Cookbook Contest: My Sweet Vegan

Cookbook Contest: My Sweet Vegan

It’s time for another cookbook giveaway. Everyone can use a vegan cookbook. So, enter to win one today!

To enter the contest, just leave a comment. Leave a comment here describing what you like about vegan baking.

For me, the thing I like most is that the batter is safe to eat. I just love chocolate chip cookie dough. But when it’s made with eggs it’s unsafe to eat raw. Vegan cookie dough, however, is extremely unlikely to be contaminated with salmonella and can be eaten raw (when prepared in a clean kitchen). And then when I’ve had a taste of the dough, I bake them up and enjoy the baked cookies, too!

Why do you like vegan baking? Or what do you expect to enjoy about it?

Like last month, the prize cookbook is My Sweet Vegan by Hannah Kaminsky.

Submissions are open until the end of June, 2011. July 1st or thereabouts I will randomly choose a winner and mail a cookbook to them. That means this: please use a valid email address when you fill out the comment form below!

Please note:

  • The giveaway is currently only open to residents of the US and Canada. This is simply because of shipping costs.
  • If you already own this book or if you’ve won a book from Vegan Soapbox in the past, please don’t enter the contest. But please DO tell your friends, family, coworkers, fans, and whoever else you want about this giveaway!
  • Do you have a vegan blog or website? A vegan cookbook giveaway is a great, relatively inexpensive way to spread the vegan word and spread the vegan love.

  1. I agree! I love being able to sneak spoonfuls of batter without worrying about foodborne illness. Who needs eggs?!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. i love vegan baking because it makes me popular at parties and is a sweet intro to conversations about veganism.

  3. My favorite thing about vegan baking is telling everyone my goodies are vegan! People are usually shocked and ask all kinds of questions about how it’s even possible… and how it’s better than “traditional” baking!

  4. What I love about baking is that I am so bad at it that when I actually make something and it comes out good, I am SOOOO proud of myself. I hate to cut into it and eat it because I get afraid I’ll never be able to do it again :)

    That’s why I really need a cookbook!

  5. I like vegan baking because I feel less guilty about eating sweets! I would love a good cookbook to help me out.

  6. I LOVE not worrying about licking the batter off of the spatula :)

  7. It’s great to make vegan treats that that can really be enjoyed knowing no animals were hurt or caged or suffered to produce that sweet treat. It’s pretty hard to enjoy a great non-vegan baked good when you know an animal had to be stuffed in a crate or dark barn and suffered to make that item possible.

  8. Love baking and now it is even better that I only bake vegan. Would love a new baking cookbook, who wouldn’t?

  9. I love vegan baking because I can make something delicious for me and my little girl to eat with the knowledge that she is starting her life (10 months!) compassionately.

  10. I love when people say incredulously, “This is VEGAN?! It’s so good!” Score! And I’ve found that it’s much faster to bake non-vegan and I’ve never used my Cuisin-Art since I started eating vegan.

  11. My favorite thing about vegan baking is using vegetables where no one would assume they’d be. I use purred veggies in both svory and sweet vegan baking.

  12. I love to let people try my creations and then surprise them with the fact that it is vegan! It’s one of the best ways to spread the knowledge that vegan food actually tastes good!


  13. vegan baking is rad because there are no animals in my stuffs! it also pushes me to think outside the box and veganize things… i am not the best at baking tho so this book would help!

  14. I love that it’s something that I can share with my daughter and not worry about things like raw eggs, etc. I remember that being an issue when I’d cook or bake with my mom growing up, and I am glad we can just have a fun, messy time together without fear of things like food poisoning! :)

  15. I love being able to surprise people who think that all vegan food tastes like cardboard. I also love to be able to lick batter off my spatula without having to worry about salmonella.

  16. I love vegan baking because it makes me feel like I’m a better person for sparing animals in my meals. I’m not vegan or vegetarian but I try to eat very little animal products. I look forward to more vegan days in my kitchen. Good luck to everyone!

  17. I’m just now learning about veganism, and right now I don’t have many vegan options available. I do try and eat one vegan meal a day, if not more. But, baking is one of the easier things to do vegan! The ingredients are a lot of the time things you already have in your kitchen. It’s also so much healthier!!

  18. Vegan baking is a great way to show people how delicious cruelty-free living can be! And a fun way to celebrate special days, like Father’s Day. We made lemon bars from The Joy of Vegan Baking today – yum yum!

  19. It’s the batter I love! Sometimes I think vegan cake batter is better than the cake itself. :)

  20. I love baking delicious vegan treats and sharing them with friends and family who cannot believe vegan cooking can taste so flavorful and yummy!

  21. I love vegan baking because it’s more enjoyable thinking there isn’t any animal products in my yummy treats. And there’s never any dairy, which quite a few people I know have an intolerance/allergy to.

  22. What I love most about vegan baking is the cruelty-free aspect of it. Being able to safely eat the batter is definitely a plus as well! ;)

  23. I went vegan for my health initially, due to the many hormone issues, it was suggested to give up the meat because of all the growth hormones that are injected into the animals, and I was off of my medications within 6 months after going vegan!!! XOXO

    I have a sweet tooth, so I still need to bake me a cake, pie, dessert and vegan baking is the answer!!!

    An it harm none, do what ye will…

  24. What could be sweeter than cruelty free desserts?

    I love vegan baking because nothing is a better conversation starter about a cruelty free diet. At a minimum a yummy vegan brownie makes it more difficult for others to say that a vegan diet is tasteless and only includes lettuce and tofu. Maybe vegan baked treats are the ambassadors to the meat eating world. :)

  25. I like vegan baking becuase, well, i mean what’s not to love? it’s delicious and “guilt free” in the sense that it contains no animal products! perfect for a vegan with a sweet tooth

  26. I love vegan baking because it’s most delicious and does not contribute to suffering. My favorite local grocery store has a number of vegan treats, and I love going through the checkout line with a vegan cupcake or sticky bun. The checkers always comment on how delicious they look (or they have tasted them and they comment on how delicious they ARE) and I enthusiastically say: “Yes, and they’re vegan!” I think a great way for me to continue to step up my impact would be to cook from this cookbook and distribute to non-vegans in my grad program. This is one I would dearly love to own.

  27. I might be too late to enter, but if not, here’s my entry. I like to experiment with all kinds of cooking. Hope I win a cookbook.

  28. Hopefully not too late to enter! I love cooking for my vegetarian and vegan friends, baking for them is a bit tougher though so I’ll take any help I can get :)

  29. My favorite part about vegan baking is that it’s cruelty free and we can eat delicious baked goods with a happy concience. And most of the vegan baked goods taste better than the non-animal friendly junk, so I love sharing it with others and watching their eyes light up at the yummy flavors. To be vegan is to be colorful. ;)
