Japan: The Vegetarian Cookbook

Healthy and elegant recipes.

From the author of global bestseller Japan: The Cookbook, here in Japan: The Vegetarian Cookbook we are introduced to more than 250 delicious, healthy vegetarian Japanese recipes for home cooks everywhere.

Nancy Singleton Hachisu is a unique food writer, being a Westerner who lives in Japan – and has done for decades. She is a California native, living on an organic Japanese farm since 1988. In this collection of new recipes, Nancy has a focus on Japanese vegetarian dishes. She showcases the delicate flavours of Japan’s delicious ingredients which are more widely available outside that country these days. Those who love Japan and want to eat more plant-based dishes will find this book fascinating and bursting with ideas.

Recipes are divided by cooking style – dressed, vinegared, deep-fried, simmered, steamed, stir-fried, grilled, pickled, and sweet. Some ingredients might not be available at your local supermarket but will likely be found online from specialist purveyors of Japanese foods such as Japan Centre https://www.japancentre.com
