The Sexy Vegan Cookbook
Are you craving a way to eat killer food without killing yourself, animals, or the planet? Is your brain bloated from watching cooking shows that present recipes you're never, ever going to make? Have you been searching for a way to prove to your friends that vegan food can be just as delicious, hearty, and satisfying as the meaty meals they're accustomed to? Then this is the book for you. Of his journey from watching food porn on his parents' couch to cooking in Hollywood kitchens to becoming vegan, author Brian Patton writes: My roommate said he didn't know what made me a bigger loser: that I was painstakingly preserving episodes of 30 Minute Meals or that I was trying to conceal their existence by labeling them Star Trek.... Once I discovered that I could not only survive but thrive without taking the life of another being, I was sold. I was a vegan. For good. And that's how an "ordinary dude" became the Sexy Vegan and started creating "extraordinary food" with a decidedly real-meal appeal. On every page, Brian proves that seriously good food needn't be too serious.

If you are new to veganism, or just want to make something delicious and familiar for vegans you know (heck, anyone you know!), this is a great cookbook to work with. The Crabby Cakes are amazing, and the plant-based meats are inventive and delicious, too. In a fun (and yes, sometimes crude) tone, this book is easy to follow. Great for men! Lots of sandwiches, hearty meals, and snack-food appetizers. Some of the recipes are lengthy, but they are all worth it!

Crude language / good food ideas

Vulgar language may offend some. No pictures, but some of the recipes are good, such as the minestrone. Interesting recipes for ice cream (soft-tofu base) if you have your own ice-cream maker.

Silly. Lots of meat recipes, without the meat. Maybe this would be worthwhile for a carnivore wondering how the heck to be a vegan, but it was pretty much useless for this experienced vegan.
