Book - Mostly Plants: 101 Delicious Flexitarian Recipes
“Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.” With these seven words, Michael Pollan brother of Lori, Dana, and Tracy Pollan, and son of Corky started a national conversation about how to eat for optimal health. A decade later, the value of a plant-based diet is widely accepted and yet for many people, easier said than done.
So what does choosing “mostly plants” look like in real life In families where not everyone is on the same vegetarian page the word “mostly” is key. The point isn’t necessarily to give up meat entirely but to build a diet that shifts the ratio of animal to plants to create delicious and nutritious meals sure to appeal to everyone.
There has never been a better time to cook with vegetables and to move plants to the center of the American plate. Even if plants weren’t the better choice for your health, they make the case for themselves purely on the basis of deliciousness.
This approach to eating also known as a flexitarian diet strikes the best balance on our plates between flavor and pleasure, and nutrition and sustainability. In Mostly Plants, readers will find inventive and unexpected ways to focus on cooking with vegetables dishes such as Crispy Kale and Potato Hash with Fried Eggs; Tandoori Chicken and Vegetable Sheet Pan Supper; Salmon Farro Bowl; and Roasted Tomato Soup with Gruyere Chickpea “Croutons”. Here are recipes that keep the spotlight on the vegetables, at a time when the quality of fresh produce has never been better.
In Mostly Plants readers will find recipes that satisfy or can be adapted to almost all dietary needs; vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, and dairy free. And the best part: many of these dishes can be on the table in 35 minutes or less! With skillet-to-oven recipes, sheet pan suppers, one-pot meals and more, this is real cooking for real life: meals that are wholesome, delectable and mostly plants.
