Flavorful vegetarian versions of America's favorite one-dish meals: ramen, pho, bibimbap, dumplings, and burrito bowls A restorative bowl of vegetarian ramen sent Lukas Volger on a quest to capture the full flavor of all the one-bowl meals that are the rage today—but in vegetarian form. With the bowl as organizer, the possibilities for improvisational meals full of seasonal produce and herbs are nearly endless. Volger’s ramen explorations led him from a simple bowl of miso ramen to a glorious summer ramen with corn broth, tomatoes, and basil. From there, he went on to the Vietnamese noodle soup pho, with combinations like caramelized spring onions, peas, and baby bok choy. His edamame dumplings with mint are served in soup or over salad, while spicy carrot dumplings appear over toasted quinoa and kale for a rounded dinner. Imaginative grain bowls range from ratatouille polenta to black rice burrito with avocado. And unlike their meatier counterparts, these dishes can be made in little time and without great expense. Volger also includes many tips, techniques, and indispensable base recipes perfected over years of cooking, including broths, handmade noodles, sauces, and garnishes.

Meatless Vietnamese cooking for vegetarians and omnivores alike. Traditionally, Vietnamese dishes are made with some kind of meat or seafood—most often pork and shrimp. But by cooking with Vietnamese home cooks, chefs, and Mahayana Buddhist monks, Cameron Stauch learned about a tradition of vegetarian cooking that is lighter and just as flavorful. Spicy, tangy, crunchy, and sweet, the dishes in Vegetarian Viet Nam range from soups and noodle bowls to main courses with rice and stir-fried vegetables, as well as desserts and fruit drinks. Some recipes are naturally vegetarian, like the colorful Twelve Predestined Affinities Salad, while others draw on the full arsenal of Vietnamese herbs, spices, and sauces to make tofu and mushrooms as juicy as any meat filling. With a fully illustrated glossary to help readers assemble their own vegetarian Vietnamese pantry, Vegetarian Viet Nam will unlock an entire universe of flavor to anyone who wants healthy, tasty, and sustainable food.
