Madhur Jaffrey’s World Vegetarian

More Than 650 Meatless Recipes from Around the Globe

Overview

From the publisher

Madhur Jaffrey draws on more than four decades of culinary adventures, travels, and experimentation for a diverse collection that both intrigues and delights the palate. Dishes from five continents touch on virtually all of the world’s best-loved flavors, for a unsurpassed selection of vegetarian fare.

More than 650 recipes exemplify Jaffrey’s unsurpassed ability to create simple, flavorful home cooking that is well within the reach of every cook. Extensive sections on Beans, Vegetables, Grains, and Dairy explore the myriad ways these staples are enjoyed worldwide. Each section opens with a detailed introduction; Jaffrey describes methods for preparation and storage, as well as different cooking techniques and their cultural origins.

Throughout, she balances appealing, uncomplicated dishes such as sumptuous omelets and rich polentas with less familiar ingredients such as green mangoes, pigeon peas, and spelt. She also offers substantial sections on Soups, Salads, and Drinks, as well as Sauces and Other Flavorings, to help round out a meatless meal and add exciting new flavors to even the most easily prepared dishes.

Finally, a complete glossary of ingredients and techniques clarifies some of the little-known elements of the world’s cuisines so that even the uninitiated can bring the flavors of Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and more to their tables.
