Viva La Vegan!

I've just released an e-book with a collection of 48 recipes suitable for the silly season - that starts this week in America with Thanksgiving.

The e-book is called Viva la Vegan’s Cruelty Free Vegan Christmas Recipes:


This collection started with one of my most popular blogs from December 2011 Cruelty Free Vegan Christmas Recipes and will one day be a print book.

This is a 70-page e-book with delicious alternatives for meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free eating and also raw, wheat- and gluten-free options. There is information on the vegan lifestyle and how to survive the silly season. 48 recipes and some how-to videos are included, with over 50 full-colour photographs and much more! There's 16 NEW recipes that are included to make up...

Here's a photo Noah took of me in October 2011 at the Vegan Easy Challenge launch in Melbourne.

tofu_turkeyLeigh-Chantelle with Patty Mark's Tofu Turkey

Patty (from Animal Liberation Victoria) makes this each year and has been following a recipe for years. Depending on who you ask, it’s either from Sarah Kramer’s book Vegan a Go-Go! OR Karen Davis' (from United Poultry Concerns) book Instead of Chicken, Instead of Turkey.
Here's the Recipe and How-to video. Patty's tip is to marinate the tofu before packing it into the colander.
