This action not only enhances flavor but makes the ingredients less chunky . Tackle Gourmet Puree Recipes. Beating boredom on a pureed diet can be a challenge.

To puree foods right in the pot or mixing bowl, an immersion blender is invaluable, especially when the food is hot. A smoothie maker is most convenient for when you only need one or two nutritious smoothie servings at a time. For eggy or cheesy foods, milk or cream can help retain the original foods' richness, without washing away the flavor or thickness. Use these liquids for foods like a crustless quiche, macaroni and cheese and rich casseroles.

Love all of the make your own flavor seitan recipes! Also the different options for homemade mimicCream ,( which is wonderful because you can't buy it anymore).
I really don't understand all of the one star reviews. The recipes that call for prepackaged foods, have the homemade equivalent in the front of the book with detailed directions on how to make it from scratch! But even if it didn't, which it definitely does, what non-vegan cookbook that calls for cream in a recipe, then tells you that you have to take a female cow, impregnate her, take away her calf, steal her milk from her breast, then skim off the cream?!? (You can come up with your own images for various cuts of meat....)
So unless you live off the land in a hut in the middle of nowhere and never purchase food at a store, I'm not understanding what the problem is.

i have tried several recipes in this book and have enjoyed most of them....the only one i don't like is their seitan which, to me, is too "fluffy" (not meaty enough).....some of the recipes that i have tried from this cookbook and enjoyed are mimic cream, quattro garlic mashed potatoes and white beans,fennel vidalia onion and roasted garlic potato latkes w/mom's applesauce..
there are several cheesemaking recipes that i want to try as i am not satisfied with any of the store-bought vegan cheeses....i recommend this book to anyone interested in trying vegan cooking

Just got my copy of Jenn Shagrin's VEGANIZE THIS a couple days ago, and it has been a delight to pour over. I understand a little why there have been some negative reviews for this book, but I highly recommend it anyway.

Assuredly, it is *not* a primer on veganism. A new vegan would probably be overwhelmed by the ambitious recipes. Nor is it a 'quick and easy weeknight vegan meals for less' kind of book. It would not fall into the 'super healthy, live to 100' vegan cookbook either. It is something quite different and hard to categorize. I wouldn't call it a haute cuisine gourmet vegan cookbook, i.e. Tal Ronnen's "Conscious Cook", though many of the recipes might qualify as gourmet. But the tone is too irreverent and off-beat and doesn't take itself too seriously for haute cuisine, and furthermore, among the offerings include a recipe for vegan twinkies, for gosh sakes, and homemade vegan doritos.

No, this is a vegan cookbook that appears to be about pushing the boundaries about what is possible in a vegan kitchen. It stands out as a singular book that begins its own category--XXtreme Vegan?

Here's some of the recipes that caught my eye:

*DIY Vegan Mozzarella That Melts
*Coconut Vinegar-Cured Tofu Scallops with Lemongrass-Basil Cream Sauce and Cilantro-Garlic Coconut Rice
*Vegan Eggplant Parmesan Raviloli with Heirloom tomato, Strawberry and Chocolate Marinara
*Roasted White Eggplant Fettucine Alfredo with Fresh Fennel and Spinach
*Quinoalenta and Rosemary Squash Chips with Wild Mushrooms and Vegan Mascarpone
*Spanish Purple Pepper Vegan Beef Stew
*Coffee-Rubbed Vegan Steak Tacos with Grilled Lobster Mushroom, Heirloom Cherry Tomato, and Corn Salsa
*Fire-Roasted Pumpkin, Hazelnut and Black Cumin Pie with Vanilla Bean Creme Fraiche

You see what I mean? This is cooking to impress. I am absolutely delighted how vegan cuisine has evolved since my college days 25 years ago, when the only vegan cookbook around was from PETA, and when you really had to sacrifice for your food ethics, and when soymilk from the co-op tasted like "bean tea". Back then I would never have foreseen what a vibrant, creative and diverse cuisine would evolve from ethical veganism. And this book is one of the happy results.

VEGANIZE THIS is a book for vegan foodies, for hobbyists and vegans who love a challenge, who like to spend a long time in the kitchen creating dishes that will absolutely astonish and make you grin. It is also for admirers of those who do. Those who would watch Vegan Iron Chef on cable tv, if such a thing existed. Yes, there are lots of ingredients, and there are many that are unfamiliar to me, and I'm a double decade veg*n. The author does love to use a product called Mimic Creme, but she also includes a homemade version. Take note that there are a good many more simple recipes that wouldn't pose any problem to a vegan cook with normal skills, that don't require arcane and hard-to-find ingredients, particularly in the dessert section, which excites me.

I may never find time to try the really mind-boggling looking recipes, but I find it very inspirational what a really brilliant and creative vegan chef can do when she puts her mind to it. In sum, I'm glad I bought this really fun, free spirited and inspirational vegan cookbook, but then I collect vegan cookbooks, particularly the offbeat ones. I will look for this author in future. She's really one to watch. Shagrin says in Veganize This! that she could write a whole book about baking vegan cakes. Miss Shagrin? We are waiting...

Jenn Shagrin has an uncanny ability to create amazing dishes with a passion, creativity and technical execution that's unparalleled. From her vegan mascarpone cheese, to her to-die-for-seitan, Jenn has been responsible for some of the best food of my life. The best news now, though, is that through her new book I can recreate those recipes in my own kitchen, including her legendary vegan Twinkies. The only thing missing from these recipes is the presence of Jenn herself - a practical God in the world of vegan cuisine. "Veganize This" is a tremendous book for vegans, vegetarians and omnivores who want a change. The recipes are clearly laid out, and written with Jenn's trademark humor. The "vegan holiday survival kit" section is worth the price alone, and the "recipes to get you laid" are certain to do just that!

There are two things I love: hugging cows and making good food. I had been trying to resist purchasing ANOTHER cookbook to add to my collection, but I loved Jenn as a blogger and ... well ... the hold out only lasted one week.

Let me tell you guys: THE BEST SEITAN RECIPES EVER. I found myself DRINKING THE BROTH WITH A SPOON while I prepared the chicken seitan. Do not let the one-star reviewers dissuade you from purchasing this cookbook. I think people must confuse making your own seitan with buying salty, expensive faux meats.

The cuisine is phenomenal, creative, and UNIQUE. I can't tell you how many recipes I have for the same basic vegan staples so to cook from this is a treat.

Here's the only caveat: the recipes do take some skills. This is not a "Beginner's Book to Cooking" - vegan or otherwise. But if you feel competent and secure in the kitchen and are looking for recipes "to get you laid" (as Jenn puts it), you will not be disappointed. My husband and I totally "Oooh" and "Ahhhh" over every recipe. And, yes, the majority of them are "meat-based." But, again - you're making your own seitan! And, obviously, these recipes are not supposed to be for dinner every night! They're treats!

Also: don't be scared off by the use of MimicCreme - it's just ALMONDS AND CASHEWS. Seriously. It's worth hunting down! If you can't find it, the replacements she recommends work just as well - they just take more prep time.
