ABOUT THE BOOK
Hip, healthy, and flavorful, Tahini & Turmeric delivers vegan haute cuisine in 101 easy-to-prepare recipes
With gorgeous full-color photos, artful writing, and out-of-the-box recipes, you'll see why this duo's successful and heart-healthy website, MayIHaveThatRecipe.com, has such a dedicated following.
Drawing on the ancient traditions of Turkey, Lebanon, and Israel to the trendy palates of Barcelona, Spain, Cohen and Fox showcase delicious vegan dishes with sophisticated flavor profiles and beautiful, crowd-pleasing presentations. From brunch specials such as Chickpea and Pepper Shakshuka and Zucchini Fritters with Yogurt Cucumber Sauce, to rich, intensely-flavored desserts, like Creamy Tahini Cheesecake and Rose Water Pudding Tartelettes with Pomegranate and Pistachios, there's a dish for every meal. Paired with fresh greens, the salads and appetizers can more than hold their own for an easy weeknight supper that is healthy, filling, and beautiful. Entrées such as Harissa meatless meatballs with Aromatic Turmeric Broth and Sweet and Savory Quinoa Stuffed Eggplant do double duty for everyday or holiday.
With detailed explanations of Middle Eastern foods, and suggestions on the best way to build up a home pantry of staples, you'll discover a world of flavor. Once you begin cooking from Tahini & Turmeric, you'll find yourself experimenting with pistachios and pomegranate syrup--and, of course, tahini and turmeric.
