Review

Eat, Drink & Be Vegan is full of vibrant, healthy, and delicious recipes that are perfect for an everyday meal or special celebration, without the need to rely on overly processed foods. Cheers to Dreena, who has provided us with yet another wonderful cookbook that reflects her fun personality and dedication to showing the world that compassionate, wholesome food can taste amazing.
—Jenna and Bob Torres, co-authors, Vegan Freak: Being Vegan in a Non-Vegan World and co-hosts, Vegan Freak Radio. (Torres Vegan Freak 2007-10-15)

Combining a simple design with oodles of valuable veggie cooking info and mouth-watering recipes, Burton's latest cookbook features "celebration" recipes and is every bit as good as her previous books, the now-classic The Everyday Vegan and the impressive follow-up Vive le Vegan!.... Vegan cooking is always a celebration when Burton's books are in the kitchen.
Monday Magazine (Victoria, BC) (Monday Magazine 2007-11-08)

Like its predecessors, Eat, Drink & Be Vegan puts flavour at the fore. Even as a raging carnivore, I can see myself making her Thai coconut corn stew or tomato-dill-lentil soup.
Georgia Straight (Georgia Straight 2007-12-06)

In the book, Burton proves that vegan dishes can be easy and quick to make, using familiar, everyday ingredients.
Peace Arch News (Peace Arch News 2007-12-12)

Through her three cookbooks, Dreena has developed a vault of recipes that are healthy, accessible and vegan-friendly. Her latest book, Eat, Drink & Be Vegan, features recipes that are versatile enough to transition from everday dish to party offering.
Gannett News Service (Gannett News Service 2007-12-16)

Eat, Drink & Be Vegan is enhanced with sixteen full-color photographs, and is a welcome addition to personal, professional, and community cookbook collections.
Midwest Book Review (Midwest Book Review 2007-12-15)

You don't have to actually be a vegan to enjoy Dreena Burton's cookbooks and to make them a part of your usual kitchen library. This is healthy, nutritious cooking suitable for a family or anyone interested in eating for optimum health.
January Magazine (January Magazine 2007-12-18)

Dreena has the know-how and a knack for whipping up inviting, festive dishes in minutes that anyone can enjoy as healthful weekday fare.... her Gimme Chimis is a mouth-watering creation that features nutritious ingredients in a south-of-the-border-style sauce with a touch of fire.
Vegetarians in Paradise (Vegetarians in Paradise 2008-01-08)

If you have enjoyed Dreena's recipes in the past or are you looking for a cookbook that will provide you with easy entertaining ideas that will impress your friends of all ages, then pick up Eat, Drink & Be Vegan.
Lifelines (Toronto Vegetarian Association) (Lifelines (Toronto Vegetarian Assoc) 2007-12-31)

In her third vegan cookbook, Dreena Burton shows how easy it is to enjoy fabulous meals that are animal-free.... Her enthusiasm for vegan cooking is infectious and will help spur you on to try more imaginative recipes than you ever thought possible.
North Shore News (North Vancouver) (North Shore News 2008-07-01)

I should have written a review of this cookbook long ago, but I finally just put my fork down (literally) after eating another one of ED&BV's fabulous recipes and said, "People must know how great this cookbook is!" And here I am :)

What did I just finish? The White Bean, Walnut, and Spinach Phyllo Rolls with the Traditional Cranberry Sauce. This is the second time I have made it. It is unbelievable. So easy, but so elegant and delicious. That's how I characterize a lot of Dreena's recipes - easy, elegant, delicious. This book is full of uncomplicated recipes with easy to find ingredients (at least, for me - I have a decently stocked Stop & Shop, Shaw's Supermarket, Whole Foods, and health food store within a 15-mile radius). The results have all been spectacular. I've also made (and LOVED) the Olive Oyl Pasta, White Bean & Rosemary Soup with Jumbo Croutons (OMG amazing), Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto with Toasted Almonds and Pine Nuts, Sweet Potato Lentil Chili, Rosemary Cornmeal Polenta Fries, Lentil Veggie Chimichangas with Hide the Lentils Tomato Sauce, Coconut Lime Basmati Rice, Cashew-Ginger Tofu, Thai Chick-Un Pizza, Orange Sesame Tofu, Olive and Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus, Savory French Lentils, Cimmamon Lime Quinoa with Apricots and Almonds, One Wild Chick Soup (honestly, it is as savory and filling as the best chicken and rice soup you would have eaten in your "omni" days), Veggie Tempeh Muffaletta (I think I'm in love...probably the most time-consuming recipe in the book, but it is sooooooo worth it!), Beats a BLT Sandwich! (sure does!), Spicy Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew with Polenta Croutons, Cumin Lime Tofu, Autumn Puree, Smoky Split Pea Soup, Quinoa Chickpea Confetti Casserole, Moroccan-Infused Phyllo Rolls with Balsamic Maple Sauce (mmmmmmm so good!), and Monkey Minestrone.

(Originally posted at ananimalfriendlylife.com)

As our vegan cookbook selection expands--for that matter, as the selection of vegan cookbooks on the market expands--my wife and I find ourselves using certain cookbooks more and some less... or not at all. As with vegan restaurants in cities like New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, simply existing isn't good enough anymore. You've got to be good to be competitive. This development is good for consumers and for veganism, since there's no tolerance for lousy, difficult vegan food when there is plenty of good eating to be had.

eat, drink & be vegan, Dreena Burton's latest cookbook, tops even her own first two books, The Everyday Vegan and Vive Le Vegan!. Dreena excels at concocting practical recipes that taste satisfying and--oh, by the way--happen to be pretty darn healthy. Bonus!

ED&BV is attractively designed and, like her previous books, focused on the practical, featuring dozens of helpful tips on getting your kitchen equipped (hint: none of these are fancy-schmancy Williams Sonoma items, and will serve you well no matter what book you're cooking from), food preparation, and cooking and baking notes. Most of the recipes come with helpful tips and recommendations on pairing with other recipes in the book, as well as serving suggestions. Dreena will have you putting meals together like a pro.

While some ingredients may not be available in just any store (quinoa, agave nectar, arrowroot powder, etc.), overall ED&BV is one of the more accessible vegan cookbooks out there. The book doesn't rely heavily on ingredients like these and, besides, most can be found at Whole Foods Markets, which are more ubiquitous than ever.

This is her best cookbook yet. Dreena is such a genius. I have her other two books and I have to say that everything I've made has been wonderful. You know you will get something incredible when it comes from Dreena. She knows how to feed your vegan family healthy foods. Even her desserts are healthy--lots of good stuff and very little sweetener.

What I love most about ED&BV (as well as her other two) are Dreena's "notes," her ideas on how to serve many of the dishes, substitutions, all the little tidbits of info she offers. She truly does talk you through the recipes. It is so much more than a book full of recipes and that's what sets her apart from other cookbook authors. Plus I know that whatever I make, my family is getting a healthy meal or snack, and even dessert. I love the different flours she uses, the spices, the use of nuts and seeds, her addition of nutritional yeast, and the limited amount of sweetener in the desserts. Oh, and the Hummus section in ED&BV is the best! We love hummus and can this woman make hummus!!! She even offers ideas on using the various hummus' on pizza. She always has your kids in mind and gives you many ideas on creating foods for them. She really makes my life as a Mom trying to feed my family healthy vegan foods so much easier.

I enjoy Dreena's books so much--like her I have a little girl (she has two) and a husband to cook for, so the dishes need to please everybody and not taste too spicy, too "out there", etc. When I read her books I feel like I have a vegan girlfriend giving me advice and sharing recipes, supporting me in my efforts to be vegan. Dreena's recipes are terrific because she gets you trying new ingredients (I had never used agave nectar before, or made cookies with 5-spice powder, or a smoothie with hemp seed nuts) but the results are things that are new and interesting without being strange.

Here's what I've made from the book--

Banana Pecan Rice Pudding Pie--My husband and I loved this. Easy to make--just make extra brown rice when you make the Spicoli Burgers so that's ready to go, and as she says, you can put this together in a snap!

Kinda Corny Muffins--loved these! Very filling and satisyfing without being too heavy. Great with soup or stew.

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Scones--my daughter really liked these

Raspberry Cornmeal Pancakes--Yummy. Again, very satisfying since they are made with whole grains instead of white flour.

Tomato Basil Breakfast Quesadilla--have to give this fair justice--I didn't have any basil when I made this, and obviously that's an important ingredient. Even so I will probably modify this recipe in the future. You include Roasted Red Pepper and Almond Hummus in this, and I just did not care for the almond (cherry?) flavor in the hummus. But I liked the idea of a savory "quesadilla" for breakfast, so this will help inspire new ideas.

Simplest Garlic Bread--rubbing a clove of fresh garlic on frozen bread didn't work so well for me. Maybe I did something wrong.
