The Traveling Vegan

Exciting Plant-Based Meals from Latin America, East Asia, the Middle East and more

With this exciting cookbook, you’ll eat your way through the Mediterranean, Middle East, Asia and Latin America, all without compromising flavor or your vegan diet. So take a bite, take a journey and let The Traveling Vegan Cookbook be your guide to show-stopping deliciousness from around the world. Whip up a feast for your guests with a Mezze platter inspired by Kirsten’s memories of many warm nights spent in cozy Greek taverns, or indulge in a smooth and rich Lentil Moussaka based on a favorite recipe from her time living in Cyprus. Discover the plant-based way to make Sabich (completed with a vegan “egg”) through a recipe that mimics the creamy, silken version she came to love while living in Tel Aviv. Fall head over heels for matcha, just as Kirsten did during her travels in Japan, as you luxuriate in totally dairy-free Matcha Ice Cream. And be transported to the sunny streets of Mexico as you bite into the tender, street-style Elotes.

Take a Journey With some of the Best Vegan Recipes the World Has to Offer!

Traveling as a Vegan

Some countries and cuisines are naturally more vegan-friendly than others. Sometimes it might seem as if everyone is eating an animal-based diet and you will not be able to find vegan options at all. But with a few tips and tricks, you can get along and find delicious vegan food everywhere!

Vegan-friendly Countries

While some countries might surprise you with a booming vegan scene as well as a vast array of traditional dishes that are vegan by default, other places might be a bit more difficult to navigate food-wise. In this book you’ll find a short list of countries that are known to be vegan foodie heaven.

Gluten-free Options

Because I know lots of people are struggling with allergies and I want this book to be as inclusive as possible, two-thirds of the recipes in this book are gluten-free by default and many others can be easily modified by using, i.e. gluten-free pasta.
