My impressions of Quick And Easy:

For those of you new to this style of cooking it is great to see the notes on swaps, for what can be used in place of hard to find ingredients. Ella also includes tips and tricks which are helpful to the novice cook. If you are looking for more information as to what is involved with following a plant-based diet then this book is a great resource.

What I made:

I made the quinoa bread using ordinary milk instead of almond milk. I am so over buying almond milk for recipes as I never use all of it. And if you have ever looked at what comes out of the container once it has been opened and left for a few days, you might not buy it. The bread had a great taste and I served it with the chunky Italian soup which was full of flavour. I also made the nut butter chocolate chip cookies, baking them in my muffin tin to get a nice deep cookie. Everyone loved these, especially Hannah.

  1. Vegan cooking is very popular right now, though I wonder how many people are subbing not-vegan ingredients like you did. I’m not sure I see what’s unusual about this book, though you seem to have really tried to write a nice review.
