75 satisfying plant-based recipes for comfort food from around the world. A food-lover and keen traveller, Jackie Kearney became a favourite MasterChef UK finalist in 2011 thanks to her creative approach to vegetarian and vegan cooking that took inspiration from all over the world. However, if there is one thing that she loves to cook most, it is those comfort food classics that can satisfy any hunger pangs - and in this collection of vegan recipes, she shows how easy it is to do that as part of a plant-based diet. She begins with flavours from her childhood in No Place Like Home, featuring recipes such as My Big Fat Veggie Cottage Pie and Root Vegetable Rosti with Home-made Beans and Smoky Tempeh. European Summers follows with a selection of relaxed dishes like Campfire Risotto with Asparagus and Lemon, French Onion Soup with Cashew Cheese Croutons, and Roasted Aubergine Lasagne with Puy Lentils. Jackie is renowned for her love of Asian flavours, so the next chapter, Asian Comfort, is where her passion really shines. Try Beetroot and Watercress Samosas with Pear Chutney, Shami Kebab served in a naan or the classic South-east Asian soup Singaporean Laksa. For dessert, a Chai-spiced Rice Pudding with Ginger Cookies is the perfect winter warmer. In the final chapter, Americana, she takes the reader on a tour of the United States where some of the world's favourite comfort foods were born. Who can resist Crispy Fried Green Tomatoes with Spicy Ranch-style Dressing or Buffalo-style Aubergine Wings? Inspiration comes from across the continent, with a vegan take on the classic NYC deli sandwich Reuban's Revenge to a hearty Texan Scramble Breakfast Burrito, as well as those best-loved American sweet treats such as Raspberry and Cacao `Cheesecake' and Portland Maple Creme Doughnuts. With a guide to the vegan storecupboard and basic recipes for Easy Vegan Mayo, Cashew Cream, Flax Eggs and Almond Ricotta, this is the essential book for all those looking for deliciously satisfying plant-based food.
