This review is based on our first attempt to use this recipe book; Spicy Dan Dan Noodles. The instructions are nuttier than a box of frogs, halfway through you will be questioning if it was written by different people in different time zones, by the time you finish you'll realise that if you follow it in any order other than printed it will make more sense. Purchase this if you like blending puzzles with cooking and time travel.
I love the Bosh boys and their recipes (I’m totally addicted to watching their videos!) But I’m not convinced by this, their 5th book in 3 years. I’m concerned they might be doing a Jamie Oliver and churning books out a bit too often as their recent offerings are not as good as their first two books. They are still miles ahead of other vegan cookbooks though in terms of passion and creativity. As soon as I heard this book was coming out, I preordered and even made 2 of the recipes from watching the videos online the week before the book was released. I made the Sloppy Joe Dogs as written and unfortunately there was way too much marmite included. They asked for 35g and I thought that’s a bit much, surely a tsp would suffice but decided to trust the recipe and go with it but I should have trusted my gut, it was waaay too much and totally overpowered the dish rendering it unedible and I do usually like Marmite. I will definitely make this again but will just use a tsp next time. Next up I tried the goulash with dumplings which in reality was just a vegetable stew with caraway seeds. The dumplings were awesome but the stew was bland and boring but I repurposed it as a Chilli a couple of days later. The speedy Spag Bol had me blending sausages and veg into a grey paste in the food processor Before cooking which I found rather unappealing and also not that speedy, any recipe that has me cracking open the food processor is hardly quick in my opinion. I wasn’t convinced by the ingredients either, juice of an orange and a cinnamon stick in Bolognese? I didn’t like this at all however my daughter did and ate a big portion for her tea so perhaps it’s not bad, it’s just me. I have several other recipes bookmarked to try so I won’t write it off just yet. There are several delicious sounding recipes and gorgeous photographs to drool over and I do appreciate a book which concentrates on dishes you can put together in a hurry.
I was disappointed by this long awaited third book from the Bosh boys. First recipe i looked at listed an ingredient 'Henry's mix of something and no reference of where to find it - not in index either. Also the usually yummy final photos didn't appeal. Perhaps I wasn't hungry enough. Sorry - other two books are better
it is okay but ..... other 2 vegan bosh books i have its waaaay better! i made first the velvet sorbet dessert.omg it went down in the sink.nobody like it :/ desserts are not the best but meals are good just made a fast lasagne..took me more than 30min but was really nice :DD
I'm not vegan but trying to dramatically reduce animal produce in my diet. Having eaten meat for 50 years I didn't have any real idea of how to cook without meat. I bought several of the Bosh books because their recipes are simple enough for everyday meals but interesting enough to feel like you're properly cooking.
I will start by saying that I am a meat eater not a vegan, my wife is vegetarian but the great thing about this book is that there is literally something for everyone.
Most don't require any really exotic ingredients, I didn't everything in my cupboards before trying these recipes but anything I didn't have was easily available at most supermarkets and nothing is really exotic. The idea of this book compared to their others is these recipes are pretty quick to make.
One thing I will say since eating more tofu/seitan and veg recipes is that I have had less digestive issues and feel much healthier overall, I still eat meat as I enjoy but I honestly don't feel the need to eat it all the time now, I'm quite happy to have one of these recipes. We have always struggled ordering takeaways as we have tried the local Indian/Chinese takeaways and it is clear that vegetarian/vegan offerings are not something they seem to care about as they taste awful and the texture is even worse. However some of the recipes in this book are an excellent substitute for a takeaway and are not only healthier but in my opinion more tasty.
Bought all the bosh books now and will continue to buy them. They don't shove a vegan agenda at you, merely nice recipes in a nicely laid out book. Its hard not to flick through the pages and not want to try everything in it there and then!
Bought this to be able to cook nice meals for my vegan friends , but this cookbook is just full of pasta recipes and a lot of "fake meat". I would much rather use my existing Ottolenghi etc. books and actually cook a delicious vegan main from those as they use organic and natural ingredients...
