Overview

More than 200 delicious vegan recipes from the world-renowned founder of the Jivamukti yoga method and the New York City Jivamuktea Café
 
Since 1984, Jivamukti yoga has been synonymous with a new way of living: peacefully, healthfully, and consciously. Jivamukti’s dedicated instructors and message of kindness have inspired a global revolution. In 2006, Sharon Gannon and David Life opened the Jivamuktea Café to complement their yoga school as a living expression of how compassionate spiritual activism can be put to practical use. It, too, was an immediate success. The peaceful ambiance, 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 diet without sacrificing taste.
 
Thousands of customers—including Russell Simmons, award-winning film director Darren Aronofsky, and Eco Spokesmama Chloé Jo Davis—have become devoted fans of Gannon’s cruelty-free burritos, chocolate mousse, and flower salads. Now, for the first time, Gannon presents the secrets behind the café's acclaimed menu—and also showcases her own home cooking, with recipes she’s been making for family and friends for decades.
 
Stalwart vegans—as well as the millions of vegetarians and omnivores who eat vegan part-time for its health and environmental benefits—will embrace Gannon’s accessible, delicious, and spiritually powerful recipes.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
Advance Praise for Simple Recipes for Joy

"This beautiful book will transform your life. Sharon Gannon has helped countless people achieve a dramatically new level of health and wellness. Now, you can put her wisdom to work as she guides you to using the power of food in ways you may never have imagined. Over many years, our research has established the surprising power of plant-based diets to help people regain their health and vitality. Sharon Gannon brings you everything you need to put that power to work."
—Neal D. Barnard, M.D., President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, Adjunct Associate Professor of Medicine, George Washington University School of Medicine, Washington, DC
 
"Sharon Gannon infuses love and spirit into every one of her incredibly delicious dishes; eat her food and feel good in your body and soul!”
—Kathy Freston, New York Times bestselling author of Veganist and Quantum Wellness
 
"Sharon is my Guru—I like eating anything she’s dishing out. Her teachings on yoga and veganism have positively transformed my life. She is not only an example of someone who walks the talk, but she excels in so many areas, teacher, philosopher, activist, artist, musician and cook, showing us all that through devotion to God one can become a divine instrument and with God’s great love all is possible."
—Russell Simmons, philanthropist, New York Times bestselling author of Success Through Stillness
 
"All one needs to do is be around Sharon Gannon for mere moments to realize that she's figured out the secret to happiness. Sharon glows with good karma, optimal wellness, and a joyful, blissful life. Therefore, whatever she is eating, doing, teaching—we must perk up and take notice. How and what we eat is not only integral to health, but to what life brings us energetically. This cookbook is a call to tasty karmic eating, to revitalize our dulled taste buds and get our depressed palates in shape. Whole foods, fresh foods, foods alive with rich vitamin properties—these are the keys to turning our life around from the inside out. Unlike many vegan cookbooks, Sharon's recipes aren't riddled with substitutions for meat and ice cream. Sharon serves us healthy realness, the truth behind what our bodies really need (one look at hers tells us to listen up!) and what will fill us and warm us in the long term. Sharon's recipes are simple, tasty, and most importantly, recipes you will make again and again. Sharon keeps her ingredient lists short, which makes life for busy moms (like me!) committed to healthful family eating easier. This is a book all vegan-curious, committed plant-eaters, and anyone looking to up their health ante and notice a quick difference should have handy. You don't have to be a patchouli-swinging back-bender to eat these foods; any novice or mom next door can learn endless nutritional truths and tips with this book within reach. If you could live healthfully without resorting to pharmaceuticals, help the environment by eating sustainably, be in fabulous shape, feel wonderful, and be committed to ahimsa—to not participating in the brutal treatment of animals on factory farms—non harming... why on earth wouldn't you? This is the truth in Sharon's message. It's a simple decision to make. Try this diet. Eat this delicious food. The transformation in your body and mind will be dramatic, and you'll ride the sexy changes deliciously on this treasure tomb of plant powered tastiness!"
—Chloé Jo Davis, Eco Spokesmama & GirlieGirlArmy.com Founder
  
“Super Green Salad, Love Smoothie, Green Machine…All enlargements of the soul with the intrinsic beauty of Sharon Gannon, the most impassioned and truthful vegan chef and yogi alive today on Mother Earth.”
—Joe Sponzo, Personal chef to Sting and Trudie Styler, and author of The Lakehouse Cookbook
 
"Sharon Gannon's beautiful book lies at the untapped intersection of cooking, yoga, and ahimsa practices, demonstrating that preparing and consuming life-giving—rather than life-taking—food is the foundation of a conscious and compassionate life."
—Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, bestselling author of The Joy of Vegan Baking and The 30-Day Vegan Challenge.
 
"Simple Recipes For Joy proves that a compassionate and healthy vegan diet leaves zero to be desired. If you've ever considered leaving animals off your plate, this easy cookbook by one of yoga's masters has a lot to offer. Full of simple yet incredible meat-free recipes that don't rely on soy products, Sharon's recipes are based on wholesome, unprocessed foods that bring us health and vitality. She cooks from the heart, always keeping the well-being of others in mind—both human and animal. She is a tireless voice for the voiceless—and a great cook too!"
—Jenny Brown, Founder & Director Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary and Author of The Lucky Ones: My Passionate Fight for Farm Animals
 
"Buying a vegan cookbook is usually an expression of interest. Buying this one is a declaration. The activism known as peace springs from your plate—and thanks to Sharon Gannon, it’s a delectable beginning."
—Kevin Archer, author of In Lieu of Heaven
 
"Sharon's food nourishes AND enlightens. As a long time devoted fan of her Jivamuktea Cafe and her yoga teachings, I can't wait to experiment with her alchemy at home. She's finally given up her secrets."
—Darren Aronofsky, award winning film director—Noah, Black Swan and The Wrestler
 
"With Simple Recipes for Joy, Sharon lets us in on the inner sanctum of her alchemical kitchen. I have had the privilege of sitting at her table since 1979, being personally served by her and eating her delicious cruelty-free meals—and can attest to the fact that they are filled with nourishment, presented with graciousness and plenty of magic. Her cookbook provides insightful ways to improve our health, the Earth’s wellbeing, our relationship to our fellow animals and make positive changes in our diet that will affect the whole world and could possibly save it."
—Dr. Andrew Lange N.D., author of Getting at the Root: Treating the Deepest Source of Disease

    Wonderful book! I love the dressings and sauces. Simple recipes

    Wonderful book! I love the dressings and sauces. Simple recipes that anyone can make and enjoy. Great for a beginner to vegan cooking, or for someone like myself who loves to cook. I love the spicy tempeh and tempeh croutons as an addition to salads. Great pesto recipe for pasta or to add to a sandwich. I can't wait to try all of the recipes in this book. Vegan cooking at its best.

    This is way more than a simple cookbook, though it contains over 200 simple recipes for delicious dishes.  As a whole, including the extraordinary foreword, introduction and cooking tips, this book is a teaching about how to make cooking and eating a spiritual practice that can lead to lasting peace and happiness.  It is a revolutionary book, not because the recipes are all vegan, which is not uncommon these days, but because it recognizes the interconnectedness of all life, including even the lives of the plants that make up the ingredients of the recipes.  Those who have transitioned to veganism for ethical reasons know the joy that comes from letting go of the deeply conditioned view that humans are superior to other living beings and thereby have the right to utilize others to stimulate our taste buds, make clothes and shoes for us to wear, provide us with entertainment and serve as research subjects.  Seeing oneself as a full and equal member of the global community of living beings with no hierarchies and no intentions or efforts to exploit others is a true recipe for joy.  When one knows that kind of joy, one cannot help but share it with others.  Sharon Gannon knows the joy of spiritualizing her relationship to food, and with this book, she invites the reader to experience that joy for him/herself and offers the means to attain it.
