Product Description

Synopsis

Japanese and vegetarian food expert Miyokko Mishimoto Schinner presents traditional Japanese dishes and regional specialities from Kyushu in the south to Hokkaido in the north. She draws from the tradition of vegetarian cooking in Buddhist temples, as well as the vegetable-based dishes found in traditional Japanese cuisine. For dishes usually prepared with meat, fish or fowl, Miyoko has created innovative substitutes utilizing vegetarian foods like tofu and seitan, to create recipes suitable for vegans.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best! 12 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although not vegan (I eat some fish, dairy products and eggs though never meat) I found this book marvellous.

You will probably need a well-stocked health store or supermarket to get some of the ingredients, but if you have an Asian/Chinese supermarket then you'll find all the ingredients easily and pretty cheap too. Once you've got the basic ingredients (most of which last for year or more) the rest is just buying in-season veggies, etc.

Most of the recipes are simple to prepare, which is a boon compared to some other Japanese cook-books where you can spend 5 hours in a kitchen preparing the ingredients and cooking!

I'd like to see an update of this book - there are so many other meat-like substitutes available commonly these days which easily can replace some of the ingredients.

It's a brilliant introduction to Japanese cooking, showing how it need not be too fussy to prepare and cook. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes Japanese food, even meat eaters.

Oh, and you'll lose weight eating this sort of stuff regularly and generally feel healthier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow tasty recipes 5 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Even though I'm not a vegan I enjoy trying out new vegan recipes. The four recipes I have made so far from this book were incredibly easy to make and really tasty. Particularly the tofu wrapped nori - meat eater friends really liked this one too. Really impressed, plus the author gives you some background information on her growing up in Japan and on Japanese cuisine all of which is really interesting. I definitely would recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Taste Of Japan 16 July 2002
Format:Paperback
This is a great book, because it's more than just recipies. The author goes through great lengths to explain potentially new ingredients and cooking techniques, as well as, traditional and non-traditional recipies made vegan. She also, explains how veganism is looked upon in Japan.
Good recipies end up being an added bonus.

5.0 out of 5 stars refined 3 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Even though it might not be easy to find all the ingredients, I love this book. And in the beginning the author gives a very comprehensive explanation of all these tricky ingredients and their possible substitutes.
The recipes are simple though refined, definitely for people who enjoy their food.
