‘Win It’ Wednesday: Signed Copy of Sarah Silverman’s Book

Written by PETA | June 2, 2010

No-holds-barred comic Sarah Silverman‘s stand-up may make some of her audience members blush, but compassionate people will cheer as they read about her childhood vegetarian revelations described in her memoir, The Bedwetter. And this week’s “Win It” Wednesday prize is sure to make animal defenders do the wave—it’s a signed copy of The Bedwetter, in which Sarah scrawled, “Woo-hoo, PETA.”


Sarah Silverman's book


We’ve got one book to give away, and you can win it by describing the animal-free feast that would make you “Woo-hoo!” right out of your seat. Spicy guacamole with blue corn chips and savory Mexican lasagne would do the trick for me. Try and top mine—the person whose mouthwatering vegan meal makes our bellies rumble the loudest will win the prize.

The contest ends on June 16, 2010, and we’ll select a winner on June 18, 2010. Be sure to read our privacy policy and terms and conditions, as you’re agreeing to both by commenting. Good luck!

    are we supposed to post recipes? only i don’t know the recipe but yesterday my sister made mexican lasagne with all veg ingredients just for me and it was fab! I’ve no idea where she got the recipe from but it would have been some mainstream site. and for pudding some strawberries probably with really dark chocolate melted for dipping…

  • Rachel A says:

    Aww. just one? P It would have to be dad’s famous veggie curry. The sauce is made with tomatoes mushrooms peppers onions LOTS of curry powder and vegetable stock. Steam and roast a wide selection of any veggies to go with it liberally smothered in veggie margarine and serve with fresh golden rice. D

  • Brittany says:

    I can’t choose but my favorite 2 vegan dinners are tofu marsala and general tso tofu. Both having AMAZING flavor and are so good I can literally eat the wholesale package of tofu myself. I have made both of these dishes for my parents who are not vegans and they love it. I even gave them the recipe so they can make it themselves. By the way they were hardcore tofu haters until they tried these fabulous dishes.

    My favorite meal is a raw vegan dish of lasagna made with zucchini……goes like this Lasagna with Cilantro Pesto and Sundried Tomato with Sundried Black Olive Tapenade makes one 9×11 pan Noodles 3 medium zuchinni about 1 lbs to 1 tsp salt 3 tbs olive oil H20 Cut off top and bottom and then in half lengthwise. Slice as thin as possible by hand or with a mandoline. Marinate with to 1 tsp salt and 3 tbs olive oil. Work salt and olive oil into slices gently by hand and dehydrate in a shallow pan for 46 hours 115 degrees or until tender turning occasionally to prevent drying. If the zuchinni looks dry add more olive oil or a combination of oil water. 23 caps of portabello mushrooms about to 1 lb 3 tbs nama shoyu 12 tbs olive oil 1 tsp Italian seasoning or sub 23 tbs fresh herbs Slice as thin as possible by hand or with a mandoline through the cap down towards the gills and stem making “noodles”. Marinate with nama shoyu olive oil and seasoning and place in a pan and dehydrate at the same time as your zuchinni. Also stirring occasionally and checking to make sure it doesn’t dry out. Add more oil or a combination of oil and water as necessary to prevent slices from getting too dry. Sundried Tomato Tapenade cup sundried tomatoes soaked in 1 cup H20 for 46 hours cup sundried black olives pitted 1 medium sweet pepper chopped or 1 cup equivilant of small sweet pack peppers 2 cloves garlic cup olive oil Pulse all above in a food processor leaving a little chunky. If mixture seems to thick to move in work bowl drizzle a little extra olive oil. It should stay fairly thick. Pine nut ricotta I use the one in the Balanced Plate and change it a bit or use your fermented seed cheese 1 cup pine nuts cup macadamia or more pine cup cashews Lemon juice Salt Olive oil Coconut butter Nutritional yeast optional Toasted Sesame oil optional Cilantro Pesto 1 cup soaked sunflower seeds 2 cloves garlic 1 bunch cilantro chopped around 2 cups 1 tsp salt 1 tbs miso 2 tbs lemon juice to 1 cup olive oil part flax oil can be used Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and run until fairly smooth. I enjoy this as a dressing as well I just add more oil and stop when I reach my desired consistency. To assemble Coat the bottom of your pan with a small amount of coconut butter and start laying zuchinni slices slightly overlapping and covering the entire bottom of the pan. Put aside of the tapenade and use the rest to cover the first layer of noodles. Arrange a layer of mushrooms allowing some space between and press lightly across the whole pan to set these layers. Set aside of the cheese and with the rest place a layer of “cheese”. Sometimes this cheese can be a bit sticky so it is ok to form into thin patty’s with your hands and lay them down not having to get all layers to meet and stick just try to keep it uniform in thickness. Repeat process this time substituting Pesto for tapenade. After this second layer of cheese lay out one final zuchinni layer press down with your hands on the whole lasagne and top with tapenade. Set in fridge for hour before slicing. Makes 9 3×3″ slices. Dehydrate 115 for 46 hours before serving.

  • Tracy says:

    I still haven’t learned to cook a lot of tasty dishes. I do make a mean 7bean chili. My favorite treat to myself is to walk to my vegetarian restaurant and get the “chicken” parmesan sandwich and sweet tea. One day if it’s a really special day I’m going to order dessert. They make all of their desserts themselves.
