Guest cookbook review: Hearty Vegan Meals for Monster Appetites »
If you haven’t already, here are three good reasons to check out the new cookbook Hearty Vegan Meals for Monster Appetites by the fabulous collaborative team Joni Marie Newman and Celine Steen:
- You’re throwing an “it’s still warm out” last-chance summer BBQ for friends.
- You have a friend with a very healthy appetite—also known as you.
- Everything this duo creates is awesome and delicious and there’s no reason not to have it on your shelf.
I have made the coleslaw a few times and it has yet to disappoint. The portions are perfect for a dinner with friends, and the dressing is a perfect blend of sweet and tart.
Look at this tantalizing picture of creamy goodness and tell me you don’t want some right now.*
Plus, if you are the hardest sell ever, here’s a bonus reason:
4. I shared a table with Joni at the recent Vida Vegan Con, and she is extremely funny and nice, and her being lovely is a perfectly legitimate reason to buy her cookbook.
*I only allow exceptions if you just ate a humongous tofu scramble or something equally filling.
