    1. I bought this because of the “cheap” description, but much to my delight most of these recipes are easy to make too, and many look incredibly delicious.I rely too much on convenience foods, which are sometimes less healthy and are almost always more expensive than making things from scratch. I’m fortunate to live in an area with many wonderful vegan restaurants, but it’s expensive to eat out, so I’m trying to spend less on my meals at home and save most of the splurges for when I do di [...]

    2. I have yet to make any recipes from this book, but just browsing through them they seem like they'll be decent. The other info in the book is pretty much right on the mark, and definitely provides good and practical advice for those vegans who need to budget, if you haven't already figured it out. I also appreciated the section titled "No Skimping Allowed," which names certain ingredients you should NEVER go the cheap way on, such as extra virgin olive oil, buying pure maple syrup, no imitation [...]

    3. This book is good - I recommend it. So far most of the recipes I've tried have been winners and several have been added to our frequently cooked recipe rotations.Below are our comments on the recipes we've made so far.Cheezee Sauce - We made this as a sub-recipe for some other recipe. I thought Chreese (from Roads End Organic) is better, I would probably just make that moving forward instead of the sauceAlmost Instant Chickpea Tomato Soup - This was really good! the only bad thing was that even [...]

    4. I have been on a cookbook kick lately, and although this one of the least flashy of the bunch (certainly not as hip or cool as Veganomicon), this is one of my favorites. Even though this book has no pictures, it has some simple recipes that do not cost much. The recipe that most made me giggle was "Cheapamole." As Ms. Robertson reiterates, avocados can be expensive, so her unique combination of frozen peas, white beans and other ingredients created an inexpensive faux-mole that can be served to [...]

    5. 1/31/2011 - I made two recipes from this last night and invited two friends to be my guinea pigs. The Baked Mac and Cheeze recipe looked quite simple but it had a fairly long list of ingredients. To avoid getting flustered, a couple of hours before I started cooking I laid out the ingredients on the kitchen table, measuring some, and making the bread crumbs. When I did start cooking I felt like I was on a TV show where it looks so effortless because all the prep work has been done! Coming out of [...]

    6. This gem of a cookbook from Robin Robertson starts off with some really helpful tips on how to save money on your grocery shopping and menu planning.`Recipe Sections are divided into Basics, Soups/Stews, Salads, Noodles, Skillet Dishes, Bakes/Casseroles, Pizzas/Burgers/Sandwiches, Slow-Cooker Dishes & Desserts.I've been cooking from this book for less than a month and have seen a decrease in my weekly grocery bill. Everything I've tried so far has been pretty yummy.~French Lentil Chili~Smoky [...]

    7. I'm not ready to take this one back to the library. There are some great meatless recipes- just what I was looking for. Handy Hummus p.44,Pot of Beans p.46, Rice Two Ways p.47, Southwestern Black Bean and Corn Chowder p. 68 (really good),Summer Garden Soup p. 69, Black & White Bean Chili p.78, Salsa Rice and Red (used Black) Beans p. 132 Curried Red Bean Pilaf with Walnuts and Raisins P. 133,Coconut Curry Rice p. 134, Three Bean Loaf p. 155, Very Veggie Burgers p. 179

    8. I just reviewed this on the examiner site today. Lots of great recipes and good tips for saving both time and money.

    9. I've been vegan for 5 years, & I'm a frugal minimalist to boot. I cook A LOT, & have used many a vegan cookbook. This is hands down the best vegan cookbook I've ever used. It uses inexpensive, accessible ingredients, has realistic prep & cooking time, & interesting & delicious meals. I think I've made nearly every recipe in here & the few "bad" ones were only mediocre, not terrible. It also has the absolute best seitan & sausage recipes I've ever made. I literally hav [...]

    10. Practical RecipesUsing everyday ingredients to make easy and tasty looking vegan recipes at home. Some convenience foods like canned goods used but overall practical recipes that anyone might enjoy.

    11. I have several vegan/vegetarian cookbooks, but I know that this one will be my go-to. The premise behind this cookbook is that every recipe ends up costing $2 or less per serving. However, this does assume that you have a decently stocked pantry already. For example, if you are going to be making the Stovetop Cheezee Mac but don't already have nutritional yeast, that alone will set you back about $13.I've only tried a handful of recipes from the hundreds that are in this book, but I have not bee [...]

    12. The beganning part about how to save ect I knew most of but for those who arejust venturing into the saving money and cooking I think it was good info to know and have on hand. I like how the recipes are easy and basic and made with basic staples most people have on a regular basis in their home. Even for meat eaters who's out to try something new it has stuff they can easily make and try out with without having to go to whole foods and such stores looking for that random ingredient you've never [...]

    13. incredible: great for vegans, nonvegans - it's a really useful book for whenever I'm broke as hell and that's most of the time. and the food tastes wonderful. I use Molly Katzen's work as well but find her Moosewood recipes more complex and time consuming. Robertson senses time - and economizes it as well. That may sound "capitalistic" of me but hell, I work a lot and cooking taketh time. another great thing is - this is fantastic for the omnivore with the sort of classic "americana" taste. old [...]

    14. This book lives up to it's title- these are fast, easy, and cheap vegan recipes that everyone will love. You can save a lot of money because most of the ingredients are items that you probably already have at home (if not, they can be easily located at your local supermarket). I liked this so much that I bought a copy to keep at home! Highlights are the stove top mac and 'cheese' and pumpkin cake with chocolate glaze.

    15. Great cookbook! All the recipes so far have been wonderful (except the one I messed up on, totally my fault). Has great money saving tips that should have been obvious to me, but were not. Her seitan recipes are outstanding. After a previous attempt to make it myself, I had given up, but Robin's recipes keep it simple. This is going to be my go-to cookbook for a long time and has definitely helped me save money on vegan food.

    16. I really liked this book. This is, obviously, a book about saving money on food, and it gives great recipes that cut back on cost without cutting back on variety, fun, or flavor. The top of each page give a approximate amount per serving, with nothing coming out to more than $2 per serving. After the recipe, there are sometimes "splurges" or substitutions that would make the meal more expensive, but might be worth it to some people.I will definitely be cooking from this book!

    17. I love the <$2 per serving recipes. All delicious and easy and mostly using ingredients I already have in my house. Very encouraging and friendly tone makes this cookbook even more enjoyable.Have made savory sausage and peppers, farfalle with cabbage and white beans, hearty lentil stew - all yummy.

    18. Many vegan books are great and creative, but they ask for ingredients that are quite expensive. Also, since many vegetables have gone up in price since the publishing of other vegan books, it makes it almost impractical to anyone on even a moderate budget. This book is both simple in preparation and the inexpensive ingredients can be found pretty much in any standard American grocery store.

    19. Only made one recipe so far but love how she makes everything from simple ingredients. Looking through the others, I found plenty to try. Thriftiness in her approach is just an added bonus. Edit: I've now made the seitan loaf and the cheezy sauce -- very good and balanced takes on staple-type recipes.

    20. This was a library book and I had to take a photo of the one recipe I'd planned to try because I had to return it. The recipes definitely are inexpensive and I look forward to owning the book so I can try more recipes. I may change the rating when I can try out some of them.

    21. Some of the advice seemed pretty obvious, like make big bathces of dried beans or brown rice. But the tips on where to buy products and the recipes were good. Many vegan cookbooks do not factor in diabetics--

    22. Only deducted a star because there were no recipes in the ENTIRE bookbut can't wait to whip up all these delicious and affordable vegan creationswide range of cuisines which I really appreciate.

    23. Lots of recipes I want to try, and she gives good tips on how to make nice food cheaply. No pictures, which is a little annoying as I am not a cook and dont really know what half of these things are supposed to look like.

    24. The French Lentil Chili is easy and delicious (recipe here: kahakaikitchen/20) and I have several others tagged to make. Next up Lemony Garlic Chickpea Patties I think. A good guide to easy vegan recipes on a budget.

    25. It is what it says: low-cost (and mostly easy) vegan recipes. I cannot stop eating and desiring the Corned Seitan And Cabbage (I modify the recipe because I don't have a slow cooker). Wish I had a personal chef who could make that dish for me every day lol.

    26. I tried and loved the following recipes:- Chocolate Blueberry Crumble - so good and so easy!- Chocolate Surprise Brownies- Lemony Garlic Chickpea Patties- Pumpkin Spice Cake with Chocolate Glaze- Sesame Shortbread Cookies- Faux Parm- Wheatballs
