Book Review: Vegan Diner

by Shea Robinson, Fiction Department, Central Library

Vegan Diner
Julie Hasson

Being a long-time vegan and ambitious cook, I’m always on the hunt for interesting cookbooks to give me fresh ideas for meals and snacks. While the following cookbook is not one I’d reach for on a daily basis, it’s one of my favorites because it offers recipes that are fairly unique to vegan cookbooks.

Vegan Diner tackles the challenging task of recreating classic diner dishes into vegan comfort food. Covering courses from breakfast to dessert, this cookbook offers animal-friendly alternatives with simple recipes. The layout is crisp and stylish with striking full-page color photos illustrating the recipes within a retro diner design.

Some of my favorite dishes from this cookbook include Orange Cornbread Waffles, Biscuits & Creamy Sage Gravy, Diner Donuts, and Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding. This is a fantastic cookbook for vegetarians, vegans, and those omnivores who simply desire to switch things up a bit. Vegan Diner is jam-packed with recipes of delicious food that can be enjoyed while eating compassionately.
