    CHIA seeds. For sure. :)

  2. Raggedyroad says:

    I am fairly new to the whole vegan thing and have fallen in love with cooking again because of this new lifestyle. In fact my hubby and kids all pulled together to buy me a food processor for Mother’s day to help me along the way. I would have to say beans of all kinds but especially black and pinto. You can do so many wonderful things with them. I love chick peas too.

  3. Theresa says:

    It would most likely be chickpeas – great for falafel and curries. Also adore mushrooms, too – in most anything. Thank you for this great opportunity! I just discovered you through the “Fat Free Vegan” blog. Just liked your page on FB.

  4. Julie says:

    For the moment; chickpeas :)

  5. Julie says:

    Definitely chickpeas!

  6. I need to win this cook book to add to my Dreena collection xxx

  7. K says:

    Hi Dreena!

    I have your first book and it had some great recipes, thank you!
    Do you use a lot of tofu in your second book?

    • Dreena says:

      Thanks K! About the soy, no not that much. There are 200+ recipes and of those about 7 or 8 recipes with tofu and another couple with tempeh. I offer soy-free options for some of those as well. You have an allergy, or just not a big tofu fan?

  8. sara says:

    hummus is my favorite plant-powered food. give me hummus and pita chips and i am a happy girl.

  9. Sandra Smith says:

    Thanks to a friend, I discovered your awesome FB page! I entered by liking your page and my favorite plant powered food is KALE!! I have 2 heads baking in the oven right now making kale chips for snacking on later tonight! :)

  10. Faith says:

    I follow you on Twitter and tweeted about the giveaway!

  11. Faith says:

    My favorite plant-powered food would have to be KALE!!! Also, I liked you on Facebook!

  12. fran snyder says:

    I am very new to the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle. I started a website and wrote a cookbook. I am so loving the results I have been receiving from this lifestyle. Always on the hunt for new recipes and ideas. I got your name and site from the 21 day kickstart with Dr. Barnard. I am so tickled with your site and plan to visit often. I have so many itmes I use on a regular basis. right now i am into sprouts. Trying to recreate a sprouted bread…

    • Dreena says:

      Hi Fran! Well, welcome to my site and also to the wonderful world of eating vegan! (how corny did that sound?, ha) True, though, as there is so much to discover and enjoy. I hope you enjoy tinkering with my recipes, and I hope to bring you plenty of goodies down the road. :) Good luck!

  13. Liz says:

    Like many of the posters before me, I find it SO hard to just pick one, but if you twist my arm and tell me to yell what comes to mind first, I’d have to say broccoli. OR spinach. Anything green.

  14. billiejean says:

    Following on Twitter! TWEET

  15. billiejean says:

    My favorite plant powered food is bananas! I know, it’s boring, but when they get really ripe, they are supper delish in oat bran!

  16. billiejean says:

    Liked you on Facebook!

  17. Chris says:

    I love pears!

  18. Lainey says:

    Fennel! Love it best in potato salad or tomato soup:)

  19. Shylah says:

    I liked you on facebook, and my fave is KALE!

  20. Jessica says:


  21. Laila says:

    Oh… certainly avocado!!! And my 20 month old vegan boy shares my deep deep lover for this awesome fruit. Avocado can be eaten with almost anything, but one of our favourite deserts is avocado smoothy. Yum, yum indeed.

  22. Anna says:

    I can’t get enough of chickpeas, I can eat a whole can straight!

  23. Aileen Sharma says:

    Nutrtional Yeast ! Love love love it ! I like it in LOAF :)))
    Big hug & kiss from the Maritmes !

  24. Jessica says:

    One plant-based ingredient that I have started using since becoming vegan is miso! I love its versatility and unique flavor.

  25. Alan Ward says:


  26. Alan Ward says:

    My favorite plant strong meal is refried beans, spicy guac and fresh baby spinach on whole wheat toast.

  27. Miranda says:

    ahh fresh greens at this time of year! I am also deeply in love with cashews :)

  28. Melissa says:

    GREEN SMOOTHIES – specifically Mango, Bananas & Baby Spinach!!! YUMMY!

  29. ingrid says:


  30. ingrid says:

    sauted greens with other veggies added in and seasonings!!

  31. Maria says:

    Cashews are my favorite!

  32. Sharen says:

    Beans are my favorite. They are so versatile. I buy dry beans, cook them up, and store them in 1/2 cup increments in my freezer. I can substitute 3 packs of the frozen ones (thawed) for a can, puree them and put them in a soup to thicken it up, use thawed ones in casseroles, etc.

  33. jennP says:

    This year, I started loving brussel sprouts…they are delicious!! It’s funny how you grow up not liking something just people that surround you don’t like it! I would have never known brussel sprouts were SO good if I had not tasted them at our office Christmas lunch buffet! MMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmm

  34. Kristen Miklinevich says:

    Tweet :)

  35. Lenamarie says:

    My fav right now of spinach!!! Can’t get enough! My 1 year old loves it too!

  36. Mar says:

    I like you on FB! And my favorite ingredient has to be avocado. So delish with anything and everything.

  37. Kristen Miklinevich says:

    My favorite plant-powered food is nuts. They are natures delicious treats to us, packed with delicious protein and good fat. I eat either cashews or almonds every day. Not to mention the wonderful products that come out of nuts such as almond milk, almond/peanut/cashew butter. Wonderful!

  38. Kristen says:

    It’s so hard to pick one! I love everything that has been mentioned (with the exception of cilantro, which tastes like soap to me). I’ll go with BEETS because they are delicious, healthy, beautiful, and I feel they are an under-loved vegetable. :)

  39. Rebecca says:

    I’d have to say Kale!

  40. Kristy says:

    Tweet. Thank you for making it easier to enter. I tweeted a few days ago but then couldn’t leave a message without registering.

  41. Kristy says:


  42. like_a_vegan says:

    I like all of the above but my favourite is the chick pea! I like you on FB Dreena. I really really do! And I am so excited to get LTEV as soon as it is released again!!!

  43. joanna schupp says:

    i love zucchini! i eat it all the time and in any way that i can.

  44. Lynn Howell says:

    I really have a lot of “favorites” but to be honest my most loved would have to be potatoes!

  45. Melissab says:

    Liked on FB! Chickpeas are a favorite here!

  46. OOooops – meant to comment on THIS page… “Tofu”

  47. Cat says:

    My fav green plant is kale! Its an extremely easy plant to grow and I use it daily!

  48. Mary says:

    I love avocado, beans, kale, onions and Garlic!!!

  49. Sara S. says:

    I am into quinoa, that my girls also love and I find myself adding black beans to everything. But my newest thing is Hemp Seeds, I just discovered this recently and I am trying to use in more meals and treats.

  50. Kim Bryant says:

    Kale & my morning green smoothies.

  51. Fiona says:

    Since becoming vegan a year ago, I’ve re-discovered foods I ate for a short time when my family went macrobiotic to support my father who had lung cancer. Sadly, his cancer was aggressive he died within a short period of time. But for six months I ate foods I’d never had – seaweed, millet, seitan, tofu, tempeh, miso…and others. Those flavours are now so much more – they carry a memory, a sad one maybe, but as I was young when my father died, any memory I have of him is precious. so, these are my power foods (with the exception of tempeh which I still can’t develop a taste for).

  52. Gayle says:

    Anything green and leafy–kale, collards, spinach.

  53. I love chickpeas in almost everything :)

  54. Gabriela says:

    I’m a big fan! My favourite ingredient these days is shelled hemp seeds, which I discovered thanks to your amazing spicoli burgers. They’re a a constant in our weekly meals!

  55. Kathy Calumpong says:

    My favorite plant based food changes all the time but this week I am loving pea shoots.

  56. Natalie says:


  57. Roasted chickpeas or homemade kale chips – the oven is my best friend :)

  58. Natalie says:

    So hard to choose – beans, bananas, nuts: such versitle ingredients!

  59. Randi says:

    Kale!!!! :)

  60. veganlinda says:

    Oh and my favorite plant-powered ingredient right now is beets.

  61. Chickpeas! Hummus is my favorite thing in the world and chick pea mash and chick pea anything.

  62. veganlinda says:

    I like you on FB because there is no “love” button.

  63. Kimberly Louis-Jean says:

    Coconut is probably my favorite thing ever. I add it to soaked oats with walnuts, banana, flax seed and almond/coconut milk blend. Delicious!

  64. Karin says:

    My favourite plant powered food is brown rice because you can do almost anything with it. From Asian and Indian meals, to breakfast cereal, to burgers and burritos. It’s the ingredient I use more than any other. I can’t get enough brown rice! :)

  65. Shannon Adele says:

    Peanut butter! It is VERY hard to choose, though!

  66. Val says:

    I’ve already ‘liked’ your FB page ‘ages’ ago :D and follow you on Twitter for a while now as well. I will tweet about your great give-away right now!
    Oh and my favorite vegan super food would be chickpeas and/or lentils!!!

  67. Kelly says:

    How on earth do I choose?! I’ll be boring and go with kale. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  68. Randi says:

    My favourite is kale!!!

  69. And I follow on twitter and tweeted :-)

  70. Baby Spinach. It’s prewashed and no chopping req’d so it’s an easy addition to any meal, hot or cold!

  71. cdub says:

    I have lots of favorites but right now I’m training for a half ironman and so it’s yams! Yam fries (baked with coconut oil of course) almost every day… but it changes depending on what my body needs (it was cauliflower a few weeks ago and artichokes after that). Thanks for the new book Dreena, it’s amazing! I would love to win this to pass it on to my girlfriend who is expecting her second baby. She is trying to cut out all the “processed crap” as she puts it.

  72. Karen says:


  73. MindyBean says:

    How can I pick just one? I guess I’ll go with spinach since I have it in my smoothies every morning & my salads every night. Thank you for your wonderful site!

  74. smartlabelprint says:

    My favorite vegan food is bell peppers. Good cooked or raw!

    (I don’t have fb).

    I just purchased your new book. If I’m selected will you please send me a copy of one of your older books?

  75. marysuesylw says:

    Chickpeas FTW! Although 99.99% of the entries are also yummy.

  76. akferguson says:

    Kale! It grows year-round in my garden here in Portland, so I can always have it super fresh!

  77. @AustinRideout says:

    Greetings! Being vegan, myself, I have grown to love the sea. Seaweed, Chlorella, Spirulina, Nori, Bladderwrack, etc. I love making my own sushi with brown rice and farmers market cucumbers. :)

  78. ingrid says:

    chick peas!!

  79. lionnfoothills says:


  80. lionnfoothills says:

    I adore tomato!! I love them just about anyway they are prepared and love to cook with them.

  81. Aireater LidiaLF says:

    Right now I am in love with Buckwheat Groats and Irish Moss. Both fantastic together in a raw bread.

  82. veganair says:


  83. frecklepuss says:

    CHICKPEAS!!! Love em! and now that I have mastered making them from a bag rather than opening a can I make them in advance. I then freeze them in ziplock bags so they are ready when I need them to add to a recipe or defrost and eat as they are!

  84. veganair says:

    Dark chocolate!

  85. argylejenn says:


  86. veg jenski says:


  87. veg jenski says:

    Quinoa! I love it because it is so versatile, super healthy and always delicious!

  88. vappole says:

    Wow, there are so many! I love fresh herbs, such as parsley, cilantro, basil.. they add so much taste and nutrients. Another is avocado.. I like avocado with almost anything! And pomegranades.. I’d probably put them on the top of my list!

  89. Avocado =). Very hard to choose though.

  90. hodsonmk says:

    My current favorites are lentils, kale and chard! I love making soups loaded with these types of awesome plant-powerful foods.

  91. JennWoj says:

    New to the vegan lifestyle, but I’ve always loved kale and spinach. Quinoa is a new favorite. This cookbook would be a great help to me.

  92. katiemgibbs says:


  93. katiemgibbs says:

    I would say hemp or chia seeds! They are so healthy and can be used a ton of different ways!

  94. papiyonmov says:

    tweet! (RawShopper)

  95. papiyonmov says:

    I Liked on FB. My favorite plant-food lately is steamed brussel sprouts. I just can’t get enough of them!

  96. honi says:

  101. Cat says:

  109. radioactivegan says:

    I’m loving lentils lately – in everything! (And I *love* your facebook page :) )

  110. Elizabeth says:

    Almonds! I carry them in my backpack, purse, and keep them in my glove box as “emergency almonds.” This way, I can use them to hold me over until I can get some real food (and prevents me from buying something that wouldn’t really fill me up, anyway.) They also make almond butter, another one of my favorites :)

  111. camsmama says:

    I love your recipes! I had already ‘Liked FB’…My favorite plant-powered ingredient is spinach. And, I LOVE that my son (6 yrs.) eats it without hesitation…:-)

  120. julie says:

    Kale. I have it every morning in my green smoothie!

  121. Bevie says:

    Tweet…I should have read the conditions properly before entering. I don’t live in the US or Canada.

  122. Bevie says:

    Love beans. I can make them into burgers, burritos or puree them as a thickener for a veggie casserole. (I’m a bit lazy and mostly use the ones from a can rather than cooking them from dry though)

    • Dreena says:

      oh thank you, that’s lovely to hear. I’ll be bringing many posts here to hopefully help you along your new vegan journey as well. If you’re finding it challenging right now, will assure you it gets easier, and yummier!

  130. AnnaG says:

    There are so many that I love but right now I’m really loving raw cacoa powder. I make chocolate smoothies with spinach, bluberries, a banana, dates, flax, cacao powder and some non-dairy milk. I love it and the kids do too!

  131. Sabrina says:


  132. Sabrina says:

    Chia seeds are my favorite plant-powered food. They’re packed with omega-3s, calcium, magnesium, anti-oxidants, the list goes on!

  133. amonssen says:

    Tweet! :)

  134. amonssen says:

    My favorite plant-powered food is chick-peas! You can do so much with them and they are soo satisfying! Love running home and having a delicious homemade hummus waiting in the fridge :)

  138. My favourite plant-powered food right now is quinoa. I suffer from migraines and this amazing super food makes my brain really calm and happy! I’ve been waiting until May 1st to order my new Dreena cook book and gift it to friends. So I’m super excited for the chance to win it! What a fun contest!!!

  139. mom22kidz says:

    I am obsessed with Swiss chard. Had it for breakfast, it was yummo!

  140. vegjess11 says:

    Like so many on here, its kale. Kale is my boyfriend! It goes with everything, raw, steamed, blended, and don’t even get me started on kale chips. Yum!

  141. princesstofu says:

    now that i live in california, my favorite ingredient is always avocados. :) they go well with almost everything!

  142. Lola_318 says:


  143. Lola_318 says:

    My fav plant-powered food is mango. Love love love it!

  144. Vicki says:

    Right now I’m really loving collard greens!! I’ve always been a big fan of yours, Dreena, and I “like” you all over the place and hope I win your latest cookbook!

    • Dreena says:

      awww, Vicki, thank you. Our blogging history goes back a long way, doesn’t it? It means a lot that you are still following my work and enjoying my recipes Vicki. xo

      • Vicki says:

        I’m flattered. By my calculations you & I go back to 2005! What a fun time. Many of your recipes are my standard for how something should taste like your hummus and chocolate cookies. I haven’t blogged in quite a while, but my passion still runs deep. xo

  145. My favorite plant powered food is kale. As a former bacon queen I, for one, wasn’t sure going plant powered would work for me and second, thought that giving up bacon would be like prying a toy from a toddlers hands. I was mistaken! I don’t miss meat, especially bacon, at all! My new bacon is kale. I could eat it all day on everything. I always have it on hand, tear little pieces off and add to whatever I’m eating. Well, maybe not ice cream, but who knows I might like that too!

  146. emmalynn618 says:

    My fave plant-powered food is avocado!

  147. anna says:


    (should’ve put this as a regular post on its own, not as my favorite plant-powered food post!)

  148. anna says:


    My favorite plant-powered foods are cruciferous! =) Broccoli, cauliflower, raw, cooked, smoothied, it’s all great.

  149. Sequoia262 says:


  150. Sequoia262 says:

    I love black beans, too… Can’t wait to try your white bean soup recipe with black beans!

  151. Heatherdee says:


  152. Heatherdee says:

    My favorite plant-powered food is kale (I’m actually wearing my Kale shirt today!). I love that I can pack a nutrient dense punch into my recipes by adding kale to as many things as I can for my little family! Thanks for the opportunity for us to share. By reading the other posts, it is inspiring me to use them more!

  153. jackson1250 says:

    I’ve already “liked” your fb page, follow you on twitter and will re-tweet this post but I also just ordered “Let Them Eat Vegan” and I’m very anxious to receive it. Now that I’ve become a little familiar with your methods, I’m going for the new curries first.

    Just to let you know; this will be the last printed book that I’m going to buy. Physical storage space at my house is very limited and I have almost unlimited space available on my computer so from now on it’s e-books for me.

    • Dreena says:

      Thomas, I feel flattered that my book is to be your ‘last’ printed order. I like that tangible feel of cookbooks, but I do think the future will all be ebooks, having a monitor in your kitchen to view everything, etc. Thanks for your support – through social media and beyond. Truly hope you love LTEV.

  154. Ali says:

    I’m loving collard greens these days. Can’t get enough!

  155. sljohnston says:

    I love agar-agar at the moment, can’t get enough of using it!

    I am completely in love with Kale!!!

  157. shaver09 says:

    My favorite plant-powered food of all time is chickpeas, but lately I’ve rediscovered the joy of oatmeal for breakfast, cooked on the stove with pecans and dried cranberries.

  158. Suzanne says:

    My favorite plant-powered food is Tempeh. We use to make Tempeh Reubens, Sloppy Joes and a variety of other things.

  159. MarkTwain says:

  163. JoelleMichelle says:

    My favorite plant-powered food right now is black beans! Love to make black bean burgers, throw ‘em in my salads and soups. They fit in just about anywhere!
