It was listed in the '2017 upcoming cookbooks thread'

I hope they have done their math ... The problem with MOST of the "frugal / cheap / ultracheap" cookbooks is that they do NOT ever reach the levels you need with respect to
* good protein/carbohydrate/fat-balance AND sufficient energy (near the standard 2000kcal per day!)
* suffient levels of calcium, iron, zinc etc per day
* sufficient levels of B-vitamins and other essentials ...

I haven't had time to write much on my own cookbook where I really DO THAT MATH! For a 5-week-mealplan ... :-/ But someday :)

Yah, I really love frugal cooking books and blogs. I found a bunch of youtube videos but sometimes I just get depressed because they show how much food they got with 20$ and it's just not a reality here. Produce is often way more expensive then they list even with shopping around/discount racks etc.

I will still likely try and get a copy to read though, sometimes they have decent tips. The Cheap Vegan Zines are honestly still my fav though.

I've recently fallen in love with Tibetan food, so good plant based (and several gluten free) recipes would be dreamy. And I can never have enough vegan cheese or simply fermentation recipes.

I'm one of those people who can't go to heavy on the carbs, so I'd love a low-carb vegan book as well.

Do you have any recommendations for good vegan-friendly Tibetan cookbooks, even if they aren't entirely plant based?

I wish there were more books like Vedge, but written by home cooks rather than chefs, and tested very well.


Co-signed! I love Vedge, I think it's incredibly inspiring (gonna salt-roast some golden beets this weekend, as a matter of fact), but a book that's just as inventive written by a normal person would be a game changer. Or if these people would just get some testers! You're publishing a book, for crying out loud, make sure it works. /end rant.

Have you all checked out Plenty More by Yotam Ottolenghi? It's vegetarian not vegan but it seemed a lot like Vedge to me. It's better imo than his earlier books.

I picked it up and I didn't think it was nearly as good as plenty more.

I haven't, no! I'll have to check it out, thanks for the recommendation.

Plenty More is also much more vegan friendly than Plenty.
