Vegan food sales have risen dramatically over the past years as consumers look for healthier options and express concerns over the ethics and environmental damage done by animal agriculture. Longtime vegan author and expert Atlas (Vegan on a Budget; Wild About Greens) offers 125 tantalizing recipes of traditional favorites (e.g., classic ragu, pepper steak, gyros) all made with plant protein ingredients. Beans, tofu, tempeh, seitan, grains, and vegetables also dominate recipes in categories encompassing soups, casseroles, pastas, sandwiches, salads, and sauces. Familiar favorites like chicken noodle soup, jambalaya, meatloaf, and tuna noodle casserole will entice home cooks. Recipes conveniently include straightforward steps and are designed with both veteran vegans and those new to plant-based cooking in mind. A sidebar alongside each recipe gives options for the protein in a given dish, and a comprehensive index lists recipe by protein type. Vivid photographs by Kaminsky will guide home cooks along the way.
VERDICT This visually appealing collection of healthy recipes will appeal to all readers looking for meatless-meal options.
