“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.”
“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.”

Deciding to fully commit to a vegan lifestyle only 4 months ago, Dreena Burton’s creative genius as a vegan recipe extraordinaire has made our transition a breeze. She has allowed us to realize we can eat a whole foods plant based vegan diet filled with nourishing food such as legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, veggies, grains, and the delicious yet not deathly treats. A diet that does not rely on fake products made to imitate the meat and dairy products we chose to let go of for the sake of our health and the health of animals and the planet.
Unable to eat tofu and much other soy based products, Dreena Burton’s numerous recipes with lentils, and beans keep us satisfied without being bored. Try her awesome Festive Chickpea Tart, Chickpea Pumpkin Seed Burgers, Mediterranean Bean Burgers, Lemon Infused Mediterranean Lentils, Corn Chowder Quinoa Casserole and you will completely understand why Dreena Burton is nicknamed the Queen Bean. Oh and for those of you who say “NO to the ‘fu” not to worry we have tried her Tofu Bake in an Olive, Grape and Herbed Marinade with Chickpeas and it was great. She also does magic with other veggie burgers, including her Mushroom Pecan Burgers, Take II (definitely make with her Almonnaise) and her Nutty Veggie Burgers. To continue her soups are hearty and filling perfect for the chilling evenings of upstate NY. Also we adore her scrumptious sauces, dressings, and sprinkles (Citrus Tahini Dressing, Smokey Spiked Tahini Sauce, Almonnaise, Chipotle Avocado Cream, Brazil Nut Parm) whether on burgers or greens they make everything taste better. They make us look forward to eating our greens every day. While on this tangent about greens LTEV is particularly helpful in its breakdown of how to make Green Smoothies. Try her Salads That Make a Meal, specifically, Three Bean Salad, Quinoa Nicoise, and Smokey Sweet Potato and Black Bean Salad, and you will no longer equate eating a salad with eating rabbit food. Oh and if you are sick and tired of pastas swarming in store bought jars of tomato sauce, then make her Spinach Herb Pistachio Pesto, Tomato Artichoke Pasta, or any other LTEV pasta dish and your fork will be twirling its spaghetti in saucy glee. The best thing though, is that Dreena Burton writes tips and tricks below her recipes and even gives serving suggestions make putting a meal together a cinch. Not to be neglectful to the sweeter side, Dreena Burton’s desserts and breakfast bites deserve nothing but praise and celebration. So far we have made and loved her Citrus Almond Muffins, Whole Grain Chia Pancakes, Monsta! Cookies, Chocolate Cherry Pecan Cookies, Snifferdoodles, Berry Patch Brownies, “Hello Vegan” Bars, Award- Winning Frosted B-rawnies, and Pumpkin Cake and have loved them all. Nothing like satisfying your sweet tooth, curbing a mid morning hunger strike or having an evening treat filled with healthy whole grains, fats, fruits. No more gluttony from refined and processed ingredients that make you feel like you need to desert dessert. (Just to let everyone know these desserts are nowhere near diet deprivation desserts they’re the exact opposites).
Finally, we must end this review of “Let Them Eat Vegan” by saying thank you to Dreena Burton and her family. As aforementioned she has made our transition into a vegan lifestyle a breeze. In a house full of carnivores we feel we can stand our ground as the only plant eaters when the kitchen smells wonderful after making one of Dreena Burton’s recipes. In the last few months since becoming vegan our bodies are healthier, minds clearer and hearts brighter. While we might have made the initial choice to go vegan, every day it is Dreena Burton that allows us to stay faithful to this decision!
We would recommend this book to those who already care or need help starting to care about the wellbeing of themselves, their loves ones, the animals, and the planet!
Dreena details the ingredients she uses at the beginning of the book, complete with information on where to find them and their nutritional benefits. It's a "look inside a vegan pantry" type guide, and is a great reference for those new to vegan cooking and baking. You can tell that she put a lot of work into this book as every recipe comes with a story, as well as suggested swaps and subs for many ingredients- very versatile! Everything that I've made so far has been just amazing, and (most importantly) my kids think so, too. I own many vegan cookbooks, but if I had to choose just one, Let Them Eat Vegan! would be it. I'm so glad I caved in to my cookbook addiction and bought it!
