Unbelievably Vegan: 100+ Life-Changing, Plant-Based Recipes

Clarkson Potter. Jan. 2022. 288p. ISBN 9780593232989. $29.99. COOKING
Morgan, a private chef to celebrities, shares her knowledge and passion for plant-based meals in this entertaining cookbook. The author details her transition to a vegan diet alongside her husband, former NFL linebacker Derrick Morgan, and how her home-cooked meals caught the attention of his teammates. Morgan eventually began delivering meals for nearly two dozen football players. She is enthusiastic about helping readers begin incorporating plant-based meals and excels at sharing fundamentals and strategies. Recipes are heavily inspired by her Puerto Rican and Creole background, with influences from other global cuisines. There are creative vegan twists on American classics (ranch dressing; cheesecake) and flavor-forward standouts (walnut chorizo; Caribbean ceviche; Grandma Duplechan’s Creole Gumbo). Morgan nods to football with game-day recipes (Chili con Chili; Lemon-Pepper Wingz). Morgan’s distinctive recipes will appeal to readers versed in vegan cooking, but the approachability and focus on fundamentals also make this a great book for those curious about plant-based cooking. Readers interested in further exploring a plant-based diet may enjoy Super Easy Plant-Based Cookbook, by Kathy A. Davis.
VERDICT A lively book, ideal for newcomers to plant-based cooking.
