Cookbook Excitement

Roasted Cauliflower and Wilted Spinach Salad

I’m getting really excited about my upcoming cookbook. Herbivore will be publishing it, which is fantastic, and we hope to have it in people’s hands by November 15th of this year. You will be able to order it direct from Herbivore, on Amazon, and a few other places as well.

It’s going to be great!

Here’s a sneak peek of some of the recipes that will be in the book:

Sheera – An Indian Cream of Wheat

Strawberry Rambutan Boba Tea
Strawberry-Rambutan Boba Tea - Homemade Vegan Mix!

I’m really happy about all the recipes so far, but I must say, I’m a little overly excited about the boba tea. All the commercially available mixes I’ve found are not vegan (they contain “non-dairy” creamers contianing, you guessed it, dairy). I’ve figured out a way to make a boba tea powder you can mix up at home in bulk. Yippee! Boba tea for everyone!

I also wanted to give a quick shout-out to my 70+ testers who are helping me make sure the recipes work. You guys rock, I wouldn’t be able to do this without you! Thanks!

    When is your cookbook coming out? I want it ASAP!

    My mom makes sheera, and it’s delicious, and I can’t wait to make it vegan. And everything else looks delicious too!

    I am Rieddhi’s mom who has posted a comment about creamof wheat sheera, I will send you some of my vegetarian vegan receipes, sheera is 100%vegetarian, you can even make sheera from almonds, if intrested, please let me know, by the way I have a receipe for a mango pie, but the way I invented my receipe is with unflavored gelatin, any idea how to make it 100%vegan , please help, because my very concious vegetarian daughter Rieddhi will not eat my mango pie, and she is my mango pie. Thanks, Betty Shah

    I can’t wait for your cookbook to come out (I’ve already put it on my Christmas list!). I especially want to try that Sheera. I used to eat something like that at a vegetarian lunch buffet when I went to university. I have been hankering after something like it for the last two years.
