As environmentally healthful and thoughtful eaters pile on the vegetables and fruits and push animal protein off their plates, the desire for more recipes showcasing fresh produce has gone sky high.

So, who better than the folks at Earthbound Farm to deliver those vegetable-centric recipes? From their humble beginnings as a 2 1/2-acre raspberry field, Earthbound now grows and distributes organic produce nationally. Co-founder Myra Goodman and her daughter Marea are skillful home cooks, and the proximity to their fields of fresh vegetables and fruits made it easy to develop creative—and definitely delicious—dishes that are not only heavy on the produce, they just happen to be vegan!

Using the freshest ingredients and offering intriguing flavor combinations, these 100 plant-based recipes are completely free of meat or dairy. As you gain insight on organics and essential components like nuts and seeds, soy, and coconut, you'll also learn about the practical and personal reasons to go vegan.

Taking you from breakfast and lunch to dinner and dessert with such satisfying delights as Quinoa Banana Skillet Bake, Slow Simmered Beans with Tuscan Kale, Thai Lettuce Rolls, and Very Chocolately Chocolate Brownies, Myra and Marea share their diverse and delicious collection of recipes. They excel in salads and Marea's deliciously skewed Eccentric Caesar with its cashew and curry based dressing are just a taste of what's to offer. Choosing a more plant-based diet was a simple choice for them and much too tempting to resist. Their goal? For you to enjoy and savor every single bite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hearty, Healthy, Inventive Recipes So far I've made about half a dozen recipes from this cookbook and in general, I appreciate its inventiveness. The core elements of the recipes themselves aren't exactly new in the vegan world - banana bread and Caesar salad, to name a few - but the twists the authors put on them are great. In fact, the curried Caesar salad is probably the best vegan Caesar I've ever made. My two complaints would be that their recipes do NOT highlight approximate prep and cooking time - a feature I never realized I would miss so dearly until I picked up this book, as it makes it very challenging to discern what a 'weekend' vs. a 'weeknight' meal is. Also, I find their ingredient lists a little on the long side and the recipes a touch involved; not recommended for novice cooks, especially those new to vegan cooking - there were one too many recipes that I just sized up and felt like it would be too pricey or too time-consuming to try. Still, it's a welcome edition for those vegan cooks looking to shake up their cupboards a bit (myself included).
