Introducing the Truly Healthy Vegetarian Cookbook
Introducing, The Truly Healthy Vegetarian Cookbook.
This project was a labor of love and I’m beyond thrilled to share it with you. From the very start, my goal was to create easy, healthy vegetarian recipes that you can make with the ingredients you already have in your kitchen. My dream was never to make a coffee table book. I wanted to write a cookbook that you’d bookmark the pages, spill sauce on, and grab off the shelf when you needed some Tuesday night inspiration and wanted to eat a healthy but satisfying dinner.
Recipes in this book
The Truly Healthy Vegetarian Cookbook contains over 100 vegetarian recipes from breakfast to dessert. Each recipe is designed to be a healthy balance of carbs, fat, and protein. I’ve been a vegetarian for over ten years, and I know from experience that vegetarian food can often be heavy in carbs. I wanted to provide alternative options for those looking to eat a plant-based diet. From low-carb buffalo cauliflower tacos to protein-packed red lentil bolognese, these are plant-based recipes that are as hearty as they are healthy!
Dietary preferences and substitutions
I’ve created these recipes to be adapted to nearly any kind of diet. Most of the recipes are vegan (or have a vegan option) and many of the recipes can be made gluten-free. Every recipe contains all of the nutritional information so you know exactly what you’re getting for each meal. Each recipe will indicate options for dietary preferences and give you substitution recommendations.
My favorite recipes
A lot of people have asked me what my favorite recipe is and I obviously can’t pick a favorite. However, one of the recipes I loved making was this vegetable pad thai. Most pad thai is made with fish sauce so I wanted to create a vegan substitute that would provide just as much umami flavor. I’m proud of the substitute I came up with and I think you’ll love it! Just look at that rainbow of vegetables!
Of course, the cookbook also contains plenty of hearty salad recipes, oven-baked dinners, vegetable-pasta alternatives, and more. I’ve also included a section of basics for things like salad dressings, sauces, and other staples. Many of these recipes are things I find myself making over and over in my own kitchen. I’m so excited to share them with you!
Wow! Congratulations! The book looks so lovely!
first of all big congratulations to you and really appreciate you making me part of this journey! i am so excited for your book and where it will lead you.
Yay! Congrats! Can’t wait to read it.
I am so happy and excited for you!
We do not eat vegetarian nor vegan in our household, but always love your recipes!
I am always looking for new ways to add more vegetables to our diet. Also, my husband is allergic to fish and seafood, but loves Asian food! Looking forward to your substitute to fish sauce since it seems to be needed in so many of those dishes.
Congratulations! As someone who lives with food allergies I’m always looking for more good recipes. I love your minestrone. I have a hard time with vegetarian/ vegan cooking because of my allergies and being soy intolerant. Thanks for sharing that yummy soup recipe!
Congratulations, Liz! It looks amazing! <3
Congrats! The book looks gorgeous!
Liiiiiizz! Congrats, this is so awesome! How exciting. I can’t wait to check out all the recipes!
I’m glad I get a sneak peek of this book…I took a glance last night and it’s gorgeous…can’t wait to snuggle in with it this weekend!!!
I just pre-ordered your book and I’m pretty excited about it! I’m a little disappointed that the recipe shown in the post has oil but I’m pretty good at adapting recipes so that they are oil free. As you mentioned, so many vegetarian dishes are high in carbs and I try to keep those down to a dull roar so yeah, I’m very excited about your cookbook! Way to go!!
