The Part-Time Vegan... a book review

by Cherise Grifoni

How many cookbooks does one person need?  That is a loaded question!  The Part-Time Vegan: 201 Yummy Recipes That Put the FUN in Flexitarian is not your (grand)mother's cookbook.  Written in a very informal voice, Cherise shares the recipes with a mix of humor and sarcasm.

Whether you are new to "veganism" or a pro, you will enjoy the wide range of recipes.  Beginning with "Veganism 101," Cherise answers questions such as: How do you start? What ingredients do you start looking for, and How do you find them?  Tofu??? What is it really?!  How many ways can you make it?

The Part-Time Vegan includes recipes for: Dips and Appetizers, Soups, Breakfast, Sides, Pastas, Grains,  and more.  It also includes dinner plans "because no one needs to know you didn't think of it yourself."

The Cucumber Cilatro Salad, Zucchini fries, and the Tangerine and Mint Salad sound wonderful.

Cherise Grifoni, a full-blown vegetarian for seven years, recently converted to veganism after discovering dairy products were causing her migraine headaches.  She is currently a senior at New York University and is a member of the university's unofficial vegan cooking club.

My Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

  Why:  I didn't enjoy the few curse words or the sarcasm in a cookbook.

  1. Thank you for the review. I try and stay away from
    Vegan cookbooks....There are probably tons of good recipes in there that are good for the body, but I just can't bring myself to change....
