Color Me Vegan

In Color Me Vegan, award-winning author and renowned vegan cooking expert Colleen Patrick-Goudreau brings an edible rainbow of plant-based cuisine to your kitchen table with 150 flavorful recipes designed to boost your health and perk up your palate. With color as the guiding principle behind each section, Colleen shows you how to harness the antioxidant power of every natural food in the color spectrum – from ruby red fruits to leafy green vegetables, to earthy brown grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds – and how to expertly prepare these foods for the greatest nutritional punch. And as always, each dish features Colleen’s trademark flair for bringing taste and fresh innovation to the table.

In the “Color Me Blue/Purple” chapter, for example, you’ll learn how the anthocyanins found in blue and purple plants can help protect you against high blood pressure and high cholesterol – and you’ll be treated to delicious recipes that showcase these plants, such as Lavender-Roasted Purple Potatoes and Purple Plum Pie with Crumble Topping.

In other chapters, you’ll find even more culinary delights, including:

  • Ginger-Roasted Parsnips
  • Apricot Red Lentil Stew
  • Seared Tempeh with Cherry Balsamic Reduction Sauce
  • Cashew and Red Lentil Burgers
  • Quinoa, Tofu, and Kale with Walnut Pesto
  • Lemony Pan-Fried Chickpeas with Chard Mango Saffron Mousse
  • Strawberries with Lavender Sauce

From sensational starters and salads, to filling mains and sides, to crave-worthy desserts—in every color—each recipe is not just a feast for your stomach, but a feast for your eyes as well!
