Yesterday I sat outside in the beautiful sunshine and ate my lunch.  It’s been a warm winter in Ohio, the days feeling much more like summer than winter.  I’m not complaining really, I prefer warm weather to snow.  I had put the birdbath back outside earlier in the day, and I watched familiar birds and squirrels join me in a noontime meal.

I was eating a bowl of Chunky Sweet Potato Stew and its spicy sweetness was the perfect compliment to the warm rays of sun.  This African-inspired dish from Morocco is made with chunks of sweet potatoes, carrots, and vegetables married with a rich- and slightly spicy, coconut curry broth.  It is, simply superb- in looks and taste.

This dreamy stew comes from The Healthy Voyager’s Global Kitchen by Carolyn Scott-Hamilton, the creator and mastermind behind The Healthy Voyager web series and radio show.  Let your taste buds travel to Argentina, Italy, South Africa, Thailand, Greece, and more- all without having to break out your passport.  This gorgeous cookbook is jam-packed with tantalizing recipes from around the globe, 150 to be exact.  Sinful Sticky Toffee Pudding.  Bolognese Baked Gnocchi with Spinach.  Seitan Wienerschnitzel.  Carribbean Callaloo.  Kele Wele, just to name a few.  All gloriously vegan.

I’m just going to come right out and say it- I love this book for so many reasons.  First, I love the overall design of the book.  The recipes are grouped by locale, making meal planning a cinch.  There’s a quick reference legend for special dietary needs on each recipe, shopping lists, and kitchen tips.  But really what shines in this book are the recipes- and of course the photos, they’re pure candy for your eyes.

I’m already planning my next taste bud tour, I’m thinking Just Like Oma’s Apfelstreudel (Apple Streudel) will fit the bill nicely.  Before becoming vegan, I had been eating my own Oma’s Apfelstreudel all my life- I can’t wait to try this vegan version.
