About this book:

The book "101 Healthy Vegan Asian Foods" offers an amazing collection of delicious Asian vegan recipes for a healthy lifestyle. There are recipes from 10 different countries! After a successfully creating three previous best sellers, Jonathan Vine's fourth cookbook is mainly for those that are crazy about Asian food and want to maintain a healthy and harmonious vegan diet.

What I think of this book:

I love Asian foods and I am always looking for different recipes, especially ones that are healthy. The thing that I love about the 101 Healthy Vegan Asian Foods book is that they not only share recipes for main dishes, but you learn how to make different desserts, soups and of course appetizers. I've made a few of the recipes so far from the book and I love them! Here are a couple recipes that I love making:

  4. We have a Chinese & Asian restaurant not even 10 minutes from our house, as we love it. We also make recipes at home too. The banana fritters sounds good.

    1. It is a good book and to be honest, I like the fact that it's an ebook. It saves room on my shelf and I can take the book with me to the store to get any ingredients I may need.
