Simple vegan Japanese recipes to make at home
Believe it or not, Japanese cuisine in general is actually quite vegan-friendly, and many dishes can be made vegan with just a simple substitution or two.
You can enjoy the same big, bold, salty-sweet-spicy-rich-umami recipes of modern Japanese soul food without so much as glancing down the meat and dairy aisles. And best of all, it's super-easy to make!
In Vegan JapanEasy, Tim Anderson taps into Japan's rich culture of cookery that's already vegan or very nearly vegan, so there are no sad substitutes and zero shortcomings on taste. From classics like Vegetable Tempura, Onigiri, Mushroom Gyoza and Fried Tofu in Dashi, to clever vegan conversions including Cauliflower Katsu Curry, French Onion Ramen and Sichuan-Style Hot and Numbing Tofu with Ancient Grains, you don't need to be vegan to enjoy these tasty recipes. Add to that some outrageously good drinks and desserts, like the Watermelon Mojito and Soy Sauce Butterscotch Brownies, and you'll be spoilt for choice!
With ingredients like tangy miso, savoury shiitake mushrooms and zingy ponzu, to name a few, who needs meat? So if you're new to veganism, new to Japanese cooking, new to both, or you just want to expand your meat-free repertoire, this is the book for you!
The "Masterchef" winner and Japanese restaurant owner shares recipes drawn from the rewarding Japanese culinary traditions, made vegan by simple substitutions which don't compromise on taste. Includes such classics as Vegetable Tempura and Mushroom Gyoza, as well as clever vegan conversions such as Cauliflower Katsu Curry.
