The Seasonal Vegan
“Sarah shows you how to eat a healthy, delicious and seasonal diet, in an easy and affordable way... The Seasonal Vegan is now my bible for all things seasonal eating, and I’m so happy to have it on my kitchen shelf!” – Everything’s Peachy
The Seasonal Vegan is a kitchen diary of seasonal recipes with a delicious mixture of fine food writing and beautiful photography. This guide to eating with the seasons takes a realistic approach to shopping cheaply and sustainably and proves that the vegan lifestyle is anything but expensive.
It debunks the myth that eating seasonally is solely for the middle classes. Eating locally grown produce can be less harmful for the environment, tastes better, and usually costs less, too. It also supports British producers – and therefore, the local economy – and because it’s fresher, it tends to be more nutritious. As well as tasting good, these dishes look beautiful and the book will feature photography by Manon Houston who provided the images for The Occasional Vegan.
Philpott tells us how and when to find the right food, for environmental reasons and nutrition values. The Seasonal Vegan features recipes for all seasons, with a section featuring dishes that can be enjoyed all year round, and menu ideas for special occasions. There are 70 recipes, each of which includes a diary entry.
