Jackie Kearney’s Vegan Mock Meat Revolution seemed like a welcome addition to my already heaving cookery book shelf – you’ll see I often opt for meat alternatives while eating out, but I very rarely dabble with them when cooking at home. It’s a very different recipe book from most of those that I own, and I was keen to dive in and try some of the meal ideas out.
During long quarantine days with not much to do, I’ve found myself watching a lot of vegan cooking videos on YouTube, Rachel Ama’s being one of the channels I spent a good while viewing. Being a cookbook addict, and much preferring to have the recipe written down, I decided to invest in Rachel’s book so I could recreate some of her delicious looking dishes myself.
The Naturally Sassy cookbook by Saskia Gregson-Williams is one of the older plant-based recipe books in my collection, published in 2015. It was a fairly new release when I started my vegan journey, and one that truly helped me find enjoyment in cooking after a period of having a difficult relationship with food.
