Edgar Castrejón went vegan as a college student when he realized that following a plant-based diet made him feel better, but he worried he would no longer fit in back at the table with his family. As a proud first-generation Mexican American growing up in Oakland, CA, Edgar had spent countless hours with his mom, aunts, and grandmother in the kitchen, where family recipes were passed down through “las manos mágicas (the magic hands).” So Edgar began creating healthier, meatless variations on the dishes he grew up cooking and eating, and now you can try them cooking from his book.
