Big Vegan offers up more than 350 recipes - everything from Pantry Staples through dessert. With two sections of color photos and an impressive influence of global flavors, this book is a winner!
We start out with pantry staples. Asbell gives us some basics with a decidedly different twist on vegan like Smoky Red Lentil Sausages (that use only 1/2 cup of gluten!) and an intriguging Veggie Butter with shallots and pureed carrot. Breakfast may be a Sweet Quinoa Pumpkin Seed Pilaf or Matcha Scones with Golden Raisins. A chapter on breads...Hemp Seed Dinner Rolls or Flax and Pepita Crackers...then comes Sauces & Condiments, Appetizers & Snacks, Salads, Soups, Side Dishes, Main Courses, Grilling and Desserts!
Some more to tempt you that just knock my socks off? Syrian Vegetable Slaw, Edamame Dumplings in Handmade Green Tea Wrappers, Kenyan Kidney Bean & Coconut Soup, Tofu, Beet & Pear Roast and Lemon Cake with Pomegranate Filling and Orange Glaze. Yes.
