Weekly Giveaway: Veganize This! by Jenn Shagrin! Allychristine is the winner!
Well, I'm not sure if Jenn Shagrin, the author of brand new vegan cookbook, Veganize This!: From Surf & Turf to Ice-Cream Pie--200 Animal-Free Recipes for People Who Love to Eat (http://www.amazon.com/Veganize-This-Ice-Cream-Pie-200-Animal-Free/dp/0738214027), is Italian, but she's definitely awesome. Also, Veganize This! includes a recipe for Quattro Formaggio White Truffle Macaroni and Cheese, and that sounds pretty Italian, right? Ethnicity aside, Jenn and her cookbook are freaking amazing. She's a master of vegan meat and dairy substitutes — her versions will blow your mind. Plus, there's a recipe for Vegan Doritos. Need I say more?
For a chance to win, let me know what your favorite Italian dish is.
Giveaway ends on Tuesday, February 15th at midnight, PST! Winner will be chosen at random! Must live in USA to win.
I love Italian food! One of my faves would be spinach lasagna but I love all the pastas!
It's also hard for me to choose a favorite, but I've got to give a shout out to rapini greens. Steam them lightly and top with chopped fresh basil, toasted pine nuts, and a drizzle of olive oil and you will have a yummy, slightly bitter/slightly toasty Italian style side dish.... and for the main I would love mixed mushroom risotto, or gnocchi with pesto and fresh tomatoes. Whether I win or not, I can't wait to check out this cook book by the way, it sounds really fun and awesome!
i'm mildly obsessed with Italian food; i should be if i'm about 50% Italian, right??? ;D
love love LOVE eggplant parm to death....gnocchi is the runner up, but anything smothered in homemade marinara sauce is a winner in my book ;)b
I love the basics, polenta, pasta, and garlic bread. :)
I love Lasagna and cook books. :-)
My favourite Italian dish would probably beee...... either veggie-filled lasagna OR pizza / calzones made with my beer crust recipe (full of herbs and nooch!), topped or filled with all manner of veggies and maybe daiya if I'm feeling indulgent. Basically all the same ingredients--tomato sauce, spinach, mushrooms, onions, artichoke hearts, olives, red peppers, nooch--but it depends on if I want noodles or a big soft crust with crispy edges. ;)b
Hummmm... Mmm... anything with oodles of roasted eggplant on it! Like sometimes I roast eggplant and just toss it with some thin pasta, basil, and olive oil so that the natural eggplant flavor isn't covered up by any sauce or anything... (thanks VegWeb, now I know what's for dinner tonight!)
I make this really yummy pasta bake with steamed or roasted veggies, penne pasta, bechamel and marinara sauces and panko breading. So good! Oh, and pizza <3 gotta love pizza.
Mmmm vegan eggplant parm...
or even just a nice crisp garden salad to go with it...
Omg let's just leave it at everything Italian! Omnomnom.
breaded eggplant with a delicious tomato sauce.
I love a bowl of cappellini pomodoro.
Definitely ravioli, oh, and lasagna...And well, just about anything Italian! Do men count? YES!!! :-)
vegan lasagna with garlic bread
Can I say spaghetti marinara? You could throw in some breaded eggplant too...
brick oven veggie pizza!
Angel hair bruschetta or with pesto!
:)>>> I LOVE the basic margherita pizza with huge slices of fresh tomato, fragrant basil, and fresh mozzarella cheese. Next on the list would have to be eggplant parmesan. I also love cannolis and tiramisu! A good vodka sauce is also a favorite especially when paired with stuffed shells and a nice, crusty baguette. ;)b
