The cookbook showcases how to get the maximum enjoyment from foods by using different seasonings and cooking techniques in over 100 simple recipes that offer indulgence and balance all at once. Affordability and accessibility is key, too, and these tasty, comforting and hearty meals are designed to bring excitement to the palate.

Expect lots of colour, texture and flavour, with combinations of spice and freshness, creamy and crunchy, umami, sweet and sour. Dishes include Spiced Buckwheat Porridge, Red Lentil Dahl, Curry-Infused Quinoa with Herbed Black Lentils, Veggie Tacos with Five-Seed Slaw, Planty Paella, Peanut Butter Cookies and Chocolate Bark with Dried Cherries and Almond Flakes.

Get a taster of the book by trying recipes for Black Bean and Beet Burgers, Chickpea and Chocolate Chip Cookies; and Chocolate Banana Bread, shared on the Meat Free Monday website courtesy of Leah Vanderveldt and Ryland Peters & Small.
