Hello Friends!! I am back again with another plant-based cookbook review! I am excited to share my review with you all for The Everything Plant-Based Meal Prep Cookbook: 200 Easy, Make-Ahead Recipes Featuring Plant-Based Ingredients by Diane K. Smith. The cookbook is easy to read and follow and focuses on recipes that are easy to plan, prep for, make ahead to put in the fridge for the week or frozen for future meals.

This is a great cookbook for anyone thinking or wanting to switch to more of a plant-based diet and is a little overwhelmed where to start. It’s great for anyone looking for recipes for those meatless days or for anyone who follows a plant based-diet looking for tips and recipes that are easy, fresh, and exciting. Diane K Smith shares with us the benefits of a plant-based diet and explains what foods can be substituted for protein and dairy. Even now after following a plant-based diet for a couple of years, I struggle with adding protein to my meals and need reminding what I can use. I enjoyed flipping through the recipes and making notes of the ones I want to make and planning which ones I want to make a little extra or make ahead for the freezer. Diane K Smith makes that easy with the tips she includes with the recipes.

There are over 200 recipes here that included colourful vegetables and appealing protein. The easy recipes cover every meal of the day and include meal-worthy salads, comforting soups, and stews, side dishes, sauces, and condiments to kick up your meals a notch and desserts.

There are so many I want to mention but here are a few that caught my eye to try very soon.

Black Bean Breakfast Tacos

Raspberry Scone Muffins

Asian Noodle Salad

Falafel Burgers (can use them for) Greek Spinach Salad 

Curried Red Lentil Soup

Lasagna Soup

Spaghetti with Black Bean Meatballs

Penne Pasta with Roasted Vegetables

AND many more 

I received a copy from the publisher through NetGalley so I am unable to show some pictures of the book but the photos are appealing! It is one I am putting on my cookbook wishlist! I highly recommend it!!

    That is a beautiful book of such fresh creations.
    I like that she has some frozen options in the recipes we need that.
    First thing I would make is Asian noodle salad 😁
