The Gluten-Free Vegan by Susan O’Brien

150 Delicous Gluten-Free, Animal-Free Recipes

My husband bought this book for me when I came to the conclusion that I was gluten intolerant to make family meals easier for me.  This book is packed with tasty recipes including a lot of child-friendly options.  The recipe spans all areas including appetizers, soups, salads, vegetables and sides, main dishes, breakfasts, breads, muffins, scones, pies, desserts, beverages and sauces. The book includes a helpful guide to becoming gluten-free, gluten-free alternatives, sugar alternatives and other topics such as veganism, organic foods and GMO foods.


Ideal cookbook for many health conditions: The Gluten-Free Vegan is a groundbreaking cookbook, combining both special diets for healthier, allergy-free eating. Millions of Americans have health conditions like celiac disease, fibromyalgia, or food allergies that require a gluten- and/or dairy-restricted diet.
