Since purchasing the Asian Vegan Kitchen, it has become my cooking bible. Even if I cook dishes from more omnivorish recipes, I will often look in Hema's book to see if there is some basic broth, sauce or seasoning I can substitute to make the dish more healthy for my family.

This collection of recipes from across Asia features the spices and the many tasty ingredients that have made these cuisines popular worldwide. Mar 31, 2012 Yodamom rated it liked it. Shelves: cookbooks, vegan. This book covers all of the major Asian cuisines. Many of us know that Asian cooking use fish and meat by products (think oyster sauce). Parekh seems to take a recipe, remove the offending ingredients, like maybe fish sauce, and calls it quits.

Fantastic! This cookbook is well-organized, detailed, and has a great variety of recipes organized by country. So far, every single recipe I have tried has been absolutely delicious, especially the Indian ones, and I'm saying that not just with regards to them being vegan but just as recipes in general. Wonderful for anyone interested in Asian cooking! P.S. Don't worry too much if you don't have all the spices--although they are generally available at Asian/International markets, I've found that the recipes are easy to improvise on and if you are missing one ingredient it won't make that much of a difference!

We have taken to low-fat vegan meals for our health. However, I love spicey, flavorful food and found most vegan recipes rather plain. Restaurants tend to serve up oily vegan food so I wanted to find good recipes to make at home so I could limit the amount of added oils. The ingredients are wonderful and, once you have made the investment in some new spices, inexpensive. Hi fiber, tasty vegetables, fresh salads, great rice dishes, breads - I particularly enjoy the Indian and Thai recipes. The Japanese recipes are elegant and light fare. I plan to keep working on these as they seem sophisticated fare. I have made many of the dishes and have not been disappointed yet. Do find a way to grind your own spices as she suggests - it really does make a difference. The recipes are written up with just enough detail. She includes a glossary for the spices and ingredients that are new to most of us in the USA.

What can I say about this amazing book that others have not already written? I know I am biased. I am one of the lucky who not only have the book but can claim Hema (pronounced /Haymah/) as my own personal teacher. We started with vegan Japanese cuisine and steadily progressed to vegan Indian cuisine. When I read Hema's cookbook, I hear her voice in my ear. Sprinkling her wise and witty remarks throughout as she does the same with her garnishes. I know I am biased because of my personal exposure to her teachings, but it is not surprising to me that those who merely have the book are just as passionate about her dishes as I am. Since purchasing the Asian Vegan Kitchen, it has become my cooking bible. Even if I cook dishes from more omnivorish recipes, I will often look in Hema's book to see if there is some basic broth, sauce or seasoning I can substitute to make the dish more healthy for my family. Likewise, I will often add animal protein to some of her dishes to satisfy my family's meat cravings and in both situations, my dishes are the better. I would agree that some of the ingredients are "exotic", this is an Asian cookbook! ;) You can usually find a local Asian market to help you if you are really dedicated and of course, there is always Amazon.

Despite the exotic ingredients, Hema is able to communicate her recipes in a clear and straight forward manner so even the beginner cook will not be daunted. If you love cooking. If you want to make healthy, flavorful meals for your family or just yourself. If you feel like broadening your horizons beyond what they are. This book needs to be in your home.

5 star for content/recipes but the book itself is very flimsy so i removed a star. The recipes in here are great and offer the basics from each country.
Green, red, and massaman curry from Thailand along with a basic and a korma style curry from India give you a starting point for hundreds of different dishes. There are also other great recipes from around Asia to wet your appetites. A must for you collection if you want a few different ideas for dinners or snacks.

I really like this cookbook. I had been looking for good, authentic vegan Japanese food recipes, and the chapter on Japan didn't disappoint. I do not use castor sugar, however, I used organic cane sugar instead. I felt that most of the other cuisines requires lot of spices that I don't have. It'll be an interesting trip to the international food store.
The copy I purchased, was to replace the one that my cat damaged, but I'll likely be purchasing another copy soon.

There isn't much to say about this other than buy it because you'll actually use it. Mostly has easy to make options, good flavors, modern. I recommend this book, Martha Stewarts vegetarian book, and one dish vegan cookbook for new cooks / new vegetarians.

Everything I have made from this book has been delicious! But let's be honest. There are a lot of obscure ingredients that require numerous trips to different grocery stores. Ever heard of a salam or pandan leaf? What about fruit salt? Me neither but that's okay because I'm willing to track them down. Even though the ingredients can be a bit of a challenge, the recipes are completely worth the effort.
I have made some very delicious recipes that even my meat eating partner loves. The miso soup is better than any restaurant.
