From Mark Reinfield and Jennifer Murray the authors of “The 30-Minute Vegan”, this book has tasty, healthy, vegan recipes inspired by the cuisines of China, Japan, Korea, India, Thailand, and more.
Having received this book as a gift a few weeks ago, I thought I would share my experiences of it. I have tried lots of the recipes and I have found them all easy to prepare and delicious. The book features recipes from Indonesia, Nepal, Vietnam, Korea, Tibet, Iran, and Afghanistan and everything I have made so far has been enjoyed by both my partner and myself.
So far my favourite dishes have been the Kung Pao Tempeh p.123 which involves baking the marinated tempeh in the oven, then it is sautéed with bok choi and cashews yummy!
The Tibetan Noodle Soup, p.202, prepared by my partner was delicious, a very warming, enjoyable soup, however I would probably prefer soba or udon noodles in it rather than the recipes spelt ones.

The ‘Peking Seitan A.K.A. Daffy’s Relief’ which also involves baking in the oven giving the sauce a lovely texture and making the seitan melt in the mouth.
And, pictured below, ‘Seitan and Broccoli’ which was really simple and quick to prepare, I added soba noodles to the mix at the end and served, delicious.

I would highly recommend this book to both those who need to prepare meals quickly and those who enjoy cooking as the books ease of use and easily sourced ingredients I’m sure will appeal to all.
*A quick update to this post, I have now tried the Seitan with Black Bean Sauce and it was really tasty too. It says on the recipe to marinate the seitan in spices and I would highly recommend doing so as it really adds flavour.
