I requested this book on NetGalley because it seemed to have an interesting concept. Not being a very ardent follower of Vegan resources online, I was unaware of the author’s blog or anything else about her. It was a pleasant surprise.
The book is divided into the usual themes, with one major difference, all of them are made with eight ingredients. A pre-mixed combination of spices counts as a single ingredient, but regular consumption of which would mean they would be stocked in our pantry and therefore not be an issue.
The photographs are delicious in their own right and since I am yet to attempt any of the recipes, I cannot confirm if they will turn out the same when I try my hand at them! They seem simple enough to reproduce and some recurring base ingredients would mean fewer trips to the market and a more sincere appreciation for a book like this. With every advance copy of cookbooks that I am lucky to get a chance to browse through, I feel like I should really start trying to experiment in my own kitchen and soon!
To all those who are on the lookout for a useful cookbook to grace their shelves and prompt interesting ideas to a healthy diet ( it comes with the approximate calorific values as well), this is something to think about investing in. It releases later this month and is still available on NetGalley, when I checked last.
