Let Them Eat Vegan! : 200 Deliciously Satisfying Plant-Powered Recipes for the Whole Family
Vegan food has come a long way in the past decade. The once ubiquitous dry, packaged veggie burger is no longer the poster child for an animal-free diet. It has evolved into a creative, sophisticated cuisine touted by the likes of Food & Wine magazine. Long at the fore of vegan blogging and cooking, Dreena Burton has been known for making healthy taste delicious. Let Them Eat Vegan! distills more than fifteen years of recipe development that emphasize unrefined, less-processed ingredients- no white flour or white sugar, but instead whole-grain flours, natural sweeteners, raw foods, and plenty of beans'n greens. There's no relying on meat analogues here, either- just hearty, healthy food that looks and tastes great. As the mother of three young girls, Burton always keeps their nutrition- and taste buds- in mind. From the simplest comfort foods like Warm"Vegveeta" Cheese Sauce to the more sophisticated Anise-and Coriander-Infused Orange Lentil Soup, these recipes will delight and inspire even the pickiest eaters and provide lifelong vegans with the innovative, wholesome recipes they've always wanted.
