After a blogging lull, I’m back with a fresh post. I finished and submitted my manuscript for Plant-Powered Families last Friday! That’s why you haven’t heard much from me in recent months, sorry for being so absent.
I’ll share more on that another time, because today’s post is dedicated to the wonder that is… The Oh She Glows Cookbook by Angela Liddon.
I doubt there is anyone reading here that isn’t already a fan of the Oh She Glows blog. Angela is not just one of the most popular vegan food bloggers – she is one of the most popular food bloggers, period. She is dearly loved by her audience, for good reason. Her recipes are delicious, reliable, and wholesome, and she shares her food and life with an open heart.
I received a galley copy of OSG to provide a back cover quote, and even that copy was glorious. When I received the final copy, I was in awe. I’ve written four cookbooks, and none have had this presentation splendor. I’m not too proud to say that. The vegan cookery world has evolved. Expectations of plant-based cookbooks are higher, and this is a good thing. No longer is it enough to have recipes, readers want the full package of color and photographs throughout. This cookbook delivers. It is a stunning, comprehensive, glowing piece of work.
True to Angela’s work, this book provides a good variety of recipes that are easy, nutritious, and oh so delicious! And, true to Angela’s work, you will be mesmerized by the captivating food photos throughout the entire book.
Having the privilege to review and provide a quote for OSG, this is what I wrote:
If you can choose only one cookbook this year – Oh She Glows is it! Angela’s approach to vegan recipes is fresh, vibrant, and simple… and her connection to her readers honest and real. Regardless of your dietary needs or culinary expertise, Oh She Glows will become a beloved cooking resource.
About it in a nutshell. You’ll love this book, it’s a cooking resource that should be in every kitchen.
The cookbook itself is BIG! Beautifully so, broken down into these chapters:
- my natural foods pantry
- my favorite kitchen tools & equipment
- smoothies, juice & tea
- power snacks
- homemade staples
- basic cooking chart
There are over 100 recipes, and they are well balanced throughout these chapters, with full-color photos for each. Every recipe, chapter intro, and tip is presented with Angela’s characteristic warmth, sincerity, and charm.
Angela generously offered a recipe reprint for this post. There are so many recipes I could have chosen! Knowing how much our kids enjoy Vegveeta, and well, just about anything cheesy and dippy I just couldn’t resist making Angela’s Life-Affirming Warm Nacho Dip.
This dip is easy to make, and yet looks impressive. When the girls saw the final dish they said “whoa, what’s THAT?“! We all enjoyed digging in, and I quite liked the addition of spinach in the dip. You could probably add some other veggies too if you like, but it’s really quite perfect as-is. I didn’t change anything in the dip other than subbing green onions for the red onions, because they are a little milder for the girls.
When making the dip, I realized I didn’t have a cast iron casserole dish or other proper baking dish suited to this dip. (I do not have as much kitchen gear as you might expect!) I used a pie plate instead, and while it’s not the most attractive for photos, functionally it worked just fine (though it didn’t keep the dip hot for long as a cast iron dish would).
I hesitated to use my photos, because next to Angela’s they are rather elementary. But, I wanted to show you how it looked in our house, and assure you that any of you can make this dip. Even with kids running out the door to activities or hogging the kitchen table with rainbow loom production lines. 😉 So, yeah, when you pin this recipe, use Angela’s photo below!
Verdict? Loved by all! We scraped the dish clean, and not very polite sharing those last spoonfuls. Whoops.
So, on to Angela’s recipe, and her photo of this delicious dip…

You’d never know there isn’t a lick of dairy or oil hiding in this mouthwatering hot-out-of-the-oven dip! This dish is always a crowd-pleaser. It’s best when hot, so serve it on a plate warmer or pot holder so it stays warm for as long as possible. I like to bake it in a cast-iron dish, which keeps it warm for almost an hour.
PREP TIME: 25 to 30 minutes, plus soaking time
COOK TIME: 25 to 30 minutes
gluten-free option, oil-free, soy-free, sugar-free, grain-free
FOR THE CHEESE SAUCE:
1 cup (250 mL) raw cashews
1 cup (250 mL) peeled and chopped carrots
2 tablespoons (30 mL) nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons (30 mL) fresh lemon juice
1 large clove garlic
1 1⁄4 teaspoons (6 mL) fine-grain sea salt
3⁄4 teaspoon (4 mL) chili powder
1⁄2 teaspoon (2 mL) onion powder
1⁄4 to 1⁄2 teaspoon (1 to 2 mL) cayenne
pepper, to taste (optional)
FOR THE DIP:
1 cup (250 mL) chunky marinara sauce
1 cup (250 mL) finely chopped sweet onion
2 to 3 handfuls of baby spinach (about 3 ounces/85 g), roughly chopped
1⁄3 cup (75 mL) crushed corn chips or bread crumbs
1 to 2 green onions, finely sliced, for serving (optional)
Tortilla chips or Spiced Toasted Pita Chips (see page 91), for serving
1. Make the Cheese Sauce: Place the cashews in a medium bowl and add water to cover. Set aside to soak for at least 2 hours, or overnight if you have the time. Drain and rinse the soaked cashews.
2. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Lightly grease a 2-quart (2-L) cast-iron pan or casserole dish.
3. Place the carrots in a small saucepan and add water to cover. Bring the water to a boil and cook the carrots for 5 minutes, or until just fork-tender. Drain. You can also steam the carrots, if desired.
4. In a blender, combine the soaked and drained cashews, cooked carrots, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, garlic, salt, chili powder, onion powder, cayenne (if using), and 2⁄3 cup (150 mL) water and blend until silky smooth, adding a splash of extra water if needed. Pour the sauce into a large bowl.
5. Make the Dip: Stir the marinara sauce, onion, and spinach into the Cheese Sauce until fully combined. Spoon the sauce into the prepared dish and smooth out, and sprinkle the top evenly with the crushed corn chips.
6. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, uncovered, watching closely toward the end of the cooking time to make sure the corn chip topping doesn’t burn. Garnish with sliced green onion, if desired. Serve immediately with tortilla chips or Spiced Toasted Pita Chips.
7. Reheat any leftovers in the oven at 400°F (200°C) for 10 to 20 minutes, or until heated through. Store the dip in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 to 5 days.

Dreena, both you and Angela are such important figures in the world of vegan cooking. Thank you to you both. (And please don’t knock your gorgeous cookbooks – they are absolute staples in our kitchen!)

I’d LOVE to win this book! I can’t pick just one of my faves because I keep coming back to her site over and over – I find myself drawn to a lot of her flavor combos!
BTW, Dreena, earlier this week on my blog – I posted a variation of your Quinoa Hummus Casserole (which is one of my favor dishes of all time that you introduced me to) but I switched it up and added a sauce this time around! I gave you a shout out on my blog as well!

I love her Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal. The new book looks fantastic!
My daughter and I love the Cauli-power Fettuccine Alfredo. We’ve already made it a few times and will make it again soon!
Dreena! LTEV is a BEAUTIFUL cookbook so don’t ever feel like others are showing you up!! I am also a big ohsheglows fan and am having a tough time choosing my favorite recipe of Angela’s. I think it is a tie between her Glazed Lentil Walnut Loaf and This Ain’t Your Grandma’s Sweet Potato Casserole. Both dishes have graced my dinner table over and over again! You are BOTH vegan geniuses and have made my journey to a plant based diet so FUN, YUMMY, and EASY!!!!
Love the Basic Cheeze Sauce recipe. Great on sandwiches.
Great post and thank you for a chance to win Angela’s fabulous book. I whipped up her Cauli-power Fettucine last week and I’m hooked. I’m going to use this delicious sauce to make a pumpkin lasagne tomorrow, thanks Angela for the inspiration!
Favorite recipe is Roasted Butternut Squash and Kale with Parmesan style Nut Topping.
Wow this really does look incredible! I’m so happy my copy of the book will be here next week! Looking forward to your new book too, Dreena!
The yolos, OMG, the yolos!
The dip looks amazing, too.
Hard to pick one favorite! Her peppermint patties are pretty awesome. And Banana Foster Baked Oatmeal.
Smoky butternut squash sauce w/pasta & greens 🙂
Also have to say overnight oats. Love them on a busy morning.
Love her Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies! Yum!
My favorite recipe of Angela’s, as well as my family’s favorite, is her Cauli-power Fettuccine “Alfredo.” It’s awesome! So delicious and so creamy. Can’t wait to get my hands on her new cookbook!
Her Weekend Glow Kale Salad is hands down the best salad I’ve ever had. I could eat it every day. Actually, I do, often!
Melissa Montovani says
I’ve only made one of Angela’s recipes – her Peppermint Pattie recipe. However, I’ve been excited to try several others including the cauliflower Alfredo fettuccine.
donna zittel says
Her carrot ginger soup is fantastic!!!!
Lydia Claire says
I love the Cauli-power Fettuccine Alfredo!
I haven’t tried one yet, but I’m always looking for original yet simple vegan recipes. All of the old cookbooks sitting in my bookcase are from the archaic days when I still cooked omnivorous food, so I’m in need of something better!
Becca F says
All the recipes I’ve tried of hers are wonderful! I love her lentil loaf, green monsters, peanut butter chocolate chip cookies
I went through a phase where I made her toffee bars every second day for a week. I think I need one of those phases again…
Love her cookie dough bites.
I can’t remember off hand which recipe is my fav.. But I know there is two that I use regularly!!!
Nicole Drach says
I love Overnight Oatmeal! Easy and ready to go right when you are ready in the morning. So customizable to suit whatever season or mood! Xoxo
I love her chocolate chip recipe and use her lightened up lemon tahini dressing ALL THE TIME!
It is so hard to choose just one! I love the brownie pumpkin pie!! I also really like the cranberry, apricot, and pecan wild rice pilaf.
I <3 her chia pudding!!
Avacado pasta. Hands down!
Since there is a limit to the number of blogs I can read, I wasn’t subscribed to Oh She Glows, so I have yet to try any of Angela’s recipes. That has changed, though! All the fabulous book reviews have convinced me to make space for her blog in my reader a few days ago, and her book is now on my must-buy-soon list, too. Just from reading some of the comments here, I now have a long list of recipes from her blog I want to try, and several recipes from her book sound like must-try-soon too!
Carrie Ann says
Vegan bowl, so many yummy additions.

Angela does not have a single recipe that is anything less than wonderful! Her Gingerbread with Spiced Buttercream might take top spot with me, though!
Emily C. says
I have lots of favorites from Angela’s site, but I guess my top-favorite would be her apple oatmeal because it makes getting out of bed in the winter worth it. Thanks!
Oh I cannot wait to try this!
Question though the picture of the book is different on amazon?
Too many to mention them all! However, her classic green monster is my go to smoothie recipe and har Peanit Better Balls are a recent fav…
Nancy Brightwell says

I love her pumpkin pie smoothie recipe! She introduced me to blackstrap molasses.

Dreena, I am at a loss for words. I really don’t know how I got so lucky, but to have my favourite vegan cookbook author supporting my own book is just an incredible feeling. I want to pinch myself! Eat Drink and Be Vegan was one of the reasons why I shifted to a vegan diet (and discovered how amazing the food can taste!), so really I have you to thank for being a big part of my journey. And your photos all look gorgeous, by the way! 🙂
I’m so happy to hear you have wrapped up your manuscript…I’m SO looking forward to it!! xo

It’s hard to pick just one, but I love This aint your grandmas sweet potato casserole.
My family loves the peanut better balls!
To choose just one favourite recipe is so difficult! It depends on my mood (and the status of my pantry). The recipe I’ve made the most however is her (in)famous Smoky Butternut Squash Sauce. I’m an addict 🙂
Andrea R says
Sweet Potato Oatmeal Breakfast Casserole…yes please!
My favorite Angela recipe is her famous vegan overnight oats!! Congrats Angela!!
Dreena, congrats on turning in your manuscript!!! 🙂 xoxo
I’ve tried quite a few recipes on her site, and I’m always looking for awesome juice and smoothies…. but wow. I’m pretty sure this recipe just took the cake! I’ve been in such a mood for creamy, cheesy goodness. Add a little kick and I’m good to go! This would be the perfect cookbook to add to my collection to show my omni (vegan-curious) boyfriend how to cook for me 😉 lol
I’m slightly embarrassed to say I have never heard of Angela before, but now that I have I can’t wait to try her recipes! I’m going to make this dip tomorrow and am so excited about it! My husband just had a not so great check up at the dr and we are making some big lifestyle changes. He will be so excited to be able to eat a “cheesy dip” like this sans cheese!
Chocolate chip cookie dough blizzard!
I love so many of her recipes! I have to say she is the one who started me on overnight oats, The buckwheat breakfast is good also. Her version of the buddha bowl as well. And so many others!

I love Angela’s easy avocado pasta recipe! All of her recipes are so good! 🙂
I love her vegan chili recipe!
I love her Cauliflower “Alfredo,” would LOVE to have this cookbook – looks gorgeous!
paula rothman says
lentil walnut burgers
I love the baked oatmeal recipe from her web site, I was hooked on it for a long time.
We really like the creamy avocado pasta dish.
Oh She Glows was where I first learned about the beauty of overnight oats!! 🙂 I have no made nearly enough of her recipes – but I look forward to trying more in the future!
We have loved every recipe of Angela’s that I’ve made. We really loved the Peanut Better Balls at Christmas.
I love so many of her recipes! The one that comes to mind is her Lentil Walnut Burgers.
Laura J says
I’m still a newcomer to Angela’s blog, but that Nacho dip looks amazing!
gloria kersh says

I love the butternut squash mac n cheeze sauce!

I would LOVE to add this to my Vegan Cookbooks!!
Looking forward to trying this recipe. It looks delicious! Would love to win the cookbook.
I’ve made her This Ain’t Grandmas Sweet Potato Casserole a few times and its always a crowd pleaser.
I also had a hard time choosing a favorite. When I look at my “Tried and True” collection of Oh She Glows recipes, the Glazed Lentil Walnut Apple Loaf stuck out to me this morning. But in a couple hours, it could easily switch to her overnight oats, Butternut Squash Mac N Cheeze or Broccoli and Cheeze Soup…
Julia Reeb says
Oh.My.Yum. So many fantastic ones…the dip featured above, the noodle bowl, the avocado pasta, the walnut/pear/avocado salad….
mary beth says
Umm, anything with chocolate. She nails them all.
Ultimate Vegan Lentil Walnut Loaf. So yummy!
Angie Barrett says
My most recent favorite is the Cauli-power fettuccini Alfredo! So many great recipes!!
I love the lentil walnut apple loaf 🙂
I agree that Angela’s recipes are Ah-Maz-Ing!! To pick a few faves from her website (I haven’t had the chance to try the cookbook yet)(I apologize for the butchered titles) roasted butternut squash with Kale, millet with mushroom gravy, seed balls – many others. But I have to tell you that Angela isn’t my only go-to recipe author – You are my other!! Your recipes never fail me! 🙂 thank you! (Lentil loaf & rosemary gravy from LTEV is my go to comfort meal!!)
Enjoy the day!
I have a moratorium on adding any more vegan cookbooks to our collection till I’ve made more recipes out of the ones we already own (so many great vegan recipes, so little time – what a wonderful “problem!”) But I’m making an exception in this case. Love Angela’s “Oh She Glows” recipes, and her cookbook would be well worth making room for on my crowded kitchen bookshelf!
Nancy Howarter says
I love the Easy Avocado Pasta. I am looking forward to making the nacho dip it looks del.ish
The black bean and butternut squash burritos – they are a staple in our house! LOVE
Angela N says
What plant based eater could resist such a delicious looking cookbook. I hope I get a copy.
They’re all amazing, but it has to be the avocado pasta sauce. So easy, so yummy!
I made Angela’s sweet potato casserole oatmeal. My oh my, so good!
The Big Vegan Bowl. I love the versatility of it. Looking forward to trying this one.
I’m new to the vegan lifestyle and so haven’t made enough recipes to decide which is my favorite yet. The cookbook would certainly be a plus for me!
Kath @ Natural Kath says
Goodness, that’s a hard question – but I’ll say her Berry Bliss Oat Squares. Excited to now have this nacho recipe too! This is my fave so far of the ‘blog book tour’.
I have to pick a favorite OSG recipe? I would have to go for her GF brownies then. Oh my yum!
Shannon @ moveeatcreate.com says
My favorite Oh She Glows recipe is the loaded potato nachos. Such a wonderful, more nourishing twist on a classic indulgence.
Jane Valley says
Looking so hard for food I can make to make me feel better and bring out the real me!
I love those bite sized pies made in a mini muffin tin.
I’ve made a number of her recipes and they are all delicious! That dip looks amazing! It makes me really sad that I’m allergic to cashews 🙁
Soul-soothing African peanut stew!!
I am so excited for this cookbook. Our favorite Oh She Glows recipe has got to be the Easy Avocado Pasta.
The nacho dip is great!
The cookbook is beautiful! Last night, I looked at every single page. I can’t wait to try some of the recipes. I already love her overnight oats!!
I have made several recipes from your site but my fave is still the overnight oats. Makes breakfast easy and tasty!
