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).
