Fast, fresh, plant-based dishes from Asian chef Ching-He Huang, offering her modern take on recipes that are traditionally meat and dairy-free.
Asian food has always included a variety of meat and dairy-free recipes. Focusing entirely on these plant-based dishes, Ching draws inspiration from across Asia to create simple, everyday, healthy home cooking that features protein-rich ingredients such as tofu, seitan, pulses, beans, and grains.
The inspiration behind the book is Ching's husband, Jamie. From birth, he suffered from asthma and eczema but three and a half years ago, three months after adopting a vegan diet, he was cured.
Ching has always believed in the age-old Chinese maxim that "food is medicine", and having experienced first-hand the transformation of her husband's health, she firmly believes in the healing power of plants to reduce inflammation, to restore, nourish and replenish.
This book is full of inspiring, quick and simple recipes, perfect for vegetarians, vegans and people looking to reduce the amount of meat in their diets.
