A Vegan Taste of East Africa by Linda Majzlik
9781897766972, paperback. A vast region of climactic and geographic extremes, East Africa is often characterized as a wasteland of the tastebuds, where harsh conditions lead to basic, flavorless food. This vegan cookbook dispells that myth, showcasing East Africa's hearty, healthy, and delectable ingredients--from sweet potatoes and cassava to sorghum, spices, and savory curries. Italian, Indian, and Portuguese influences combine with native African traditions and tastes to create a truly unique regional flavor. The cookbook's adventurous recipes sample the best animal-free ingredients of the region to create easy-to-make and easy-to-enjoy vegan meals.
