On The Table Read Magazine, “the best creativity magazine in the UK“, in her debut cookbook, The Vegetarian Reset, Vasudha Viswanath celebrates a lifestyle where a foodie’s sensibility intersects with eating healthy.
The Vegetarian Reset
If you’re a foodie that craves variety, flavor, and fun, I wrote this book for you. To keep you interested, your palate happy, and to woo you into cooking delicious food that puts nutrition back into focus. I hope these recipes make healthy eating compelling enough that you do it because you want to, not just because you should.
The Vegetarian Reset by Vasudha Viswanath solves the never-ending dilemma that vegetarians face – is life fun when you eat a salad every day or is your health taking a backseat when you eat a big bowl of rice or pasta without enough protein?
Within the pages of this delicious cookbook, Vasudha has created 75 low-carb and high-protein recipes that are rooted in whole foods like vegetables, legumes, spices, and healthy fats. Her recipes take readers on a culinary trip around the world, drawing inspiration from an array of traditional eastern and western cuisines.
The recipes put vegetables front and center for low-carb alternatives to white rice or noodles and creating breads out of less-processed alternatives like chickpea and almond flour. Smoothies are refreshingly savory, and desserts are lightly sweetened with whole fruit. Nutritional facts are provided for each recipe. Moderate amounts of full-fat dairy and eggs are called for in some recipes, but vegan alternatives are often suggested as well.
Breads (Zucchini Bread, Avocado Toast, Dosas with Chutney, Eggplant Chili Cheese Toast, Khachapuri)
