Cooking from the Spirit: Easy, Delicious, and Joyful Plant-Based Inspirations

Morrow Cookbooks. Oct. 2022. 208p. ISBN 9780063080324. $30. COOKING
This vegan cookbook by actress, restaurateur, and Feeding the Soul author Brown showcases recipes that comfort, nourish, and satisfy. The book opens with Brown’s long, friendly, welcoming introduction, where she shares her health journey and offers advice, a pantry list, and kitchen tips (clean vegetables in warm water, a bit of sugar or salt, and apple cider vinegar). Arranged by types of food (breakfasts, pizzas, burgers, appetizers, mains, soups/salads, treats), the dishes are a mix of easy-to-do, fun-to-do, and I-am-going-to-make-that—such as the carrot bacon and the pecan taco meat. The tone of the book is intimate, as if readers are in Brown’s kitchen as she makes a meal and serves up advice at the same time. The book concludes with menu suggestions for a range of gatherings.
VERDICT Brown’s many fans will welcome a chance to spend more time with her; vegans will be happy for new ideas. Will be a pleaser.
