MYRA GOODMAN - STRAIGHT FROM THE EARTH: IRRESISTIBLE VEGAN RECIPES FOR EVERYONE
As environmentally healthful and thoughtful eaters pile on the vegetables and fruits and push animal protein off their plates, the desire for more recipes showcasing fresh produce has gone sky high. From Myra Goodman, the co-founder of Earthbound Farm, and her daughter Marea, comes Straight from the Earth, full of creative, delightful vegan recipes that are so delicious you will change your mind about what it means to eat a plant-based diet.
From their humble beginnings as a 2½-acre raspberry farm, Earthbound now grows and distributes organic produce nationally. Myra and Marea are skillful home cooks, and their proximity to fields of fresh vegetables and fruits made it easy to develop creative—and definitely satisfying—dishes that are not only heavy on the produce, they just happen to be completely free of meat or dairy.
Each recipe in Straight from the Earth comes for either Myra or Marea and their unique voices and styles add a personal, conversational element to this collaborative project. Marea, for instance, has long enjoyed a vegan diet, while Myra has not; for Myra, writing the book has transformed the way she eats. Both women excel in salads, and Marea’s deliciously skewed Eccentric Caesar with its cashew and curry based dressing is just a taste of what’s offered.
The book’s diverse and delectable collection of recipes takes you from breakfast and lunch to dinner and dessert with such satisfying delights as Quinoa-Banana Skillet Bake, Slow-Simmered Beans with Tuscan Kale on Bulgur, Thai Fresh Spring Rolls, and Very Chocolaty Chocolate Brownies. And as you prepare each recipe you will gain insight into organics and essential recipe components like nuts and seeds, soy and coconut, and you will learn the practical and personal reasons to eat vegan. Straight from the Earth ensures that you will enjoy and savor every single bite.
