The next section describes the basics for setting up a WFPB kitchen. This section includes kitchen neccesities, grocery shopping, and cooking techniques. The next section is the most important the recipes. There is a huge variety of recipes. They are all very flavorful and some are easy to make. I tried a few and enjoyed everything I made. I am not good at cooking so this is saying something. The recipes are also labeled with dietary restrictions which is important for me since I'm gluten free. My favorite recipe I made was the Mint Brownie Date Bars. These tasted amazing and were very easy to make. The only thing was I needed to add more dates than the recipe said to get the right consistency. I recommend this for anyone looking for whole food plant based recipes. I am excited to try out more of these recipes. Thank you NetGalley and Callisto Media for The WFPB Cookbook.

    I am really impressed with this book. It's not just a cookbook, it's a guide to Plant Based Eating. It explains the plant based lifestyle and talks specifically about all of the ingredients, not just vegetables but grains, spices, and other products. There is a conversion chart for swaps, such as what to use instead of eggs and oils. There is a guide to your plant based kitchen that tells you not just what to buy, but also how to stock and store it, and what tools to have on hand.

Cooking and chopping techniques are also included. The recipes include Breakfasts and Smoothies, Salads and Sandwiches, Soups and Stews, Mains, Snacks and Treats, and Staples. The Pina Colada Smoothie Bowl, Green Goddess Sandwich, and Morroccan inspired Chickpea Stew have caught my eye, as well as Creamy Mushroom Pizza, Lentil Sloppy Joes, and Tahini Ginger Cookies. Staples incude Mocha Walnut Cashew Butter and Creamy Mushroom Gravy. As I navigate a new way of eating, this is an extremely helpful resource. My review is voluntary. I received a free digital copy of this book from Callisto Media, however, I will be buying a hard copy because this is a valuable resource that will help me as I learn more about this way of eating.

    While I am not completely plant based, I love Justin's book so far! My plan is to add plant based recipes to my diet and I believe this book will help me meet that goal! This is a great guide for anybody just getting into the WFPB way of living or someone who is experienced. I've only made one recipe but that one was easy to follow and delish! I especially like the substitution notes throughout the book because you don't always have all the ingredients on hand that's required.

    Originally published on my blog: Nonstop Reader. The WFPB Cookbook is a tutorial guide and recipe collection for plant based whole food cooking by Justin Weber. Released 11th Aug 2020 by Callisto on their Rockridge Press imprint, it's 210 pages (for the print version) in paperback and ebook formats. It's worth noting that the ebook format has a handy interactive table of contents as well as interactive links. I've really become enamored of ebooks with interactive formats lately. For Kindle Un Originally published on my blog: Nonstop Reader. The WFPB Cookbook is a tutorial guide and recipe collection for plant based whole food cooking by Justin Weber. Released 11th Aug 2020 by Callisto on their Rockridge Press imprint, it's 210 pages (for the print version) in paperback and ebook formats. It's worth noting that the ebook format has a handy interactive table of contents as well as interactive links. I've really become enamored of ebooks with interactive formats lately. For Kindle Unlimited subscribers, this book is currently included in the KU subscription library to borrow and read for free. The introduction covers the basics of whole food unprocessed cooking and essential accessories as well as an intro to the whole foods diet, tips, ingredients, tools, supplies, and how-to. The following chapters include the recipes arranged roughly by category: breakfasts & smoothies, salads & sandwiches, soups & stews, mains, snacks & treats, and staples and partial recipes used as ingredients in other recipes. Ingredient measurements are supplied in American standard measurements only. There's a conversion chart for metric measures included in the back of the book along with a short resource and links list for further reading. The nutritional information: fat, carbs, protein, fiber content, macronutrients, etc are listed for the recipes as well as serving sizes. Each recipe has a header with special labels such as nut-free, gluten-free, one pot, along with a short description of the recipe and approximate prep-times. Extra tips or recipe alternatives are listed in text boxes in the recipes. The recipes themselves are fairly straightforward and are made for the most part with easily sourced ingredients. Many are very simple, none of them are overly complex. The photography is not abundant; most of the recipes are not illustrated, but the photographs which are included are clear and well done. I wish there had been more photographs and serving suggestions, but I do understand that extra photography increases the price of book projects very quickly. This is a large collection of recipes and even allowing for the fact that some of them are very similar to others in the same category, this will keep vegetarian cooking fans going for ages. These are simple "everyday" recipes which are anything but boring. We tried several dishes and all of them were tasty and well written. (We didn't try any of the sweets or dessert recipes, but I found no glaring errors with a quick read-through). We're definitely going to try more of these recipes. Well written book, tasty recipes. Four stars. This is a solid recipe book which will be used. It would make a superlative housewarming gift to a friend or family member living on their own - college student, new graduate, newlyweds, kids flying the nest, etc or a friend trying to eat more health consciously with better quality plant based ingredients. Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

And, if you have a dedicated meat eater in your home, you can easily add meat and other animal products (like REAL cheese!!!) and still makes their tummies happy as well.

    Thanks to NetGalley and Callisto Media/Rockridge Press for the digital galley of this book. So. What the heck is WFPB, anyway? It stands for Whole Food, Plant Based diet, and it’s chocked full of “fresh produce, whole grains, and rich natural flavor” (publisher’s summary). I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate healthy cooking into my meal prep, and the older I get, the less meat I try to eat overall. I don’t think I’ll ever give it up completely, but I do enjoy trying to eat more plant b Thanks to NetGalley and Callisto Media/Rockridge Press for the digital galley of this book. So.

I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate healthy cooking into my meal prep, and the older I get, the less meat I try to eat overall. I don’t think I’ll ever give it up completely, but I do enjoy trying to eat more plant based meals. When author Justin Weber’s son was born, he wanted to not only be alive to enjoy his son’s growing up, but he wanted to be an active father. Weber weighed close to 400 pounds and was on the path to type 2 diabetes in his 30s. After losing weight, he realized that a whole food, plant based diet made him feel more healthy and whole. You’ll find background info on this approach, not as a fad diet, but as a holistic approach to nutrition. The beginning has a handy table of plant-based swaps for animal proteins as well as sugars, salts and oils. There’s also a handy intro to plant based foods to help you familiarize yourself with your new pantry as well as tips to organize your kitchen. Finally, the fun part. There are 100 recipes that follow this, approach, and I love Weber’s, “keep it simple,” model. I meal prep everything, and cooking for one, I really do try to keep things as simple as possible, to avoid waste at buying ingredients I’ve never heard of only to use them in a single dish. I’m bad a breakfast, but veggie breakfast hash sounds great for dinner to me. There are plenty of sandwiches and salads, perfect for easy, tasty, healthy lunches. I can’t wait to try the chickpea and avocado salad (two of my personal food staples). We are well into soup season, so I can’t wait to add the ones in here to my winter routine. As a rule, I’m pretty bad at making desserts, but all of these look super tasty, so I might have to give it a go. Also, it was probably a mistake to read this cookbook on the tail-end of my Saturday work shift when lunch was hours ago and it’s still a couple of hours before I can leave and get dinner, oops! This one is out now if you’re looking for some new recipes to try and want to eat less meat and animal products.

    A lot of times when one is delving into an area that they are not familiar with (e.g. veganism) it can be very intimidating and overwhelming. Justin takes your hand and walks you through so it is simple to understand. You can feel his genuine desire to make the world a better place, one amazing dish at a time. The cookbook is broken down in a way that can really guide a novice cook as well as a handy reference for more experienced cooks who need a meal in a hurry.

The color coded guide is broken down into 5-ingredient / Gluten-free / No Cook / Nut-Free / One Pot / Quick The recipes are easy to follow and some have tips like- make this sauce and put it on everything all week long! Things that can really help out for the weekday evening meal prep. The substitution notes are helpful as well for those of us who don't necessarily want to invest in new pantry staples (e.g. no tamari? sub with soy sauce or coconut aminos!). Full disclosure- I am not vegan (please no hate mail). I enjoy living vegetarian mostly with some good meat dishes thrown in here and there... and I have LOVED every recipe I have made so far. All in all a very comprehensive guide and cookbook for those looking for healthy plant based recipes who may otherwise be a little overwhelmed at making dietary changes in their lives. I received an advanced copy of this cookbook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Whole food plant based recipe book seemed to be missing pictures. I love looking at recipe books but for me to really want a cookbook I’m going to need to see proof these dishes have been made. What did I like? After realizing there were no pictures, I lost interest. A majority of Americans rarely eat more than ten different vegetables so the process of this book was to show meal based recipes plant based. Not being able to see the finished dishes is going to slow my need for these recipes. Some Whole food plant based recipe book seemed to be missing pictures.

Makes it hard with no pictures. I just have a hard time cooking stuff that I never had before because let’s face it, if it doesn’t turn out edible it goes in the trash. Pictures at least give you an idea that it looks tasty. I received a copy to read and voluntarily left an opinion.

    Because The WFPB (Whole Food Plant Based) Cookbook is this type and not a vegan cookbook the recipes do not include meat or cheese substitutes and are made with whole veggies, grains, and fruits. None of the recipes look overly complicated and each comes with tags on them. The tags this book uses are: 5 ingredients, gluten-free, no cook, nut-free, one pot, & quick. They also place the cook times at the top so that you know a head a of what you are looking at.

I biggest issue with the cookbook is that there is only one picture per chapter so you really don't get an idea of what the dish should look like. Now most of the dished are fairly easy to figure out like soup, salad, oatmeal, etc. but maybe it would be good to have a photo of something like Shakshuka or Deconstructed Kofta since those are a little different for a western cook. Overall a good cookbook with several recipes that I would try.

    The WFPB Cookbook is an introduction into a whole foods plant based diet. The information and recipes are sound. I like that there is nutritional information on every recipe but I would have really liked to have more pictures, eyes to the stomach and all that jazz. I will definitely be adding some of these into the cooking rotation. I was provided with an electronic ARC through NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

    Was expecting a cookbook it’s so much more. Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned cook there’s something to learn. The concept of dry sautéing is such a big change for me and I love it! Recipes are labeled nicely so you can see what will take less than 30 minutes, one pot, gluten or nut free, no cooking or five ingredients. I love that. This would make a great gift for a newer cook or someone who is trying to a healthier, whole foods based diet.

All thoughts and opinions are my own.** I love to eat fruits and veggies more than meat, so I'm always looking for new plant based recipes. While there were some interesting things to be found, there was nothing really new that I hadn't seen before. Overall, I would say this book is a great guide for those just starting out with a plant based lifestyle. **I received and voluntarily read an e-ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    This book is super informative! I love cookbooks that are not JUST lists of recipes. This book has a lot of useful information, especially for beginner cooks who might just be getting started in the kitchen. The recipes themselves also contain useful information on how to prep them. This is a well-rounded cookbook full of delicious ideas and tips.

    Tasty and Doable I read recipes like novels. I read them cover to cover. There wasn’t one recipe that I thought yuck! Every recipe has clear direction and mostly common spices that can be found locally. They all sounded delish! I’ve only tried 2 of the recipes and can’t wait for my Sunday batch cooking.
