Being Vegan Just Got Easier!
We talk to vegans every day. Aspiring vegans, new vegans, veteran vegans. What do people want to know the most? Where they can find recipes that use easy-to-find ingredients and don’t break the bank. What are we telling everyone? That they must check out The Friendly Vegan e-cookbook by Michelle Cehn and Toni Okamoto.
If those names sound familiar to you, there’s a good reason! Michelle created the World of Vegan website, and Toni founded Plant Based on a Budget. Both are well-known and respected animal rights advocates, and now they’re making being vegan even easier!
Why do we love The Friendly Vegan? With 14 recipes, you have options but aren’t overwhelmed. And you won’t travel from store to store looking for a long list of ingredients. These delicious meals contain ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen! Oh! And the cookbook is only $6 (order now and get 25% off with code ANIMALPLACE)!

Garlicky-Ginger Tofu Triangles
Courtesy of The Friendly Vegan
- 12-oz. extra firm tofu, drained
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 Tbsp soy sauce
- 3 stalks of green onions, thinly sliced, plus more for garnish
- Juice of 1 small lemon
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1-½ tsp fresh ginger, grated
- ¾ cup water
Cut tofu into ½-inch thick triangular slices, place in a large casserole dish, and set aside.
To create the marinade, thoroughly mix together the rest of the ingredients in a medium bowl and pour over the tofu. Allow tofu to sit for a minimum of two hours, or overnight for a richer taste. Flip tofu halfway through marinating time.
Once tofu is marinated, place a large sauté pan over high heat. Add just enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add as many tofu slices as will fit in one layer. Cook until tofu is browned on the bottom: 2-3 minutes. Flip the pieces and brown on the other side, about 2 minutes. Pour in the marinade mixture and cook until tofu darkens slightly, about 45 seconds. Flip tofu and repeat.
Plate, garnish with remaining thinly sliced green onion, and enjoy!
I just ordered this cook book but didn’t see anything pertaining to an actual book that is shipped to my home. will I be getting an actual book?
This is an electronic cookbook, so it will be emailed to you.
Do these recipes primarily revolve around tofu and other soy bean products? I am switching to vegan slowly, but am not a fan,not do I desire, a soy based diet as the alternative.
No, the recipes do not. A couple of the recipes are tofu-based but most have no or very little soy-based products (and could be easily replaced, aside from the Tofu Triangles).
The cookbook has 14 recipes and only 2 use soy (you’ll know them because the recipes have “tofu” right in the titles!).
I have dozens of cookbooks, I don’t need any more but I am buying just so that Animal Place can get their portion of the sales. I love my animals so I’ll do anything to help them. 🙂
Elisa, that is kind of you – thank you! 🙂 -marji
I planned to order multiple copies of this cookbook for Christmas gifts — not realizing that it is in e-mail form & only allows a single purchase … does it even say any of that anywhere? As well, I found no opp to leave a discount code … In any event, of course, I bought it, as, it was a wonderful chance to make another, even if small, difference … especially today … My rescue Turkey “Amy” is especially grateful!!
