“So Vegan in 5” is a new cookbook for everyone, not just for vegans. It features over 100 plant powered creations that each use only 5 ingredients. I love the simplicity of this. I often give up on cook books when I see a long list of complicated ingredients that I need to go out and buy. I’m also more likely to recreate recipes that are easy to remember. So Vegan In 5 contains recipes for breakfasts and brunch, light meals and salads, dinners, desserts, sides, dips and snacks as well as staples, such as milks, sauces and jams. Take a look at five of their main meals using just five ingredients each (a perfect meal plan for a working week):
This week our meal plan looks like this:
Monday: Creamy Spinach Ravioli
Tuesday: Ratatouille Swirl
Wednesday: Apricot and Rosemary Nut Roast
Thursday: Mushroom, Sage and Onion Wellington
Friday: Deep Pan Pizza
So Vegan in 5 by Roxy Pope and Ben Pook
Don’t let anyone tell you vegan food is bland, boring or complicated. Roxy and Ben, creators of ‘So Vegan’ – one of the world’s leading vegan recipe channels – will show you how to create fun and super tasty vegan recipes using just five ingredients, proving once and for all that vegan food is for everyone. So whether you’re a full-time vegan, a curious carnivore or simply somewhere in between, So Vegan in 5 is your go-to guide for eating more delicious plants, packed with budget-friendly and time-saving recipes for the everyday cook. Vegan couple Roxy and Ben launched ‘So Vegan’ just over two years ago with the mission to revolutionise the way we think about vegan food. Nothing like So Vegan existed at the time, so the couple decided to take a leap of faith: they devoted all their spare time to developing and filming plant-powered recipes from their cosy south London flat. Fast forward to today, their channel now has over one million devoted followers and their recipes reach a staggering tens of millions of people around the world every month.
This book is bursting with over 100 exciting, all-vegan, low-cost and low-ingredient recipes for the time-poor cook. You’ll find quick and easy breakfasts, simple and healthy light meals, classic dinners and indulgent desserts, plus so much more. As well as stunning everyday recipes and foodie tips, the book also contains helpful advice on how to live a more sustainable life.
I love creamy filled pasta so can’t wait to try Creamy Spinach Ravioli. I’ve put off making my own pasta for ages but this recipe looks so simple- and delicious. It would be easy to experiment with lots of other filled pastas after giving this recipe a go.

I love ratatouille. When presented in a swirl it becomes a dinner party dish. It would make a lovely vegetable side dish too.
A nut roast is not just for Sundays! As we like to enjoy family days out on a Sunday sometimes we’ll have a comforting roast midweek instead. I love a nut roast, I have to admit I’m not keen on apricots (just personal taste) so I may adapt this one.
I can’t wait to make and eat the Mushroom, Sage and Onion Wellington (recipe in book). Sage and onion is one of my favourite flavour combinations and this wellington is so simple to make (yet looks impressive). It uses ready made dairy free puff pastry but you can make your own if you prefer.
Friday is fake-a-way night and even better when it’s pizza and movie night! We already make vegan home made pizza but this Deep Pan Pizza looks delicious so we’ re definitely going to give this a go.

So there you have it, five meals for this working week each using only five ingredients. Which recipe would you most like to try?
