Oh hey its been 6 months since my Second book Release!!! Don’t have a copy yet? Get it on Amazon, and other retailers all over the World(International links)!

- 7 Meal Chapters, 1 on Brunch and 1 Dessert.
- 140+ Recipes. Many with variations to use different sauce or ingredient to make a new dish.
- 132 Gluten-free or Option Recipes.
- 124 Soy-free or option Recipes.

Lets go over the chapters, my faves and the TOC, Tips distributed in between, and Giveaway at the End of the post. As with my first book 40% of my earning gets donated to various Charities listed in the book.
Chapter 1 Peanut Butter & Coconut
When in a jiffy, I always make some PB sauce dishes. My faves are the Lentils in PB Sauce(of course!), Green curry fried rice (so vibrant!), Massaman Curry! Can’t eat peanuts, no worries, use my Peanut-free & Nutfree Peanut Sauce from the chapter. Options for Everyone!
Chapter 2 Sweet and Sour
Crispy Orange Cauliflower, Sweet and sour Tofu (pan fried with a few tsp of oil), Manchurian noodles, kung pao lentils, Teriyaki Lentil Balls oh yeah! So many Takeout meals in this chapter but without the deep frying. Refreshing and Delicious!
- Most of the sauces are freezer friendly, so make ahead to reduce active time.
- Many recipes use veggies that you can always chop ahead and store. I chop up some onion, ginger, garlic, chili, peppers over the weekend as they are usually the base component in many Indian and other recipes.
- Premake or use premade ingredients like pizza sauce, red curry paste, pizza dough etc
- Read the recipe once entirely before proceeding. Once you cook a few recipes from the book, the flow gets easier and reduces the prep and active times.
- a bit of planning goes a long way!
Chapter 3 Masala & Saag
I mean, literally everything is a fave from this chapter. I will always be partial to Indian food and the next fave is Ethiopian. Lentil balls with Masala sauce and Ethiopian Jackfruit and lentil wot are a stand out. The curried Noodles are super quick fave. All of the sauces are freezer friendly. Always have masala sauces in the fridge!
Love Indian Food? Get my First book too!
Chapter 4 Buffalo and Firecracker
Hot Stuff! You can adjust the heat with using less of the hot sauce. The buffalo chickpea Pizza and firecracker Crispy Cauliflower, oh yeah! Buffalo anything with the book’s popular from scratch vegan ranch, perfect!.
Get the book on Amazon, and other retailers all over the World! As with my first book 40% of my earning gets donated to various Charities listed in the book.
If you have the print book, you can get the kindle version for your kindle, computer, phone etc for just 2.99! Applies to both books. thats 90% Off!🧡
Chapter 5 Burgers, Sandwiches, Loafs
The whopper Pecan Mushroom lentil burgers(so much flavor), Brown Chickpea jackfruit burgers (so hearty), Chickpea BBQ loaf, and the seed-full Quinoa bbq patties (no Beans). Mmmm.. Most patties can be made gluten-free, serve with gluten-free bread or wraps. The patties can be made into loafs and the loafs can be made into patties!
Chapter 6 Bowls and Hands
Jalapeno popper dip Wraps, Chickpea Veggie stew with baharat (so good), The buddha bowl with Nacho spiced Sweet potatoes(hell yeah!), Crispy Smoky Lentils with creamy greens bowl(so addictive). So much texture and Flavor!
Chapter 7 Deep Dishing
Are you ready for a gooey cheesy Deep deep dish pizza? With from scratch Mozzarella and your own pizza sauce (or use premade), Spinach Alfredo Pizza or make a sandwich melt!, Smoky Mac bake, Spinach artichoke Lasagna (all have nut-free options!). Once you have some of the components ready, the pizzas and bakes come together fairly quickly.
Chapter 8 Breakfast for Lunch
Frittatas (no tofu!), Chickpea chilaquiles, Samosa stuffed french toast is where its at. This chapter is all savory brunches. Some sweet options are in the Dessert Chapter.
Many of the recipes are also very kid friendly as reported by all of you who have been cooking from the book. Adjust the heat as needed by reducing cayenne, black pepper, hot sauce and green chilies. Spices and herbs can change in flavor as they age, add more or less to preference when you taste.
Chapter 9 Sweet Note
Almond Butter Cheesecake Brownies, Blondies, Cupcakes, Tiramisu Fudge Bars! yuhum. And for a lighter fare, try the Lemon Chia Pudding, Seedy Chocolate Snack Bars!
Chapter 10 is some basics
The 20 min pizza dough is super quick. The Gluten-free pizza dough works out wonderfully as well. Can’t find good gluten-free tortillas or wraps? make the soft pliable gluten-free flatbread from this chapter.

The Makhani Sauce from the Gobi Musallam recipe, brought a new warmth into our home. It changed my kitchen forever. I couldn’t be more thankful for this shared space full of love for food and passion. Thank you for sharing your recipes and carrying on tradition. What a beautiful thought, that this knowledge will be passed on endlessly through time.
I’ve loved so many recipes from your first cookbook, but my favorite I made recently is Vegetable Jalfrezi—so smoky and delicious.
The kings pao lentils are my favorite lentil recipe!!
I love your recipes! I’ve made the lasagna soup several times, everyone who tries it loves it. And we just st had the lentils and veggies in peanut sauce last night ( and also today’s lunch. And dinner.) Everything I’ve tried has so much flavor. 😁
Love the marble pumpkin chocolate loaf and I love that Richa offers so many tips for making recipes nut-free, gluten-free, etc. It makes cooking allergy friendly meals for my family much easier 😁
❤The Whopper mushroom pecan lentil burgers! 😊
Mercedes D. Bujans
Your sweet potato burgers are the best, Richa. Veggie burgers are my favorites & every burger/veggie patty recipe on your blog is delicious! Congrats on that anniversary !
A very impressive table of contents, I have your Indian Kitchen book (and have bought a couple of copies for Friends who have enjoyed the meals I have prepared from it), it gets used frequently.
This book is one I will have to pick up, the Crispy Sweet and Sour Tofu sounds very tasty, and a perfect dish for company, (or if I am not in a sharing mood – then just for me..)
This book looks amazing!
I really loved the Palak Tofu Paneer recipe. It’s quick and easy and truly delicious. And I am looking forward to making the Mushroom Matar Masala soon.
I’d love a copy! I live in Germany. We recently tried the vegan lemon cookies with chia seeds and they were so addicting! My kids loved them too and next time we will definitely have to make a double batch! Thank you!
I just discovered your blog so I have not had a chance to make any of your recipes but I would LOVE to try the desserts in your cookbook – especially anything with chocolate and peanut butter 🙂
I LOVED your GOBI MUSALLAM (from the blog)!!! I don’t have the cookbook yet, but everything in this post looks delish 🙂
If one was to ask me for my favorite recipe of yours, I could not answer. You are truly an inspiration and help guiding me to creating gourmet dishes. Cooking is an art, a joy, a relaxation and you have captured that with each and every dish you create.
I make your Peanut Butter Sweet Potato Curry, Cauliflower Kofta Balls and am moving on to Butter Tofu Paneer this week.
There are so many dishes to name I have made multiple times. I now have a love of garam masala and always use more than stated .
Happy Anniversary and thank you for sharing with all of us, your amazing gift and incorporating our life style in your creations!!!!!!
I want to try making the Firecracker Jackfruit Sandwiches from the book. It sounds intriguing.
they are so good!
The carrot halwa from Vegan Richa’s Indian Kitchen is TO DIE FOR!!!! Everything I’ve made from that book is amazingly delicious. And the avocado naan– wow!!!!! It was so good I couldn’t believe I actually made it. All of your recipes are so great, I’d love to try the ones in Everyday Kitchen!
My favourite recipe is the Almond Butter Cheesecake Brownies. AMAZING!
Awesome blog! And you are a great writer, thanks for sharing!
My favorite recipe from the blog is probably the lentil peanut butter curry. Sooo filling and warming!
But I’ve also made your new soy curl tacos twice in the last week, so that’s a second favorite!
I’ve just come across your website and I’m already in love. Great and comprehensive. I made of of your curries with chickpeas and peanut butter and the whole family loved it. I’d live ypur book find its way to France. I could spread the vegan good news further in the family and around friends.
Thats awesome! Both my books are available on amazon.fr https://www.amazon.fr/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?__mk_fr_FR=%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91&url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=vegan+richa
I so want to try the broccoli paratha recipe!
Hi Richa!!! I loooved your paneer and just eat it straight! I am making coconut turmeric
Loaf this weekend and can NOT wait to make pumpkin cornbread. But seriously? Chilaquiles and crispy lentils? Ethiopian wot? I am buyin this book no matter what, but winning one would be even cooler! 💚
While every recipe I’ve tried of yours is a hit in my house, I’ll choose the one I’m currently craving haha. My whole family just loves your Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies with Coconut oil! They are super easy to make and come out with that perfect slight crisp on the outside and a melty, chewy inside <3
I have done your Pad Thai and it has been my to go recipe for the past two months. My husband and I are separated because of his work for a year now and before he left, we used to eat Pad Thai and watch sunset together. So I wanted to learn how to make it to bring those memories and your recipe was the winner:) Thank you!
I’m buying your cook book anyway. I’m a vegetarian transitioning to vegan and your recipes have been immensely helpful. I truly enjoyed your mango curry tofu, mocha chocolate cake, and I’ll make anything with okra, eggplant, or lentils!!
awesome! loads of lentils in all books and the blog
I made your vegan mashed potatoes recently and they were fabulous! Can’t wait to run through more of your recipes. 🙂
Vegan Chocolate Cookies with Coconut Oil. We love it. Turns out perfect .
I made your chickpea turmeric peanut butter curry. It was delicious and creamy! Then I did variations with the protein and tried yellow split peas, black eyed peas and red lentils. They all turned out great! The red bell pepper adds a peppery zinginess to the recipe. Say hello to Chewie Puff!
Instant Pot Lasagna Soup – help me finally fall in love with my Instant Pot!
I just tried your Thai fries! I am newly vegan, about four months, and you’re cookbooks have helped mak the transition easier! I just got your Indian cookbook and it is a tasty vault of knowledge! I am so appreciative of your recipes and your help towards charities! I’d love these copies! Keep up the recipes! So good!
Gahhhhhhh! I want this book so bad!!! I LOVE your black pepper tofu and there’s a peanut noodle recipe that we make regularly. Can’t remember if they’re from the blog or when I borrowed the book from the library. Either way….
I loved your 1 Pot Red Lentil Tortilla Soup. This cookbook is on my wishlist!
I love your blog, and I love cookbooks, and I would love to add this to my collection. My blog favorites are almond butter blondies and red lentil frittata.

I’ve turned vegan recently and your recipes are what I always try to recreate and cook. I’d love to get my hands on a copy of your book, since it’s so hard to find vegan recipes here in Bangladesh. So far the ones I’ve tried are – mushroom matar masala, Bombay potatoes and peas, and green curry with chickpeas and eggplant. ❤️ Can’t thank you enough for making my journey towards veganism so satisfying.
This book looks great!!! I’m excited about the giveaway 🙂
I really enjoyed your Gobi Musallum recipe from the blog! It was a hit at our housewarming party 😋
Your African Peanut Lentil Soup is my go-to dinner when I want something warm and comforting. And I make the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars more often than I probably should. I’ve taken both your cookbooks out from the library multiple times but would love to have a copy to call my own!
I bought Everyday Kitchen a few months ago and have enjoyed every recipe I’ve tried, and that’s several. It’s my favourite Vegan cookbook, and I use several constantly. I follow your blog now and have tried recipes from it too. Thank you Richa for introducing me to a new food and especially to your recipes. Your sauces are “awesome”!!!!
I have been in love with your Chickpeas in Turmeric Peanut Butter Curry for awhile and it’s one of my go-tos, but I recently made your Gobi Musallam with Makhani Sauce and it’s amazing!! Every one I’ve made it for has LOVED it. I also love your cashew tofu stirfry for when I need a quick&easy dinner that doesn’t taste like a quick&easy dinner!! Your recipes never disappoint. Thank you!!
Omg, your Mexican pizza!! I discovered it and then thankfully you on Pinterest a few years ago. It is hands down one of my favorite recipes ever! So fun and easy to make too. I won’t like we make it at least every other week! I drool over all of your recipes. I’ve made quite a few and they are all superb. But when you put two of my favorite things together (Mexican food + pizza) you just can’t go wrong!
oh i had forgotten about that pizza, its so good!
Seriously, soo good! 🤤
I usually make the sindh mung dal from your first book; it has become a staple in our house. My picky-eaters love it and I never go wrong with it. The vegetable meatballs that go with the Manchurian sauce are also to die for🤤
Sweet potato latkes this Easter! The book looks amazing!
I love your veggies and lentils in a peanut sauce! So does my fiance…great recipe to sneak in some vegetables 🙂 We would love to try more recipes from your cookbook!
Ethiopian Berbere Chickpea Pizza with Tahini Garlic Dressing
Jia Hui L.
Any chickpea curry 🙂
I have at least 2 favorites:
-mixed veggie pakoras
-orange sauce (for stir-fry)
I also love the chocolate pie and many others. I cook from your book 1-2 times a week. Your recipes are varied and I can always find something that speaks to me any day.
For those that don’t win the book, you should definitely buy it!
Your chai is the best recipe for chai ever! This past holiday season I gave the jars of the chai spice mix as gifts!
The tiramisu fudge bars were so easy to make, and they were to die for!! So delicious that I was trying to lick the fudge from my blender. Love this book! I have a Kindle copy right now and really wish for a physical copy to go with it.
Nut Free Vegan Nacho Cheese Slices is a favorite from your blog!
I think your cookbook looks superb. I thought I’d try to enter and see if I could win a copy. 🙂 I’ve tried the cauliflower fried rice from your blog just two nights ago and often visit your blog for ideas to add to dinners…another recent one I’ve enjoyed is the cajun spice mix and I also made a modification of one of your garbanzo bean topped pizzas! Mmmm! All delicious. Lots of very reliable recipes and great ideas on your site. A source of great enjoyment! Thanks!
The book looks stunning! I’ve been enjoying the nacho cheese slices recently. They’re so good, I usually eat nearly half of them plain!
Most recently, I made the Vegetable Korma and Spiced Fried Rice for a small dinner party and it was delicious! Everyone I served loved it and wanted to know more about the recipe. I’ve been wanting to get your book for ages, so maybe I’ll get lucky and win the giveaway. 😉
