The irrepressible voice of seasoned author Isa Chandra Moskowitz comes through loud and clear in this bright, breezy and very accessible recipe collection. Moskowitz wisely keeps ingredients lists short in her recipes, which rely largely on pantry-friendly staples, but she usefully gives tips on the sorts of ingredients that will elevate a dish from mediocre to must-make-again: nutritional yeast, kala namak (black salt), nori and the like. These are vegan recipes that go way beyond lentil stew, just as the author promises.
