PlantYou: Scrappy Cooking – by Carleigh Bodrug

This is a book that took “whole foods plant-based diet” and ran with it.

“Whole foods”, you say? Carleigh Bodrug has you covered in this guide to using pretty much everything.

One of the greatest strengths of the book is its “Got this? Make that” section, for using up those odds and ends that you’d normally toss.

You may be thinking: “ok, but if to use this unusual ingredient I have to buy four other ingredients to make this recipe, generating waste from those other ingredients, then this was a bad idea”, but fear not.

Bodrug covers that too, and in many cases leftover “would get wasted” ingredients can get turned into stuff that can go into longer-term storage one way or another, to use at leisure.

Which also means that on the day “there’s nothing in the house to eat” and you don’t want to go grocery-shopping, or if some global disaster causes the supply lines to fail and the stores become empty (that could never happen though, right?), you will have the mystical ability to conjure a good meal out of assorted odds and ends that you stored because of this book.

Bottom line: if you love food and hate food waste, this is a great book for you.
