Juana Manahan Yupangco launches second recipe book on healthy meals

Renowned cookbook author Juana Manahan-Yupangco challenges misconceptions about vegetarian cuisine in her latest book, “Juana’s Table: Cooking with Filipino Vegetables.”

She showcased the versatility of local vegetables at the book launch, emphasizing that they can create delicious and budget-friendly dishes.

One standout recipe is the Kadyos Salad, where Juana used a creamy dressing made from soft tofu, lemon juice, capers, and Dijon mustard to make it appealing even to non-vegetarians.

Juana’s advocacy for healthy eating began when her husband was diagnosed with high cholesterol. This inspired her to establish Mesa ni Misis, which promotes affordable and nutritious meals using local vegetables, ANC reported.

The cookbook includes innovative recipes like Ginataang Mustasa Rolls and plant-based versions of Filipino classics. It also offers practical tips and debunks nutrition myths.

“Juana’s Table” is available at Fully Booked for P1,295, making it accessible for anyone looking to explore tasty and budget-friendly Filipino vegetarian cuisine.
