Our co-founders Myra and Drew Goodman started Earthbound Farm back in 1984 with a little backyard garden, a roadside stand and a deep love for the verdant land around them. The rest is amazing organic history (see the whole Earthbound story here) — and today, Earthbound’s healthy organic salads, fruits and vegetables are enjoyed by folks across the country.

Now Myra’s new cookbook, Straight from the Earth: Irresistible Vegan Recipes for Everyone — co-authored by her daughter Marea — is being released by Chronicle Books! (Check out her other two cookbooks here.)

Myra and Marea are skillful home cooks who really know their way around produce. The book features fresh ingredients and intriguing flavor combos in delicious dishes that aren’t just heavy on the fruits and veggies — they happen to be vegan, too.

“We want all kinds of eaters to enjoy these dishes,” Myra writes in her column on our Fresh Feast blog. “Our goal was to create 100% plant-based recipes that feel like a treat, not a sacrifice. We hope you love these recipes as much as we do, and that they bring the inspiration of our farm and love for delicious, healthy food directly to your kitchen.”

We’re as excited now as we were for Myra’s first cookbook — and hungry, too! Here’s a little taste that we think you’ll enjoy.

 

  • Cabbage & Carrot Crunch Salad

  • Prep Time: 20m | Serves 6
  •  
  • This salad is delicious to eat, beautiful to behold and very healthful. It combines the crunch of red cabbage, carrots, succulent romaine hearts, crispy apples and almonds — all complemented by sweet-tart dried cranberries and an agave-Dijon vinaigrette.
  •  
  • You can make this salad any time of year, but Myra says she turns to it most often in the winter, because these tasty and highly nutritious ingredients are always available even when the rest of the produce selection has dwindled. When the days are cold, short and gray, this salad brings a welcome pop of color and vibrancy to your table. From Straight from the Earth: Irresistible Vegan Recipes for Everyone by Myra Goodman & Marea Goodman.

  I LOVE cabbage salads
By: nobodysgirle

  I LOVE cabbage salads (especially with apples and dried fruit)!  Though I've eaten countless variations of cabbage, wouldn't you know that I've NEVER paired it with plain 'ol lettuce?  Can't wait to try the combo!

   And a plant-based cookbook?  Color me HAPPY.  :) Will there be a preview of it (ie: table of contents unveiling and/or chapter titles) or any further info on it coming up on the site?  When is it going to be released?  I'm looking forward to hearing more about it!
