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, edgar had spent countless hours with his mum, aunts, + grandmother in the kitchen, where family recipes were passed down through "las manos mágicas." so edgar began creating healthier, meatless variations on the dishes he grew up cooking + eating.
provechofeatures one hundred of edgar's ingenious vegan recipes that honor the traditional, often meat-heavy classics of mexican + latin american culture while cooking with compassion. many take thirty minutes or less, rely on readily accessible ingredients + feature aalvadoran + colombian influences.
