Overview

Veganism—the animal-free diet—is here to stay. And Dreena Burton, author of the bestselling The Everyday Vegan, is here to tell you how the decision to “go green” doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice nutrition or flavor, and in fact will make you and your family feel healthier and more alive.

Dreena and her husband became parents three years ago, and their decision to raise their daughter as a vegan from birth has made the need for an animal-free diet that is fully nutritional all the more crucial. But as Dreena demonstrates in Vive le Vegan!, there’s no need to panic: there are simple methods and delectable ingredients you can use that will allow you—whether you’re single or have a family—to become vegan without having to be a rocket scientist. And who said that vegan meals lack pizzazz? Not when you can make:

Berry Hemp Smoothies
Fresh Jicama and Cucumber Slaw
Hearty Roasted Tomato Stew
Carrot-Shitake Spring Rolls
Chipotle Veggie Bean Burritos
Morrocan Chickpea Patties
Apple Cardomom Cake with Creamy Lemon Maple Frosting

The recipes in Vive le Vegan! also don’t over-rely on the use of soy, given recent concerns about over--consumption, and many feature whole grains and hemp. They’re also disarmingly easy to prepare. So it’s time to give up your qualms about the vegan lifestyle and celebrate its vivid possibilities. Vive le vegan!

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Being a vegetarian is no longer the oddity it once was. (I've been a vegetarian for almost 30 years, and believe me, it's more mainstream now.) Being a vegan, however, is just catching on and it's harder to find tasty vegan recipes. This book helps to provide just such recipes. A vegan diet has no animal products, so recipes cannot use such mainstays (especially for vegetarians) as eggs, milk, and cheese. It requires serious changes, so this book does a real service by handling basics: breakfast foods, baked goods, sauces and toppings, salads, soups, dips, main courses, and desserts. There is a section, cooking notes, which describe basics such as methods of soaking beans, toasting nuts and seeds, cooking grains. There is a handy glossary that describes ingredients most people may not know about: Kamut flour, miso, flax oil, chipotle hot sauce. This is a good resource, filled with interesting recipes, and useful for those just venturing into the whole vegan way of cooking and eating. KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2004, Arsenal Pulp Press, 189p. illus. index., Ages 12 to adult.
