I am not vegan.

I point this out because despite not being able to come up with a single thing about myself that places me in Angela Liddon's target market, this is still a contender for my most favorite cookbook in the whole world...and I've barely scratched the surface.

I first encountered Liddon courtesy of Google; I was hunting for a lentil loaf recipe and Liddon's blog popped up. I distinctly remember almost passing the ohsheglows result by entirely because of the blog's name, which - probably in no small part because I'm neither a she nor the least bit glowy - sounded a little too twee for me.

I made that recipe, and truly loved it - loved it enough that it joined the ranks of my all-time favorites - but it wasn't until I read a review for this very cookbook, accompanied by a different recipe (Thai peanut noodle bowl) that sounded fairly delicious, that I started to consider buying a cookbook new when then only cookbooks I buy ever are used and cheap. (They're hard to justify when the internet is right there, you know?)

I'm really, really glad I bought it. I consider a cookbook a win when I find maybe five recipes worth making more than once. This statement may be a tad premature, but I'm pretty good at judging how well I'll like a recipe, and I have a strong suspicion that this one is going to have a (much) higher success rate.

One thing I've always disliked about buying cookbooks online is how difficult it is to guess what you're going to end up with. You buy a perfectly normal-sounding vegetarian cookbook and end up with 60 recipes using shiitake mushrooms or three chapters of boring salads that are only slightly different from the salads you came up with on your own years ago.

Format: Paperback
(Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for review at the publisher’s behest.)

Let me begin by thanking Penguin Books for sending me a copy of this cookbook for review about a month prior to its publication date. (Before it was even on my radar, actually.) As an avowed junk food vegan, it’s probably not something I would have picked up on my own – but I’ve discovered more than one new favorite dish in THE OH SHE GLOWS COOKBOOK!

As fans of the Oh She Glows website and blog already know, Angela Liddon focuses her culinary efforts on plant-based, healthy whole foods, free of chemicals and additives. Continuing this tradition, THE OH SHE GLOWS COOKBOOK includes 75 new recipes, as well as more than 25 fan favorites from her blog. Recipes run the gamut, from “power snacks” to smoothies, juices, and teas, as well as breakfast foods, appetizers, salads, soups, entrees, sides, and desserts. There’s a fairly wide variety of dishes to be found, from vegan versions of American favorites (Lentil Walnut Loaf, Grilled Portobello Burger, Lightened-Up Crispy Baked Fries) to more international meals (Creamy Vegetable Curry, Crowd-Pleasing Tex-Mex Casserole, Quick & Easy Chana Masala). Many of the recipes are gluten-free, or include gluten-free substitutions; and Liddon sometimes offers soy-free alternatives, too.

I tried just over a dozen recipes in preparation for this review (and, let’s be honest, because my stomach compelled me to!), including the following:

- Classic Hummus (page 89)

Never before have I been able to get my homemade hummus as smooth and creamy as the store-bought versions…that is, until now! The secret’s in the chickpea skins – or rather, the lack of them.

Bloggers have changed how we find recipes and cookbooks. "Oh She Glows" became popular with people who were searching out ways to cook and eat healthy foods vegan-style, with no animal products. The author told her dramatic story of going from junk food addict to a healthy, fit young woman eating delicious foods from her own recipes for vegan fare. The blog was a mega-hit and this is the cookbook garnered from the blog.

The recipes are unique--they are not the usual "boil up some lentils and strew them on lettuce." The author really seeks out the deep flavors in vegetables and tries to bring out their best flavor with methods you might not have tried. For example, her potato salad uses avocado for the creaminess--that makes sense. But she roasts the potatoes instead of boiling them and this serves to caramelize the sugars and make the flavor very rich. She includes asparagus rather than the traditional celery--so you can see how the flavors already have been built from the ground up, in a way, and not dependent on a highly seasoned and creamy dressing alone. That's the kind of brilliance that makes "Oh She Glows" such a valuable addition to any kitchen, even if you are not a strict vegetarian or vegan.

Liddon also changes traditional Caesar salad, which uses a semi-cooked egg and anchovy traditionally as the base of the creamy dressing. Instead of egg or Parmesan cheese, she purees raw almonds to make a milky, protein-filled dressing. This is right out of the vegan playbook, where raw cashews and other nuts are used to make "cream"--the protein and fat of nuts working well to create the taste and feel of dairy cream.
