The Edgy Veg turns traditional plant-based cuisine upside down

This October, Candice Hutchings and James Aita will release their first cookbook, The Edgy Veg.

Featuring over 138 recipes for whenever you feel the need for stick-to-your ribs comfort dishes, The Edgy Veg recreates childhood and adult favorites that will satisfy any craving. Those takeout pangs will be banished once and for all once you sample munchies such as the Buffalo Cauliflower Wings and Montreal Famous Poutine, mains including the Perfectly Pleasing Pesto Pizza, In Search of General Tso’s Chicken or Half Baked Mac and Cheese, and sweet endings like the Thank you Very Matcha Ice Cream. In addition to recipes from brunch staples to not-boring salads, sandwiches and cocktails, The Edgy Veg will break down the essentials and basics of cooking vegan. With everything from how to stock a vegan pantry, to learning bases such as pizzeria style dough, vegan sauces and meatless butchery, the book will guide both experienced chefs and first time vegan cooks into the kitchen of an Edgy Veg, introducing the core fundamentals that everyone needs to know.

“Every recipe we create can, of course, be enjoyed by vegans and vegetarians, but also omnivores alike,” says Candice. “They’re all approved by my husband and co-creator James, a former meat and cheese loving guy, and have been tirelessly tested on friends and family.”

So toss out the dairy, milk, eggs and tired tofu and say hello to tasty tacos, perfect pizza and deluxe burgers and fries that you and your taste buds can feel good about. Nothing is off-limits and everything is vegan, so it’s time to put down that spiralizer and get ready to have your cake, burger and fries, and eat them too.
