I’ve known fellow nutritionist Heather Nicholds for almost a decade now, ever since she first interviewed me for an online summit about healthy eating.

Since then, I’ve shared many of Heather’s events and recipes, including this stellar Black Bean Burger, this “Six Degrees” interview and this quick and easy Parsley Quinoa Tabbouleh from her book, Protein from Plants. Heather’s recipes are always easy to prepare, delicious, and a huge hit with RH readers.

Today, I’m excited to share a recipe from Heather’s new book, Plant Based Meal Plan: A 3-Week Kick-Start Guide to Eat and Live Your Best. The book provides a full meal plan with recipes for a 3-week transition to eating more plant-based foods, and so much more, too!
