There’s a new book out from Author, Blogger Emily Von Euw that I’ve been delving into this month. It’s called aptly:
Some thoughts on her book and then, a chance to win a copy for yourself!
My husband and I have some kind of an Asian inspired meal at least once a week it seems; Sometimes twice even. Emily’s new book is perfect for Asian food lovers specifically in my mind. It celebrates the beauty of fresh food, namely vegetables and that’s just how I feel about home cooked, easy Asian dishes. You always have a great deal of whole food ingredients with Asian and that makes me feel like even if the dish is cooked some, it’s not too far from the vine. Whether it’s a special Sushi, spiced up Bok Choy, Daikon Salad (my new fav.) or simply a 1 or 2 ingredient meal that dressed up with spices, Emily knows fresh food.
Starting her blogging days with an almost exclusively Raw diet, this new book blends two lifestyles together to appreciate both cold and warmed meals to bring out the best in fresh ingredients. Many of the recipes are similar to things I make so often already, but they’ve been Shoozed up a bit to make them aesthetically bold yet unpretentious.
I have a mean bowl of Ramen soup that I can whip up in under 30 minutes but my all time favorite quickie soup has always been a Miso with a few choice, barely cooked vegetables to give it a bit of texture. Emily’s version echos my own in almost every way and especially with the addition of leeks. Soup perfection here and most likely the healthiest bowl of anything that you could ingest. It has the flavors of traditional Miso but the twist of a Raw-foodies’ preference for clean, simple foods that taste great.
Her latest book is as simple as Emily is.
Two sections, 1st Raw recipes, next warmed and/or cooked.
No long intro into why or to eat a Plant-based diet. No lengthy list of pantry helpers or gadgets you’ll need for these recipes. This book is just about good, healthy, fresh foods and how to make them taste their simple best. There are no sugary desserts in this one either. Emily did that already in Rawsome Vegan Baking, case you missed it…
The Rawsome Vegan Cookbook has beautiful big pictures along with simply developed recipes for the beginner or an old hand at Vegan cooking like me. You’ll find luxurious sauces, unusual veggies and unique combinations to make that old cauliflower on your counter come alive again, just as Mother Nature intended.
If you can’t get satisfaction out of a plate full of Emily’s ‘Fully Loaded Yams’? Well, you just need to stop the fast food for a while, forever. And start feeding your body what it needs and what it can grow on instead of boring old-fashioned ways of stuffing in your calories each day. Emily shows how and why we should appreciate living, fresh foods in this book and if nothing else, you’ll get some inspiration to create your own fresh combinations in the kitchen.
