This year, I am going to give you all, a monthly new post about my favourite cookbook of the month. I have several new cookbooks in my possession but also many old ones that I absolutely love. Each month, I am going to review 1 of them & tell you all, why I love this specific cookbook so much. If I can, I give you a tried & tested recipe of each cookbook & maybe I can convince you too ! 😉
This book is from the famous Kriss Carr. She is a former actress & also she is a great cookbook writer, a vegan & photographer. She lives with a rare sort of cancer, type, epithelioid hemangioendothelioma that is incurable!! She is living 10 years now with her cancer! She has Stage IV cancer, no cure, no treatment, no options. She is one very courageous woman. You can read more about her life-changing story, Here!
I was already following her in her blog posts & her recipes rock! I bought this book 10 days before Christmas & it is a whole vegan, healthy approach to life in general. What she says & does, I believe in. Her vegan recipes are totally inspiring for me & my husband Peter.
First, she explains her way of living & how to do it, with great tips too. Her table of contents, is divided into 4 courses, the 1st course, with recipe names like: Burn, Baby, Burn & I, like it raw, etc, will get your attention! She also explains her lifestyle philosophy & her sexy Crazy Diet too! 🙂 The 2nd course includes tools, recipes & how to prepare your daily foods to eat & prepare them better. The 3rd course is about the kitchen know-how & how to cook your grains,etc. The 4th course is all about crazy sexy recipes! This book has 150 plant-based recipes in it. She also wrote this book together with another chef, Chad Sarno! I never heard of this chef before , over here in Europe! Do you know him?
She also adds tasty vegan recipes from other chefs, who are guests, in her cookbook. This is Kris’s 4th book. Here is an example of one of her many tasty recipes:
In her book you can find, tasty salads, tasty smoothies, lovely juices, great breakfast recipes, with names like Tofu country scramble, French toast with home-made vegan Amaretto crème, etc. You also can find tasty soups & stews like this one:
( I love that she added chopped kale to the final dish for extra vegan plant power goodness! 😉 ) Hale to kale!
She also has a chapter on sandwiches & wraps with names like Curried Nada-egg with watercress wraps & save the Tuna salad on rye,… Another cool chapter is sensual starters,…She also has a chapter called sexy sides, dressing, marinades & condiments! It is a really great vegan whole foods cook book!
She explains her recipes very well & I also love her writing, with good tips, under her recipes! 😉 She takes her whole book & her top-notch vegan recipes & dishes to a whole new level! She also presents her dishes very well,…I learn a lot from her! 🙂
I made this recipe from her, on page 189, under the chapter, Main Events, called Teriyaki tofu with wild mushrooms & soba noodles but used some other veggies in here & used 100% buckwheat noodles because I had them in the house. It was a lot of work for me to do, making the marinade for the tofu & making an orange & wine reduction as an extra sauce for the tofu & wokked veggies but in the end, it was really worth it!!! These are my pics!
I also want to prepare all of her tasty sounding & looking recipes, just like this tasty easy dessert, Clementine Sorbet, you can find it on page 269, it looks very appetizing, doesn’t it, hey?
What about these lovely sounding vegan dessert recipes, with names like berries & cream, super fudge low-fat brownies, chocolate walnut cake, raw apple spiced rum shortcake with maple vanilla glaze???
This book is a really informative, it is a more healthy cook book. If you like to cook vegan or eat sometimes vegan, you will learn a lot from her, I did! 🙂 I bought this American cookbook in my local Waterstone’s shop in Brussels. It costed me: 30.45€. ISBN: 978-1-4019-4104-8 The End! 🙂 Stay tuned, Subscribe by email through the link below to get my new cool newsletters aka posts! Join 1,800 email Subscribers! It is free!
