The second thing an unsuspecting buyer needs to know is you will need a pantry that is well stocked in superfoods and those do not come cheaply. As an example, a recipe for Adaptogenic White Chocolate calls for some of the following : Mucuna Pruriens, Tocotrienols, Astragalus Powder and Ashwagandha powder amongst other ingredients. As someone very interested in adaptogenic foods; I have many of these but certainly not all and stocking your pantry in this manner is not a cheap or simple endeavor! That said, there are certainly a fair share or recipes that use the vegetable as the star - and superfood - of the dish.
The book begins with drinks - some really cool tonics, smoothies and elixirs. They all use superfood powders and the purported benefit is detailed in the description. I loved the juicy green pineapple smoothie as it uses mint and basil as well as pineapple to balance out the ‘green’ taste. It’s also worth noting there is are lot of drinks - over 55 pages - which I liked personally as I am always looking for new ideas.
Then it’s mains - no breakfast though there are dishes in snacks that could serve in this fashion. The dishes are all accompanied by great pictures and vary in terms of their complexity. The black bean meatballs were easy to make and the accompanying rosemary garlic almond cream was delicious - loved the fact that there are many recipes here that are not repeated in most other vegan cookbooks .
Snacks was my least favorite section as it is overwhelming sweet based ( and the book already has a large dessert section ) however some of the energy bars and bites do make excellent school snacks and are loaded with healthy ingredients while appealing to kids. I also liked the seedy herb crackers and the fact that unlike others I have seen, they do not require a dehydrator.
There is a large dessert section which will satisfy the sweetest tooth while being vegan but I loved the next chapter full of sauces, basics and syrups that can lend to many other dishes. This included vegan cheese, a delicious peanut sauce, and some powdered mixes such as green powder and adaptogenic mixes that I can use for travel.
I like this book, it certainly requires a well stocked pantry but has some creative, tasty and unique ideas
