Today I am sharing an awesome cookbook with you guys. Vegan Burgers and Burritos by my friend Sophia DeSantis. You probably already know Sophia from her amazing food blog, Veggies Don’t Bite. I think Sophia’s cookbook can be summed up in one word: FLAVOR. OK, maybe two words: EPIC flavor. Keep reading to get a glimpse inside + enter my giveaway for a book!…
Sophia, the author of Vegan Burgers and Burritos, is one of my favorite people that I have met through my blogging journey. She is an amazing soul filled with energy, fun, joy, compassion and sincerity. Not to mention loads of creativity. I love that both Sophia’s dynamic personality and her talent for creation are featured on the pages of her cookbook.
There are so many things I love about this cookbook, but besides the RECIPES – which I will get to in a moment – I love these little things..
– The dedication page. I have read my fair share of dedication pages over the past ten years and I have to say this one was the only one that I got teary-eyed over. It is a beautiful tribute.
– The titles. I love fun, authentic and/or quirky titles. I love plenty of Sophia’s titles for her recipes and book sections. I think my fave is the “Help! I Screwed it Up! (And Other Resources)” section. Can I get that for life in general please?
– The “Kids” notes. This is such a genius little addition to have in any cookbook! Sophia gives a kid-friendly recipe note for a bunch of recipes.
– The Photos. Sophia did an gorgeous job photographing these recipes. I dare you to browse and not have instantaneous cravings for, well, burgers and burritos.
– The Personality. I love how when I am flipping through these pages I feel like I am hanging out in Sophia’s kitchen while she tells me all about her amazing creations.
Oh and alllll the recipes.
A Whole cookbook of Burgers and Burritos? Yes. Oh yes. You need this book in your life. Fact: burger and burrito recipes are crowd-pleasers. And having a wide variety of ways to serve those lovable and cravable recipes gives a huge boost to your cooking + meal planning game.
Creative Deliciousness. Sophia’s epic creativity and flavor-mingling skills show us that there are SO many flavor and ingredient mash-ups that you can create for veggie burger and burrito recipes. And to top things off, she also shows us a truly mesmerizing array of vegan sauces. OMG these sauce recipes are insane. Oh, and there are also dessert recipes. Because, dessert.
So basically, this cookbook is so much more than your brain can even imagine. Don’t worry though because Sophia has imagined all the awesomeness for you.

Flipping through the pages in Sophia’s creative book actually reminded me a lot of my smoothie book. I remember how challenging it was to dream up 365 different smoothie recipes. But somehow my imagination just danced around a bit and I blended my way to recipe creativity. It was FUN. So fun. But we don’t all always have time to dream up (and tirelessly test!) the bits and pieces of those fun, creative recipes – so niche recipe books do it for us.
So with that, I offer up a giveaway for you guys!…
