THE EDGY VEG: Carnivore-Approved Vegan Recipes

OCTOBER 2017

A vegan in a world of quinoa and kale that refuses to go with the grain.

 

Who says you have to give up your insatiable need for comfort food just because you want to eat better for yourself, animals and the planet? The Edgy Veg, the YouTube sensation (over 200,000 subscribers and counting, not to mention 630,000 + monthly views) has a culinary mission to revolutionize vegan food as we know it.

Tired of traditional plant-based diets filled with salads and smoothies that just felt, well, tired, Candice Hutchings set out to satisfy familiar cravings by recreating childhood and adult favorites for folks with sophisticated palates and food-nerd obsessions.

Every recipe will be enjoyed by vegans, vegetarians and omnivores alike — they’re all approved by Candice's husband James, a former meat- and cheese‑loving guy, and have been tirelessly tested on friends and family.

The Edgy Veg has 138 amazing recipes for whenever you feel the need for stick-to-your‑ribs comfort dishes. Those takeout pangs will be banished once and for all once you sample their Perfectly Pleasing Pesto Pizza, In Search of General Tso’s Chicken or crispy Buffalo Cauliflower Wings. So toss out the dairy, milk, eggs and tired tofu and say hello to tasty tacos, perfect pizza and deluxe burgers and fries that you and your tastebuds can feel good about. Nothing is off-limits and everything is vegan.

 

CANDICE HUTCHINGS is host and co-creator of The Edgy Veg (with her husband James Aita), a YouTube phenomenon with over 200,000 subscribers.
