Modern, vibrant, easy-to-make food. East is a must-have whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, or simply want to eat more delicious meat-free food.
Drawing from her ‘New Vegan’ Guardian column, Meera Sodha’s collection features brand-new recipes inspired by Asian cuisine – from India to Indonesia, Singapore to Japan, by way of China, Thailand, and Vietnam.
With 120 practical and mouth-watering recipes, learn how to make:
– ROASTED PANEER ALOO GOBI for a quick Monday-night dinner
– CARAMELIZED ONION AND CHILLI RAMEN straight from the store-cupboard
– THE SODAH FAMILY MASALA OMELETTE to serve up a home-made brunch
– SALTED MISO BROWNIES as a sweet treat
There are seasonal specialities, warming noodles and curries, tofu and rice dishes as well as salads, sides and sweets – all practical and surprisingly easy to make – and bursting with exciting flavours.
‘Meera can take a packet of noodles, some peanut butter and a hunk of tofu and work magic. East is the vegetable book for people who aren’t vegetarian. A joy – I want to cook every dish’ DIANA HENRY
‘Fabulous’ NIGELLA LAWSON
‘She has a seemingly magic ability to tell you exactly the detail you need to make a dish sing. This book is a godsend’ BEE WILSON, SUNDAY TIMES
What is it about the word ‘entertaining’ that sends people into a state of panic? In Nothing Fancy, New York Times food columnist Alison Roman shows you instead how to ‘have people over’, with her signature laid-back, approachable style and visually stunning recipes.
Featuring more than 150 all-new recipes, Nothing Fancy includes time-saving tips, like using store-bought ingredients where homemade is unnecessary, batch-made punches for an easy cocktail, and ideas for putting your friends to work! These recipes – heavy on the easy-to-execute vegetables and versatile grains, paying lots of close attention to crunchy, salty snacks, and with love for all the meats – are for gatherings big and small, from the weeknight to the weekend. Alison Roman will give you the food your people want (think DIY martini bar, platters of tomatoes, pots of coconut-braised chicken and chickpeas, pans of lemony turmeric tea cake…)
Hosting doesn’t have to be a week-long freak-out. With Alison’s strategic menus, you can shop, cook and eat all in the same day. So text your friends because you’re having them over – tonight!
