Dishes from the Silk Road have their roots in the ancient village food traditions of Asia, where a few healthy ingredients from local gardens were blended with spices to create meals that are nutritious, varied and flavorful, as well as being ethical and sustainable.

Author Dahlia Abraham-Klein is a food educator who draws from her own family heritage of Central Asia to create meals that honor what is most meaningful about cooking and food everywhere in the world–a connectedness to place, history and family. Her book is about developing culinary awareness and celebrating diversity–discovering foods with contrasting tastes and textures that are simple and easy to prepare, yet totally exciting and different.

Silk Road Vegetarian delves into the cultural and spiritual traditions of the Silk Road to show how cultural traditions have influenced the cuisine. Each dish has a rich history–linking past to present in a particular place. At the same time, the recipes address pressing contemporary needs by showing us how to eat a healthy, balanced and yet interesting diet with locally-sourced, earth-friendly ingredients.

The astonishing array of recipes in this book will inspire every home cook. All dishes are easy and simple to prepare, and codes are applied to identify which ones are: Vegetarian Vegan Gluten-free

Take your tastebuds on a culinary adventure along the Silk Road I’ve been vegetarian for over ten years, and am always looking for creative, healthy ways to spice up my cooking. I’ve taught students from more than 100 countries, including many from Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan) who were eager to share their languages and cuisines with me. However, there are very few cookbooks that focus on this region, even less so from a vegetarian context, so this is one cuisine that remained relatively unknown to me…

Love It! Silk Road Vegetarian is truly one of a kind. As a Jewish woman I feel that every cookbook I encounter has the same types of boring fish, chicken, and meat dishes that everyone already knows and is tired of. Silk Road Vegetarian gives me so many exotic dining options bursting with flavor. I love knowing that any recipe I choose is gluten free and vegetarian since I can cook and eat for my family without feeling guilty afterwards. Another thing is that a lot of these recipes are cultural recipes…

A Culinary Treasure This is my new go to cookbook for preparing delicious and healthful exotic dishes with ease. I am making it a point to try a different recipe every Friday. Dahlia Klein uses fresh ingredients and spices to create interesting new flavors that are simply stated, over the top. I recommend this cookbook to both aspiring cooks and experienced chefs. The ingredients are accessible and step by step instructions flawless. I have tried the Persian green herbed stew, roasted beet and nectarine salad…
