Ever-Green Vietnamese: Super-Fresh Recipes, Starring Plants from Land and Sea 

by Andrea Nguyen 

 

Plant-based cooking meets the dynamic flavors of Vietnamese cuisine in these 125+ recipes and variations—from the James Beard Award–winning author of Vietnamese Food Every Day

Although many people think of Vietnamese cooking as beefy pho and meat-filled sandwiches, traditional Vietnamese cooking has always involved a lot of plants and seafood and a little meat. In Ever-Green Vietnamese, Andrea Nguyen details how cooks in her home country draw on their natural resourcefulness and Buddhist traditions to showcase a wide array of herbs and vegetables in flavorful, comforting recipes.

Filled with the brilliant advice and exceptional teaching Nguyen is known for, the book offers recipes for flavor-boosting condiments and sauces (her incredible DIY vegan fish sauce), exciting ways to enjoy tofu, and dozens of vegetable-driven sides and mains, including a few that incorporate a bit of meat (many with vegetarian or vegan options). Home cooks will revel in Nguyen's ingenious recipes for:
 

  • favorite snacks, like Smoky Tofu-Nori Wontons and Steamed Veggie Bao
  • Vietnamese classics, like Fast Vegetarian Pho and Banh Mi with Vegan Mayonnaise and Bologna
  • simple sides, like Nuoc Cham Cabbage Stir-Fry and Green Mango, Beet, and Herb Salad
  • wholesome hacks, like Sweet Potato and Shrimp Fritters and Oven-Fried Crispy Shiitake Imperial Rolls


Full of cultural context, loads of instruction, and practical cooking tips, Ever-Green Vietnamese is perfect for anyone looking to incorporate plant-based Vietnamese cooking into their busy lives.
