Coming in hot this Fast Friday with a quick review of “The Colorful Family Table” cookbook. Now that we are all at home and looking for ways to spice up our daily family meals, a cookbook like this one is a welcome addition to any kitchen. Ilene Godofsky Moreno, health coach and mom of 2 designed these plant based meals to be “colorful not complicated”. I received a copy of the her book in exchange for an honest review.
Colorful Family Table Cookbook Review
I find it can be a challenge to get the rest of my family on board with more plant based meals. The recipes here are created from simple and very familiar vegetables. Instructions are easy to follow and not time consuming. Just what we want in a recipe. I love that Ilene has divided her cookbook into seasons making it much easier to plan meals.
Winter recipes offer veggie packed stews and soups. The loaded cauliflower baked potato soup (p.85) is right up my alley and a perfect way to sneak in some cauliflower. All photos courtesy of the author/publisher.
I am a huge sweet potato fan and this Miso Tahini Sweet Potato & Tofu Grilled Cheese (p. 40) is screaming my name. So much simpler than they look.
Chickpea artichoke “crab cakes” (p. 156) are such a fun summer BBQ idea for plant based eaters. I cannot wait to try these out.
Who is The Colorful Family Table designed for? You! Even if you are not a plant based eater, adding some more plant based meals to your family’s diet is always a bonus. Ready to check out some of the recipes for yourself? Enter my giveaway below. Thanks, good luck and Bon Appetit!
