Need A gluten-free Vegan Cookbook
0

7 posts in this topic

My dd wants to buy a gluten free/vegan cook book. She is 18 and a beginner at cooking. What is your favorite, with fairly easy recipes? Thanks in advance! ;)

She made gluten-free/v pizza with BRM pizza crust mix, so I think she can tackle some recipes. And great looking cupcakes too, better than the ones I made <_< (I premixed the dry ingredients, then took them to her apt and she made them without any over the phone help!).

A few websites and books to look at:

Book of Yum

Wheatless & Meatless

Gluten-Free Vegan Family

And this is a site with great gluten-free recipes, as well as SOME vegan and vegetarian recipes (but she does also use meat and animal products from time to time) : Gluten Free Goddess

Books - I own Flying Apron's Gluten-free & Vegan Baking Book (uses honey in some recipes, so not true vegan) but it does have some good recipes. A few on my "To Buy" list are : The Gluten-Free Vegan: 150 Delicious Gluten-Free, Animal-Free Recipes by Susan O'Brian, and The Gluten-Free Vegetarian Kitchen: Delicious and Nutritious Wheat-Free, Gluten-Free Dishes by Donna Klein.

Hope this helps a little bit.

Thanks for your reply. We've tried lots of Karina's recipes...all good! She wants a cookbook rather than a website. Thanks for posting your book titles. We just sub agave nectar for the honey. She is looking at veganomicon (not sure if its gluten-free) but she wants other peoples opinions before she buys one. THANKS! I will pass them on to her.

I love Baby Cakes! It is gluten free and vegan. You can buy it at most bookstores. Unfortunately it is sweets not entrees but great baking!

Check it out

One of the nice things about vegan cookbooks is they can be pretty easy (as far as non-baked items anyway) to sub out gluten containing items. Rice noodles trade in easy for "normal", make sure to use a gluten free soy sauce, use sweet rice flour to dredge tofu to panfry, and stay away from seitan etc. The How It All Vegan books (even as a meat eater, I go to these a LOT) and the Veginomicon are great. Not a straight 1 to 1 trade out, but if she want's to try these books they ARE tasty! (And have a pretty good grasp on the more "exotic" grains to start playing with as a gluten free cook.)

Just make sure she knows to read every label carefully and it because a pretty easy job to switch out some of the ingredients that need to be skipped with safer alternatives.

hey guys I'm definitely a newbie to this stuff and need a little bit of help.  I'm trying to get more healthy in my life and my family's life but it's been tough.  I'm looking for a healthy or vegan cookbook and I found this site http://www.squidoo.com/the-best-recipe-cookbook-ever-top-vegetarian-vegan-healthy-new-cookbook and I think the practical paleo: a customized approach to health by diane sanfillipo is something that i'm really interested in after reading some reviews.  I was hoping some of you guys might have some experience with the book or suggestions for me.  any help would be great!

Happy Herbivore is simple, vegan, and the majority of the recipes are either gluten-free already or easily made gluten-free.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
