Cookbook Excitement

Roasted Cauliflower and Wilted Spinach Salad

I’m getting really excited about my upcoming cookbook. Herbivore will be publishing it, which is fantastic, and we hope to have it in people’s hands by November 15th of this year. You will be able to order it direct from Herbivore, on Amazon, and a few other places as well.

It’s going to be great!

Here’s a sneak peek of some of the recipes that will be in the book:

Sheera – An Indian Cream of Wheat

Strawberry Rambutan Boba Tea
Strawberry-Rambutan Boba Tea - Homemade Vegan Mix!

I’m really happy about all the recipes so far, but I must say, I’m a little overly excited about the boba tea. All the commercially available mixes I’ve found are not vegan (they contain “non-dairy” creamers contianing, you guessed it, dairy). I’ve figured out a way to make a boba tea powder you can mix up at home in bulk. Yippee! Boba tea for everyone!

I also wanted to give a quick shout-out to my 70+ testers who are helping me make sure the recipes work. You guys rock, I wouldn’t be able to do this without you! Thanks!

    I am really excited and anxiously awaiting it. Since I discovered your site I have made nearly everything I can. If you need any more testers…I am ready and willing. I also just subscribed to herbivore just for your interview!

    all of those recipes, especially the sheera, look absolutely delectable. i can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of the cookbook! i hope the photographs will be as awesome as the ones on the blog!

    Is it too late to ask if you need any more testers? Specifically, any boba tea mix testers? Just kidding- everything looks so good.

  4. Kat

    Holy swizzlesticks – I am BEYOND excited about this!!! I am literally beside myself in anticipation. When can I pre-order?!

    Please tell me you took care of all the photography in the book yoursel?

    I can ‘t wait for the boba recipes!!! I love it but have to be really careful with it. Of course, since the only way I can have boba is to drive 40 miles one way, I rarely get it. And I love cookbooks.

    Rambutan? For real for real? Aweseome.

    I’ve loved those little buggers since 1998 when I went to Vietnam (where they’re known as chom choms) and ate them straight from the tree. So cool to see them working their way into unique recipes.

    Really looking forward to your book! Just watch out for Josh. You can’t trust a dude with a mug like that.

    Congrats! I can’t wait to get your book. Everything you make looks fantastic. Vegan cookbooks are the best.

    Happy 4th of July!

    Congratulations!! I absolutely love your blog, and am eagerly awaiting your cookbook. You are an inspiration!! :)

  9. Robin

    Congratulations on your upcoming book! I am usually wary of vegan food– but I have tried some of your recipes and have been SO impressed!! I will definitely pick up a copy of the new book! :D

  10. Zodie

    Hi! Great photographs – really appreciate the effort you go to. Is the book going to be available on I really hope so – would love to be able to get a copy here the UK.

  11. Crystal

    Yay! I’m so excited for you. Your pics and food look great and I’ll definitely be buying this cookbook.

    I’m excited about the bubble tea too as it’s one of my favorite treats.

  12. Sunshine

    Hi Lolo!
    I’d really like to get a copy of your book when it’s in the shops but there’s one problem: I live in Germany where it won’t be in the shops! Do I have any possibility to purchase your book without paying horribly high shipping costs? Will it be available at (the German site)?

  13. Hillary

    Oh wow! I’m not even a vegan and I’m excited about your cookbook! What is the exact date it comes out? The sheera picture looks absolutely delicious. I LOVE cream of wheat as it is. Thanks for the previews! :) And if you’re interested, we’d love to have your recipes over at Recipe4Living; the vegan selection is very much underrepresented. Or, you can be our next celebrity chef! :)

    I got to your site originally because of those fantastic cupcakes but now I see that the cupcakes were just the beginning. These pics look tremendous. I am a vegetarian aspiring to be a vegan and it looks like your cookbook will be an inspiration! You do amazing work.

    Cherry Almond Apple Couscous? On Squash?? Yuuuum!

  15. Claudia

    Hurrah, a cookbook! I adore your site, which is incredibly beautiful as well as inspirational and educational, and can’t wait for your cookbook to come out!

  16. Mercedes

    Your photos are so enticing, I’m not at all vegan, but I definitely look forward to picking up your cookbook as it seems like it will have lots of unique things!

  17. Rachel

    I have never so eagerly anticipated a cookbook before! I might even be more excited about this than the next Harry Potter, and I’ve been waiting for that for years.

    When can we expect it on Amazon?

  18. kat

    I just had to comment twice to illustrate my extreme anticipation/excitement about this book. I plan to base my entire diet around the contents of this lovely book!!

    dommage que les textes n’est pas une version bilingue car les photos donne une envie terrible de faire les recettes. a moins que je me mette à l’anglais

  21. chosha

    Wow, I’m really looking forward to this recipe book, and I’m not even vegan. You blog is the first thing that ever convinced me that a person can be vegan and still have an interesting diet and it will be first on my gift list for two friends: one a vegetarian and the other who simply can’t tolerate dairy. I think all three of us are going to be very happy with it, if the recipes I see here are anything to go by. :)

  22. bethie

    everything looks delish, besides herbivore & amazon, where else can the cookbook be bought? i am very wary of, will the book be available at too?

    nov 15, perfect release date, just in time for the holidays ;)
