About Street Vegan:

The thousands of fans who stood in around-the-block lines each week knew what was up: The Cinnamon Snail food truck has serious street credit with vegans and carnivores alike. Before going on hiatus earlier this spring, the truck was named “The Best Food Truck in NYC” by Gothamist, one of the top five food trucks in America by the Huffington Post, and one of the New York Times’s favorite doughnut spots in NYC. From Beer-Battered Habanero Buffalo Wings to Lavender Pear Fritters, chef Adam Sobel challenges how we think about vegan cuisine.

While fans wait to see what Adam and The Cinnamon Snail get up to next, they can try out his genius vegan recipes at home with Street Vegan: Recipes and Dispatches from The Cinnamon Snail Food Truck. Adam shares 150 recipes that teach readers how to master ingredients, build sandwiches overflowing with delicious flavors, and make his award-winning and obsession-inducing donuts.

These comforting and decadent recipes include:

  • BREAKFAST: Maple Mustard Breakfast Seitan Strips; Bourbon Hazelnut Pancakes with Cardamom Brown Butter

  • BEVERAGES: Coconut Star Anise Milk; Vanilla Sesame Milk; Pistachio Milk with Clove and Rosewater

  • SOUPS: Jalapeño Corn Chowder; Seitan Asada and Ancho Red Bean Chili with Cilantro Mint Sour Cream

  • APPETIZERS: Pan-Fried Kimchi Dumplings with Fiery Miso Sauce; Chimichurri Tempeh Empanadas

  • SANDWICHES: Sage Tempeh Sausage Sliders; Blue Corn Hemp Seed–Crusted Tempeh with Smoked Chile Coconut Bacon and Beer-Simmered Onions

  • CINNAMAINS: Rosemary Hemp Seed–Crusted Tofu with Tarragon Garlic Bread Pudding; Red Bean–Scallion Pancakes with Thai Basil  Tofu Strips and Tamarind Plum Sauce

  • DESSERTS: Peanut Butter Chocolate–Ganache Pop Tarts;  Macadamia–White Chocolate Twinkies; Lavender–Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée

  • DONUTS: Black Tea Twists with Cardamom Glaze and Tamarind-Plum Glaze; Lavender Pear Fritters with Meyer Lemon Glaze; Vanilla-Bourbon Crème Brûlée Donuts

Peppered throughout Street Vegan are Adam’s absurd stories and inquisitive ruminations—tales of negotiating parking tickets with free pastries and the unexpected silver lining of working in a truck rather than a restaurant—as well as irresistible photos of the food and of life inside the snail. Street Vegan delivers a vegan cookbook that is mouthwatering, provocative, and enticing on every page.
