  • Hi, thanks for the oil free recipes and cook book authors 🙂 It can be hard to find the oil free part, so appreciate it! I have one other recipe person to add as a resource. Not sure if someone already mentioned this site- The woman who runs this is so inspiring. If you create a free membership there are about 100 recipes (and more if subscribe for coaching and such but don’t have too!) Also you can watch some interesting classes and stuff. This link is too a free class about essential kitchen tools to start a plant based diet. Cheers
