Viva La Vegan!

I'm working on a new vegan recipe book and I need a Title. If you have any ideas please email me or comment on FaceBook, Google+ or Twitter. If your suggestion is chosen you will receive a copy of the new book due out at the end of 2013.

Thanks to Jim Campbell who came up with the title, There’s a Vegan in the Kitchen: Viva la Vegan’s Easy and Tasty Plant-Based Recipes. Keep updated with the new book,  HERE.

VOTE for the best title HERE (until the end of September)

The recipes are a collection of the Viva la Vegan! Recipe Calendars released in 2006, 2007 and 2008 - then later recycled recipe cards. I would like a better title for the book than what I was originally going to go with: Recipe Cards Collection.

Over 3 days mid-April, my good friend and go-to photographer, Carol from Carol Slater Photography and I did a photo shoot for the 36 recipes that will be in the upcoming book. I also spent another 3 other days with preparation. 

I'd like to share the wonderful work that Carol has done by the photos below showing my original photos (on top) and Carol's new and improved ones below. You can also click on the name of each dish or the photo to download the Recipes - make sure you sign in!

Here's the ones from the first recipe calendar, released in 2006

Chick-pea and vegetable salad:


Curry puffs:


Fried rice:


Polenta Cakes with stir-fried vegetables:


Couscous and roasted vegetable salad:


Tempeh satay with Asian greens:



Chinese greens with eggplant:


Pumpkin and asparagus tofu:


Tofu and rice stir fry:


Vegetable lasagne:

The recipe book will be available at the end of 2013 and will also feature illustrations by the wonderful Sarah Kiser.

See my previous blog about Sarah's Art.

See my previous blog about an all-vegan, eco wedding Carol also took photos for.
