Praise for ‘Laxmi’s Vegetarian Kitchen’
“Laxmi’s Vegetarian Kitchen,” can tempt even confirmed carnivores. Laxmi shares recipes with such warmth and enthusiasm, she might very well convert her readers to vegetarianism. Building on dishes she loved in her native India, the author has streamlined that labor-intensive cuisine, making full use of the modern American kitchen. And she limits ingredients to what you’ll find in well-stocked mainstream markets, making Indian cooking even more accessible.

Trimmed of fat and funkiness, vegetarian food emerges as light, beautiful, ethnic and even American.
