Blissful Bites from The Blissful Chef
Meet Christy Morgan, The Blissful Chef and author of Blissful Bites, a cookbook for novice, experimental, and skilled vegans. Christy’s mission is to help people find their own sense of connectedness and bliss through food. We love it!
Christy says, “The dishes here complement a mix of traditional plant-based diets – vegetarian, vegan, macrobiotic, low-fat and raw foods – so whichever diet you follow, you’ll be ready to whip up dozens of dishes to suit your needs.”
Blissful Bites recipes are organized by season and coded with icons listing raw, gluten-free and soy-free, low oil, and take less than 45 minutes to prepare. Christy offers us super yummy recipes like kale salad with curry- coconut sauce, soba noodle sushi with apricot-ginger dipping sauce, and heavenly raw chocolate mousse.
Her book offers tips to create an ideal kitchen pantry by explaining basic staples for baking and cooking – spices, oils, vinegars, condiments, and seasonings – and the tools we’ll need to create healthy plant-based dishes. She has useful photos explaining different knife techniques.
Published by BenBella books, Blissful Bites has over 175 recipes. Most of the recipes have color photos to give you a preview of the blissful bites you’re about to make.
Yummy Plants founder Rebecca Gilbert said, “Blissful Bites transforms natural foods into magical morsels. It is a must-have cookbook for all of us who yearn to create elegant, delicious, and healthful meals. Blissful Bites is an excellent cookbook for both experienced chefs and beginners because the innovative, interesting recipes are easy to follow.”
