Let Them Eat Vegan: 200 Deliciously Satisfying Plant-Powered Recipes for the Whole Family is a sort of return to the basics of vegan. Many of us have become accustomed to prepared vegan meals, utilizing meat substitutes and other processed products to replicate meat-based meals, albeit a bit healthier. In this cookbook, Dreena Burton shows how the basics (beans, nuts, seeds, whole-grains and whole-grain products, vegetables and fruits) can be utilized for everyday plant-powered eating. The recipes eschew white flour, white sugar, and also vegan cream cheese, sour cream, vegan meat, and other similar processed substitutes. Realizing there are a variety of diets and allergies in her audience, these recipes are wheat-free, some gluten-free, with options to amend as necessary.
With 200 recipes to choose from, there is bound to be something that will make everyone in the family happy. From breakfasts to appetizers to entrees to dessert, the options seem endless. It will be a pleasure to try these recipes out and share one on a Meatless Monday post! Options that jump out at me right away are “Smoky Sweet Potato and Black Bean Salad,” “Caribbean Fusion Stew,” “BBQ Sunflower Tofu,” and “Double-Trouble Chocolate Ganache.” Yummy.
