Cooking the Vietnamese Way: Includes New Low-Fat and Vegetarian Recipes (Easy Menu Ethnic Cookbooks)

Because of its warm climate, Vietnam produces an abundance of 
vegetables and fruits. These fresh ingredients are the mainstays of 
Vietnamese cuisine. Unlike other Asian cuisines, the Vietnamese 
serve many uncooked vegetables, often in the form of salads and 
pickles. Many fresh herbs and spices, including basil, mint, corian­
der, ginger, chili peppers, and garlic, give Vietnamese food its dis­
tinctive flavor and add color to many dishes. Lemon grass, a tropical 
grass that looks something like scallions, gives food a unique, 
lemony tang.
