The Vegan Family Cookbook
By Anna Pippus
2021 • Appetite by Random House
A cookbook and culinary toolkit of more than 100 recipes to get affordable, plant-based family meals on the table—in no time flat.
For many years, Anna Pippus found herself exhausted at the thought of coming up with what to make for dinner every night, until finally she changed how she tackled cooking forever. In The Vegan Family Cookbook, Anna shares the approach she developed to eliminate her mealtime dread: daily cooking themes. Mondays are pasta, Tuesdays are bowls, Wednesdays are one-pot meals, and on Thursdays, it’s all about stir-fries.
Anna’s simple yet flavourful recipes have short ingredients lists and streamlined preparations. Kids will love Peanut Butter Banana Waffles and Mac and Cheesy with Broccoli (to name only a few!), while adults and parents will appreciate fuss-free takes on classics, such as Corn Soup with Sneaky Red Lentils, Lighter Kale Pesto Pasta, and Crispy Sweet and Sticky Tofu. The Vegan Family Cookbook is also filled with scrumptious ideas for breakfast, lunch, and snack time, to round out this family-friendly collection.
Anna not only shows us what to cook, but how to cook nutritious and delicious vegan food, too. The Vegan Family Cookbook is filled with foundational cooking building blocks, like how to ensure your vegan dishes include enough flavour and texture and how to make soup without a recipe. She shares her mix-and-match approach to building bowls, complete with her family’s go-to combinations. In everyday life, we need practical, adaptable meals that come together easily. With this book at your side, you’ll become a resourceful home cook, confidently feeding your family the best of what nature has to offer every day of the week.
