Eating fresh, locally-grown vegetables each day is healthy for you and the planet--and now, with this Indian cookbook, vegetarian meals don't have to be boring!
This new vegetarian Indian cookbook by acclaimed author and caterer Shubhra Ramineni proves just how fun cooking with vegetables can be. It includes over 80 recipes showing you how to prepare vegetables and fruits the Indian way--with many easy-to-make vegan and gluten-free alternatives as well.
When Ramineni became a mother, one of her top priorities was to ensure that healthy and delicious home-cooked vegetarian meals would be a central part of her daughter's childhood experience. Her mother is a nutritionist and skilled Indian cook, so with her help, Ramineni set about transforming the seemingly bland vegetarian diet into the fantastic array of great-tasting meals and snacks in this vegetarian cookbook.
Indian cooks have a centuries-old tradition of crafting fresh vegetables into tempting meals, since India is the home of vegan and gluten-free eating. Ancient Indian Vedic practices have also resulted with India claiming the world's most extensive range of natural food flavorings--including many spices like turmeric, ginger, and cumin, which have proven health benefits.
With a few of these Indian spices in your pantry, along with this cookbook, you can effortlessly whip up flavorful dishes, like:
- Split Chickpea and Zucchini Stew
- Coconut Vegetable Curry with Tofu
- Tandoori Tofu Kebabs
- Vegetable Pilaf
- And over 75 more, with vegan and gluten-free modifications!
