Next in line for review is the collection of cookbooks from The Happy Herbivore.
Lindsay Nixon is a follower of the low-fat plant based lifestyle. I love all her cookbooks, however it did take a bit of encouragement for me to purchase them.
A friend was 'upgrading' to ebooks and I was fortunate enough to be offered to buy the paperbacks from her. I have not regretted the purchase at all!
These are some of our most used cookbooks, mainly because my daughter has an aim to cook EVERY recipe from the original Happy Herbivore book. Now if that isn't sign enough how tasty & easy these recipes are, then I don't know what is!
The range of recipes in these books is amazing. And everything we have tried so far is just delicious.
The recipes are easy to make and require basic ingredients, nothing too flash or fancy & they are all free of added oils. My kind of cookbooks :-)
The recipes are also ones that are sure to please all taste buds, including those who are not used to eating vegan, or low free vegan.
The books have wonderful pictures through out and have great guides to the recipes, including symbols for quick (less than 30 mins), gluten free, soy free and kid friendly recipes. The appendix at the back is one of the best ones I've ever seen in a cookbook making it really easy to find the recipes you are looking for.
Lindsay also encourages a "minimalist" lifestyle that means not creating clutter in our homes & only purchasing what we truly need.
I recently added her newest cookbook "Light and Lean" to my collection. I must admit that I am yet to actually cook any recipes from it, but I think it's another book that I'll add to my list of 'must cook every recipe' books!!! It all looks so amazing delicious.
Now onto some recipes!
These chocolate chip cookies are delicious. They were one of the first things my daughter ticked off her list and she has been making them regularly ever since!
Another of my daughters favourites that she regularly makes is this "tofu yogurt". It's quite and easy to blend up and taste delicious.
Below is "miso gravy". I haven't experimented hugely with gravies since going vegan & have only really ever made either a store bought packet mix or my mushroom gravy. This gravy was so so delicious, it was full of flavour and we all really enjoyed it. It perfectly completed this meal of bean patties and waffle potatoes.

She also does plant-based meal plans for those who are interested.
