Book Description

Nov. 1 2004
Veganism-the animal-free diet-is here to stay. And Dreena Burton, author of the bestselling The Everyday Vegan, is here to show you how the decision to "go green" doesn't mean you have to sacrifice nutrition or flavor, and in fact will make you and your family feel healthier and more alive.

Dreena and her husband became parents three years ago, and their decision to raise their daughter as vegan from birth has made the need for an animal-free diet that is fully nutritional all the more crucial. But as Dreena demonstrates in Vive le Vegan!, there's no need to panic: there are simple methods and delectable ingredients you can use that will allow you-whether you're single or have a family-to become vegan without having to be a rocket scientist. And who said that vegan meals lack pizzazz? Not when you can make:
Berry Hemp Smoothies, Fresh Jicama and Cucumber Slaw, Hearty Roasted Tomato Stew, Carrot-Shitake Spring Rolls, Chipotle Veggie Bean Burritos, Moroccan Chickpea Patties, Apple Cardamom Cake with Creamy Lemon Maple Frosting

The recipes in Vive le Vegan! also don't always require soy, given recent concerns about over-consumption, and many feature whole grains and hemp. They're also disarmingly easy to prepare. So it's time to give up your qualms about the vegan lifestyle and celebrate its vivid possibilities. Vive le vegan!

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

With its quintessentially vegan-sounding recipe names—Apple-Hemp Muffins, Balsamic-Garlic Flax Oil (to dip with bread), Millet-Amaranth Porridge, Vicki’s Hummus-Quinoa Casserole—this cookbook certainly has a specific audience. But vegan readers are in for a treat, because Burton (The Everyday Vegan) has compiled a trove of (mostly) fast and easy recipes for dishes that promise to deliver flavor and texture, and use fresh produce as well as whole grains (like kamut, brown rice, quinoa and millet), beans (including adzuki, kidney, navy and chickpeas) and flours (such as spelt, barley and oat). All dishes are animal-free, and many are wheat-free, as well. In addition to the recipes (which run the gamut from appetizers to main dishes to desserts), there are sections on feeding vegan babies and toddlers, and a helpful glossary that explains such ingredients as blackstrap molasses and hemp seed nut butter.

Dreena proves that it doesn't take huge amounts of culinary training to learn how to prepare delicious vegan meals. Vive le Vgean! gives you everything you need to get going, all in one fun and inviting book
-Eric Marcus, author of Meat Market:Animals, Ethics and Money

Delicious, unique, and fun recipes make Vive le Vegan! the perfect cookbook for vegan families.
-Erin Pavlina,

Enthusiastically recommended for vegans, vegetarians, and even meat eaters with an interest in giving their cholestoral levels a break now and then.
-Wisconsin Bookwatch

The great thing about Vive le Vegan! is that the recipes are easy to follow.... For committed vegan with families, Vive le Vegan! will be a welcome addition to the kitchen shelf.
-Vancouver Humane Society Newsletter

Vive le Vegan! welcomes a new vegan cook with open arms.... this is a book to grow into, and a good companion for years of culinary adventure. Vive le Vive!

Homemakers magazine names Vive le Vegan as one of its 5 Favorite Vegetarian Cookbooks:
While many vegetarian recipes are heavy on cheese and other dairy ingredients, vegan cooking offers the added challenge of omitting all animal products. Not only does Burton meet this challenge with her recipes, but the book also offers many wheat-free and soy-free recipes for those with allergies to these common ingredients. This is her second vegan cookbook (the first was The Everyday Vegan), and it was inspired by her experience as a vegan mother, learning how to provide nutritious, animal-free and delicious food for her daughter. She shares what she's learned about vegan parenting in the chapter "Feeding Your Vegan Baby and Toddler." And as any busy parent will love, the majority of recipes are designed for the time-challenged.

Dreena Burton author of the much beloved The Everyday Vegan, has outdone herself.... The recipes are simple, highly nutritious, and most importantly, delectable.... Vive le Vegan! is a marvelous recipe book but also serves as a guide for healthy vegan eating, with information on feeding vegan babies, how to cook grains and beans, and interesting hemp foods. A must for all serious vegan chefs and new veggies alike.
-Earthsave Canada newsletter

Vegan cookie challenge: In the chocolate chip category, there was a clear winner. Dreena, the queen of cookies, did not disappoint. Her homestyle chocolate chip recipe from Vive le Vegan stood out against the competition. The judges described being transported back to their childhoods by Dreena's moist, chewy and chocolaty delights.
-Lifelines (Toronto Vegetarian Association)

This book is a wonderful resource for the vegan family and those who are looking for wheat free alternatives or wheat free recipes. It also has a whole section at the end for feeding babies and toddlers with a lot of great information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book, even for non-veg! Feb. 6 2007
By Judy
I finally bought this book on the recommendation of many trusted friends, and I was not disappointed. Within the first three days, I had made 5 recipes. Every single thing that I have made from this book is totally delicious, and easy too.

You could feed a lot of these recipes to a non-vegan, and they would never know the difference. Actually, I am not vegan or even vegetarian, I just love healthy cooking, and this book suits me to a T. If you have any desire to get this book, do so immediately. It is one of the best recipe books I own.

When (not if!) you get this book, you must make the Moroccan Chickpea Patties with the recommended sauces. To die for! Also, the Banana Oat Bundles are wonderful little breakfast gems, and the Sunflower Lentil Pie is as delicious tasting as it is weird sounding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreena is the Queen of Vegan Cookies! Sept. 14 2007
I have had this book for a couple of years now and the recipes have certainly become staples in my cooking repetoire. A relaxing Sunday morning just isn't the same without Dreena's banana pancakes-they are so simple and delicious. Honestly, I have tried so many of the recipes in this book and they have not only impressed me, but my omni family members and friends as well. Dreena's flavour combinations are pleasing to my more adventurous palate but also keep the children in my life clamouring for seconds. She makes eating nutritious meals both simple and incredibly satisfying. I would highly suggest trying her creamy hummus, the stork muffins, the banana bundles, the lemon-herb tofu, and the three-bean curry tomato soup. Once you are full of all those wholesome recipes-turn to the dessert chapter. Dreena's cookie recipes have proven over and over again to be the best vegan cookies I have ever made (I do own over 80 vegan cookbooks). I even did a blind recipe taste-test with a local vegetarian group and Dreena's chocolate chip cookies reigned supreme. The peanut-butter cookies are just as amazing. Honestly, it is worth buying the book just to have these cookie recipes in your house for all of those special occassions.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best gifts I've ever received! April 11 2007
My very thoughtful boyfriend gifted me with this at Christmas. I've already stained the pages and marked out my favourite recipes, which are basically foolproof to make. Despite being a student, I find it easy to make the big batches of food (like the Earthy Lentil Soup which makes probably 12 servings), then just refrigerate or freeze the remainder for later (and even easier) meals!

If you've ever searched for a lovely French toast recipe that's vegan-friendly, your search can now come to an end! I've even won over non-vegans with it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice baking Sept. 8 2011
I haven't tried out so much of the 'food' items in this cookbook, as I find the recipes a little bit 'all over the place'. We have used some of the dessert and muffin recipes which have been good.
We have almost elimnated white flour from baking. I've used up 2 bags of spelt flour and 1 whole wheat flour bag whereas the white flour bag I purchased just before the cookbooks came is still left unopen.
