Description of the Book from Amazon
Do your kids think tempeh is weird? Does your partner worry that a vegan diet isn't well balanced? Do your parents just not get it? Well it's time to win them over!
With her first cookbook, But I Could Never Go Vegan!, Kristy Turner deliciously refuted every common excuse to prove that, yes, anyone can go vegan. Now, But My Family Would Never Eat Vegan! serves up 125 all-new, scrumptious, satisfying recipes—organized around 20 too-familiar objections to eating vegan as a family:
Don't have time to cook elaborate family dinners? Whip up an easy weeknight solution: Quick Cauliflower Curry, BBQ Chickpea Salad, or Cheesy Quinoa & Veggies.
Worried about satisfying the "meat and potatoes" eaters? Wow them with Lazy Vegan Chile Relleno Casserole, Jackfruit Carnitas Burrito Bowl, or Ultimate Twice-Baked Potatoes.
Hosting a special event? Try Pizzadillas for game day, Champagne Cupcakes for bridal showers, Maple-Miso Tempeh Cutlets for Thanksgiving, or Herbed Tofu Burgers for your next potluck.
Easy-to-follow, bursting-with-flavor recipes—free of all animal products!--make it easier than ever to please vegans and non-vegans at gatherings. Even your most skeptical relatives will be begging for more!
The publisher was kind enough to provide me with a copy of this book to review. All opinions are my own and honest.
If you have read any of my other cookbook reviews you already know what I look for in a cookbook. It needs to have lots of pictures (I need to be inspired to make it!), it needs to focus on unprocessed foods, needs to have recipes that are quick and easy, and needs to have basic ingredients (nothing fancy!). This book checks almost all those. The recipes are amazing, and really focuses on things that are fast, easy, and stuff the whole family will love. There are lots of photos that make me want to cook everything. My only one complaint is that there are too many recipes with oils, most without oil free alternatives. I know that the author is not looking to be oil free but that's something that is important to me. Overall, this is a great cookbook, especially for new vegans, those that are interested in trying vegan recipes, and those that have families that are resistant.
