Book Review - Eat, Drink and Be Vegan


I LOVE this cookbook

I borrowed Eat, Drink and Be Vegan by Dreena Burton from the library to give it a shot before I committed to purchasing it. I've been a follower of Dreena's blog for awhile and her recipes always appealed to me. 

Everything I've made from this cookbook has been easy to make, had a comprehensive ingredient list that was easy to assemble, and everything tasted brilliant and received both the Joey and Ashley seal of approval. Recipes that I've made include: Thai Coconut Corn Stew, Lemon Garlic Pasta, Cashew-Basil pesto pasta, and the Cashew Ginger Tofu. You can read more detailed reviews of these recipes in my latest weekly menu recaps (here and here). I know that they're all recipes I will make again (especially the cashew ginger tofu - man, that was awesome!!)

I like that recipes were labelled "wheat free" when applicable and many substitution ideas were given. I've found a lot of great recipe ideas in vegan cookbooks since the beginnings of my elimination diet and this one has been no exception. I only wish that the cookbook had more pictures and that the nutritional information had been included. Other than that, it's love. I've asked Joey to buy it for my birthday and I'm looking forward to have a copy to call my own!!
