Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook: Eat Like You Give a F*ck (Thug Kitchen Cookbooks)

#1 New York Times Bestseller

Thug Kitchen started their wildly popular web site to inspire people to eat some Goddamn vegetables and adopt a healthier lifestyle. Beloved by Gwyneth Paltrow (“This might be my favorite thing ever”) and named Saveur‘s Best New Food blog of 2013–with half a million Facebook fans and counting–Thug Kitchen wants to show everyone how to take charge of their plates and cook up some real f*cking food.
Yeah, plenty of blogs and cookbooks preach about how to eat more kale, why ginger fights inflammation, and how to cook with microgreens and nettles. But they are dull or pretentious as hell–and most people can’t afford the hype.
Thug Kitchen lives in the real world. In their first cookbook, they’re throwing down more than 100 vegan recipes for their best-loved meals, snacks, and sides for beginning cooks to home chefs. (Roasted Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos? Pumpkin Chili? Grilled Peach Salsa? Believe that sh*t.) Plus they’re going to arm you with all the info and techniques you need to shop on a budget and go and kick a bunch of ass on your own.
This book is an invitation to everyone who wants to do better to elevate their kitchen game. No more ketchup and pizza counting as vegetables. No more drive-thru lines. No more avoiding the produce corner of the supermarket. Sh*t is about to get real.

    The food tastes good! A lot of it has similar seasoning so meals do start to taste the same, quickly. A person does have to buy a few specialty ingredients. My complaint is that this is not a cookbook in the purest sense. There are no easy to turn flaps (I used tape to quickly turn to different sections) and also no time chart for making a meal. Often I would settle upon a dish only to find that marinating took 8-24 hours when a person reads the fine print. The expletives are hilarious.

    I’ll start by saying, the food in this book is amazing. Out-of-this-world good. I live in Portland, the mecca of all things vegan, and my non-vegan friends have been clawing at my door to eat these recipes instead of eating out. It is some hearty, delicious stuff.

    That being said, I feel like they kind of sell it as a beginner’s cookbook, and that it is not. The intro says ‘Cooking vegetables takes a minute and a little finesse, but it’s not &%#* rocket science.’ But these recipes are complicated! They do include a lot of instructions. And big bonus points for the fact that you don’t need a bunch of esoteric ingredients and fancy kitchen gadgets. Still, I haven’t made an entrée yet that took under an hour. They have you making your own sauce and everything from scratch. For me, this is not weeknight cooking. And it might be challenging for new cooks to be juggling a sauce, a sauté and steaming veggies all at once. I wish they had prep and cook times listed for recipes, but I have to read the recipe and make an educated guess.

    Anyway, those are just things to be aware of. The food is delicious, the tone is funny, and I have been talking it up to my friends. So, despite the drawbacks, I’m still giving it five @&%ing stars. 🙂
