INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
An all-new collection of more than 120 recipes that are so delicious and easy to make, you might forget they’re vegan, from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Deceptively Delicious, Double Delicious, The Can’t Cook Book, and Food Swings.
Jessica Seinfeld isn’t a committed vegan. Her husband and her children aren’t, either. Instead of convincing you to become vegan or shaming you for eating meat, she simply wants to show you how easy it is to be a vegan, at times, by cooking flavorful, affordable, and robust plant-based meals whenever you want—whether that’s every day, once a week, or just once in a while.
With her reassuring and accessible style, Jessica shows you step-by-step recipes for sweet and savory breakfasts, comforting and healthy meals for lunch and dinner, delicious snacks that can be whipped together quickly, and essential sauces and dressings—all tailored to home cooks. She also demonstrates how to create a basic vegan pantry filled with the essential items to keep in stock, explains what kitchen equipment you’ll want to have on hand, gives sample menus for combining recipes, and tells relatable stories from her adventures in vegan cooking with her family.
Simple, affordable, and comforting, and infused with Jessica’s “encouraging attitude” (Publishers Weekly), Vegan, at Times is the perfect gateway to a healthier and more balanced you.
"Once your body realizes vegan food can be flavorful, filling, and very satisfying, your mind will follow.... You will not starve," promises Seinfeld (Deceptively Delicious) in this charming collection. Without adopting a vegan lifestyle wholesale, Seinfeld (who was initially a skeptic of the "dogmatic" trend herself) offers a simple approach to "ease into veganism" by occasionally incorporating more plant-based foods into one's diet. These uncomplicated and recognizable recipes don't scream "vegan" most simply switch out dairy for plant-derived options (cashew, almond, oat) or swap butter for nut and vegetable oils. Breakfast offerings include flaky biscuits "that could be a catalyst for any nonbeliever" and are made with plant-based butter and milk, and chia pudding with caramelized bananas. Legumes and mushrooms serve as the foundation for an all-purpose meat substitute in dishes such as mushroom bolognese or taco salad. A chapter of small bites, dubbed "quickies" including a green hummus (made verdant with parsley or cilantro) and a meatless club sandwich and lists for vegan pantry basics (chickpeas, shallots, Dijon mustard), cooking equipment, and menu ideas offer an encouraging push for those ready to take the leap into meatless cooking. The result is a pleasurable and practical guide for testing the vegan waters. Agent: Jennifer Rudolph Walsh, WME.
