Recipe Testing, Part 3

Having tested a few dozen delectable recipes for Terry Hope Romero's forthcoming cookbook, I am thrilled to see how the final book turns out. The myriad of dishes hailing from culinary traditions around the globe will surely delight any food enthusiast, vegan or otherwise. That is, of course, just my humble and honest opinion. Come autumn (the book's release), you'll have a chance to try the recipes for yourself; I highly suggest you do. Maybe the following photos--representing a blend of testing favorites and miscellany--will be urge you further.
Coconut Roti
Roasted Pumpkin Salad with Dukka
White Rice Black Beans
Braised Tempeh with Preserved Lemon and Green Olives
Coriander Rye Muffins
Walnut, Apple & Endive Salad
Lebanese Eggplant Moussaka Stew
Brown Rice Biryani with Chickpeas and Cashews
Singapore Stir-Fried Veggie Noodles
Please feel free to visit Parts 1 and 2 of this recipe testing series. Additional images are available to view on flickr.
