One of the things I wanted to do this summer is to explore a vegan diet. (I’ll be outlining my reasons why later this week). I’ve been pinning vegan meals to my Veggie Food Pinterest board for a while, but I also wanted something on paper that I could refer back to. I then saw someone retweet something by Lee Watson, author of Peace and Parsnips: Vegan Cooking for Everyone, a vegan cookbook.
It has great reviews on Amazon, which really swayed it for me, as I don’t buy cookbooks very often. You see, I’m not a massive fan of cooking. I’m more of a heater – if I can just bung it in the oven, then I’m happy. But I know that if I want to follow a vegan diet, then I’m going to need to be able to cook proper food. The reviews about Peace & Parsnips said that the food was easy to cook and both vegans and non-vegans alike enjoyed the recipes. Plus, look at that cover! Isn’t it gorgeous?! So far, I’ve only tried one recipe – the Chocolate & Brazil Nut Spelt cookies. I wanted to bake something to enjoy while watching the Great British Bake Off, though they nearly didn’t last long! They were amazing and easy to make, plus they didn’t need a load of weird ingredients, which is always a huge bonus. I’m looking forward to trying more of the recipes too.
