Thug Kitchen

Hang around here long enough, and you may get sick of hearing about the one subject that dominates my conversations almost as much as CSA: Thug Kitchen.

Thug Kitchen is a series of cookbooks, blog, twitter account, etc. The authors live in LA and declare that their mission is to make eating healthy – and, specifically, vegan – accessible, affordable, easy, and delicious. They do this stunningly well, over and over and over again. I have two out of their three cookbooks, make meals from them regularly, and never have encountered a recipe that I’ve disliked. If you want healthy comfort food, Thug Kitchen is for you.

The one caveat is that you must not be offended by swearing. Their gimmick, from which the “Thug” in their name comes, is that all of the recipes are written in street-sounding language. There are a lot of f-bombs. Being from northeastern New Jersey (think Sopranos – it was shot nearby), I find this hilarious and endearing.

Below are some visuals for why this cookbook is worth every penny. Please, try not to drool on the keyboard.

This is not the last you’ll see of Thug recipes coming from my kitchen. Yum.
