Atlas, one of the most respected names in vegetarian and vegan cooking, brilliantly fills the biggest gap in the vegan repertoire by addressing everything from Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Christmas to celebratory brunches, lunches, dinners, potlucks, and buffets. Such mouthwatering dishes as Coconut Butternut Squash Soup, Green Chili Corn Bread, Hearty Vegetable Pot Pie, delicate Ravioli with Sweet Potatoes and Sage, and Cashew Chocolate Mousse Pie will convince even the most skeptical eater that vegan cooking is well worth celebrating.
“Vegans, rejoice!. . . . Thanks to Atlas, vegan versions of traditional holiday foods can be incorporated for everyone to enjoy.” –Epicurious.com “Happily, those of us who like to eat and party well need not suffer. . . . Atlas shows Thanksgiving can be bountiful indeed and not a turkey harmed. Beloved winter holiday hits go meatless, including vegan holiday cookies spiced with cinnamon and ginger, mock chopped liver (cashew, onion and mushroom pate) and ‘vegg’ nog, thick and rich with almond milk and cashew butter, liberally spiked with rum. The spirit of the season remains but anything animal is excised.” –Huffington Post Recipes reprinted in the New York Times “Diner’s Journal” and Washington Post.

About the Author
One of the most respected names in vegetarian and vegan cooking, Nava Atlas has written nine previous cookbooks. She is considered an expert in meat-free holiday fare, which is the most popular area of her website, www.VegKitchen.com.
This is one of my favorite vegetarian cookbooks! No crazy ingredients and simple instructions, but most importantly the recipes are delicious. I’m Puerto Rican so I’m used to flavorful dishes, and these recipes do not disappoint. I just made Spiced Vegetable Peanut Soup, Ravioli with Sweet Potatoes and Sage, and Apple Cranberry Sauce for Thanksgiving, and everyone absolutely loved it, to include my meat-eating nephew.
I’ve made several recipes out of this book, and all have turned out well. Even though it says it’s for holidays, I think most of the recipes would work well in regular rotation. I like the breakdown by holiday (including Jewish ones), though, since it makes it easy to search for appropriate recipes at specific times of the year.
A must have for any vegan chef’s collection! I’ve made most of the recipes in this book and they are delicious, easy to make and the measurements are perfect! I’ve not altered the recipes which I usually have to do with most vegan or gluten free cookbooks.
