Love Real Food: More Than 100 Feel-Good Vegetarian Favorites to Delight the Senses and Nourish the Body

The path to a healthy body and happy belly is paved with real food—fresh, wholesome, sustainable food—and it doesn’t need to be so difficult. No one knows this more than Kathryne Taylor of America’s most popular vegetarian food blog, Cookie + Kate. With Love Real Food, she offers more than 100 approachable and outrageously delicious meatless recipes complete with substitutions to make meals special diet–friendly (gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free) whenever possible. Her book is designed to show everyone—vegetarians, vegans, and meat-eaters alike—how to eat well and feel well.

With brand-new, creative recipes, Taylor inspires you to step into the kitchen and cook wholesome plant-based meals, again and again. She’ll change your mind about kale and quinoa, and show you how to make the best granola you’ve ever tasted. You’ll find make-your-own instant oatmeal mix and fluffy, naturally sweetened, whole-grain blueberry muffins; hearty green salads and warming soups; pineapple pico de gallo; healthier homemade pizzas; and even a few favorites from the blog. Of course, Love Real Food wouldn’t be complete without plenty of stories starring Taylor’s veggie-obsessed, rescue dog sous-chef, Cookie! Taylor celebrates whole foods by encouraging you not just to “eat this,” but to eat like this. Take it from her readers: you’ll love how you feel.

I’m not a vegetarian, but I love this cookbook. 🙂 I am not a vegetarian — but I absolutely love Kathryne’s recipes. Prior to being a blog fan of Cookie and Kate, meat was central to most of my meals and veggies were an after thought. Now, I am happy to report, she was a cornerstone of how I changed my eating habits and vegetables have become a main focus of my meals. Her recipes are thorough and she always provides alternate substitutions to accommodate different diets — my son is allergic to tree nuts so this is especially helpful. And I…

The best vegetarian cookbook! I absolutely love this cookbook! I’ve been a huge fan of the Cookie and Kate blog for a couple of years, and it was like Christmas morning when my pre-ordered copy arrived. The book stays true to everything I love about the blog: delicious, unique recipes that are attainable and so carefully perfected. I’ve made about 10 of the recipes so far, and every single one has been outrageous. As a vegetarian with a non-vegetarian husband and 19-month-old daughter, the true test for me are meals that…
