A Splash of Soy: Everyday Food from Asia
Named after the simplicity and usefulness of soy, Lara Lee's new cookbook introduces 80 game-changing recipes that close the gap between classic Asian dishes and quick-to-table family meals. Some recipes only require a little chopping and a boiled kettle, as well as 15, 30, and 45 minute meals fit for weeknight dinners or no-fuss dinner parties.
Lara explores the vibrant array of sweet, salty, umami, sour and spicy Asian flavors, with inventive brunch ideas like:
- Tom Yum Bloody Mary
- Zesty sides like Sambal Patatas Bravas
- Simple noodles like Cheesy Kimchi Linguine with Gochujang Butter
- And many more punchy curries, stir-fries and rice recipes from glazed meat to fragrant veggies.
She also includes pantry swaps and vegan substitutes so these fuss-free recipes can adapt to your own busy kitchen.
With tales of heritage and culture woven into every recipe, A Splash of Soy transports readers to different parts of Asia, sprinkled with the Australian influence of Lara's upbringing. It is a book for foodies and beginner home cooks everywhere, showing you can make a memorable, delicious meal with steps as simple as adding just a splash of soy.
