I am so excited to introduce you to my first cookbook ‘Great British Vegan – by Aimee Ryan’ which aims to provide you with all your British comfort food classics with a plant-based twist.

🇬🇧 British Comfort Food, Reimagined
If you’re craving your favourite British comfort foods, but also want to embrace a plant-based lifestyle, then Great British Vegan is the book is for you.
Whether you’re vegan, flexitarian or merely interested in cutting down on your meat consumption, there’s no reason you can’t still indulge in all your favourite British classics, using easy-to-find ingredients.
With great-tasting, simple to make home-style recipes that will comfort as well as nourish, this book makes sure you’ll never miss out on Sunday roasts, full English breakfasts or afternoon teas again.
This unique take on vegan cooking reimagines over 80 classic British dishes including Full English, Shepherd’s Pie, Banger’s & Mash, Yorkshire Puddings, Beer Battered (To)Fish & Chips, Sausage Rolls, Welsh Rarebit, Scottish Shortbread, Eton Mess and Sticky Toffee Pudding.
📖 What’s Inside?
Almost every single recipe has a photo so you can see exactly what you’re going for!
And along with the recipes, I have included an ingredient guide to introduce you to some easy vegan swaps, some lesser known ingredients (although these are kept to an absolute minimum and you will already be familiar with 95% of the ingredients).
Plus a seasonal food guide and a stockists section in case you need help finding anything.

A Few Favourites…
My favourite recipes from the book.
Beer-Battered Tofish & Chips (page 90)
Not only does this beer-battered tofu look like the real deal but it also has added fish flavour, thanks to the nori sheet.
Served with probably the best chips you’ll ever make – which take a bit of effort but are totally worth it – and super-simple minted mushy peas,
Battenberg Cake (page 122)
Don’t worry, Battenberg is actually much easier to make than you’d think.
Not only does it taste wonderful, but just looking at this beautiful pink and yellow chequered cake is a pleasure in itself
Plantbased Full English Breakfast (Page 18)
Weekends aren’t the same without a fry-up. This vegan version will cure your cravings and is packed with plant-based protein and fibre
Bourbon Biscuit Tiffin (Page 161)
A rich, very-moreish fridge cake with lots of crunch.
This tiffin has been one of the most popular among my taste-testers – unsurprising, since it is also the most chocolate-filled.
