The Queer Vegan Food Cookbook

Sarah Brown-Queer Vegan Food-E Book Cover-r4-01

You may remember Sarah E. Brown from the Green Recovery post that she and her partner, Courtney Pool, write for Choosing Raw. It was one of the more popular posts in the series, and it explored some of the connections between recovery, veganism, and sexuality. Sarah and I have stayed in touch since then, and I’m always excited to read her musings on food, health, and self-care over at her blog, Queer Vegan Food. Sarah loves exploring the unexpected in ways both intellectual and culinary, and so it should come as no surprise that her new e-book, the Queer Vegan Food cookbook, features vegan recipes that are highly unusual, yet absolutely delicious.

Some of my favorite vegan culinary talents have contributed to this book, including Lisa Pitman (whose own e-book I reviewed last week), Allyson Kramer, Heathy Pace, and Ali Seiter. I love these women as friends and as blogging colleagues, and it’s delightful to see their recipes in one place.

My own peanut butter and tomato sauce and chocolate and zucchini smoothie are featured in the ebook, too! Tried, true, and queer ingredient combinations.

The best thing about this ebook, however, is not the food. It’s the fact that 100% of the proceeds–that’s right, all of them–go to benefit the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, where I first started to become attuned to a compassionate viewpoint. I cannot imagine a more worthy cause, or a more delicious way to serve it.

If you’re hoping to add some exceptionally creative new recipes to your routine, to support a great cause, and to celebrate the work of vegan bloggers and activists whom you probably already know and love, I highly recommend purchasing a copy of the Queer Vegan Food Cookbook. I’m super excited to explore the recipes myself!

On that note, I’m wrapping up a couple of days in NYC, where I came to blow off some much needed steam after a spell of intense studiousness in DC. It was great to see Jasmin and Sayward among other really dear friends, and to have a little fun. And now it’s back to reality. See you all soon with a new recipe.

  1. Just had a look at the queer vegan food cookbook preview and can’t wait to get my hands on a copy! The recipes look so quirky and original. I love the idea of vegan chefs coming together and sharing their talents 🙂

  2. How utterly, amazingly awesome! Sounds like a hall of fame of many people I admire from a distance or love from afar, or both.

    Glad you had you some NY time!
    Hope we can catch up soon!
    love

  6. I’ve seen this advertised for some time now and think it’s a great idea and incredible resource. As you know, I’m all about donating book proceeds to animal causes, which just makes this project all the more unique and beneficial to all involved!

    Thank you to everyone who was a part of such a neat thing–you included 🙂

  7. YOU are the love of MY vegan life! 🙂 Isn’t this book so much fun?! Such an honor to be a part of it.
