It has definitely been way too long since I last posted on here!
My husband and I are still continuing our meat free lifestyles and are constantly finding new recipes to try! He is still working on getting me to try more out there ideas. I will admit … I have my comfort zone! I prefer my food to be hot! But that being said, we have discovered different meals that I have grown to love that are served cold! Particularly the “Chickpea Salad Sammiches” off of the Post Punk Kitchen Blog. (http://www.theppk.com/2013/07/chickpea-salad-sammiches/)
I discovered we have definitely got our favourite Vegan Chefs that we turn to for inspiration the most! So I decided to share with you a list of our favourites!
1. Chloe Coscarelli: we love all things Chloe! We have brought many of her desserts to family events full of omnivores that people have gone crazy for!! Also her pastas are to die for! Creamy and delicious! We are definitely loving her newest cookbook “Chloes Vegan Italian Kitchen”. (Definitely suggest if you haven’t already checking out her books! http://chefchloe.com/)
2. Angela Liddon: love her blog and her cookbook! When I first stumbled onto the Oh She Glows Blog (http://ohsheglows.com/) I went crazy for all of her recipes! I was printing them out as I was seeing new ones to try and putting them on the fridge! When she released her Cookbook the “Oh she glows cookbook” I was so excited and it definitely did not disappoint! Her veggie burgers have become “The item” at our family bbq’s especially when paired with her grilled vegetable salad! You definitely can’t go wrong here! Her recipes are healthy and delicious!
3. Isa Chandra Moskowitz: I am soooo glad that my sister introduced me to her cookbooks and her blog (Post Punk Kitchen – the author of our homes favourite chickpea salad sammiches!) We have loved everything we have tried from here and her most recent cookbook “Isa Does it” has quickly become a staple in our home!
4. Robin Robertson: We are so greatful to Robin for providing us with so many cheap and healthy and of course can’t forget delicious recipes! As students these are all very important things to us – especially when paired with “cheap”! We have quite a few books by this author and would strongly recommend all of them! The two we use most frequently is the “Vegan on the Cheap” (of course 🙂 ) and “1,000 Vegan Recipes” – this one is amazing as it provides us with a lot of ideas and even includes basics! To me it is kind of like the Better Homes and Garden Cookbook but all things Vegan.
Of course there are a lot of other really talented Vegan chefs and authors out there! But these four are definitely our favourites! I hope you all check them out!
