    Robin Robertson's Vegan Without Borders, Robin Robertson.  
    Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
    I’m always interested in recipes suitable for my daughter. She’s been vegetarian for almost 25 years now, and of course all Vegan recipes are appropriate for her. These sounded so delicious too – its easy to assume Vegan food is all dull, uninspiring and bland, plates of boring cabbage and carrots, or some raw fruit, and no lovely creamy desserts or ice-cream, and yet here Robin shows us how far from reality we are when we think that way. On a day out at a Vegan animal rescue centre a couple if years back I tried soya ice-cream (even the kids hated it) , and soya milk in my coffee – eurghh – that’s not for me, and yet since then I've tried oat and almond milks and really enjoyed those. Rather than thinking its all horrible we need to try alternatives, in the same way as some people don’t like cheese, or rare meat...but will eat cheese sauce or well cooked beef. It’s still regarded as something of a kind of Western food fad to be a Vegan ( even being a vegetarian still raises eyebrows and is misunderstood, with food offered such as fish, and chicken which sadly many people assume fits the bill...) and yet its been a way of life for generations in the eastern world where animals are not so prevalent. We have so much choice in food, and yet stick to the same old ( I’m including myself here...)
    Interestingly at the same time as reading this I’ve just read a fiction book, The Accidental Alchemist, where the female lead is Vegan and that book contains some delicious recipes, and she talks about making quick smoothies for energy. Some of the meals mentioned there, roasted butternut squash with a lemon and tahini sauce, and shakes with blended nuts to replace milk, wonderful chocolate cakes and nutty, fruity cookies were just mouth-watering. Then there’s this book which has even more fabulous and inspiring recipes. Its all about opening your mind to possibilities rather than ( as I do ) sticking to easy tried and trusted, quick, dairy and meat based meals...I love reading recipes from around the world, and as I've said many cultures eat this way as a way of life, its normal for them, not the crank fad is still is regarded as here. That means there’s a wealth of interesting ideas and meals to try. Robin shares some of his favourites and I’m determined to try at least a few of these. Knock me out of my lazy cooking rut maybe . The bonus too with this type of eating is that with the right thoughts put in to what we consume it can be a very healthy, balanced diet, and helps our bodies to stay well. That has to be good news, in this ready meals, full of sugar and salt, way of eating many people are locked into. Studies keep showing our current lifestyles and diets are damaging our health, so maybe bringing this kind of thinking into schools where they can absorb the ideas from an early age would be a good idea.
    I’ve had this book as an epub so read it on my pc, but with most non fiction I think traditional print books work best. I Love my kindle for fiction, its so easy to carry around hundreds of books...but when it comes to cook books i like to browse through the pages, flicking them backward and forward to see what catches my eye. Can’t do that on a PC or kindle...
    Stars: Five, great read, full of interesting and inspiring recipes and ideas.
    ARC supplied via Netgalley and publishers.
