This book is full of practical everyday recipes, typical of what we have come to expect from BOSH. I recommend it as a starter recipe book for anyone new to a plant-based or vegan lifestyle. And as someone who is 7 years into a vegan lifestyle, this recipe book has given me heaps of new things to try. Love it!!!

As I get older - just turned 50 (ahem!) I'm definitely moving towards a more vegetarian/vegan-ish diet. . . . and to be honest I feel a million times better for it! One example is that I havent had bacon or sausage for over 12 months, that alone has done me a world of good! I now tend to look at and choose veggie options at restaurants and functions if I fancy the look of them!
The book . . .
Never used any of the recipes by Henry and Ian so this is my first dip into any of their Bosh stuff.
From the get go I've gotta say that I love it! As somebody who's been growing their own veg for 30 years this book appeals to me big time.
Well written, clear and concise and easy to follow. Great photographs too! Some of the recipes are a bit fiddly but easily doable!
What have I tried in the week I've had it? From the 'Feast' chapter the Classic Lasagne had to be my first! Coming from an Italian background it had to be done and I'm glad this was my first meal from the book. Delicious! I made my own pasta for this (dead easy!) and I found it to be comforting, filling and very tasty!
Next was Broccauliflower Cheese from the 'Quick' chapter. Two veggies I do grow in my Liverpool garden! Super easy to make and a good kick off the jalepenos! Filling yet light in the stomach. I actually ate this 30 mins before cycling 9 miles to work and felt okay. No belly swishing around like a barrel of water!
The eye opener for me here was the 'Classic Chocolate Ice Cream' from the 'Desserts' section. I have a basic twenty quid ice cream machine and make my own ice cream but this was my first veggie ice cream effort and I was very pleasantly surprised! You don't need a machine - a whisk - a freezer proof tub and of course . . . a freezer! There's also a clean slare vanilla recipe that you can of course add your own flavour to! I make a caramelised burnt orange ice cream which I will try to incorporate into this version here!
All three recipes above - absolute winners for me!
