Read East

Read East: 120 Vegan and Vegetarian recipes from Bangalore to Beijing

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 stunning new collection also features plenty of brand-new recipes inspired by a wide range of Asian cuisines. There are warming noodles, curries, rice dishes, tofu, salads, sides and sweets, all surprisingly easy to make and bursting with exciting flavours. Taking you from India to Indonesia, Singapore to Japan, by way of China, Thailand, and Vietnam, East will show you how to whip up a sprout nasi goreng and a swede laksa; how to make Kimchi pancakes, delicious dairy free black dal, and chilli tofu. There are sweet potato momos for snacks and unexpected desserts like stem ginger chocolate truffles and matcha roll cake.

Only flagged ten recipes to try, too many recipes called for ingredients that are hard to get, and not that many sounded like both I and my husband would like them.

I liked the cover art and illustrations throughout. Beautiful photo staging.

Author lives in London, and is of Indian heritage. Interestingly, she wrote in the intro that she had a toddler and couldn’t travel for inspiration like she’d done for her previous books, so she asked around people she knew for ideas and favorites, and visited restaurants around London.

Read The Forest Feast Mediterranean

Filled with atmospheric images of coastal villages, charming watercolor illustrations, and mouthwatering food photography, The Forest Feast Mediterranean is an irresistible escape from the everyday, no matter where you might live.

Lemons and sprigs of dill and votive candles in glass decorate a dinner table in a strip down the center between the plates
Lemons as centerpiece – probably cheaper than flowers and you can eat them or give them as party favors 😉

Very much a vibes cookbook, with a good number of simple vegetarian recipes inspired by the Mediterranean lifestyle and flavor palate. Complexity ranged from a crudite platter to homemade pasta. Very colorful and dynamic, each page different, with a blend of photos and paintings. The recipes are brief and casual, reading like a friend’s told you what to do.

The author created recipes, painted illustrations, took photos, and designed the book! That’s a lot of skills at work, and creative control, for a decisively bold look and relaxed feel.

It’s as much inspirational and aspirational as it is useful; it brings you the flavor of the Med in taste and imagery. Many of the recipes are photographed on location, meaning she developed the recipe while traveling! 👏

Menemen and Turkish Breakfast

Watched POV Menemen (Turkish Eggs with Peppers and Tomato) by J. Kenji López-Alt from youtu.be

Menemen is a Turkish dish that should be more famous than it is. It’s one of my favorite breakfast (or lunch, or dinner, or whenever) dishes ever. Tomatoes, peppers, good olive oil, eggs, and a little magic. Your mouth won’t know what hit it.

Or maybe it will know exactly what hit it: Tomatoes, peppers, good olive oil, eggs, and a little magic.

You can get a written recipe (that I never actually follow) here on Serious Eats: https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2014/09/menemen-turkish-style-scrambled-eggs-tomatoes-chilies-recipe.html

This looks pretty easy to make, and tasty! Summer dish when you can get good tomatoes. Never tried grating tomatoes like that, seems easy enough.

We went to Turkey and never had this, but the traditional Turkish “spread” with hard-boiled eggs, bread, cheese, cucumber, olives, tomatoes, and tea. We liked it so well for years I’d re-create a version for us in the summer. I’ll still have tomatoes with breakfast if I’ve got them around and we’re having eggs.
