"100+ umami-packed, plant-based dishes that showcase the diversity of both traditional and contemporary Chinese vegan food. Hannah Che was worried that switching to veganism would cause her to lose interest in the customs and cuisine that her Chinese family cherished.
But that was before she discovered Zhai cai, or vegetarian cooking, an intriguing branch of Chinese cuisine that places an emphasis on umami-rich foods and has roots that go back hundreds, if not thousands of years to the kitchens of Buddhist temples. Hannah Che demonstrates the wonder of this highly developed and inventive heritage in The Vegan Chinese Kitchen, demonstrating how practically every dish in the Chinese cuisine can be made without meat.
