Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Library Journal, 6/25/10
“The vegan's answer to Rachael Ray and Mr. Food, this is recommended for anyone wishing to re-create their favorite Asian restaurant dishes without the meat.”

Vegans will find it is an excellent addition to their cookbook libraries.”
 
VegCooking Chef Spotlight
“Mark Reinfeld is poised at the leading edge of contemporary vegan cooking.”

The Hungry Vegan blog, 7/9/10
“Like accelerated culinary nirvana…Whether you want to impress your friends and family with your cooking prowess or you just enjoy eating great Asian cuisine, get yourself a copy of The 30 Minute Vegan's Taste of the East. It will inspire and delight you and awaken the creative culinary genius within you.”

PortlandOregonian, 7/13/10
“There's a…’keep it simple’ approach to Taste of the East. Murray and Reinfeld must have been thinking weeknight suppers with the 150 recipes they've assembled, which includes hearty noodle and rice bowls, Indian stews, Chinese stir fries and Southeast Asian fusion”
 

The Hippo, 7/15/10
“Aside from its veganness, Taste of the East also offers a nice little primer on the differences between the cuisines of Japan, China, Thailand and India…Vegan or not, if you’re looking to expand into Asian cooking, Taste of the East can offer a good guide.”
 
Basil & Spice, 7/18/10
“An excellent cookbook for cooking Asian food in less than 30 minutes…The acquisition would be perfect for dieters everywhere.”
 

Leslie Loves Veggies Blog, 7/25/10
“Complete with at-a-glance cooking charts, key Asian pantry ingredients, all-new preparation techniques, and unique cooking tips, Taste of the East is a must-have addition to your cookbook shelf.”

Chicago Vegan Restaurant Examiner, 8/19/10
“The recipes pop with bright flavors, like their Panang Curry and Tofu Tikka Masala and luscious textures, like the silky Mango Custard Pudding and Coconut Spinach Rice. Not only do the recipes emphasize fresh, healthy preparations, but they are a breeze to put together, most clocking in at thirty minutes or less with prep and cooking time included unless otherwise indicated…This cookbook is for anyone from the novice to the experienced home cook: anyone who loves the bold, satisfying aromas and flavors at the Indian buffet or wonders how much she could improve on the sesame tofu at the local Chinese restaurant should run out and get this gem of a cookbook. I've only had it for a few weeks and it has already found its way into my top ten cookbook rotation. Very impressive!”

January Magazine, 8/29/10
“Even non-vegans will enjoy these simple and well-described recipes for Madras Curry, Mu Shu Vegetables, Pad Thai, Wontons and more.”

    Great flavors, great variety, no meat!

    Great resource for ideas and combinations from a variety of Southeast Asian sources. A nice addition to a well-rounded cookbook library.

    Excellent for newbies, long time vegans, and non-vegans as well

    The recipes really can be completed in 30 minutes and there are often delicious variations if you have a little more time. I got this because I loved the first 30 minute vegan book but was worried about repetition. That is not a problem - these recipes are different from the asian ones in the first book and are not just slight variations. The vegan pad thai is the best ever and it is worth the extra few minutes to make the fishless sauce.
