Finally, You Can Celebrate Without Compromise.
As a vegan, have you ever felt like you're seen as the enemy of fun? Have you ever gone to a dinner party and felt like your presence put a damper everyone else's food orgy or been made to feel like you ruined Thanksgiving, the office holiday party and, well, basically everything else with your pesky vegan ways? Or maybe you are trying to cook for a vegan - or more vegan for yourself - but you're unsure about what to cook that tastes amazing?
Vegan Holidays for Everyone to the rescue!
For vegans and those cooking for us, the holidays can present a challenge: it can be a steep learning curve to figure out delicious foods that everyone will love but don't rely on the usual meat or animal-based ingredients. Holidays are a time when many people like the comfort of the familiar even more than usual and crave tradition. With that challenge in mind, we've developed recipes for foods that are familiar but even better than we remember because they won't weigh us down physically or emotionally. In short, you won't be missing a thing.
With Vegan Holidays, you will see that it's not only possible but also empowering and exciting to celebrate special days with friends and family without compromising your ethics or your taste buds. We've gathered more than 70 recipes inspired by ten treasured holidays that prove just how tantalizing plant-based foods can be. These recipes - all vegan and gluten-free - are full of flavor, easy to make, something anyone can enjoy and are not about sacrifice in the least: it's about the joy and abundance that comes with living in alignment and that comes through with every recipe. Created by Marla Rose, the recipe developer for VeganStreet.com, these recipes are designed to delight vegans and vegetarians and impress even the most stubborn omnivores.
Impress your guests with a complete Thanksgiving meal inside a Savory Holiday Roast. Seduce your soul mate on Valentine's Day with Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Sage-Butter Sauce for Lovers. Be the coolest parent on the block on Halloween with Freaky Eyeball Pizza. And make your Veganniversary extra special with The Best Vegan Cake with Perfect Vegan Frosting. Each recipe is lavishly photographed.
Along the way, Fun, Festive and Fabulous offers tips, encouragement and inspiration for hosting parties and attending parties, throwing in interesting bits of historical lore and even sprinkles in some silly puns just for good measure.
Vegan Holidays for Everyone reminds us that celebrations are supposed to be fun. Now get at it!
