Have you ever wondered “What do monks eat?” or “Was Buddha a vegetarian?” Are you attempting to infuse more spirituality into your life? Are you looking for a way to make food consumption more about feeding your soul?
If so, then the Buddha’s Belly series is for you. This second book continues on the path to a more transcendent approach to eating. By providing both wonderful recipes and the history of spiritual food, this newest edition promotes holistic eating as well. Most people have heard the phrase “you are what you eat”, meaning what you put in your stomach is important, aside from whatever religious persuasion you follow. This is one of the reasons mindful eating has become an important trend. Using your gut instinct may depend on the shape your gut is in. Both cookbooks are guides to eating as Buddhists do, showing the reasons and the way to explore the connection between food and spirituality. If you’ve already tried the first volume, what you will gain with this second one is more recipes and more regional takes on the cuisine. Like its predecessor, Buddha’s Belly Book 2 presents colorful, appetizing pictures of “monk food” that will tempt you to try the monk diet yourself. The six newly-included countries of Nepal, Bhutan, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos and Tibet offer more Buddhist dishes.
This is much more than your standard cookbook. Before each country’s section, there is a history of the region’s traditions - spiritual food for thought - which is then followed by a segment on the origins of the flavors to be found there. Though each is about a page in length, the information contained there adds potency to pursuing a more thoughtful approach to preparing and eating on a daily basis.
So you get the bonus of learning about:
- The Birthplace of Buddha
- The Land of Pagodas
- The Roof of the World
- A Cultural Cradle in the Himalayas
- Descendants of Sticky Rice
- A Historical Kingdom
The author, Sally Primrose, includes a thoughtful introduction, which again addresses the thrust of both her Buddha Belly books – that sometimes the effort to feed your soul involves something as simple as what you put into your body.
The 31 recipes presented here vary greatly. Here is a small sampling of titles:
- Dalai Lama’s Momos
- Chili Cheese Stew
- Green Papaya Salad
- Vegetarian Pancakes
- Yellow Split Pea Fritters
- Potato with Bamboo Shoots
Although book one – Recipes for the Enlightened Mind – was strictly vegetarian, book two does include some preparation instructions that involve chicken or seafood for authenticity. However, on any such dish, those ingredients can just be skipped to provide a vegetarian meal. When you are choosing food for spirituality, the choice of how to achieve that remains yours.
Buddhist cuisine is built equally on the ingredients and its mindful preparation. You’ll find lots of useful information on the philosophy’s food beliefs so that if your desire is to achieve a truly Buddhist way of eating, you’ll have both guidance and a number of new appealing recipes from wh
Why is food for the human body not just matter of physical nourishment?
Done correctly, it is also about feeding your soul. That’s what this gorgeous vegetarian cookbook is all about – spiritual food. It also happens to look beautiful, both in dishes and design. Reading through one of the ingredient list is a mouth-watering proposition.
In the introduction of the book, there is a brief explanation of the thought process behind it and the relevant teachings of Buddha - spiritual food for thought. A simple but yet powerful statement from the intro brings the desire to follow a monk diet into focus:"a basic need such as eating can still be a noble and purposeful act.”
Throughout the ages, food and spirituality have been connected; in religions, traditions and philosophy, and now in our everyday life. Inside this engaging collection of recipes, you’ll find food to feed your soul, not simply quench a physical hunger.
The offerings are divided into countries of origin:
From the very first of the 32 recipes – Lo Han Jai, otherwise known as Buddha’s Delight and traditionally served on Chinese New Year – you’ll be delighted by the presentations of colors, textures and tastes. Many people envision monk food as very plain and perhaps flavorless, but nothing could be further from the truth. It is, in fact, proof that vegetarianism does not have to be boring. One look at the dishes displayed here and you’ll know that food to feed your soul, holistic food, isn’t dull or tasteless at all.
Some of the highlights here are:
- Crispy Tofu Rolls (with a texture that mimics roast duck)
- Zen Temple Dumplings from Japan
- The Indian dish Easy Lentil Curry
- Vegetarian Quang Noodle Soup straight from Vietnam
Each are very different from the others, which is true throughout the Buddha’s Belly cookbook. With each recipe listing prep and cook times, as well as how many it will serve, and an ingredients list, you’ll easily know how to feed your soul with a different dish every day for a month, if you so wish. You’ll find yourself returning again and again, revisiting the art and recipes to inspire yourself to new, more soulful culinary heights.You don’t have to be a monk to eat like one anymore!
