Our April Cookbook: How It All Vegan by Sarah Kramer

howitallvegan10theditionA big thanks to everyone who voted in the April VegCookbook poll! As I mentioned in the poll post, VegCookbook author, Sarah Kramer, announced on her blog earlier this month that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. I want to support Sarah during this challenging time by cooking from one of her VegCookbooks in April, so all of the VegCookbooks listed in the poll were by Sarah.

The poll results are in, and you chose How It All Vegan! by Sarah Kramer to be our April 2013 VegCookbook. You can connect with Sarah on her blog, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

If you’re new to the VegCookbook Club, you can read about how to participate on the VegCookbook Club About page, and read about folks’ experiences with the on the Love Notes page.

I’m looking forward to cooking through How It All Vegan! with you in April, and to hearing about what you cooked from our March VegCookbook, Vegan Brunch, on Monday. Have a great weekend!

  1. Britt, I’m working on my post to wrap up Vegan Brunch now. It’s a quick one–busy weekend. Looking forward to Sarah’s book.

  2. I apologize for not getting this posted sooner, I can’t believe it’s already the end of April.
    I’ve been following the VegCookBook Club for a while, but never participated until Ms. Britt Bravo, rolled out Sarah Kramer’s story & we selected How it All Vegan. Thank you! I was very inspired by her story. I’ve never had cancer & hope not to, but I came to the realization this month that cancer is all around me, ugh. FORK CANCER!!!

    Anyway, I cooked a few recipes from her book this month that I wanted to share. Also, I posted pictures of this dishes on the Vegcookbook Club Flickr Group (under nicnat001).

    How It All Vegan! by Sarah Kramer and Tanya Barnard: Vegetable Pasta Salad p.66
    I substituted the snow peas for purple cauliflower…delicious! When I found out my next door neighbor Diana was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this month, I really wanted to bring over some healthy food. So, I choose to make this dish. I sampled throughout the process, & when I handed over the finished product to her husband over our shared backyard fence I realized that I forgot to save me a bowl. I’ll just have to make it again soon!

    How It All Vegan! by Sarah Kramer and Tanya Barnard: Mashed Garlic Potatoes with Kale p.94
    I had recently purchased a huge bag of baby kale from Costco, so I substituted the regular kale for baby kale. I’m not quite sure I liked the baby kale. The next time I make this dish; I’ll be using the good ole’ reg Kale. Anyway, I made this dish as a side for a dinner party I hosted earlier this month. Everyone loved it and had went back for more, so I assume that’s a good sign 🙂 

    I’ve been cooking from this book and absolutely love it. Thank you for sharing Sarah Kramer’s story, I continue to follow her progress on her blog.

    Cheers,N

    • Hi Nicole,

      So glad to see that you’ve joined the Flickr group. The photo of the Vegetable Pasta Salad with the purple cauliflower is AWESOME. I totally want to make it with purple cauliflower, or anything really, with purple cauliflower. So pretty. The Mashed Garlic Potatoes with Kale looks delicious too.

      I hope you’ll join us in May when we cook from Vegan on the Cheap!
