100 delicious and accessible vegetarian and vegan recipes from the Gujarat region of India, light and healthy yet packed with flavor.

Gujarati cuisine is traditionally boiled, baked, steamed, or stir-fried - creating light and healthy meals that are still packed with flavour. This cookbook explores authentic cuisine from the west coast of India - with recipes adopting the region's explosive combination of sweet, spicy, and sour flavours. Unlike the heavier curries and deep-fried foods that we often associate with Indian cuisine, From Gujarat, With Love offers a new insight on Asian cooking appropriate for vegans, vegetarians, and anyone who wants to create meat-free meals packed with flavour and nutrition.

The book features easy recipes for classic small plates, popular street food, and everything in between- from bite-sized appetisers and savoury dals to classic curries, decadent desserts, and refreshing beverages. Vina Patel has made her recipes accessible for home-cooks everywhere, including a descriptive headnote, prep and cook times, and any relevant dietary requirements for each recipe.

Recipes include Garlic Burnt Rice, Curry Cashew Masala, Smoky Aubergine Curry, Green Chickpea Salad, Spinach Chaat, Thin Layered Roti, Sapota Pudding, Rose Sorbet and Kheer with Cherries.

World-renowned food photographer Jonathan Lovekin photographs the vibrant and colourful dishes, and there are atmospheric photographs of Gujarat throughout. This book transports the reader to the site of these dishes - with compelling stories from Gujarat coupled with the delicious plant-based recipes from the region, all beautifully photographed.

As health benefits, the environment, mental well-being and weight-loss inform more diets, we continue to see exponential growth in vegetarianism.
