If you are an adventurous cook and enjoy trying foods from around the world, you will enjoy this collection of recipes straight from the Caribbean. The twist is, these recipes are all vegan. Some are gluten-free, and a few of them are raw food recipes. Some of the ingredients may be unfamiliar to you, but with a little research, you're likely to be able to find them, especially if you live in or near a large city where there are ethnic and international markets. You'll be able to try such novel dishes as Ackee, Conkie, Curry Katahar or Jackfruit, Eggplant Choka, Green Mango Sour, Okara Fishcakes (yes, they're vegan!), Pigeon Pea Stew, and Sour Sop Smoothies. The directions are clear, and most don't require any special kitchen appliances other than a blender.
Also included are some nutrition tidbits that will enhance your knowledge of healthy eating. There are also a few home remedies for common minor ailments, such as coughs, pain and inflammation, anemia, heartburn, itchy skin, and minor infections.
