La Dolce Vegan

We've had this book from our local library this week. I borrowed it once before but wasn't inspired to try any recipes; however this time, the boys have been making meal plans and using the book as a reference.

I'm glad that they were willing to try some new recipes, though some of the meals we've made this week haven't been universally approved of!

However, tonight was a success! I made the Tip-Top Tofu Loaf, the Cumin-Fried Potatoes and the Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies. Wow, dinner disappeared like a trailer in a tornado. I own the first two books in this series - How it all Vegan and The Garden of Vegan, co-written by Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer. Sarah is going it alone in the third book, but it is full of all the good advice and fun stuff that I enjoyed in the other books.

I could see this book selling by just the cover alone, I really like it, although the cookies don't look so bad either. I have looked on Amazon at the other books too, I am sure they all contain great recipes. Going back to one of my posts, what a shame Marmite costs so much for you to buy, it doesn't really surprise me though, on some of our holidays we have had to pay an arm and a leg for a tin of Heinz baked beans. x
