Raje’s generous and informative offering – 108 of her favourite vegan recipes with many gluten free options – is a sheer delight.
Perhaps you are already a vegan or a vegetarian. Or maybe you’re just starting to think about making an improvement to your diet. The benefits of a meat-free diet are a fact of life. As Raje describes in this book, you’ll feel lighter, stronger, and healthier, more clear-headed, more conscious, and most likely you will live longer.
Whether you are concerned about the ethics of eating, or you just like good food, this book will enrich your life. It is both an invitation to enjoy wonderful cooking, and at the same time tread more lightly on Mother Earth.
The cleverly crafted selection of recipes is stunningly all-inclusive. There’s grain and lentil dishes, soups and dals, finger foods, crepes and wraps both savoury and sweet, condiments, chutneys and sauces, and of course some great salads. Then there are rice dishes, pastas and pizzas, breads of all varieties, including croissants and flatbreads. The textures and moods of Raje’s recipes are excellently various – at once light, mellow, tender, crunchy, juicy, aromatic and spicy.
For those of you with a sweet tooth, there are desserts, creamy drinks, fruity beverages, smoothies and teas, and baked goods galore: pies, cakes and tarts, crumbles, muffins and slices. And there are doughnuts! Raje’s informative description of ingredients and spices used in her book is the icing on her many layered cake. All this, along with breathtaking photos, will surely induce you to drop everything and head for the kitchen.
For Raje, a passionate, compassionate and tender-hearted chef, cooking is an instrument of affection. Nurture your body and soul with Raje’s deliciously satisfying, love-laden recipes, and be amazed.
