Book Review: Plant Powered Mexican

Plant Powered Mexican: Fast, Fresh Recipes from a Mexican-American KitchenPlant Powered Mexican: Fast, Fresh Recipes from a Mexican-American Kitchen by Kate Ramos
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mexican food has been my favorite since I was a toddler – no exaggeration! And while heavier, meat-based dishes have always been my go-to comfort foods, as I’ve grown older, my dietary needs have changed, However, my love for Mexican food has not. Plant Powered Mexican shows me how to create satisfying, hearty meals that fit perfectly with my current needs.

There’s plenty of variety in the multitude of recipes, and the photography is beautiful enough to compel you to try them. Incidentally, if you’re like me and cilantro tastes like soap (we have a quirk in our olfactory-receptor genes), just substitute fresh parsley or basil. You’re welcome.

I appreciate Kate Ramos fresh approach to Mexican food, and am sure when I get my hardback copy, it will soon be splattered and stained with use. That’s a badge of honor only the useful cookbooks achieve!

My thanks to author Kate Ramos, Harvard Common Press, and NetGalley for allowing me to read a digital advance review copy of this book. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.
