Street Vegan by Adam Sobel
From the publisher:
What's the secret behind the Snail's takeover of New York City streets? In all kinds of weather, vegetarians, vegans, and omnivores alike queue up for addictive vegan cuisine from truck owner Adam Sobel. Now Adam brings his food straight to your kitchen, along with stories of the challenges of working on a food truck while still finding ways to infuse food with imagination, love, and a pinch of perspective. Street Vegan brings the energy and passion of the Cinnamon Snail's creative cooking from truck to table.
This delicious book is filled with a variety of vegan foods to try. There are breakfast items, beverages to try, soups & sandwiches, vegetables and side dishes, and of course desserts! This book is a good place to come if you want to try cooking more than just one type of vegan food.
There were some really nice features about this cookbook. One was that in the beginning Adam Sobel gives a list of what the basics you will need to make the recipes in this book. There are also descriptions by it to help you have a better idea if you have never heard of them before. I also liked how there were pictures for almost every other recipe in this book. For me, that really makes a cookbook because I want to envision what I will be making, especially if I am unfamiliar with a recipe.
The only down-side to the book is that a lot the recipes called for alcohol in them. I felt like there were too many and if the person buying this book didn't drink them they would have to either go and buy those drink specifically for the recipes or not be able to cook those and that would take a lot away from the cookbook.
I received this book free from the publishers in exchange for my honest review.
