Cute, tattooed co-eds throw down in the kitchen!
PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook: 275 Easy, Cheap, and Delicious Recipes to Keep You Vegan at School is aimed at students living in dorms, an experience I am a decade removed from. Still, I remain a fan of tasty food made cheaply and easily so this book excites me. Yes, nearly all the recipes are carb heavy, many are of questionable nutritional value, and most involve very few fresh vegetables beyond onions, but that’s how college is. Shit is real! You don’t have time to be sprouting mung beans and basting turducken. You’ve got books to read and beer to drink!
Frankly, I’m amazed at all the things you can make in a microwave (including cake!). So far I’ve only made spaghetti and meat sauce. While the sauce—thick with Gimme Lean—was deliciously seasoned, the pasta was a mushy nightmare I am loath to revisit. Though preparing a meal in a microwave is more like a science experiment than cooking, there is fun to be had, and possibly even a tasty cake or two to be eaten. I can’t wait to start nuking more things! I think every microwave should come with a copy of this animal-friendly book.
