Venturesome Vegan Cooking: Bold Flavors for Plant-Based Meals, by J.M. Hirsch, Michelle Hirsch and Larry Crowe (Photographer), is free in the Kindle store, courtesy of publisher Agate Surrey.
Venturesome Vegan Cooking breaks the vegan mold, focusing on great flavor and innovative recipes from around the globe. The more than 100 recipes have a strong international pedigree, including recipes drawn from the authors’ travels in Europe and Africa. The book features manageable, easy-to-make recipes written in a clear, straightforward style. It introduces readers to unusual ingredients slowly, incorporating them into otherwise familiar dishes, resulting in bold, fresh flavors with a comfortable dash of tradition.
Some of the recipes guaranteed to delight the palate are: Fresh Spring Rolls, Spicy Creamy Hummus, Spicy Asian Noodle Salad, Hearty Autumn Squash and Bean Stew, Memere’s Shepherd’s Pie, Sweet Apricot Potatoes with Pine Nuts, Pasta Spirals with Creamy Potato and Artichoke Sauce, Peppery Pumpkin Risotto, Succulent Strawberry and Vinegar Sauce, Chocolate Fudge Pie, Sticky Cinnamon Nut Rolls, Spare the Pigs Hash, and scores of others.
Venturesome Vegan means bold, fresh flavors; healthful recipes that challenge and excite the palate but are designed for the typical home cook (with typical home cook skills); and great vegan cooking for both vegan beginners and those looking to break out of their usual rut.
