Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Veteran vegan cookbook author Klein (The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen, Vegan Italiano) sets her sights on the Caribbean, Latin America, Africa, the Pacific Rim and other exotic locales for this impressive collection of over 225 tropical vegan recipes. Eschewing meat, eggs and dairy, Klein delivers tasty vegan soups, sides, mains and desserts, leaning heavily on tropical fruits like papaya, pineapple and coconut for sweetness and richness. Black beans and potatoes are omnipresent-those with an aversion to either need not apply-but the breadth of her offerings is commendable, and many dishes will delight non-vegans as well. Simple sorbets and granitas make a refreshing and easy-to-assemble treat on a hot day, and her litany of unique salads (Thai Green Papaya with Peanut, Curried Sweet Potato with Orange, Peruvian Lima Bean and Red Radish) burst with flavor. Many items, such as Baked "French Fried" Yucca with Papaya Ketchup and Cambodian-Style Hot And Sour Eggplant require a fairly deep larder and competent knife skills, but those comfortable in the kitchen should find new favorites here.

Library Journal

Klein, a food writer and author of several other cookbooks, including The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen, here presents a lively selection of more than 200 vegan recipes inspired by the cuisines of tropical regions around the world, from Cambodian Tomato Soup to Spicy Bolivian-Style Lentils to Trinidadian Curried Mashed Potatoes. The introduction includes a helpful guide to tropical fruits and vegetables, and each recipe offers nutrition information. Many of the recipes will appeal to nonvegetarians as well. Recommended for all subject collections.

    Nookversion difficult to navigate.

    Ingredients easy to find in a larger city. Recipes a little simplistic. Focuses a lot on s. American food. Wouldve given 4 stars for paper version, but nook version is a pain to navigate. No pictures either.
