Vegan cookbooks nowadays are such an embarrassment of riches. There’s so many out there – the latest one that I’ve received for review is The Happy Herbivore Cookbook by Lindsay Nixon.
To be honest, when I first saw the recipe for Baked Tofu Parmesan, I thought how different can it really be from the Crispy Baked Tofu that I’ve already been making for so many years. I was surprised and delighted with the results.
It totally tasted like parmesan, with the tofu it’s more like a chicken type of parmesan (but I bet it would be just as good with eggplant). I served it up on a bed of spaghetti squash.
The secret seems to be the vegan parmesan. Early on, I must have tried a brand that was not that tasty and was a little turn off by it. But the flavor and texture of Galaxy Nutritional Foods Vegan Grated Topping “Parmesan Flavor” is quite good. The tofu just by itself seems like any other baked tofu. But combined with the marinara sauce, vegan parmesan and spaghetti squash – it’s delicious.
Flipping through the rest of the cookbook, the recipes cover many of the same types of dishes as other vegan cookbooks as well as dishes that I already make and love. But it’s always interesting to see how other people make their version of a certain food. And as with the Baked Tofu Parmesan, it’s possible to learn something new.
To see for yourself, I’m giving away a copy of The Happy Herbivore Cookbook.
