Plantas: Modern Vegan Recipes for Traditional Mexican Cooking

Let's explore the rich tapestry of traditional Mexican cuisine together, reimagined with a plant-based twist to bring you simple, affordable, and nourishing vegan delights from the first light of morning to the sweet end of dinner.

With my very own photography capturing the essence of each dish, "Plantas" is your heartfelt invitation to experience the cherished food of Mexican culture through a plant based lens. It's a celebration, a homage to the vibrant plants that are the cornerstone of the cuisine we've all come to adore.

Kind Words About 'Plantas'

Masterful, Vibrant, Nourishing

“Alexa’s debut cookbook masterfully combines traditional Mexican flavors with the vibrant world of plant-based cuisine. With every turning page you’ll be met with stunning visuals and nourishing accessible vegan recipes, suitable for a quick weeknight dinner to a lavish Mexican feast!”

— Carleigh Bodrug, New York Times Bestselling Author @Plantyou

Soulful, Elegant, Modern

“With Plantas, Alexa Soto elegantly pays homage to Mexico's storied legacy of plant-based cooking while deftly adapting its soulful repertoire to modern times. I may still be a card-carrying carnivore, sure, but I now find myself craving dishes like her mole negro with roasted oyster mushrooms even more than my beloved carne asada.”

— Jorge Gaviria, Award-winning author of MASA, CEO of Masienda @Masienda
