Praise for Plant and Planet: Sustainable and Delicious Vegetarian Cooking for Real People

“Delicious vegetarian recipes are paired with ‘practical, real life advice for a better planet’ in this excellent collection. To save money and time, home cooks are offered a tantalizing selection of five-ingredients-or-fewer meals—including charred whole broccoli salad—and ten meals that can be made in less than ten minutes—such as mushroom scallops with quick pea mash, and caramelized banana and orange parfaits. Zero-waste dishes, including a glorious grainless pie crust with whole-citrus filling, zero-waste pesto, and vegetable scrap stock, are easy on the wallet as well as the planet. Home cooks looking to eat more consciously will find this immensely inspiring and deeply satisfying.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“[A] practical guide to vegetarian cooking that takes the guesswork out of developing basic cooking skills, building a pantry, and meal planning. The first thing that makes this cookbook stand out from the pack is its focus on sustainability, including hints, tips, and expert opinions on how and why to make your kitchen environmentally friendly. The second noteworthy feature of this book is the practicality. . . . Recipes are easy and flavorful. . . . This cookbook provides a great entry point to new vegetarians that are motivated by ecology and plenty for those of us who want to audit their kitchen’s sustainability.”Booklist
