'Carnivore-approved' recipe book The Edgy Veg
turns traditional vegan cuisine upside down with delicious twists on classic comfort foods & fast food favs
Moving away from the ubiquitous spiralized zucchini noodles of Instagram and away fromboring salads and smoothies, The Edgy Veg features 138 recipes that satisfy the need for comfort food, fast food favourites, food-nerd obsessions and insatiable childhood and adult cravings.
Every recipe will be enjoyed by vegans, vegetarians and omnivores alike — and they are all approved by Candice’s husband James, former meat and cheese‑loving guy. The Edgy Veg is a fabulously fun food movement seeking to revolutionize and redefine vegan food as we know it.
“This is the book that every vegan, non-vegan, wannabe vegan, thinking-about-going-vegan and carnivore-that-loves-animals needs in their life. The main goal writing this book,was to tackle drool-worthy dishes that the world can't believe are meat and dairy-free. I cannot wait for our Veg Squad to fool their friends and families with recipes like mac and cheese, burgers, salads-that-don't-suck, and ice cream,” says Hutchings. “I am so excited to be part of the landscape that brings plant-based cooking to the mainstream and proves that a vegan diet can include the comfort foods we all grew up eating.”
The book features all new recipes (not seen on the blog or on their YouTube channel) along with a selection of hand-picked fan favourites. Included are brunch staples such as the incredibly indulgent Veggs Benedict, cocktails including Ginger Kombucha Mimosa, sweet treats like Candice’s Thank You Very Matcha Ice Cream, and more mains than you can count.
Breaking down the essentials on how to make meat and dairy replacements, The Edgy Veg also offers extensive advice on how to stock a vegan kitchen and pantry, which both experienced chefs and first-time vegan cooks will love.
It’s time to take vegan cooking to the next level. It’s time for more dad jokes than you can count. It’s time for The Edgy Veg.
