‘The Sexy Vegan Cookbook’

March 20, 2012By 5 Comments

Once upon a time, I was at an Animal Acres event in Acton, CA, chillin’ with the piggies and moo-moos, and when grub time rolled around, they had this funny, quirky energetic chef, who went by “The Sexy Vegan” (Brian Patton), demo and make us all an insanely delish spread.  I remember thinkin’, “this guy needs a TV show or a cookbook”… and tada—I’ve now got his cookbook in hand!

First of all, I ♥ the title: The Sexy Vegan Cookbook: Extraordinary Food from an Ordinary Dude, $16.95.

Secondly, all of his recipes are down-to-earth, easy to make, and fun. He covers everything from cocktails (“the most important meal of the day”), meat substitutes, breakfast, soups, salads, sandwiches, pizzas, “snackage,” and there’s a whole section devoted entirely to ice cream. SOLD. ;) Recipes I’m itchin’ to try are his jalapeno poppers, The Fat Ass sandwich, and the Mostest Ultimate-est Breakfast Sandwich in the History of the Universe.

I also love his random “WTF” blurbs and tips throughout the book—I seriously learned a lot of interesting foodie facts!

I do wish this book had color photos of each dish. I’m a sucker for savory visuals, but other than that, this book is definitely one of my faves.

Bottom line: This book helps prove that veganism is hella delish, hearty, and fun.

I definitely recommend getting this book for your dude friends (and lady friends) who might be skeptical about our scrumptious deliumptious, meat-free food choices (and who love to chuckle while they cook). :)

What’s your favorite vegan cookbook?

    I know this post is getting old now, but I have been browsing the archives for some ideas to include in my vegan swap care package :) Came across this one again and must say… I LOVE this cookbook. I haven’t purchased my own copy but have checked it out of the library at least 20 times always wanting to try a new recipe from The Sexy Vegan. The book is funny, and the food is delicious!! My swap partner will be getting a copy of her very own!

    My very first Vegan cookbook, given to me 4 years ago, is STILL my absolutely favorite, although I have collected a few more by now. The Dolce Vegan ( http://store.govegan.net/products/La-Dolce-Vegan-cookbook-%252d-autographed.html ) , by Sarah Kramer is awesome! She has creative and fun recipes that I just Love Love Love!!! You have to check it out if you haven’t.

    Dreena Burton’s cookbooks have my heart, especially her newest, Let Them Eat Vegan. I also really like Isa’s Appetite for Reduction.

    Who’s going to teach you how to make all these delicious Sexy Vegan dishes with us being so far apart now? :( ;)
