By Samah Dada
2021 • Rodale
100+ indulgent meals and treats from the vegan- and keto-friendly rising star, all made with whole, unprocessed ingredients, including viral hits like brookie (brownie/cookie) pie and chocolate chip tahini cake.
Samah Dada doesn’t buy into the all or nothing mentality of healthy eating. By using real, unprocessed ingredients in surprising ways, she shows you how to have your cake and eat it too—because it’s actually made out of chickpeas.
Samah brings the infectious charm that won over Today Show audiences and her social media following alike to her first cookbook, Dada Eats Easy Real Food, where she combines her passions for food, health, and wellness to makeover crave-worthy classics with real ingredients—without sacrificing either indulgence or health. Inspired by her Indian roots as well as Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and European cusines, her fresh takes on your favorite foods require minimal ingredients and steps, and many of the recipes are allergen-free, gluten-free, Whole30- and keto-compliant, and vegan. Samah also provides an easy introduction to alternative flours and sugars and explains how to use them without losing the flavor and joy.
Written in Samah’s approachable, vibrant voice, Easy Real Food makes even the most reluctant and busiest of people want to cook, with beautiful full-color photography and Samah’s takes on 100+ of your favorite foods (80% of the recipes are new to the book, 20% are her biggest online hits), from Masala Scrambled Eggs and Fluffy Pillow Pancakes to Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip and Fudge Brownies. With on-the-go breakfasts, snacks, and desserts that taste so good you’d never know they were made with real ingredients, this is the right place to help you indulge well.
