As I sat down to begin this review, I took a quick survey on the blog and realized that this is my 9th blog post either reviewing one of Nava Atlas’s books or posting one of her recipes. Obviously, I love this woman’s work.
But now I think it’s only fair to disclose that, over the past few years, I’ve actually become friends with Nava, too, and so I may not be the most biased reviewer. But given my previous effusive posts about each of the other books I reviewed in the past, it’s clear that Nava’s cookbooks have been an inspiration to me for a very long time.
Plant Power is much more than a cookbook, however. The first part of the book is devoted to an inclusive look at what it means to become “plant-based,” and how to accomplish that goal. There’s nothing prescriptive in this book; just straightforward, engaging, and well-written information. Whether you’ve been an avowed vegan for decades or you’re just plant-curious, there’s plenty for you to love in this book.
