You don’t need to learn how to cook in order to go vegan, but learning a few cooking skills can dramatically increase the variety of foods you eat, while substantially cutting your food costs.
Many new vegans make the mistake of buying a fancy gourmet cookbook as their first recipe book. These books are too complex and time-consuming to cook from every day, especially if you’re busy with work or school. You’ll be much better off if you make your first cookbook one that contains exclusively recipes intended for everyday cooking, such as Robin Robertson’s Quick-Fix Vegan and her More Quick-Fix Vegan.
The Ultimate Vegan Guide gives you all the information about how to outfit your kitchen, shop for vegan foods, and prepare simple and delicious meals that don’t require recipes.
