Silk Road Vegetarian
Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten Free Recipes for the Mindful Cook [Vegetarian Cookbook, 101 Recipes]
by Dahlia Abraham-Klein
If you have a lot of vegan cookbooks, then you already know how boring they may seem after a while.
You know- Same old, same old.
But you’ll be happy to know that Silk Road Vegetarian is a breath of fresh air.
The book dives deep into the cultural and spiritual traditions of the Silk Road to show how Asian cultural traditions have influenced the cuisine.
If you’re like me, you might think that cooking gluten-free vegan Indian dishes would be complicated, but with this book it’s not.
Dahlia takes you on a personal journey through this book, making the cooking experience enjoyable, fun and SUPER easy that anyone can do it.
The majority of the recipes use ingredients that you can probably find in your pantry or local market, but yet the flavors are gourmet.
Some notable recipes in the book include: the Persian herb stew (Gorbeh Sabzi), the Stuffed Acorn Squash, and the Stuffed Eggplant.
Highly recommended for anyone looking for delicious and unique recipes, whether you are vegan or not.
