Home-Cooked Vegan Comfort Food
[This book was originally published with the title Hearty Vegan Meals for Monster Appetites (Fair Winds Press, 2011)] Calling All Insatiable Appetites! To anyone who's ever thought "a meal without meat is a terrible thing to eat"--we've got news for you: You're about to sink your teeth into some of the best food you've ever eaten. Meals that may be vegan but happen to be so full of hearty flavor and taste that even your non-vegan guests - and family members - will be left wondering if they just ate a meatless meal or a Thanksgiving feast. Inside, you'll be treated to a vast collection of more than 200 "secret weapon" recipes from authors Celine Steen and Joni Marie Newman, two plant-based pros who know what it takes to wow the socks off of anyone with straight-up great food. From Banana Split Waffles to Ultimate Patty Melts, they'll show you (and your meat-loving guests) that eating vegan doesn't mean sacrificing flavor, but rather enhancing it using the natural flavors found in fruits, vegetables, grains, spices, herbs, and more. Recipes include:

- Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donut Holes

- Hearty Breakfast Bowl

- Chocolate Stout Chili

- Sweet Potato Po' Boys

- Five-Cheese Baked Macaroni and Cheese

- Crispy Burritos con Carne

- Garlic Truffle Fries

- Sun Dried Tomato, Garlic, and Basil Flatbread

- Strawberry Cream Pretzel Pie

- White Chocolate Almond Bars

- Peanut Butter Rocky Road Pound Cakes

Whether you're looking to impress or indulge - or both - Home-Cooked Vegan Comfort Food is your ultimate source for mean and mouthwatering eats at every meal.

    I can't speak for the one meat-eater in our house because he refuses to even try anything new, but the rest of us really enjoyed several of the recipes in this book. Lots of nice food photos, too! ...

    I won a free copy of this through GoodReads First Reads. The problem with this cookbook is how many delicious-looking recipes there were in it. I know, what a terrible problem to have, right?! I love the idea of comfort food, and especially with the weather changing (at least in my nec...

    If you're vegan (or trying to be vegan) for health reasons, this isn't a cookbook for you. This is for vegans who get cravings for thick mac'n'cheese, chocolate stout chili, and sloppy joes. This is for vegans who dream of chicken & waffles and buttermilk pancakes, fettuccini alfre...
