Editorial Reviews

Review

“[D]ecidedly unpreachy...[A] really funny book, which isn’t something most cookbooks—especially not most vegan cookbooks—can claim....Recipes are simple and approachable, and they cover everything....The author demystifies ingredients with ‘WTF is...?’ boxes, and many recipes feature smartphone scan codes that lead readers to a relevant cooking video—a nice interactive touch in this fresh, of-the-moment volume.”
Publishers Weekly

“Anyone who starts out a cookbook with a quote from Mr. Spock is already a winner in our (cook)book. The Sexy Vegan isn’t short on anything: humor, sass, creativity, or delicious food. We’re particularly excited about Patton’s breakfast chapter aptly titled ‘The Second Most Important Meal of the Day, After Cocktails.’ Humor and the Mostest Ultimate-est Breakfast Sandwich in the History of the Universe? We’re in love.”
VegNews.com

“More irreverent than sexy, this new vegan cookbook puts a zesty spin on traditionally meat-centric dishes, such as burgers, sliders, and ribs.”
Library Journal

“Reserve a spot on your bookshelf for this one. It’s a must-have!”
Ed Begley, Jr., actor, activist, and author of Living Like Ed: A Guide to the Eco-Friendly Life

“Brian Patton takes the mystery out of cooking with easy-to-find ingredients and simple presentation. And with sexy offerings like the Portly Fellow, Bourbon Tempeh Sliders, and Buffalo Wangs, this is the perfect book for the veg-curious or the veg-committed.”
Rory Freedman, coauthor of Skinny Bitch

“Jam-packed with unfussy yet inventive recipes that anyone can make. The perfect starting point for dudes (and dudettes) with minimal cooking skills, and quite possibly the most-fun-to-browse vegan cookbook ever.”
Vegan.com

I just got my copy of the book after being a fan of his YouTube videos for years, and it exceeds expectations. Considering he's a fun guy, let's start with The Portly Fellow, his version of a portobello mushroom sandwich. The scan code is a very cool touch, but his instructions were so easy I didn't even need it. I just watched the video for entertainment afterward while dining on my mushroom burger. I'm also a huge fan of the snackage chapter; his guac has been one of my favorites for a while, and the onion dip and salsa were just as tasty. I could go on, but I'd rather spend my time cooking and eating this awesomeness.

I have declared April "Vegan Month" (is there already a Vegan month? Hold on....yep, it's November - sorry Vegans, don't want to wait that long), and am going to plough through as many recipes as I can.

In conclusion, should our paths ever cross, I'd like to present Mr. Patton with a bouquet of asparagus and a (artichoke) heart-y thank you for making my life healthier. Kudos to you, TSV.

Whoa. This is my first Amazon review.

The Sexy Vegan created a cookbook. It's a vegan cookbook, a funny cookbook, a masculine cookbook and, frankly, an inspired cookbook.

After hearing tell of this cookbook (I'm basically just trying to say 'cookbook' as many times as I can in this review. Apparently.), I checked out the Sexy Vegan Youtube videos. My roommate and I literally laughed out loud, numerous times, and couldn't stop clicking on links to take us to other videos. Other than being hilarious, the recipes actually looked really good and fairly easy. And one of his videos actually made jackfruit tacos, which have always sounded weird to me, sound like something I may be willing to try, someday.

The cookbook proved to be the same. The ingredients for each of the recipes are ones that I typically have at my house, and if not, are super easily acquired. Each recipe comes with a funny story and simple instructions.

I love that there's a section for cocktails. And I love that the section is called "The Most Important Meal of the Day"; my kind of vegan. I'm dying to try the Bloody Mary recipe (named "The Bloodbath").

My roommate and I have cooked two items from the book so far: jalapeno poppers and marinated mushrooms. The poppers are not traditional (no cream cheese) but they were fun, quick and tasty. The mushrooms reminded me of how awesome marinating vegetables is, and they're great on salads.

With cute "WTF" blurbs and tips scattered throughout the pages, Brian offers ingredient and cooking method explanations for those who may not know how to chiffonade basil or how to roast red peppers.

I've been vegan for many years, I own a large assortment of vegan cookbooks and have read countless more. I can't think of any other cookbook I've wanted to show to every single person that comes to my house. The book is funny (like, really funny), inspired and easy to follow. I love the "WTF" tips and the fact that the pages are splattered with red wine, which is what actually happens to all of my cookbooks. Most vegan cookbooks are written by women, it's refreshing to see one not only written by a man but totally playing up the dude angle with breakfast recipes like "Hangover Hash" and "The Real Man's Quiche", a cocktail called "The Dirty Dudetini" (in the section entitled "Most Important Meal Of The Day") a sandwich called "The S.I.L.F" (you know what I'm saying here), plus chapters dedicated to cocktails, pizza, sandwiches and ice cream. Though the book doesn't have many pictures, it does a great job of catching your attention with fun recipe names, quirky instructions and informative tips throughout. This is the book you give to your brother-in-law that has been talking about eating less meat, your lazy vegan friend that likes snack foods, your co-worker with A.D.D who needs constant entertainment to hold his attention and you pick one up for yourself because it is the damn sexiest cookbook out there.

A few things you should know about me before reading my review:
1) I have never written a review for a cookbook on Amazon
2) I'm not a vegetarian - although I eat a primarily plant-based diet and my family is moving in that direction.
3) I am health conscious and while we create our weekly menus based on that value, we are not fat or calorie phobic. We try to focus on whole foods and I believe in well balanced, good tasting meals.
4) I love to cook and do so for my husband, who is open to plant-based eating but also enjoys a great cheeseburger from time to time. And I cook for our 5 year old daughter who can at times be hard to please.
5) And I adore cookbooks. I actually read them cover to cover. And I feel like after years of doing this - as well as cooking from them (a lot!) - I have a pretty good idea of not only what I like, but what will taste good and what makes an appealing recipe.
6) I have no affiliation with the Sexy Vegan. In fact I didn't know he existed until this cookbook popped up in the "Other Customers Viewed" section of Amazon last week.

I just got this cookbook yesterday. So you might wonder why on earth I'm writing a review already. But I wanted to write because I saw a review saying that there was nothing appealing in this cookbook. Now, everyone is entitled to his or her opinion, and I'm in full support of that. But I just wanted say that I couldn't be more excited to dive into this cookbook. I read it cover to cover yesterday and stopped marking recipes that I wanted to try because I was marking too many pages for it to be a worthwhile endeavor.

I did make the Peanut Butternut Squash Soup last night and I (and my family) LOVED it.
