The Veggie Tree Spring & Summer Cookbook by Anna Valentine

Updated: Nov 28, 2018


The Veggie Tree Spring & Summer Cookbook boasts over 100 recipes that cover a range of vegetarian and vegan meals. There are mouth-watering soups, salads and sides, as well as main dishes, breads, and sweet offerings. It is a handsome production as a hardback, spiral-bound book that is easy for use in the kitchen. The photography is stunning too – full-page colour in many cases, and beautifully done.


The recipes provide vegan alternatives, as well as gluten-free or dairy-free options. The recipes are internationally inspired, with themed meals such as the Middle Eastern Mezze, Mexica Fiesta, and Veggie Barbecue.


Author Anna Valentine is a trained chef and has been a vegetarian for many years, so she brings a wealth of experience in creating this impressive cookbook. I was a big fan of the Capsicum and Avocado Lettuce Salad, the Lime Miso Dressing, and the Herb and Garlic Cashew Cheese. From the Savoury section, the Spanish Tortilla, the Lasagna and Veggie Burgers were a hit. From the sweets section, I couldn’t go past The Plum and Almond Cake, and the Peach Crumble Slice.


The Veggie Tree Spring & Summer Cookbook is very inspiring, with delicious food using nutritional, seasonal ingredients, that is very well done and easy to use.
