Vegetarian food is deeply woven into Mexico’s diverse culinary history. In this blockbuster recipe collection, home cooks will discover delicious traditional and modern dishes made with corn, beans, spices, and the incredible bounty of fruit, vegetables, legumes, seeds, and edible flowers grown across Mexico.
The healthy, wholesome recipes, from chef and restaurateur Margarita Carrillo Arronte, are meat free by design, spotlighting Mexico’s outstanding foods, instead of relying on hard-to-source ingredients or substitutions. Each is presented with clear, straightforward instructions accessible to home cooks of all skill levels.
Along with authentic breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and desserts, the book includes an entire chapter dedicated to pulses – high-protein superfoods such as chickpeas, beans and lentils – as well as special sections for breads, drinks, sauces, and basics that every fan of Mexican cuisine should master.
Get a taster of the book by cooking up Poc Chuc with Mushrooms, Barley Salad with Pomegranate Maruca Style and Spicy Lentils with Vegetarian Sausages. Recipes shared on the Meat Free Monday website courtesy of Margarita Carrillo Arronte and Phaidon.
