Sexy Vegan Review
The Sexy Vegan: Extrordinary Food from an Ordinary Dude by Brian L. Patton
Publisher: New Library
Source: Sent by publisher for review
Are you craving a way to eat killer food without killing yourself, animals, or the planet? Is your brain bloated from watching cooking shows that present recipes you’re never, ever going to make? Have you been searching for a way to prove to your friends that vegan food can be just as delicious, hearty, and satisfying as the meaty meals they’re accustomed to? Then this is the book for you.
Of his journey from watching food porn on his parents’ couch to cooking in Hollywood kitchens to becoming vegan, author Brian Patton writes:
My roommate said he didn’t know what made me a bigger loser: that I was painstakingly preserving episodes of 30 Minute Meals or that I was trying to conceal their existence by labeling them Star Trek....Once I discovered that I could not only survive but thrive without taking the life of another being, I was sold. I was a vegan. For good.
And that’s how an “ordinary dude” became the Sexy Vegan and started creating “extraordinary food” with a decidedly real-meal appeal. On every page, Brian proves that seriously good food needn’t be too serious.
If you’re thinking of becoming or are already a vegan then you’ll want to add this book to your cookbook collection. The recipes are simple and remakes of common dishes.
Brian covers cocktails, snacks, entrees and even pizza. One of the recipes that sound really interesting is a recipe for jambalaya. Instead of regular sausages he uses pretend chipotle sausages which he has a recipe for that.
This is a fun and easy cookbook that can help you stay on a vegan diet or help you decide if you want to be vegan.
Thank you to Kim Corbin and New World Library for sending me this book.
