News & Notes

  • I guest-posted this week on the Living Harvest blog with an article entitled Three Simple Diet-Based Changes for Your Health. If you made new year’s resolutions for 2012 – or if you didn’t! – you’ll want to check out my recommendations.
  • I’m very thankful for all the comments that are still rolling in on my last post, a response to a very unfair and poorly-researched New York Times article portraying Kansas City, my home, as a vegetarian wasteland. Let me help illustrate a little further just how off-the-mark that is: I can point out 20+ vegan meal options available within a one-minute walk of each other in Midtown Kansas City. And that’s just off the top of my head!
  • Russell James’ new DVD and e-course is now available! It’s like attending raw chef school, but in the comfort of your own home.

On to today’s post: three quick cookbook reviews, a recipe, and a giveaway.

The Vegan Slow Cooker: Simply Set It and Go with 150 Recipes for Intensely Flavorful, Fuss-Free Fare Everyone (Vegan or Not!) Will Devour by Kathy Hester

Since the weather in Kansas City has been so unseasonably warm the last couple months, I hadn’t yet delved into Kathy Hester’s all-vegan, all-slow-cooker cookbook…but the night before last, we got our first snow. Boo! Pulling out the crockpot suddenly sounds incredibly appealing.

Not only does Kathy’s book give you advice on which slow cooker to buy and how best to use it to cook simple staples like beans, grains, and broths, she provides us with dozens and dozens of truly creative slow cooker recipes. (The book also has full-color photos sprinkled throughout, which is always a plus.) Yes, there are the usual soups, stews, and sauces, but there are also curries, casseroles, pasta dishes, breakfasts, party snacks, jams, and even desserts (!) and BREADS (!!). First up for me will be the Butter Chick’n (mmm, I can almost smell it just thinking about it!) and Turkish Delight Tapioca Pudding. If you’re in the dregs of winter right now too, you better grab your own copy, cuz ya can’t borrow mine! 😛 (By the way, feel free to use this Williams Sonoma promotional code to help you save on some other great cookbooks.)

Another Fork in the Trail: Vegetarian and Vegan Recipes for the Backcountry by Laurie Ann March

I’m most assuredly not the target audience that Laurie Ann March had in mind when she wrote this unique cookbook. I’ve never camped in my life (nor do I want to!) and much prefer the comfort of my apartment to the great outdoors. Yet I still found lots to get excited about among Laurie’s recipes for trail-friendly (and thus travel-friendly) food. Packed with lightweight recipes for backcountry adventurers (or road-trip-travelers like me), Another Fork in the Trail focuses on easy-to-prepare meals and snacks.  Many of the recipes are prepped and dried at home, saving valuable time at camp or anywhere else you may travel. With recipes for desserts and baked goods in addition to the staples, the book covers menu planning and recipe creation and discusses other important considerations for vegetarian and vegan outdoor adventurers. Though you’ll find me in a motel, not a tent, on any given trip, I’m particularly loving Laurie’s recipes for hot cereal mixes, granolas, and energy bars.  I can only imagine how much I’d use this cookbook if I were an “outdoorswoman”!

World Vegan Feast: 200 Fabulous Recipes from Over 50 Countries by Bryanna Clark Grogan

This much-anticipated, globally-minded, and very ambitious cookbook from longtime vegan superstar Bryanna Clark Grogan might just be my current favorite. As you know, I’m a huge fan of ethnic flavors and international cuisines, so as soon as I heard Bryanna was coming out with a book called “World Vegan Feast,” I immediately placed it on my wish list and anxiously anticipated its release. It’s surely no surprise to Bryanna’s fans that this cookbook DELIVERS, in a big way.

I’m positively dazzled and stunned by the impressive array of dishes and cuisines represented in this book. Every recipe is labeled with its country of origin, and we’re not just talking the usual places like China, Mexico, and Italy, but truly exotic and fascinating locales like Bali, Tunisia, Peru, Iran, Sweden, New Zealand, Lebanon, and SO many more. No corner of the globe is passed over on Bryanna’s culinary adventures. All along the way, Bryanna offers numerous tips, tricks, and fun stories and tales about various dishes’ origins. When a book can make me feel like I’ve flown around the world without leaving my own kitchen, I know it’s worth calling a bible among cookbooks.

Best of all, I get to share a recipe with you today straight out of World Vegan Feast!

ANZAC cookies (or “biscuits”) originated in Australia and New Zealand as travel-friendly snacks for military men (ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps), but are popular all across the region today. I decided to make them last week since I had the tail end of a jar of golden syrup to use up. If you don’t have golden syrup, you can easily sub in agave nectar.

ANZAC Biscuits

Recipe by Bryanna Clark Grogan

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
(or a gluten-free flour blend)
1 cup packed brown sugar (I used half xylitol, half Sucanat)
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup melted vegan margarine
(I used coconut oil)
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons golden syrup or agave nectar

Preheat the oven to 325°F. In a large bowl, combine the oats, flour, sugar, coconut, and baking soda and stir to mix well. Add the margarine, water, and golden syrup or agave nectar. Stir well with a wooden spoon, mixing with your hands if necessary.

Form tablespoonfuls of dough into balls and place them 2 inches apart on two parchment-paper-lined baking sheets. Flatten the balls with your hands or a flat-bottomed glass moistened with a bit of water.

Bake the cookies for 11 to 12 minutes or until almost set. Let the cookies rest on the baking sheets for 2 to 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Yield: about 20 cookies
Per cookie: 104 calories, 4g fat (2g sat), 16.5g carbs, 2g fiber, 1.3g protein

I loved these! They’re super-chewy from the oats and coconut, a little bit caramelized from the sugar, and just sweet enough for my taste.

I bet you want to win a copy of World Vegan Feast for yourself, don’t you?

    Do you know if either of those books are available for Kindle? Having English books shipped to France is SUPER expensive, so this is the only option for me and books.

    I’m trying those cookies, they look fabulous

  15. January 13, 2012 10:39 am

    Favorite slow cooker meal would have to be a hearty chili with lots of veggies, spices, and a couple of different kinds of beans. So versatile over rice, over tortilla chips, or even over salad greens. Yum!

    Ohmygosh what an awesome trio of cookbooks! _I_ wanted to write the backcountry veg, though! I have some great ideas.

    My favorite backcountry foods: coconut butter (Alaska specific, as it won’t melt here) and premixed dried veggies including dried seaweed and a bunch of greens, carrots, onions. Super light and nutritious, add water and you’re good to go!

    Hi lovely. Just wanted to say hi. Don’t want to fill up your comment section too much, since I already won something.

    Those cookbooks look delicious. I’m not really an outdoors girl, but I was a Girls Scout when I was younger. I have found memories of making s’mores and camper’s stew, which I veganize and sometimes rawify, too.

    I think I’ve made those cookies before. Did she ever publish the recipe in a magazine? I think I made a similar recipe listed in a spa food article once.

  96. January 14, 2012 11:03 am

    A few years back, I spent a couple months in D.C, and became obsessed with pupusas. I found a place that had vegan cheese, and they were kind enough to make me vegan cheese and bean ones from scratch. The slaw and tomato salsa really bring it all together. You get one of those wrong and the magic is gone.

    One of my favorite international food dish is falafel; cooked, raw, made with chickpeas or sweet potatoes, etc. I like it with a tahini sauce on whole wheat pita, or resting on salad greens, of just as a snack food. It’s really great for traveling, too, and is often my homemade smuggled aboard an airplane meal.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

    Dry roasted edamame is my favorite on the go snack. Easy, protein-packed, and delicious.

    I haven’t used a slow cooker very much, to be honest, practically the only thing I made in one was a butternut squash lentil stew that was really good.

    Those anzac biscuits look so great Amber! I had them for the first time in Australia years ago. My friend made them and gave me her recipe but have never made them or attempted a healthier version.
