Colorful, aromatic, and flavorful—and as simple as ordering in.
The harmonious blending of color, aroma, and flavor has made Chinese cuisine one of the most popular on the planet.

From tasty appetizers to mouthwatering desserts, The Chinese Vegan Kitchen is a collection of easy yet authentic recipes from the various culinary regions of China—Canton, Hunan, Peking, Shanghai, Sichuan, Taiwan, Tibet—that you can prepare in your own kitchen with ingredients readily available in western supermarkets. This book features:

• Nutritional analysis of calories, protein, total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrate, and dietary fiber for every recipe
• Cooks’ tips throughout
• A glossary of ingredients and where to find them
This is vegan cooking like you’ve never experienced it—but you will be coming back to this irresistible collection time and again.
"Vegan cuisine eschews the use of all animal products, which form the basis of a great deal of Italian cooking. Klein, author of The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen and The PDQ Vegetarian Cookbook, nevertheless finds plenty of recipes for this inventive compendium. Sicilian-Style Roasted Stuffed Tomatoes, for example, are filled with bread crumbs, capers, and garlic, designed to be satisfying enough that one won't miss the ground veal they might otherwise be filled with. Same goes for the Zucchini Stuffed With Olives And Tomatoes, which smacks of briny olives and savory spices. The Fettucine with Basil-Pea Cream substitutes pea puree for the dairy of al Fredo. These recipes might be a bit untraditional, but they make up for it in healthfulness, as the nutritional information at the end of each recipe proves."
