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).

Myra Goodman and daughter Marea have pulled together more than 90 farm-to-fork recipes for everything from new-wave tabbouleh made with quinoa, to grilled fig sandwiches with roasted pistachio pesto and balsamic caramelized onions. It's billed as a vegan cookbook, but it's the type of fresh, appealing, veggie-centric fare that will appeal to omnivores, vegetarians and foodarians of every persuasion." - San Jose Mercury News"Between the recipes, there are helpful guides that explain why it's important to choose organic foods and the health benefits of including nuts and beans in your diet; there's a good mix of easy recipes and dishes that are weekend cooking projects." - The Oregonian"This isn't a cookbook aimed solely at's an open-arms invitation to everyone to see just how delicious vegan dishes can be and how easy it is to incorporate them into your weekly meals. With this book in your kitchen, Meatless Mondays will become a whole lot more interesting. Who knows, the recipes just might convince you to go vegan all the way." - Epicurious"The recipes play with a lot of spices and pull inspiration from worldwide cuisines.

A lot of attention has been paid to seasoning and saucing, ensuring that every recipe cooked from this book feels completely satisfying." - The Kitchn"The recipes in Straight from the Earth reflect years of producing, harvesting, and cooking locally sourced ingredients. The book is a necessary reference for anyone looking to find unique alternatives to meat-based dishes." - The Daily Meal"Straight from the Earth offers dozens of plant-based recipes that utilize whole foods to create meals that are nothing short of amazing." - The Vegan Mom"Myra and Marea are an inspirational team offering insights into cooking as well as to how a family can come together to create something truly beautiful. They don't preach to us about plant-based diets, but rather invite us to their table to enjoy, as they do, food that is not only straight from the earth but also from the heart." - Oldways"
