Whether you already love vegan food or need some convincing, YouTube star Laura Miller offers more than a hundred entirely vegan and mostly raw recipes for all people who want to eat deliciously.
Raw. Vegan. Not Gross. is the debut cookbook from YouTube's Tastemade star Laura Miller. A soon to be modern classic, Raw. Vegan. Not Gross. will engage your taste buds with strengthening breakfasts (avocado grapefruit bowls; ginger maple granola), easy weeknight dinners (golden gazpacho; sweet potato curry), crowd-pleasing party food (mango and coconut jicama tacos; spicy mango chile wraps), irresistible drinks & desserts (lavender cheesecake; chile truffles), and many more nutritious, satisfying dishes that are as beautiful and fun to make as they are healthful. Eschewing a strict or dogmatic approach to raw veganism, Laura's self-deprecating humor, candor about issues of food and body-image, and infectious enthusiasm make her the ideal guide and travel companion for people who want to fall back in love with produce or simply celebrate the joy of real, good food.

I'm giving this 3 stars (neutral, in my opinion) because the recipes are missing ingredients and/or steps. When baking, this is critical! And there are at least two recipes missing things. The crepes call for water in the instructions but it isn't listed. For the blackberry chia muffins, adding almond milk is listed in the instructions but it's nowhere to be found in the ingredients list. This can absolutely ruin the recipe. I still have no idea how much almond milk to add and didn't realize until I was halfway through the recipe. Now, what to do?! I just find this annoying. A book that goes to print shouldn't have this many mistakes. Otherwise, I LOVE Laura. So I hate not being able to give this 5 stars. Such a bummer.
UPDATE: I tried adding 1 cup almond milk to the recipe 1/4 at a time. The muffins came out pretty awful. If anyone figures this out, please post the info. (Blackberry chia muffins)
Just got this book in the mail yesterday, but I have read through it all and I am so eager to try everything! I'm not fully raw but look forward to trying these inventive and creative recipes! I've been a follower of Laura's work on YouTube for quite some time and am only sad she didn't include her (cooked) vegan chilli recipe, because I love that one so much, I suggest looking it up on YouTube - it's so delicious and hearty! But I love her unique take on raw food, as it's not just raw veggies and fruits, she gets really creative with a multitude of ingredients I've never heard of before. I'll be strongly recommending this book to everyone I know for healthier dining and dessert options!
Laura Miller shows her vibrant personality with beautiful pictures and down to earth way of talking to you as a friend as you read through her thoughts on raw, vegan, and her love of food. The recipes and photos make your mouth water, and encourage even the new to raw/vegan food ready to dive in and eat a healthier lifestyle. I strongly urge you to check out her YouTube channel, and then come back and buy this book, to bring Laura's spirit into your own kitchen.
