"The book is beautifully illustrated and the recipes are mostly simple, quick and easy to follow. Longtime vegetarians, especially those with a macrobiotic background (which in America has seriously deep Japanese roots), will be familiar with many of these ingredients. . . Fujii provides a helpful, illustrated glossary, as well as some basic how-to material for preparing staples." -Associated Press"Vegetarians, vegans and even lovers of steak teriyaki will find much to savor in this introduction to the quiet wonders of Buddhist temple cuisine, or shojin ryori. ...Tae Hamamura's color photographs are mouth-watering, whether depicting Kenchin Style Vegetable Soup or a simple bowl of Ginger Rice." -Publishers Weekly"Clean and crisp, this nourishing guide brings a healthy, natural culinary tradition from Japanese temples to the American table. . . . a true antidote to the overindulgent American diet, this is more than a recipe collection--it's a refreshing approach to food that is sure to make you look and feel renewed." -Kirkus Reviews"Emphasizing natural and healthy ingredients such as fresh seasonal vegetables, and the staples of grains, and tofu, these creations are simple and elegant delights, delicious without undue extravagance. . . . Highly recommended." -Midwest Book Review"Touting the benefits of vegetarian and vegan diets, The Enlightened Kitchen presents dishes that anyone would love, while the fantastic photographs will tempt even the most die-hard carnivore to at least try the recipes. Knowing that a healthy life-style and long life takes work, this new cookbook espouses good, sensible meals which can encourage weight loss and improve insulin sensitivity. The bonus? The food tastes good.... I'm hooked. I try to eat sensibly and plan to live to be 110! I expect The Enlightened Kitchen to help me meet my objective."


Buddhist temple cooking (J: shojin ryori), with its emphasis on the use of fresh, seasonal vegetables, and staples such as seaweed, grains and tofu, is the perfect antidote to the unhealthy eating habits of Western society, where obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other diet-related illnesses are rife. Traditionally, shojin food in temples is of great spiritual significance. For the monks who spend their days in the practice of rigorous self-discipline, mealtimes are a chance to soothe the body and the mind. This introduction gives an outline of both the health and spiritual benefits of shojin food, illustrated in colour with dozens of recipes arranged as Soup, Salads, Tofu and Beans, Vegetables, Potatoes and Rice, and Desserts. In keeping with the Buddhist spirit, no animal products whatsoever are used.

Beautiful, Delicious, Simple, and Elegant 30. März 2006
Von Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, author of The Joy of Vegan Baking and The Vegan Table - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I am lucky enough to live in the San Francisco Bay Area, where "shojin" cuisine (Japanese Buddhist temple cuisine) is served to two wonderful restaurants: Cha Ya and Medicine. I often say "I could live on that cuisine," so when I discovered Fujii's cookbook, I was thrilled. The recipes are so simple but divinely delicious - and of course healthful! Many of the recipes call for only 5 or 7 ingredients, some of which may be unfamiliar at first. But, after your first visit to an Asian grocery or even the Asian aisle of your supermarket, you'll be ready to master this cuisine. As a vegan cooking instructor and a lover of this simple but elegant cuisine, I have prepared many of the dishes in this book and recommend each one as highly as the next. The simplicity is amazing, and the flavors are divine. You'll love this book!

Pour the spirit of heaven and earth into every dish 18. Juni 2006
Von Zack Davisson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Buddhism being a religion of reincarnation, one of the precepts of cloistered monks is to harm "nothing that flees when chased." After all, that might just be your brother or wife from a past life sizzling in your cookpot. However, even those pursuing enlightenment must eat, and even monks like their food to be varied and tasty, so the spiritually pure tradition of "Shojin Ryori" was born.

Shojin Ryori is a vegan cuisine still served today in the temples of Japan, based on seasonal vegetables that can be grown by the monks. Eating food that follows the flow of nature is considered best for the body and soul, and seasoning is kept light so that the natural flavor of the fresh vegetables can be preserved.

Author Mari Fujii learned the arts of shojin ryori from her husband Sotetsu, who was the Tenzo, or temple cook, during his ten years as a monk. Now a priest at a temple in Kamakura, Sotetsu and Fujii teach shojin ryori to all who wish to learn. With "The Enlightened Kitchen," they have brought this wisdom to a wider audience, allowing all to partake of the healthy, natural and delicious style of cooking.

In seven section, including soups, salads, tofu/beans, vegetables, potatoes/rice/grains, and deserts, Fujii has selected easy-to-make dishes using seasonal vegetables that should be easy to find in any grocery store. The recipes are delightfully simple, and you will be amazed that such great food can come from such little effort. She stays with traditional Japanese vegetables, as well as occasionally incorporating rarities such as avocado and celery to mix things up. The base for most of the sauces is sake, miso paste, sesame oil, rice vinegar and lemon. She has substituted maple syrup for mirin, thinking that mirin might be hard to find in the US, but it is easy enough to swap it back. Not all of the recipes are strictly vegan, as Fujii points out that Chinese and Tibetan Shojin Ryori allow for dairy products, although authentic Japanese does not.

Of the dishes I have made, the "Chestnut Tea Rice" was excellent, as were the "Fried Pumpkin with Peanut Sauce," "Tofu Fried with Almonds," "Sweet Potato and Soybeans with Miso/Lemon Sauce" and "Koyadofu Teriyaki." I am looking forward to exploring all of the recipes, and I have no doubt that they will be equally satisfying.

It is said that those who eat Shojin Ryori fell as if a weight has been lifted off their shoulders. In the modern world where so much processed garbage gets shoveled into our bodies, it is a very pleasant feeling to sit down to a meal that is so completely natural.

A cookbook of the traditional fare that has its roots in Japan's Buddhist temples 15. Dezember 2005
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Written by the wife of a Buddhist monk who has taught temple cuisine for over twenty years, The Enlightened Kitchen: Fresh Vegetable Dishes From The Temples Of Japan is a cookbook of the traditional fare that has its roots in Japan's Buddhist temples. Emphasizing natural and healthy ingredients such as fresh seasonal vegetables, and the staples of grains, and tofu, these creations are simple and elegant delights, delicious without undue extravagance. All recipes are animal-free, making The Enlightened Kitchen especially ideal for vegetarians and vegans. Full-color photographs throughout and straightforward instructions clearly show the reader how to prepare such mouth- watering delicacies as Shiitake Mushrooms Stuffed with Tofu, Sushi Rolls (prepared entirely without fish), Buckwheat Crepes, Kenchin Style Vegetable Soup, and much more. Highly recommended.

Misleading title 21. Dezember 2013
Von Dingos Don't Eat Babies - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The title of the book "The Enlightened Kitchen: Fresh Vegetable Dishes from the Temples of Japan" is somewhat misleading. What you certainly won't get in this book are shojin ryori recipes or discussion of temple cooking in Japan. The recipes are very simple vegetable dishes that are a mix of Japanese and western ingredients. It's ideally suited to a vegan that is a beginner cook and looking to try something a bit different. However, I'd recommend browsing through a copy to see if the recipes are what you want or expect before buying.

vegan-friendly Japanese cuisine. 13. November 2012
Von anonymoose - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
When I first leafed through this book after purchase, I was underwhelmed - some of the recipes are very similar to one another, and although filled with beautiful pictures, this too reduces the number of recipes in Enlightened Kitchen. Also, the ingredients are so few, and the preparation methods so simple, that I was doubtful as to how flavorful the dishes could ever really be. After sampling the recipes from this book, however, I was happy to be proved wrong on both counts! I've tried around 8 dishes so far, the standouts for me being the fried tofu with almonds (honestly the best fried tofu I've had anywhere), the walnut dressing (makes any steamed/raw veggies addictive), and the seaweed potato patties (very cute and even better when some onion is added). These recipes are deceptively short and simple - the mix of flavors are perfectly balanced in everything I've tried...I wish I lived near a restaurant that offered this kind of food!
The index is useful as well, and due to the presence of several Asian markets in my area I haven't had any trouble obtaining the right ingredients.
My only qualm (hence the 4 stars) is that I wish there were more tasty recipes in this book - the many pictures are beautiful of course, but not the reason I buy cookbooks.
