#1 New York Times Bestseller, first in the bestselling series

Thug Kitchen started their wildly popular website to inspire people to eat some goddamn vegetables and adopt a healthier lifestyle. Beloved by Gwyneth Paltrow ('This might be my favorite thing ever') and with half a million Facebook fans and counting, Thug Kitchen wants to show everyone how to take charge of their plates and cook up some real f*cking food.

Yeah, plenty of blogs and cookbooks preach about how to eat more kale, why ginger fights inflammation, and how to cook with microgreens and nettles. But they are dull or pretentious as hell—and most people can't afford the hype.

Thug Kitchen lives in the real world. In their first cookbook, they're throwing down more than 100 recipes for their best-loved meals, snacks and sides for beginning cooks to home chefs. (Roasted Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos? Pumpkin Chili? Grilled Peach Salsa? Believe that sh*t.) Plus they're going to arm you with all the info and techniques you need to shop on a budget and go and kick a bunch of ass on your own.

This book is an invitation to everyone who wants to do better to elevate their kitchen game. No more ketchup and pizza counting as vegetables. No more drive-thru lines. No more avoiding the produce corner of the supermarket. Sh*t is about to get real.

Can't get enough? Check out the bestselling follow-up Thug Kitchen: Party Grub.

Of the majority of the reviews that I am reading on this cookbook, most of them mention how funny it is, true, how good the recipes sound, true also. However, has anyone actually tried cooking the recipes? After all it is a cookbook. A friend of mine bought this book and we decided to try several of the recipes together. It was hit and miss, more miss than hit sadly. We had to track down the ingredients for some as they were not always readily available. Since the thugs live in the west coast area I am guessing these items easily available. These recipes are not for those who are in a hurry as they are mostly time consuming. Although my friend and I are both great cooks and he is a trained chef, we also wondered if they taste tested their  plates before posting the recipes,  many of the steps did not come out like described in the recipe. It still has some good idea for the vegan palate, but I'll pass on this one.

Love love love this book! While I'm not negan or paleo, it has great recipes and awesome easy to follow steps!  It encourages people to try new foods and even experiment with ingredients. Can't wait to start cooking. And yes the language can be offensive to some what that's what makes it humorous. Eat like you give a f***

Chock full of easy-to-prepare, cheap-to-make, and delicious-as-f**k vegan recipes...and the hardback is gorgeously put together. Awesome.

I initially only bought the cookbook to support Thug Kitchen. However, I was not aware it was a meat-free cookbook. Despite that, I've found that the recipes are good, ingredients are readily available in most supermarkets (there are a few things here and there that are not) and the book is downright funny, though not for those easily offended by swearing or cussing, i.e. F bombs, mo'fo, etc. in longform. I was not even close to being disappointed despite no meat included. A worthy addition to my manly collection of cookbooks. :)

This is a great book! The recipes are amazing and not overly complicated. Two groups I would not recommend this for, which you might guess from the reviews: 1. People who are too uneducated to recognize that language is a social construct and there are no "good words" and "bad words." Stick to your Better Crocker pamphlets, tea party housewives. 2. People who are too stupid to understand that the subtitle, "Eat Like You Give a F*ck" means that the recipes are going to be kind recipes.

This book absolutely lived up to the hype. I purchased it after following Thug Kitchen on Instagram and I'm so glad I did! The recipes are direct, creative, and absolutely delicious! It is truly unlike any cookbook I've ever owned in that it provides me with nourishing recipes while also making me feel like a total badass.

Everything I've made from this cookbook is delicious and nutritious. I love reading it too - these guys make cooking and eating healthy fun, easy & entertaining. I highly recommend! (Note: these are all vegan recipes. I am not vegan, but I love the recipes regardless. They are filling and I know they're good for me.)

I'm mostly happy with this cookbook. It was a fun read (despite the generous splattering of swear words) and the recipes sound good. The only complaint -- the budget needed to actually make the recipes. A lot of the stuff isn't something you can purchase at your local grocer (maybe it's more suited for options available in bigger cities or the West Coast, but for a small-town girl on the East Coast, some of the ingredients just weren't happening). Also, some of the recipes, such as the pad thai, were majorly lacking in flavor. The cookbook made good on its promise of making vegetarian eating intriguing and filling, but fell flat by stubbornly sticking to organic snobbery that limits those without the means to get all the ingredients. Still, I recommend it!

I am THUG. I do NOT approve.

Okay, I am a cookbook addict. And I have pretty much every vegan cookbook ever published in some format. So when I was in the bookstore with my 17-year old daughter yesterday and she recommended this book I wasn't overly impressed. But I love to curse and the title really did appeal to me. I flipped through and was amused by the commentary throughout so I bought it (they had me at Carpe F*cking Diem - Breakfast). But this has now become my favourite vegan cookbook of all time (yes, even on the level of Veganomicon, which if you don't have it is the mother of all vegan cookbooks). I love the recipes in this book, the tips and hints, the simplicity and straight-forward approach. I've already pre-ordered their next book (Thug Kitchen Party Grub: For Social Motherf*ckers) and shipped another copy of this one to my son who is in college in Toronto. Now if you're easily offended you probably won't like this book. Which is too bad for you because the recipes are outstanding. If you can get past the colourful language and want to eat healthy - go buy this book. Personally I love everything about this book. Now I gotta go cook!

This recipe book is so much fun! And the recipes are all really delicious. Perfect combination of fun and yum.

I loved this cookbook! The very blunt, in your face approach to eating healthy is fantastic. There were blurbs in there regarding soy and other items that answered a lot of questions and laid to rest preconceived notions. The tone of the book really had me laughing as I read through it. And of course the recipes are totally delicious.

Purchased 3 copies so far. Big hit... recipes are so delicious! Chickpea broccoli burritos were a huge hit!

I'm a total potty mouth, so I love the humor and foul language in the book. I also love that it's a vegan cookbook. I'm not vegan, but everyone once in a while, vegan soup or burritos really hit the spot.

I had no idea this was so popular until I started to wrap it for a girlfriend. My daughter came unglued - she HAD to have it for her friend, etc. & so forth. It's good for that difficult to buy for 20 to 60 yr. old. It's good for all eating philosophies AND appears to be a better coffee table book than....normal coffee table books.

The language is what makes the book so humorous - it is what Thug Kitchen has always been about. The recipes are FANTASTIC.
