Beloved Southern Instagrammer and food blogger Michelle Braxton’s long awaited debut cookbook is filled with delectable comfort food recipes that are plant-forward and pescatarian, easy-to-prepare and flexible, made with wholesome and seasonal ingredients, all shared in her signature warm and welcoming style.
Michelle Braxton has always believed that the secret ingredient to any dish is love, and that the best part of any meal is the joy that comes with sharing food with the people you care about. She founded her blog Supper with Michelle as a way to celebrate vegetables and spread the joy and happiness she finds in plant-forward and pescatarian cooking. With over 85 recipes, Michelle shows just how simple, nourishing, and flavorful plant-forward meals can be.
In Supper with Love, Michelle shares her very personal journey of food, love, and life. With some of her favorite beautifully photographed recipes for vibrant and satisfying salads, soups, side dishes, sandwiches, bowls, brinners, and suppers, highlighting natural and in-season ingredients every step of the way. Bringing meatless twists to some classic comfort dishes, she crafts approachable, easy-to-prepare meals that are nourishing and crave-worthy. And as a firm believer in finding the food lifestyle that works best for you, she encourages readers to get into your groove and “freestyle it" by offering countless variations and substitutions for ingredients, ways to “veganize” recipes (if they aren’t already vegan), recipe pairings, and creative ways to repurpose leftovers, so you can enjoy her recipes any way you want. From simple one-pot meals to Sunday suppers, there are recipes for every taste, mood, and schedule.
Though her passion for food was nurtured by her upbringing and childhood in Georgia, Michelle now finds inspiration in cuisines from all over the world. Readers will be inspired with innovative salads like the Strawberry & Halloumi Salad with Creamy Balsamic Dressing and Zesty Ranch Broccoli-Pasta Salad, crowd-pleasing sides like Loaded Smashed Potatoes and Baked Tomato Rice with Castelvetrano Olives, and because Michelle has been coined as the “soup queen”—wholesome soups like Sunshine Dal and blog favorite… Vegetarian Zuppa Toscana, and hearty entrees like the Sunday Night Vegetable Pot Pie and Kitchen Sink Enchilada Casserole.
Supper with Love makes eating your veggies fun, nutritious, and delicious. Whether you’re a vegetarian or an omnivore, a savvy home chef or a total beginner, or looking to feed one hungry mouth or a whole table’s worth, these recipes will not only satisfy, but feed your body and soul. So, pull up a chair, because you’re invited for supper!
Michelle Braxton creates, cooks, and photographs recipes for her popular plant-forward and pescatarian-friendly blog Supper with Michelle. A firm believer in balance for both food and life, Michelle strives to incorporate as many fresh, seasonal, and natural ingredients as possible into her dishes. Preparing every meal with love, Michelle hopes that by sharing her veggie-enthusiastic recipes with the world, others can in return share them with their friends and family and pass on a little bit of that love, too. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
