$ 24.99

After seven years of designing recipes and teaching vegan cuisine at the Sanctuary, we are delighted to tell the story of Compassionate Cuisine through an array of recipes that we hope will inspire and delight you. Interwoven with the recipes are stories about some of the Sanctuary's beloved animals, written by Founder and Director Kathy Stevens.

The cookbook contains 125 savory and sweet recipes, including Sanctuary favorites:

Blueberry Praline French Toast Casserole, Buffalo Cauliflower with Bleu Cheese Dressing, Moroccan Vegetable and Chickpea Tagine, Chipotle Sweet Potato Stew with Lime Cashew Cream, Coconut Cream Pie, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles, and many more!

"Compassionate Cuisine proves there is zero sacrifice in switching to a healthy, environmentally conscious, compassionate way of eating because the food is fantastic! These recipes can go head to head with any animal based dish and will win! They're that delicious! An added bonus is learning about all the lives you're sparing and the suffering you're preventing. Bottom line: this book will revolutionize your life!"
