Good Clean Food: Super Simple Plant-Based Recipes for Every Day by Lily Kunin

Genre: Cookbook
Publisher: Abrams
Release Date: March 7, 2017



Good Clean Food's author admits from the start that while her plant-based diet truly improved her quality of life, it may not have the same effect on everyone. I appreciate that honesty. That said, I also do feel that many of the recipes in her cookbook and healthy-eating guide have incredible merit.

The book begins with a bit of insight into why she opted to start eating this way. The personal stories add depth to the cookbook and drew me in. Next up is a list of equipment you need to create the recipes within, such as a blender, food processor, and strainer. From there it goes into the ingredients that should always be on hand.

Once these informational sections are done, she dives right into the recipes. Recipes are suitable to both vegetarians and vegans. You'll learn how to make plant-based milks, like almond milk or hazelnut-hemp milk. Some have ingredients that may be difficult to find in your area. I've never seen wakame in stores and ran into my local health food store to learn they don't have it either. It would have to be purchased online.

Some recipes didn't impress me (mainly due to the ingredients that I simply don't enjoy or have allergies to), while others did. The sweet potato hash is delicious. We also adored the sesame noodle bowls with pan-fried tofu. In addition to food recipes, there are beauty product recipes like coconut mint hair treatment and a detox bath. For those recipes alone, this book is well worth the meager asking price.

  1. Tracy, I'm resorting to this comment as a way to contact you. I see nothing about submitting work for review on the blog. How does one do that? I'm following Peter Rennebohm's BLUE SPRINGS book review

  2. Information is on the left side. Requesting a Review
    Thanks to the many publishers, authors and Netgalley who bring books to the attention of readers everywhere. My time for reviewing is limited, and I find it is easiest to track reviews via Netgalley, so I prefer that method for reviews. roundtablereviews at gmail dot com.
