15 Minute Satay Noodles (15 Minute Vegan Review!)

A new vegan cookbook with a concept similar to 30 Minute Meals?

Spiced Tofu Bowl & A Review of Neighborhood by Hetty McKinnon

The concept of Neighborhood is mostly found in the subtitle: hearty salads and plant-based recipes from home and abroad.

Book Review: Bowl by Lukas Volger

Bowls are a staple in a vegan’s cooking repertoire. Toss in some grains or noodles, make a great broth or sauce, top with vegetables and herbs and you’ve got a quick, whole meal for a crowd. But - as a vegan now of many years, I felt that I’ve made...
