The Oh She Glows Cookbook: Review, Recipe Feature, & Giveaway

After a blogging lull, I’m back with a fresh post. I finished and submitted my manuscript for Plant-Powered Families last Friday! That’s why you haven’t heard much from me in recent months, sorry for being so absent.

I’ll share more on that another time, because today’s post is dedicated to the wonder that is… The Oh She Glows Cookbook by Angela Liddon.

Oh She Glows Cookbook

I doubt there is anyone reading here that isn’t already a fan of the Oh She Glows blog. Angela is not just one of the most popular vegan food bloggers – she is one of the most popular food bloggers, period. She is dearly loved by her audience, for good reason. Her recipes are delicious, reliable, and wholesome, and she shares her food and life with an open heart.

I received a galley copy of OSG to provide a back cover quote, and even that copy was glorious. When I received the final copy, I was in awe. I’ve written four cookbooks, and none have had this presentation splendor. I’m not too proud to say that. The vegan cookery world has evolved. Expectations of plant-based cookbooks are higher, and this is a good thing. No longer is it enough to have recipes, readers want the full package of color and photographs throughout. This cookbook delivers. It is a stunning, comprehensive, glowing piece of work.

True to Angela’s work, this book provides a good variety of recipes that are easy, nutritious, and oh so delicious! And, true to Angela’s work, you will be mesmerized by the captivating food photos throughout the entire book.

Having the privilege to review and provide a quote for OSG, this is what I wrote:

If you can choose only one cookbook this year – Oh She Glows is it! Angela’s approach to vegan recipes is fresh, vibrant, and simple… and her connection to her readers honest and real. Regardless of your dietary needs or culinary expertise, Oh She Glows will become a beloved cooking resource.

About it in a nutshell. You’ll love this book, it’s a cooking resource that should be in every kitchen.

The cookbook itself is BIG! Beautifully so, broken down into these chapters:

  • my natural foods pantry
  • my favorite kitchen tools & equipment
  • breakfast
  • smoothies, juice & tea
  • appetizers
  • salads
  • soup
  • entrees
  • sides
  • power snacks
  • desserts
  • homemade staples
  • basic cooking chart

There are over 100 recipes, and they are well balanced throughout these chapters, with full-color photos for each. Every recipe, chapter intro, and tip is presented with Angela’s characteristic warmth, sincerity, and charm.

Angela generously offered a recipe reprint for this post. There are so many recipes I could have chosen! Knowing how much our kids enjoy  Vegveeta, and well, just about anything cheesy and dippy I just couldn’t resist making Angela’s Life-Affirming Warm Nacho Dip.

This dip is easy to make, and yet looks impressive. When the girls saw the final dish they said “whoa, what’s THAT?“! We all enjoyed digging in, and I quite liked the addition of spinach in the dip. You could probably add some other veggies too if you like, but it’s really quite perfect as-is. I didn’t change anything in the dip other than subbing green onions for the red onions, because they are a little milder for the girls.

warmnachodipOSGtext.jpg

When making the dip, I realized I didn’t have a cast iron casserole dish or other proper baking dish suited to this dip. (I do not have as much kitchen gear as you might expect!) I used a pie plate instead, and while it’s not the most attractive for photos, functionally it worked just fine (though it didn’t keep the dip hot for long as a cast iron dish would).

warmnachodipOSG2text

I hesitated to use my photos, because next to Angela’s they are rather elementary. But, I wanted to show you how it looked in our house, and assure you that any of you can make this dip. Even with kids running out the door to activities or hogging the kitchen table with rainbow loom production lines. 😉 So, yeah, when you pin this recipe, use Angela’s photo below!

Verdict? Loved by all! We scraped the dish clean, and not very polite sharing those last spoonfuls. Whoops.

So, on to Angela’s recipe, and her photo of this delicious dip…

You’d never know there isn’t a lick of dairy or oil hiding in this mouthwatering hot-out-of-the-oven dip! This dish is always a crowd-pleaser. It’s best when hot, so serve it on a plate warmer or pot holder so it stays warm for as long as possible. I like to bake it in a cast-iron dish, which keeps it warm for almost an hour.

Serves 8
PREP TIME: 25 to 30 minutes, plus soaking time
COOK TIME: 25 to 30 minutes
gluten-free option, oil-free, soy-free, sugar-free, grain-free

FOR THE CHEESE SAUCE:
1 cup (250 mL) raw cashews
1 cup (250 mL) peeled and chopped carrots
2 tablespoons (30 mL) nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons (30 mL) fresh lemon juice
1 large clove garlic
1 1⁄4 teaspoons (6 mL) fine-grain sea salt
3⁄4 teaspoon (4 mL) chili powder
1⁄2 teaspoon (2 mL) onion powder
1⁄4 to 1⁄2 teaspoon (1 to 2 mL) cayenne
pepper, to taste (optional)

FOR THE DIP:
1 cup (250 mL) chunky marinara sauce
1 cup (250 mL) finely chopped sweet onion
2 to 3 handfuls of baby spinach (about 3 ounces/85 g), roughly chopped
1⁄3 cup (75 mL) crushed corn chips or bread crumbs
1 to 2 green onions, finely sliced, for serving (optional)
Tortilla chips or Spiced Toasted Pita Chips (see page 91), for serving

1. Make the Cheese Sauce: Place the cashews in a medium bowl and add water to cover. Set aside to soak for at least 2 hours, or overnight if you have the time. Drain and rinse the soaked cashews.

2. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Lightly grease a 2-quart (2-L) cast-iron pan or casserole dish.

3. Place the carrots in a small saucepan and add water to cover. Bring the water to a boil and cook the carrots for 5 minutes, or until just fork-tender. Drain. You can also steam the carrots, if desired.

4. In a blender, combine the soaked and drained cashews, cooked carrots, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, garlic, salt, chili powder, onion powder, cayenne (if using), and 2⁄3 cup (150 mL) water and blend until silky smooth, adding a splash of extra water if needed. Pour the sauce into a large bowl.

5. Make the Dip: Stir the marinara sauce, onion, and spinach into the Cheese Sauce until fully combined. Spoon the sauce into the prepared dish and smooth out, and sprinkle the top evenly with the crushed corn chips.

6. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, uncovered, watching closely toward the end of the cooking time to make sure the corn chip topping doesn’t burn. Garnish with sliced green onion, if desired. Serve immediately with tortilla chips or Spiced Toasted Pita Chips.

7. Reheat any leftovers in the oven at 400°F (200°C) for 10 to 20 minutes, or until heated through. Store the dip in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 to 5 days.

  3. Julia Hause says

    I have made so many of Angela’s recipes that it’s hard to pick a favorite, but I really loved her lentil walnut apple loaf. The glaze is so good!

    The butternut squash mac & cheese is my fave, though I took her advice and used pumpkin puree, and I love it!

    The Protein Power Goddess Bowl – it’s what got me into eating kale and spinach! Now I can’t live without these greens!

  6. Marielle says

    Angela’s ice box chocolate pie is my favorite! The filling is incredible and quite the crowd pleaser.

  7. Stephanie says

    Though it’s truly hard to choose, I’m obsessed with the Weekend Glow Kale salad. I make it at least once a month, if not more.

  8. Joanne M says

    Variations of OSG Overnight Oats is a real “go-to” recipe. Have tried many of her recipes and loved them all!

  9. Britta Kallevang says

    I love her basic chia seed pudding and the zillion variations. Angela is creative, and that inspires me.

  10. Britta Kallevang says

    This is tough … but I’d have to say her butternut mac’n cheese casserole – with and without the cashews. She’s amazing!

  11. Sarah says

    I don’t think I’ve actually tried any of the recipes yet although I’ve read her blog a few times. I tried the “oh she glows oats” in Happy Herbivore cookbook. I really want to try the super chia bread and the granola bars.

  12. Alissa says

    There are so many of Angela’s recipes that I love such as all of her Vegan Overnight Oats, Trail Cookies, Detox Salad, Chickpea Salad, Banana Soft Serve, Eggplant Parm, Bean Balls, Green Monsters, Oat Bars too name a few! I would love to win the cookbook to try all of her amazing recipes!

  13. Sophia says

    lightened up summer granola! I make a batch every week and eat on yogurt, ice cream, or by the handful! I like to add extra nuts and dried fruit like cherries – yum.

  14. Kelsey says

    by far my favorite recipe from ohsheglows.com are the lentil walnut balls that I made for thanksgiving with the fresh cranberry sauce. even my meat loving brother and dad went back for seconds on those!

    There are so many good ones but I love all of her overnight oats recipes, particularly the pumpkin ones in the fall! :)

  18. Rachel says

    My most favorite OSG recipe is Vegan Overnight Oats. Since I saw them on her blog years ago they have been my go-to breakfast. So excited for Angela’s cookbook!!

  19. Michael Phelan says

    I love Angela’s apple maple lentil loaf. I know she gives it a more interesting name than that. We made it for our first Christmas as vegans and just loved it. Also appreciated how helpful she was in responding to our questions in regards to substitutions as well as freezing options. Dreena, both you and Angela are such important figures in the world of vegan cooking. Thank you to you both. (And please don’t knock your gorgeous cookbooks – they are absolute staples in our kitchen!)

  20. Chelsea Dodman says

    So hard to pick a favorite. One of my more recent favorites is her lentil loaf. Delicious enough to satisfy my meat-loving man. His words were: “This is definitely way better than my aunt’s meat loaf.” I agree, I agree.

  21. rebekah says

    I really like her veggie burgers with seeds but can’t wait to try her tomato soup with chickpea croutons!

  22. Natalie says

    I ALWAYS make your oatmeal recipes! Cookie dough is my favorite! It makes it so easy to dress up the make ahead steel cut oats ready to whatever I’m feeling that day!

  23. says

    My favorite lunch is the roasted garlic and tomato coconut soup. Its a tie for dessert between the healthy homemade strawberry jam oat squares and the almond thumbprint cookies!!

  24. Kelly says

    I absolutely love her enchiladas with avocado cilantro topping, so amazingly delicious, even my friends loved it when I held a vegan party!

  25. Nicole says

    My ABSOLUTE favorite recipe of all time is the glazed walnut apple lentil loaf…. it is so absolutely delicious and I love that even my non-vegan friends and family love it too!!! They ask for it all the time!

  26. Lisa says

    Doughnuts or green smoothies are my favorites. So excited to win Angela’s cookbook (please lucky universe pick me!)

  27. Crystal says

    My favorites are her nut butter recipes! Especially the Maple Almond Butter with Chia, Flax, and Hemp and her 4-ingredient Dark Chocolate Pecan Butter. Mmmmmmm…..

  28. Lisa Figueroa says

    My favorite are the Vegan and Gluten-free cake balls with 2 ingredient chocolate fudge frosting. I need to make them more often!

  29. Bonnie says

    I made the homemade Yolos yesterday with my youngest and I can not stop eating them!!

    I also love the peanut butter chocolate energy balls from her website. So good.

  30. Angela says

    My boyfriend and I make her New Year’s BBQ chili a lot. We really like the cornbread that goes with it too.

  31. Tara says

    Angela’s website inspired me to really get into vegan cooking, and led me to your work as well. I have really enjoyed a lot of her recipes (my meat and cheese loving boyfriend too!), so I’m not sure favorite is the word I’d use, but I’m obsessed with the dressing from the Rad Rainbow Raw Pad Thai right now!

  32. Karen says

    I only found Angela’s blog a few months ago and therefore have not made many of her recipes, but of the ones I have made, I think the butternut squash Mac and cheese is probably my favorite.

  33. Breanna Anderson says

    Morning Glow Overnight Oats!
    Overnight oats are my favorite breakfast, in general, and the flavors in that one are wonderful!

  34. Lolly says

    I love so many of her recipes, but I initially found her because of her many, many variations of Overnight Oats. I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed for this giveaway!
    I also just found your blog and love it! I can’t believe I haven’t seen it before! I’m off to check out more of your posts!
    ~Lolly

  35. Caroline Swinn says

    I have been following Angela for a few years now and am so pleased to see her well deserved success! I have many favourite recipes but I would have to say her raspberry almond thumbprint cookies are my go to cookie! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  36. Lisa M says

    Hands down, her Granola Nut Clusters. My office mates scour my office looking for them, and I can’t make enough!

  37. cynthia says

    Hard to pick a favorite, but I’ve probably most often made one of her versions of overnight oats… and the overnight buckwheat parfait is a nice variation on that theme.

  38. Susan says

    So many exceptional recipes to choose from, but the one I most recently enjoyed was her Feel Good Lunch Bowl … it’s perfection!

  39. Amanda L says

    I love all her recipes!!! I think my favorite throughout this frozen tundra of a winter though has been the Roasted Buddha Bowl. It’s like happiness and comfort in a bowl! So good :)

  40. LauraT says

    I love so many of Angela’s recipes, but her Overnight Oats is one of my favorites from anyone, and why I started reading her blog!

  41. Sarah Boschung says

    I love the Oh She Glows blog and have made many of Angela’s recipes. One of my favorites is the spaghetti squash with black bean guacamole. Everything is delicious!

  42. Sarie says

    I can hardly pick only one Angela recipe! I just love reading all the other favorites listed here! I would have to say the 3-Layer Almond Coconut Chocolate Bars are my fav! :-)

  43. Catherine says

    It’s hard to say which recipe is my favorite, but I think I’d go with Our Perfect Veggie Burgers. Even my non-vegan sisters and mother love it! Essential item in the freezer at home!

  44. Candy says

    Wow, you have so many recipes it is hard to pick a favorite! I don’t know if it’s a real recipe, but I like to use the trick of mixing nut butter with nondairy milk for a lower-calorie dip. So good!

  45. Jess says

    I love her double chocolate torte. Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy of Angela’s gorgeous cookbook.

  46. Jen says

    We just made the dip, except we mixed the cheese sauce with a jar of salsa to be quicker. It was really good. Even got rave reviews from the 3yo…even though I used chipotle chili powder instead of regular. :)

    But my fave Oh She Glows recipe is Jumbo Stuffed Shells.

  47. Thalia says

    One of my favourite Oh She Glows recipes is her Spiced Lentil, Tomato & Kale soup. My family has made it at least 5 times 😀

  48. Linda B says

    There are sooo many recipes from Angie that I loved!! But I’ve got to say that the chilled double chocolate torte has been a fave both for myself and for anyone it encounters! Love both you and Angie!! Thank you for helping us eat healthy and yummly!! 😀

  49. Jessica Quinn says

    So excited about the Oh She Glows Cookbook. Angela is my favorite food blogger – vegan or otherwise!

  50. Cassie says

    I love so many of her recipes, but my favorites so far are her Walnut Lentil Loaf, Cilantro Avacado Cream Sauce, and Smoky Butternut Squash Sauce.

  51. Chely says

    I love Angela’s Enchiladas and her Butternut Cheese Sauce. But everything I have made from her website has been stellar.

  52. Ana says

    My all time favorite must be the Protein Power Goddess Bowl. Everything from the empowering recipe name to the actual taste is AWESOME. Can’t wait to get that book!

  53. Lucia says

    Her recipe for chocolate peanut butter cups in a jar (which I adapted into a full size pie) is scrumptious! After one bite my meat-loving, football-playing brother requested it for his birthday dessert!

  54. Ana Z.. says

    I wonder what glorious cookbook would result in the collaboration of a couple of my favorite bloggers like Dreena, Angela, Isa, Kathy Patalski and a couple more. I get chills just thinking about this possibility 😀

  55. Heather B. says

    I love the recipe you chose, because I’m a sucker for hot dips and this one looks WONDERFUL! Can’t wait to try these recipes!

  56. says

    I’m not sure what my favourite recipe is yet, because I don’t have the book! But I’ve heard great things about the overnight oats. I would love to win the book so I can try them all!

  57. Tara says

    I love so many of her recipes but my favorite is the detox salad! So many veggies and absolutely delicious.

  58. Christine L. says

    I only just discovered OSG after seeing a tweet from the publisher relating to the release of the cookbook. I haven’t had a chance to try any of the recipes but have a TON of ideas after having browsed the site. My family and I are always on the lookout for healthy alternatives so both the book and the site will be a huge help!

  59. Felicia says

    I LOVE the lightened up protein power goddess bowl! Would love to have this book to try out more yummy recipes :)

  60. Jill F. says

    My favorite Oh She Glows recipes are Apple Pie Oatmeal and Avocado Pasta. That dip looks AH-mazing!

  61. Amber says

    It’s so hard to choose just one, but I’d probably have to say the Creamy Tomato and Mushroom Pasta. Love me some pasta, and this recipe is just perfect!

  62. Shauna says

    My favourite has always been the protein and goddess bowls, but my husband likes the pumpkin brownies.

  63. Holly says

    Her gluten-free brownies are amazing! Though I’m also a sucker for her butternut squash mac and cheese…

  64. Emily says

    There are so many favorites it is hard to choose… Currently it’s her lemon tahini dressing which I find excuses to put on everything.

  65. Beth says

    there are too many recipes to choose just one!! But I will say my go-to side dish is her roasted butternut squash and kale with almond pecan parmesan. yum!!

  66. Elaine W says

    We like the veggie burgers and the Cumin Lime Black Bean Quinoa Salad. I can make it and it lasts quite awhile in the fridge. the book looks awesome.

  67. Diana says

    Thai Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers for dinner with Peanut Better balls for dessert!
    (and I just got your Eat, Drink and Be Vegan cookbook and can’t wait to try some of your recipes too!)

  68. Krista says

    There are so many awesome ones to choose from, but I’d have to say the overnight oats are my husband’s favorite while my son and I love the butternut squash mac and cheese! YUM! We’d love to win this cook book!

  69. Maria says

    I can’t choose only one, but my kids LOVE the Double Chocolate Brownie Dough Balls. Love Angela’s recipes!

  70. Stacey Ferdinands says

    My fave recipe of Angela’s is her Butternut Squash Mac n’ Cheeze (although I am usually lazy and make with canned pumpkin). It’s super quick to make, healthy and delish!

  71. says

    How amazing is Angela?! This dip looks UNREAL but her overnight oats and banana bread protein bars have literally been a staple in my daily meals for years now!

  72. Amy Johnson says

    Her peanut sauce. O. M. G. Dip fresh veggie rolls, lettuce wraps or thin with a bit if water for dressing. Wowza, my fav!

  73. Joy Barry says

    I hadn’t heard of the Oh She Glows blog before yesterday, but I saw the nacho dip and I just had to try it. We made it for dinner last night and it was unbelievably yummy! My reluctant herbivores gobbled it down amid praises for the recipe. And it was so fast and easy to make. I have her book in my Amazon cart now, thanks!

  74. Michelle says

    She has so many wonderful recipes, it would be hard to choose just one. I am looking forward to seeing her cookbook, it looks great!

  75. Allison says

    love everything I’ve tried, but this week we’re loving her chocolate chip cookie dough larabars!

  76. Elizabeth says

    I love this blog also and I am so excited about the cookbook. It not only is beautiful on the outside, but from experience with her recipes, I know it will be a go to cookbook that I will use often!

  77. Kim says

    My OSG cookbook arrived yesterday! Everything you said is so true about the cookbook. My favorite is the Avocado Pasta! This is also my daughter’s favorite. She is away at college and I would love to win a copy to send to her at school. I can’t wait to try the nacho recipe. I also don’t have a cast iron pan so will go with the pie plate like you did. Thanks for the giveaway offer. Love your cookbooks too!

  78. Melissa says

    I know that Angela’s cookbook must be awesome, she is gracious, kind and has such incredible recipes! I’ve used several of her recipes as a base to adapt for my family. I don’t think I could pick a favorite!

  79. says

    I use her 2 ingredient fudge frosting quite often. It’s easy and if I’m out of either Earth Balance or powdered sugar, I can still make frosting!

  80. says

    Hiya!~
    I’d LOVE to win this book! I can’t pick just one of my faves because I keep coming back to her site over and over – I find myself drawn to a lot of her flavor combos!

    BTW, Dreena, earlier this week on my blog – I posted a variation of your Quinoa Hummus Casserole (which is one of my favor dishes of all time that you introduced me to) but I switched it up and added a sauce this time around! I gave you a shout out on my blog as well!

    Have a great weekend!

  81. says

    I have yet to try more recipes but through Angela’s great blog I found out how to make coconut whipped cream and loved her Butternut Squash Mac ‘n Cheez!
    I’d love to win this book!!!

  82. Lori B says

    I’ve been a fan of OSG since I started my plant based journey and am looking forward to this book!

  83. Jacqui Pappas says

    I just had a breaksat of overnight oats, which I love. However, that cheese dip might become my new favorite! It looks amazing.

  84. Corrine says

    My daughter and I love the Cauli-power Fettuccine Alfredo. We’ve already made it a few times and will make it again soon!

  85. Laurie says

    Dreena! LTEV is a BEAUTIFUL cookbook so don’t ever feel like others are showing you up!! I am also a big ohsheglows fan and am having a tough time choosing my favorite recipe of Angela’s. I think it is a tie between her Glazed Lentil Walnut Loaf and This Ain’t Your Grandma’s Sweet Potato Casserole. Both dishes have graced my dinner table over and over again! You are BOTH vegan geniuses and have made my journey to a plant based diet so FUN, YUMMY, and EASY!!!!

  86. says

    Great post and thank you for a chance to win Angela’s fabulous book. I whipped up her Cauli-power Fettucine last week and I’m hooked. I’m going to use this delicious sauce to make a pumpkin lasagne tomorrow, thanks Angela for the inspiration!

    Wow this really does look incredible! I’m so happy my copy of the book will be here next week! Looking forward to your new book too, Dreena!

  88. Angelique says

    Hard to pick one favorite! Her peppermint patties are pretty awesome. And Banana Foster Baked Oatmeal.

  89. Janelle says

    My favorite recipe of Angela’s, as well as my family’s favorite, is her Cauli-power Fettuccine “Alfredo.” It’s awesome! So delicious and so creamy. Can’t wait to get my hands on her new cookbook!

  90. Brooke says

    Her Weekend Glow Kale Salad is hands down the best salad I’ve ever had. I could eat it every day. Actually, I do, often!

  91. says

    I haven’t tried one yet, but I’m always looking for original yet simple vegan recipes. All of the old cookbooks sitting in my bookcase are from the archaic days when I still cooked omnivorous food, so I’m in need of something better!

  92. Becca F says

    All the recipes I’ve tried of hers are wonderful! I love her lentil loaf, green monsters, peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

  93. says

    I went through a phase where I made her toffee bars every second day for a week. I think I need one of those phases again…

  94. Deborah says

    I can’t remember off hand which recipe is my fav.. But I know there is two that I use regularly!!!

  95. Nicole Drach says

    I love Overnight Oatmeal! Easy and ready to go right when you are ready in the morning. So customizable to suit whatever season or mood! Xoxo

  96. Amanda says

    It is so hard to choose just one! I love the brownie pumpkin pie!! I also really like the cranberry, apricot, and pecan wild rice pilaf.

  97. says

    Since there is a limit to the number of blogs I can read, I wasn’t subscribed to Oh She Glows, so I have yet to try any of Angela’s recipes. That has changed, though! All the fabulous book reviews have convinced me to make space for her blog in my reader a few days ago, and her book is now on my must-buy-soon list, too. Just from reading some of the comments here, I now have a long list of recipes from her blog I want to try, and several recipes from her book sound like must-try-soon too!

  98. Michelle says

    I love all of her dessert recipes that I’ve tried, but the Peanut Better Balls are one of my favorites! Can’t go wrong with PB and chocolate!

  99. Amanda Miller says

    Everything Angela does is amazing but I absolutely love the 2-Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Frosting!

  100. Heather says

    I have never tried one, because clearly I live under a rock. I can’t wait to remedy that situation!

  101. Jacky Hood says

    so many faves but I’ll go with Overnight Oats as that is the one I make ALL the time (breakfast is my f avourite meal!)

  102. Amanda says

    I love cookie balls, so yummy….but love the green smoothie, I have an addiction to green smoothies

  103. Michelle says

    The protein power goddess bowl and the green monster smoothie are in regular rotation in my kitchen thanks to Angela!

  104. Heidi says

    I am in love with the Cozy Millet Bowl with Mushroom Gravy and also am a big fan of the Berry Bliss Oat Squares. My kids love them to death!

  105. Andria says

    The roasted Buddha bowl, for sure. Turns out roasting cauliflower is almost the only way to make me like it.

  106. Alex says

    Angela does not have a single recipe that is anything less than wonderful! Her Gingerbread with Spiced Buttercream might take top spot with me, though!

  107. Emily C. says

    I have lots of favorites from Angela’s site, but I guess my top-favorite would be her apple oatmeal because it makes getting out of bed in the winter worth it. Thanks!

  108. Tracy says

    Too many to mention them all! However, her classic green monster is my go to smoothie recipe and har Peanit Better Balls are a recent fav…

  109. says

    Dreena, I am at a loss for words. I really don’t know how I got so lucky, but to have my favourite vegan cookbook author supporting my own book is just an incredible feeling. I want to pinch myself! Eat Drink and Be Vegan was one of the reasons why I shifted to a vegan diet (and discovered how amazing the food can taste!), so really I have you to thank for being a big part of my journey. And your photos all look gorgeous, by the way! :)

    I love Angela’s Thai-Inspired Hydrating Cucumber Salad with Roasted Spiced Chickpeas. Great review makes me hope I win the book so I can make the recipes for my five grandkids.

  111. katy sparrow says

    oh my goodness, what a book!! that dip looks fabulous

    I love Angela’s cherry-banana-coconut butter bread!

  112. Melanie Connolly says

    I have tried so many yummy ones. I love her portobella mushroom pizzas and she opened me up to a the world of overnight oats, her sweet potato and black bean enchiladas were amazing.

  113. Terri Cole says

    Angela’s avocado pasta was one of the first vegan recipes I ever made. It’s as easy as it is delicious!

  114. Melissa Orobko says

    Have been following OSG for years and have loved Angela’s warmhearted spirit! In fact, her blog was the first vegan blog that I turned to when I made the switch. I cannot wait to get her cookbook and to share it far and wide!

  115. says

    I have been following Oh She Glows for a while now, and I credit Angela’s blog with helping me reduce my animal product consumption. My most recent favorite receipt of hers is the cauliflower “alfredo” sauce. So so good and so so easy to make.

  116. Ally says

    You and angela are both inspirations for veggie cooks everywhere! Can’t wait to get my hands on her new book. Thanks for sharing!

  117. Allyson E says

    I love so many of her recipes. One of my favorites is the Smoky Butternut Squash Shells and Greens. A true comfort meal!

  118. ellen says

    Looks beautiful! Recently we made vegan zucchini boats….great idea and so suitable to using whatever’s on hand!

  119. Katie says

    To choose just one favourite recipe is so difficult! It depends on my mood (and the status of my pantry). The recipe I’ve made the most however is her (in)famous Smoky Butternut Squash Sauce. I’m an addict :)

  120. Tiffany says

    My favorite Angela recipe is her famous vegan overnight oats!! Congrats Angela!!

    Dreena, congrats on turning in your manuscript!!! :) xoxo

  121. Jessica says

    I’ve tried quite a few recipes on her site, and I’m always looking for awesome juice and smoothies…. but wow. I’m pretty sure this recipe just took the cake! I’ve been in such a mood for creamy, cheesy goodness. Add a little kick and I’m good to go! This would be the perfect cookbook to add to my collection to show my omni (vegan-curious) boyfriend how to cook for me 😉 lol

  122. Eryn says

    I’m slightly embarrassed to say I have never heard of Angela before, but now that I have I can’t wait to try her recipes! I’m going to make this dip tomorrow and am so excited about it! My husband just had a not so great check up at the dr and we are making some big lifestyle changes. He will be so excited to be able to eat a “cheesy dip” like this sans cheese!

  123. Isabelle says

    I love so many of her recipes! I have to say she is the one who started me on overnight oats, The buckwheat breakfast is good also. Her version of the buddha bowl as well. And so many others!

  124. Leanne Howe says

    I am SO making this this month!Looks delicious…and while I’m at it I’m going to add her website to my favorites… :)

  125. Amy says

    This looks awesome. I love the falafel from Angela’s blog, and something she calls the “protein power goddess bowl”- lentils, grains, and greens with tahini sauce- so good!

  126. says

    Oh She Glows was where I first learned about the beauty of overnight oats!! :) I have no made nearly enough of her recipes – but I look forward to trying more in the future!

  127. Amy says

    We have loved every recipe of Angela’s that I’ve made. We really loved the Peanut Better Balls at Christmas.

  128. says

    I love all of her mouth-watering recipes but most of all, I love her chilled chocolate torte! I’ve made it several times and always enjoy it.

  129. Sara says

    I’ve made her This Ain’t Grandmas Sweet Potato Casserole a few times and its always a crowd pleaser.

  130. Jenn says

    I also had a hard time choosing a favorite. When I look at my “Tried and True” collection of Oh She Glows recipes, the Glazed Lentil Walnut Apple Loaf stuck out to me this morning. But in a couple hours, it could easily switch to her overnight oats, Butternut Squash Mac N Cheeze or Broccoli and Cheeze Soup…

  131. Julia Reeb says

    Oh.My.Yum. So many fantastic ones…the dip featured above, the noodle bowl, the avocado pasta, the walnut/pear/avocado salad….

  132. Maureen says

    Dreena,
    I agree that Angela’s recipes are Ah-Maz-Ing!! To pick a few faves from her website (I haven’t had the chance to try the cookbook yet)(I apologize for the butchered titles) roasted butternut squash with Kale, millet with mushroom gravy, seed balls – many others. But I have to tell you that Angela isn’t my only go-to recipe author – You are my other!! Your recipes never fail me! :) thank you! (Lentil loaf & rosemary gravy from LTEV is my go to comfort meal!!)
    Enjoy the day!

  133. says

    I have a moratorium on adding any more vegan cookbooks to our collection till I’ve made more recipes out of the ones we already own (so many great vegan recipes, so little time – what a wonderful “problem!”) But I’m making an exception in this case. Love Angela’s “Oh She Glows” recipes, and her cookbook would be well worth making room for on my crowded kitchen bookshelf!

  134. Lynne says

    I’m new to the vegan lifestyle and so haven’t made enough recipes to decide which is my favorite yet. The cookbook would certainly be a plus for me!

  135. Maggie says

    I’ve made a number of her recipes and they are all delicious! That dip looks amazing! It makes me really sad that I’m allergic to cashews :(

  136. Gretchen says

    I am so excited for this cookbook. Our favorite Oh She Glows recipe has got to be the Easy Avocado Pasta.

  137. Kristi says

    The cookbook is beautiful! Last night, I looked at every single page. I can’t wait to try some of the recipes. I already love her overnight oats!!

  138. Lisa says

    I have made several recipes from your site but my fave is still the overnight oats. Makes breakfast easy and tasty!
