I recently had the pleasure of receiving a copy of the new Happy Herbivore Abroad book to review. I love Lindsay's deliciously healthy recipes, so I was more than excited to see what she had up her sleeve for this book. If you follow Lindsay's blog, you know that she's a bit of a world traveler. In Happy Herbivore Abroad, Lindsay shares pictures of the exact places she's been to and the International cuisine she's had the pleasure of enjoying. So, not only do you feel as if you are experiencing the journey of each new place with Lindsay as you flip through every page, but you also come away with a healthy new recipe to share with friends and family.
If you have Lindsay's other books then you'll maneuver through these recipes rather easily. She uses a lot of staple ingredients in her cookbooks that you've probably already purchased for her previous recipes. You'll definitely have to add a few things here and there for the International dishes. All of the recipes are low-fat vegan versions of each dish. So, now you can make a delicious plate of food from almost any country and impress your friends with your vegan twist on the dish.
I made the Colcannon for my first recipe. This dish originates from Ireland. I never thought to add Kale to potatoes before but I think I'll start doing it more often now. I'll be making her pineapple and black bean salsa next. I've been dreaming about adding it on top of some brown rice. Yum!
Okay, so I think that's it...oh no, wait! I have a surprise for you guys! I'm giving away a copy of the Happy Herbivore Abroad! Yay!
