If you are curious about vegan cooking, this club is for you! Each month participants make three recipes from popular cookbooks then share their reflections with the group. Novice to expert cooks are welcome, as are interested non-cooks. Registration not required.

You may download the recipes using the link below or pick them up at East Lake Library, 2727 E. Lake Street, Minneapolis, MN 55406. Printed recipe packets are available at the library’s Safe Pick-Up Station. Simply check in with the greeter and ask for the Vegan Recipe Club packet. If you would like contactless pick-up, please call the library during open hours and request curbside service.

The cookbook selection for July is Appetite for Reduction – 2011 – by Isa Chandra Moskowitz.

The publisher describes the book:

“In Appetite for Reduction, bestselling author and vegan chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz shares 125 delectable, nutritionally-balanced recipes for the foods you crave–lasagna, tacos, barbecue, curries, stews, and much more–that’s all only 200 to 400 calories per serving, Plant-based and packed with nutrients, Low in saturated fat and sugar; high in fiber, Drop-dead delicious.

You’ll also find lots of gluten-free and soy-free options. The best part? Dinner can be on the table in less than 30 minutes. So ditch those diet shakes. Skip that lemonade cleanse. And fight for your right to eat something satisfying! Now you can look better, feel better, and have more energy while eating the food (and portions) you deserve.”
