About this item

Being vegan doesn't have to mean living off kale and quinoa, or spending your money on fancy and expensive ingredients. And it definitely doesn't have to mean feeling limited for choices of what to eat! What if "vegan food" could mean cheesy nachos and pizza, hearty burritos, gooey spinach and artichoke dip, decadent chocolate cake or even crème brûlée? Well, it can. In Fuss-Free Vegan, Sam Turnbull shows you that "vegan" does not equal unappetizing dishes, complicated steps, ingredients you have never heard of, or even food that tastes healthy. Instead, she gives you drool-worthy yet utterly fuss-free recipes that will bring everyone together at the table, vegans and non-vegans alike, in a chorus of rave reviews.
This is the cookbook Sam wishes she had when she went vegan: one that recreates and veganizes the dishes she loved most in her pre-vegan days, like fluffy pancakes and crispy bacon, cheesy jalapeño poppers and pizza pockets, creamy Caesar salad and macaroni and cheese, rich chocolate brownies and holiday-worthy pumpkin pie, to name just a few. (And there's no hummus recipe in sight.)
Say goodbye to searching endlessly around for that one special ingredient that you can't even pronounce, or cooking dishes that don't deliver on their promise of yumminess; instead, say hello to ingredients you can pick up at your local grocery store, step-by-step techniques, and Sam's enthusiastic voice cheering you on throughout this fun, approachable cookbook. With 101 tried-and-tested, one-of-a-kind vegan recipes for every meal, from breakfasts to lunches to dinners, and even snacks, desserts, appetizers and vegan staples, as well as handy menu plans and tips to amp up the recipes and your vegan life, Sam Turnbull and Fuss-Free Vegan are your ultimate guides in the new vegan kitchen.

About the Author

Sam Turnbull

Growing up in a family of chefs, foodies, butchers, and hunters, (yep, it's true) Sam never thought she would go vegan. But when she made the switch overnight (yay!) , she was determined to prove that it wasn't all kale and quinoa. With limitation came inspiration. Sam began posting recipes online, and her blog It Doesn't Taste Like Chicken was born.

Sam's quick, easy, comforting, satisfying, and totally drool-worthy recipes struck a chord with vegans, vegetarians, veg-curious, and even carnivores everywhere. Her lentil taco recipe won the #LoveLentil contest in which she filmed a cooking show with Food Networks celebrity Chef Michael Smith. She landed a book deal with Appetite by Random House and wrote her first cookbook called Fuss-Free Vegan. Sam put her heart and soul into Fuss-Free Vegan in which she did all of the recipe writing, photography, and even designed her own font, creating the cookbook she wished she had when she went vegan!

Sam works from her kitchen counter in Toronto, Canada with her pooch Chickpea by her side, (who is always keen to help taste test her recipes) .
