The Gentle Chef Cookbook
Vegan Cuisine for the Ethical Gourmet
by Skye Michael Conroy
The Gentle Chef Cookbook is a TEXT-ONLY working kitchen formulary containing over 230 delicious vegan recipes for creating a wide variety of plant-based foods.
Chapter 1 offers detailed, step-by-step instructions for creating a variety of seitan products, including moist and tender roasts, sandwich deli slices, sausages, satays (shish kabob), ribz, meatballs and so much more. Seitan (say-tan) or wheat meat, is an amazingly versatile, protein-rich meat alternative made from wheat gluten.
Chapter 2 addresses the basics and preparation of the soy-based meat replacements: TVP (textured vegetable protein), tofu and tempeh.
Chapter 3 offers detailed, step-by-step instructions for creating a variety of non-dairy foods including vegan butter, heavy cream, sour cream, whipped cream and an assortment of vegan cheeses.
Chapters 4 through 10 offer detailed, step-by-step instructions for creating hearty breakfast and brunch dishes; appetizers, dips and spreads; sandwich fillings; American and international dinner entrees and accompaniments; soups, broths and stews; salads and dressings (including the best egg-free mayonnaise); sauces and gravies; and scrumptious vegan desserts.
*I’d like to correct a recipe credit omission in my Gentle Chef Cookbook. The concept and instructional text for the Stuffed Potato Poppers appetizer can be credited to Stephanie Bly Sulzman. My apologies for this oversight.
