Oh yeah, it’s cookbook time. This one is a plant-based/vegan cookbook from Bosh!, who I watch on YouTube and who are arguably the UK’s biggest vegan food influencers. I think I read somewhere that this one ended up at the top of the bestseller lists for several months in a row, and they also have another cookbook coming out early in 2019.
My only complaint here is that some of the pages fell out of my edition, although I guess you expect a certain amount of wear and tear on a cookbook. I don’t count my cookbooks as “read” until I’ve tried all of the recipes that I’m interested in, and with this one I ended up just with a big list of desserts after I’d raided it for mains.
I picked up some great recipes though, and I’ve also adapted a few of them or switched some ingredients around. I even taught my mum how to make the paella, which works well for her because she’s trying to lose weight. As for me, I was just happy to have a book that focused exclusively on plant-based cuisine, and this was actually the first one that I got my hands on.
If you’re not sold on it yet, check out Bosh’s YouTube channel for some recipes that aren’t included in here, because then you can give them a go beforehand and get a feel for whether you like their stuff. I’m particularly impressed by their jalapeno mac and cheese, which is probably the recipe I cook more than any other. The Chinese pancakes are also good.
