The PlantPure Nation Cookbook

A revolution has begun…

From a creative team that includes the producer and writer of Forks Over Knives, the documentary film PlantPure Nation captures the inspiring story of plant-based nutrition’s impact on a small town in the rural South and the effort to bring about historic political change. As the film’s official companion cookbook, The PlantPure Nation Cookbook brings this powerful, science-based approach to nutrition from the big screen to your kitchen with some of the same mouthwatering recipes that kick-started the revolution, promoting the health benefits of a whole food, plant-based diet.

She is also a culinary contributor, recipe developer, and cooking instructor at Campbell Wellness. In PlantPure Nation Cookbook, she shares more than 150 extensively tested, 100 percent plant-based recipes that she has created and cultivated over 25 years of vegan cooking, such as:

Cajun-Style Sweet Potato Fries

This is a sweet and spicy combination of seasonings and potatoes that goes well with salads and sandwiches.


4 sweet potatoes
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon dried thyme
½ teaspoon dried rosemary
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon sea salt


Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper.

Peel the sweet potatoes and cut off the ends. Cut the potatoes French fry style.

Put the sweet potatoes into a large gallon-size re­sealable plastic bag. Add the seasonings to the bag, zip it up, and shake well until the potatoes are thoroughly coated.

Spread the seasoned fries on the prepared pan. Make sure you spread them out evenly and that they are not overlapping.

Bake for a total of 25–30 minutes. After the first 15 minutes, remove the baking sheet from the oven and turn over all of the sweet potato pieces. Return to the oven and bake for another 10–15 minutes, or until they are well browned. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
