In this, the first MOB Kitchen cookbook, Ben’s mission is to “mob-ilize” cooks everywhere, young or old, and to inspire them to cook delicious, nutritious, and inexpensive recipes. From Asian-flavored spaghetti meatballs, to the ultimate falafel pitas, each recipe is designed to feed four people on a budget—and there’s something for everyone, whether your mob is vegan, vegetarian, meat loving, or health obsessed.
The core element of every MOB Kitchen recipe is that it is easy, affordable, healthy, delicious, and beautiful. Unlike most budget cooking sites, MOB Kitchen doesn’t make any absurd store-cupboard assumptions. All that is expected is that you have salt, pepper, olive oil, and a small budget, nothing more. Plus, each recipe has a song that’s perfect to play as you cook, and can be accessed directly through exclusive Spotify codes.
MOB Kitchen is the multimedia platform created by Ben Lebus, author of the bestselling books MOB Kitchen and MOB Veggie.
After spending years watching students browse tirelessly through food porn videos desperate for something to eat other than pesto-pasta, Ben decided to launch MOB Kitchen, with delicious recipes to cook on a budget.
MOB Kitchen became an immediate success and, since 2016, it has grown both as a team and as a platform.
