Kitchen Divided

Vegan Dishes for Semi-Vegan Households

Dining together is a great way to foster a relationship, but many vegans find themselves in conflict with partners, family members, or friends who don t share their dietary persuasion. If those vegans are lucky, their loved ones will be happy to share meatless dishes and won’t mind postponing a steak or chicken dinner until they eat out. More often than not, however, both vegans and meat eaters are forced to accommodate each other in the confines of the same kitchen. The emotions stirred by their contrary diets can heat that kitchen to the boiling point.

Enter cookbook author, fitness trainer, and kitchen referee Ellen Jaffe Jones. With an abundance of tips for dealing with the many common food fights that arise in such living arrangements, Ellen dishes up sage advice for how to restore harmony, peace, and joy in divergent food relationships. Her mouthwatering recipes include delicious vegan alternatives to conventional dishes typically based on meat or dairy products. This is hearty fare even a diehard carnivore will love. Ellen also provides recipes for versatile meatless main dishes that nonvegan diners can add meat to or enjoy as side dishes.

Ellen offers anecdotes and coping ideas gleaned from her cooking classes and social media groups, and from other vegans who have spent years living in a kitchen divided. She demonstrates that it’s not only possible to survive but thrive when a challenging living arrangements puts different eaters at odds.
