I am absolutely thrilled to announce that my very first cookbook, The Clean Vegan Cookbook, is coming out January 10th, 2023 and is now available for pre-order! This book is a must-have plant-based cookbook for your kitchen – a collection of 60 of my most favorite healthy and delicious plant-based recipes. I have spent the past year testing and developing these BRAND new recipes and writing this book with Page Street Publishing of Macmillan, and I cannot wait for you to try them. I am a firm believer that food should be fun, and this book is just that. Joyful recipes that are sure to have you smiling ear to ear with tastiness in every bite.
The Clean Vegan Cookbook
I have designed this book to answer all of the questions I wish I had answers to when I first went vegan. It will help you simplify clean vegan eating and find meals you enjoy no matter what type of cuisine you are craving. My hope is for you to find joy and pleasure in realizing that clean and healthy vegan eating should never feel restrictive or limited, but instead crave-worthy and satisfying.
This book is organized by meal type to make your meal planning for the week easier than ever, so that you can quickly find a delicious recipe for a balanced breakfast, a nourishing main, a superfood soup, a glowing bowl of greens or a sinless sweet and healthy treat. Each recipe will have you exclaiming, “Wait, that’s vegan and healthy?” (Trust me – my husband Clinton says it all the time!) I hope that with every bite of these recipes, you and your loved ones will experience that excitement while also feeling the benefits of these clean vegan recipes.
The Clean Vegan Cookbook also provides a complete guide to plant-based eating covering all of the essentials that you need to have a diverse and well-rounded diet and explain simple ways to skip the junk and processed food that often gets looped into to vegan eating. Whether you’re new to the plant-based life, a seasoned pro, or someone who is just looking to incorporate plant-based meals occasionally, this book was designed to please those far and wide and satisfy every craving.
The Clean Vegan Cookbook is now available for pre-order on Amazon as well as many other retailers you can view here. I can’t wait for you to get your hands on the hard copy. While waiting for it to arrive to your door, I hope you will enjoy checking out some photos and highlights from the book below!
What to Expect From The Clean Vegan Cookbook
Once you have your hard copy in hand, you will want to head straight to the Complete Vegan Staples Guide and Plant Based Protein 101 sections. These lists are two resources that many of you have been asking me about for years. I have finally created them in one easy-to-navigate guide which kicks off this book. It explains the core ingredients I personally keep in my fridge and pantry at all times, as well as the best complete plant-based protein sources, and most importantly – how to use all of them. It also explains when using oil is an absolute must, and when there are other ways to achieve the same result without.
In the Nourishing Mains section, you will find everything from Asian-inspired dishes like the “Teriyaki Cauliflower” above, to tacos, to flatbreads, grain bowls, and more. Flip to the Balanced Breakfasts for a collection of recipes both sweet and savory, including my go-to smoothie for boosting my energy, digestion, and overall wellbeing. The entire collection of Salads and Sandwiches is anything but boring and includes recipes like my “Fig Jam and Mozzarella Grilled Cheese” and a “Moroccan Carrot Salad” that will surely be in your regular rotation.
The Soup section is as cozy as you can imagine. If for no other reason, pre-order this book now so you can make my “Chicken Tortilla Soup, Hold the Chicken” on the coldest January days – it will warm you right up with every bite. Flip to the final pages for a section on Sinless Sweets, which includes my favorite sweet treats and desserts free of animal ingredients and refined sugar, but full of flavor – the “Chocolate Dipped Pecan Macaroons” are a must, trust me.
