[My Review]

Bish Bash Bosh is the ideal book for anyone plant-based, either full time, part-time or sometimes, who wants to be a little more adventurous with their cooking. The book includes a range of recipe types, from simple quick meals that take next to no time to create, through to the more in-depth recipes that take longer to prep and make, but definitely look worth the effort!

I really liked that this book included a range of meat-free options, from recipes that featured the wonderful mushroom as its basis, to those with tofu (when done properly, tofu is one of my favourite vegetarian alternatives to include) and even some seitan recipes. It’s great to have a solid, easy to follow recipe to create seitan, the ideal meat replacement (it’s got LOADS of protein in).

Some of the recipes are definitely ones for evenings when you have a lot of time free, and feel in the mood for a longer cooking time, but I for one always feel disappointed if a recipe book is just made up of lots of ‘ready made’ elements that are combined; Bish Bash Bosh doesn’t rely on that; instead Henry and Ian show the reader how to create the individual elements required, such as curry pastes and sauces, which then act as a basis for each brilliant recipe.

There are plenty of recipes that are packed full of vegetables, which is handy for those trying to be a little healthier, and there are also lots of side dishes and salads too (I’m one of those people who never think of salads as proper recipes, but once I make them I’m reminded why they can be so tasty, especially when using unusual flavour combinations). I wasn’t so bothered about the Christmas section, and felt like that could have been cut down, but you can’t please everyone!
