With its quintessentially vegan-sounding recipe namesApple-Hemp Muffins, Balsamic-Garlic Flax Oil (to dip with bread), Millet-Amaranth Porridge, Vickis Hummus-Quinoa Casserolethis cookbook certainly has a specific audience. But vegan readers are in for a treat, because Burton (The Everyday Vegan) has compiled a trove of (mostly) fast and easy recipes for dishes that promise to deliver flavor and texture, and use fresh produce as well as whole grains (like kamut, brown rice, quinoa and millet), beans (including adzuki, kidney, navy and chickpeas) and flours (such as spelt, barley and oat). All dishes are animal-free, and many are wheat-free, as well. In addition to the recipes (which run the gamut from appetizers to main dishes to desserts), there are sections on feeding vegan babies and toddlers, and a helpful glossary that explains such ingredients as blackstrap molasses and hemp seed nut butter.

Vancouver Humane Society Newsletter (Vancouver Humane Soc)
Vive le Vegan! welcomes a new vegan cook with open arms.... this is a book to grow into, and a good companion for years of culinary adventure. Vive le Vive!
VegNews (VegNews Magazine)
Homemakers magazine names Vive le Vegan as one of its 5 Favorite Vegetarian Cookbooks:
While many vegetarian recipes are heavy on cheese and other dairy ingredients, vegan cooking offers the added challenge of omitting all animal products. Not only does Burton meet this challenge with her recipes, but the book also offers many wheat-free and soy-free recipes for those with allergies to these common ingredients. This is her second vegan cookbook (the first was The Everyday Vegan), and it was inspired by her experience as a vegan mother, learning how to provide nutritious, animal-free and delicious food for her daughter. She shares what she's learned about vegan parenting in the chapter "Feeding Your Vegan Baby and Toddler." And as any busy parent will love, the majority of recipes are designed for the time-challenged.
Dreena Burton author of the much beloved The Everyday Vegan, has outdone herself.... The recipes are simple, highly nutritious, and most importantly, delectable.... Vive le Vegan! is a marvelous recipe book but also serves as a guide for healthy vegan eating, with information on feeding vegan babies, how to cook grains and beans, and interesting hemp foods. A must for all serious vegan chefs and new veggies alike.

Vegan cookie challenge: In the chocolate chip category, there was a clear winner. Dreena, the queen of cookies, did not disappoint. Her homestyle chocolate chip recipe from Vive le Vegan stood out against the competition. The judges described being transported back to their childhoods by Dreena's moist, chewy and chocolaty delights.

This book is a wonderful resource for the vegan family and those who are looking for wheat free alternatives or wheat free recipes. It also has a whole section at the end for feeding babies and toddlers with a lot of great information.

What I love the most about this book is that the ingredients are healthy, the recipes are quick and easy, and the prep time is minimal. Not to mention the fact that every recipe I've made (and I've made quite a few!) has been absolutely delicious.
From the breakfast chapter, the Apple Oat and Banana Bliss Pancakes are staples in our home. You may be tempted to avoid the Millet-Amaranth Porridge in the chapter because it might sound too "healthy" - but don't! It's SO delicious. My family of four devours it. It's comfort in a bowl, and a nice change of pace from oatmeal. Plus, it's a good way to introduce two grains that, if you're like me, stare at you from your cupboard every time you open it because you don't know what to do with them. :)
The Muffins and Baked Goods section of my book has lots of splatters in it from all the use it has gotten. I turn to it often when I want to make something sweet, but still good-for-you. I know the Banana Oat Bundles and Blueberry Bounty Buns recipes by heart. They are so darn tasty, and great for breakfasts on the go or to stick in a lunchbox as a treat.
The Cannellini Bean Yam Hummus is so good and I often serve it to guests. I do not buy store bought hummus any more because there really is no comparison once you've made this. Also, the Lemon-Herb Tofu is luscious. Other dishes in constant rotation in our house are the Chipotle Corn Black Bean Soup, Chickpea Ratatouille, Chipotle Veggie-Bean Burritos (one of my absolute favorites, especially with the Creamy Avocado Cashew sauce- mmmm!), Rosemary Seasoned Tofu Balls, and Veggie Stirfry with Spicy Almond Sauce.
Worth the price of the book alone are the Chocolate P-Nut Butter Squares. They are out of this world. Decadent yet healthy (odd to use those two words together, but it's the truth!) her desserts satisfy but don't leave you feeling weighed down. The brownies are perfect, and her Chocolate Chip Cookies are to die for.
Thank you, Dreena, for all the wonderful recipes and for helping me to feed my family well.
Dreena's conversational style and fun, nutritious recipes make this book an enjoyable guide to vegan eating. I very strongly recommend this cookbook to anyone who loves unique and delicious recipes. The chapter on feeding your baby and toddler is an added bonus.
