I’m the author of two cookbooks, Food52 Vegan (Ten Speed Press, 2015) and Choosing Raw (Da Capo Lifelong, 2014). In these two books, you’ll find a wide array of simple, appealing vegan recipes to satisfy any and all tastes.
“In one timely and terrific volume, Food52 celebrates the versatility and breadth of what is possible in the realm of plant-based cooking. This is vibrant, delicious, crowd-pleasing food made from real ingredients–food that also happens to be vegan. It’s an inspiring book for anyone looking to work more veg-centric meals into their repertoire.” -Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day and Near & Far
Omnivore or vegan (or anywhere in between), we’re all looking for memorable, flavorful dishes to cook for ourselves and the people we care about. If those recipes happen to be healthful, nourishing, and friendly to vegetarians and vegans, even better.
This is an essential collection of hassle-free, vibrant vegan recipes, based my popular The New Veganism column on Food52. It contains over thirty all-new recipes, plus beloved favorites from the column. The recipes, along with exquisite photography and helpful tips, can help anyone to cook with fresh produce and whole foods.
From Savory Breakfast Polenta to Cauliflower and Oyster Mushroom Tacos to Ginger Roasted Pears with Vanilla Cream, these recipes are delicious, dependable, and deeply satisfying. Cook from this book just a couple of times and you’ll soon find yourself stocking up on coconut oil, blending your own nut milks, seeking the sweetest tomatoes at the market, and looking at plant-based dishes in a whole new way.
“You may not be vegan, raw, or even a veggie lover. But no matter who you are and how you like to eat, I promise you that you’ll find something to savor in this book.”
-From the foreword by Kris Carr, New York Times bestselling author, Crazy Sexy Diet and Crazy Sexy Kitchen
Choosing Raw is an ode to the simple, imaginative, and appealing, raw and cooked recipes that helped me to fall in love with a plant-based diet. In the book, you’ll find 125 recipes and 21 days of wholesome, innovative plant-based meal plans. If you’re new to plant-based eating, the book will offer you a well-researched perspective on healthy living (including tons of frequently asked questions), and it will make vegan and raw food feel accessible.
