    A good range of recipes, especially for vegan converts who want to find substitutes for their old meaty favourites, and generally easy to adapt for those of us who are looking to cut down on meat and dairy rather than give up entirely. I love Jack's writing style and she makes the recipes seem easy enough to not put off a less experienced cook. If I had any complaint it was that there were a lot of recipes relying on a couple of the same ingredients (aubergine, jackfruit and coconut) so if you A good range of recipes, especially for vegan converts who want to find substitutes for their old meaty favourites, and generally easy to adapt for those of us who are looking to cut down on meat and dairy rather than give up entirely.

If I had any complaint it was that there were a lot of recipes relying on a couple of the same ingredients (aubergine, jackfruit and coconut) so if you don't like any of those the book becomes less useful - almost the entire desert chapter was a write-off for me because of the coconut cream & milk that kept turning up in every ingredient list.

    Really? A four star review for a cookbook? Well, yes. If youre wanting to eat more meat-free meals but dont want to spend most of your life shopping, preparing, and cooking complicated likes of pulses, this is the book for you. Jack Monroe has always produced excellent books that, in accordance with her admirable support to food banks & otherwise addressing the issue of food poverty, show how changes to ones diet can be empowering, cheap & straightforward. This one is no different. And Really? A four star review for a cookbook? Well, yes.

And JM’s voice comes through in the narrative around each recipe, like all the best food writers, and shows she has a wicked sense of humour as well as a wicked way with a bullet blender.

    Confession time: Ive never reviewed a cookbook on my blog before. Ive shown pictures of recipes Ive made from cookbooks and recipes Ive invented but never really discussed the cookbook as a whole. Vegan(ish) is a cookbook about cooking vegan, but it will appeal to those who are vegetarian or wanting to eat more plant-based food. I fall into the latter category and Im always on the lookout for recipes that combine new flavours or ways of using plants for food. I must admit that on the first flick Confession time: I’ve never reviewed a cookbook on my blog before. I’ve shown pictures of recipes I’ve made from cookbooks and recipes I’ve invented but never really discussed the cookbook as a whole. Vegan(ish) is a cookbook about cooking vegan, but it will appeal to those who are vegetarian or wanting to eat more plant-based food. I fall into the latter category and I’m always on the lookout for recipes that combine new flavours or ways of using plants for food. I must admit that on the first flick through Vegan(ish) that I was really surprised about the amount of jackfruit used. I like to eat jackfruit in the tropics, but why were there so many recipes? The answer is simple if I’d read the introduction to the book in the first place – it has the texture of meat and with the right marinade can seem like pulled pork, beef or chicken. If using jackfruit as a savory item is not your thing, you can substitute meat if you eat it or various meat substitutes. That’s the great thing about Vegan(ish) – the recipes are very open to substitution and Monroe offers some tips on how to do so if you aren’t confident. As my primary cooking interest is baking, I thought I would put to the test a vegan baked good. Cakes with chickpea are okay, but I’m always looking for the next thing that will be able to fool my non-vegan friends. So on a very humid summer day, I tried my hand at the peanut butter crumble cookies. These contain ingredients that are staples of many households (cooking oil, peanut butter, golden syrup, sugar and flour) so there was no need to buy anything else. There are tips for modifying the flavour, such as using jam. The recipe was very simple, but because I was hot and lazy, I made my cookies in a Thermomix. It’s certainly not necessary, but it’s very easy to ‘convert’ the recipe. The dough came together very easily and didn’t become too liquid on rolling the balls. (For reference it was about 32°C, maybe more with the oven on). Each ball kept its shape and there was no need to refrigerate the dough. I was pretty impressed by this. The dough is lovely to work with. You could add nuts or chocolate chips to the dough if you wanted. My cookies were a bit smaller, so I made about 20. The cookies browned nicely and I didn’t need to add any extra baking time. The hardest part was waiting for them to cool on the trays. It was worth it because they did not crumble at all! As for the taste test, they tasted lovely! Nobody asked if they were a different recipe or what they had in them. The golden syrup flavour intensified over the working week and people kept eating them, which is always a good sign! They were also sweet without being over the top. I’d definitely make them again. I’m also interested in some of the main meals for cooler weather, such as the Thai-inspired curry and the Cuban black bean soup. There are some pasta dishes I can use as for midweek meals as they aren’t too fiddly or contain ingredients I’ll forget to buy. Overall, if you are interested in expanding your plant-based repertoire, Vegan(ish) is a great book to check out. Please visit my blog for pictures of my baking with this book: http://samstillreading.wordpress.com Thanks to Pan Macmillan for the copy of this book. My opinions are honest.

Jack really emphasises the joy of cooking from home, to the point you'll prefer sharing her takeaway dupes to any expensive £20 meal. Jack's accessible recipes have always been a godsend for vegans, because she focuses on affordability; super important for those of us who have to balance ethics with budgetary constraints. This book proves you don't have to be rich to eat vegan. And you can make hearty meals to share with loved ones of all dietary persuasions.

    This is a proper vegan cookbook, make no mistake as some might from the title (plenty of half hearted efforts knocking about) It's a very interesting mixed approach and feels like a bit of a departure from her previous books. So there's quite a lot of jackfruit and coconut milk/cream here, there's vegan cheese, and some quite long lists of ingredients and not quite so 'bung it all in' But the usual general unprecious vibe is there and the discussion of different brands and types of 'alternatives' This is a proper vegan cookbook, make no mistake as some might from the title (plenty of half hearted efforts knocking about) It's a very interesting mixed approach and feels like a bit of a departure from her previous books.

Plenty I want to make here.
