Thai cooking is renowned for its perfect balance of flavours and textures and for its imaginative presentation. And the more people there are to share it, the better: for the Thais, the sharing of food is a source of great joy. Over the centuries migration has brought many influences from abroad, especially from China and (in the south) the spicier traditions from India. Chillies may have been introduced by Portuguese traders in the sixteenth century. Although veganism is virtually unheard of in Thailand, there is no need for vegans to miss out. Many of the ingredients are already familiar to vegan cooks, and the more specialist ingredients are becoming increasingly easy to get hold of. There is more good news too: many of the dishes are very quick and easy to prepare. Linda Majzlik has created over 120 dishes in her own kitchen, using authentic Thai ingredients and flavours, but avoiding the use of animal ingredients. Try her Beansprout and Lettuce Soup, the Tofu and Tamarind Dip, a bowl of Carrot, Ginger and Sesame Fried Rice, some Curried Aubergine with Tofu, a plate of Broccoli with Peanut and Chilli Sauce, a Pineapple and Water Chestnut Salad, all accompanied with Pan-fried Bread, some Crispy Fried Garlic, Onion and Shallots, and finish the meal off with a Pumpkin and Coconut Pudding.
Starting a vegan diet can be a rather daunting thing since you're often faced with a lot of people discouraging you from doing so. Vegan diets are often considered dull, boring or downright yucky by people who're more used to eating meat. However, you don't have to pick around your salad and feel glum any more.
Do you want to learn how to transition to a raw plant-based diet? I believe everyone would consume more fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and herbs if they experienced how wonderful raw food can taste when prepared right and the amount of energy it would give them! Within are directions and recipes to make raw vegan bread, brownies, burgers, cake, chocolate, cobbler, cookies, pasta, and pizza! Contains over 60 plant-based creations! I dedicated two chapters of recipes based on the medicinal mushroom chaga and chocolate because of the numerous health benefits these two superfoods provide, which are listed. This one is for you if you want scrumptious healthy recipes, or want to learn how to transition to a raw plant-based diet. Every creation is not only nourishing for your body but all are incredibly delicious! I enjoy making all of them on a regular basis and I'm confident you will too!
