Like many of you, I love to get a brand new cookbook and read through it. If a book I’ve been lusting after just ends up being a bunch of recipes I’m kind of disappointed. When I fork over my cash for a cookbook I want it all, great recipes are a given, so I also want to get to know the author’s approach to cooking, what inspired them to make recipes, and if dishes are really good or zomg the best ever. If you feel the same way as me you are going to love Betty Goes Vegan by Annie & Dan Shannon. After reading through it I feel like I know them. I learned how cooking through the Betty Crocker Books helped Annie figure out what made her happy in life, their love of animals, each other, and so many of their favorite movies and tv shows. I loved it.
This book is very different than the typical vegan cookbook in that the focus is on using convenience foods to easily make American classics. So you won’t find recipes for entrees like Millet with Butternut Squash and Mushroom Gravy, instead it’s more like Pork Chops made with Match ground pork, Vegan Fried Eggs (with noochy yolks injected inside tofu) and Beer, Bacon, & Pepperjack Biscuits. I love buying vegan products and supporting vegan businesses but I never know what to do with all the substitutes & this book has already come in so handy. I also love that if I am thinking of a random American entree, like chicken and waffles, I can just open the book and find an easy recipe for it. And there is a chapter dedicated to casseroles! And Annie is an olive lover! And there is a holiday chapter that even tells you how to deep fry a tofurkey! And of course if you don’t like Gardein products or whatever you can always use your own homemade seitan or tofu.
I think this would be a great book to give to the next person who asks you “do you just eat salad?”. They will be shocked! Or if your mom doesn’t know how to make food for you for Thanksgiving, or if your partner is craving a meat & potatoes kind of meal, this would be the perfect book to give them. And now you can because we are giving away 5 copies!
