"Check out The Lusty Vegan for a lively examination of the possiblities for love and passion between two people with widely divergent eating habits." (Karin E. Baker, Huffington Post)

"...Howell and co-author Zoe Eisenberg dish out all the dirt of co-existing in a meat-filled world; think part cookbook, part advice and part sex education for vegans dating non-vegans." (Tyrus Townsend, JET)

As a mere quasi-vegan I am in love with The Lusty Vegan! The recipes are super flavorful and intricate while many of them can be prepared in very little time. In other words: perfection. Not to mention the funny and insightful stories!! I'm in love!

Everything I've tried so far has taken me to a culinary nirvana. I tried the popcorn, prepared the cauliflower steaks and the Hearts of Palm Lobster Roll. Perfection.

There are a lot of careless typos in this book that kind of bug me. So far the recipes I have made are delicious though.

I've been a lifelong vegan and experienced many relationships with vegans and non vegans alike. I wish I had this book years ago when I first started dating! I love the writing style, approachable, informative and full of helpful anecdotes. The photos are well done and the recipes speak for themselves in their uniqueness and deliciousness. I never thought I would find a book that so well encompassed veganism and relationships, and I am so grateful this one has found it's way onto my kitchen shelf! I can't wait to see what these talented chefs and writers come up with next!

The Lusty Vegan is like two books in one. On one hand, it's a dating/relationship advice book covering a multitude of topics, such as vegans dating non-vegans and how they can traverse the many challenges of dating an omnivore. The authors share their experiences of how being vegan affected some of their relationships in the past, and how their vegan-ism was perceived by the other party in the relationship. Hence, the "lusty" part. The writing is light and super witty and makes for a great read.

If you aren't looking for relationship advice or if that sort of read just ain't your bag, baby, I'd STILL recommend that you get this book. I'm not even a vegan - I just generally love to eat healthy and try new foods that I don't usually cook - and the recipes are fantastic! I especially enjoyed the Korean Bibambap and the tips for what to do with tofu. From a food standpoint, the book is super educational. The authors discuss the pros and cons of various cooking oils, non-dairy milks, and proteins, allowing the reader to make his or her own decision. But dammit. They know what they're talking about, so you should listen to them.

The recipes are super creative and unlike the normal fare you would cook at home on a regular basis, especially if you are of the meat-eating variety. I totally recommend this book - it'd make a great read for anyone looking to change up their eating habits or the perfect gift for your favorite frisky vegan friend or romantic potential!

The recipes are tasty and I love the look and feel of the book. The pretty pictures of food make me want to try making the recipes. I wish other cookbooks had as many pictures. The stories are fun and have a lighthearted tone. I really enjoyed this and would recommend it to anyone who is a vegan or even to those who casually eat vegan dishes.

These recipes will appeal to anyone! Most of them can be made with what I usually stock in my kitchen. Everything I have tried is delicious. I'm so found of it, I'm now buying another one to gift to a friend.

Format: Paperback
Great book for non vegans just looking for a few different ideas/ingredients/methods.
It is funny and personal...a bloggish style of book with lots of stories that go with the recipes. I was vegetarian for many years but now eat meat once a month or so, so as a non-vegan, these recipes are fairly simple and intrigued me enough to go back out a second time today in search of Palm Hearts in Brine and Jack Fruit in brine...only found the latter...so off to Chinatown tomorrow. The writers both have a humorous chatty style and I'm now about to track down their blogs. If you would like to be more creative with your cooking, and or, have Vegans in your social/family circle...get this book!
