Silk Road Vegetarian

Tuttle Publishing

Discover the secrets of healthy and sustainable eating that have been practiced along the Spice Routes of Asia for centuries. This unusual book is filled with richly-flavored vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free recipes like Bengali Potato and Zucchini Curry, Afghan Moussaka Eggplant with Yoghurt Sauce and Bukharian Crock Pot Rice with Dried Fruit―which are perfect for today's localvore vegetarian.

Dishes from the Silk Road have their roots in the ancient village food traditions of Asia, where a few healthy ingredients from local gardens were blended with spices to create rice-based meals that are nutritious, varied and flavorful, as well as being ethical and sustainable.

Silk Road Vegetarian delves into the cultural and spiritual traditions of the Silk Road to show how cultural traditions have influenced the cuisine. Each dish has a rich history―linking past to present in a particular place. At the same time, the recipes address pressing contemporary needs by showing us how to eat a healthy, balanced and yet varied diet with locally-sourced, earth-friendly ingredients.
