My View:

Ella Mills (Woodward) is my go to author for great plant based recipes. I eat a balanced diet, a little bit of everything with a healthy a spin (90% of the time).  🙂  We are omnivores, with vegetarian offspring – so delicious, easy to make, plant based recipes are regularly included in our menu planning.

Ella’s style of cooking busts the myth that vegetarian food is boring and salad based.  Ella’s number one tip for encouraging friends and family to eat healthier is: “FOCUS ON FAMILIAR FOOD. If you’re having a real sceptic for dinner or trying to get an unconvinced family member to try a healthier meal, then always cook something that looks and feels familiar to them. Choose a classic dish with a healthy spin on it. Something like the Indian feast in this book with bowls of coconut rice, chana masala and aloo gobi. This is a perfect meal and your guests are never going to look at this and think ‘What is that, it looks terrifyingly healthy!’ and decide they don’t like it before they try it, plus it is really satisfying and hearty, which means everyone will go home full. So remember to go easy on everyone, don’t leap straight to raw food, or anything too unfamiliar and scary looking.” P. 11  A great tip Ella, and the Indian feast – perfect – this si a meal that can be enjoyed by all my family and friends alike.

 

A great book full of tasty easy to make recipes that will hold a treasured place in my cook book library.

  1. That Indian meal sounds so tempting, Carol! And I do like the idea of starting food that’s familiar to people, and then adding a twist, changing a few things, etc. That way, you get the enjoyment of things you already like, plus the benefits of ‘branching out.’ Glad you enjoyed this.

    • Indian food is one that is particularly suited to this “healthy ” re write – so much of the Indian food I love vegetarian – the dishes with chick peas, lentils ( dahl is a big favourite) , vegetable sides etc so this is one that easily can be eaten by most people..
