(Relaxnews) – A gangsta vegan blog that got a shout-out from Gwyneth Paltrow and throws in F-bombs willy nilly is being turned into a cookbook.

Since launching last August the anonymously written blog Thug Kitchen gained a cult-like following for its tough-talking, gratuitous use of expletives and tasty vegan recipes like sweet potatoes and pinto bean tacos, and basmati-stuffed peppers.

Last week, the site announced that The Thug Kitchen Cookbook is ‘officially f—ing happening,” with a “s—-load” of new recipes and photos.

The book will be published in the US by Rodale, and the House of Anansi in Canada. Discussions are also under way for a publishing in the UK, he (or she) writes.

The book is slated to release next fall.

In less than a year, the blog succeeded in amassing more than 340,000 Facebook fans and more than 35,175 followers on Twitter.

During a promotional appearance on the US daytime TV program the “Rachael Ray Show,” healthy eating crusader Gwyneth Paltrow gave Thug Kitchen a shout-out, calling it “brilliant.”

It was also named the best new blog in Saveur magazine’s annual Best Food Blog Awards this year.
