Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
A vibrant tour of Asia in 90 vegan recipes
When Sasha Gill went vegan, she wasn’t about to leave her family’s home-cooked favorites behind. Pad thai without fish sauce? Curry without ghee? In East Meets Vegan, Sasha proves that Asian cooking can be plant-based—as well as easy, affordable, and delicious! Here are:
- Veganized favorites: Spring rolls, red bean pancakes, shiitake ramen, mango lassis
- Can’t-believe-it’s-vegan twists: Tandoori cauliflower “wings,” pineapple fried rice, jackfruit biryani, “butter chicken,” a sushi feast to feed a crowd
- Mix-and-match pairings: Combine leftovers for your own take on Asian fusion.
