Three “Perfect” Resources for Whole Foods Plant Based Recipes

If you read last week’s post, you know my struggle with the idea of “perfect”.  While perfection may in truth be mere fantasy, the following three cookbook authors come pretty darn close.

What makes a recipe perfect outstanding in my book?  Three words: simple, delicious, and nutritious.  Whether you are a plant based pro or novice, finding new ways to prepare plants has never been so easy.

Consider spending some quality time in the kitchen this weekend using any (or all!) of the following to guide your way:

The How Not to Die Cookbook: If the title doesn’t grab you, the recipes will.  Old favorites like lasagna, stuffed mushrooms, and mac and cheese get a makeover that will make you healthier for eating them.  Even better, all book proceeds go to charity.

The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook for Your Instant Pot: If you have an Instant Pot, this one will change your life.  Make everything from homemade yogurt to black bean burgers with minimal hands on effort.  The many soothing soup recipes included are perfect for  fortifying the immune system during cold and flu season.

Dreena Burton: With several books, a plethora of online recipes, and an email newsletter, this author seems never to be a loss for ideas.  Her muffins have gotten T to cooperate more than any other bribe thus far.
