We can live a healthy and happy life by controlling the choices we make, for ourselves and for our environment. By eating foods that are produced organically we reduce our exposure to harmful pesticides and artificial fertilisers. Organic agriculture preserves healthy soils and prevents loss of biodiversity which is critical for a balanced ecosystem for our planet. This book offers you a selection of international recipes, vegetarian and non-vegetarian, using organic products so that you can enjoy the best gourmet food that is best for your health as well.You may like to start with the Baby Spinach Salad with Grilled Onions and Tomato Vinaigrette, or a fragrant Tomato-Coriander Broth.
For the main course you may like to choose a Moroccan Vegetable and Chickpea Stew with Couscous, or go Italian with Pasta Primavera, or go Asian with Bean Curd and Bean-sprouts in light Soy Sauce with Chinese Green. If you are craving Indian food you will find recipes for classic favourites like Butter Chicken, Prawn Malai Curry, Curry with Potatoes and Garden Peas (Aloo Matar), Aubergine in Sesame-Peanut Sauce (Baghare Baigan).With dessert you can fulfil your wildest fantasies – would you like to feel cosy and warm with a Hot Lemon Grass and Ginger Soufflé, or Saffron Poached Pears with Berry Sauce? If a chilled dessert is your ultimate desire then Holy Basil and Yogurt Cake with Red Currant Compote or a Mango and Stevia Parfait are there for your pleasure.This book takes you to the world of Fine Dining – but the recipes are given in a user-friendly format so that even a beginner can be certain of good results. A brief description at the start of each recipe describes the dish. The steps in the method are explained in great detail. A Glossary explains culinary terms and methods.
