Vegan (must have) Books

Howdy, here are some absolute musts in the realm of epic cook books for some seriously laid back rustic dishes or some rather posh nosh meals for guests, there is something below for everyone – The baker, The cook and the aspiring Chef! If it wasn’t for these here books I would most definitely be a a stereotyped cardboard eating coeliac going down a manically depressive road to self loathing. But whey hey! Thankfully people share recipes so I can eat well and force feed my meat eating friends to eat vegan meals when they call over (you know who you all are!) *evil laugh*

Here the list:

    Hi Linda,
    Hope you are well. I am starting a 30 day vegan challenge tomorrow after watching Cowspiracy as I’m sure you have seen! What staples do you feel are most necessary in the kitchen for this? Although I love to cook I want to keep it simple for the first while to improve my chances of success and longevity!

      This is great! Well done!

      Anything lentil, nut or legume based. There are so many burgers, loafs, curries, lentil lasagne you can do with these staple ingredients.
      I always have Aubergine, Mushroom and Courgette in my fridge, and replaced Steak initially with portobello mushroom (just sprinkle some olive oil, balsamic glaze and whatever your fav herbs are and pop in oven for about 15-20 mins at 200c). You can do the same with Aubergine. It is so meaty.

      My most used herbs and spices are Turmeric, Basil, Parsley, Mint, Thyme, Rosemary. You can put them with most veg and salads to kick start them into flavour.
