The June 2016 issue of Vegetarian Living is now available and features my latest column of seasonal cooking ideas, tips, recipes and more. This month is all about the culinary traditions of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) inspired by my recent two-week trip immersing myself in this beautiful culture. The majority of Burmese are Buddhists, but there are Muslims, Christians and animists too. The staple food is rice and curry and, depending on what you can afford, vegetables, lentils and beans. There is no dairy, making it easy for vegans, and there is very little wheat, as rice is the staple grain.
Discovery Myanmar's food traditions through recipes such as Thai Bitter Aubergine Curry, Burmese Pumpkin and Peanut Curry, Tenderstem Broccoli and Noodle Stir Fry, and Shan Tofu.
