Vegans have been getting quite a lot of flack lately for being very vocal against factory farming and consuming meat while vigorously promoting plant only diet. Whichever side you take, there is one undisputed fact – a lot of good can come from eating more plant-based food. More fruits and vegetables you eat, higher your energy levels are, your sleep and complexion improve and you might even eliminate the symptoms of certain diseases. If you have decided to eat more greens and less meat or to go vegetarian / vegan, you’ll find the book called Salad Samurai quite beneficial.
You could have guessed from the book’s title what it is all about. Making salads! Many different kinds of salads! Delicious salads! The book is written by an award-winning chef, a co-author of Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook, and a self-professed foodpunk Terry Hope Romero who certainly knows a thing or two about vegetables. By the way, she also holds a certificate in Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell University.
Just to wet your appetite, here are a few titles of the salad recipes – Spring Herb Salad with Maple Orange Tempeh, Seared Garlic Chickpeas, Spinach, and Farro, Deviled Kale Caesar Salad, Pomegranate Quinoa Holiday Tabouli, Mushroom, Barley, and Brussels Harvest Bowl, Seitan Steak Salad with Green Peppercorn Dressing… The recipes are based on whole food ingredients and seasonal produce and they are organized by season.
When you look at Terry’s recipes contained in Salad Samurai, you’ll come to learn that salads are anything but boring side dishes. And all of the salads (over a hundred of them) contained in the book are gluten-free, high in protein (to sustain you during the day), quite easy to make, fulfilling, hearty and scrumptious.
