Teff Love was published in early 2015, and is a 192 page cookbook dedicated to one of my favorite cuisines on Earth--Ethiopian Food. The recipes inside Teff Love are made from easy to find unprocessed ingredients, such as whole grains, legumes, vegetables and spices. Most of the recipes are also soy-free, and only one recipe in the book includes gluten (which I included as a protein option for those who enjoy it).
In general, the recipes in Teff Love can be grouped into four categories:
1. Popular fasting (vegan) dishes commonly found in Ethiopian/Eritrean restaurants across North America.
2. Traditional, but less common fasting recipes that readers who dine in Ethiopian restaurants might not be familiar with.
3. Traditional Ethiopian recipes I've vegan-ized or embellished with a creative spin.
4. "Fusion" recipes, which contain Ethiopian flavors I've added to non traditional foods.
The biggest question I get from folks considering Teff Love is whether the book calls for hard to find spices. When I was writing the book, I tried really hard to make the recipes as accessible and grocery store friendly as possible. Most of the harder to find spices are listed as optional throughout the book, but are easy to find if you have access to an Ethiopian or Indian market. They're also easy to order online. Lots more details on the spice which and whats are detailed inside the book.
Teff Love was voted Cookbook of the Year 2015 by the Editors at VegNews!! You can read about it in the November-December holiday issue. I'm still reeling from being awarded this honor, and am utterly pleased and excited that these recipes are being enjoyed by vegans and omnivores alike.
Teff Love was also listed as one of the best cookbooks of 2015 by Powell's Books!
