What's your perfect blend?
On her wildly popular recipe blog, Tess Masters aka, The Blender Girl shares easy plant-based recipes that anyone can whip up fast in a blender. Tess's lively, down-to-earth approach has attracted legions of fans looking for quick and fun ways to prepare healthy food. In "The Blender Girl," Tess's much-anticipated debut cookbook, she offers 100 whole-food recipes that are gluten-free and vegan, and rely on natural flavors and sweeteners. Many are also raw and nut-, soy-, corn-, and sugar-free.
Smoothies, soups, and spreads are a given in a blender cookbook, but this surprisingly versatile collection also includes appetizers, salads, and main dishes with a blended component, like Fresh Spring Rolls with Orange-Almond Sauce, Twisted Caesar Pleaser, Spicy Chickpea Burgers with Portobello Buns and Greens, and I-Love-Veggies Bake. And even though many of Tess's smoothies and shakes taste like dessert Apple Pie in a Glass, Raspberry-Lemon Cheesecake, or Tastes-Like-Ice- Cream Kale, anyone? her actual desserts are out-of this-world good, from Chocolate-Chile Banana Spilly to Flourless Triple-Pecan Mousse Pie and Chai Rice Pudding. Best of all, every recipe can easily be adjusted to your personal taste: add an extra squeeze of this, another handful of that, or leave something out altogether these dishes are super forgiving, so you can t mess them up.
Details on the benefits of soaking, sprouting, and dehydrating; proper food combining; and eating raw, probiotic-rich, and alkaline ingredients round out this nutrient-dense guide. But you don t have to understand the science of good nutrition to run with The Blender Girl all you need is a blender and a sense of adventure. So dust off your machine and get ready to find "your" perfect blend.
