Recently, an all organic, all vegan Mexican restaurant opened in my city, which for me equals heaven, but their food is too expensive to eat very often. The last thing I probably needed was another vegan cookbook, but I couldn’t resist this one.The author is a Venezuelan-American vegan chef, and she writes in a very engaging way. She’s funny and personable and I love the way she slips in Spanish words; she makes the subject seem very accessible. She’s co-author of three other great vegan c [...]

Terry Hope Romero is a wonder and a wizard. This really fabulous cookbook makes it possible for everyone to eat really spectacular Latin food with gusto. It is impossible that anyone would miss eating animals when served food like this. I have too many favorites, but I came across a freezer full of hominy once and worked my way through the posoles, seitans, sofritos, pot piesl incredibly flavorful and unusual. This book contains many regional variations on your favorite bean dishes: Venezuela-st [...]

Finally a vegan cookbook that has the types of foods I grew up eating! Everything I've made so far has turned out excellent (though I did make a few tweaks here and there). This is perhaps not the best book for someone who is a novice cook in general, and a novice to latin foods in particular. Unfortunately, I've found that all the Romero and Moskowitz books are sprinkled with errors and steps missing here and there, so I'm on the lookout when I use them. But these are genuinely great recipes so [...]

I'm not very familiar with Latin foods, but when I saw that my library (surprisingly) had a copy, I decided to check it out. My husband & I cooked from this book for 2 weeks for a challenge on another website and I'm so happy we did. A lot of the recipes are component recipes which require the preparation of 1-2 other recipes. However, a lot of these are simple dressings you can throw together fairly quickly and others are very easy but they just take more time and are easier to prepare on t [...]

Terry makes Latin food approachable for vegans and non-vegans alike. She does a wonderful job of explaining the specialized ingredients of both vegan and Latin cookery. Her recipes are quite varied in terms of difficulty -- you can easily throw together a lovely salsa with pantry ingredients from this book OR prepare a spectacular batch of tamales on a Sunday afternoon. I"m really excited about how she explores the commonalities between traditional Latin food and vegan/vegetarian cooking. Anybod [...]

This collection of 200 vegan recipes includes offerings from Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. You'll find updated favorites like tostones and mofongo (Puerto Rico), stuffed arepas (Venezuela and Colombia), tamales and tortas (Mexico), ropa vieja (Cuba), ceviche (Peru), and more.If you're new to vegan and / or Latin cuisine, fear not! [...]

So far: Good book if you like things mild. I plan on making lots more from this book, but I'm going to have to remember to adjust the recipes, because I like things spicy. Red Chile Sauce: I've had this book since it came out and haven't used it, but I was watching Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and someone made a chile sauce (I keep typing "child" sauce), so I pulled it out to see if there was a similar recipe in here. This is good, but I really need to find some hotter peppers this time. This ha [...]

This is one of my FAVOURITE cookboks! Every recipe I have ever made from it has been absolutely 100% mindblowingly delicious. Yes, they can be time consuming, but for mindblowingly delicious results it is totally worth it! When I first flicked through it I was very disappointed with the lack of photos and the photos it did include looked unprofessional and unappetizing. This is the only negative about this book though if you search #vivavegan on Instagram you can gain some delicious inspiration [...]

Favorite recipe is the arroz con seitan - I’ve remade it multiple times

4.5 stars---------I just ate my first few recipes from this book and HOLY MOLY I'm impressed. I wish this weren't a library book, because I'll be very sad to return it. (And I'm already trying my best not to get food smudges on the pages.)This book gets docked half a star because of the layout. Some recipes go on over the fold, so you have to flip a page. That can be tricky business when you're up to your ears in mole sauce. And there aren't nearly enough photos, but maybe that's a good thing, a [...]

I didn't actually make any of the recipes in this book, so this review is only based on my read through of the recipes. I noticed that many of them were reliant on meat substitutes like seitan and TVP. I'm not really a big fan of those for every meal I eat. I kinda thought that aspect was a cop out. The other unfavorable ingredient that I saw used in many recipes is liquid smoke, which is pretty much a bunch of chemicals. Vegan eating is health conscious so I don't understand the inclusion of th [...]

After only a few pages, I already new I needed to own this book. Latin food has always been vegetarian friendly, but it's nice to have some quick and yummy vegan recipes up my sleeve as well. Romero is a humerous food writer and includes a lot of great information about ingredients that may not be familiar to those living outside of the South and Southwest. The information on how to prepare and roll tamales is invaluable. Illustrations are included as well as some lovely photos in the middle of [...]

After making about 6 recipes from this book and reading over many others, I can say that this book is AWESOME and I love it. So far, I have made the Oaxacan mole, the grilled seitan and the temped nuggets, as well as the brown sugar limeade, the fried plantains and the arroz recipe. All were easy to follow and understand, even if you know very little about Latin cuisine.Romero has done a fabulous job gathering recipes and updating traditional Latin meals to fit into the vegan diet. There are sev [...]

Most of the latino staples I grew up with (tortillas, rice, beans, etc) have always been vegan. I never thought about them that way and, let's face it, always wanted them on the side of a giant piece of carne asada, but they were vegan! I actually really like this book. It's given me some excellent ideas, helped me make some wonderful vegan empanadas and offers up some pretty good dishes from all over latin america. My only issue is with this book is how reliant so many of the recipes seem on me [...]

This book drove me nuts. I would sit down to look at recipes and find myself studying the ethnohistory of _______________ (tamales, enchiladas, churros, whatever). Don't do that to me. I am a reader. I have to read the cereal box if it's in front of me. However, when I'm picking recipes, I NEED to pick recipes. Write a history of food as its own non-fiction story or put it at the end of the recipe. It's a cookbook. Put the ingredients and recipe first.The other part is the shear intimidation fac [...]

Is it wrong to rate a cookbook before I've even attempted to make anything out of it? Probably, but so what. After skimming through with joy, I give this book 5 stars just based on how I excited I feel to eat things that come from this book. I've been in an uninspired cooking rut, and this seems to be just what I need. The recipes all look creative and fun, the pictures look delicious, and I seriously can't wait to make this stuff. Tamales, pupusas, empanadas, soups, sides, tasty desserts, etc e [...]

This cookbook is not meant for the kitchen novice. This book would be good for someone with more ease in the kitchen (and more kitchen utensils and food stuff), but for someone who sees cooking as the necessary evil to being able to eat good food more cheaply, this is not the book for them. Every recipe I tried came out disappointing; again, this may have had more to do with my own lack of experience/ease in the kitchen than the actual recipes themselves (which look amazing. I would be much more [...]

Highly impressed.I am by no means a vegan (or vegetarian), but I am somebody who wants to eat less meat. Too often in the cookbooks that I've read in the past, there has been this elitist attitude for meat-eaters and non. I'm happy to say that this book does not have that problem, nor does it suffer from a lack of seasoning or spices!Ms. Romero has done a fantastic job of showing the ropes of ethnic vegan eating from a very traditionally meat-loving cuisine. Kudos are deserved for making seitan [...]

So the co-author of the massive vegan cookbook "Veganomicon" has come out with a Latin Vegan cookbook, and I will say that it is pretty impressive how she changes a very meat-heavy food culture into veganism. This being said, I wasn't a huge fan of the cookbook because of its reliance on TVP (textured vegetable protein), which I have no desire to eat. I did however think the Mango and Jicama Salad, the Chimichurri Baked Tofu, Zesty Orange Mojo Baked Tofu, Sweet and Nutty Roasted Stuffed Plantain [...]

Chimichurri sauce: yessss. Especially used in tofu scramble.Peanut sauce: decent.Steamed seitan: easy but I suspect the dry:liquid ratio may be way off. That or I did it completely wrong.Citrus mojo tofu: garlicky, salty, good with oranges from my tree. Sofrito: I thought I knew about sofrito, but clearly I didn't. Slow-cooked and dripping with oil is definitely the way to go. Now I want to make gorditas, arepas, enchiladas, bread pudding with guava paste

I'm still kicking myself for having bought the kindle version of this cook book. I prefer the actual book when it's something I can reference and use over and over again. BUTis was my first vegan cook book and I chose the kindle version in case I hated it. WELL, I love it. LOVE IT. I haven't made all of the recipes yet but everything I have made so far has been divine. I highly recommend it.[Gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I haven't made every single dish yet].

This book was everything I've been craving since becoming vegan. I live in Florida, so I'm surrounded by food with latin influences. The recipes are comforting and delicious. It is easy to follow. There is a nice insert with pictures. I would have loved to see more pictures, but in terms of the content, this is one of my favorite vegan books.

I was looking for recipes that are vegan after my SIL visit, when we were reduced to a falafel place, asian food, and pasta for options--unfortunately, this is not what I was looking for. This cookbook uses a meat substitute in recipes rather than having recipes that are developed for vegans--which is a reasonable strategy, but not one that resonates for me.

So far I've made six recipes, and they're all delicious winners. This book is a definite keeper. The only problem is if you live in a city that doesn't have a Latino community and therefore few Latino culinary specialties (like here in Antibes, France, boo), you'll have a hard time making some of the recipes. Otherwise, I definitely recommend this, your life is incomplete without it!

So many delicious recipes. Not many photos, but it's crammed full of recipes instead so it's ok. I literally want to make every single recipe. I've been meaning to buy a copy since I'm a fan of her cookbooks, but I borrowed this from the library, will definitely be getting my own copy, the tamale recipes alone are worth it.

The low stars is def not for the recipes of this cookbook. The first thing I made in it (coconut rice) I sat it in front of my husband and he said "This isn't how my mother makes it". It was then I decided never to make Latin food again.

Terry Hope Romero takes Latino food and makes it all VEGAN with delicious results. I gave it a four because she doesn't have enough Mexican recipes in here. :) Her vegan pozole/menudo is outstanding!

Another brilliant cookbook by THR here. Really good take on classic Latin food with a great vegan twist. Excellent stuff. Worth it alone for the vegan Cuban Sandwich recipe and method. REALLY wonderful. Again, highly recommended!

I recently added this book to my collection and have loved almost everything I've tried from it. When I went plant-based, I thought that I'd have to give up my beloved Mexican food with all its cheese, but this book provides some wonderful recipes for my favorites such as pozole and tamales.

This book relies heavily on meat substitutes, white flour and oils! I avoid all of those things! The recipes probably would taste good but are not very healthy! I prefer The Happy Herbivore books!
