Praise for jae steele's Get It Ripe:
This book is less a cookbook than an all-in-one guide to healthy
vegan living, for which steele's holistic-nutritionist training is
put to good use."-VegNews
Get It Ripe, jae steele's 2008 cookbook, established
her as a credible and charismatic authority on veganism; her
holistic nutritionist background and sassy cowpunk sensibility
encouraged countless others to get it ripe." Her new cookbook
underscores the importance of local, sustainable eating and living
by helping readers deepen their understanding of organic and local
foods and their positive impact on our health and our planet.
The book includes chapters on the concept of local food and why
it's important; finding a balance between various food issues,
personal priorities and values; and the benefits of the local food
movement that go beyond reducing our carbon footprint. It also
helps readers become more informed about where their food comes
from, no matter where they live, whether their source is the
farmer's market or the grocery store down the street.
The book's 180 recipes, which encourage the use of fresh,
organic ingredients wherever possible (as well as potential
alternatives depending on where you live), include Strawberry
Rhubarb Muffins, Pear Parsnip Soup, Asparagus and Spring Onion
Quiche, Mushroom Asparagus Risotto, and Butternut Chipotle
Both thought-provoking and delectable, steele's new cookbook
makes any time the ripe" time to go vegan.
