In anticipation of the release of the new Deliciously Ella Quick and Easy cookbook, which sadly has been pushed back because of the pandemic (although you know I pre-ordered it ages ago anyway!), I revisited their most recently released book, The Plant-based Cookbook.
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.
As it’s Veganuary, I wanted to share some of my vegan tips beyond going out to eat at restaurants. January can be a tough month after the expense of Christmas, and indulging less in meals out can be one of the easy ways to save the pennies. Here are my top vegan cookbooks that I come back to time and time again for inspiration – quick mid-week meals, showstoppers, snacks and beyond.
