Editorial Reviews

Review, 3/14/12
“User-friendly, family friendly positive cookbook with recipes that should appeal to all age ranges and varied palates.”, 3/15/12
“A good introduction to vegan food preparation, thanks to introductory material on useful kitchen tools and a section explaining just what various ingredients are.”
Writing in the Mountains (blog), 3/20/12
“[A] great place to start if you're just getting into veganism. [Burton] breaks everything down into very simple terms in the introduction.  There's also a metric conversion chart in the back, great tutorial on cooking beans, a whole section on smoothies and much more.”
San Francisco Book Review, 4/20
“The pictures are truly mouthwatering. Recommended for the health-conscious home cook.”
VegNews, May/June 2012
“Burton’s best-looking book to date…is both family-centric and on-trend…She hits the mark of the current culinary trend of moving away from processed substitutions for meat or dairy ingredients, and toward whole-foods meals that are minimally processed. Of course Burton covers all her courses, with green smoothies and breakfast cookies all the way through braised tempeh with capers and Corn Chowder Quinoa Casserole. But where she really shines is in the sweets…Any family would be lucky to eat the way Burton’s does.”
Midwest Book Review, April 2012
“These recipes are varied and designed for any occasion and bring out the full potential of vegan staples. Let them Eat Vegan! is a strong pick for any Vegan cook looking for new dishes and new ideas.”
Tuscon Citizen, 5/29/12
“The author serves up her cooking tips and advice that add a personal touch. This is, in fact, the next best thing to actually having Dreena cooking in your home kitchen beside you…This is a fun collection that will make it easier for us to rediscover the joy of cooking with whole foods and, in the process, perhaps establish a healthier lifestyle.”, 7/2/12
“A worthy addition to a cookbook shelf. It has a wide selection of simple, yet elegant vegan recipes.”

Natural Solutions, 7/31/12
“You won’t find any processed vegan substitutes, white flour, or artificial sweeteners in this delectable cookbook—just hearty, healthy, delicious vegan food. From the simplest comfort foods to sophisticated main dishes, even non-vegans will enjoy cooking these flavorful and satisfying foods.”

Midwest Book Review, June 2012
“From Lemon Infused Mediterranean Lentils to Truffled Cashew Cheese, this is packed with dishes which are easy and surprising—and appealing to vegans and non-vegans alike. No vegan collection should be without this appealing presentation of alternative dishes.”

Portland Oregonian, 8/20/12
“There's just the right mix of difficulty, with enough easy recipes for novice cooks, along with more-involved dishes to challenge more experienced cooks. And for vegan skeptics, there's a whole chapter of crowd-pleasing veggie burger recipes. I can't wait to try them all.”

One of the Portland Oregonian’s Five Favorite Cookbooks from 2012 Worth Putting on Your Christmas List

Oregonian, 11/26/12
“With [Burton’s] latest cookbook, she shows how attractive vegan eating can be for the whole family. As a stay-at-home mom of three children, Burton created recipes that are kid-friendly while offering complex flavors that will please adult palates. It's a difficult balance to strike, but Burton makes it look easy.”, 11/30/12
“A valuable resource to add to one’s kitchen, whether vegan or not…It includes a variety of all the recipes one would need to satisfy a variety of taste buds, ages and health needs through delicious, whole food meal options.”

Named one of’s “12 Favorite Nonfiction Books of 2012”, 12/13/12
“[A] user-friendly, family-friendly positive cookbook with recipes that appeal to all age ranges and varied palates.”

More About the Author

Dreena Burton has been vegan for almost 20 years, in that time writing four bestselling cookbooks charting her journey as a plant-powered cook and at-home mother of three.  Always passionate about creating nutritious recipes, she is an advocate of using the "vegan basics" to create healthy, delicious food for the whole family.  Affectionately dubbed the "Queen Bean" and "Vegan Cookie Queen" by her readers, Dreena is one of the pioneering vegan cookbook authors. Her cookbooks have garnered a loyal following, and Dreena has earned the respect and repute for reliable, wholesome recipes.

Dreena graduated with distinction, receiving her Bachelor of Business Administration degree from University of New Brunswick. After working in marketing management for several years with an international satellite communications company, Dreena followed her true passion of writing recipes and cookbooks. The Everyday Vegan was her first project, following her father-in-law's heart attack. When the cardiologist strongly advised a low-fat plant-based diet to her husband's parents to reverse heart disease, Dreena knew there was information needing to be shared - most importantly, how and what to eat as a vegan. After having her first child, she wrote Vive le Vegan!, which represented her journey as a mom, and more wholesome, easy recipes. Then came eat, drink & be vegan, a celebratory recipe book which has become a must-have cookbook in the vegan community, known for its entire chapter on hummus and inventive flavor combinations. Dreena's latest cookbook "Let Them Eat Vegan", a whole-foods vegan cookbook that is entirely wheat and gluten-free and does not rely on vegan 'subs', made the bestseller list reaching top 5 of all books.

Dreena has appeared on television and radio. She is a recipe contributor for well-known sites including KrisCarr, Forks Over Knives, Engine 2 Diet, and PCRM. Dreena has written for Yoga Journal, VegNews, alive magazine, and has been featured in other publications including First magazine. She has won several blog awards including VegNews, VegBloggy, and Vancouver's Ultimate Mom Blog. Her "Homestyle Chocolate Chip" video has become her signature cookie recipe and has received over 200,000 YouTube views. Dreena has been chosen to speak and cook at vegetarian and wellness events, and produces her own "Plant-Powered Kitchen" cooking videos.

I have wanted to write a review of this -and I'll just get this love-affair out there right now, it's brilliant, so do yourself (and your health, your taste buds, and the environment) a favor, buy this book - for a while now. However, I tend to be a big procrastinator. So much so that I have wanted to write other review before but have never gotten around to it. In fact, this will be my first review ever. So why now? How did I break through the procrastination? I did so because I am absolutely driven to do so. I just have to let everyone else know how awesome Let Them Eat Vegan is!

I have been a huge fan of Dreena Burton's for years now. What I like most about her books is that they use whole ingredients, ones that are good for you and our earth. This is especially true in this book. I don't believe there is even one ingredient that is a highly-processed source (there are some minimal processed items, but they are still very healthy). So you might be thinking, okay, the ingredients are whole food ingredients, but I bet some of them are hard to find. Nope! There may be a few high-end items that you might have to search out (Amazon is your friend here), but, for the majority, most items are easily found. All of this means nothing, though, if the recipes don't taste good - scratch that - if they don't taste great! And trust me, the ones they I have tried so far are PHENOMINAL. In fact, they have all be so good that this is truly the first time I have wanted to make every single recipe in a cookbook. And I certainly intend on doing so. Even my boyfriend who can be a bit picky has absolutely loved everything I have made from this book. And ever since we got this book, it has been on a high-rotation for our weekly meal planning.

I have all of Dreena's cookbooks, and was a tester for Let Them Eat Vegan. this book is absolutely amazing! there are so many great tasting, healthy recipes that my whole family loves. My hubby and my son are both gluten-free, and they can eat most of the recipes from this book... many are gluten free, or have gluten free options... and they are all so delicious! All the recipes were easy to prepare, and the instructions are clear.

I especially love the focus on whole-foods, no vegan substitutes (like fake sour cream, etc).. the emphasis is on whole grains, vegetables and beans... just as it should be! I feel really confident feeding my hungry, growing kids recipes from Dreena, and they are eager to eat them.

The Peanut Butter Chai Ice Cream recipe is worth the cost of the book alone ;)

Thanks, Dreena, for yet another fabulous book that my whole family loves!!!

I now have all four of Dreena's cookbooks, and I have to say, she REALLY went all out on this one! WOW! It's not just a cookbook, but an entire guidebook for making delicious plant-powered meals with whole, unprocessed foods. I love the extra chapters like the glossary of kitchen tools and ingredients, raising vegan children (feeding toddlers, packing school lunches), and how to prepare different greens and grains.

Dreena's 200 recipes cover just about every category you could think of and left me wanting to try them all!

Chapter 1: Breakfast Bites and Smoothies
Chapter 2: Salads That Make a Meal
Chapter 3: Proud to Be Saucy and Dippy
Chapter 4: Vegan Soup for the Soul
Chapter 5: Side Stars
Chapter 6: Your Main Squeeze: Casseroles, One-Pot Wonders, and Tarts
Chapter 7: When Burgers Get Better
Chapter 8: Good Pasta Belongs on a Plate - Not the Wall!
Chapter 9: C Is for Cookie, That's Good Enough for Me
Chapter 10: Let Them Eat Cake, Pies, and Pudding
Chapter 11: Dreena Dazs (<-- a whole chapter for ice cream!)

I've only had the book a few days, and so far I've made the Cocoa Cookie Dough Balls, Kids' Cheesy Chickpea and White Bean Soup, Wholesome Oat Snackles, Too-Good-to-Be-Tofu Burgers, and Black Bean, Quinoa, and Sweet Potato Spicy Croquettes. Everything turned out really, really well - and I've just scratched the surface!!

Now, what shall I make next...Apple Spice Hemp Pancakes, Mediterranean Bean Burgers, or Raspberry Almond Torte? Decisions, decisions!

Let's see - what's great about this book? Well, there is a very helpful pantry section that suggests what you might want to stock up on, and why. There's a whole section on healthy green smoothies AND a section on veggie burgers that includes some not-too-spicy ones that kids will love. And the award-winning raw b-raw-nies are in here! (And they are good!!) The book is very nicely laid out so that recipes are mostly all on one page or on a two-page spread, which makes for easier cooking. It's a great book for "beginner vegans" and for those with experience who want to add some new recipes to their repertoire. Yum!

Format: Paperback
I have several vegan cookbooks and I use them all periodically. Burton's cookbook is very nice and her recipes are very tasty. There are only two items which keep this from being a five star vegan cookbook in my opinion. First is that there is no nutritional information. Second is that many of the recipes are a little complicated, time consuming, or require many ingredients. Not all, but some. So in comparing this to the two Lindsay Nixon books, this is a little lacking (Nixon's books have nutritional information). Just a little!

It's still a great and thorough vegan recipe book. Many of the recipes are not "meat substitute recipes" but are instead dishes just made from vegan ingredients. Burton has obviously prepared and tasted and tested these dishes (unlike a few other vegan cookbooks out there that make me wonder if they actually made their dishes - looking at you BabyCakes!). Most of the ingredients are items that I have on hand. Keeping dried beans, lentils, and fresh greens handy definitely makes many of these recipes more accessible. There are a few that have ingredients that I doubt most people keep on hand, but then that's what quick shopping trips are for. I found that I have on hand the ingredients for about 1/3 of her recipes (not counting the desserts), and I feel that I keep a pretty 'normal' vegan pantry. But I don't regularly use xanthum gum, agar, and such. She is also a huge fan of various nuts and potatoes, so if you're a fan, then these will appeal to you.

There are a few pages in the center of the book with pictures, but not many. And the binding is rather cheap, so putting this book into a recipe book holder will certainly shorten its life expectancy.
