The Vegenaise Cookbook: Great Food That's Vegan, Too (Hardcover)
100 “you’d-never-know-it’s-vegan” comfort food recipes, made with Vegenaise
Welcome to Vegenaise, a game changer in the plant-based kitchen. This healthier, vegan alternative to mayonnaise is a cult favorite—even carnivores love the stuff. In addition to being a delicious spread, this versatile ingredient can be used to make salads, dips, sandwiches, breads, cakes, and more. Gwyneth Paltrow “basically can’t live without Vegenaise.” Wait until she tries these recipes!
The Vegenaise Cookbook features nostalgic, tuck-in food that is mouth wateringly delicious. The recipes are carefully curated and tested, and they use readily available ingredients. Many are inspired by the offerings at Follow Your Heart, the natural foods restaurant that author Bob Goldberg and friends opened in 1970. This is a cookbook without pretense or judgment. It’s family-friendly, crowd-friendly, dietary-friendly food for a whole new generation that has taken the animal righteousness out of vegan and eats this way because it’s darn good food.
About the Author
Bob Goldberg is cofounder and CEO of Follow Your Heart sandwich bar, opened in 1970 in Canoga Park, California, where he developed Vegenaise. Follow Your Heart started as a seven-seat vegetarian food counter that needed an egg-free “mayo.” Vegenaise was born. Follow Your Heart continues to operate the original market and café but has grown the Vegenaise family into a $60-million business. Bob resides in the Santa Susana Mountains with his wife, Kathy.
Guys, this is more than just a cookbook. It's a culinary bible on how to use the beloved Vegenaise in the most delicious and creative ways possible. It seems silly to be excited about mayo, but hear me out: this condiment is a miracle worker in the kitchen.

I already loved the savories, but, oh, the desserts! This will be your bedside read, your kitchen partner, your wow-the-table food bible. The story is fascinating, the company is ethical, and the product is outstanding.

An unusually beautiful look at everything you can make for your family using alternative plant-based mayo and healthier-for-you ingredients that are still delicious and camera-ready . . . the authors elevated what could have been a run-of-the-mill recipe lineup to an art form.

Follow Your Heart’s Vegenaise has been a staple in my kitchen for decades. From sandwiches and dressing to sauces (and so much more!), it’s an irreplaceable must-have. Lots of copycat products have come to market over the years but none come close to the original Vegenaise. I’m so excited that my favorite vegan kitchen essential finally has its own cookbook!
