“Ilene has us covered with every color in the rainbow! These recipes are loaded with nutrition that haven’t sacrificed any of the yummy flavor. From Coconut Crusted Avocado Fries and Whole Roasted Tahini Cauliflower to Cheesy Broccoli & Bacon Stuffed Potatoes and Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies, every recipe is easy and delicious.” —Chloe Coscarelli, vegan chef and cookbook author of Chloe Flavor

The Colorful Kitchen proves that plant-based cooking can be delicious, easy, and totally affordable. Ilene’s beautiful recipes will leave you inspired, no matter how veggie-skeptical you are. A true feast for your belly and eyes!” —Jessica Murnane, author of One Part Plant and host of the One Part Podcast


Color your kitchen with a rainbow of healthy, delicious plant-based recipes.

You don’t need fancy equipment or expensive exotic ingredients to make delicious, healthy, vegan meals at home. Let The Colorful Kitchen take the mystery out of plant-based cooking and make the experience of cooking and eating easy and delicious. Certified health coach and plant-based food blogger Ilene Godofsky’s cooking philosophy is “colorful, not complicated.” When you fill your plate with color, you’re not only adding flavor and visual appeal—you’re filling your plate with health. Her recipes emphasize vivid combinations of wholesome, plant-based ingredients full of essential vitamins and minerals—because counting colors is way more fun than counting calories and carbs. Ilene guides readers through easy-to-follow preparations that will make every meal as exciting as it is nourishing. The Colorful Kitchen’s vibrant, sustaining recipes include:

  • Pink & Purple Coconut Smoothie
  • Pineapple & Peanut Sauce Tofu Wrap
  • Coconut Crusted Avocado Fries
  • Roasted Rainbow Bowl with Maple Mustard Dressing
  • Harvest Butternut Squash & Apple Burgers
  • Strawberry Loaf with Cream Cheese Glaze
  • Chocolate Hummus
  • Miso Tahini Cookies

For too long, vegan food has had a bad reputation: tasteless, boring. Mostly brown. Full of unfamiliar ingredients that take way too long to prepare. Not in The Colorful Kitchen!
