About this deal

By simply popping your ingredients into a tin and letting your oven do the work, this cookbook creates simple and easy recipes for everyone to try for themselves. so, when i buy a cookbook because the pictures are so pretty that it doesn’t even matter that there’s no delicious meat in the recipes, i’ve already resigned myself to the fact that what comes out of my oven will not look like this: Who is the author: Talented food stylist and writer, Rukmini Iyer is the author of bestselling cookbook, The Roasting Tin. When Rukmini isn’t revolutionising the way we cook with her simple one-dish dinners, you’ll find her on photo shoots across London making all of the food look even more delicious. Learn the ins and outs of all of the most delicious Vegan meals in this recipe book full of 75 different tasty dishes! Give the coconut milk a good stir, then pour it over the beetroot and mix well. Return the roasting tin to the oven for 10 minutes.

From flexitarians to families, enjoy this accessible book for everyone who wants to eat easy veg-based meals to fit around busy lives! There was a lot I liked about this book but I have mixed feelings. Fundamentally, the style of cooking appeals to me and the recipes look genuinely appealing, interesting yet straightforward. But there were several elements that rubbed me up the wrong way. Perhaps most seriously, this is a book labelled vegan and vegetarian and it would be great for anyone wanting to build a less meat based repertoire... but actual vegetarians? The vegetarian section of the book has a lot of recipes involving a wide variety of cheeses... the majority of which are *not* vegetarian. This could lead to some awkwardnesses if lovingly and innocently prepared by people for vegetarian friends and relatives. Healthy ingredients, easy recipes, fuss-free cleaning, you don't need to buy extra utensils, and basically everything is suitable for batch cooking. A little gem.The ultimate vegetarian and vegan cook book. Seventy-five easy one-tin recipes: half vegan, half vegetarian, all delicious. Upon first read of the book, everything is presented really well, the photography looks awesome and the recipes seem to make sense. I’ve not seen anything in the vegan section that I thought I’d never cook – so that’s a big plus! The combinations look sensible and everything seems easy to follow (I have seen some criticism of the author in other books for poor proof reading of recipes – this is absolutely critical in cookbooks and something that happens all the time. I hate it when cookbooks have missing steps!)

Taste and season with more salt as needed and serve with rice or naan, scattered with fresh coriander and coconut flakes, if using. I liked this book and its recipes so much that I also bought the other books in the series. There are some similar meals, but overall I really like this set of books.But finally! A book with tons of amazing ideas, and for which you really just need a single tin you can put in the oven. Ik had als fantasievolle restjeskok al het één en ander samen gegooid maar in De groene bakplaat kwam ik geweldige combinaties tegen waar ik zelf nooit op zou komen. En Rukmini bakt dingen in de oven waar ik nog nooit aan gedacht had, zoals avocado en eieren. Ze geeft ook tips die ik nog nergens las zoals het steeltje van tomaten op de rijst leggen als smaakmaker tijdens het bakken (niet om op te eten). Has some minor issues as a self-published cookbook, but there are some good recipes in here for vegetarians or flexitarians who are looking to mix things up a bit.

Tip the gnocchi into a roasting tin along with everything except the ricotta. Mix well – make sure you’ve used a tin big enough for everything to fit in one layer. Transfer to the oven and cook for 30 minutes, until the gnocchi is crisp and golden. Remove the tin from the oven and increase the heat to 200°C fan/220°C/ gas 7. Give the vegetables a bit of a stir, then top with the breadcrumbs and parmesan and return to the oven for a further 30 minutes. Vegan recipes we love: Warming Sweet Potato and Mushroom Polenta with Tomatoes. Crispy Gnocchi with Mushrooms, Squash and Sage. Veganism is NOT a dietary preference; it is an ethical position that seeks to reduce harm as far as possible to animals.


Ik kook graag maar het moet makkelijk zijn, snel én met veel groenten. Ik heb dan ook zelf al de geneugten van alles in één pan in de oven ontdekt (rijst onderaan, groenten erop en vleesvervanger bovenaan). Maar dit boek tilt dat alles naar een veel hoger niveau. Hierin staan recepten die niet alleen lekker zijn maar er ook goed uitzien én die je aan bezoek kan voorschotelen, zonder schaamrood op je wangen (wat met mijn uitvindingen niet echt haalbaar is). Such a great book. The premise is the same as Iyer's first book, The Roasting Tin, where everything is cooked in the oven in one tin; there really couldn't be anything simpler.
