Make a few, and you'll have a stunning meat-free and dairy-free buffet that will have your friends and co-workers begging for the recipes. This book explores the many types of bite-size munchies, from elegant to casual and savory to sweet, these small, easy-to-prepare sensations will have everyone going in for fourths. Vegan Finger Foods features more than 100 recipes for appetizers, small plates/entrees, snacks and treats that don't require a fork or any other utensil - other than your fingers. Recipes include ingredients that can be found at almost any grocery store or farmer's market - no faux meats, cheeses, or the like. There are even low-fat, soy-free, and gluten-free recipes!
"15 Most Anticipated Vegan Cookbooks of 2014, March 2014" - VegNews
"Recipe developers Steen (500 Vegan Recipes) and Noyes (Grills Gone Vegan) present a new collection of vegan and often gluten-free recipes that can be served as snacks or small plates. Like Teri Lyn Fisher and Jenny Park's Tiny Food Party!, this cookbook is visually appealing and filled with clever presentation and menu ideas. Baked jalapeños and buffalo tofu bites are so indulgent it's easy to forget they contain ingredients like arrowroot powder and nutritional yeast. VERDICT Vegans and vegetarians will embrace these party-friendly recipes. Meat eaters will, too, but they may need convincing to accept baked marinated mushroom slices as "bacon." â?? Library Journal
