Did you hear that? That was me squealing over this recipe from the one and only Angela Liddon from Oh She Glows. You are all some lucky readers because this is the 3rd cookbook giveaway I've held in about the past month. I think pretty much anybody with a pulse knows Angela's blog. If not, today is your lucky day and the chance to win her 2nd newest cookbook, Oh She Glows Every Day!
And the crowd goes wild.....
Oh She Glows was one of the very first websites I discovered when I first went vegan almost 4 years ago. I didn't follow any blogs back then, didn't make any recipes, I just did my own thing in my kitchen. But somehow I found her and each recipe I've made has been so delicious. Her 1st cookbook was also one of the few vegan cookbooks I've ever purchased myself. I was super excited to get her 2nd one. When I received her email asking me if I'd review it, I naturally said (screamed) yes!
Her latest cookbook features over 100 easy and quick vegan recipes. I cannot wait to make my way through the book. The layout is bright and beautiful and clean. Simple and clean design to go along with the recipes. I especially loved all the personal family photos she shares in her book. It gives such a beautiful, personal connection to the reader. It is jam-packed with 9 chapters, including Smoothies, Breakfast, Snacks, Salads, Sides & Soups, Entrees, Cookies and Bars, Desserts, Homemade Staples and The Oh She Glows Pantry. I love, love that she has 2 dessert sections. It's a known fact that I love to create desserts more than anything else and I know I would need a large section dedicated to just desserts as well. I was dribbling with drool looking at all of the desserts.
For this post, due to my curry addiction, I naturally chose this curry recipe from the book. No surprise there, haha! This Sweet Potato, Chickpea and Spinach Coconut Curry was so delicious and comforting, just as a curry should be. I loved the addition of the spinach. I did add a little bit of coconut sugar towards the end to really hit those spicy notes. I like a little sweetness to spices. It was really delicious and I know I will make it often. It was also really easy to make. She has listed that it serves 6, but I could have eaten the whole thing in 2 servings....not that I did that or anything...hahaha!
The spices are prominent and the colors are so vibrant for this dish, it was just so comforting.
Finish off the curry with a big squeeze of fresh lime juice. This really brings out all of the flavors, as it balances out the heat and makes it more complex and delicious. Don't skip it!
Please note: this recipe is not mine, it is Angela's from the Oh She Glows Cookbook, so I don't want anybody confused as to why there is a tiny amount of oil listed. This was brought up in the last cookbook giveaway I did. Please understand, I do not use oil in my own recipes and as noted below, I just cooked in broth instead of the oil and it worked perfectly, so there you go! Easy peasy.
