Coming off the success of her debut cookbook, But I Could Never Go Vegan!, Turner delivers a cookbook designed to handle all the typical excuses or doubts for not eating vegan food. For example, I dont know what wed do without so many of the staple ingredients we use every day! highlights vegan pantry staples such as basic cashew cheese sauce. Turners wit and charm shine through the stories and chapter titles: If forced to choose between chicken wings and me, my spouse would choose the wings. Many recipes are naturally vegan, such as mushroom kale skillet hash and a green quinoa salad. However, the Double-Double Cheeseburger, which requires vegan substitutions and seemingly a great deal of work, is a gamble with carnivores and may not be worth the effort. The book is organized by excuses and not set out as typical cookbooks are. Helpful icons at the beginning of each recipe label those that are gluten-free, nut-free, or in need of some advanced preparation. Recipes are outlined with prep time and active time commitments and photographs are plentiful. With a great sense of humor and a riposte for every possible excuse, Turners book may have even the most reluctant family considering going vegan. Photos. (Nov.)
