Cookbook of the Week #3: Veganomicon

17 Nov

When I say the name of the current Cookbook of the Week, I always sing it to the tune of the “Hallelujah” chorus of Handel’s Messiah: “Veganomicon, Veganomicon, Veganomicon…” You get the idea.

I’ve had this book for about a year, and I really don’t use it as much as I should. Part of the reason is that many of the recipes are more time-consuming than is realistic for my daily lifestyle. However, pretty much everything I’ve made from the book has been a success (with the exception of the floptastic pancakes that one time), so I decided to spotlight it this week. You undoubtedly noticed – because I know you all pore over my words and don’t miss a syllable – that last night’s scalloped potatoes were based on a Veganomicon recipe. I have also thoroughly enjoyed the Mexican Millet, Black Beans with Chipotle Adobo Sauce, the Chickpea Cutlets, and the Pasta e Fagioli.

I wouldn’t recommend Veganomicon for a brand-new cook. Many of the recipes require a large time and effort investment. However, if you know your way around the kitchen and want to expand your vegan-cooking horizons, you must pick up a copy.

And because I’m just all full of warm fuzzies toward Vegan MoFo this month, I’m giving away a copy of Veganomicon! That’s right, friends. This wonderful cookbook could be all yours.

Here’s how you can enter:

1. “Like” the Vegging out in T-Town Facebook page and leave me a comment here letting me know you did. That’ll give you one chance to win.
2. Tweet about the giveaway with a link to this post and leave me a comment with a link to your post. That’ll give you one chance to win.
3. Post about the giveaway on your blog with a link to this post and leave me a comment with a link to what you wrote. Doing so will give you two chances.
4. Leave a comment on this post either telling me what you most want to make from Veganomicon or what you most want to make from my recipes page. This will give you one chance to win.

That means each entrant can have up to five chances to win! Woo hoo! I like them odds. (Yes, “them.” I’m an Okie, remember?) I will use a random number generator to pick the winner. If you want to win, make sure to enter by Sunday, November 28 at 11:59 p.m. Central time. Good luck!

    If I won this book, I would actually give it to one of my family members as a gift…there are a couple of people in my family that I know would use it and I would love for them to have it! That said, I have yet to make the S’mlove pie…and I think I will be making that soon!
