Every section has a gorgeously designed title page with little tips and tidbits:


There are step-by-step photos for some of the recipes – including this Crispy Baked Eggplant which is my healthier version of eggplant parmesan. I used hemp seeds and sunflower seeds instead of parmesan and it’s SO delicious – I can’t wait for you to try it!


Breakfast staples in our house – carrot cookies and these Vegan Carrot Waffles:

  20. Friend! Thank you so so much for allowing me to play a part in the creation of your beautiful book. It means the world that you trusted me with your vision and I had the most wonderful time collaborating with you and Jack for those two weeks last spring. It is such a thrill to see if all come to life and I’m so excited for you guys! Job well done! xx!!

  31. Denise

    When by the bookstore to pick it up today! Ended up sitting in the aisle, surrounded by stacks of books on shelves, flipping through your cookbook for a good two hours, just reading and taking the beauty of it all in. Can’t wait to get cracking in the kitchen, the book is fantastic. Super stoked for you about this publication!

  32. Phanie from

    congratulations!!!!! i’ve been following you for a good while now, using many of your recipes to feed my family. thank you so much for all your hard work 😀

    xoxo Phanie

  33. Johanna Woodbury

    I pre-ordered too… Can’t wait!

  34. Jen Smith

    I just received your cookbook and am SO excited! This is the first time I have purchased a cook book and am legitimately excited to cook just about everything in it. My photog hubby also appreciates the beautiful pictures. I also love how it is organized by main ingredient AND season. This is absolutely wonderful.

    As a side note, have you considered partnering with any of the meal delivery services (ex – Blue Apron, Hello Fresh, etc)? Some of them could use some serious help with their vegetarian meals. (And I would be the first to sign up if they were your recipes).

  35. Annette

    I bought your cookbook on Sat and have thoroughly enjoyed looking through it. What a gorgeous book. Congratulation! I made your poblano quesadillas tonight. Easy and delicious!

  36. This looks so beautiful!!! Can’t wait to get my hands on this, I can tell there is some heavy duty inspiration in here!

  37. Zilia

    I LOVE your blog and I’m so excited about your new book! Can’t wait until it gets here :-))))

  38. Heidi

    Book arrived! Love it!! Will start cooking out of it this week…thanks!

  39. Jeff

    So excited to get the cookbook and have already tried a couple of recipes that my 7 year old said were awesome. The way it is organized is great since we usually buy what looks good at the farmer’s market and then try to figure out what to do with it when we get home.

    • Jeanine Donofrio

      Hi Jeff, ha, I’m so glad your family has been enjoying the recipes 🙂

  40. Natalie Fladager

    Just got my cookbook and its so beautiful! I made the quiona mexican salad and it was lovely:)

    • Jeanine Donofrio

      Hi Natalie, thank you! I’m so glad you liked the quinoa salad!

  41. Gillian

    Hi! I also live in Austin and was wondering if your cookbook is sold anywhere locally? I’d love to pick it up somewhere here 🙂

    • Jeanine Donofrio

      Hi Gillian, it’s at Metier Cook’s supply on South First right now 🙂
