Ever-Green Vietnamese: Super-Fresh Recipes, Starring Plants from Land and Sea
Plant-based cooking meets the dynamic flavors of Vietnamese cuisine in these 125+ recipes and variations from the James Beard Award-winning author of Vietnamese Food Every Day.
Although many people think of Vietnamese cooking as beefy pho and meat-filled sandwiches, traditional Vietnamese cooking has always involved a lot of plants and seafood and a little meat. In Ever-Green Vietnamese, Andrea Nguyen details how cooks in her home country draw on their natural resourcefulness and Buddhist traditionsÿto showcase a wide array of herbs and vegetables in flavorful, comforting recipes.
Filled with the brilliant advice and exceptional teaching Nguyen is known for, the book offers recipes for flavor-boosting condiments and sauces (her incredible DIY vegan fish sauce), exciting ways to enjoy tofu, and dozens of vegetable-driven sides and mains, including a few that incorporate a bit of meat (many with vegetarian or vegan options).
