Announcing the Happy Herbivore Cookbook!

The vegan world is about to be rocked in about T minus one year. Why? Lindsay of Happy Herbivore is publishing a cookbook, that’s why.

Never in my life have I enjoyed cooking quick, easy vegan recipes so much as when they come from Lindsay’s blog and e-cookbooks. More often than not, her recipes tend to call only for ingredients I already have on hand. And healthy, whole ingredients at that! This is a cooking style I can fully get behind.

It’s a good thing, too, since Lindsay honored me by making me a tester for her cookbook recipes. I kept it on the down-low until she made her announcement, of course, but now that the news is public, I feel no guilt whatsoever for inflicting a little old-fashioned drool torture upon you.

I made her Tamale Casserole for dinner tonight, and this is by far my favorite Happy Herbivore recipe thus far. Homerun, all the way. It’s like all the best veggie goodies of a chili with the accompanying cornbread baked right in.

Lindsay is a worldly woman, as evidenced by her mastery of not only Mexican flavors, but Indian as well! I’ve been enjoying kidney bean Rajma Masala leftovers all week.

And anyone looking closely at the Diwali party goodies from Saturday would notice that these are the very same Chai-Spiced Oatmeal Cookies that were among the spread of snacks.

So mark your calendars for a year from now, at which point you’ll acquire your new vegan Bible. This is going to be big.

So excited to be testing!! I made yam fries last night that were TO DIE FOR. In fact, I almost had to kill The Huz in order to taste one - I'm trying to butter him up with the basic vegan recipes ;-)

Sounds like a great book! I love when vegan recipes are actually healthy and made with wholesome ingredients (no butter in recipes means I don't have to modify them ;) ). I think some publishers hide behind the "vegan" label, assuming people will just think vegan must be healthier. Fake soy meats and cheeses aren't real food in my opinion. Your dishes look absolutely mouth watering :D

In the meantime, you will keep me drooling with your tester food porn!

Your dinner looks so creative! I was born and raised in Japan and so anything even remotely reminiscent of Japan makes me smile...I'm so jealous you'll be there next week!
