Laura Theodore is the fun vegan chef and personality on the PBS television show Jazzy Vegetarian. She is also a diverse singer, known mostly for her jazz. She has several cookbooks under her belt and Jazzy Vegetarian’s Deliciously Vegan: Plant Powered Recipes for the Modern, Mindful Kitchen is her latest. It is the companion cookbook to season six of her cooking show which is airing now. Check your local listings and give it a watch!
This cookbook is extensive (over 175 recipes!) covering everything from breakfast to dessert and everything in between. Laura also includes her essential Top Ten lists (Chapter 1) for things like pantry ingredients, egg substitutions, herbs and spices, and options for vegan cheese, among others. She also includes menu plans for holidays, seasons, and style of cuisine, which I think you’ll find very handy.

Miso provides texture and taste to this hummus without adding any oil, keeping it a light and low-fat option for a satisfying snack.
- 1 can (15 to 16 ounces) chickpeas (garbanzo beans) (drained and rinsed)
- 2-3 tablespoons water (plus more as needed)
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (see note)
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon mellow white miso
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Put all of the ingredients into a blender and process until smooth. Add a bit more water, as needed, to achieve the desired consistency.
Chef's Note: For an extra "lemony" taste, use 3 tablespoons lemon juice.
~A note from Veggie Inspired: I added a bit more cayenne and a clove of garlic.
