The Occasional Vegan
‘The story behind why this was written is equally as inspiring as are the dishes’ – Buzz Magazine
‘[Sarah Philpott’s] reasoning to try vegan food is sound. Less cruelty, more deliciousness, and some more healthful fare. But this doesn’t come with a glare and crossed arms. It is for us to enjoy. It is vegan food, and it’s for everyone.’ – Eat Happy Reads
‘If you’re looking for accessible, unpretentious vegan food to impress even the most sceptical friends and family, then this is the book to cook from.’ – Vegan Burd
The Occasional Vegan is a collection of 70 simple, affordable and delicious recipes, suitable for newcomers and long-time vegans alike, that will keep you well-fed and healthy. Author Sarah Philpott’s recipes are accompanied by the story of her own journey to becoming a vegan, exploring the ethical and lifestyle arguments for a plant-based diet. It’s a journey that more and more people are taking – the number of vegans has increased by 350% in the past decade – and food lover Philpott shows that embracing veganism certainly doesn’t need to break the bank. Her recipes are homely and easily cooked, suitable for old and young, gourmet cooks and the kitchen novice.
The Occasional Vegan is divided into four sections:
The Working Week: quick meals for busy people
Something for the Weekend: lazy brunches and Sunday lunches
High Days and Holidays: special occasions like birthdays, Christmas and Easter
Comfort Food and Children’s Favourites.
Each section is packed with delicious dishes and illustrated with gorgeous photographs.
Health, affordability, the environment, animal welfare: there are many reasons for becoming a vegan – or becoming more vegan – and in The Occasional Vegan Sarah Philpott shows how to do it, in the kitchen and in life.
