Color your kitchen with a rainbow of healthy, delicious plant-based recipes.

You don't need fancy equipment or expensive exotic ingredients to make delicious, healthy, vegan meals at home. LetThe Colorful Kitchentake the mystery out of plant-based cooking and make the experience of cooking and eating easy and delicious.

Certified health coach and plant-based food blogger Ilene Godofsky's cooking philosophy is “colorful, not complicated. When you fill your plate with color, you're not only adding flavor and visual appeal—you're filling your plate with health. Her recipes emphasize vivid combinations of wholesome, plant-based ingredients full of essential vitamins and minerals—because counting colors is way more fun than counting calories and carbs.

Ilene guides readers through easy-to-follow preparations that will make every meal as exciting as it is nourishing.

The Colorful Kitchen's vibrant, sustaining recipes include:

- Pink & Purple Coconut  Smoothie

- Maple-Mustard Squash Grilled Cheese

- Harvest Butternut Squash & Apple Burgers with Sage Aioli

- Chickpea Crust Rainbow Alfredo Pizza

- Pineapple & Peanut Sauce Tofu Wrap

- Strawberry Loaf with Cream Cheese Glaze

- Chocolate Hummus

For too long, vegan food has had a bad reputation: tasteless, boring. Mostly brown. Full of unfamiliar ingredients that take way too long to prepare. Not inThe Colorful Kitchen!

Ilene Godofskyis a health coach, recipe developer, food photographer and the author of the blog The Colorful Kitchen. From her small (but colorful!) kitchen in Queens, New York, she combines her background in design with her passion for plant-based food to create and share recipes that are "colorful, not complicated."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, delicious recipes This has fast become one of my favourite cookbooks. The recipes are easy to follow and don't require strange items you'll only use once. All of the practical whole-food ingredients are easily found in any grocery store. The book has great full-colour pictures, sections are categorized (breakfast, sandwiches, entrees, desserts, etc.), and the index is sorted by ingredients as well as category. Many recipes have already become kitchen staples for me. I've yet to make something that tastes bad. Whether you are new or a veteran to plant-based cooking, I highly recommend you check out this book for a little inspiration.
