Reviewed in the United States on March 14, 2018
Our family is a Whole Food Plant Based family. I am married to a family physician who teaches his patients about this life saving eating lifestyle. We are always on the lookout for GOOD recipes to share with patients. Dreena Burton has done a fantastic job creating recipes for this cookbook for Dr Barnard. I have tried a number of these recipes. This is a 5 star choice. (Plant Based Families is also an excellent choice) This cookbook however is better for those who are avoiding oils that are not in their original packaging ( i.e. choosing to eat olives in preference to olive oil or whole nuts instead of nut oils.) The recipes I have tried and really enjoyed are: Lentil Minestrone - sturdy stew-like. Pizza, Pizza - delicious; Orange Tofu - easy and fabulous with the Coconut Rice and Broiled Asparagus; Rad Thai! - over the top good. I used Barilla thin spaghetti with it. Soft-Baked Tamari Tofu - YES; - I press it first in a press, dice into 1/2" cubes and toss in the tamari. Jamaican Stew - great! I used sweet potatoes instead of plantain. The Thai Corn and Sweet Potato Stew is fantastic. I served it with brown rice on the side. If I double it I will use 1/2 tofu and 1/2 black beans. Twice the tofu would be too much and the beans would add to it already amazing rainbow of colors. Wow.
