A fun and irreverent take on vegan comfort food that's saucy, sweet, sassy, and most definitely deep-fried, from YouTube sensation Lauren Toyota of Hot for Food.

In this bold collection of more than 100 recipes, the world of comfort food and vegan cooking collide as Lauren Toyota shares her favorite recipes and creative ways to make Philly cheesesteak, fried chicken, and mac 'n' cheese, all with simple vegan ingredients. Never one to hold back, Lauren piles plates high with cheese sauce, ranch, bacon, and barbecue sauce, all while sharing personal stories and tips in her engaging and hilarious voice. The result is indulgent, craveworthy food - like Southern Fried Cauliflower, The Best Vegan Ramen, and Raspberry Funfetti Pop Tarts - made for sharing with friends at weeknight dinners, weekend brunches, and beyond.

Editorial Reviews

One of Toronto Star’s “Big Bestseller’s of 2018” 

"[Toyota] deep-fries with abandon and crafts cartoony hand pies festooned with rainbow sprinkles. In contrast to 'clean eating' missives, this is plant-based food with a sense of delight." —The National Post

"Lauren's Hot for Food Vegan Comfort Classics provides so many wildly indulgent comfort food recipes--like Mac & Cheese Onion Rings and Stuffed Crust Pizza--all without a lick of animal products! I'm willing to bet there's something in here to tempt even the biggest plant-based skeptic." —Angela Liddon, New York Times bestselling author of The Oh She Glows Cookbook and Oh She Glows Everyday
"Lauren has absolutely nailed this cookbook. Vegans looking to up their cooking game, or those hoping to try plant-based eating for the first time will be blown away at the creativity of these recipes. From basic sauces and doughs to the most delicious-looking veggie burgers and cakes, this book has it all. The photos and recipes don't disappoint!" —Dana Shultz author of Minimalist Baker's Everyday Cooking
 
"No matter where you fall on the plant-based spectrum, Lauren's creations will immediately appeal to that side of you that craves crispy fried goodness, a sticky-gooey sugar hit, an unabashedly large and delicious serving of carbs, or just something that reminds you of bacon. And we all have that side!" —Laura Wright, Saveur award-winning food blogger and author of The First Mess Cookbook
 
"Lauren is a genius when it comes to plant-based cooking. Who would have ever thought that recipes like French Toast Coffee Cake, Mac & Cheese Onion Rings, and Stuffed Crust Pizza would be in a vegan cookbook! Hot for Food has become my favorite YouTube channel and I'm so excited to cook everything from Lauren's book." —Jeanine Donofrio, creator of the popular blog Love & Lemons and author of The Love & Lemons Cookbook
 
"Lauren is a renegade and hugely responsible for showing the world how incredible plant-based foods can be. Her dedication and out-of-the-box brilliance for vegan cooking is in a league of its own. Good luck eating any other vegan food after you try hot for food recipes, because it just does not get any tastier than this. This is basically a bible. Lauren Toyota is above the law." —Julien Solomita & Jenna Mourey/MARBLES, YouTubers
