Booktalk: Sam Turnbull’s “Fast Easy Cheap Vegan”

“I grew up in a family of foodies, chefs, butchers, and hunters (yes, it’s true). My household had a flock of chickens (both for eggs and for eating), the freezers were stocked full of meat, steaks were cooked rare, and there were even real animal heads decorating the walls (not that I ever liked the heads). … So, as I’m sure you can imagine, switching to veganism was a BIG change for me.”


Sam Turnbull’s second cookbook, Fast Easy Cheap Vegan, makes the case that an animal-free vegan diet doesn’t have to be time-consuming, too much work or even expensive.

This cookbook is all about smart tips and easy techniques that simplify cooking. Many recipes are one-pot, freezer-friendly, and make-ahead meals. And Sam says you can make 101 recipes in fewer than 30 minutes.
