Mango & Mint is a collection of favorite vegan dishes inspired by the foods of the Arab world, India, and North Africa. It follows the philosophy of a cuisine free of meat rather than one that emulates it. One common thread in these cuisines is that they can be prepared in a buffet style without a centerpiece (historically the kill from the hunt or domesticated herd).

Care has been taken to include sufficient recipes to build a complete buffet or a formal sit-down meal. Traditional recipes for familiar classics such as hummus or chana masala are enriched with tips and presentation ideas while established flavors and techniques are brought to bear on new combinations. This collection of recipes leans toward the flavorful with Arabic and North African creations such as Baba Ghanoush, Red Pepper Bulgur Salad, Spinach Pies, Harissa, Donuts in Syrup, and Indian favorites such as Apple Soup, Peanut Vada, Chana Masala with Green Chiles, and Mango Rice.

The recipes range from quick and easily created to relatively complex but requiring only basic equipment and rudimentary skill.

A section called “Ganging Up” has ideas and procedures for planning ahead and saving money by maximizing resources. This includes buying in season, getting the most out of a barbeque, freezing, cooking in batches, and creating vegetable stocks and base sauces.

The final section, “Recycled,” has recipes for normally discarded matter like watermelon rinds, leftovers, and wild plants.

An index for fresh ingredients enables one to quickly locate a recipe by provisions already in your refrigerator while a sample menu section with full-color photographs offer presentation ideas.

Praise:

“The recipes I tried are exceptional. The peanut vada have an addictively complex flavor I haven’t found in restaurant versions. The longan and onion chutney flat out kicks ass! And Mr. Garratt claims he’s not a chef? It takes a creative chef with a mastery of Indian spices to put together such a balanced chutney. I’m stealing this for Millennium!” —Eric Tucker, executive chef, Millennium Restaurant, San Francisco

"Nicky's fire-roasted baba ghanoush was absolutely amazing. Without doubt the best I've ever tasted." —M. Green, general manager, Blue Table Restaurant, Los Angeles

"Nicky Garratt's knowledge of Indian/Arabic cuisine, and specifically the spices used in its preparation, is vast indeed."
—A. McMullan, award-winning chef, San Francisco

"Nicky's meals inspire the realization that vegetarian food need not be dull to the eye or bland to the palate, and I recommend this excellent cookbook to anyone who wishes make such an agreeable discovery for themselves."
—Alvin Gibbs, bassist of the UK Subs

"All of the dishes hold unexpected surprises, like a kiss of smoke in the eggplant or a bright acidity in the lentils".
—Jonah Oakden, Boulevard Restaurant, San Francisco
