Nisha Melvani appreciates that it’s hard for many people to commit to being 100% vegan. But committing to one vegan meal a day—dinner—is much more feasible. For those trying to incorporate more vegan meals into your diet, Practically Vegan is your go-to weeknight dinner cookbook and the perfect entry to veganism.
A registered dietitian nutritionist, Melvani offers solid, tested vegan recipes and a non-militant approach for those wanting to eat less meat. Plant-based cooking will no longer feel intimidating with easy-to-find ingredients that you will use in the kitchen over and over again. Inspired by the flavors she was introduced to while growing up in Jamaica, England, and Canada, as well as her own Indian heritage, Melvani shares over 100 delicious recipes, including Creamy One-Pot Cheesy Broccoli Pasta Soup, Cauliflower-Sweet Potato Curry, Sesame Noodle Veggie Stir-Fry, Mushroom Bourguignon, and more, accompanied by a foreword written by bestselling author Jonathan Safran Foer, who urged Melvani to write this cookbook after feeding his family her recipes.
With easy-to-follow directions and recipe substitutions as well as culinary tips and tricks, Practically Vegan will be the helping hand you need to prepare a vegan dinner for yourself or your family with confidence.
