The Compassionate Kitchen
A plant-based cookbook
If there is one piece of advice that every doctor, dietician and nutritionist agrees on, it is this: eat more plants. But that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on flavour or enjoyment. Nourish yourself and your environment with these 70 plant-based recipes from naturopath Gemma Davis and chef Tracy Noelle.
Packed with glorious Asian flavours, vegetables, herbs and spices, these exciting recipes are creative, tasty and filling – and they have the bonus of being good for you. From nutritious breakfasts, to punchy wraps, salads, soups, noodles and veggie bowls, plus luscious sweet treats, these vegan recipes from The Compassionate Kitchen will have you craving all their plant goodness for maximum energy, balance and pleasure.
The Compassionate Kitchen Cookbook came about because of a little quote of Mother Teresa’s that kept popping up in my head,
I personally still believe we need the sometimes hard truths so we can be aware of why we make certain choices but this book is not that.
It is a “pro-peace rally” for our plates.
Just good recipes to make tasty food.
That happen to be plant-based.
Which just happens to be one of the most effective ways we can live more sustainably, environmentally conscious and gentle.
Oh, and science shows eating more plants and reducing your meat has numerous health benefits.
Now, as much as I like cooking, I wanted to make sure I had a professional contributing to the dishes, so I got my good friend Tracy to be part of it, thank goodness. Tracy is a vegan chef who has worked in the homes of many wealthy and well-known families… lucky them!
Her recipes are delicious. I know you will love them. With my naturopathic background I made sure the large majority are healthy and because I believe life is about balance, we have included some tantalizing desserts that will hook any sweet tooth.
Tracy and I both have a love for Asian food so The Compassionate Kitchen has an Asian influence throughout it. There are plant-based versions of classics and some new playful flavours! There are also recipes in here from some special people in my life,
-Orchard Street’s Pad Thai and her incredible tamari cashews
-Raw Sisterhoods Fermented Vegetables
-Jessica Gomes Bibimbap Bowls
This book is for anyone. Whether you are plant-based, wanting to reduce your meat intake or someone who eats - we all want to eat more plants for our health! The recipes are easy to make, nutritious and they taste great.

'What we eat, every day, three times a day, when combined by 7 + billion of us, adds up and has a real impact. Eating more plant-based meals helps reduce the detrimental impact animal agriculture is having on our environment and the suffering of animals on factory farms. Plus these recipes taste great, are easy to make and are good for you!’
