Vegan Planet

When I became vegan, I bought some cookbooks. One of those, Vegan Planet, I used a lot in the beginning, and then, somehow, not anymore. I don't know why - it looks pretty and the recipes were tasty. When I flip through it, I instantly remember the feeling of my first months as a vegan - a very good feeling of a summer full of discoveries and happiness and, most importantly, the friendship of some of the most wonderful people I got to know in my life. So my task last weekend was: Cook something from Vegan Planet!

For one day, I chose Chilled Ginger-Peach Soup with Cashew Cream - a soup that tastes like a smoothie! Perfect.

And for the next, Walnut Crusted Millet and Celery Root Croquettes, with the recommended Yellow Pepper Coulis. Very good! Although I did not taste much of the walnut crust, which is a pity.

Yeah, I will never become a food photographer :-)
So, if you are searching for another vegan cookbook for all occasions that looks pretty (no photos though) and tastes good, I can definitely recommend this one. It is very well suited for beginners, as it has a well-written chapter about "vegan basics", featuring nutrition, reasons for being vegan, hidden animal ingredients, and presenting food that the average omni has never used before, like flax seeds or tempeh.
