American Vegan Kitchen Giveaway!

Yep, that's right. I'm giving away two copies of Tamasin Noyes' awesome vegan comfort food cookbook American Vegan Kitchen.

Two reasons: 1) Noyes' debut book is filled with lip-smacking recipes for comfort food so comfy, it'll make you want to change into your PJs and settle into your ratty old sofa with a soft cat on your lap and steaming bowl of vegan eats in your hands. And 2) Because my daddy is the best dad a girl could ever ask for!

You see, my dad read my gushing reviews of Tami's book (from Vegan Appetite) a few weeks ago on this blog. Then he called me to ask if I'd like to give away a couple of copies if he ordered them from Amazon. Um, do vegans eat tofu? Of course I would! So daddy ordered a few copies, and I'm giving them away to two lucky random commenters on this post.

But first, I want to show y'all another reason why you need Tami's book. Just look at this hearty Seitan Goulash with Kraut over Parsleyed Noodles:

Like many recipes in Tami's book, this one starts with a base of homemade savory seitan cutlets. Sure, it's a little time-consuming to make your own seitan, but I promise it's more than worth it. I won't even buy that pre-packaged seitan anymore. Tami's seitan-makin' method is quite different from my own, in that hers involves browning the dough in a skillet and then roasting it in the oven. I typically use the boil-down-in-broth method. Now I love it prepared both ways, and I'm glad to be introduced to another method for making seitan.

The rest of the goulash combines tangy sauerkraut, diced tomatoes, carrots, and mushrooms. And the most important ingredient — beer (I used Sam Adams Boston Lager). The goulash is served atop simple whole wheat noodles adorned with parsley, soy margarine, and a wee bit of salt. A little dab of Tofutti sour cream on top, and you've got yourself one helluva meal. I ate the leftovers from last night's dinner tonight, and the hoppy beer flavor is even better the next day.

You can see this recipe and loads of other diner-style favorites (like Tempeh Stroganoff-Stuffed Potatoes, Sweet Garlicky Ribs, and Apple Butterscotch Pie) if you win American Vegan Kitchen.

Here's what you've gotta do: At the end of this post, leave me a comment letting me know your favorite comfort food. Be sure to include an email address if you don't have a blog that I can track you down on.

For extra entries, link to this contest on Facebook, and leave me an additional comment to let me know. Same thing goes for Twitter. Also, if you have a blog, mention and link back to this contest on your blog, and let me know in an additional comment. That means each person can have a maximum of four entries!

Also, sorry to all of my international friends, but I'll have to restrict the contest to U.S. residents only since my dad will be handling the shipping. Good luck! I'll leave the contest open until Thursday at 10 a.m. CST.

Your daddy is so awesome! What a generous man!

I think my favorite comfort food is probably toasted Ezekiel bread with mustard on top (in lieu of something sweet, like jam). I know it's kind of odd, but I love it. :)

Vegyogini said...

I tweeted, too!

Carolina said...

My partner makes the world's best spaghetti sauce, and together with al dente pasta and garlic bread, it's a total over-carb comfort scene. We have salad, too, but hey, it's the pasta! Thanks for doing this give-away.

Jane said...

Awww, your Dad is so sweet. I've been eyeing up this book, so even if I don't win, I think I will be ordering it for myself.

Right now my favourite super-quick-and-easy comfort food is a one-pot soup/stew hybrid of whatever veggies I have in the house with some miso paste added at the end (tastes so good and makes it seem fancier than just normal soup). It works great with chopped-up potatoes or rice, lots of veg, chunks of tofu etc etc!

Amy said...

I have to agree with the other poster and say spaghetti with garlic bread. My partner makes a pretty mean tempeh shepherds pie, too!

radioactivegan said...

Mac and Cheese is my favorite! absolutely!

ali said...

my favorite comfort food is grilled cheese with tomato basil soup. Until recently, I haven't had a grilled cheese in a long while, well, because of the cheese part! But the Whole Foods near me recently started carrying Daiya vegan cheese and decided to try it out in grilled cheese form - it was DELICIOUS!

sgcorrie said...

My all time favorite comfort food is mashed potatoes. My grandfather and I would get into fistfights over the leftover mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving....

Ok, so the fistfights aren't true, but I can't say it wouldn't happen.

Veg is Sexy said...

Aww thanks Papa Crunk!

I think it's become obvious to anyone who reads Veg is Sexy that my favorite comfort food is mac and cheeze.

miriam said...

hmm, i think that my favorite comfort food might be pasta with mashed potato sauce. that's something i only make when i need comforting.

oh, and chocolate. duh.
aaand practically anything that involves fresh peaches!


miiriiam @ riseup . net

Kym said...

Aww..your dad is a sweetheart. Favorite comfort food? Tough call. as far as raodside diner comfort food I'd totally go for veganized breakfast platter or some spicy mac 'n' "cheese" with faux bacon and peppers, especially if it's got an old school crumbly topping. Oh yeah, I totally linked on my new twitter account! http://twitter.com/Veganpancake

Pinjing said...

Your Dad is the sweetest! Please tell him thank you for his generosity.

It may not be what most people think of "comfort food", but the most comforting meal to me is the avocado-cucumber sushi roll from a local sushi place. Or a meal of rice and beans with chips and salsa.

GMC said...

My favorite comfort food is PIE! I love strawberry, pecan, pumpkin...mm drooling! :)**

Deborah B said...

Ok, I'm reading in Canada so I know I can't win that awesome cookbook, but I have to confess, my favourite comfort food is a big bowl of oatmeal, soymilk & blackstrap molasses.

Anonymous said...

It's a tie between peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on toasted wheat bread. Or mashed potatoes!! This book looks rad.

tamara said...

Oooh neat! I think my favorite comfort food is mashed potato pie... Mashed potatoes with lotsa earth balance and peas baked in a pie crust with a little bit of nutritional yeast on top. (With gravy is best!) Soo good.

Jan Scholl said...

When I am sick, I want mashed potatoes with the skins still on them. When I am depressed, mashed potatoes with raw garlic in them. When I am starving and only have 20 minutes to cook and serve and clean up, mashed potatoes (that I have frozen from the above two) will tide me over. BTW-If you pick me, I already have the book. In fact I bought two copies because I am giving one to a woman who insists she is a vegetarian but eats chicken. I am gonna send her the book with some premade seitan all spiced up. So pick someone else for the freebie. Sadly, I know no one who cooks anything but warmed up fast food.

HeyitsBeth said...

Coolest dad ever!

My favorite comfort food is definitely pb&js. They're the perfect snack!

BHooke said...

That's so sweet of you dad.

My favorite comfort food is baked potatoes, skin and all.

Come on? Comfort food is synonymous with pizza 100%.

Erin said...

Thank you to you and your dad for the giveaway, Bianca! My comfort food is biscuits and gravy, hands down. Or "graby" as we say in my house.

Erin said...

And I linked back to the contest on my blog, edayem.wordpress.com. Thanks again!

Jaime said...

Usually something potato-based, like French fries, or homemade colcannon.

Sarah said...

This is an awesome giveaway! My favorite comfort food is definitely mashed potatoes with Earth Balance. so yummy! I would love to have this cookbook to make even more comfort food recipes!

Annie said...

Yay! I want that book!:)

My favorite comfort food has to be vegan enchiladas...I can eat a bunch of them in one sitting and feel all good and fuzzy inside hehehe.

Comfort food the last few years has been mashed potatoes, cucumber salad w/dill, and coleslaw on the side. Yum. Takes me back to another lifetime....

annab said...

My favorite comfortfood is a huge bowl of mashpotatoes with vegan butter. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMmmm. now I want some. :(

My favorite comfort dessert.. bread pudding. yumm.

birdfeed said...

I like sweets, so my favorite is a big bowl of cereal with vanilla soymilk. It always cheers me up.

Lauren said...

Shepherd's pie!

Dianne said...

Mashed potatoes, definitely.

Thanks so much to you and your dad for having this giveaway!

Dianne said...

Danielle said...

Thanks for introducing me to AVK cookbook, plus a chance to win! I'm intrigued by your description of the seitan-makin' process. :)

Keri - I Eat Trees said...

Aww, your dad is the sweetest!!

My favorite comfort foods are peanut butter, iced tea, and mashed potatoes... not all in one bowl. :P They're all things my grandma used to give me when I didn't feel well, so I'm sure that has something to do with it.

Danielle said...

I posted your giveaway on Facebook.

Lauren said...

That's so awesome of your dad!

My favorite comfort food are these rolls my mom makes. I could just eat and eat them.

zakurotodokuro said...

Biscuits and Gravy for sure!

Margrizabeth said...

Thanks to Daddy Crunk!

Lately we're under a fair amount of stress, and we're constantly making a new favorite, what we call "vegan french bread pizza": basically whole wheat french bread hollowed out, filled with sauteed tempeh-kale-mushroom in tomato sauce, topped with FYH mozzarella and garlic salt, and toasted/broiled in the oven till melty and crusty. So good.

H. said...

Hands down, mashed potatoes AND gravy. It was in my pregan days and it still is in my vegan days. I will fight over leftovers no doubt.

H. said...

I linked to your contest on my Facebook wall. :-)

*Lesli* said...

my favorite comfort food is mac n cheese, hands down. :)

Marla said...

Thanks for the contest! I love grilled cheese sandwiches, but a close second would be nut butter. I think you can transform just about anything--carrots, celery, bananas--into comfort food by slathering it with nut butter.

Robin said...

My favorite comfort food is still a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It's just the kind of thing I'll never outgrow.

betsybrugil said...

My favorite comfort food has to be mashed potatoes with Punk Rock Chickpea Gravy from Vegan with a Vengeance. Love it!

Olivia said...

Definitely a tie between pizza with Daiya and mushrooms, or mashed potatoes with sour cream and chives.

This is an awesome giveaway and really nice of your dad!

Katy said...

My favorite would have to be garlic bread with extra tomato sauce for dipping. I'm new to your blog, and I loove it! Thanks for the vegan inspiration!

Katy said...

I blogged too!

Ava Cado said...

Peanut butter quesadilla! A whole wheat tortilla or lavash spread with organic creamy peanut butter, strawberry jam and mashed banana that's been grilled until it's all crispy and warm. MMMMMMM! With a big glass of vanilla almond milk it's soooo good!

Leinana Two Moons said...

I have two favorite comfort foods - one is buttery (Earth Balance) mashed potatoes and gravy, and the other is fried rice with Sriracha sauce. A big bowl of either one makes me feel happy!

Molly G said...

Mmmmmm. Vegan mac and cheese. I don't have one recipe I use exclusively. That way, every time I see a new recipe it gives me an excuse to make it!

Buddhasbrewing said...

This book is totally #1 on my birthday wish list.

I'm torn between lentil loaf and chik'n fried vegan steaks, both are my wife's recipes and, honestly, meatloaf and chicken fried steak were two of my favorites in my pre-gan days.

I love your blog, Bianca. Honestly it's the only vegan blog that I read every entry.

I'll tweet and facebook it tonite.

Meg said...

The oatmeal-raisin cookies from Veganomicon have gotten my girlfriends and I through many troubled times.

Props to Papa Crunk!

Kristin said...

mashed potatoes here. if it's a fancy occasion, they can be wasabi mashed potatoes. MMMMMMMMMMMMM.

yay crunk Dad!!! thank you!!

Veg-In-Training said...

Can I adopt your dad?

Traditionally grilled cheeze was my comfort food of choice (along with some crispy tender fries of course). The last couple of years I have become a popcorn addict.

A said...

Favorite comfort food: Toast with almond butter and bananas, and a cup of coffee to go with it.

Jennifer M. said...

Your dad rocks!
My favorite comfort food is "Mac N Nooch" followed by Chocolate Tofu Mousse Pie and pretty much anything with peanut butter in it.
I'd LOVE to win this book!!

radioactivegan said...

Wow, that was so cool of your dad to do that!
It would be hard for me to pick one comfort food. I was raised by a southern farmer's daughter. But I love homemade mac 'n cheese(now veganized), veggie "ribs", and grits!

Oooooh, I hope I win!!

The Kuntrageous Vegan said...

I love a simple mac 'n cheeze; made with cashew butter, parma and fresh herbs.

Lynder said...

that goulash looks mouth watering. i am literally drowing in a sea of drool.

Chrissy said...

All food is comfort in my book! My favorites, though, would have to be homefries, baked tofu, and cheezy sauce (with lots and lots of nooch.)

Chrissy said...

Oh, and I tweeted it! http://twitter.com/evilolive/status/12464295589

Lynder said...

oh! my fav comfort food is beets and potatoes with olive oil and lemon juice. mmm

Amy said...

My favorite comfort food is cinnamon toast. Nothing makes me feel more secure and happy than curling up on the couch with my dogs, munching on cinnamon toast fresh out of the oven. :)

Erin said...

Wow, your dad is the BEST!

My faves are definitely pancakes and mac 'n cheese.

Julie said...

Mac and cheese still is a favorite. And grilled cheese. (All vegan, of course.) It's not something I eat often, but sometimes it really hits the spot.

pythoness {at} gmail {dot} com

Mara said...

Ok, my favorite comfort food is so simple and unhealthy that it's embarrassing -- warm, soft, fresh-out-of-the-oven white bread with Smart Balance vegan margarine. =\ I know. Totally lame, but I can't get enough of it!!

Valerie said...

I posted links on both my twitter and facebook pages!

zel(da) said...

My favorite comfort food is chocolate chip cookies with tea and coconut milk.

deborah said...

anything with pasta and cheese is the way to my heart! i have been experimenting for the last 9mo though in an effort to completely cut cheese out so this book would go well used in our household. what a great giveaway!

Deadwillwalk said...

Wow your dad is so sweet! :D

My fave comfort food is probably oven baked french fries with ketchup. lol. :P

VixedVegans said...

My favorite comfort food is definitely mac n'cheese! I finally created my own homemade recipe that is quick, easy and delicious.

JennieLynn said...

While I love to experiment with all kinds of food, nothing beats a hot bowl of Malt-o-meal for ultimate comfort. PS-what a great dad you have!

Sheridanna said...

Ooh! Ooh! I wanna win! Pick me! Pick me, random number picker! hah! Umm....favorite comfort food would have to be noodle dishes of any variety. If it's veggie and atop a bed of noodles, I'm there!

bookworm bri said...

Vegan Alfredo with faux chicken, broccoli, mushrooms and onions mmmmmmmmm i'm drooling just thinking about it

My favorite comfort food is slow-cooker beans and brown rice. I feel comforted knowing that this costs only a few pennies!

Flyswatter said...

Oh yeah, I also posted to Facebook.

Jen said...

My favorite comfort food is oatmeal, hands down. I grew up eating it for breakfast everyday, and even as an adult, it's hard to go a day without consuming cooked oats. I'll eat oatmeal plain, and often I'll spruce my bowl up with nut butter or fruits.

I think my favorite comfort food would have to be peanut butter and jelly with iced tea (a must) or scrambled tofu because of the tasty ease factor.

Sophia Cacciola said...

want! :)

erika said...

My comfort food is oatmeal with peanut butter and jelly. So good! Another one is roasted sweet potatoes with garam masala. And I eat those every day. :)

But I have to admit, that recipe sounds so amazingly good that it could be a contender.

amandasdomestic said...

Seriously, coolest daddy-o ever! Comfort food always entails some mashed potatoes, anything else is just extra! Would love to try out some of these recipes, thanks for the giveaway!

Mac & Cheeze is definitely my favorite. Carby, creamy goodness. Followed, oddly, by toast and EB. Two different kinds of comfort food though!

Hayley said...

Your dad is awesome! Hmm... I love comfort food, so it's hard to choose. Probably a toss up between mac 'n cheez or mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy.

disco said...

I'm definitely ordering this book even if i don't win--looks amazing!

My fav comfort food is mashed potatoes swimming in gravy...yummm. Actually, it is really just the gravy (I swear I would just drink it if it were socially acceptable), but you need a vehicle to get it in your tummy, and mashed potatoes are really good too :-)

Courtney

bespatter said...

To me, comfort food is thick and hearty, like stew, and I absolutely love my Great Northern bean and kale stew. Served up with some garlic croutons and green onions it's freaking amazing!

I'm also fond of good ol' Midwestern apple crisp and (r)ice cream. :)

Jessica said...

And ... I linked to you on my blog. I have referred to you more than once, I'll admit it.

My favorite comfort food... Hmmm... I'm a big fan of peanut butter on toast. Simple, but yummy!

Your dad is really sweet for offering such a great giveaway!

Love your blog and yes, we should all have a dad like yours.

Favorite comfort food hands down, mashed potato enchiladas. Mmmm mmm.

My favorite comfort food is grilled "cheese" served with french fries and lots of ketchup. Pizza is a close second though!

Lou said...

My favorite comfort food is Spicy Tortilla Soup with Avocado and Seitan. Drool!

gina said...

sweet potato casserole! southern style, with pecans. hands down!

Mirkat said...

Comfort food: split a banana lengthwise, make a sandwich with peanut butter and a ripped-up date. So much yum. :)

megs said...

Very favorite: big ol' gooey grilled (non)cheese.

A close second, when no good uncheese is at hand: just a big thick slice of fluffy bread smeared with butter. So terrible for the body. So good for the soul.

Vegan comfort food... I'd have to say pizza. Follow Your Heart is fab and my non-vegan husband requests non-dairy pizzas often. Works for me!

Thanks Papa Crunk!!

I think my favorite comfort food would have to be Indian Food, particularly chana masala with a piece of roti for dipping, gets me everytime!

Excellent giveaway, I have only been hearing good things about this book. I have wanted a copy ever since you first posted about it. The ultimate comfort food for me is pizza, but I also find dessert (too) comforting. Let's just say that since I gave up dairy I have taken up a lot more baking at home! :)

Thank you to you and your dad! my favorite comfort food is a tie between mashed potatoes and spud puppies covered in hot sauce

Rachel H said...

This book sounds really good! For favorite comfort food, I'd say pizza and ice cream (with coconut milk!).

Maida said...

Your dad is awesome! What a great idea for a giveaway.

My favorite comfort food is probably soup. I haven't been cooking much lately, but soup is so easy to make and it's not any more effort to make a ton so that you have leftovers for days and days. I guess it's my recent laziness that makes me enjoy soup so much. :)
