Healthy Vegan: The Cookbook

Who are the authors? Niko Rittenau is a nutritional scientist with a focus on plant-based nutrition. He is also a bestselling author and a Youtuber. Sebastian Copien is a professional chef, cooking teacher, and the author of six cookbooks.

What’s it about? Melding detailed but easy-to-digest nutritional information with creative, flavour-focussed recipes, Healthy Vegan is a comprehensive guide to maintaining a balanced vegan lifestyle. With up-to-date food science laid out in clear, straightforward language, this book will help you to make informed decisions in the kitchen. You’ll learn how to combine the five ‘building blocks’ (grains, vegetables, leafy vegetables, pulses, and toppings) to create balanced and truly satisfying meals, as well as a host of tips and tricks to help you add flavour and nutrients to your food. There are over 90 recipes in the book, each designed to be mixed and matched with various other recipes, allowing you to customise your meals and keep your cooking fresh and exciting.

Recipes we love: Cauliflower Steak with Miso and Citrus Marinade, Baked Curry Rice Rissoles, Umami Bean Stew, Wholegrain Berry Tiramisu, Banana and Oat Cookies with Raisins.

Perfect for: Anyone who wants to make sure they’re getting all the vitamins, minerals, and macronutrients they need from their plant-based diet. This book is ideal for those new to veganism, and has plenty to offer to seasoned vegans too.
