David and Stephen Flynn, aka The Happy Pear, are the owners of the renowned vegan-friendly Happy Pear Café in Ireland and authors of three vegetarian and vegan cookbooks to date, with a fourth set to hit shelves later this year.

Here we've rounded up 10 favourites from across their three books to get you cooking the Happy Pear way, and if you're keen to try our more of their recipes, you can download the ebook version of their second cookbook, The World of The Happy Pear, for just £1.99 for a limited time only here.
