How It All Vegan! 10th Anniversary Edition.

Publisher's Summary. Since it was first published in 1999, How It All Vegan! has become a bible for vegan cooks, both diehard and newly converted; its basic introduction to the tenets of vegan living and eating, combined with Sarah and Tanya’s winning charm, made it an essential cookbook for anyone considering eschewing animal products from their diet. It won VegNews’ Veggie Award for Best Cookbook twice, has been reprinted fourteen times, and spawned several successful sequels (including The Garden of Vegan, La Dolce Vegan, and Vegan à Go-Go!).

In the ten years since How It All Vegan! was first published, however, veganism has “come out of the closet,” and is now considered a legitimate diet and lifestyle not only for those wishing to improve their health, but also those who care deeply about the welfare of animals. This tenth-anniversary edition includes new recipes, as well as updates and advice that better reflect the new vegan reality; it also includes a colour photo section and a new introduction by co-author Sarah Kramer, who speaks personally and passionately about the impact of veganism on her life over the past decade.

With this tenth anniversary edition, Sarah and Tanya's fans can find out "how it all vegan" all over again!

Have you or you loved one’s been affected by the “Thanksgiving Day Dilemma?” By tradition Thanksgiving is a meat-centered day. However, while most Americans celebrate the holiday many hosts or guests, do not eat meat. Hence, millions of hosts or guests are experiencing the Thanksgiving Day Dilemma of what to serve, or bring, to accommodate all palates.

Coming to the rescue of vegan challenged cooks everywhere is How it all Vegan the 10th anniversary edition by Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer. How it All Vegan solves the Thanksgiving Day Dilemma with seasonally appropriate recipes, including, Tofurky, Roasted Garlic Potatoes, Perfect Pumpkin Pie and many more. The recipes are comprised of everyday ingredients and are simple enough for even the most inexperienced of cooks.

How it all Vegan is part vegan cookbook and part primer for living the vegan life. However, while the authors are passionate about their life style they are not preachy or part of what they call the “Vegan Police.” Rather they simply explain the why and how of their conversions. Their non-judgmental writing style is what makes this book accessible to vegans and non-vegans alike. Eaters of all palates will enjoy mouthwatering fare such as Classic Spinach Lasagna, Butternut Tomato Soup, Raspberry Cornmeal Muffins, and Peppermint Patties (that look like York Peppermint Patties on steroids!).

Whether you’re going vegan for a meal, a month, or for life How it all Vegan is an invaluable resource!

  1. I was vegetarian for years (not vegan though as that took more commitment than I was capable of) and still have meatless meals here as often as I can swing them past the raging carnivores with whom I live (and love). Actually, I don't regret going back to eating meat but love to find great food that doesn't always include it to help our diets stay more balanced than they often are.

  2. This is so ironic running across this I am hosting a VEGAN Thanksgiving. An Orphan one for people who do not want to be around turkeys cooking. It is tough to do and I do not recomend it.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. I'm sure you are up to the challenge.
    And I hope you're having a great Vegan Thanksgiving Tom!
