Fire, Smoke, Green Vegetarian barbecue, smoking and grilling recipes

Fire, Smoke, Green Vegetarian barbecue, smoking and grilling recipes

Author: Martin Nordin Format: Hardback Release Date: 16/04/2020

In Martin Nordin's second book, he brings us a host of mouthwatering, modern vegetarian recipes, using the most elemental and ancient method of cooking: fire. Not just a barbecue cookbook, Fire, Smoke, Green is broken up into seven chapters that cover everything you need to know about making great food over the flame: from grilling directly onto fire, to cooking with indirect fire, smoked recipes and even wood-fired pizza. Atmospheric photography and charming illustrations throughout bring you something other than your average vegetarian cookbook - as lovers of Martin's first book Green Burgers will attest, his approach to meat-free cooking is anything but boring. Try the Roasted and smoked potatoes with beer-caramelised onions; the Fennel roots with shiitake, green onion, buckwheat and herb oil; or Harissa-marinated sweet potato with grilled cabbage leaves and black dukkah. Or if you still can't get enough of the burger recipes, why not try the Courgette and mungbean burgers with sriracha mayonnaise and furikake, washed down with a smoky mezcal with grilled grapefruit.

Vegetarian Times Plant-Powered Protein Cookbook Over 200 Healthy & Delicious Whole-Food Dishes

Vegetarian Times Plant-Powered Protein Cookbook Over 200 Healthy & Delicious Whole-Food Dishes

Author: Editors of Vegetarian Times Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/04/2020

Healthy, Delicious Recipes with Plant Powered Protein Protein is the macronutrient that's on the tip of everyone's tongue these days, but a protein-rich diet doesn't have to mean chowing down on giant bowls of beans or plates of egg whites-nor does it have to include meat, fish, or poultry. In this book, the Vegetarian Times editors set the protein story straight, showing you how to meet all your protein needs with delicious, satisfying, easy-to-prepare recipes that fit seamlessly into any lifestyle.

Storecupboard Vegan

Storecupboard Vegan

Author: Laura Veganpower, Sebastien Kardinal Format: Hardback Release Date: 31/03/2020

Here are 300 easy, fast and inexpensive recipes that use ready-made vegan preparations, such as tofu sausages, smoked tofu, seitan, tempeh, soy steaks, vegan cheeses, and dairy-free yogurt as well as regular storecupboard staples like tins of chick peas or beans, lentils, pasta, rice, quinoa, couscous, gnocchi, miso and frozen vegetables. The authors of the highly acclaimed and widely reviewed Aquafaba, are back, and this time, it is the time-poor urban dweller who will benefit from their culinary creativity. This book is designed for `urban vegans'. Why? Because there are noticeable differences in access to food according to where we live. In big cities like London, Paris or New York, you can find every possible vegan ingredient, and endless products imported from exotic countries. On the other hand, since there is rarely local production, it can often be very hard to find top-quality super-fresh fruits and vegetables. You may be surprised to find that almost all the vegetables and herbs used in this book are frozen. The first obvious advantage to using frozen is it's time saving! No cleaning, no peeling, no cutting - and available in small quantities, without waste. The second advantage is having on hand the basics for an instant meal. So the aim of this book is to provide recipes for real cooking every day using mainly products that are easily found in local neighbourhood shops and supermarkets. The idea is to use what you have on hand, stored in your kitchen cupboards or at the bottom of the fridge. You are always ready to go!
