The best 7 vegan cookbooks by Attila Hildmann & friends
The unprecedented success of Attila Hildmann’s cookery books is proof that vegan cuisine is anything but boring. We’ve compiled our top 7 vegan celebrity cookbooks – all penned by stars such as actress Alicia Silverstone and music manager Andreas Bär Lasker.
Contrary to popular belief, the vegan diet is not all about restrictions. And now some big names, such as Alicia Silverstone or Attila Hildmann, are lending their support to a vegan lifestyle by publishing cookbooks with their favourite vegan recipes. Here are our favourites.
1. Attila Hildmann – Vegan für fit (Vegan For Fit)
"Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never--in nothing, great or small, large or petty--never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy." ~Winston Churchill "Gib niemals auf. Gib NIEMALS auf! Niemals, niemals, niemals - egal ob groß oder klein, wichtig oder belanglos, gib niemals auf, ausser bei Überzeugungen von Ehre oder Vernunft. Weich keiner Macht aus. Knie niemals vor der anscheinenden Übermacht des Feindes." ~Winston Churchill photo by @fritz.elsmann
With a total of nine cookbooks, Attila Hildmann has certainly found his own personal recipe for success. His latest book “Vegan For Fit” demonstrates just what you can achieve in 30 days with the right nutrition and exercise. In addition to his delicious vegan recipes, there are lots of great fitness ideas. Want proof that it works? Look how much weight Attila Hildmann has lost!
2. Björn Moschinksi – Vegan kochen für alle (Vegan Cooking For Everyone)
Björn Moschinksi is a vegan chef and, together with Attila Hildmann, one of Germany’s most prominent vegans. His message: you don’t need meat for food to taste great. Readers of his cookbook “Vegan Cooking For Everyone” are shown some exciting alternatives to schnitzel and dairy products.
3. Alicia Silverstone – The Kind Diet
Actress Alicia Silverstone has been vegan since 1998. Her book “The Kind Diet” is packed with expert tips and 120 meat-free recipes. She also explains how following a vegan diet is not only good for you but kinder to our planet too. What’s not to like?
4. Jerôme Eckmeier – Vegan. Tut gut – schmeckt gut. (Vegan – Feels Good, Tastes Good)
Morgen bin ich in der Zeit von 11.00Uhr-13.00Uhr in der Küchenwelt Gerdes in Papenburg, wer ein signiertes Koch- oder Backbuch möchte, kann gerne rum kommen ;-) Ich freue mich <3 Foto: Fotografie Boris Seifert #veganwerdenwaslosdigga #rocknrollveganer #vegan #jeromeeckmeier #kuechenweltgerdes #schärohm
Jerôme Eckmeier’s “Vegan – Feels Good, Tastes Good” showcases around 90 simple but exciting recipes, such as orange-avocado bruschetta, rosemary rösti with sour cream, mini vegan calzone, and carrot spaghetti with chilli-vanilla sauce. There’s also a section dedicated to vegan barbecuing.
5. Lea Green – Vegan With Love
Lea Green launched her vegan cookery blog www.veggi.es in 2013 and recently published her book “Vegan With Love”. Unlike Attila Hildmann, who uses replacement products such as soya, Lea focuses on lots and lots (and lots) of vegetables! From burgers and pizza to wonderfully moist cakes, Lea shows exactly how versatile vegan (and vegetable) cuisine can be.
6. Andreas Bär Läsker – No Need For Meat
As a former jury member on Germany’s biggest casting show “DSDS”, Andreas Bär Läsker is proof that fast food and veganism can go hand in hand. As well as running “XOND” – a successful vegan fast food chain in Stuttgart – he has also written the aptly titled vegan cookbook “No Need For Meat”. As well as lots of great recipes, Andreas reveals why he decided to become vegan. “If you can stick to a vegan lifestyle, the only animal you’re responsible for killing is the lazy pig inside you!” he jokes.
7. Nicole Just – La Veganista
Vegan, yes – missing out, no! This is the motto vegan blogger Nicole from www.vegan-sein.de chose for her first recipe collection entitled “La Veganista”. It’s a triumph of a book, which shows her grandfather (a seasoned butcher!) as well as readers everywhere just how diverse vegan cooking can be. What’s more, the recipes often have useful variations in case you’re missing a key ingredient at home.
And because we love trying out new recipes, here are three more cookbooks we love. These stars don’t follow a vegan diet like those above, but they all inspire us to eat more healthily.
Gwyneth Paltrow – It’s All Good
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is convinced that healthy eating is integral to looking good, and has banished sugar, gluten and lactose from her diet. Her book “It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good And Feel Great” has lots of healthy recipes, including some vegan fare.
Daisy Lowe – Sweetness & Light
Model Daisy Lowe’s cookbook is the answer to many women’s prayers. In “Sweetness & Light” Daisy proves that cakes and desserts can be healthy too with all 60 recipes entirely free of refined white sugar. There are also gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan options. We think Attila Hildmann and the others should focus more on vegan cakes and desserts too!
Paul & Stella McCartney – The Meatfree Monday Cookbook
Even Attila Hildmann has nothing on rock royalty Paul McCartney. The idea of a “meat-free Monday” was introduced in 2003and has the support of both the former Beatle and his daughter Stella. Paul’s cookbook has 52 different meat-free recipes – one for every Monday of the year. Could one meat-free day a week be the start of a new, more healthy you?
