A celebration of multigenerational Latin cooking for the plant-based home cook—guaranteed to bring both older and younger generations to the table.
It can be difficult to have multiple generations in the kitchen, each with their own ideas on food, but Abuela’s Plant-Based Kitchen puts them on the same page. Inspired by her upbringing in two culinary worlds—vegetarian and Puerto Rican—holistic health coach Karla Salinari reintroduces traditional Latin and Caribbean recipes with whole, high-quality, plant-based ingredients.
Abuela's Plant-Based Kitchen offers seventy-five plant-based recipes that marry the comfort of nostalgic, cultural dishes with the modern desire for healthy, at-home cooking. Paired with personal stories, tips, and tricks for success, Salinari makes ingredients such as chickpea water, tempeh, and tofu approachable for those new to plant-based cooking, while empowering readers to take charge of their health through plant-based nutrition. Delicious plant-based dishes include:
- Garbanzo stew with plantain balls (garbazos guisados)
- Papaya and tomato salad
- Cuban-style picadillo
- Flan de coco
- And so much more!
Abuela’s Plant-Based Kitchen honors the richness of Latin and Caribbean cooking and proves that you don’t need to miss out on easy, flavorful meals to eat well.
