Vegan Comfort Foods Cookbook Giveaway!!

A couple nights ago, I posted a review of Veronica Grace's new cookbook, Vegan Comfort Foods from Around the World. It's a collection of 60 low-fat recipes for classic comfort food dishes. We're talking vegan mac & cheese with broccoli, ranch dip, spaghetti with French lentil sauce, sloppy joes, baked ziti, you name it. If it's comforting, there's likely a recipe for it in Veronica's new book.


Well, I was supposed to host a giveaway of her book in that post. But I blog late at night, and I forget important things all the time. So I forgot to post about the giveaway! Here it is.

You can read the full review here. And then you should leave a comment on this post letting me know about your favorite vegan comfort food. What one meal just warms the heck out of your little heart with every bite?

Be sure and leave your email address in the comment unless you know I can find you through a blog or something. I just need a way to contact you. I'll randomly select a winner on Tuesday night.

(P.S. I've noticed that a few people have left comments on the review post linked above to try to win rather than this one. Sorry for the confusion! But please comments on THIS POST! To be fair, I'll include those folks who commented on the other as well. But it'll be easier on me if you comment here instead of there).

Nachos. No matter what they are always delicious. Plus, the messier the better!

Can I pick a vegan food I haven't had yet? The other day I realized I'd love to recreate vegan port wine cheese and first I thought I'd add port wine to hummus because I figured I was the only person missing this but mr google found me two recipes which NEED to be made! One is but based the other tofu... So I'm picking those as my favorite vegan comfort food

My favourite comfort food is adapted from the Chick Magnet Chikn Casserole from the Peta College Cookbook (Layers of tomato pasta sauce, creamy cheesey sauce, fake bacon rasher crisps & vegan cheese)

My favorite comfort food is pot pie. I usually make mine with a Gardein product or seitan and lots of veggies in a creamy (vegan) white sauce. Pour into a round casserole and top with a pie crust or puff pastry. Hmmmmm making me hungry.

I would have to say vegan mac and cheese!

Oh man...I just made an awesome variation of pad Thai...using spaghetti squash! It was full of vegetables, sweet and tangy sauce and spongy tofu. Of course, it had a plop of chewy rice on the side. Total veggie comfort.

Vegan Mac and Cheese or really any pasta is my favorite comfort food for sure. My favorite combination is mac and cheese with broccoli or with avocado and bacon bits.

MonsterAteMy said...

Mac and cheese, either with mashed sweet potato or a cashew-based sauce. Yum!

veganvixen said...

When I think of comfort food, I think of burgers, veggie burgers to be precise. Any kind, just as long as it's on great bread with lots of Veganaise!

Kim in NashVegas said...

Spaghetti Squash marinara! or Humus...

Beyond Kawaii said...

My comfort food tends to be sunflowers. It just wells up fond childhood memories in me. ncwhitehead AT gmail DOT com

I love funeral potatoes! I know everyone calls them something different. But I make a vegan version of the classic favorite. Potatoes, sour cream, cream cheese, cheese, butter, onions, corn flakes, all baked together! Super unhealthy, but delicious and comforting!

Call me boring but I can never get enough vegan mac 'n' cheese. I have made dozens of different variations and it never gets old!

When I describe my favorite comfort food, people often say "wow, you really are a Northern Californian, aren't you?": beans & greens. Black beans with garlic and smoked paprika, topped with braised kale made with a ludicrous quantity of garlic and lots of lemon juice.

Matthew J.S. said...

Hey Bianca! My favorite vegan comfort food at this moment is either my red-hot, protein-packed chili, or a homemade vegan poutine, with little guilt! The latter is a project in the kitchen, so I only make it from time to time (when friends are in the kitchen with me, heh).

Honestly, though, I aspire to make a mouth-watering vegan gumbo (and jambalaya, for that matter) quite soon. Spicy ftw!

Cabby said...

My pizza cravings can get intense! Other options are vegan reuben (mmmm) and of course buffalo cauliflower!

Amelia Tobias said...

My favorite vegan comfort food is definitely BBQ tofu!

Xakk G said...

Plain old mashed potatoes! Not exciting, but classic and does indeed warm the heck out of my little heart! :)

Looks like a fun book! My favorite comfort food: sandwiches. Like a really good sandwich. With vegan mayo or ranch. And chips and a pickle on the side.

Sara said...

Always vegan mac and cheese. Always.

Yvonne van de Water said...

My idea of comfort food: some sort of quiche (anything in a crust) and french fries - or for that matter, most things fried (eggplant, onions, etc.).

Lesley said...

Mac and Cheeze! Best thing ever!

Chelsea S. said...

I love a good, hearty soup, especially when accompanied by a vegan pot pie!

Anna said...

Megaera said...

Was going to say Cheezy mashed potatoes (with daiya) but I'm reading through all the comments thinking I frickin' LOVE (insert comfort food idea here). I'm going to stick with my original answer though because it's easy to make and really filling and when I'm feeling yucky, it just makes me feel better!

Lynsi said...

Vegan chili! Either black and refried bean chili cooked with barbecue sauce and salsa or Post Punk Kitchen's Thai red curry and lentil chili.

leo85 said...

It's gotta be spicy five bean chili, "cheesy" jalapeno cornbread with an ice cold beer! Seriously, who doesn't love chili?

KathyD said...

Biscuits are one of my favorite comfort foods.

Pizza, or spaghetti and bean balls I'm still looking for the perfect pizza recipe though ;)

Elise said...

Tacos! I now use Smart Ground, Tofutti Better Than Sour Cream, and Daiya Cheddar style. Everything else is the same: chopped tomatoes, lettuce, onions sauteed and mixed into the Smart Ground.

I also love fajitas!

Cindy H said...

Mmmmm, I'd have to say split pea soup, there is nothing more comforting on a cold day!
Thanks so much for the chance to win.

Crissy said...

Vegan Grilled cheese and tomato soup!

Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl said...

My favorite vegan comfort food is either vegan lasagna or mac and cheese!

I love a spinach loaf made of spinach, tomatoes, onion, italian seasons and a tad of bread or crushed crackers. It is like meatloaf but way better!

I love a good hearty soup but I really want to make some recipes like Mac and Cheese or a good gooey casserole, vegan of course.

Vegan mac and cheese is my all-time favorite comfort food.

Ben said...

It seems to be a favorite on here so far, but I will join in with the sentiment: my favorite vegan comfort food is mac and cheese. Oh the wonders of nutritional yeast....

The Peace Patch said...

Right now I'm a sucker for cream of mushroom pasta bake with crushed chips on top. Give me a giant spoon and I'll be nice and quiet, I promise. ;)

Sheridan and Drew said...

Vegan Mac and Cheeze all the way! Best comfort food everrrrr!!!

Monica Mansfield said...

Maple Backed Lentils with Sweet Potatoes. I usually add some kale too. That's comfort food at it's finest!
