LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS RECIPE BOOK!!!!!!! I'm so interested in the Buddhist philosophy that I couldn't wait to read this Buddhist inspired recipe book. The book indulges into all Asian inspired cuisine. Starting with recipes from China!!!! Recipes that include...~Buddhist vegetarian stew~Crispy tofu rolls that are OMG to die for!!!! Includes ingredients such as firm tofu,carrot and yuba skins.~Tofu & broccoli stir fry...one of my favs!!!!!~Sweet & spicy long beans with crushed up peanuts. A little bit of chinese long beans,peanuts,sea salt little oil and your good to go!Then the book goes to Japan. A country I have never took time to learn their food,but will now with recipes like..~Zen temple dumplings. Zen refers to a style of Buddhism.~Edamame hummus. I tried this recipe for myself one day and I can say it was SO DELICIOUS. Try adding some Sriracha sauce or a drop of lemon juice.Next,the author gives you multiple choices to choose from,from India. Curry is a staple food in India,if you don't like curry like me..skip this part of the book lol.Their butternut squash looks really good though!!!Last and not least is recipes from Vietnam. With delicious meals such as...~Sour soup with tofu..can you tell I like tofu???Haha The sweet and sour flavors in most of the recipes from Vietnam will activate your metabolism and not only help you feel fuller faster,but also help you lose weight too!!!! Their Bean sprout stir fry and Taro & tofu soup with peanuts AND their recipes including Quinoa(a tiny seed that holds a HUGE nutritional punch) are not only delicious,but good for you!!!!! I'm so happy I found this book,I would recomend to anyone and everyone!!!!!!! Really a great read!
I found this book both motivating and irritating.There were quite a few recipes that had me itching to get into the kitchen. They were explained clearly, the pictures were enticing and they seemed to be excellent additions to every table.But then there were an equal number of recipes which had ingredients I'd never heard of, with no explanations, and ingredients which were self-explanatory but which I doubt are easily accessible (or at all available) within a reasonable distance from my home.A cookbook which assumes that everyone knows what yuba skins, Shichimi Togarashi, Siracha sauce, burdock root, and konnyaku are and that tofu puffs, dried lily flowers, and Umeboshi are readily available to most people is a cookbook which, unlike Buddhism, is not for everyone. Personally, I had to overcome a bit of irritation to get on with enjoying all the good recipes offered.I'll happily be preparing a dozen or so of the Buddha's Belly's recipes and that may even be half of the recipes offered. Not at all shabby for a slim volume of recipes such as this one.I would've liked to have seen a bit more Buddhist philosophy as it relates to mindful eating since, after all, the Buddha's Belly and the path to enlightenment was the selling point.
One thing is certain - once you read through the book, you will develop a great appreciation to the amount of work going onin the kitchens of the Asian restaurants you frequent.What a fun cooking book this is. It has a lot going for it.1. An inspiring introduction to get you into the 'mood' and put these recipes in some historical context,2. Photos illustrating the prepared dishes,3. A brief note with each of the dishes depicting certain aspects or cook's take on it,4. Most dishes are fairly quick to prepare at around 30-45 min.What can be challenging to us westerners with this type of recipes (this is in general, not about the fine eBook itself)-- Asian dishes (Chinese, Indian, Vietnamese, Japanese) do have a lot of overheads - long and uncommon lists of ingredientsIt would have been nice to also have the calorie count per serving. Maybe in an updated edition(?)Going Vegetarian/Vegan or at least increasing those portions in your meals is a scientifically proven way(!) for a healthier you.Look up information in that regard on excellent sites like NutritionFacts.org for more on the subject. The Site is managed by A Dr whodoes NOT sell you anything, is not sponsored by any company and only wants to provide straightforward up to date Nutrition Info.eBook was provided for unbiased and complete evaluation and I am happy I have such a fine arsenal of Asian recipes available to us now.
I have to preface this by saying that I am not a vegan - I love meat. However, the recipes in this book sound delicious! I love the way that the recipes are explained in plain language, and I love the little comments that are in it. There are choices that everyone should enjoy and I highly recommend this book for people who are looking for new, healthy choices for meals and appetizers.
“Buddha’s Belly: Recipes For An Enlightened Mind” is a recipe book by Sally Primrose. Let’s cut to the chase. The recipes are tasty and none of them are over the top requiring superior cooking skills. The Chinese recipes were yummy and very typical of what you might find on the vegetarian menu in many better Chinese restaurants. The Japanese recipes were delicious. With summer approaching, I’m a huge fan of Japanese noodles and Sally has included two that I loved (Soba Noodle Salad and Sesame Soba Noodles). If you haven’t tried cold noodles when it’s hot out, you are missing out. On the Indian recipes, if you’re a fan of Indian food but not sure where to start, these recipes are easy to follow and taste good. While I tend to prefer Indian food when it’s colder out (it tends to fill me up), I did enjoy the Butternut Squash Korma and the Easy Lentil Curry really is easy. I’ve recently been enjoying Vietnamese food again and these recipes were tasty. I’m a huge soup fan and I loved the Sour Soup with Tofu and the Vegetarian Quang Noodle Soup. The concluding four salads were also good. On the Warm Green Bean Salad, if you aren’t a fan of “mock” meats, I think you’ll find that the soy chorizo will surprise you. Will the texture isn’t spot on, the spices really make it.Based on the title of the book, I expected to see more in terms of Buddhist philosophy, but not holding it against the author as the recipes were tasty, the instructions relatively simple and for lovers of Asian cuisine, a great recipe book to have on hand. And I will add, at least with the recipes I tried, none of the ingredients were hard to find.
