The Vegan 8: 100 Simple, Delicious Recipes Made with 8 Ingredients or Less by Brandi Doming

Five years ago, popular blogger Brandi Doming of The Vegan 8 became a vegan, overhauling the way she and her family ate after a health diagnosis for her husband. The effects have been life-changing. Her recipes rely on refreshingly short ingredient lists that are ideal for anyone new to plant-based cooking or seeking simplified, wholesome, family-friendly options for weeknight dinners. All of the recipes are dairy-free and most are oil-free, gluten-free, and nut-free (if not, Brandi offers suitable alternatives), and ideally tailored to meet the needs of an array of health conditions. Try Bakery-Style Blueberry Muffins, Fool ’Em “Cream Cheese” Spinach-Artichoke Dip, Cajun Veggie and Potato Chowder, Skillet Baked Mac n’ Cheese, and No-Bake Chocolate Espresso Fudge Cake.

This cookbook, written by popular blogger Brandi Doming, is proof that making tasty plant-based meals doesn’t have to be a huge production. “The reason I love [this cookbook] is in the name—you only need eight ingredients or less to make every meal,” Velasco said. “They're SO GOOD and so easy. Whenever I'm lazy I turn to this.” However, just because the meals are simple doesn’t mean they’re boring. Just see if you can make it through this list of recipes without your mouth starting to water: Cajun Veggie and Potato Chowder, Fool ’Em “Cream Cheese” Spinach-Artichoke Dip, No-Bake Chocolate Espresso Fudge Cake. Yeah, we didn’t think so.
