Oh She Glows Cookbook Giveaway + Eat Your Greens Detox Soup

The Oh She Glows Cookbook giveaway on Carrie on Vegan | www.carrieonvegan.com

Who’s a fan of the incredibly talented food blogger, Angela Liddon? <raises hand>

I feel so lucky to have been sent a copy of Angela’s gorgeous book, The Oh She Glows Cookbook: Over 100 Vegan Recipes to Glow From the Inside Out, and it is absolutely filled to the brim with everything that we’ve come to expect from her: inviting, healthful, often decadent, yet totally manageable recipes that are made using real food ingredients.

Besides tons of new, never-been-published recipes, my favorite part of this book is the gorgeous photography. I am such a visual person and nothing inspires me more to get busy in the kitchen than to look at mouth-watering photos. I would estimate that nearly every two or three recipes has a full color photo and that really makes this book something special in my opinion. Oh, okay, fine. I also admit that I immediately flipped to the Dessert section of Angela’s book, ‘cuz girl knows how to make a mean chocolate treat.

I had the opportunity to meet Angela in person at Vida Vegan Con 2012 and she is as beautiful and sweet in person as she comes across online (that’s Ms. Gena Hamshaw between us):

In honor of U.S. VegWeek and Earth Day, Angela’s publisher has generously offered to send one lucky reader a copy of the book, as well as allowing me to share her recipe for Eat Your Greens Detox Soup with you:

Serves: 3
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons (7 mL) coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups (750 mL) sliced cremini or white button mushrooms (about 8 ounces)
  • 1 cup (250 mL) chopped carrots
  • 2 cups (500 mL) chopped broccoli florets
  • Fine-grain sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 1⁄2 to 3 teaspoons (7 to 15 mL) grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon (2 mL) ground turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons (10 mL) ground cumin
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon (0.5 mL) ground cinnamon
  • 5 cups (1.25 L) vegetable broth
  • 2 large nori seaweed sheets, cut into 1-inch (2.5-cm) strips (optional)
  • 2 cups (500 mL) torn kale leaves
  • Fresh lemon juice, for serving (optional)
  1. In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes, until the onion is soft and translucent.
  2. Add the mushrooms, carrots, and broccoli and stir to combine. Season generously with salt and pepper and sauté for 5 minutes more.
  3. Stir in the ginger, turmeric, cumin, and cinnamon and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant.
  4. Add the broth and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the vegetables are tender, 10 to 20 minutes.
  5. Just before serving, stir in the nori (if using) and kale and cook until wilted. Season with salt and pepper and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, if desired.

I’m thinking that the Oh She Glows Cookbook would make a fantastic Mother’s Day gift or birthday present for anyone celebrating this spring; I’m proud to add it to my cookbook collection:

    I love the Oh She Glows soups! I usually just follow my intuition mixed with what I have in the house, but if I had to pick, this would be the site that I would say that I frequent when I want to follow a recipe.

  2. anna says

    Oh She Glows! Just the name of the book is an inspiration. And her recipes…the answer to decades of poor food choices. Pick me! Pick me!

  3. Amber says

    I have become really attached to my One Dish Vegan cookbook. I am the only person I cook for generally [bf is carnivore, but will eat some of my creations] and don’t have a lot of fancy cooking experience. These recipes are simple to make and I can have leftovers for a few days after. It’s been really helpful in my transition because I don’t have to put a lot of thought into what I’m going to eat each day. And, I do love reading your blog and getting tips from you. And pinterest is always a great help! :]

  4. Anna C says

    I use allrecipes quite a bit and I also use The American’s Test Kitchen cookbook. I follow lots of blogs and try new recipes all the time!

  5. Kelly says

    I can’t believe I actually have all the ingredients for a recipe! I believe I know what will be for dinner tonight… thanks! 🙂

  6. Jana says

    I do tend to go to ohsheglows first when looking for a particular type of recipe. When I come across something anywhere that I think I might want to try, I put it in my pinterest folder.

  7. Steph H says

    What a delicious looking soup!! I will have to put this on the menu for next week. Thanks for this great giveaway!

  8. Terri Cole says

    At the moment, I’m recipe testing for Somer’s book (VedgedOut.com). So most of what I’m making is coming from her.

    (I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to answer the question here, or in the Rafflecopter.)

  9. Mindy K says

    My most commonly used resources are the Vegan Delish app, budgetbytes.com and fatfreevegan.com as well as my own recipe binder. I do really love ohsheglows.com too! Angela created some of my favorite fall/winter recipes =)

  10. Diana says

    I remember following Angie’s blog quite a while ago & loving it. Trying to ‘go vegan’ so I recently re-discovered her blog again & yours! Thanks for the great soup recipe.

  11. Paula says

    If I can get that rafflecopter to allow for me to get a chance at the give away I would love it. Thanks for sharing the yummy looking recipe.

  12. Kristine Howles says

    I have had two people who have told me it is a must have book … would really love the chance to win it. I went fully vegan in January of this year after 2 years of being vegetarian.

  13. Heather says

    It changes all the time, of course, but right now Isa Does It and The Engine 2 Diet are in heavy rotation. I’m all over the place with blogs. Besides yours I especially love Fat Free Vegan Kitchen, Oh She Glows, and Hobby and More. Thanks for hosting a great giveaway!

  14. Diana says

    Oh She Glows is the site I go to 1st as well as Fat Free Vegan. As a new Vegan (1/1/14) and a dh who just changed his diet to vegan, I’m now making all meals to feed our family of 5. My 3 young daughters are enjoying the new creations we all cook together!

  15. says

    That soup sound delicious! I’m so glad you were able to share it with us =)
    And I totally entered the draw *fingerscrossed*… although if I don’t win, I’ll just go out and buy it ;p

  16. Annette says

    The sites I use most often to find recipes are foodgawker and tastespotting. I’ve found and made some delicious recipes from those.

  17. Laura says

    I use oh she glows. A lot. Engine 2, anything in Brendan brazier’s website, and google which usually leads me to Pinterest

  18. Laurie says

    Love ohsheglows and happyherbivore websites! Love eating plants and being fit and healthy at age 54!!
