Start your review of Silk Road Vegetarian: Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten Free Recipes for the Mindful Cook
The back of "Silk Road Vegetarian" tells readers they will be embarking on a "Central Asian culinary adventure," and that's exactly what this book is - a delicious adventure. For those who wish to cook their way through it, Abraham-Klein brings the North American reader into both an ancient, traditional world that she has combined with seemingly very modern sensibilities - mostly gluten-free recipes that rely heavily on local, seasonal food and vegetarianism. (Abraham-Klein explains that relying ...more

This is a beautiful, accessible book packed with a rich variety of veg recipes (and pretty pictures) inspired by cultures across the Silk Road network. The ingredients are practical even if you aren't an avid CSA participant like the author (you might have to explore the bulk and organic aisles of your supermarket, or substitute a different kind of rice or oil). You don't have to be a kitchen expert for most of the recipes, though I'd recommend a food processor. I want to try pretty much everyth ...more

This is all veg and vegan recipes from India and the Middle East, and so far everything I've made from it has turned out beautifully except this one soup that's like one part lentils and five parts onion and was just too much onion for me. Even before reading all the way through, I found two recipes that have become staples - there's a gorgeous biryani, and a great middle eastern dish that's basically rice and lentils, flavored with onion, dried fruit, and spices. I've dog-eared about another te ...more

I keep coming back to this cookbook. I think it’s time to buy it for myself instead of constantly checking it out from the library.

Firstly - I am not vegetarian nor do I require a gluten free diet. But my family always tell me that we should eat less meat and try to cook more vegetarian. I can't help but agree. I don't know many vegetarian recipes, and what I do know just conjures up an image of boring.I am pleased to tell you that this book put my perception of boring vegetarian recipes completely on it's head. I loved the vibrant and exciting recipes here.

At the beginning, a short intro story, the spice pantry and basic p

What a wonderful cookbook. Everything I've made from here has been delicious. I especially love the herb stew and stuffed acorn squash recipes. This cookbook is good because it is very specialized and unique: vegetarian, healthful, ethnic, glutten free. I also like the introduction in the beginning about the author, she seems really cool. Plus, many of them use ingredients that are easy to find in non-specialty grocery stores which is always a plus when cooking ethnic foods. ...more

I have really enjoyed cooking from this book, and learning more about spices. Since reading this I've been slowly accumulating spices and using things like cardamon and fresh tumeric for the first time. I also found the author's family history interesting. I'd highly recommend this book, vegetarian or not. ...more
