My review of the book is here. Please be sure to check out this review and comment on it. And a preview of the listing of the recipes in this book is below.
I plan to spend sometime over the next few weeks trying out many more recipes from the book, I have already planned which ones I need to try out first, and I will post a few on my Tuesday posts here – with photos this time. The recipes I am really looking forward to try, arranged chapter wise below:
Spice Blends: Sichuan 5-Spice Powder and Persian 7-Spice Blend
The Three Protein Amigos: Tofu, Seitan and Tempeh: I have only tried Tofu before and plan to stick to it for now and have already tried the Savory Baked Tofu here
Pickles, Chutneys & Saucier Sauces: Am so looking forward to trying the kimchi in this book as well as the Toasted Hazelnut Crunch Dip(dukka)
Salads, Spreads & Sandwiches: Here, I am going to try all the salads one at a time since we all enjoy salads at home, and while I am at it, try all the spreads and sandwiches too!
Soups: The Andean Aji Bean Stew and the Ginger Peanut Squash soup are on my first-to-try list here.
Curries, Hearty Stews & Beans: A difficult choice to make here as well – Jamaican Plantain and Pumpkin curry? Or Spicy Saucy Soft Tofu(Ma-Po Tofu)?
Dumplings, Breads & Pancakes: I am not a big dumpling fan but want to try some in this book which look positively yummy. Am planning to try out the Afghan Pumpkin Ravioli with Spicy tomato sauce, the Sri Lankan Coconut Roti (we love coconut!), and the Turkish Zucchini pancakes
Asian Noodles to Mediterranean Pasta: What is not to love? Miles of slurpy food! My first choice here: Takeout Stir-fry noodles with Mushrooms and Greens..
Hearty Entrees: Moroccan Vegetable Filo Pie (Bisteeya)
Robust Vegetable Entrees & Sides: Have already tried the Roasted cauliflower in this chapter and next on my list is Jeff’s Lazy Sunday Stuffed Artichokes (I have been meaning to try a recipe with artichokes for so long now)
