Chia pudding, bircher bowls, whole-grain porridge—these are just some of the nourishing recipes presented here by popular vegan chef and food writer Chaplin. While not all of the items are strictly vegan, they are vegetarian and gluten- and dairy-free, with no refined sugar. With the focus on “whole foods,” some of the recipes require more unusual ingredients and/or extra cooking and prep time, but the emphasis is on regular weekday meals. One nice feature is the use of “base” recipes that can be customized for a variety of tastes. Another helpful section features ideas for menu planning and preparing food for the week ahead, with a list of resources for purchasing harder-to-find ingredients such as dried sea vegetables, beet juice powder, and yacon syrup, made from a South American tuber.
VERDICT Nicely illustrated with close-up color photographs, this book encourages cooks to try new ingredients and techniques to make healthier food but may be a little advanced for some audiences.
