Miss Eco Glam Reviews The 30-Minute Vegan

Everyone knows how much I love my food and yes some days I will spend the whole day in the kitchen planning and making food.  However, some days, I just don’t have the time to make something too fancy.  I loved the name of this book as it sums up what I am about sometimes. I only have 30 minutes to make something yummy and vegan.  And I am sure you feel the same way too, there is just not enough time these days for any of us to spend in the kitchen on just one thing.

This 348 page thick cookbook is full of approx 175 easy, quick and above all healthy recipes.  Things you can whip up in a flash if someone comes around unannounced!

With lovely colourful pages slipped in different sections of the book it will leave you feeling very inspired.

Vegan and Raw food is just so PRETTY. Full of bright colours and always looks so yummy. No more grey/brown  meals with only yucky colours anymore! Colour usually means healthy so go for the bright dishes I say!

What I LOVE about this book is the Raw Recipes are marked with a little love heart ♥  letting you know that its raw! So naturally, these are the recipes that I have wanted to try out.

However, I realise that not all of you who read Miss Eco Glam are Raw so I will give you a hint of what other recipes are in this fab book! :

There are 14 Chapters of recipes – here is a few I liked the sound of:

Indian Chai Latte, Mushroom Spinach crepes, Maple-Almond French Toast (yummy!!) coconut lime banana bread (sooo going to try this!) Breakfast burrito, English Muffin Melts, Fruit and Cream cheese Quesadilla, Wraps, Amazing Salads and many dressings, Soups such as Mexcian Tortilla Soup, Thai Coconut soup (my fav !) Batter-baked oyster mushrooms, herbed flatbread, Live Macadamia Nut-Ricotta veggie towers, Cheesy Broccoli, Nachos,  Chocolate-peanut butter shake, Baked Apple Crisp, Lucious Lime Pie, Food for kids, and SO much more, I haven’t even scratched the surface here.

These kind of recipe books should really be in every kitchen as even if you are not vegan/raw/vegetarian you can still use these recipes with other food you make. Food should be healthy and enjoyed!

The Sections are called: The Lighter Side of Life: Smoothies & Satiating Beverages; Snacks, Pick Me Ups & Kids’ Favorites; Lunches: Wraps, Rolls, Bowls, and More; Extraordinary Salads; Sumptuous Soups; Small Plates: Appetizers, Side Dishes, Light Dinners; Wholesome Suppers; Guilt-Free Comfort Food: Healthy Translations of Old Stand-bys; and Divine Desserts.

Don’t just take my word for it that this book is fab read what others have said about this:
