Making the vegetarian recipes from a Buddhist centre at home?
In this book you will find recipes by Peter van Overbeek, chef at the Maitreya Institute – the oldest Buddhist centre in The Netherlands – translated for the home kitchen by popular demand.
Originally from Rotterdam, Peter is a no nonsense chef. Simple ingredients, no complicated techniques, big results. By combining the different dishes in various ways, you will never get bored. Most recipes can be made vegan or gluten free.
What makes this book special, is that it also explains Buddhism and food, like the traditional division of ingredients, of which it is presumed they strengthen or weaken focus.
And, are all Buddhists vegetarians? We’ll explain. The answer will surprise you!
