Over 85 Recipeas, One Very Happy Family

When Sarah Matheny, creator of the popular blog Peas and Thank You, decided to eliminate animal products from her diet, she knew there'd be skeptics. Her husband was raised on the standard American diet. Her grandpa was a butcher. Her mom was the best home cook around, with a generous pat of butter here and a crumble of bacon there. But now Sarah is a mom who wants to feed her children right.

Out went the diet soda. In came the smoothies.

Out went the "nutrition" bars. In came the nutritious cookies.

Out went a tired, caffeine–fueled mom. In came Mama Pea.

Peas and Thank You is a collection of recipes and stories from a mainstream family eating a not–so–mainstream diet. Filled with healthy and delicious versions of foods we've all grown up enjoying, but with a Mama Pea twist—no meat, lots of fresh ingredients and plenty of nutrition for growing Peas. From wholesome breakfasts to mouth–watering desserts, there's plenty here to satisfy the pickiest Peas in your life. It's easier than ever to whip up crowd–pleasing meals that will have the whole family asking for, "more, Peas."

Review:

"Former attorney turned mommy blogger Matheny's collection of over 85 meatless recipes manages to inform and irritate in equal measure, proving that what works in a blog doesn't always translate to the page. However, offering vegan-friendly dishes for all tastes and mealtimes gives the collection breadth and depth, particularly when dietary and ingredient restrictions are taken into account. While Matheny includes the expected recipes for smoothies, guacamole, African peanut stew, and tempeh chili, she also offers vegan-esque takes on French toast, Reuben sandwiches, lentil-based meatballs, homemade tortillas, Thai veggie burgers, and mango cupcakes with coconut cream icing. Even carnivores will want to try her flavorful Thai crunch salad, cashew carrot ginger soup, and Indian shepherd's pie. To get to these recipes though, readers must wade through a few too many shots of her daughters in dance costumes, long-winded stories only tangentially related to the dish, and references to Matheny's husband as 'Pea Daddy.' If readers can get past the cutesiness, they'll find practical, tasty vegan fare along with helpful nutritional information and clear directions. "

Absolutely love this book! The writing is witty and the recipes are wonderful. This is one of the most readable cookbooks I've found, rather than a dry compilation of recipes. The author has two young children & a husband nourished and thriving off of these vegan recipes and she provides this tangible resource to make anyone able and willing to follow her lead. As an omnivore myself, I cannot wait to go through each "recipea" and try them because this cookbook really shows how much you don't miss out on by skipping the meat. Don't bypass simply because the word "meatless" throws you off, give it a go because you won't be disappointed.
