Giveaway–Great Gluten-Free Vegan Treats

Giveaway–Great Gluten-Free Vegan Treats

Yummy, yummy book with pretty, pretty pictures.

Oh!  We have a great cookbook giveaway for y’all today.  It’s Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats by my friend and fellow MoFo’r  Allyson Kramer.  You need this book because 1) you probably eat too much seitan, and you need to diversify, 2) you can’t eat gluten and it makes you sad missing pancakes so much or 3) you’re tired of your xgfx friends constant kvetching and you want to make them something delicious to lull their cries.  (You are so compassionate, btw).

Double Chocolate Muffins

This book really can solve all your xgfx woes, but if you’re still not sure and can’t commit to brown rice and sorghum flours, maybe the review I wrote last month will help assauge your flour anxiety.

Seriously, Allyson gives awesome recipes for a million things, all with full color photographs she shot herself:  blueberry donuts, cherry vanilla pancakes, homemade ravioli, potato dosa, cranberry bagels, apricot hand-pies, broccoli soup, pecan sticky rolls–the list is endless and delicious.

  42. I would love to have this book!

  51. I’m trying to get over my shyness and fear of public speaking, and I think this book would be oh-so-much-more appropriate to read aloud to strangers on the bus than the Stokely Carmichael biography and Flavor of Love transcripts I’ve been jumping between for the last 6 months…

  52. My friend is a vegetarian celiac. I am a vegan. We constantly try to one-up each other with culinary creations with crazy substitutions. This cookbook would give me the edge! Plus, xgfx treats are yummier than their gluten cousins!

  58. This book needs a loving home that will use it endlessly! AND that person is ME!!!! I promise it will be very happy in my kitchen!

  98. I have recently discovered your blog, after following various other Gluten-Free blogs, and yours is great because I am allergic to milk. Hence, vegan works wonders for me! I’m also not a big meat person. You make the most of those greens and this I adore! I just made your cucumber/avocado blend today and it was fantastic! Something I could eat as a main dish and a side. It was satisfying and a creative way for me to use that extra avocado I had in my fridge! I can only imagine what is inside this cookbook! It would be a joy to read and cook new recipes with!

    Keep going!
