Vegan Quick Tips: 3 Easy Ways to Add a Little Fusion to Your Food

by JL Fields on February 12, 2014

I first met Joni Marie Newman through her words and recipes on her blog Just the Food. I then met her in person, at Vida Vegan Con, and she’s as wonderful in person as she is on the web. And on the page. That’s right, Joni just released another fabulous cookbook: Fusion Food in the Vegan Kitchen. Today she is here to share Vegan Quick Tips and to offer a chance to win a copy of this fabulous new cookbook (below). Take it away, Joni!

    I mostly stick to recipes, so I have yet to be brave enough to start being creative with them. This looks like it would provide some good inspiration, though.

  • Kathryn Bulver

    I cook without recipes for the most part, so end up mixing whatever seems right to me: Asian spices with Italian foods, etc.

  • Emily B

    Tips that seem obvious but when you hear them, it gets the creativity going. Thanks for sharing!

  • saniel

    I like adding ginger and garlic to my recipes to add zip

  • MizzB

    I like fusing traditional southern cooking with Indian, my favorite International cuisine. Curried Collards and/or sweet potatoes are really good.

  • Linda

    Thanks, so much. Awesome food fusion tips….

  • Grace

    I would like to mix and match more but am more of a recipe follower.

  • Amanda

    This cookbook looks very interesting. I like to make different flavored pizzas, besides the basic tomato sauce and veggies. My favorite is tofu Thai pizza!

  • Ali Seiter

    I love to marry Korean and Latin–kimchi tacos anyone?

  • Shannon

    As a cilantro lover… Mexican and Indian!

  • Veronica @ Veggie V!

    I don’t know that I purposly mix any cruisines. I think I’m mostly likely to mix Asian flavors with Spanish flavors, though. For example, I might use rice or soba noodles and flavor them with cumin and chili powder, etc.

  • Kelly C

    I like to mix Asian with Indian!

  • Terri Jones Cole

    I have a tendency to put miso and/or tamari in almost everything. One recent success was roasted Brussels sprouts glazed with miso, maple syrup, Dijon mustard and balsamic vinegar.

  • Michaela

    I love working with Japanese (sesame oil and seeds, ponzu sauce, mirin) and Thai (basil, coconut milk) flavors–so good!

  • owsla

    I would say California and Asian flavors.

  • Corrine

    I like to add ginger and other salt free spices to soups and salads, does that count?

  • Susan

    I like to combine Mexican and Asian flavors!

  • SusanM

    I like to add Thai flavors to various dishes.

  • Cathy

    I recently started adding Cajun spices to rice and on potatoes.
