The Veginner's Cookbook - The Ultimate Starter Guide for New Vegans and The Veg-Curious by Bianca Haun & Sascha Naderer of Elephantastic Vegan . . .
Where do I start with this beautiful book?? Bianca and Sascha take you on a wonderful journey as they share their own experiences with adopting vegan diets, their favorite essential vegan pantry staples, wonderfully informative kitchen hacks, and they provide you with 75+ recipes that cover the gamut of sweet, savory and everything in-between. And, what's a constant? ALL recipes are easy, approachable, plant-based, and DELICIOUS. I can attest!
I had an immense amount of trouble choosing a recipe to sample because they all look so tasty, but eventually I settled on trying their Life-Changing Frozen Chocolate. I mean, if I see "Life-Changing" how can I not try it?!
But first . . .

And that chocolate? It is LIFE-CHANGING...
We love our chocolate in this household and already have a habit of storing bars in the freezer and tearing into them while still frozen (who can wait?), so when I saw frozen and chocolate in the same title, they certainly had me intrigued!
What did I discover? This amazing recipe rivals all store-bought chocolate bars that I store in the freezer! I mean, I really could not tell the difference between this Life-Changing Frozen Chocolate and my favorite dark chocolate bars. That's a win in my book!
This chocolate is:
Has just the right amount of dark chocolate flavor
Is EASY to make
I really cannot recommend this cookbook enough. Whether you are vegan, or simply want to incorporate more plant-based dishes into your diet, this book has something for everyone! We know we will be returning to it again & again.
