The Veginner’s Cookbook

Care of Florence McCambridge If you’re like me and have come across Elephantastic Vegan recipes on Pinterest and Instagram, then you’re going to want to pay a visit to your local bookstore sometime soon, because the creators of that site (aka Bianca and Sascha) have a new book out.

While you’ll still find recipes for salads and smoothies, you’ll also find vegan versions of General Tso’s chicken and crispy Buffalo wings, not to mention samosas, Jamaican patties, and kimchi fries. I also love that this book features recipes for some vegan staples like pesto, gravy, hollandaise, and aioli. “Many vegan cookbooks focus on eating healthy, while we focus on entertaining and indulging your taste buds, inspiring new experiences, and helping you to vividly remember past ones.”  … Read More
