Plentiful: Vegan Jamaican Recipes to Repeat (Hardcover)
In this first-of-its-kind book, Denai Moore pays homage to flavours and authentic dishes from her Jamaican roots whilst firmly planting them within a modern-day context. From her convenient Rice & Peas Arancini to her comforting 'Oxtail' Gravy & Roasted Garlic Spring Onion Mash, the recipes are approachable, engaging and downright delicious.
Jamaican food is often misrepresented, simplifed and reduced to being really spicy – and MEAT heavy. Denai is a Jamaican chef who loves to make vegan food and in Plentiful she debunks this taboo about Jamaican food. With this book, she shows how exciting, diverse, and vibrant vegan flavours and Jamaican food truly are.
