We think everyone should eat more plants, and we don’t just mean two carrots instead of one – it’s about enjoying all the colours of the veggie rainbow. Vegetables too often play second fiddle in a dish, and this book is here to change that. Between spiced rhubarb chutney, fennel gratin, and roast sweet potato with miso & ginger caramel, Eat Plants, Be Happy! puts veggies back exactly where they should be: at the centre of a meal.

With 130 simple, delicious, vegetable-focused recipes, authors Caroline Griffiths and Vicki Valsamis show how eating plant-based means eating well – and ensuring a happier mind, body and planet.
