book review: Eat, Drink & Be Vegan

After seeing “Super-Charge Me” cookies on just about every blog out there and paging through Eat, Drink & Be Vegan I knew that Dreena Burton had something going on and that this was a cookbook that I needed in my collection. Which, by the way, has gotten so large that I’m on the hunt for a larger bookshelf.

Everything in the book sounds delicious and I appreciate the use of real ingredients and not solely fake meat and cheese replacements like some other Vegan cookbooks that I’ve seen. Here is some of what I’ve made – can’t wait to make more and eventually I’ll get to those Super-Charge Me Cookies!

Polenta Croutons & Living Caesar Dressing

Simplest Garlic Bread

I suggest that this cookbook gets a place on your shelves – Dreena’s use of whole grains, legumes and veggies epitomizes what a vegan diet should be – wholesome and delicious.

Quinoa Chickpea Confetti Casserole with Kale

Olive & Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus

Don’t forget about the tea give-away!

  1. i will have to pick this book up. i need more vegan in my current diet!

  2. I’m not a vegan, but I’ve been so intrigued by some of Dreena’s recipes…they have all the combinations that I usually love!

  3. I’m not vegan either, but I’ve been coveting this cookbook. I love her vegan chocolate chip cookies. I keep trying to justify it, but I have so many cookbooks already. Sigh… your pictures make me want it that much more.

  5. Sounds like an interesting book. I like that you mentioned that real foods are used, no fake cheese or meat. I really enjoy vegan and vegetarian foods, but can do without the faux stuff. 🙂

  6. I love that cookbook! I’m not vegan, but I love her recipes!

    i’ve heard great things about that cookbook.

  8. Wow, you have some beautiful plating going on there! This sounds like a great cookbook to have around.

    About the huuuuge cookbook collection – I would show you ours, but I don’t think I could fit them all in a single camera frame 😛 Besides, you can never have too many!

  10. I’ve been seeing a slew of delicious recipes from that book pop up all over the food blog-o-sphere, so I’m eager to check it out. I love vegan cookbooks because they not only include wholesome recipes, but also for the introduction to new and interesting ingredients. Teff flour, garbanzo bean flour, etc.
