Angela Liddon is a popular blogger who’s been sharing vegan recipes on her award-winning site, Oh She Glows, for the last five years. Originally the blog was created as a cathartic outlet for Angela to write about her eating disorder recovery. The site became a place for her to connect with men and women who were also struggling to make peace with food. Now, Oh She Glows boasts more than 400 healthy recipes. Writing The Oh She Glows Cookbook was a natural progression, and a project that her fans have been eagerly awaiting.
The book will be released on March 4, 2014, but Angela was nice enough to give us a little sneak peek.
The Oh She Glows Cookbook: Over 100 Recipes to Glow from the Inside Out contains 75 new recipes not found on the website. The recipes are all vegan in nature but some are also gluten-free and sugar-free. The focus is on health and “real whole-food ingredients.”
Vegan virgins will enjoy the straight-forward approach of Oh She Glows. The author even provides readers with a chapter titled “My Natural Foods Pantry,” so if they’re new to vegan cooking, they can stock up on the necessary staples.
Adventurous cooks will appreciate the variety of recipes and a twist on some Oh She Glows original creations including The Green Monster!
Originally named for its peculiar hue and creative ingredients, The Green Monster is a smoothie that Angela swears by to boost energy and improve skin tone.

Each recipe contains an estimated prep and cook time so you can easily choose the best meal that fits your schedule. If you don’t have time for a big meal, page 173 will show you how to make a Creamy Avocado Pasta in about 15 minutes. When you’ve got at least 30 minutes to spare for dinner, page 185 instructs you on how to make Portobello “Steak” Fajitas complete with mushrooms and a special cashew cream.
The Oh She Glows Cookbook is easy to read and filled with bright, mouth-watering photos. Looking through the book, it’s hard to believe the author could barely cook when she started her blog. The book is an extension of her site and her passion for eating nutritious plant-based foods.
