Mastering the Art of Vegan Cooking

Authors: Annie Shannon & Dan Shannon · Subject: Cookbooks


Annie and Dan Shannon, the authors of Betty Goes Vegan, are back. In their new book, they show readers how to cook creatively and thriftily with recipes, sidebars, and tips on stocking a pantry and using ingredients creatively.

Most recipes result in leftover ingredients and servings that can be reused in multiple ways, reducing waste in your kitchen while keeping your meals fresh and flavorful. Inspired by the recipes and cost-saving techniques used during the Depression and World War II and paying a vegan homage to Julia Child, The Shannons have figured out how to get the most out of what you’ve already invested so that you can spend less and get more. With recipes like Korean Kimchi BBQ Burgers, Vegan Yankee Pot Roast, Not-cho Everyday Chili Dogs, and Savannah Pecan Pies, Mastering the Art of Vegan Cooking offers a way to make eating vegan both affordable and delicious.

“Waste not, want not. That’s what my me-maw always said, and in these tough economic times, that phrase couldn’t ring truer. Mastering the Art of Vegan Cooking will help me honor me-maw’s sage advice since each recipe features a cost-per-serving and many recipes offer ideas for using leftover ingredients.” ― Bianca Phillips, author of Cookin’ Crunk: Eatin’ Veganin the Dirty South
