Flip Shelton, no stranger to RRR listeners and viewers of morning television, is a walking advertisement for healthy eating. As an athlete, mother and vegetarian, she radiates wellbeing. I loved her first cookbook Green (now sadly out of print) and have been waiting eagerly for her next publication.
Veg In: Simple Vegetarian Dishes from Around the World is a nifty book of easy to prepare “takeaways” made cheaply and healthily at home. She promises the recipes will save you money, calories and even time. From Greek dolmades to Japanese tempura, Flip sets out simple ways to recreate your favourite vegetarian dishes, as well as innovative baked potato and pizza toppings.
Veg In is a simple but effective cookbook. The recipes are uncomplicated, perfect for novices and under confident cooks. The recipes aren’t rocket science and won’t take all day to prepare. Being written by a Melburnian is an added bonus as all the ingredients are easy to source locally.
This cookbook is perfect for someone who’d like to extend their vegetarian repertoire, omnivores wishing to diversify their diet (or choosing to practice Meatless Mondays) and those newly “converted” to vegetarianism. The majority of dishes are vegan-friendly and many are also gluten-free.
