The Oh She Glows Cookbook

I've tried to slow down on my cookbook purchasing lately, but I got fully swept up in the Oh She Glows craze and had to have this one!

I've tried quite a few recipes from Angela's blog, including her quiche, pumpkin alfredo, taco salad, raw almond butter cups and muffins, and been really impressed by them all.

I love finding recipes on the internet, but I think there's something special about having a cookbook to leaf through and spatter with food. And I like to support people dedicating their time to create such worthwhile (delicious) vegan resources.

You can tell that a lot of care was taken with the recipes and photography in this book and that it was a labour of love. Angela's warm and approachable tone really inspires you to try her recipes.

Here are some recipes I've made from the book:

Mighty Chia Pudding Parfait

Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes with Easy Mushroom Gravy
Healing Rooibos Tea
Effortless Vegan Overnight Oats
Apple Pie Oatmeal
Portobello "Steak" Fajitas
Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites
Protein Power Goddess Bowl
Pan-Seared Garlic Tofu

The cauliflower mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy, portobello fajitas, chia pudding and the cookie dough bites are stand-out delicious. 

I look forward to cooking my way through the whole book!

Other vegan cookbooks I've blogged about: Betty Goes Vegan, Whole Grain Vegan Baking


  1. well you have made a good go of this book - I haven't bought it but I do like the sound of it - if only I wasn't trying to keep my cookbooks from taking over the house I might rush out to buy it - as it is I will see how long I can hold out

    1. I tried to hold out too but couldn't resist in the end! I'm trying to limit my book buying too as we are running out of space!

  2. You have put this to great use already! I am really looking forward to buying this too, and even have an Amazon gift voucher I'm putting aside for the purchase. I'm waiting until after we have moved house though :P

    1. Good idea :) I think you'll love the book!

  3. Everything I've seen from this book just looks divine! I haven't bought a new cookbook in aaaages (that's not to say I don't have heaps, but still...) and I owe myself a reward for something so maybe this is the one! Thanks for sharing :)

    1. Thanks :) this cookbook would definitely be a good reward! Another great one I bought recently is Rawsome vegan baking - if you love raw sweets...

  4. Ooh all that stuff looks so yummy! I might have to keep an eye out for that cookbook!
