Delicious Ella recipes The Plant-based Cookbook

Ella Mills, founder of Deliciously Ella, is an award-winning cookery author and entrepreneur, and a champion of eating well. She started off with her popular blog,, which has had over 110 million hits in the last three years. Her first book came out in January 2015 and has been the bestselling debut cookbook ever in the UK, and a New York Times bestseller. She has since released a further three bestselling books, created a #1 app and, with her husband, opened a deli in London, as well as launching a food product line across the UK.

Ella says:

"Deliciously Ella is all about celebrating what you can do with delicious, plant based ingredients.
It’s not about diet or deprivation, there’s no one size fits all, and everything I do can be adapted to suit you.

"I eat the way I do as it helps me manage my illness*, but I don’t want Deliciously Ella to be prescriptive in any way. Recent research has shown that only 27% of people get their 5-a-day in the UK, and I hope that the way I can help is by providing the most interesting, delicious ways to add more fruit and vegetables into your diet. My values are: Natural, Simple, Honest, and I hope that comes through in everything I do. That can range from trying to create delicious recipes with a limited amount of well known, readily available ingredients, to sharing the recipes for our products we sell in grocery stores."

* Ella discovered her passion for plant-based recipes after being diagnosed with a rare illness called Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (PoTS). She couldn't walk down the street, slept for 16 hours a day and was in chronic pain most of the time. Conventional medicine failed to help her, so she decided to completely overhaul her diet and overnight the self-confessed ‘sugar-monster’ gave up meat, gluten, dairy, sugar and all processed food. The results were incredible. Though initially far from confident in the kitchen, Ella started blogging about her new approach to food and posting recipes, and quickly amassed a huge online following.
