Overview

Are you craving a way to eat killer food without killing yourself, animals, or the planet? Is your brain bloated from watching cooking shows that present recipes you’re never, ever going to make? Have you been searching for a way to prove to your friends that vegan food can be just as delicious, hearty, and satisfying as the meaty meals they’re accustomed to? Then this is the book for you.

Of his journey from watching food porn on his parents’ couch to cooking in Hollywood kitchens to becoming vegan, author Brian Patton writes:

My roommate said he didn’t know what made me a bigger loser: that I was painstakingly preserving episodes of 30 Minute Meals or that I was trying to conceal their existence by labeling them Star Trek....Once I discovered that I could not only survive but thrive without taking the life of another being, I was sold. I was a vegan. For good.

And that’s how an “ordinary dude” became the Sexy Vegan and started creating “extraordinary food” with a decidedly real-meal appeal. On every page, Brian proves that seriously good food needn’t be too serious.

Publishers Weekly
This decidedly unpreachy vegan collection comes from the founder of thesexyvegan.com and creator of vegan cooking instruction videos that have become YouTube sensations. Although he can try too hard (do we really need to know that the word wafting makes him think “about fanning farts into my brothers’ faces”?), overall it’s a really funny book, which isn’t something most cookbooks—especially not most vegan cookbooks—can claim. Recipes are simple and approachable, and they cover everything from breakfast (Mostest Ultimate-est Breakfast Sandwich; Hangover Hash) to entrees such as Mexicali quinoa with black lentils and Pretend chipotle sausages and jambalaya. There are cocktails and salads and soups and meat substitutes (the obligatory My Balls recipe for faux meatballs) and more, too. The recipe titles alone are worth reading: The Seitan Worshipper, for example, and Not Yo Mama’s Cheeze Sauce—as the head note explains, “Say the first two words of the above title really fast... see what I did there? I rule.” The author demystifies ingredients with “WTF is...?” boxes, and many recipes feature smartphone scan codes that lead readers to a relevant cooking video—a nice interactive touch in this fresh, of-the-moment volume.
