Japan: The World Vegetarian
Publisher: Bloomsbury Absolute
One of the first books in a brand-new series, Reiko Hashimoto introduces the incredibly varied world of vegetarian Japanese food.
Vegetarianism has long been a feature of the Japanese diet, and in this book Reiko walks us through the history of vegetarianism in the country, as well as providing tips on the key ingredients – such as miso, tofu and seaweed – that are most used in Japanese vegetarian cooking to help you create a mouth-watering Japanese vegetarian feast at home.
Alongside this, Reiko offers 70 delectable recipes including traditional sushi and noodle dishes, such as gyoza dumplings, fried tofu yakitori, nigiri zushi, tempura, tofu katsu curry and aubergine and padron pepper with somen noodles. All recipes are accompanied by stunning photography.
