Encouraging chefs to savor the cooking process, this collection of recipes provides distinctive meals using fresh, flavorful ingredients. Drawing from a variety of influences, it features diverse, innovative vegan dishes, ranging from well-known favorites such as Buttermilk Biscuits with Southern Style Gravy and Barbecue Ranch Salad to more exotic fare such as Palm Heart Ceviche and Italian Cornmeal Cake with Roasted Apricots and Coriander Crème Anglaise. A wider culinary horizon with internationally inspired dishes is offered—ideal for creating cuisine that allows people, animals, and the environment to thrive. With planned menus for all occasions; clear symbols for raw, low-fat, soy-free, and wheat-free recipes; and a section on making basics such as seitan and nondairy milks, this is an essential handbook for those interested in cooking the very best vegan food.

Praise For Cook, Eat, Thrive

“Gives vegans the option of choosing exotic and extraordinary recipes for special dinner preparations or simpler yet imaginative creations for day-to-day meal planning. Whether you're looking for everyday vegan fare or exquisite vegan dining, Tienzo serves it up with culinary flair!”  —Dreena Burton, author, Eat, Drink, & Be Vegan

“Every time I look at glossy food photography, I think of Joy's cookbook and how she's already managed a stellar vegan version of it. Veganism discovers its abundance in here.” Dino Sarma, author, Alternative Vegan
