Note "100 gluten-free, vegan recipes"--Cover.
Summary This is the debut cookbook from the blogger behind theblendergirl.com, featuring 100 gluten-free, vegan recipes for smoothies, meals, and more made quickly and easily in a blender. What's your perfect blend? On her wildly popular recipe blog, the author shares easy plant-based recipes that anyone can whip up fast in a blender. In this book, her debut cookbook, she offers 100 whole-food recipes that are gluten-free and vegan, and rely on natural flavors and sweeteners. Many are also raw and nut-, soy-, corn-, and sugar-free. Smoothies, soups, and spreads are a given in a blender cookbook, but this collection also includes appetizers, salads, and main dishes with a blended component, like Fresh Spring Rolls with Orange-Almond Sauce, Twisted Caesar Pleaser, Spicy Chickpea Burgers with Portobello Buns and Greens, and I-Love-Veggies! Bake. And even though many of the smoothies and shakes taste like dessert such as Apple Pie in a Glass, Raspberry-Lemon Cheesecake, or Tastes-Like-Ice-Cream Kale, her actual desserts include Chocolate-Chile Banana Spilly, Flourless Triple-Pecan Mousse Pie, and Chai Rice Pudding. Every recipe can easily be adjusted to your personal taste: add an extra squeeze of this, another handful of that, or leave something out altogether, these dishes are super forgiving, so you can't mess them up. Details on the benefits of soaking, sprouting, and dehydrating; proper food combining; and eating raw, probiotic-rich, and alkaline ingredients round out this nutrient-dense guide. But you don't have to understand the science of good nutrition, all you need is a blender and a sense of adventure. -- Provided by publisher.
