Incredible plant-based recipes from the world-renowned founder of the Jivamukti yoga method and the Jivamuktea Café.
Since 1984, Jivamukti yoga has been synonymous with a new way of living: peacefully, healthfully, and consciously. In 2006, Sharon Gannon and David Life opened the Jivamuktea Café in New York City to complement their yoga school as a living expression of how compassionate spiritual activism can be put to practical use. The peaceful ambience, the camaraderie, and, most of all, the delicious, hearty fare struck a chord with patrons who were thrilled to eliminate meat and dairy from their diets without sacrificing taste.
Gannon reveals the secrets behind the café’s acclaimed menu and showcases her own home-cooking, with recipes she’s been making for family and friends for decades—from Creamy Wild Mushroom Soup, to Cajun-Mexican-inspired Jambalaya, to her signature chocolate mousse. Her recipes are paired with gorgeous color photos by award-winning photographer Frank Guzman. The hardcover is featured in Rachael Ray’s 2015 Go Vegan Guide and was named a Best Fall Cookbook by Well + Good. Whether you’re a stalwart vegan or one of the millions of people who eat vegan part-time for health and environmental benefits, Gannon’s accessible, delicious, and spiritually powerful recipes will bring joy to your table and tranquility to your life.
