The following is a guest blog from peta2’s Marta.
If there’s one thing I like, it’s a guy who knows how to work a microwave. That might sound weird, but hear me out. For the past many months, my friend Starza and I have been working hard to bring you PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook: 275 Easy, Cheap, and Delicious Recipes to Keep You Vegan at School. Here’s the really exciting part: The most complicated cooking contraption you’ll need for these recipes is a microwave!
What does this all have to do with Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson? Well, as it turns out, the lovely Mr. Pattinson loves microwaves too. According to an interview with Pattinson in the April issue of GQ, “He explains that the place he’s staying at in L.A. has a microwave, and that he’s never had a microwave before, and that he spends a lot of time looking for new things you can microwave.” Including a carrot! Talk about a match made in heaven (meaning Pattinson and the cookbook, not him and me—although, now that I think about it …).
Anyway, I can’t imagine a more perfect gift for him right now than PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook, which is exactly why we sent one his way today. After all, the cookbook is perfect for any busy person—whether you’re a college student or a movie star. Wouldn’t it be awesome if he realized how easy it is to be vegetarian and gave up the flesh?
Now, the cookbook doesn’t come out until May, but here’s a sneak peek at a recipe you can sink your teeth into right now!
Campus Streaker Sausage Dip
