A host of celebrities including actor Joanna Lumley and athlete Tim Shieff have donated their favourite vegan recipes to a new plant-based cookbook.

The e-book, which will be sent out free of charge to all Veganuary participants, is stuffed with dishes like curry, cupcakes, and pie.

Among the stars’ plant-based recipes are:

  • Chickpea Burgers – John Bishop, comedian

  • Raw spaghetti pesto – Tim Shieff, freerunner and star of Ninja Warriors
  • Shepherd’s Pie with a Mediterranean Twist – Jasmine Harman, television presenter

“All the recipes are tried, tested and absolutely delicious. 

“From soups and salads to rich, appetizing mains and indulgent desserts, this little book is a unique introduction to plant-based cooking.”
