Five years ago, popular blogger Brandi Doming of The Vegan 8 became a vegan, overhauling the way she and her family ate after a health diagnosis for her husband. The effects have been life-changing. Her recipes rely on refreshingly short ingredient lists that are ideal for anyone new to plant-based cooking or seeking simplified, wholesome, family-friendly options for weeknight dinners. All of the recipes are dairy-free and most are oil-free, gluten-free, and nut-free (if not, Brandi offers suitable alternatives), and ideally tailored to meet the needs of an array of health conditions. Each of the 100 recipes uses just 8 or fewer ingredients (not including salt, pepper, or water) to create satisfying, comforting meals from breakfast to dessert that your family—even the non-vegans—will love. Try Bakery-Style Blueberry Muffins, Fool ’Em “Cream Cheese” Spinach-Artichoke Dip, Cajun Veggie and Potato Chowder, Skillet Baked Mac n’ Cheese, and No-Bake Chocolate Espresso Fudge Cake.

MAN FOOD I can’t lie. My hubs cooks nearly all our meals and he makes Man Food, as he wittily calls it. Nary a veggie nor fruit touches our plates, save taters or corn, as real men eat carbs! MOUTH-WATERING That said, I could be a vegan in a heartbeat and in a younger healthier iteration of myself, I nearly was. So I was thrilled to review THE VEGAN 8, bursting with 100 recipes made with just eight — count ‘em — eight ingredients or less. My heart went pitty pat just thinking about it, indeed it did, because these are mouthwatering, beautifully photographed creations! TO SWOON FOR! I’m talking ‘bout Elevated Avocado Toast, Pumpkin Pie Crepes, Cuban black bean stuffed sweet potatoes, Skillet Baked Mac n’ Cheese, even No-Bake Chocolate Espresso Fudge Cake. Oh my! Now I just gotta take over our kitchen and get to work. Thanks to THE VEGAN 8, we ain’t just eatin’ Man Food no more! Pub Date 16 Oct 2018 Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for the ARC.

The Vegan 8 by Brandi Doming 100 Simple Recipes Made with 8 Ingredients or Less A great book for beginners or those more conversant with vegan eating and cooking – this book has everything from meal ideas to how to make your own spice blends. There were several recipes I would like to try in the future. The book began with the reason the author took up vegan cooking, the impact it had on her and her family and how her blog came about. She moved on to the kitchen and the ingredients and utensils she prefers. Then the rest of the chapters dealt with food and recipes and included gorgeous photos to make the reader drool and provide incentive to head to the kitchen to create a meal. Thank you to NetGalley and Oxmoor House for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars
