It was really only a matter of time before a vegan got all Julie & Julia up in here — and now it looks like it has happened.

Over on MeetTheShannons.net, Dan and Annie Shannon are doing what many believed could never be done: they’re veganizing every recipe in classic The Betty Crocker Cookbook. Whoa!

Sharing a love of plant-based, earth-friendly cuisine, The Shannon’s decided to tackle the project after watching Julie & Julia and being particularly disturbed over the lobster killing scene. Annie quickly decided, “there needs to be a humane alternative to lobster killer” and the challenge was born.

According to their site, “For as long as it takes – Dan & I will be veganizing every recipe in The Betty Crocker Cookbook and sharing our tips and secrets with you – our lurking readers.” And lurk we did!

So far, some of our favorite recipes include Tuna Casserole, Turtle Cheesecake and Cheeseburger Pie. But then again, you might prefer the Chicken Tetrazzini or Hot Fudge Topping.

Just how to they go about making it all vegan? You’ll have to stop by MeetTheShannons.net and see for yourself!
