Vegan Cooking - Recipes for a Peaceful World is an Australian vegan cookbook with over 170 delicious new recipes. From wholesome meals, fresh salads, tantalising desserts, cookies and did we mention cakes? Recipes include, Indian curries and dhals, Mediterranean and Asian inspired fare to delicious bakes and pasta dishes. Many new ingredients are explored with a mindfulness to their sustainability and health benefits.
All the recipes are vegan - meaning that they contain no animal products; no dairy, eggs, honey and no meat from any animal. A large range of our recipes are also gluten-free or have a gluten-free option. There are also a large range of cane sugar-free desserts, cakes, cookies and other treats. All of the recipes have been tried and tested using a range of readily available wholesome ingredients.
This book is called Vegan Cooking - Recipes for a Peaceful World - because, not only do these recipes not cause harm to any animals, they also help reduce our carbon footprint. The vegan diet is one of the lowest carbon diets around, far surpassing the traditional omnivorous meat eating diet and also lacto-ovo-vegetarian diets. Even if you are not a vegan and may never become one, by adding a few vegan meals to your weekly diet, you are helping to reduce the strain on the Earth's resources, and saving animals as well!
The book is A4 size and is printed in Australia on 100% recycled paper and board.
