I am so happy to announce that a new book I have worked on, My Vegetarian Braai has been published and is available in stores now as well as a Kindle edition on Amazon. It is not always you get the opportunity to style and photographed a book and I am super proud to share the end result.
**UPDATE** My Vegetarian Braai is the Winner for South Africa in the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in the Barbecue category. It will compete for “Best in the World 2020” with winners from other countries in the same category. This year a total of 225 countries participated in the competition.
My Vegetarian Braai is the brainchild of Adele Maartens and we sat down about a year ago looking at recipe ideas and over a few meetings and emails, the content of the book started to take shape. Adele quickly received the green light from Penguin Random House South Africa and the recipe writing started in earnest.
Miso and Butternut Parcels
We both contributed recipes and followers from this blog will recognize a number of recipes that have been adapted for the barbecue. The book also contains a whopping 45 delicious vegan recipes.
Braaied Feta with Chopped Cherry Tomatoes and Chopped Pesto
Spicy Braaied Chipotle Tofu Skewers
My Vegetarian Braai is not about trying to convert carnivores but rather to broaden the horizons of everyone who likes to light a fire and enjoy preparing meals for their families and friends. We also hope that readers will look at the photographs, say ‘I can make that’ and make it at their next braai.

With the growing trend of eating plant-based foods, the chances are that at some stage you will need to cater for a vegetarian or vegan and the aim of the book is to give a few new ideas and delicious recipes to satisfy the taste buds of every guest that sits at your table. We hope that even meat-eaters will be seduced by these tasty vegetarian and vegan recipes, which will make brilliant side dishes to accompany any barbecue or meal.
