Vegan Everyday is a fabulous cookbook full of delicious vegan recipes

Vegan Everyday is a delicious cookbook for vegans everywhere!   While I am not vegan, I eat vegetarian at least twice a week so this is a great cookbook for me.    One of the things we eat a lot of is tofu and this cookbook has a ton of great tofu recipes.

The cookbook starts with an introduction and everything you need for a vegan and gluten free pantry.  It then goes into breakfasts, appetizers, snacks, pasta, stir fry, soups, baked goods, and desserts.   Each section is filled with recipes and then there are several large color photos of some of the recipes.

Many of the recipes are easy to prepare and can be cooked in under 30 minutes.   Some of the recipes I can’t wait to try are Chocolate Hazelnut Milk, Singapore Summer Rolls, Mediterranean Bean Salad, Spicy Angel Hair Toss, Pecan Pie, and even Grasshopper Pie.

Sweet and Sour Tofu with peppers and broccoli is a vegan delight

The recipe I wanted to try first was the Sweet and Sour Tofu Stir Fry Recipe.  I love tofu in stir fries and knew this would be a great recipe.  It takes less then 20 minutes to prepare and is really flavorful.  It has tofu, red peppers, broccoli, and pineapple with a delicious sweet and sour sauce.
