  • EASY: Multitask effortlessly with slow-cooker dishes like Chili Mac & Cheese
  • MAKE-AHEAD: Prep Lentil Shepherd's Pie when you do have time, and freeze it for later (Melissa explains exactly how!)
  • Plus, ENTERTAIN with White Bean & Zucchini Burgers, MAKE IT YUMMY with wholesome condiments like Hidden Veggies Tomato Sauce, and hydrate for health with PICK-ME-UPS like Beet, Orange & Ginger Juice or a Tropical Green Smoothie.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful info & some great recipes! Overall, this is a useful cookbook if you're interested in going vegan. It provides good information how to adjust your pantry's staples and you'll learn vegan alternatives to common animal products. I have mixed feelings about the recipes I tried, but there are plenty more delicious-sounding recipes in the book, and the recipes I did enjoy (at least two out of the four I made) were ones I loved. Definitely try the Blueberry Muffin Smoothie!
