If you like authentic Mexican flavors, then you'll LOVE Vegan Mexico , the new book by Jason Wyrick. There's lots to love about this book, from the warming soups and refreshing salads to the fun dips and hearty sandwiches. There are also loads of great recipes for Mexican favorites such as tamales, enchiladas, tostadas, tacos, and more. Corn Ice Cream with Candied Pecans, anyone?
Everyone who has cooked from Jason's previous book, Vegan Tacos , already knows - Jason understands Mexican cuisine and how to get as much flavor as possible out of the ingredients. With so many great recipes in this book, it was difficult to pick just one for this blog tour of Vegan Mexico. Ultimately I went with the Plantain Chips with Orange Aioli - so easy to make and so much flavor. (If you're avoiding oil, try making them in your air fryer!) I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.
