Notes about Recipes in this book

  • "Mac & cheese" with coconut "bacon" bits

    • SugarFree_Vegan on April 07, 2020

      I found that the Bacon bits recipe makes the coconut very wet and unless you drain all the extra marinade (or make less or it!) they won't crisp up before they burn.

  • Beetroot, sweet potato, orange & walnut salad

    • SugarFree_Vegan on April 07, 2020

      I cheated with the beetroot as I only had a vac pac of it and therefore marinated the cubed beetroot in a little balsamic and oil and added it to the sweet potatoes for the last 15 mins of baking. Really tasty warm salad - my non vegan husband crumbled a little feta over his.

  • Vine tomato, basil & rosemary focaccia

    • SugarFree_Vegan on May 24, 2020

      Followed the recipe fully but the final result was somewhat chewy in texture, I was expecting something a bit more pillowy. I know it uses half wholemeal flour but even so not the best bread I've made recently.

  • Dauphinoise potatoes

    • Hannaha100 on July 11, 2020

      DH and I thought this was great - used two onions instead of shallots and reduced mustard to 1 tbsp. My secret was using frozen sliced potatoes from Iceland supermarket (a whole bag) and they worked perfectly meaning prep was minimal. Kiddos weren't keen but that meant we got seconds.

  • Coconut stew, rice & peas with fried plantain

    • jdjd99 on June 01, 2021

      Lots of ingredients, a lot of prep, ultimately tasty but maybe not greater than the sum of its parts. Would have liked if it looked a little more golden and creamy like the picture- mine was decidedly brown with a thinner sauce, even though I cooked it with the lid off for most of the cooking time.

    • Ladymafalda on May 24, 2020

      I've cooked this many times; usually leaving out one of the vegetables as I don't have a pot big enough. Absolutely delicious; serve with rice & peas See the recipe on

  • Carrot & red onion bhajis with mint yogurt

    • farfoff on July 25, 2020

      Subbed in 3/4 self rising cornmeal for the chickpea flour. I would probably dry the carrots off some to avoid excess flour being added.

  • Maple "pumpkin pie" pancakes

    • Mackbeth on December 04, 2020

      The recipe definitely needs pumpkin pie spices which aren't included. The pancakes tasted better once I added them. Coconut oil & coconut milk yogurt aren't healthy for you so I replaced those w vegan butter & almond milk yogurt. Also, I think I used the wrong kind of oats. He noted "porridge oats" & since I'm in the US, I used Silver Plate Thick & Rough Oats. The pancakes probably would have had less of an oatmeal consistency if I had used rolled oats which are smoother. Making the pancakes really thin helped make them less limp along w cooking them longer than normal.

Publishers Text

Tempted to try your hand at vegan food but don't know where to start? Or even just to make meat-free Monday a regular thing? Long gone are the days of vegan food being dull and worthy: Vegan 100 is bold, vibrant and gorgeous. Going vegan was the best decision Gaz Oakley ever made. Gaz, aka Avant-Garde Vegan, was once a meat eater and often didn't feel well. Overnight, he decided to go vegan for the health benefits, for his love of animals and to do his part in looking after the planet. He found that, as a trained chef, it was surprisingly easy to get big tastes and colours into vegan dishes without compromise, and he also noticed an improvement in the way he felt. The emphasis in Gaz's 100 tempting vegan recipes is first and foremost on FLAVOUR. From Deep Purple Soup to Sage and Smoked Chilli "Dog", through vegan "Fish and Chips" to Chocolate Tart and Raw Cacao "Cheesecake", it's all incredible-tasting food that just happens to be vegan. Delectable, beautiful and packed with dishes that are good for you, this is like no other vegan cookbook.
