My younger daughter is a vegetarian, and I am always looking for food for her, as well as the rest of the family to eat.  Let me just put this out there, I am not a vegan or vegetarian, but I am not opposed to eating such dishes.  My aunt is a vegan, and I have enjoyed several dishes that she makes when go visit her.  My daughter also has a gluten intolerance, so I have to make some substitutions to the recipe I made for this review, but the overall taste was fantastic and my daughter is ever so thankful for a new source of recipes to pull from.

101 Healthy Vegan Asian Food (Quick & Easy vegan recipes Book 5) is a kindle edition cookbook.  The recipes are broken down into four sections:

Chapter 1: Healthy Asian vegan appetizers recipes 
Chapter 2: Super easy Asian vegan soups recipes 
Chapter 3: Amazing Asian vegan main dishes recipes 
Chapter 4: Original Asian Vegan desserts

I spent a couple hours looking through all the recipes and bookmarking all the ones that I thought that my daughter would want to try.  I was pretty sure the Tofu and Broccoli Stir Fry would be at the top of her list to try, and thought she might want to try the Orange Tofu as well.  Looking through the recipes, I was a little sad that not all of them had pictures.  I am a very visual person and like to see pictures.  I feel like the cookbook assumes the reader has some cooking experience with some of the directions.  Some of the tofu recipes did not specify how firm of tofu to use, and most of the recipes to not give too specific directions as to what temperature to cook with.  If you have some experience cooking, this is not an issue, but to an inexperienced cook, this could be problematic.  I fall into the category that a recipe is just a general guideline, and I'm always tweaking things to my family's needs and taste.

My daughter and I hit the store to pick up some ingredients to make a version of the Tofu Broccoli Stir Fry.  We followed the recipe, making necessary ingredient substitutions as necessary to accommodate her wheat intolerance (soy sauce of all things has wheat protein in it).  The end result was fantastic.  The directions are pretty easy to follow, and it did not take that long to make her dinner.   My daughter loved the dish and is excited about expanding her cooking knowledge.  We have several other recipes bookmarked to try out.
