    What a wonderful surprise this one was To be honest I get sooooo many cookbooks from my library that sometimes when they come I don't recall even ordering them This one I guess I reuested as it is a vegan book I'm so glad too as this one is a keeperThe sections are breakfast salad soups bowls skillets and stovetops and bakes So many wonderful easy no fake ingredient recipes which I just love I naturally gravitated to the bowls section Sometimes when I'm feeling lazy I just want a grain and a bunch of veggies on top But my creation is usually uite boring brown rice roasted veggies I need to kick it up a notch and this section helped Seriously Thai peanut noodle bowls with spicy tofu and crisp veggies Korean tempeh bowls with broccoli and brown sweet potato falafel bowls with freekeh pilaf But many other sections had wonderful recipes too Up next for me is the black bean enchiladas with roasted butternut suash I also loved that there were gorgeous mouthwatering photos to accompany each recipe I guess if anything I didn't care for the breakfast section I'm lazy in the am and it's usually peanut butter toast or cookies from the night before it's the breakfast of champions I tell myself And no dessert section Now I'm just being plain picky But a truly great cookbook that I plan to use uite often The recipes are not complicated and just use whole foods lots of veggies and good for you grains

    Book reviews on wwwsnazzybookscomThough I'm not a full time vegan I try to eat vegan meals as much as possible and am always on the lookout for great new vegan recipe books My reuirements are that there aren't too many ridiculous ingredients not too lengthy to cook and of course delicious This book ticks those boxesThe recipes themselves vary in difficulty some are a little too simple for my liking A lot of the salads fall into this category unfortunately as they felt a little too 'basic However there's still a lot of interesting varied meals which are a little different and look very tasty These also seem pretty easy to follow This is definitely of an entry level book as there aren't any hugely elaborate recipes but that probably suits most people because apart from sometimes at the weekend perhaps who wants to spend hours in the kitchen using every utensil imaginable?Categories include breakfast soups salads bowls stovetop skillets and bakes and feature a wide range of recipes I've tried a few  the West African Peanut Stew Thai Peanut Noodle Bowls and Yellow Split Pea Chowder and really liked them There's plenty recipes which look amazing and which I've got lined up to cook including the Curried Jamaican Stew Chickpea Deli Bowls with smashed chickpea salad and Lentil Marinara Lots of sweet treats to try tooThis is a really nicely designed aesthetically pleasing book so would be great for a gift for someone else or for yourself There are lovely photos which are really inspiring and there's a handy introduction section with really useful nutritional information I'd recommend this for anyone looking to start eating vegan or who fancies some inspiration for vegan dishesMany thanks to Abrams and Netgalley for providing a copy of this book on which I chose to write an honest and unbiased review

    25 out of 5Find this review on my blog Simply Ardenuick ReviewNOTE I found that after reviewing the recipes these are not my preferred ingredients or flavors and many of the recipes were not gluten free as well In the end I did find a handful of recipes that I want to try with variations I’m a picky eater to be fairNOTE Not in any way a gluten free cookbook in fact most of the grains mentioned are not gluten free or celiac friendly Gena discusses macro nutrient balance of carbohydrates fats and proteins but does not actually lay out any guidelines She just states that ideally all three should be present in each meal Promotes a spirit of experimentation and customization with the cooking ingredients and recipes which I did appreciate Focuses on preadvanced preparation to make preparing meals easier and faster the day of and explains how to do this with all of the meal staples such as grains beans and legumes The meals do appear to be easy to prepare and most of the ingredients would be easy to acuire save for a few Uses many traditional and pantry style ingredients that you may already have on hand This cookbook does not have very many pages of actual text maybe 30 but is instead filled with beautiful photographs and the recipes themselvesIn Depth ReviewThis is a vegan cookbook that focuses on including healthy carbohydrates fats and proteins in each of the 100 recipes The book is sectioned into six chapters breakfast salads soups bowls skillets and stovetop and bakes The recipes in this book rely heavily on grains such as uinoa rice barley and millet and also beans tofu tempeh and a variety of vegetablesI would not consider most of these recipes “traditional” by any means but instead they explore many different cultures including the Middle Eastern Indian Asian African and I liked the high flavor level and amount of spices and sauces used in each recipes While I appreciated all of this the recipes feature flavors ingredients textures or combinations thereof that I know I am not fond of or have found others that I prefer I also have an issue with claiming the recipes are macro balanced but then offering no nutritional values for each I would have liked to know how each meal was intended to be balanced and what the nutrients were without having to figure it out myselfIf I had to describe this book in two words nutritious and veganLookNOTE I read a hardcover copy of the book that I checked out at my local library What I would consider a standard sized cookbook a bit shorter and fatter than a piece of standard sized paper The cover is a very sturdy and thick cardboard covered in paper with clean and crisp photography on both the back and front cover The pages are a very nice and sturdy semi gloss stock that would withstand splashes and spills well The font is a rather small san serif font that despite it’s size is still fairly easy to read Each chapter is titled with a full page photograph followed by a single page of text describing the intention of the recipes Each recipe contains a descriptive paragraph serving size ingredients and directions Unlike some other cookbooks every recipe in this book is accompanied by a full page photograph that beautifully illustrates the end results There are no process photosFavorite uote“These recipes are created with health pleasure and convenience in mind My intent is for this book to help bring some simplicity and ease to healthful eating something that should be intuitive but can often feel overwhelming”Musical SuggestionsI enjoyed this book while listening to the playlist “gardens in winter instrumentals” on Spotify by Ling MeiyingView all my reviews

    The book is broken down into sections First is Breakfast then Salads Soups Bowls Skillets Stovetop then Bakes There are no desserts andor appetizers but oh wow there are so many delicious looking recipes I like what the author says about the recipes in this book She states that since she is talking about macronutrients she wanted to clarify a few things “Firstit’s not a diet book Nutrition is always on my mind when I create recipes” Second “this book is an offering of vegan recipes that are intended to help you feel nourished whether you’re a lifelong vegan or a curious omnivore” She goes on to say”my personal opinion is human bodies and tastes differ as do the cultures and traditions to this matter we all will do well to listen to our bodies”In the beginning she talks about ingredients and how to cook and store them There is a macronutrient building blocks chart and then she starts off the book with a recipe titled Shortcut Steel Cut Oats I loved the fact that every recipe in this book had a beautiful picture beside the recipe There is also an easy to read indexI like that the author says if you want to add meat andor tofu to the recipe by all means do I added meat to one of the recipes I tried the other I didn’t I tried the Zucchini Pesto Pasta Salad This was easy to make had simple instructions the ingredients I had at home and most of all my family liked it She also has a list of optional accompaniments you can serve with the dish on most recipes She includes serving sizes at the top of the ingredients This recipe can be served hot or cold It was yummy we ate it hot We also tried the Butternut Suash Salad with red uinoa and pumpkin seeds I had to try this because I love butternut suash and all the other ingredients I like but would never think to put them all together We had this one cold It was very good I loved the variety of recipes in this book and the fact that her goal is to give readers power plates The cover states “Inside these book there are 100 nutritionally balanced one dish vegan meals” It doesn’t get any better than thatDisclosure of Material Connection I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale Publisher I was not reuired to write a positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR Part 255 “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”Nora St LaurentTBCN Where Book Fun Begins wwwbookfunorg

Wonderful This book will work perfectly for you as wellIn this book you have really all the choices without loosing anythingOn top of that there is a great mixture of different types of recipes from easy and fast over ready in minutes to the takes a while but so worth it types of recipes So what ever mood you are in? You will find that what you are looking for hereI also love how the book is made up how the sections are It has basically both kind of options of having the sections of soups and salads but there is also the sections of out of the oven or stovetop which i LOVE if cookbooks do that I am one of those people that sometimes has no idea what to cook BUT i know i want to do it in the oven or not the stove and so having those sections in a cookbook? Thats wonderful And sadly done rarely and i think its done BEAUTIFULLY in this bookAll in all?HIGHLY RECOMMENDIts not only a beautifully designed and artfully done book but it also has wonderful recipes and a great mixture of everything that makes me want to become a full time vegan simply to have the reason to cook EVERYTHING in this book

    I had not previously heard of this author or her popular blog My cousin is vegan and she had piued my interest into this lifestyle I liked that the author had a number of categories including breakfast my favorite salads bowls and bakes I am probably the only person that did not know what tempeh is and it is used in a number of the recipes There are a good variety of recipes with many optional add on's contributed as well Each plateful of food is well balanced and thoughtful The dishes are not only visually appealing with the gorgeous rainbow of colors in each one but also nutritionally balanced with protein carbs etcI can not say enough about the beautifully detailed photographs Each recipe has its own picture and is very vibrant They are so well done you feel like you can lick the page to test the dish out or at least scratch and sniff them ;I received this book from the publisher but was not reuired to leave a review All opinions expressed here are my own

    If you’ve been toying with the idea of trying out plant based recipes I cannot recommend this book enoughI checked this out of the library right before uarantine and to my surprise I have been cooking my way through it just about every night with some savory breakfast items thrown in Almost no repeats yet which has been a shock to me since I usually can only find a few recipes in any book that I likeThe recipes are easy to follow I expected to buy a lot of intimidating ingredients but I’ve been able to get what I need from my regular grocery store chain no problem The dishes are full of flavor and very filling 😁 Also importantPictures with just about every recipe This is a must have reuirement for me


  9. Molly Molly says:

    I'm not a vegan but I do like eating a lot of plant based foods I figured Power Plates would be the cookbook to give me ideas so I'm not eating the same thing all the time There are a variety of different recipes but at the same time a lot of them feel the same Most of them are super easy in a bad way There are a lot of salads and bowl type meals and I wish overall that the recipes were exciting

    Absolutely love this book such a winner The first time I tried to go vegetarian I was so hungry This time we are going vegan as my son has allergies to milk and this book has been amazing as the salads soups and bowls don’t leave me hungry or craving for sweets It’s a great book I sure hope the author keeps writing as this definitely exceeded my expectations
