The Vegan 8 Cookbook LAUNCH DATE!

The Vegan 8 Cookbook LAUNCH DATE!

The Vegan 8 Cookbook: 100 Simple, Delicious Recipes Made with 8 Ingredients or Less. Classic comfort foods made healthier using real, whole food ingredients. No fake cheeses, no fake meats, tofu, green smoothies or boring salads! This is a book that you will find comforting, satisfying, filling and incredibly delicious recipes for your whole family to enjoy!

I cannot believe the day has finally arrived. I have been blogging 6 1/2 years and have worked pretty much non-stop all of that time. Testing recipes, posting on social media, answering emails, comments, recipe requests, fully committed to sharing my passions and creativity with all of you readers. My commitment to you and what I love has kept me going all of this time. Reading your emails of how my recipes have changed your life is honestly why I love to blog, connecting with you, it's my purpose with this blog. I have worked on this book for a long time and have some recipes in it that were written years back.

So, to say that this is such a sweet moment for me, is an understatement. My publisher and editor (Rachel was a blessing!) and the entire team was, by definition, a dream to work with. There is not one thing I asked or requested of how I wanted my book to look, down to every detail, that they did not meet and truly go beyond. The care and love that we ALL poured into this book is hopefully felt by each and every one of you when you read my book.

Look who else is really excited! That smile of hers just melts my heart. She's in the book, too, and feels like a rockstar, haha! She is much cuter than me, so I figured a pic of her next to all my books looked better, lol!

And some EXCITING NEWS??

I'll be giving away 10 SIGNED COPIES in the giveaway below, yayyyy! Thank you to my publisher for allowing me to do this!

  • Comfort foods and classics to please vegans and non-vegans
  • Stunning photo for every single recipe, including, ALL the recipes fit on 1 PAGE, none of this extra turning stuff going on with the recipes.
  • All new recipes with the exception of around 10 that are most popular here on the blog or include a variation of one from the blog
  • Kitchen pantry chapter outlining all the tools I use, baking tips and ingredients in detail. This is a great chapter that you will want to read BEFORE you start cooking!
  • Nutrition stats on every recipe
  • Measurements given in both cups and weight/grams
  • NO tofu, fake meats, fake cheeses, salads or smoothies!
  • All comfort foods in a healthier way
  • A large amount of the recipes I offer special tips on for subs in the recipes

CHAPTERS

  • Kitchen Pantry
  • Breakfast
  • Appetizers & Dips
  • Time-Crunch Lunches (all done in 30 minutes or less, so cool, right?!)
  • Sauces and Dressings
  • Easy Entrees (total comfort food!)
  • Comforting Soups & Stews (one of my favorite chapters!)
  • Scrumptious Snacks & Sides
  • Crowd-Pleasing Desserts
  • Vegan 8 Staples

With several recipes, just like on my blog, I will list optional garnishes and sometimes an occasional ingredient as an option, but of course, not required.

I really tried to make this whole book work for everybody as best as I could. Obviously I can't meet 100% of everybody's needs on every single recipe, but I sure did my best! Most all of the recipes are nut-free or list a nut-free option. There are a few that I don't list a nut-free option, though. Basically the recipes are just like the ones on my blog. Easy, wholesome, comfort foods that will impress anybody, vegan or not. Pastas, soups, impressive breakfasts, party-worthy dips, delicious snacks, stews, hearty meals, amazing-noamazing desserts.

I specifically did ZERO smoothies, NO fake meats, NO fake cheeses, NO tofu, NO oils as an ingredient. Just good, wholesome homemade recipes that will make your tummies very happy. Oil-free means that oil is not a listed ingredient. I only use whole food fats like nuts or seeds in my recipes. This does not count chocolate chips, since cocoa butter is a natural fat in them. There are a small few that use nonstick spray, like for cakes and pancakes, but that is it.

SOME SNEAK PEEKS INTO THE VEGAN 8 COOKBOOK

DOUBLE CHOCOLATE FLUFFY PANCAKES (Pg. 35)

When your taste testers say "This is like eating chocolate cake for breakfast!!", then you know you got a winner! They are so fluffy, so chocolatey and so fabulous.

The entire BREAKFAST CHAPTER is meant to impress guests. This is not a chapter full of boring green smoothies or oatmeals. I went all out on this chapter!

TERIYAKI BURGERS (Pg. 137)

The best veggie burgers I've ever eaten. For real. The flavor, the texture, all of it. I also was told this by taste testers. Check out this stunning book review and also on the burgers from Spabettie, she says, "Extreme layers of flavor, and a quick and easy recipe that is foolproof. Really. These veggie burgers have staying power – as in hunger satisfying and also in that they do not fall apart. These will hold up on a grill." That just about covers it!

SUNFLOWER-CINNAMON SPICE CHIA BALLS (Pg. 55)

OK, I know there are some in the anti-sunbutter camp. I get it, it has kind of a nasty taste and can be overpowering. I'm here to tell you, this recipe will change your view! I am the same way with sunbutter. It's very bitter and strong, but the spices and texture and sweetness hide any of that. They were loved by my taste testers and their kids, so don't hesitate to make these! They are nut-free, also!

ROASTED GOLD POTATOES WITH ROSEMARY SAUCE

Creamy, filling, comfort food in a bowl!

EASY 1-PAN RED CURRY WITH SPINACH AND CARROTS (Pg. 71)

I've made this more times than I can count. It's one of my absolute favorite recipes in the book. It's in the TIME CRUNCH LUNCHES chapter (all made in 30 mins or less) and is so full of flavor and easy ingredients. Many bloggers have made and loved it on the blog tour as well!

ULTIMATE BBQ BEAN BALL SUB (Pg. 138)

To. Die. For. Messy and fabulous. My meat-eating brother downed 3 of these! He loved them that much. If that's not convincing, I don't know what is! Talk about comfort food and 100% healthy plant-based!

ON-THE-GO LEMON POPPY SEED MUFFINS (Pg. 53)

I love to eat these as a snack, they have a rich lemon flavor and are not too sweet, BUT I do offer a dessert option with a glaze that is amazing, too and perfect for guests! A side note: under the tip, it says you can sub with cornstarch. Please ignore this, it is not recommended. Potato starch is the absolute best starch for both texture and flavor here. It makes a huge difference.

TEX-MEX POTATO SKINS (Pg. 60)

A twist on the classic cheese, sour cream and bacon version and while totally different, insanely delicious in its own right.

CREAMY LEMON AND GARLIC WHITE BEAN CROSTINI (Pg. 63)

The perfect appetizer to serve to your guests or dinner party. They are pretty, easy to eat and full of flavor and will keep everybody's tummies happy while having a good time.

PIZZA QUESADILLAS (Pg. 83)

Let me just say this, these pizza quesadillas are my daughter's favorite recipe out of the whole book! My hubby's in love with them too. I've made this recipe probably more than any other new recipe from the book. They are SO GOOD. Tip: Play close attention to the recipe regarding the cheese and the best milk to use is soy milk, it thickens up the best. But, canned make the cheese early in the day and use soy milk for best results. Canned "lite" coconut milk (Thai Kitchen brand is the best) is the next best sub. Lite milks will not do well

TOFFEE-PECAN GLAZED CAKE (PG. 195)

Yes, it's as good as it sounds. Rich flavor, soft texture, 1 bowl and totally oil-free.

CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER CANDY BITES (Pg. 212)

I created these because of my love for Butterfinger candy bars and let me tell you, they taste just like one! I reversed the chocolate and peanut butter, making the coating the crunchy part and interior the chocolate part instead of the way the bar is done and they are to die for. They were also a huge hit with taste testers.

SHOWSTOPPER CHOCOLATE CAKE (Pg. 192)

This is THE CHOCOLATE CAKE. The only one you'll ever need again. It is honestly 100% the best chocolate cake I've ever made, created or eaten for that matter. If you don't believe me, my own mother and father, who are not vegan, declared it the best chocolate cake they had both ever tasted in their lives. make sure you follow the exact steps and use a scale so it turns out perfect! I offer both a regular and a gluten-free version, too.

So, to CELEBRATE this big day in my life, I'm going to be sharing one of my favorite recipes in the book, this THAI CURRY SWEET POTATO DIP is one that will be a sure hit at parties. It was a huge win for taste testers and is a perfect example of what my recipes are: easy, simple, delicious and FULL of flavor.

Is that color not gorgeous or what?? I'm telling you, go make this now. Here is the recipe! I hope you all love this recipe and the whole book in general and if you love the book and enjoy the recipes, I would be SO GRATEFUL for a review on Amazon! Those will help me immensely, thank you so much for all of your support all of these years. THIS BOOK IS DEDICATED TO YOU.

ORDER NOW!

My book is also sold in a number of other countries on Amazon, Target, Walmart and many other bookstores and retailers, including Australia now, yippee!! See my main order page for other places.

Ingredients

  • 1 packed cup (248g) cooked, mashed sweet potato (see NOTES at the bottom)
  • 1 (15oz) (255g) can white cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons (30g) fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons (32g) roasted almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons (30g) low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup (60g) Thai red curry paste (I love Thai Kitchen brand)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • Optional: roasted sliced almonds, fresh chopped basil, crackers, veggies

Instructions

  1. Add the mashed sweet potatoes, beans, lime juice, almond butter, soy sauce, 2 tablespoons (30g) hot water, curry paste, basil, coriander, and salt to a food processor; process for 3 to 4 minutes or until very smooth. Scrape the sides and process again. You want it 100% smooth.
  2. Taste and add more salt, if desired. Garnish with almonds and basil if desired, and serve with chips, crackers, or assorted sliced vegetables.

Notes

Cook the sweet potato (whole with the skin) either in a microwave at HIGH for 5 to 6 minutes (wrapped in plastic wrap) until very tender or bake it at 400F (200C) for 45 minutes to an hour until very soft. I would advise against steaming or boiling, as it will add extra water to the potatoes and dilute the flavor. Peel and mash 1 cup (248g) of the cookie potatoes. The roasted almond butter is slightly sweet, which complements the spicy curry flavor well, but if you're allergic, you can sub with tahini for a slightly different flavor profile than the original recipe.

      Thank you so much Scott! Hahaha, I love how you said "dragged" LOL!
      • It hasn't been easy, but you know how people are when they are stuck in their ways! It finally took all the parents and grandparents to see their bloodwork numbers drop and normalize and their gout to go away just from giving up meat and dairy and eating greens and beans instead to make them start walking this way instead of me (and the wife) having to drag them against their will. Now we are all on the WFPB journey. Love your recipes, so I'm looking forward to your book.
  28. Congratulations! I'm excited to see your new recipes. Please enter me into the drawing for a signed copy.
  29. Wow! This collection looks amazing! I would love to have a copy!
  30. Finally! A cookbook!! I'm ready to toss out all my loose pieces of paper of your amazing recipe's and have them all in one book. My son has been vegan for three years which required me to research and find recipes for him which soon became recipes for us. So yummy and healthy and most of all EASY! I'm so glad I found your website years ago. Thank you!!
    • brandi.doming@yahoo.com
      Yay, Teresa! Thank you so very much for all of your support all these years, it really means sooo much to me!!
  31. Cyd
    If the pictures can make my mouth water, imagine what the real food will do!!! Can't wait <3
  32. I'm going home to visit my family in Ireland in December, and would LOVE to bring a copy to my brother who just went WFPB this year to kick diabetes to the curb! <3 Congratulations on your gorgeous book, I just love it!!
  33. Want your book for the simple reason that I love your recipes.
    • brandi.doming@yahoo.com
      The perfect reason, thank you Joann!
  34. I remember when I found your website a few years ago and I loved every recipe I tried! I thought, Wow! I would love a cookbook from Brandi! And now here it is! Congratulations! I truly have enjoyed every recipe I've tried. Can't wait to get your back one way or another. :)

I can never get enough vegan recipes and yours look just scrumptious!
  38. My book is coming on 1st November! I’m excited and will head straight to page 182. I would love a signed copy for my daughter a vegan for many years. She’s coming to oz for Christmas so I will impress her with my vegan recipes! Where can I buy your book in Australia?

I can't wait to get home and get it. Congrats on the launch and such an amazing cookbook. It looks amazing. You really are so talented and I am so happy I came across your blog. Your recipes are literally the only recipes I make. I haven't been cooking much lately because I am trying to narrow down some food that I am reacting too. So I have another month of this elimination diet and I will slowly add things back in to figure out what it is. Just know that no matter what I am a huge fan of your recipes and I am so excited to have your book even if I don't rush to make the recipes, the first thing I cook when I start cooking again will be one of your recipes. That will be in about a month from now. In the meantime I will be constantly looking through your book and dreaming. Thank you so much for putting out this cookbook. I have wanted one from you ever since finding your blog.
  51. Just took my copy out of the mailbox! Excited to start cooking my way through it :-)

  72. WOW Brandi!!! I'm thrilled for you! I have loved every recipe of yours that I have tried. You pour your heart and soul into your family, your work, and your readers. We are so grateful to have someone with your creativity and talent shining the light on how delicious and simple a healthy plant based diet can be. You put positivity out into the world on so many levels. How you create such delectable dishes and desserts with just 8 ingredients is unfathomable! As a recipe follower, I'm so thankful for recipe creators like you. My creativity is not in the kitchen, so I NEED people like you to walk with me on this plant based journey. What a big day this is for you, but I'm sure you will continue to have other big days ahead because you are an artist, and you'll always be creating masterpieces. I would be elated to win a copy of your book (fingers crossed), but for sure I will have one. Hugs to you! :)
  73. Everything looks so delicious I am looking forward to trying them all out with my granddaughters.
  74. Pam
    Love your recipes because they have few ingredients but more importantly because you always seem to get the spices and flavors right! Not boring and plain but full of great taste!

    • brandi.doming@yahoo.com

      Yay Karen, I can't wait to hear!!
  83. Arrived today! Love the variety. The photos make me drool---they are works of art. And the recipes look as good as what we have come to expect from you! Can't wait to try them. I think this book could really convince some people to go vegan/WFPB. I wish doctors and nutritionists would recommend it. I got a kick out of all the sweet potato recipes---you seem to like them as much as I do! I am sure those of us who eat WFPB eat a whole lot more sweet potatoes than the white potatoes that people who don't eat WFPB have, usually fried. You should be very proud of yourself. We'll even let you take a (short) break from your blog to recharge while we work on some of the fantastic-looking and reading recipes in the cookbook!
  84. Your photos look delicious! I would love to win a copy. Thank you for coming up with such amazing recipes!!

      Thank you so much Christine!
  85. Love your recipes and can’t wait to see the book! Congratulations! Btw, your gingerbread pancakes are known at our house as birthday pancakes (requested by my 3 and 6 year old for their birthdays) 😁 we would love to receive a signed copy!
    • brandi.doming@yahoo.com
      Oh, that is so wonderful to hear Erin! That is one of my oldest recipes, so I'm thrilled to hear they are requested by both of your little ones, yay!
  86. The 'sneak peeks" look amazing! Can't wait to get a hold of a copy of The Vegan 8 Cookbook and try out these recipes!
  87. Congrats on the new book coming out. I don't know what i want more the chocolate cake or the chocolate candy peanut bites. I want to win the cookbook because you are always finding ways to make good vegan food that is tasty.
  88. This looks amazing! Delicious and simple. I can't wait for the cookbook and to share with family and friends. Eating vegan doesn't have to be complicated to be delicious! Thank you for your incredible work.
  89. Congratulations on your book! I pre-ordered my book a while back, but don’t have it yet. Can’t wait to get it! If I win a signed copy, I’ll give my purchased copy to my sister. I love your blog and your recipes!
  90. I just ordered my copy of The Vegan 8 Cookbook! I have family coming in to visit on Saturday and am excited to try out your recipes - I know they'll love them!
  91. I love the concept of the book. The sneak peek recipes look really good and convinced me this book will have something for me. I'm new to vegan eating and simple recipes without smoothies or fake substitutes is just what I need right now. I would love to win a signed copy!
    • brandi.doming@yahoo.com
      I'm so happy to hear it fits exactly what you are looking for, thank you Jenn!
  92. You are the #1 plant-based blogger I follow, and I'm thrilled to get a copy of your new cookbook! Congrats on its release!
  93. I can’t wait to cook my way through this book! My copy arrived today, and I was drooling over all the gorgeous food! I would like a signed copy so I can have an extra on hand when this one gets overused lol.
  94. Wow! You're so super talented! I've been following your blog for years, and you never cease to amaze me with your creativity and the care you take with each and every recipe. Congrats to you! I'm sure your cookbook will be nothing less than extraordinary!
  95. I already proffered your book on May earlier this year but I would love to get myself signed copy and give my copy to a vegan couple as housewarming gift!
  96. So excited about your book, can't wait to own it! Mucho congrats!
  97. Love your recipes! So easy and so delicious!!
  98. These recipes all sound amazing - I'm loving those potatoes and would love the book to make them for Thanksgiving!
  99. I love that you make it clear...no fake cheese, no fake meats, no oils...this is plant-based food at its best. I would love to cook from this cookbook!
  100. I love all of your recipes and can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this. Congrats!!
  101. Congrats and this cookbook looks amazing! You've really covered all the bases here! Can't wait to try out the pizza quesadillas!
  102. Congratulations. Love your recipes.
  103. Love to have the recipe and pic infront of me when preparing a recipe. Would love to have you sign your book as an extra treat.
  104. I have to admit, I’ve been drooling over your recipes for months and I am embarrassed to say I have not yet tried one! The book launch is a great excuse to get going and give it a try. So excited to check out all the tasty recipes!
  105. Congratullations! The chocolate cake has me drooling, but I'll be trying many of these recipes. Thank you.
  106. What an achievement! Your book looks awesome.
  107. Pam
    So excited to try the new recipes in your book. It’s beautiful. Congratulations!!
  108. Congratulations!
  109. Hi Brandi, I finally got my comment to go through. I am looking forward to getting your first book and would love for that to be a signed copy as I’m sure it will not be your last. Your such an inspiration to many with such simple and excellent tasting recipes. My hubby is hard to please but has enjoyed many of yours, especially the mint Girl Scout cookies...yum. Congratulations again and thanks for your hard work.
  110. Wow this is amazing. Xmas dinner in the making
  111. Oh Brandi..... all your work representing years of effort in a beautiful cookbook! So happy for you and so nice to have your family in it with you! I love your dedication —-as one of your blog fans for 5 years, how much I have appreciated having you for a reliable resource. I already know I need more copies to give to friends and family! Congratulations and thanks for sharing your family with us!
  112. Wow, this looks like it will be really useful and practical! I am looking forward to trying the seeet potato dip tomorrow. Why would I like to have the cookbook? I am especially looking forward to the simplicity and short prep time as I am quite busy. But my husband and I like to eat our main meal at noon, in between his two music ensemble classes, in which I am involved, so quick is essential. I also like the exclusion of “fluff” recipes, like smoothies, that leave more room for full meal deals! Good luck and God bless as you launch this.
  113. Amazing. Xmas dinner sorted!
  114. Congratulations! I have pre-ordered the book; it should arrive tomorrow! If I win a copy, I will keep probably the signed one and give my pre-ordered one to a friend or perhaps donate it to Ching Farm's (a local farm sanctuary) silent auction for their annual cruelty-free Thanksgiving Fundraiser!!

  116. So excitied to get the book on launch day! I love love love every recipe I have madefrom your blog, which is nearly all since I found you as soon as you began bloging. Vegan 8, simple, not intimidating, AMAZING textures and flavors!!! I have a notebook of your printed off recipes. So happy to have your beautiful book. I would love love love to have a personally signed copy. It would be so exciting to keep a signed copy and gift my purchsed copy to a dear friend who is a personal chef who always tells me to keep on sharing my no oil vegan 8 favorite recipes from your blog. Guess I am one of his reliable taste/texture testers. Ha ha ...mmm. Thank you so much. You are an inspiration!
  117. Brandi, congratulations on your cookbook. Looking forward to the recipes as all of the ones I have tried from your emails have been delicious.
  118. Ann
    Congratulations❣️ Hope you get your book into the on- board bookstore for the March 2018 Holistic Holiday at Sea, http://www.atasteofhealth.org/events. Gorgeous photographs. Just ordered my copy, and would love another for gifting. Can’t wait to try some of these recipes - like that BBQ Bean Ball Sub - on my non-vegan hubby!
  119. Congratulations on the book, it looks amazing! So excited to get it. I've been following you since I became vegan 2.5yrs ago - after my mums hairdresser raved about you! I'm the only vegan in the family and in my circle of friends, so I always have to provide my own food at gatherings. And your recipes always go down a storm! Thank you for making vegan food so easy and so bloomin tasty!
  120. Found you recently, this looks really good, excited for you and for the chocolate goodness.
  121. Congratulations!
  122. I have been waiting for this cookbook to walk into my life! It would be a great help for my hubby on his cook nights.
  123. Congrats on the cookbook launch! I'm new to your site ... I have been vegan since January, and I have since been in the process of transitioning my whole family (wife, 14 y/o son and 12 y/o daughter). I have struggled quite a bit with making sure my daughter, in particular, gets her nutritional needs met since she is very finicky. Finding recipes with limited ingredients that she can help cook with me would be a godsend. It has been challenging to find quick yet nutritious meals we all enjoy! This would be a great help to us on our journey.
  124. I am going to have to pre-order this cookbook after looking at the sneak peek recipes. They look delicious!
  125. Congratulations, the photos look really good!
  126. You blog is one of my absolute favorite vegan sites!!! I use so many of your recipes in my daily life! Your vegan noodle soup is hands-down my favorite thing to cook, and your cinnamon roll in a mug is such a delicious sweet breakfast treat! Thank you for making such an exciting cookbook!! I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!!
  127. Congratulations! Can't wait to get a copy--hope I win!
  128. Yay!!! Finally a way to prove to people that vegan recipes can be simple and delicious at the same time.
  129. Congratulations! You create delicious recipes with no (or little) oil and I just love that. Looking forward to getting this cookbook.
  130. I received my book yesterday and it looks awesome! It's exactly how I like to cook: easy, whole-foods based hearty meals with no oil! I can't wait to start cooking through it!
  131. What a completely wonderful cookbook, congrats! Loving the sample recipes!
  132. The new book looks fabulous! Congratulations!
  133. Congratulations! I look forward to making your recipes! 👍🏼📚😁
  134. Lucky me I have a birthday coming and I've been putting out hints for this book for months... Congratulations! Can't wait to pour into it :)
  135. Hah! "Why," she asks, would I want to win a copy of this amazing masterpiece? LOL that leaves me speechless. Why would I want to win the lottery? Why would I want an all-expenses-paid trip to the Bahamas? Um, because it's freaking awesome maybe? I keep scrolling back to the Roasted Gold Potatoes with Rosemary Sauce and drooling. Geez, does the book come with a bib? :)
  136. I'm really excited for you book! The recipes look amazing and I love to cook!
  137. I love there will be another resource out there for delicious, simple meals without a million ingredients! Congrats on your book!!!
  138. I cannot wait to get my copy of your wonderful book! I have pre-ordered already, but would love to get a signed copy for myself and I can share my other copy with my best friend! 💓👏
  139. I paged through my sister's copy of the book yesterday, and instantly decided I need my own!! Holy YUM!
  140. I can't WAIT to buy this cookbook! I love that every recipe has 8 or less ingredients and it's all REAL food. If I don't win one of the 10, I'm definitely buying a copy! :)
  141. AHHHHHHH! Brandi I am beyond excited for you, I can't believe the day has finally come!! Amazon hurry up and get mine too me already, I need chocolate PB candy bites and the most perfect vegan chocolate cake in my life already😍 And I can't say for sure, but it's possible you just made history with the first ever vegan cookbook with ZERO smoothies in it haha😆 From everything you've described and all the sneak peeks on IG along the way this book sounds so wonderfully perfectly you🤗 Can't wait to explore it and taste my way through...especially the snack/dessert section! Biggest most humongous congrats, sweet friend❤️❤️
  142. My copy arrived yesterday, and my kids and I have already marked several recipes to try immediately. I think my mom will enjoy this cookbook as well, and may walk away with it. Congratulations! Anne
  143. This recipe book looks like a winner.
  144. Wow, this book looks great!
  145. Congrats! I love your recipes and print out the ones I make often. Would love to win a copy of your book!
  146. It makes my heart smile to see so many people expressing excitement, congratulations and love for your big moment, Brandi. You deserve absolutely all of it and so much more! This book is off-the-charts FANTABULOUS!! My daughter and I oohed and aahed over single recipe and can’t decide what to make first. I’m thrilled to add an additional copy to my elementary school library as well, as children love cookbooks. (Probably none more than your ADORABLE “model” above. :) Congratulations, Brandi! All your years of hard work and selfless sharing have brought you to this moment. Now it’s time to CELEBRATE!! 🎉
  147. Hello I am so excited to see you published a vegan cookbook that has recipes with no added oil I have 10 stents in my heart so finding recipes that don't have oil important I also try to make appetizing recipes for my co workers I'm trying to show them vegan recipes are delicious and easy to make Thanks again! Melissa
  148. I’m drooling reading this post, so of course I want the book!!
  149. Congratulations! The book, recipes and photos look amazing. I am a little confused about the give away . I clicked on it and only option was to leave blog comment. Are there more things to do?

      • brandi.doming@yahoo.com
        Yes, that’s it! I didn’t add more options so it would be more fair to everybody since not everybody has twitter or Pinterest, etc.
  150. I meant for 5 stars. Can u plz change it!
    • brandi.doming@yahoo.com
      Sadly, it won’t allow me to change it, so please click the 5 Stars again, thank you!
  151. Awesome news about the book - I cannot wait to tell my sister - shes always looking for healthy alternatives of family classics for my niece & nephew and only having 8 ingredients to deal with in each recipe is a major plus for her. Great job :-)
  152. Congratulations!! What an achievement! And your daughter is adorable :))
  153. I'm late to the party with my congratulations...but this is the day I have looked forward to since you announced the cookbook! I finally opened mine and flipped through it and I am so excited to dive in and cook all the vegan things!
  154. Can’t wait!
  155. So far all of the recipes shared from your book look delicious. I'd love to win it. =)
  156. Wow! I'd love a copy of your book, everything looks so delicious. I can cook with my 15-year-old son who is slowly adopting healthy eating habits. I'm a proud mama! :)
  157. Your new cookbook looks fabulous!! Congrats!!
  158. What a wonderful achievement! Best wishes for much success! Made your chocolate pumpkin cake brownies today, three kids were clamoring for more.
  159. Deb
    I am looking forward to making more of your recipes... the cookbook looks fantastic... congratulations...
  160. Congratulations on the book! Like you and your family, I too turned to plants to overcome some health issues. I’m still working on my husband and would love to cook some of these recipes for him to show him vegan food is more than salad!
  161. Can't wait til this comes out! I just do so much better with an actual cookbook in my hands, rather than my phone or an iPad. Plus, with a cookbook, I can make notes in the margin about how well we liked it, or if I tweaked something about it. You just can't do that with a device. Just color me old-fashioned!
  162. My book arrived! Brandi, it's just beautiful. Congratulations on this accomplishment! xoxo
  163. Congratulations! The pictures are so good, just like the recipes. Would love a signed copy because it's better than unsigned, unless I am able to get it signed at a book signing.
  164. Really interested in learning more about vegan cooking 😊
  165. AH! I'm SO excited! I love your blog and would love to get my hands on this book!!! Yay!
  166. Hi Brandi. I pre-ordered your cookbook but have not received it yet. Is there a problem?
    • brandi.doming@yahoo.com
      Hi Debra! The orders don’t go through me, they go through whichever place you made the order, so I would have no way of knowing any details of a customers order. Couple of questions: did you order in the US and was it through Amazon? If through Amazon, they should have the details of your order, so I would follow up with them. All US orders were shipped out the release date week of the 16th but those placed in other countries of course will be much different since the publisher is located in the US.
