_________________________ A culinary classic, and one of the all-time great vegetarian cookbooks from a true master of the kitchen. For this book, Madhur Jaffrey, known for her work on Indian cuisine, has gathered together vegetarian recipes from Turkey, Japan, China, India, Korea and the Philippines among others, to create a display of flavours, textures and colours. It includes suggestions for menus and a section of general information.
The vegetarian cuisine of the Middle East and North Africa is a treasure chest of pungent herbs and spices, aromatic stews and soups, chewy falafels and breads, couscous, stuffed grape leaves, greens and vegetables, hummus, pizzas, pies, omelets, pastries and sweets, smooth yogurt drinks, and strong coffees. Originally the food of peasants too poor for meat, vegetarian cooking in the Middle East developed over thousands of years into a culinary art form influenced both by trade and invasion. It is as rich and varied in its history as it is in flavor—culinary historians estimate the Arab kitchen has over 40,000 dishes! Now noted food writer Habeeb Salloum has culled 330 savory jewels from this never-ending storehouse to create Classic Vegetarian Cooking from the Middle East—a rich, healthful, and economical introduction to flavors and aromas that have stood the test of time.

Vegetarian Recipes from Peckham, Persia and beyond

Publisher: Pavilion Books
The part-time vegetarian who was identified in Sally’s first book, Veggiestan, has become a thing. Great swathes of the population are now eschewing meat for the best part of the week in favour of healthier, vegetable–based alternatives. The appetite for new ways to brighten your broccoli, add sparkle to your spinach and titillate your tomatillos has never been greater. Since opening her vegetarian café within her shop Persepolis, Sally has seen an explosion of interest in her Middle Eastern-influenced vegetarian dishes. Inspired by the food Sally serves up daily to her hungry customers, this sequel to Veggiestan, ventures a little further from the Middle Eastern shores, deserts and mountain ranges to other continents and beyond... The book still mostly draws on Sally’s experience in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine, but once again she looks to all parts of the globe for vegetarian recipes (and stories). Persepolis brings you the most outstanding (and fun) ways of feeding without meat or fish, stopping along the way for a chat with the residents and a bit of sightseeing. 150 new recipes, including more vegan recipes/alternatives, offer a fantastic variety of ideas for the vegetarian cook.
A collection of vegetarian dishes influenced by Middle Eastern flavors from Salma Hage, author of the bestselling classic, The Lebanese Kitchen, also published by Phaidon. A definitive, fresh and approachable collection of 150 traditional recipes from an authoritative voice on Middle Eastern home cooking, Salma Hage’s new book is in line with the current Western trends of consciously reducing meat, and the ancient Middle Eastern culture of largely vegetarian, mezze style dining. Traditionally, the Middle Eastern diet consisted largely of vegetables, fruits, herbs, spices, pulses, grains and legumes. Salma simplifies this fast becoming popular cuisine with easily achievable recipes, many with vegan and gluten-free options. Drawing inspiration from ancient and prized Phoenician ingredients, from grassy olive oil to fresh figs and rich dates, this book offers an array of delicious breakfasts and drinks, mezze and salads, vegetables and pulses, grains and desserts. Salma shows how to easily make the most of familiar everyday fruits and legumes, as well as more exotic ingredients now widely available outside of the Middle East, with nourishing recipes so flavourful and satisfying they are suitable for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
