Moskowitz has a high level of justifiable fame in the vegan community, but if you're new to her books (or to plant-based cooking) this is the one to grab. The recipes are funny, fresh, delicious, and no-nonsense (no fiddling with garnishes or expensive one-time-use ingredients here). There are beautiful, helpful photographs for almost every recipe and the funny headnotes are not to be missed.

Some of my favorites are the Marbled Banana Bread, Stew with Dilly Dumplings, and the Jerk Sloppy Joes with Coconut-Creamed Spinach! Perfect for any cook in your life looking for inspiration and vegan neophytes alike.
