: in the UK, just take a trip to Waitrose or Sainsburys), then these ingredients appear in a number of recipes and so certainly won't go to waste.

As you might expect from the title,  Celine Steen excels at suggesting how the leftovers from one meal can be incorporated into other recipes. The book is also scattered with one hundred hints and tips covering how to extend the shelf life of the food you buy, substitution ideas if there are ingredients in the recipe that you don't have or don't like,  and more.

Recommended for the slightly more experienced cook (!!) looking to reduce or eliminate the amount of meat in their diet.

I love a good vegan cookbook! I’ve been vegan about 6-7 years now and I still love finding new recipes to try out. This book has so many new recipes I’ve never tried and I love how it is all about reducing waste in the kitchen
