La Dolce Vegan!

Categories: Cookbooks, Cooking tips, Food Culture, Vegan


Know someone that has decided to go vegan?  Have you decided yourself?  La Dolche Vegan is a great book for any beginner vegan.  The recipes are simple to follow, and the ingredients are easy to find in the store.  Sarah Kramer includes recipes with faux meats, and also just straight up veggie fare.  In the back, she gives ideas on how to substitute the things I would never give up such as butter, but you will be impressed by how she gets around those things.  The author of the book Sarah Kramer is super cute.  She includes recipes from her friends, her husband (Wolfie), and lots of pictures of not just food but all the cute outfits she owns.  I would rate this book 3.5 stars and the only reason why I am not rating it 4 is just because I wish the book was bigger.
