Hey guys,

Does anyone have The Ayurvedic Vegan Kitchen by Talya Lutzker?
http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/Ayurved ... 1570672866

Just put a hold on it in my library and wondering how the recipes are...

Despite not being completely vegan, I am loving Tastes of Ayurveda by Amrita Sondhi. I want to make so many of the recipes!

Thanks!

Have you had a chance to try any recipes from your library copy of this book, saveur? Like you, I also have Tastes of Ayurveda and love it. It may be my very favorite book on the subject. I am curious how The Ayurvedic Vegan Kitchen compares.

Yes! I love this cookbook!

Winter Vegetable Stew - Added adzuki beans. I liked the combination of ginger, miso and dill. The broccoli is probably not needed but I liked the little florets in there. I omitted the green curry paste.

Mung Bean Stew - Simple but good. I omitted the potatoes and subbed collards for kale.

Better Than Chicken Soup - Very good. I added chickpeas. :)

Cinnamon Cabbage and Apples - My only flop so far.. It was a bit too weird for me, but still good. I just wouldn't repeat it.

Some of the recipes call for different sea veggies that I don't have (astralagus and raw nori which I haven't been using). I have a feeling raw nori is different then the strips I have because it calls for 1/4 cup.

What have you enjoyed from Tastes of Ayurveda?

Made the dal and it was simple. Without oil it was more mild than I usually eat but I liked the bok choy in it. Did not add the sea veggies or lecithin.

I just bought The Ayurvedic Vegan Kitchen cookbook last week. It looks very interesting. So far, I've made the Gingersnap cookie and they are just too delicious !!! With the Gingersnap cookie, I also made the cherry pie that needed the Gingersnap cookie for the crust. Everything was delicious. The only thing, they're was a mistake with the ingredients and quantities for the crust. I've advice the author, and she was really glad to know it to make the change for futur books to go out there.

I would be really interested to do something "savory" for a meal :)

Have a nice day :)

I am giving away a copy of this cookbook on my blog. Check it out!

I loved the herbed millet (subbed it with quinoa) and the baked onions. The recipe and giveaway are here: http://tastespace.wordpress.com/2013/10 ... -giveaway/
