Whether you’re new to plant-based eating or already a convert, when you cook vegan with Charity Morgan, private chef to elite athletes and rock stars, you may be leaving out the meat, dairy, and eggs, but you won’t be missing out on the flavor and indulgence of all your favorite comfort foods.
In her highly anticipated first cookbook, Charity lays out a plan for anyone who wants to eat less meat—whether they are looking to go completely vegan or just be a little bit more meat-free. Pulling inspiration from her Puerto Rican and Creole heritage as well as from the American South, where she lives with her family, Charity’s recipes are full of flavor. Think Smoky Jambalaya; hearty Jerk-Spiced Lentils with Coconut Rice & Mango Salsa; Jalapeño-Bae’con Corn Cakes with Chili-Lime Maple Syrup; and a molten, decadent Salted Caramel Apple Crisp.
Unbelievably Vegan offers more than 100 recipes for living a meat-free life without giving up your favorite comfort foods. Charity guides readers on how to use oyster mushrooms to stand in for chicken and how to spice walnuts to taste like chorizo! She proves that vegan food can be fun, filling, healthy, and above all else unbelievably delicious.
