The coronavirus pandemic, with its required “social distancing” and closed restaurants, has stranded many of us in a strange new world where we have to cook for ourselves, not just once, but day after day. Many long-term food-shoppers, vegan and nonvegan alike, are noting those vegan staples beans, rice, and pasta to be among the cheapest to buy and easiest to store. But once home, many of us hungry people are looking at the grocery stockpile, scratching our heads, and saying, “Okay, now what?”
American Vegan Society (AVS) has an answer in one of the fan-favorite cookbooks we offer, “Teach yourself to cook!” with Apples, Bean Dip, and Carrot Cake (ABC) by Anne and Freya Dinshah, available in print or as an e-book. It’s easy to follow along and use it as a step-by-step course with each skill building on the previous. Soon you are confidently making real “adult” recipes such as Lentil Vegetable Stew, Spinach Tofu Lasagna, and Apple Pie safely using those sharp knives, stove, oven, and blender.
Although it’s specifically pitched to kids, Apples, Bean Dip, & Carrot Cake: Kids! Teach Yourself to Cook is just a simple, straightforward intro to the culinary arts that anyone of any age can benefit from. Better yet, if you happen to be home with your children and running out of go-to activities, the book can serve as a fun educational project that’s tasty too!
A collaboration by the president and vice president of AVS, who have spent decades creating healthful plant-based meals together at home, ABC teaches easy, delicious, healthful recipes for real food, not packaged mixes or sugar-loaded desserts. Full-color photos and simple instructions make it easy to master the basics of cooking. You’ll get better and better at it all while eating better food and shoring up your body’s immunity resources.
AVS wants to get this tool to everyone and is offering the print version of ABC for 60% off, now only $10.00 with free shipping. If you want to get started tonight, grab the e-book for FREE. We may all be in this for the long haul – let’s make something of it!
