Authors Re-Do Traditional Cookbook With Vegan Recipes

By John Ostapkovich

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The name Betty Crocker is synonymous with American comfort food but it’s hardly fare for vegans, until now.

Scarred by watching the lobster-cooking scene in the movie Julie and Julia, Annie and Dan Shannon set out to re-do a traditional cookbook in vegan terms.

They settled on The Betty Crocker Cookbook and the result, Betty Goes Vegan: 500 Classic Recipes for the Modern Family, is out now and they promise there’s no steep learning or shopping curve.

“A lot of these products, the vegan products – like the mock meats and non-dairy cheeses – you can find them at most grocery stores,” says Annie.

“And it’s truly not any more difficult to prepare a vegetarian or vegan version of a dish. Sometimes the preparation is a little different,” explains Dan.

Recipes cover breakfast, lunch, dinner and baked goods. The book is also available in an e-version.
