Jackie Kearney, MasterChef UK finalist in 2011, explores the nutritional benefits of Asian street food with 85 healthy vegan recipes. Jackie Kearney has brought new life to healthy, plant-based cooking in this exciting follow-up to her award-winning Vegan Street Food. The book is inspired by the growing wellness culture in Asia as well as the glorious range of street food – from street hawkers, roadside cafes, food halls and more – which brings people from all walks of life together.
Jackie takes us on a delicious journey from India to Indonesia, via Sri Lanka, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Malaysia, enjoying classic dishes and crowd-pleasers we might already be familiar with, such as ‘Massaman Curry in a Hurry’, ‘Faster Laksa’ and ‘Paradise Bounty Bars’, all made a little healthier. The book also features many less well known regional specialities, such as ‘Banh Trang Nuong’ (Vietnamese rice paper pizza), ‘Pepes Tahu’ (Javanese tofu in banana leaves) and ‘Khao Sen’ (Thai tomato-braised rice noodles with porcini mushrooms). Combined with stories and anecdotes from the road, family photos and fascinating local information that transport the reader to the places and foods they fell in love with, this exciting book celebrates the best of vegan street food, whilst harnessing the most nutritious produce and ingredients.
