This book covers all of the major Asian cuisines. The author converts them into vegan versions of the original dishes. Great idea for a book ! Unfortunately the recipes are bland versions of the originals. I understand the need to appeal to all tastes but I was looking for a more authentic flavor. The recipes are clear easy to follow. I added more chilies and spices to get the flavor I was looking for. Each country had several common dishes to try and explore. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 477003069X, Paperback)

The Asian Vegan Kitchen is a collection of recipes from across Asia, featuring the spices and the many tasty ingredients that have made these cuisines popular world-wide. It caters to the growing segment of people of all ages who have chosen to eschew animal products, yet still want to add some global spice and excitement to their diet.

There is one big difference between this and many other vegan cookbooks. These dishes do not use replacement ingredients for traditional recipes. Instead, author Hema Parekh - a noted teacher of vegetarian cooking styles in Tokyo - has selected recipes that were traditionally vegetarian, and have been enjoyed by diners for decades, even centuries. In doing so, she has had to make only minor changes, if any, for these recipes to be deliciously appealing to everyone: vegan, vegetarian or otherwise.

Over 200 dishes have been selected to cover a wide variety of tastes. Here readers will find vegan-ready recipes for everything from Japanss sushi to northern Indian curries, from Vietnamese spring rolls, to red-hot tofu, Chinese-style. Soups, noodle dishes and some desserts are also included.

The recipes are simple, with detailed explanations. Also included are over 50 mouth-watering photos and a comprehensive glossary.

Vegan cooking just became a lot more interesting.

A long-time vegetarian, Hema Parekh has been teaching vegetarian cooking in Tokyo for almost twenty years. She has written two popular books on vegetarian cooking in Japanese A Touch of Spice and Indian Vegetarian Cooking and is working on a third.

Parekh has lived in Japan for 27 years.
