I love the recipes in this cookbook. The Chickpea Dumplings are phenomenal. There is a lot of swear words in the cookbook, if you can over look those you will not be disappointed.

O.k. there is swearing but how many of you have sworn in the kitchen especially when something goes terribly wrong??
Anyway lotsa great recipes and finally a vegan brunch dish that everyone loves-Lentil Gravy with Biscuits. The gravy is a keeper-make up a big batch, freeze some and serve on veggies, potatoes, meatloaf etc. etc.
This cookbook puts the fun back in cooking-enjoy!
Update-Apr 21. After making these comments became aware that there is controversy regrading this cookbook. The white authors have been accused of appropriation in regards to urban African American culture and language. This never occurred to me-live in Canada in a small community on the Fraser River and the only exposure to urban Black culture has been occasionally through the media.
Anyway-if interested look up Thug Kitchen appropriation-there is lots of info.
For me, the recipes and cookbook seem very different now.

One of the funniest and profane cookbooks I have ever read. Haven't been disappointed by a recipe yet!

Yes there is a lot of unnecessary language in the book, but that is their "thing".
The book stemmed from a website.
The recipes are wonderful, all vegetarian and easy to follow, simple ingredients and best of all tasty. I really liked the "Basics" and "Dropping Knowledge" intros to some of the chapters. I borrowed this book and immediately put it on my must list!

There are some pretty good recipes in here but the use of profanity grew tiresome and distracting. I didn't finish browsing, which for me and recipes, is rare. Be yourself but understand that if you want to sell your ideas and your work, know your audience is diminished because of a communication style not appreciated by some.

The swearing doesn't do much for me, but several of the recipes (two of the salsas, baked tofu, and dry cooked tofu) have become staples in our house. And I like the pictures and font. :)
