I was so excited to get the Hemsley sisters’ book Good and Simple since healthy and plant centric food is a part of our lifestyle. After perusing the book three times, I was rather disappointed in the recipes. Most of the recipes have been done in other books like chia pudding, smoothies, huevos rancheros, zucchini and carrot noodles, and many egg dishes. There were a few that stood out to me like the butternut and almond butter porridge and brocomole but even then they didn’t sound tempting enough to try. I was left rather uninspired to cook anything from Good and Simple. If you’re looking for delicious and creative plant-based recipes then get a copy of Green Kitchen Travels, My New Roots, or a Modern Way to Eat. I have cooked from all those books and found the recipes fantastic and left even my non-vegetarian family members and guests wanting more.
