A few months ago I read an article about book clubs. More specifically, Cookbook clubs. Simply put, a cookbook club is a group of people who all decide to read the same cookbook, pick a recipe, make said recipe, and then get together to enjoy the results. The idea immediately grabbed me because a) I love cookbooks, and, b) I love eating.
After pitching the idea to my friends (and some friends of friends), we had our first meeting on May 13th to pick a cookbook. We decided on "Oh She Glows" by Angela Liddon. "Oh She Glows" is a fantastic cookbook, blog, and app. I'm not a full-time vegan, but if Angela was my personal chef I could be. The recipes are simple to make and I honestly have enjoyed every one I've tried.
My contribution to the group was the Protein Power Goddess Bowl. It's a flavourful, veggie-filled bowl with a delicious Lemon-Tahini dressing. Barley & lentils make it really hearty, and it's even better heated up as leftovers for lunch!
Some other memorable dishes from our get-together were the Crispy Smashed Potatoes with Avocado Garlic Aioli, One Bowl Chocolate Chip Cookies (gluten free!), and Golden Red Lentil Dahl (seriously, this dahl was off the hook, get the recipe here).
It was a great night, and a lovely way to bring friends together to enjoy good food. If you're looking for the Oh She Glows cookbook, follow the link on the cover photo above. My personal copy was purchased from Chapters, but I've seen it stocked at Costco occasionally. Keep your eyes peeled!
