Vegan Cookbook Giveaway: Defensive Eating with Morrissey & Comfort Eating with Nick Cave!!!


You guys! There is nothing more fun than opening the mailbox and finding two of the coolest little cookbooks! Check this out.

Automne Zingg is a writer, illustrator, musician, and video artist based in LA. She has a bit of a dark sense of humor and while drowning her sorrows after a breakup, she started to draw. She came up with all kinds of funny, zany, crazy illustrations while listening to Nick Cave and Morrissey and as they became weirder, she started to feel better! A zine was born.

Then, she partnered with Joshua Ploeg who is a founder of the queercore movement and a traveling vegan chef. He came up with some really clever and creative recipes to match up with Automne’s illustrations.

The books are small, slightly snarky (which I love!), and to the point. The illustrations alone make these books a must have but the recipes are equally as amazing and you will see why in a sec.

Comfort Eating with Nick Cave: Vegan Recipes to Get Deep Inside You is an ode to Nick Cave who has produced over 15 albums and continues to tour and record. He also does film work. This book has recipes for chili, frosting, burritos, the most awesome baked ziti recipe I have ever seen (recipe below!), cinnamon rolls, mac ‘n cheeze (of course!), hoagies, ranch dressing (which I am going to say right now is one of the all time best recipes out there and will be a staple in my house from now on) and so much more!

Defensive Eating with Morrissey: Vegan Recipe from the One You Left Behind is for the man himself, Morrissey. You know him, right? Madison Square Garden went vegan when he played there. With and without The Smiths, has sold millions of albums, including Meat is Murder. He is an outspoken vegan and political commentator. This book has recipes for asparagus, beans, Devil’s food cake, cookies, disco fries (recipe below!), tapas, “Both” which is strawberry spread and chocolate spread (and OMG, now you can have both!) and even a recipe for leftovers which just shows just how clever these books are.

I am telling you, I get vegan cookbooks all the time and I usually have a hard time finding one, let alone ten recipes, I want to make. Both of these little books are winners!

I am giving away 3, that’s THREE, of each cookbook! Isn’t that exciting?
