Product Description


"Myra Goodman and daughter Marea have pulled together more than 90 farm-to-fork recipes for everything from new-wave tabbouleh made with quinoa, to grilled fig sandwiches with roasted pistachio pesto and balsamic caramelized onions. It's billed as a vegan cookbook, but it's the type of fresh, appealing, veggie-centric fare that will appeal to omnivores, vegetarians and foodarians of every persuasion." - San Jose Mercury News

"Between the recipes, there are helpful guides that explain why it's important to choose organic foods and the health benefits of including nuts and beans in your diet; there's a good mix of easy recipes and dishes that are weekend cooking projects." - The Oregonian

"This isn't a cookbook aimed solely at's an open-arms invitation to everyone to see just how delicious vegan dishes can be and how easy it is to incorporate them into your weekly meals. With this book in your kitchen, Meatless Mondays will become a whole lot more interesting. Who knows, the recipes just might convince you to go vegan all the way." - Epicurious

"The recipes play with a lot of spices and pull inspiration from worldwide cuisines. This means we get a teriyaki stir-fry spin on "broccoli with wild rice" and spicy tamales stuffed with kale and butternut squash. A lot of attention has been paid to seasoning and saucing, ensuring that every recipe cooked from this book feels completely satisfying." - The Kitchn

"The recipes in Straight from the Earth reflect years of producing, harvesting, and cooking locally sourced ingredients. The book is a necessary reference for anyone looking to find unique alternatives to meat-based dishes." - The Daily Meal

"Straight from the Earth offers dozens of plant-based recipes that utilize whole foods to create meals that are nothing short of amazing." - The Vegan Mom

"Myra and Marea are an inspirational team offering insights into cooking as well as to how a family can come together to create something truly beautiful. They don't preach to us about plant-based diets, but rather invite us to their table to enjoy, as they do, food that is not only straight from the earth but also from the heart." - Oldways

Amazing cookbook! These ladies did an amazing job coming up with delicious vegan dishes. I just wish it came in hardcover because the spine is starting to go from so much use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this cookbook -- great recipes (that are vegan too!) March 4 2014
By Nina108 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am not a vegan, but I have been trying to reduce my meat consumption to improve my health and the health of the environment. Several friends suggested I purchase one of Myra Goodman's cookbooks, as her recipes are wonderful and not too difficult. I decided to take a chance and order this one that she wrote with her daughter, as there is no meat and dairy in any of the recipes. I am glad I did!

After testing out the cookbook I have to say I don't miss the animal products because the food tastes delicious. The cookbook itself is lovely in my hands and there is page after page of color photos. The meals are welcoming.

This cookbook has many delicious recipes, and I will tell you my favorites so far: The Thai Fresh Spring Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce is great. I have shared this recipe with my friends who loved it too.

For breakfast I recommend the Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes and the Quinoa Banana Skillet Cakes--Yum!! As a hearty meal I enjoyed the Seared Polenta with Spicy Heirloom Tomato Sauce; and the Four Bean & Sweet Potato Chili with Skillet Corn Bread. For dessert I loved the Coconut Almond & Raspberry Jam Thumbprint Cookies, and the Very Chocolaty Chocolate Brownies. These vegan desserts are very tasty (I don't miss the dairy at all)!

Glad to have found Straight From the Earth. I am happy and inspired!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book!! March 9 2014
By Dan Martinson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Let me start off by saying I am not a vegan, and up until recently, I was about the farthest thing from it. I've never considered myself to be anything close to a "health-nut," but when my wife and I learned that vegan food has NO cholesterol at all, she was quick to buy this book to give it a try (despite my high cholesterol, I've never been able to resist the fatty foods and snacks). I was hesitant at first, but when my wife first made the Plantain tacos with black beans and mango salsa, I quickly changed my tune. I never knew how satisfying plant-based recipes could be, and I found myself not even missing the meat that my meals were usually based around. Since then, I've been hooked. I'm not much of a cook, but that's doesn't stop me from trying. Each new recipe I try from this book makes me more and more excited to try a new one (plus my wife doesn't mind me taking over the kitchen to cook meals for the two of us most nights). While I still indulge in my former carnivorous behavior during the day, my dinners have become predominantly plant-based, all thanks to this book. I never knew that vegan food could be so delicious and simple to make at the same time! Even though my cholesterol is back on track, I find myself utilizing this book nonetheless. I have even started trying out my own plant-based dishes inspired by recipes from this book. I could not be more thankful for this book, it has gotten me to eat healthy without making any sacrifices. I wish I could give it 6 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars really wonderful March 22 2014
By ez1 - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought Straight from the Earth at the Earthbound Farmstand in Carmel Valley, California. Having tried more than a few of the recipes, I can honestly say that this is now one of my favorite cookbooks. The book itself is soft cover and easy to keep open on whatever page you need. The photographs are fabulous. And best of all, the recipes are really really good. They are creative, healthy, uncomplicated, easy to follow, and use ingredients that are readily available. I made the baked sweet potato fries and crispy kale chips for my finicky grandchildren, and they were gone in an instant. That says a lot! I love the three color hummus, the seared polenta and spicy tomato sauce and the lentil potato curry. Last night, the pasta puttanesca was a huge hit for dinner. Of all the great recipes, my favorite is the stone fruit crumble. I could eat it every day! So delicious! I like this cookbook so much that as soon as I finish writing this review, I will be purchasing several more as gifts for friends and family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooray for delicious, plant based meals...! March 5 2014
By papajack - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is awesome!!!

While I am an omnivore, I try to eat more plant based and organic foods whenever possible. In the past, I have sometimes struggled to enjoy some of the vegan food that I have eaten.

This book changes that equation. The recipes are delicious and satisfying for omnivores and vegans alike.

From the Polenta with Heirloom Tomato Sauce and the Eccentric Caesar salad, to the incredible Chocolate Brownies (seriously, you have to try these!!!), this book contains a wealth of recipes that will have carnivores and vegans celebrating at the table together.

Thanks Myra and Marea. I now have the tools to add more plant based food to my diet, so I can eat healthier and BE healthier
