Ellen DeGeneres' personal chef, Roberto Martin, shares over 125 delicious vegan recipes he's created for the DeGeneres household that he hopes will make healthy vegan cooking accessible and easy for everyone. Martin, a Cullinary Institute of America-trained chef, explains, "What Ellen, Portia, and I learned together was that vegan food is no different than any other cuisine. Flavors that work in non-vegan meals work on vegan dishes just as well...Even if you start with just one meal a week, you can learn to cook healthy and delicious vegan meals without having to make a big change in your life." Some of the standouts Martin has developed for Ellen and Portia include: Banana and Oatmeal Pancakes, Avocado Reuben, Red Beans and Rice, "Chick'n" Pot Pie, and Chocolate Cheesecake. Featuring mouthwatering photographs by award-winning food photographer, Quentin Bacon, this cookbook will appeal to die-hard carnivores and vegetarians alike.
