Last year I got a couple of vegan cookbooks from my mum for Christmas. One of them is full of colourful photos and looks pretty impressive, but the recipes are basically just "regular" recipes made vegan - using a lot of meat and dairy substitutes, you know, that old chestnut! But the other book is good enough to blog about! All the recipe's are original and look delicious, even though I haven't tried any of them yet :P but I will!! This noteworthy book is called 'How it all vegan', written by Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer.
The book also has a friendly yet informative introduction to veganism, it lists substitutes and no-nos and even has a section on 'what to do if mum is worried about your diet' :P
I'm really really looking forward to trying some of these recipes!
They have a recipe for 'basil pesto' that is so unlike any other vegan recipe for it that I've seen, to make it clear - the other book that I mentioned before had a recipe for 'basil pesto', it was just pine nuts, basil, oil and salt, whoop de do! Like I haven't tried THAT before. Yes it's yummy, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to take Parmesan cheese out of a recipe to make it vegan!
But the recipe in 'How is all vegan' has another few ingredients in their basil pesto which sound really interesting! I'm dying to know how it will taste!
And their salad section, my goodness! Every single recipe sounds amazing!
Hopefully I get around to making something from the book soon and remember to blog about it!
