vegan eats world is the perfect cookbook for those of us with itchy feet, taking our tastebuds all over the world with dishes from east to west and in between. you'll be tempted with the likes of everything from peruvian purple potato salad to jamaican plantain and pumpkin curry.
however when you do get your hands on this book, my recommendation is that you flip to page 316 and make the paella first. artichoke skillet paella with chorizo tempeh crumbles to be exact.
do not pass go. do not collect $200. just make the paella first. and whatever you do, don't skip making your own tempeh chorizo crumbles - not only is it incredibly easy, but smokey and spicy and so delicious. and the paella only calls for a 1/2 batch which is also perfect because if you're like me, you will definitely find yourself snacking on it as it simmers up in the pan..
two of my trusty favourites from the testing days remain the shanghai kale dumplings in sesame sauce (note: there is an entire chapter devoted to dumplings, breads & pancakes!!) and the tenacious tart tatin (aka the french caramelized apple tart).
once again terry has outdone herself and we are lucky little home kitchen chefs for it. do yourself a favour and get your hands on vegan eats world. cracked the spine already? i'd love to hear what your favourite dishes are!
now if you'll excuse me, i have some more bookmarking to do...
