u/DJSimmer305 · 32 pointsr/Badfaketexts

Yes I do! Full disclosure, I got this recipe out of a vegan cookbook called Thug Kitchen.
This recipe makes a lot of cauliflower btw, probably enough for like 4-6 people, so just cut it in half if you don’t think you need that much.
2 medium heads of cauliflower
1/2 cup flour (I used all-purpose, but it doesn’t really matter what kind you use)
1/2 cup water
1/2 to 2/3 cup sriracha (depending on how much you can handle the heat)
2 teaspoons oil (I used olive, but if you’re cheap you can use pretty much any oil and it will work)
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce

  1. Preheat your oven to 450F and lightly grease a rimmed baking sheet. Chop up your cauliflower into bite sized florets (or just buy it pre-chopped if you’re lazy).
  2. Whisk together the flour and water to make a smooth batter. Too chunky? Add more water. Too runny? Add more flour.
  3. Put the cauliflower into a big bowl, toss them in the batter, and make sure they are all a little coated. There should be enough batter to get a nice coating on them. They shouldn’t be soaked and dripping, but they should all be coated.
  4. Spread them out evenly on the baking sheet in one layer and put them into the oven for 15 minutes. Move them around and flip them halfway through to make sure all the sides get a chance to cook.
  5. While they are baking, make the hot sauce. Combine the oil, sriracha, vinegar, and soy sauce in a small saucepan and cook on low heat until it’s warm, but not bubbling. You’re just trying to get those flavors to combine nicely, but if it starts bubbling, you might spend some time later scraping burnt hot sauce out of your pan and it will probably mess up your sauce too. Once it’s warm and combined, remove it from the heat until your cauliflower is ready.
  6. Once the cauliflower is done cooking, take it out of the oven and put them into a big bowl. You can just use the same bowl you used to toss them in the batter before, but obviously wipe it clean before you do. Toss the cauliflower with the hot sauce mixture from the stove and get those delicious little guys nice and coated.
  7. Put them back on the baking sheet, leaving some extra sauce in the bowl (don’t worry, we’re coming back to it) and bake for another 3 minutes.
  8. Serve these guys warm (or room temp, I’m just a random internet dude. I can’t tell you what to do) and top with that leftover sauce, or leave it on the side in a small bowl for dipping.

Veganomicon and Thug Kitchen have given me about 80% of my meals since I got them. They are both great.

u/EpicWarriorPaco · 16 pointsr/vegan

I highly recommend the Thug Kitchen cookbook! If you like to watch recipe videos, I recommend [Cheap Lazy Vegan]
(, Mommy Tang, Caitlin Shoemaker, A Chill Vegan, and The Happy Pear.

u/MsAuroraRose · 15 pointsr/vegetarian

Quick recommendations for cookbooks/websites (I'm fully plant-based so these don't include dairy but I still recommend because the recipes are so good):

  • Thug Kitchen(any of the three)
  • Minimalist Baker
  • Happy Cow (if you have to eat out, this website is a lifesaver)


    Minimalist Baker is my favorite so far as all of her recipes have been amazing.
u/RyanThePhotog · 13 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Got mine on amazon.

Hope you are not offended by foul language!

u/Kasai_Ryane · 13 pointsr/vegan

If that's what you think of vegan recipe books then you haven't been looking

My omnivore friends, who do NOT sugar coat their opinions, unanimously love everything I've made from those cookbooks. It ain't just kind words. Two of them have approached me and asked me to teach them how to cook like that all the time

u/[deleted] · 9 pointsr/vegan
u/yeahletstrythisagain · 9 pointsr/vegan
u/TheOnlyCaveat · 8 pointsr/running

I've been vegan for two years, running for two and a half. Things I love:

Curries. Yellow, red, green, all of them. Very versatile, put whatever veggies float your boat. My favorites are yellow potatoes, carrots, peas, bell peppers, onions. Tofu is a MUST for me in curries. Press the excess liquid out (honestly, if your wife is serious about plant-based eating, an actual tofu press is WAAAAY better than using towels and heavy pans) and cube it up. No need to cook it before you throw it into your curry. Also, sometimes I stir in some chunky peanut butter right before I eat it. Serve with white rice, brown rice, quinoa, whatevs. Or just by itself.

Tofu scrambles. These were absolutely essential for me during marathon training last summer. Very quick, easy as hell to make, versatile, and packed with protein, calcium, and iron. Also, one of the few tofu recipes where you really don't have to press the tofu. Getting the excess liquid out is a good idea, but no need to let it press for more than five minutes while you prep your veggies. A good tofu scramble may take a few tries to get the hang of, so I recommend starting with a recipe (like this, for example) but once you've got the hang of it, mix up your veggies and spices to find your favorite combo. I also highly recommend finding some black salt to give your egg-inspired dishes that sulphur-y flavor. ONLY A LITTLE BIT IS NEEDED TO GET THE FLAVOR. Too much, and you and your wife will have the WORST GAS OF YOUR LIVES.

Speaking of eggy stuff, Chickpea salad sandwiches are BOMB. Depending on what spices you use, you can make this more eggy or more chicken-y, or more tuna-y, depending on your mood. My favorite recipe so far has been Thug Kitchen's smoked almond and chickpea salad sandwiches (here) but you can make it way simpler by not bothering with all the almond stuff and just going super basic. This is a tuna-inspired version I love.

I could really go on and on about vegan food, but perhaps the best way to get you and your wife in the right direction is to recommend a few books for you. I have....god, probably like 20 vegan cook books. My top three favorites are:

America's Test Kitchen: Vegan for Everybody - Great pictures, great recipes, and a lot of information on "why this works/why this doesn't work" in vegan cooking. I have been vegan for two years and just recently got this book and it has taught me a lot that I wish I had known all along.

Thug Kitchen: Eat Like You Give a Fuck - The first vegan cook book I ever got, a gift from my husband about a week after I went vegan, and still to this day one of my very favorites. So much basic info (like wtf is nooch), seriously tasty food, and hilariously written (NSFW language). I can't make up my mind whether I recommend this one or the ATK book more, but I'm leaning towards this one.

Minimalist Baker's Everyday Cooking - someone has already mentioned her blog, which I absolutely recommend as well, but there is SO MUCH on that blog, it can be hard to just find something to make. Dana's cook book takes care of that problem by having 101 of her very best recipes in a really beautiful and well-thought out book. Her recipes are always fun and inspired, and she has some of the tastiest vegan desserts I've ever had the pleasure of making.

Last thought: as far as "vegan recipes for runners" goes, one of the beautiful things about eating a whole foods, plant-based diet is that it's all really good food for runners. As long as you stay mostly away from processed stuff (fake meats made of soy protein isolate, vegan cheeses made of practically nothing but oil), then a vegan diet is going to be beneficial to your wife as a runner. There is a place in your kitchen for some Tofurky deli slices and vegan mayo (my favorite is Hampton Creek's Just Mayo) but keep it mostly whole foods and you really can't go wrong.

I hope this helps.

u/DerSoldierSpike · 7 pointsr/recipes

If vegetarian is an option and you're ok with some offensive language, the Thug Kitchen cookbook might be a way to go.

u/PsychoticPangolin · 7 pointsr/Cooking
u/Dunkaduck · 7 pointsr/gifs

It's actually really easy. Beans + rice or beans + corn and you have a complete protein. I eat tacos, burritos, Thai, Indian (vegan curry), black bean burgers, and stir fry all the time. I thought all vegans were hungry skellies too before I gave it a shot, and it turns out it's really cheap and easy. It is only ever difficult to eat vegan at restaurants because everything seems to have milk or cheese, but I am doing the best I can and don't sweat the small stuff. My BF eats meat but these days at home he doesn't bother because he loves my cooking.

Edit: If anybody is interested in the nutrition of a plant-based diet or would like to try some delicious recipes, I would highly recommend

  1. Vegan for Life which is written by two registered dietitians. This book discusses how to feed yourself properly and what vitamins you need (looking at you B12) to make a vegan lifestyle sustainable.

  2. Thug kitchen Is a funny, no-nonsense book which showcases a lot of delicious recipes which I use every week

  3. Some documentaries that I really enjoy sharing which are available on Netflix are:

  • cowspiracy - the environmental impact of consuming meat and meat products

  • Forks Over Knives - discusses nutrition and the effects of consuming animal products and oil and the links between these products and cancer. Big focus on the China Study

  • Food Matters - another nutrition one.

    I want to point out that the last two really push the message that 'FOOD CURES ALL' and that is a bit of an extreme message imo. A good diet certainly leads to good health, but modern medicine exists for a reason.

My fiance (omnivore) just bought me (vegan) the cookbook "Thug Kitchen: Eat Like You Give a Fuck" and it has been incredible for meal suggestions we both enjoy! It also doesn't require any totally weird ingredients so far as I've encountered. Feel free to check it out!

u/h2omanjace · 6 pointsr/likeus

Check out some recipe books and see if you can make any meals you like and then ease yourself into it. That's how I started. I started with this one and it has a lot of good recipes.

Or this one is aimed at doing meals so that you won't miss meat

Check them out at your library and just pick a few to test. I've also found a few fake meat products that I never thought I would have liked. Quorn makes some good meatless alternatives like chikn nuggets. There's also Beyond Burger which is shockingly meaty.

u/ultibman5000 · 5 pointsr/vegan

Thug Kitchen.

But I Could Never Go Vegan!

Also, look up some high-rated vegan restaurants or restaurants with vegan options on this site.

There are also many vegan cooking channels on YouTube, check out some of those.

u/mdempsky · 5 pointsr/vegan

If you're into fitness, you might also check out /r/veganfitness. They can help you with concerns about higher protein needs.

If you're just looking for a high-level summary of a balanced vegan diet, you can check out

If you want something more scientific, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics' "Vegetarian Diets" position paper has a section talking about nutrients of concern specific to vegetarians, which might help address some of your concerns.

Do you have any vegan cookbooks? I think one of the things that made going vegan very accessible to me was just buying a vegan cookbook. I got "Thug Kitchen" based on my sister's recommendation, and have really enjoyed most everything I've made from it.

u/swindy92 · 5 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I got you

Double the seasoning and this is vegan food that's actually worth eating.

u/RockyColtTum · 5 pointsr/CFBOffTopic

Thug Kitchen so you can learn to not be a bitch-ass cook.

(But really it's a good cookbook.)

u/TheVeganFoundYou · 4 pointsr/vegan

Here are a couple of very affordable must-have vegan cookbooks: The Homemade Vegan Pantry: The Art of Making Your Own Staples by Miyoko Schinner and Thug Kitchen- Eat Like You Give a F*ck. Pick a recipe or two and mark the page/s with a card that says you'd like to hang out and make said recipe together. If you really want to go the extra mile, buy the ingredients for the recipe and include them with the cookbook.

This Santoku knife is the perfect veggie knife... slices tomatoes paper thin.

Going all out: put the cookbook and recipe ingredients in the tote bag instead of using a box/wrapping paper.

u/iridescentxmoon · 4 pointsr/vegetarian

Ever since my boyfriend and I got this cookbook , grocery shopping got way easier, we just pick a few recipes for the week and go get the ingredients to make them. Before we were constantly struggling to figure out what to make for dinner and switching it up. Definitely recommend it for starting out as vegetarian/vegan

u/TRextacy · 4 pointsr/vegan

I got these two books (Frugal Vegan and Thug Kitchen)as a gift and they have really helped me get better. I was a decent cook beforehand but these have given me tips on making tofu taste better, good sauces to make, etc. I like the combo of these two books because Frugal Vegan is a lot simpler, generally not too many ingredients, and usually not some weird thing you've never heard of while Thug Kitchen can get a bit more elaborate which can also be fun.

u/ohnoletsgo · 4 pointsr/videos

Are you fucking new to the internet?

u/PanicRev · 3 pointsr/recipes

Wife and I picked up the Thug Kitchen cookbook. It's hilarious to read and has some great recipes in there too.

I was raised where meat was pretty much the main entree for every meal, so things that substitute meat seem to work well for me. Some of my favorites are black bean or chick pea burgers, and baked BBQ cauliflower (good to use in tacos, salads, etc.). We also cook up these tasty tostadas as well. (Technically that's a meat-less meal, and you'd have to swap out the sour cream and cheese to go fully vegan).

Also, if you're like me, you'll leave for work and frequently leave your lunch on the counter at home. In those situations, I've found Taco Bell to be a pretty good option. Nearly any recipe tastes just as good asking them to swap the beef for beans.

Hope this helps!

u/bethyweasley · 3 pointsr/vegan

Since we are all a little lazy... Here are links to all of the books in my stack:
Betty Goes Vegan (my mom got this one for my boyfriend - so not strictly mine - in hopes that he would cook for me. I am pressing the tofu right now at his request, so far so good)

Vegan Eats World

Eat Drink & Be Vegan

The 30 Minute Vegan

Thug Kitchen

I think it's fun! How about just a fun little $#!+ stylized to look like "shit"? And/or just put a little splat graphic over the word as a little wink while also being a little more friendly.

I'm thinking like Thug Kitchen, if you want a visual. Their cookbook is hilarious but tons of profanity.

u/Nesteabottle · 3 pointsr/cookingforbeginners
u/bucco_brewski · 3 pointsr/vegan

If you like to cook, and are concerned with the environmental and ethical problems of the meat industry, I'd recommend picking up a copy of one of the Thug Kitchen books. Really funny to read, pretty simple recipes, and they are really good.

Only 9 bucks for a used copy!

u/sauteslut · 3 pointsr/Cooking

Silver Spoon is the best for basics/reference. I've got a copy in both English and the original Italian. It's the modern bible while larousse gastronomique is outdated imo.

Cooking by Hand was a big inspiration early in my career

Recently I like cookbooks that are entertaining beyond just pretty pictures of food.

The Dirt Candy cookbook. The graphic novel style is awesome and the recipes are good.

Also, A Super Upsetting Book about Sandwiches

And of course Thug Kitchen

u/1957BA · 3 pointsr/loseit

My best resources have been cookbooks, honestly! Every Sunday I pick something that appeals to me and try it. I've learned to appreciate and prepare different veggies in all different ways. And that has opened me up to a lot of veggies I never ate before: beets, cabbage, ALL of the beans. Before I would always buy new veggies to try with good intentions, but just never knew what to do with them.

I know there's some debate over their style, but I really like the Thug Kitchen books. The recipes are pretty easy and creative. I also LOVE Veganomicon specifically because it has a lot of basics and is a good starting point. I recommend checking it out!

Online, I like They have a LOT of recipes.

u/thergoat · 3 pointsr/cookingforbeginners

My recommendations:


  1. Tasty videos! They’re short, so you can binge a bunch, but they’re also straightforward and usually on the simpler side.

  2. “Food Wishes” on YouTube. I’ve been watching them for over a decade - lighthearted, fun learning that takes you step by step through TONS of dishes. I cook almost daily, and I can credit this guy for most of my inspiration.

  3. Binging with Babish & Basics with Babish. Similar to good wishes, but a little more laid back (which is an accomplishment) and a bit higher production quality IMO.

  4. Bon Apetit! Also YouTube. So many fun personalities, everyone has different specialties, it’s like learning from experts that feel like your friends. Carla & Molly have the best recipes and explanations IMO, but they’re all wonderful.


    These are more advanced, but Serious Eats (google it) never lets you down when it comes to recipes, but they’re definitely more involved (hours to days).

    One of the serious eats writers, J. Kenji Lopez-Alt is a PhD Biologist (I think biology...) who wrote The Food Lab. This man is the god of cooking. 100% scientifically and experimentally tested, this book will teach you everything you ever need to know about cooking and then some. HIGHLY recommend getting a copy. The Food Lab: Better Home Cooking Through Science

    Finally, if you don’t want to drop $20 (it’s dropped by ~60% since I bought it! Definitely get a copy!!!) on that, but want to be healthy and learn easy, flavor packed recipes, pick up a copy of The Thug Kitchen. It’s vegan, but the skills are useful anywhere and I’ve yet to find anyone - carnivores included - that’s disliked a single recipe. I got a copy for myself, my girlfriend, a good friend of mine, and my brother.

Not necessarily TTC specific.. but you should get the Thug Kitchen cookbook. Its perfect.

u/ParamoreFanClub · 3 pointsr/vegan

I'm allergic to soy, nuts and uncooked fruits and veggies and I manage to be vegan. Mexican dishes are my go to most the time. Stir fries are easy just throw in rice and some veggies with your preffered stir fry sauce.

I suggest picking up thug kitchen it is full of fairly easy recipes. Thug kitchen also teaches you how to make your own recipes and talks about the staples of vegan cooking.

I mostly eat oatmeal for breakfast but if I have a day I'll make French toast, all you do is sub egg with flax seed, nutritional yeast and your favorite alternative milk.

Up vote for calvin

u/cobhgirl · 2 pointsr/vegetarian

I'd recommend Thug Kitchen. They've a number of books out, personally, I think this one is the best.

It's not Mexican as such, but more what I think might be Californian Tex Mex (if that makes sense), but their recipes are easy, unbelievably tasty, and on top of that hilarious to read.

Although if you're offended by bad language you might want to forget all I said there.

u/IncreasingEntropy · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

u/IndestructibleMushu · 2 pointsr/Cooking

Yotam Ottolenghi came out with a followup on his Plenty cookbook a few months ago, its called Plenty More. Used to see vegetables as only a side dish but he really changed my mind and enabled me to see that they can really be the star of the table. There are many interesting combinations. And as a man who is an omnivore himself, he often makes his dishes hearty enough that many of us wont even miss the meat.

Another book which you should look into is Thug Kitchen. If you haven't seen their blog, you should really check it out.

You should also look into Deborah Madison's books. This one is practically the Bible among vegetarians due to how comprehensive it is. Ironically, she also is an omnivore.

Theres also the Moosewood Cookbook which is great for weeknight meals as many of the recipes are simple and quick.

If you like Indian, I would really recommend 660 Curries which has some of the best Indian food I've ever tasted. I often compare food I get in Indian restaurants to what I've cooked from this book. Yes, its not completely vegetarian but the vast majority of Indian cuisine is vegetarian so it should still be a valuable resource for you.

Speaking of Indian food, Madhur Jaffrey (who is known for her Indian cookbooks) has a great cookbook dedicated to vegetarian cooking.

u/_dirtbox · 2 pointsr/vegan

I've not used any recipes yet, but the books by Thug Kitchen look awesome. Really good design and high quality photos. I think even omnis would appreciate the recipes (and humour) in there.

u/maliciousmonkey · 2 pointsr/vegetarian

It might help to ease into it. That can help you find recipes you like and foods that make you feel great -- it's a lot less pressure if you mess up a meal or don't like something when you're doing one or two vegetarian days per week. You can then do it more and more as you feel more comfortable and it will let you move out of your comfort zone a bit and try new things.

Don't shy away from meat substitutes (as sometimes you just want a "burger"!) but don't rely on them 100% either. Look for meals that highlight vegetables rather than try to hide the fact that there's no meat.

Also, not all vegetarian cookbooks are created equal. The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook is amazing though, and Thug Kitchen is a lot of fun.

Finally, don't beat yourself up if you slip. If you eat meat, forgive yourself and move on. Nobody is perfect but seeing a slip as a huge disaster just makes it harder to get back on track if you do.

Good luck!

This-- or go the other route: give her a copy of Thug Kitchen which presents healthy cooking in a humorous way. It is entertainment and acknowledgement of her interest in one.

u/pineapplesoup7 · 2 pointsr/veganrecipes

Thug Kitchen has some great, easy to make recipes that don't require many "exotic" ingredients. I also use The Homemade Vegan Pantry all the time. It's great for stocking your pantry and fridge rather than spending lots of cash on pre-made stuff. Plus, generally healthier. If you like Italian cooking, I enjoy Vedura (not vegan specific but the recipes are all veggie-centric and generally really simple).

u/gulfshadow · 2 pointsr/vegan

Well done :)

My 14 year old daughter mad all of us change from vegetarianism to being vegans and the whole family feel so much better for it.

I found this book invaluable and easily my families favourite.

u/kennethdc · 2 pointsr/PlantBasedDiet

The cursing might often look childish, but the dishes in the book are tasty and many of them will be probably loved by children as well. The recipes are also easy to make, in my opinion at least. And apart of a food processor not a lot of equipment is required. Which is a must-have in my opinion. Especially when you want to make some dips :)

u/TriggerHippie0202 · 2 pointsr/vegan

My staple dishes are curries, Indian and Thai most recently. I love some curry! You can use tofu, chickpeas, beans, lentils, etc. It's a great way to use up the rest of your veggies and clean the fridge. Curries are so flavorful and easy to make. There are even premade sauces if you don't want to make them from scratch.

u/EpicGifts · 2 pointsr/Gifts

oh really? Do you guy cook together often?

haha nothing wrong with some fried food every now and then! Fish and Chips is my favorite personally.

If you go a food route, check out this list of 28 gifts for foodies. I think #1, #6, and #18 could all be quite good options as general food-related gifts.

As far as cookbooks go, Thug Kitchen is really popular and great for fun healthy recipes

u/laureek · 1 pointr/xxfitness

I eat a combo of vegan/paleo. Why?
Paleo ppl know how to cook their meat in decently low calorie dishes
Vegan - man do they know how to make veggies! You don't really know how to cook veggies until you dig into these recipes.

  • 1 Oh She Glows - Food genius! Best I've ever owned!

  • 2 Against All Grain - Very solid, I love everything including the desserts

  • 3 Thug Kitchen - Amazing flavor combinations and loved most everything I made, some things were more effort than they were worth. I found myself going to the grocery store a lot when I was cooking through this book. Avoided the desserts because of the use of all purpose flour, sugar etc. The baking seems more traditional.

  • 4 Everyday Detox - Love the shakes and desserts, the cookie recipes are the best I've made, but the food falls flat. The combos don't knock my socks off.

  • 5 Paleo Comfort Food - Found a few good things in here but lots of misses. Resorted to writing X's and check marks on the pages of things that were successful and not so successful.

u/glap1922 · 1 pointr/Cooking

Not exactly what you are looking for, but here is a book

Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook: Eat Like You Give a Fuck

u/coldize · 1 pointr/loseit

So I don't actually own these two but I was clicking through the Amazon Gift Guide and they both sparked my interest enough to check them out. They're on my Christmas list for sure haha. :)

  • Thug Kitchen

    This book is awesome. Seriously awesome. It's wonderfully irreverent, well-illustrated, well-organized, it has plenty of really pitch perfect recipes that are simple and inspiring. Probably my favorite thing about it though is the intro since it has a really great holistic approach to just being in a kitchen and choosing food mindfully which is something I appreciate SO much over just a cookbook that is a list of recipes. All the recipes are vegetarian so just keep that in mind. It's kind of the schtick of the book "hey dumbass, eat more vegetables"

  • The Food Lab - Cooking Through Science

    For similar reasons as above, I liked this because it EXPLAINS the process of cooking and not just telling you what to do. This is really helpful for me in understanding what I'm doing and creating a strong mental connection to actually learning it. The intro is once again filled with lots of great insight explaining why you might make the choices you make in a kitchen. It can feel a little bit like a textbook at times, but honestly I kind of like that, especially because it's something I'm highly interested in and motivated to learn. Being both studious and epicurious, I was really drawn to this book as I was learning more about it. I will probably buy this book. The recipes, as I can tell from what I saw, aren't really "health-conscious" per se. I think the bigger downside is the potential to turn into a really really obnoxious food snob. But hey, maybe that's a good thing, too. Lol

This is an extremely well rated vegan cookbook that I came across while browsing cookbooks for my SIL. It was so highly rated I considered picking it up, even though absolutely none of us are vegan. NSFW language within the book.

Maybe a copy Thug Kitchen?

u/wolfstrike · 1 pointr/Cooking

I love this cookbook

Thug Kitchen has some amazing (Vegetarian) dishes. One of my favorite dishes is the Roasted Siracha Cauliflower and Peanut Sauce.

So good.

u/HornOfDagoth · 1 pointr/BodyAcceptance

Good job on practicing HAES!

See your doctor and explain your issue, first to make sure your meds aren't messing you up too much, and to see if you can afford or if your doctor can prescribe (so insurance covers) a visit to a registered nutritionist or dietitian. They can probably offer some very specific ideas to you that meet your vegan and gluten-free requirements but still will cover basic nutrients.

If you can't see a dietitian or nutritionist, or continue to struggle to eat, ask your doctor if they recommend a vitamin for you. (Some doctors don't or they might interfere with your medication for your bipolar or thyroid stuff.)

I agree with other commenters who say to give yourself permission to enjoy the few foods you do enjoy. If you like simple things like mac and cheese, try doing things like adding stuff into it even if you start with a frozen or from-box dish. Add a can of diced tomatoes, chickpeas, and corn. Voila! A new dish with some extra calories and nutrients.

If you want to check out a fun cooking resource (in case it will jump start feeling more motivated about cooking), try They're not all gluten-free recipes, but they're vegan and probably can be modified relatively easily to be gluten-free. Cookbook here:

u/KingBlackthorn1 · 1 pointr/AskMen

There’s this cook book called “Eat Like You Give a Fuck”. It’s a cheap cook book with cheaper and easier recipient. Do note it’s a vegan cook book but it’s great, tasty and healthy food that’s vegan. Many recipients are worth trying out because it’s based off of street food and such. No need to go full vegan obviously but it’s my fave cookbook. Through the book it tells you where you find the ingredients in the super market it walks you through super well how to make the food and it teaches you certain things to have proper cooking technique. It’s really such an outstanding beginner book. I can’t speak highly enough of it.

Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook: Eat Like You Give a F*ck (Thug Kitchen Cookbooks)

u/Zippies_and_Hoodups · 1 pointr/vegan

I just checked out Minimalist Baker's cookbook and the Thug Kitchen: Eat Like You Give A Fuck Minimalist Baker was meh, but Thug Kitchen is amazing. A lot of the recipes use cheap, simple ingredients and the dishes are pure deliciousness. I'm currently borrowing these books from the library, but I think I definitely need to add Thug Kitchen to my collection.

I also have the Seitanic Spellbook by the Vegan Black Metal Chef. It's ok for some basic stuff, but I don't care for how it's organized. Also, he doesn't use measurements in any of his recipes, which is ok if you like to improvise a lot, but it kinda leaves me in the dark if I'm trying a new recipe.

Then there's Happy, Healthy Vegan Kitchen by Kathy Patalsky which is ok if you can get past her narratives and obscure ingredients. Like, bitch, I'm not getting six different unicorn salts to put on my toast.

I also have The Joys of Vegan Baking (meh), and Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World (haven't tried it yet).

Those look very good. I highly recommend getting the cookbook Thug Kitchen if you want some really good vegan recipes (and don't already have it). Like the book says, "Eat like you give a f*ck!
