It started as a blog. Annie and Dan Shannon wanted to veganize the recipes in The Betty Crocker Cookbook. It is that adventure in blogging that led to Betty Goes Vegan: 500 Classic Recipes for the Modern Family. Many of the Shannons’ comfort foods are inspired by Betty Crocker, but not all. Being vegan becomes accessible in this tip-filled cookbook. Betty Goes Vegan is great for new or busy vegans, as it relies heavily on vegan processed foods (like mock meats and soy cheeses). With delish recipes like vegan curry, buffalo tofu steaks, mini pot roast pies, apple fritters, and Mexican hot chocolate cupcakes, Betty Goes Vegan has something for everyone.
