Winner of the 2003 Veg News Award for Favorite Cookbook! Sarah and Tanya are long-time friends and self-described "lazy vegetarians" whose love of animals made them want to completely eliminate animal products from their diet. Their decision to "go vegan" was a challenge not only to their palate but to their way of thinking about food and nutrition. With some imagination and a little know-how, the transition to a vegan lifestyle can be painless. And as Sarah and Tanya demonstrate in How It All Vegan!, vegan food is fabulous food, full of flavour and all the nutrients you need.
The book's chapters include entrees, soups, sauces, breads, salads, and desserts; there are recipes for blue banana muffins, mushroom barley stew, chocolate cheese-less cake, tofu jerky, and vegan versions of ice cream, mayonaisse, and Sloppy Joes. There are even instructions on turning other aspects of your life vegan: recipes for cosmetics, hair products, pet treats, and household cleaners.
With its campy '50s style illustrations, unusual concoctions, and cool, punky sensibility, How It All Vegan! will tempt readers to animal-proof their diet and join the Vegan Empire.
An incredibly cool cookbook loaded with useful information. You'll find unique and delicious recipes ranging from the basics (Holy Moly Hummus, Easy Breezy Cheese Sauce, Savory Shepherd's Pie) to the extraordinary (Faux Eggs Benedict, Garlic Dill Cream Cheese, Homemade Tofu Jerky, Chocolate Upside Down Pudding Cake). Not only are the recipes awesome, but they've also included several informative chapters on non-vegan ingredients and their sources, simple recipes for make-at-home natural household cleaners, body and facial care products, and a mind-boggling list of 45 things to use with vinegar.
