Color your kitchen with a rainbow of healthy, delicious plant-based recipes.

You don't need fancy equipment or expensive exotic ingredients to make delicious, healthy, vegan meals at home. Let The Colorful Kitchen take the mystery out of plant-based cooking and make the experience of cooking and eating easy and delicious.

Certified health coach and plant-based food blogger Ilene Godofsky's cooking philosophy is "colorful, not complicated." When you fill your plate with color, you're not only adding flavor and visual appeal—you're filling your plate with health. Her recipes emphasize vivid combinations of wholesome, plant-based ingredients full of essential vitamins and minerals—because counting colors is way more fun than counting calories and carbs.

Ilene guides readers through easy-to-follow preparations that will make every meal as exciting as it is nourishing.

The Colorful Kitchen's vibrant, sustaining recipes include:

- Pink & Purple Coconut  Smoothie

- Maple-Mustard Squash Grilled Cheese

- Harvest Butternut Squash & Apple Burgers with Sage Aioli

- Chickpea Crust Rainbow Alfredo Pizza

- Pineapple & Peanut Sauce Tofu Wrap

- Strawberry Loaf with Cream Cheese Glaze

- Chocolate Hummus

For too long, vegan food has had a bad reputation: tasteless, boring. Mostly brown. Full of unfamiliar ingredients that take way too long to prepare. Not in The Colorful Kitchen!
