Rodale Mar. 2022. 272p. ISBN 9780593233405. $22.99. COOKING
Melvani declares that “every recipe should be inexpensive, simple and practical,” in this first cookbook, where she highlights a variety of vegan recipes and shares her favorite pantry staples. For Melvani, “practical” vegan cooking means always having tofu and tempeh on hand and relying on nuts and seeds for additional protein. Recipes are organized by type and feature pasta dishes, burgers, comfort food. Sides and snacks are also considered, with Melvani taking advantage of chickpeas in various ways. She also lists her favorite kitchen essentials, including a blender and a food processor, for straightforward vegan cooking. Melvani’s accessible handbook has a wealth of meal ideas and should be an important addition to vegan collections (especially given the growth of this topic), since it focuses on ease-of-use in a friendly, approachable style.
VERDICT A handy guide for quick and easy vegan meals.
