Curry Tofu Egg-Less Salad

The staples of a vegan egg salad are easy to get down. Tofu, some vegan mayonnaise and a spice for that yellow coloring eggs give, like turmeric or curry.

Kim Barnouin, who prefers Nasoya vegan mayonnaise, chose to put curry in this vegan egg salad recipe she created that’s found in her new cookbook, “Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook.” Curry, she notes on her blog, is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. This has been shown in both research and anecdotally. One doctored recalled that when his patients vacationed in India and ate the curry-rich dishes popular in the region, their arthritic pain decreased.

Kim Barnouin doesn’t think there can be too many cookbook authors in the kitchen.

During an interview with UK’s So Feminine, the co-author of Skinny Bitch and author of her recently released cookbook, Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook, said recipe developers and food writers should definitely pursue their passion of writing deliciously.

“When you find the thing that you are passionate about, go after it 100%. There will never be too many cookbook authors. I love cookbooks so much and I am always on the lookout for new ones. Finding your specific niche can help narrow down your book ideas and help you focus on creating your specific style.”

Fortunately for vegetarians, vegans and those looking to reduce animal products in their diets, cookbook trends have shown the market is welcoming this guidance with open arms.

One half of the Skinny Bitches is back, with a book filled with not only recipes, diet and fitness advice, but thoughts on eating to create and maintain a healthier planet.

In Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook, author Kim Barnouin, uses a chapter of her latest work to give a firm lecture on sustainable eating minus the animal rights component.

“This is not where I criticize factory farming for its inhumane and utter disdain for animal welfare,” Barnouin writes. “Skinny Bitch already did that. Actually, I’ve got a whole other bone to pick with the industry: our food system and its immense contributions to greenhouse gas emission and global warming.”

“There is a great variety of fresh fruits and vegetables in season in the winter. Just because it’s cold out doesn’t mean you have to give up these foods! Even if it comes from a state or two away, it’s still better than importing fruits from another country, which can raise the cost of the food due to shipping, and it’s not what Mother Nature intended for us to eat in the winter. We need hearty foods that will keep us warm! There are clementine and mandarin oranges, grapefruit, pears, persimmons, lots of root vegetables such as turnips, sweet potatoes, and rutabagas. Leeks, kale, fennel, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, and radicchio!”

—-Kim Barnouin, co-author of Skinny Bitch, during an interview with The Phillyist.

Kim gave a lot of suggestions, but if you need more, check out the Seasonal Fruit and Vegetable Guide at Real Simple.
