I adore Angela Liddon, as so many of you do. She brought Green Monsters, Overnight Oats and breakfast parfaits into my life. She is the author of the vegan blog that all of my non vegan friends are obsessed with (without even noticing the lack of eggs, meat, dairy, etc.). Her incredible photos of bowls, salads, smoothies and parfaits always make those amazing “best of” lists, Pinterest pages, and on-line magazine slideshows. She is the vegan ambassador we all need, the one who just gets everyone so excited about eating plants, they kind of forget about those others foods.
Plus, if you’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting Angela, you know that all of these results come from a place of absolute generosity. She’s beautiful, smart, warm and fun. Basically, the internet adores Angela, because she’s everyone’s ideal best friend,
And now, our best friend has a book!
Not only has she filled its pages with incredible recipes, helpful hints and her regular friendly wit, but she’s also captured her incredible cuisine in stunning photographs throughout. I was thrilled when Angela asked me to review a copy of Oh She Glows, because it gave me the opportunity to openly rave about all the amazing eats I’ve been enjoying since the copy of her book landed in my very, happy hands.
So far, I’ve tried the Mighty Chia Pudding Parfait
Crispy Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Winter Citrus Salad
and Cream of Tomato Soup with Roasted Italian Chickpea Croutons
Just like with every recipe I’ve attempted from her blog, the results are unbelievable; flavourful, healthful, and satisfying. Angela creates meals and menus that appeal to your palate. It doesn’t matter if you’re a grandchild, a grandparent, a vegan or not, she just knows how to tempt your taste buds. I have a bookshelf full of vegan cookbook but I know I could be very content, just eating from Oh She Glows from here on out.
So, up next I’m going to try the Empowered Noodle Bowl with Thai Peanut Sauce. If you’ve got the book already (smart, very smart) then try it with me and let me know what you think. If you don’t have a copy, here’s the recipe. Give it a go, I have no doubt you’ll be convinced that you need to grab your own copy of Angela’s beautiful book.
