Cookbook Review: The Happy Herbivore by Lindsay Nixon

I love cookbooks. I have a small but growing collection of them next to my dog-eared collection of foodie magazines. Recently, I received a review copy of Lindsay Nixon’s blog-turned-book, The Happy Herbivore.

The Happy Herbivore 
The Happy Herbivore is packed with more than 100 vegan-friendly recipes.

Lindsay’s book inspires me to be more creative in the kitchen by pairing interesting grains, fruits and vegetables together — without driving myself crazy at the grocery trying to find obscure ingredients.

I adore Lindsay's simple yet thoughtful recipes. They have enough pizzazz to keep from seeming boring, yet are recipes that both pro foodies and novices can handle. Plus, for all of you omnivores out there (like me) who wonder how vegans can give up cheese, Lindsay has great vegan options for cheesy favorites like Baked Shells and Cheese, Easy Macaroni and Cheese and Fettuccine Alfredo.

Read on to learn more about Lindsay and her book, The Happy Herbivore — then go grab a copy and get going in the kitchen!
