Eat Sweet, Savory, and Free with Debbie Adler's Mouthwatering Plant-Based Recipes, Free of the Top 8 Allergens

In 2013, Debbie Adler's Sweet Debbie's Organic Treats: Allergy-Free and Vegan Recipes From the Famous Los Angeles Bakery proved that cooking for those with allergies and food sensitivities doesn't mean giving up dessert.

Now Sweet Debbie goes savory with more than 100 plant-based recipes free of the top eight food allergens—dairy, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, wheat, fish, and shellfish—plus free of refined sugar and oils.

Motivated by her own son's life-threatening allergies, Adler has spent the last six years creating meals to nourish and delight her entire family—meals that are both savory and safe—including:

Lemon Basil Blueberry Muffins
Sweet Miso Forbidden Rice Ramen Noodle Bowl
Roasted Butternut Squash Enchilada Rounds
Yam Gnocchi with Sriracha Pesto
Mediterranean Quinoa Burgers
Spanakopita Enchiladas with Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce
Cinnamon Raisin Bread
Cafe Macchiato Sandwich Cookies

Debbie's super satiating, divinely delicious, and accessibly easy-to-prepare recipes show just how incredible, versatile, and flavorful allergy-free, plant-based cooking can be! Her entrees, pastas, soups, sides, breads, and sweets are a guaranteed—and guaranteed safe—hit for school, kids' parties, work events, and more.
