I am in love with this amazing cookbook! It’s one of those books you read cover to cover because the pictures are so pretty and the food looks so delicious. It’s called Straight from the Earth, Irresistible Vegan Recipes for Everyone and it’s written by Myra Goodman and her daughter, Marea Goodman. You may have heard of Myra…she is  the co-founder of Earthbound Farm. If you choose organic products in the grocery store, you’ve eaten their food. Back in 1986, they were the first company to successfully launch pre-washed, packaged salad for retail sale. And the rest is history, right?

Straight From The Heart Vegan Cookbook

Okay, you might be thinking, vegan?? I’m not a vegan, this book won’t work for me! But don’t you worry about that. The recipes are so versatile and utilize fresh, seasonal veggies that you’ll forget they’re vegan! Think of it more as a great go-to cookbook for interesting and creative plant-based dishes that everyone will love — vegans and meat eaters alike!

I wanted to get my family on board so I went right to a fun recipe from the appetizer section. As I was making it, Norah was watching and said “popcorn salad…interesting” — hence the name.

Popcorn Spinach Salad

Yes, there’s baby spinach in there! As odd as it may sound, it’s really tasty — this bowl was gobbled up by the meat-eating husband in less than 10 minutes. The baby spinach in there surprisingly works,  and it’s a one-of-kind appetizer, too! The flavor is a combination of herbs and spices, lemon and nutritional yeast (for a cheesy taste), but you could really make this popcorn your own by using your favorite toppings.  I made it my own way, air popping the corn and using a few different spices —  it came out great.
