Do you VB6—that is, eat vegan before 6 pm? In this inspiring cookbook, you'll find more than 60 easy recipes to enjoy Mark Bittman's plant-based, real-food approach to eating. Drawing on a varied pantry of vegan staples, strategically punctuated with “treat” foods that include meat and other animal products, Bittman's versatile recipes make following the VB6 plan satisfying, sustainable and fun. You'll find a full range of morning favorites, including hot cereals, dairy-free smoothies, toast toppers and brunch-worthy entrées. Lunches include soups, sandwiches, beans, grains and pastas to pack along wherever the day takes you. Dinners are flexitarian, focusing on vegetable-forward meals augmented by tasty animal products. And thanks to a chapter devoted to “building blocks”—make-ahead components to mix and match—you can be sure that a healthy, delicious meal is never more than a few minutes away.
