"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"The recipes play with a lot of spices and pull inspiration from worldwide cuisines. This means we get a teriyaki stir-fry spin on "broccoli with wild rice" and spicy tamales stuffed with kale and butternut squash. A lot of attention has been paid to seasoning and saucing, ensuring that every recipe cooked from this book feels completely satisfying." - The Kitchn

After testing out the cookbook I have to say I don't miss the animal products because the food tastes delicious. The cookbook itself is lovely in my hands and there is page after page of color photos. The meals are welcoming.
This cookbook has many delicious recipes, and I will tell you my favorites so far: The Thai Fresh Spring Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce is great. I have shared this recipe with my friends who loved it too.
For breakfast I recommend the Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes and the Quinoa Banana Skillet Cakes--Yum!! As a hearty meal I enjoyed the Seared Polenta with Spicy Heirloom Tomato Sauce; and the Four Bean & Sweet Potato Chili with Skillet Corn Bread. For dessert I loved the Coconut Almond & Raspberry Jam Thumbprint Cookies, and the Very Chocolaty Chocolate Brownies. These vegan desserts are very tasty (I don't miss the dairy at all)!
Glad to have found Straight From the Earth. I am happy and inspired!
While I am an omnivore, I try to eat more plant based and organic foods whenever possible. In the past, I have sometimes struggled to enjoy some of the vegan food that I have eaten.
This book changes that equation. The recipes are delicious and satisfying for omnivores and vegans alike.
From the Polenta with Heirloom Tomato Sauce and the Eccentric Caesar salad, to the incredible Chocolate Brownies (seriously, you have to try these!!!), this book contains a wealth of recipes that will have carnivores and vegans celebrating at the table together.
Thanks Myra and Marea. I now have the tools to add more plant based food to my diet, so I can eat healthier and BE healthier
