Let me start with- I’m definitely not vegan. Or vegetarian. Or even always very healthy. I then married a Texan who is seriously into all things with a face. terrible way of putting it, I know, but seriously true. So why am I even talking about Street Vegan by Adam Sobel? Because I am really into creative food & vegan recipes definitely have that going for them! Keep reading to find out if this is what I was looking for!

I am an intense lover of food trucks…despite not really having access to them where I live currently. Food trucks have really opened up a widely accessible outlet to the public for really creative food. Food that doesn’t take long to serve either. The author Adam Sobel is the chef and owner of the four-time Vendy Award–winning vegan food truck the Cinnamon Snail. He has appeared on Food Network and PBS and has written about vegan food for Vegetarian Times. Each recipe definitely is unique & not something I’ve seen before- which is a really good thing! I think this book is even more special to me since I’m not vegan & am not particularly familiar with all of the techniques. Like raw pizza- that looks like a lot of fun! Some of my favorites are actually the soups which I’m already planning to try soon. All in all- very unique & this book has made me inquisitive about a new kind of cuisine…which is always a good thing! You can purchase Street Vegan from Amazon here– available in kindle format as well!
