THE VEGAN 8 COOKBOOK
100 Simple, Delicious Recipes Made With 8 Ingredients or Less
Just like on my blog, the recipes are all 8 ingredients or less, not including salt/pepper/water. With several recipes, I will list optional garnishes and sometimes an occasional ingredient as an option, but they are not required.
!UPDATE AS OF DECEMBER 2019!
My book SOLD OUT back in June in the US on Amazon. Additionally, since my book happened to sell out at the same time my publisher (Oxmoor House) merged with another company (Meredith Corp.), they took awhile to select a new distributor for their books (months). The distributor is FINALLY back in place this December and it is now available for orders again! On Amazon only at the moment until they have a lot of prints available to distribute to all major retailers.
Since so many books have to be reprinted and put back in stock, they are not expected to ship out until February/March-ish, but you want to at least place your order now to ensure you have your copy reserved. Once the books are PRINTED BACK IN STOCK, it will be shipped to you and you will not be charged until it is sent out from Amazon.
Also, the MORE DEMAND of book orders will hopefully get them back in print that much faster.
DO NOT BUY from the 3rd party sellers on Amazon with insanely high prices, they are ripoffs.
You CAN get my book via kindle immediately though!
You can click any of the icons below for US orders (I would think Amazon is easiest though for tracking) and the links below for International orders.

OTHER EXCITING DETAILS
They’ve given so many beautiful details to my book that I’m so grateful for. There will be beautiful spreads and lifestyle shots throughout the entire book, so it has a very well thought out design and feeling of love during the creation process. This was SO important to me and I can’t wait for you all to see it.
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 also does not include chocolate chips, since cocoa butter is the natural ingredient in chocolate chips.

Some sneak peeks! Watch the video to get some peeks at some of my favorite recipes from the book!
VIDEO SNEAK PEEK!
Watch the video to get some peeks at some of my favorite recipes from the book! Obviously this video just shows a few of the recipes, some of my very favorites, but it should get you salivating at least. Who am I kidding, I love ALL the recipes in the book but these were all big hits with taste testers! That pasta salad may look simple but the flavor is phenomenal. BIG hit with taste testers. My secret OIL-FREE vinaigrette is unbelievably delicious.
Couple of other sneak peeks!
Showstopper Chocolate Cake
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.
Cajun Corn and Potato Chowder. So dang creamy, full of flavor and ultimate comfort food. We eat this all the time and it’s one of my hubby’s favorites.
Ultimate BBQ Bean Ball Sub. Talk about pleasing meat-eaters. This one was devoured by my non-vegan family and my brother, a big meat-eater absolutely loved these! So hearty and full of the most delicious flavor!
Time-Saver Red Beans & Rice. Big hit with taste testers and so full of flavor and quick to make. Also, that very special amazinggggg cornbread is also in the book and has a very special ingredient. 😉 The best cornbread I’ve had to date.
Crowd-Pleasing Brownies. These truly are the most magical brownies I’ve ever made or eaten. Just look at ’em. Rich, fudgy-but not wet, not cakey, super chocolatey and the perfect taste and texture you’d ever desire in a brownie. They will remind you of the classic boxed kind of brownies, thick, chewy, hearty and certainly nowhere near do they look or taste vegan. I offer both a gluten-free and regular all-purpose flour version.
Bakery-Style Blueberry Muffins. Everything you’d want and expect in a bakery muffin. These are legit guys. So soft, so tender, so fluffy, not dense, tall, light, perfectly sweetened and with a golden crunchy topping. I offer both a gluten-free and regular all-purpose flour version.
Ultimate Comfort Chocolate Chip Cookies. Throw away all other recipes, this is the only one you’ll need ever again. Ok, kidding, but when I say these are the best dang cookies I’ve ever eaten, I’m not lying one bit. Thanks to a couple of my secrets, these are perfection. These were made at the cookbook shoot and everybody absolutely loved them, (none of them were vegan)! I offer both a gluten-free and regular all-purpose flour version.
Drooling yet? Go order now!
