Welcome to the bold new world of The Global Vegetarian, a culinary celebration of tantalizing, creative, and healthful meatless meals. Offering vibrant, flavorful flare for every season and occasion, this collection of recipes is inventive, globally inspired, and at the vanguard of vegetarian cooking.
Each chapter is filled with nourishing and alluring recipes, from morning fare, soups, stews, and appetizers to entrees, side dishes, and desserts that feature an eclectic cornucopia of vegetables and fruits, wholesome grains and pastas, hearty beans and lentils, garden fresh herbs, sprightly chilies, and assertive spices. Included are such savory offerings as:
- Hummus with Roasted Red Chilies
- Criolla Stew with Spicy Corn Dumplings
- Jamaican Jerk Tempeh
- Rosemary Roasted Sweet Peppers
- Acorn Squash with Sun-Dried Tomato Cousscous
- West African Jollof Rice
- Capellini with Arrabiata Sauce
- Black Bean-Jalapeno Succotash
- Chayote Carrot Bread
Whether you are a confirmed vegetarian or are simply striving to add more excitement, flavor, and nutrition to your table, The Global Vegetarian is your guide to savoring the joys of the new meatless cuisine.
Solomon, a food writer and chef, gathers inventive meatless recipes from around the world. Such traditional dishes as hearty vegetable soups are joined by variations like Jamaican Jerk Tempeh, which replaces chicken with ``wheat meat,'' and Brazilian Feijoada, a black bean stew in which the smoky chipotle pepper substitutes for meat. Chapters are organized mainly by course and feature ingredients which are frequently bypassed, like the beets and parsnips that are honored in New World Borscht, or given unexpected starring roles, as Chocolate Mocha Tofu Cheesecake and the non-dairy Mango Egg Nog. African entries, e.g., West African Jollof Rice, which combines kale, pigeon peas and ginger in a festive party dish, supply innovative fare for American tables. Although a recipe for Buttermilk Mashed Basil Potatoes recommends use of a food processor without any caveats about overprocessing (which can lead to gluey potatoes), experienced cooks will likely find some inspiration here.
