Tester Peek, Viva Vegan Seitan and Chorizo, and a Giveaway for Viva Vegan!


Terry Hope Romero has been writing recipes for her next cookbook! I received word just yesterday that I could count myself amongst the lucky testers. Of course I couldn't wait to get started, so what you see above is a bowl of delicious Asian miso-y soup. If this recipe is any hint of what's to come, testing is going to be amazing . . . and so is the cookbook.

So it's fitting that today's giveaway is for the wonderful cookbook Viva Vegan! This Latino food cookbook is by Terry Hope Romero, who I hope you know is also co-author of the just-released Vegan Pie in the Sky amongst others. If you don't have this amazing cookbook, you need it, because it's wonderful. (Just ask Kitteh, who regularly blogs about her Viva Vegan meals.) The giveaway is brought to you by the lovely people over at Da Capo Lifelong, who have furnished a number of titles for giveaways on this blog. (Thank you, Lindsey, and everybody else!) Please consider having a look at their website, and/or following them on Twitter and Facebook, because they are seriously generous. They also publish beautiful and useful vegan books, like Isa and Terry's dessert trio, and many more.


I especially love the seitan recipes in Viva Vegan. Here is a batch of steamed white seitan, a double batch of steamed red seitan, and a batch of chorizo sausages all ready for the freezer. To enter this giveaway, leave a comment below. Tell me about your favorite Latin food, something you'd like to veganize, or anything at all. This giveaway is open to residents of the US and Canada, but others this month will be open to everybody everywhere. The winner will be chosen by random number generator and posted tomorrow below tomorrow's giveaway. If you win a giveaway on this blog at some point this month, please be kind and don't enter further giveaways--I'd love as many people to win something as possible!

  6. I bought this as an ebook, but a whole bunch of the measurements were replaced with question marks. Very frustrating! I'd love to have a reliable print copy. And I'd especially like some vegan taquitos.

  7. Oh boy! I've been itching to have this book!

    One of my favorite pre-vegan recipes was picante de pollo, which I became addicted to as a Peace Corps volunteer in Bolivia. It was the sauce that made it, though, not the chicken, so I do plan on veganizing it one of these days!

  8. My favorite Latin food is my mother's Rice and Beans, which she now kindly prepares in a solely vegan way.

  22. I love sopes with beans, queso fresco, avocado and salsa verde. I guess I would just have to find a replacement for the cheese to make it vegan. Anyone have any suggestions?
