Vegan Freegan: recipes for the rev is a 1/2-letter sized, one-shot vegan cookzine by Jae Steele of Montreal, Quebec. It was first printed in 2001 in a smaller format, with only 20 recipes, as a fundraiser for a queer environmental project in Toronto. The following year it grew to a 68-page second edition which features 70 recipes, including Banana-Date-Almond Smoothies, Tempeh "Sausage" Patties, Grilled "Cheese", Red Lentil Dal, Tofu Jerky, Squash au Gratin, Shepherd's Pie with Mushroom Gravy and lots of dairy and egg-free baked goods. The zine's objective was to provide vegans with a well-rounded range of dairy- and egg-free recipes, from breakfast through to lunch, dinner and dessert.
As a follow-up to Vegan Freegan, jae has put out four issues of a smaller cookzine called Ripe. Her recipes also continue to appear on her food-based weblog, Domestic Affair (domesticaffair.ca ). She will also be putting out a cookbook called Get It Ripe: A Fresh Take on Vegan Living through Arsenal Pulp Press (arsenalpulp.com) in 2008 .
