Miso aubergine and courgette- the book states to cook the aubergines at 220 degrees. I thought this seemed high so it's probably my fault. Alas, the aubergines burnt to a crisp halfway through the cooking time. Every oven is different so I'd try this again on a lower heat. This annoyed me as I just the whole jar of Miso which was expensive.
Green Thai curry- sooo bland. Considering the flavours that went into the paste, it was awful. I would try this again, but use only one coconut milk rather than 2 tins, as that's all I could taste.
Courgette, aubergine and pesto salad- this one confused me. It instructs you to preheat the oven, griddle the aubergines...then no instructions relating to if anything goes in the oven? I thought maybe the oven was to toast the almonds, but in her little blurb, she talks about roasting the veg. So confused about that one, I ended up just cooking it all in the grill and it was very tasty. Loved the pesto with almonds.
Whole cauliflower- again, this took 45 minutes less to cook than what Ella suggested in the book, but she did say it would depend on the size of the cauli (although my cauli was xxl). It was okay, I would do it again but would rather cut it into steaks first so that the seasoning covers the entire cauli and not just the outside edges.
Roasted new potatoes with coconut yoghurt- AMAZING. I will never cook potatoes any differently again!!! The book is worth buying just for this simple but incredible recipe.
Sweet potato falafels- thought they were okay, my partner loved them.
Granola- amazing, substituted the raisins for dried cranberries and it's delicious. I eat with oat milk.
Fudgy chocolate brownies- the recipe requires 330g coconut sugar. 330G!!!!!! 100g of coconut sugar is 385 calories. That is over 1000 calories on the sugar alone! I used 100g of coconut sugar and also cut down on the coconut oil (I used 90g instead of 130g), and they turned out really nice.
One other issue I've found is that the ingredients are expensive, e.g. in the granola, once you've bought the vanilla pod and all the seeds, you've spent £7-8 just for a week's worth of granola.
For all the above recipes ingredients, my online shop came to £62.
Sooo I did try a few things and had mixed opinions. I would definitely give most of them another go, tweaking them to my own taste and oven temperature, as well as trying out other recipes in the book. This is my least favourite of her cookbooks so far, but saying that I did love reading her story in between chapters.
I am not vegan, or even vegetarian, but I love food and cooking, and, like many people, I have become increasingly interested in incorporating more plant based meals into my daily life and that of my family. We now eat vegan food at least a couple of times a week, but what is fantastic is that these recipes can also sit really easily alongside meat or dairy, if you so choose. The salads and spiced peanut sweet potatoes seem particularly adaptable to sit alongside grilled chicken or halloumi.
I love the way that Ella uses layers and combinations of dishes in her recipes, so a meal could be a few dishes put together giving taste and texture variation. For example, last night we had the Rainbow Salad with the Smoky Aubergine Dip on the side. I cannot express how truly delicious this was! None of the dip was left at all (the bowl scraped clean) and a small amount of the salad went in the fridge, which I am looking forward to for lunch today! Also, it was so easy to put together. I had baked the aubergine earlier in the day, but everything else I did in around half an hour before eating. It was just a question of making sure that I had all of the lovely fresh ingredients in the house.
Having dips on the side is a revelation for me! I'm looking forward to trying the Creamy Artichoke and Edameme Dip soon and the Sri Lankan Curry tonight!
Over all I think this book is fantastic, particularly if you want to increase you veg intake. It has enlightened me as to the variations possible in vegan/plant based cooking. I previously thought of nut roasts and boring, dreary dishes. Deliciously Ella has set me straight. I think my family will be much healthier with this book in our lives (Ella states that just 27% of the UK population is eating their five-a-day and I totally agree that we need to make fruit and veg seem delicious, exciting and easy). Even my children are eating more veg thanks to this book and other of Ella's recipes.
I am not totally sure about the sweet stuff, as I am not vegan, I'm not sure that I will try baking without eggs and butter, but never say never! I really do like the look of her Mango and Coconut Flapjacks though, as they have so much less sugar in them and I think my children will like them.
I have one other of Deliciously Ella's books, which I have used a fair amount and enjoyed, but this seems like it must be her best yet. I very rarely write reviews, so the fact that I have chosn to today I think speaks volumes. Basically I would highly recommend this book!
