From the bestselling co-author of "Veganomicon and Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World", this is the first cookbook for fresh, flavourful, Latin vegan cuisine. As co-author of the phenomenally successful cookbooks "Veganomicon and Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World", Terry Hope Romero has long been one of most popular vegan chefs and voices in the community. Now, in her first solo cookbook, Romero opens the world of Latin flavour to vegans and foodies alike. "Viva Vegan!" expands the palates of anyone looking for a new way to add fresh, seasonal ingredients and authentic Latino spice to their meals without relying on animal products. A proud Venezuelan-American, Romero's exuberance and love for her culture and all Latin American traditions shine through every recipe. "Viva Vegan!" covers every aspect of Latin cooking across the Americas: refreshing bebidos (drinks), salsas, vibrant ensaladas, hearty empanadas (hand-held meals in of themselves), tamales galore, postres (desserts), nourishing stews and soups, and one-dish wonder meals bursting with beans and grains. You can learn the basics of Latin cooking, like how to make beans from scratch, the perfect tamale, essential appetizers like Tostones with Palm Heart & Avocado Ceviche and salsa both piquant or mellow to complement any dish, plus special treats like Cafe con Leche Flan, Bread Pudin with Guava & Fresh Mango, Churros con Hot Chocolate, and much more. Complete with gorgeous colour photos, "Viva Vegan!" is the ultimate guide to authentic and inspired new Latin cuisine.
