I recently checked out "You Can Cook This!" by Max La Manna, and let me tell you, it's a plant-based culinary adventure worth taking. You Can Cook This! explores the culinary charms and sustainability wisdom of Max La Manna, a rising star in the realm of young social media chefs, has crafted a cookbook that not only gets your taste buds excited but also champions a "no waste" mentality.

One standout recipe that I couldn't resist trying was the Killer Tofu "Ground Beef." The simplicity of the preparation surprised me, and the end result was nothing short of delicious. I modified it to suit my taste buds, serving it alongside a vibrant salad of mixed herb lettuces, greens, avocado, tomato, and a balsamic drizzle. As if that wasn't enough, I added two slices of toasted sweet potato slathered with delectable vegan butter.
