And a video all about the cookbook: Vegan Comfort Classics: 101 Recipes to Feed Your Face
Lauren’s debut cookbook is a fun and irreverent take on vegan comfort food that’s saucy, sweet, sassy, and most definitely deep-fried. In this bold collection of more than 100 recipes, the world of comfort food and vegan cooking collide as Lauren Toyota shares her favorite recipes and creative ways to make Philly cheesesteak, fried chicken, and mac ‘n’ cheese, all with simple vegan ingredients. Never one to hold back, Lauren piles plates high with cheese sauce, ranch, bacon, and barbecue sauce, all while sharing personal stories and tips in her engaging and hilarious voice. The result is indulgent, crave-worthy food – like Southern Fried Cauliflower, The Best Vegan Ramen, and Raspberry Funfetti Pop Tarts – made for sharing with friends at weeknight dinners, weekend brunches, and beyond.
