OrangeReviewStarIn her best cookbook yet, blogger-turned-author Hamshaw (Food52 Vegan) shares appetizing vegan meals that won't leave you hungry. Substantial recipes such as apple ginger muesli, Vietnamese rice noodle salad with seared tofu, and herbed cauliflower steaks with lemon caper lentils offer a delightful balance of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Delicious main dishes are the stars here—there are no desserts, appetizers, snacks, or beverages. In particular, the meal-sized salads could be welcome weekday lunches or potluck contributions. Hamshaw touches lightly on nutritional guidance, meal planning, and make-ahead techniques (e.g., batch cooking grains and legumes over the weekend), but her advice never feels prescriptive or preachy.
VERDICT Hamshaw brings style and substance to healthful vegan cooking. Highly recommended for anyone interested in plant-based recipes.
