Chloe’s Kitchen: 125 Easy, Delicious Recipes for Making the Food You Love the Vegan Way

We rated this book:


“My friend wrote a cookbook,” my sister says
“Awesome, I’ll buy one and throw her some support,” I declare
“It’s a vegan cookbook.”
“Great,” I exclaim, thinking “So I’ll support her and then have the book collect dust until it disintegrates.”

Well, give this one a chance. This actually has a lot of great recipes that are simple, delicious, and healthy. Now, I know not all vegan is healthy and not all vegan is even edible but this passes muster. Chloe was the first person EVER to win a Food Network competition show (Cupcake Wars) using vegan recipes. Her cupcakes are amazing as are many of her other recipes. Our particular favorites are the falafel sliders, the trio of Indian dishes, and the mac & cheese. We aren’t big fans of the vegan dishes that try to fake the eater with meat substitutes or that will make “vegan meatloaf.” If I want meatloaf I’m making meatloaf. I want interesting, original dishes. This book has a ton of those original dishes and we use this book on a semi-weekly basis.

That’s also not mentioning the desserts. How vegan sweets can taste as good, if not better, than “normal” desserts with butter and cream I don’t really know. I will turn to the back section of her book when needing a dessert to impress regularly. Or just when I want to eat a bowl of frosting on the couch in my sweats.
