Rated 5 out of 5 by from Funny and helpful I love that this cookbook makes cooking less intimidating while also giving substitutes for things if you can’t afford it or don’t have an ingredient on hand!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious and yummy This is more than just a cookbook. The photography is amazing and the text is hilarious. It's so uplifting and refreshing to read a vegan cookbook that is so casual and downright funny. I love opening up this book to get vegan inspiration, and a few good laughs. I haven't tried all of the recipes, but the ones I have made have been phenomenal! #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book is responsible for changing the way I eat! I bought this book about two months ago - and have since bought the other two by Thug Kitchen. Easy recipes, with things often already in your cupboard. Fresh foods that don't take forever to prepare. Grocery shopping is a pleasure now! And makes you laugh all the way through!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not THAT Fast, but Still Awesome I meant to review this over a year ago, really have loved the few things I have made from this. Love the writing, love the images but I don't find the recipes faster or easier than the OG Thug Kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Delicious Recipes! I like the format they've chosen for this book, the recipes I've tried so far are just as great as in previous books. You'll have a chance to try different flavours, and styles of food than you had before. And it's worth it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not easier or faster than 1st thug Kitchen If you looked at the first thug kicthen book and though wow this can get easier with Thug kitchen 101, prepare to be deceived. These recipes ask for more ingredients that are unique to some recipes. Thug kitchen original used most of the same ingredients making for a more economical pantry. Also being from Northern Ontario, it may be hard to find all these ingredients. They also don't seem all that faster. Don't get me wrong the recipes are still great, but not faster or easier than the original thug kitchen. I think I would maybe only used half of these recipes, unlike the entire original book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hilarious read Hilarious. Food is delicious. Food is heavily based on vegetarian cuisine, which is fine by me since I'm all about the healthy eating. This is the second book of theirs that I have received from a friend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Little Short The book was quite funny and kept me quite entertained. I though there could have been more recipes but the ones they did have were fairly simple and used ingredients you could by at your local grocery store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This book is so useful! This is the ultimate vegan cookbook. I constantly cook out of this book, the recipes are delicious, fairly cheap and easy to adapt. ( I like to use real cheese not Nooch) without sacrificing flavour. This makes vegan food approachable for the average person, wholesome ingredients and tons of knowledge thrown in.
Date published: 2017-08-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great intro to plant based cooking! This is the third book I have bought in the Thug Kitchen series. I am not vegan but try to cook plant-based a couple times a week. While I haven't made too many recipes yet the ones I have made have been great. I love the selection of drink and cocktail recipes that are featured in this version! Can't wait for summer to try a bunch of them out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yum! Love this book! The recipes are delicious, and fast to make. Plus the writing is hilarious. The tacos al pastor are a favourite in our house for sure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Funny, but a little Unhealthy A fun cook book to have, and helpful for fast as f*ck recipes, especially if you're a student / not much of a star in the kitchen. Some recipes remind me why people think eating vegan is unhealthy, which it really does not have to be. If you stay away from "alternatives" like vegan cheese and the like, and don't rely on pasta and bread, plant based diets are fun and actually good for your body. Again, funny and fun, but not an everyday use for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! Quick and easy recipes...I already have most of the ingredients... just wish they offered alternatives to all of the soy based stuff.... I like it and all but not everything needs soy sauce!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast As F#ck Cooking like a thug takin numbers and dishing out goodness. Funny laugh out loud book. Every cook book should been this funny

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flavourful recipes but not easy to follow... Amusing read but recipes not easy to follow for new home cooks. Made the one-pot chickpea biryani which was flavourful but had to reduce the amount of broth. Snickerdoodles were good but oven times were not quite right. Sweet glazed winter vegetables was easy to follow and tasted great. If you are looking for simple, flavourful vegetarian recipes then this book is it. However, if you are after great pics or are a new cook, I would not recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Overall I liked this cookbook - although I didn't find the receipes as good as some of the recipes in the other Thug Kitchen books.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Bit of A Miss Unfortunately, I wasn't as excited for some of these recipes as I was for other recipes in the other Thug Kitchen books. I had my hopes set pretty high, though. I haven't really liked the recipes I've used from this one so far.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Thug kitchen The writing in this book is fun which i feel is the hook for many readers. A lot of the recipes are full of gluten and contain a lot of bread, pasta or artificial meat. When eating vegan or vegetarian my preference is that they be vegetable or plat based.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Boyfriend loved this gift #plumreview Got this for my boyfriend as a christmas present and he really enjoyed the witty banter and simple to follow recipes. The bean taco mix was a great recipe! Flautas are also a hit. I would recommend to anyone looking to try vegetarian recipes in an easy and fun way.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from might try My friend recommended it to me. Maybe I shall try it since I'm not a great cook
Date published: 2016-12-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast as f*ck The food is delicious. We made the quinoa taco mix last night and it was a hit at the party. For inexperienced cooks it really helps you burst out of your comfort zone. A word to the wise, the recipes will take much longer than the recommended cook time because it doesn't include prep.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Back again! I just love how these guys take the pressure off cooking! My girlfriend is gaining confidence as we make more and more of their recipes as we laugh following their instructions and reading the write ups. I have bought 5 copies of this for Christmas gifts for my friends!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thug Kitchen I really like this book and found most of the recipes I have tried were easy to make and turned out well. I prefer the first book to this one but it is still worth having!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This cookbook has really been helpful with providing easy recipes to transition myself to a plant-based diet. There are many yummy and quick recipes to choose from. I have loved all the recipes I have tried at home!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Delicious but... I picked up this cookbook because I love my first Thug Kitchen but the recipes are time consuming. Love this one because it contains a lot of options that are much faster. But many of the recipes call for making more than 1 thing so sometimes it's not as fast as the authors allude it is.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from okay Easy to follow recipes but not as good as the other thug kitchens
Date published: 2016-11-30
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Find something else the schtick of this book (loads of expletives, slang that would seem silly if the authors were to use it in person) is tiresome and masks some pretty poor recipes.
Date published: 2016-11-26
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Another great Thug Kitchen book I am a faithful fan of the Thug Kitchen tri-fecta. While I had high hopes for this one, I did find there were fewer recipes I was excited about as opposed to their last book (Party Grub)- just a little lacklustre in that regard. One great bonus in this one is the excellent breakdown of timing for recipes - so often you find a great recipe, but it takes you all night to execute. Thug Kitchen makes it fast as f**k for those who are strapped for time! Would recommend for students and folks who have just moved out of their parents' house and have no idea how to cook and/or budget their time for meals!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great Love the short easy to follow receipes! This book is also great for first year students living on campus.
