Do you love new cookbooks as much as I do? I am always excited to see new authors and their vegan creations hit the market. Today, I am talking about Gaz Oakley’s Vegan 100.

I have already made three recipes (I got permission to reprint them here) plus I have earmarked a whole bunch more. Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see what else I cook up. In the meantime, let me tell you more about this book.
