Disclaimer: I am not vegan. However, I am vegetarian which means that I do find a lot of ideas and inspiration in vegan recipe books, and very often additional options in restaurants!! And while I am not sure I can give up ice cream or milk chocolate or ghee or so many other such items which are not vegan, I am definitely trying to incorporate habits that lean towards the idea behind veganism. Regarding World Vegan Day, you can read more it here on the official website. For now, I present to you a ….

This book is a rich resource of more than just recipes. It is an all-in-one kitchen guide plus cookbook that is bound to be a boon for cooks of all stages. It includes tips for budgeting, stocking your pantry, to storing prepared food (even ideas for how to create new recipes from leftovers) plus so much more! Includes recipes like banana churro waffles (yum), Mexican stuffed zucchini, and sesame peanut noodles; recipes from the simple to something more complicated; for the beginner and for others looking to experiment.

This book had fewer pictures compared to most other cookbooks I have seen; and with food, pictures do help!

In Summary

A little bit of everything but most ideal for those looking to move from meat to vegetarian or vegan lifestyles as it offers many vegan ‘meat’ recipes (being vegetarian from the start, I don’t care much for those recipes anyway). You can check out the authors’ blog for inspiration – Meet the Shannons.

The Vegan 8

Recipes from popular blogger Brandi Doming of The Vegan 8 that are ideal for anyone new to plant-based cooking or seeking simplified, wholesome, family-friendly options for weeknight dinners.

When recipes call for fewer ingredients, in this case, 8 ingredients or less, I am all for it. While I do enjoy recipes that have tons of ingredients and need time, I love simple for the everyday. There is a certain comfort in foods where we can name all that goes into the making of it without difficulty and within a few seconds, right?! This book offers a richness of such recipes; and I love the many recipes for staples – like sauces, spice-mixes, and more. In addition to minimal ingredients, most of the recipes are quick as well. So it is like a two-in-one offer right there!! I had not known about the author or her blog (surprisingly) until this book. However, since I read it, I have checked out her blog – The Vegan 8 – often.

This book offers many gluten-free recipes as well. As for me, I love the Garlic Alfredo sauce (we love pasta at our home). Another favorite is of course the dessert section. Plus, the food photography is drool-worthy!!

In Summary

A great addition to any cook’s library. And it is perfect for those looking for both gluten free and vegan recipes.

  1. I used to accumulate cookbooks- but then I realized they just took up space in my (now much smaller) kitchen. Instead, I accumulate recipes- saved in my private domain, accessible by computer, phone, or tablet… in other words, always available.
    (I have a blog in my queue about veganism [of sort]. Caveat emptor!)

  2. I think the one I would be most interested in is The Vegan 8. I was a vegetarian for 2 years and was always looking for simple dinner recipes to try that could be so good I wouldn’t miss the meat. The other one that interests me is the dessert recipes. I’m a big fan of desserts from way back! 🙂

  3. Thanks for your visit and comment over at my blog’s!
    I think I do remember your first name as well. Great to reconnect!
    Cooking and life styles have certainly changed, and it’s always interesting to learn and try new things.

  4. I used to ridiculously amass all types of cookbooks thinking I would get around to trying all the various methods, I never did. 😉 But I am very interested in healthier choices these days so this is quite appealing. I am far too lazy to be a vegan but lean heavily toward a vegetarian diet.

  5. I’ve dipped my toe into whole foods, plant based several times, but wow, this came at just the right time. Due to some worsening symptoms, I do believe I will have to make a stronger commitment and stick to this diet for the long haul. I always feel better but I’ve always struggled with recipes. What a great resource. Thank you!
