On Our Shelves Now
INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
An all-new collection of more than 120 recipes that are so delicious and easy to make, you might forget they’re vegan, from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Deceptively Delicious, Double Delicious, The Can’t Cook Book, and Food Swings.
Jessica Seinfeld isn’t a committed vegan. Her husband and her children aren’t, either. Instead of convincing you to become vegan or shaming you for eating meat, she simply wants to show you how easy it is to be a vegan, at times, by cooking flavorful, affordable, and robust plant-based meals whenever you want—whether that’s every day, once a week, or just once in a while.
With her reassuring and accessible style, Jessica shows you step-by-step recipes for sweet and savory breakfasts, comforting and healthy meals for lunch and dinner, delicious snacks that can be whipped together quickly, and essential sauces and dressings—all tailored to home cooks. She also demonstrates how to create a basic vegan pantry filled with the essential items to keep in stock, explains what kitchen equipment you’ll want to have on hand, gives sample menus for combining recipes, and tells relatable stories from her adventures in vegan cooking with her family.
Simple, affordable, and comforting, and infused with Jessica’s “encouraging attitude” (Publishers Weekly), Vegan, at Times is the perfect gateway to a healthier and more balanced you.

"Seinfeld settled on being vegan, at times—eating mostly vegan and allowing herself nonvegan food occasionally, but more importantly without shame or judgment. And that’s what this book is so good at—it’s a gentle invitation to try something new, without the condition that you have to do it perfectly."
“Vegan, at Times is the perfect book for anyone who wants to try eating vegan or plant-based but not commit to going all the way, every day.”
". . . a collection of easy and approachable recipes for anyone who grew up with a protein-and-starches kind of diet as the norm. Seinfeld and her collaborator, Sara Quessenberry, purposefully shopped at mass grocers like Walmart and Target to ensure that all ingredients are easily found, and the recipes make note where store-bought swaps—jarred salsa instead of homemade pico de gallo, for example—are possible."
"Jessica shares how to incorporate plant-based eating into one’s life without yet another set of rules, anxiety-producing fear of failure, or family drama. Food dogma is not her jam . . . Vegan, at Times is filled with practical recipes that have become Jessica’s trademark, and ingredients that won’t send you running to different specialty grocery stores."
"Jessica Seinfeld whips up invigorating and approachable recipes loaded with easy-to-find ingredients, so you can add them to your routine whether it’s 'every day or every so often.' More plants, please!"
". . . a judgement-free book with practical recipes that avoid dairy and meat . . . [that] can be prepared from ingredients at any store and made in 30 minutes or so."
