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.

Another helpful section that offers practical information is "Cooking Guides & Notes" where the author provides guides to cooking grains and beans and other "Cooking Notes." A comprehensive glossary is also useful.
Burton's support of hemp foods is a welcome addition to this recipe book and will hopefully encourage other cookbook authors to feature this nutritious food in their books. Not only does Burton include a section on "Hemp Foods," but she also mentions the importance of hemp in the Introduction.
"This is one of the few cookbooks you will see that features hemp products. Hemp seed nuts and nut butter provide complete protein and essential fatty acids that we can only get from our diet. Hemp seed oil is also rich in the essential fatty acids." (page 14)
Another interesting aspect of Burton's book involves the relatively small number of recipes that contain soy. Burton's reason for minimizing her use of soy is simple. "I suspect that many vegetarians and vegans rely a little too heavily on soy, and while I still include it in my family's diet, no one food should be consumed excessively." (page 14) Burton also includes numerous wheat-free recipes and recipes which feature a wheat-free option.
It's nice to see that vegan recipe books are becoming more popular.Read more ›
Vive le Vegan! is a follow-up to Dreena Burton's first cookbook, The Everyday Vegan, which featured vegan cooking as something that can be done at home. Having had children since the release of Everyday Vegan encouraged Burton to make an updated vegan cookbook, slightly more family oriented. The recipes in Vive le Vegan! are designed to take less time out of a parent's busy schedule, and there is even a back section of the book devoted to bringing up your own little baby vegan. It contains year-by-year advice on what vegan foods are best for the baby at that time, as well as how they are prepared. Burton raised both of her children using this very schedule.
As a non-vegan, I find it hard to believe that you can make "normal" vegan food. I mean normal as in simple things that you can pronounce and that don't take a whole day to prepare. The author explains that most people share my presumption that cooking vegan translates into preparing gourmet cuisine. But Vive le Vegan! contains simple recipes like chocolate chip cookies and rosemary potatoes. At the same time, Burton stresses that the recipes are not so simple that they lack taste.
I was curious about just how simple these recipes could be, so I tried them. A great aspect of this cookbook is that most of the ingredients can actually be found in a grocery store. Some newer grocery stores even have health food sections for some of the more specialty ingredients.Read more ›
