Named One of Delish's 10 Best Cookbooks of 2021

"[Hsiao-Ching Chou's] sole regret about her first cookbook, [Chinese Soul Food], is that she didn’t include more vegetarian recipes. Her second one—Vegetarian Chinese Soul Food—comes right when we could use more vegetables after overdoing the COVID-19 stay-home holidays. [Chou] concentrates on accessible assistance: mostly straightforward recipes, wok-buying advice, a guide to pantry ingredients, a vegetable tutorial and more."
—Seattle Times

"Hsiao-Ching Chou’s new cookbook is an exercise in exceptional approachability."
—Seattle Met magazine

"In this compact book Hsiao-Ching Chou, a Seattle-area cooking instructor who’s particularly popular for her dumpling classes, demonstrates the astonishing diversity and appeal of Chinese vegetarian cooking."
—Kitchen Arts & Letters

"Above all, Vegetarian Chinese Soul Food is another example of the author’s passion for sharing China’s storied cuisine. She’s committed to encouraging people to try their hands at creating exciting home-cooked meals that will leave them satisfied and perhaps a little surprised at their own abilities. Once again Chou proves that any kitchen can be a Chinese kitchen—even a vegetarian one."
—International Examiner

"The beauty of [this] cookbook, and Chinese cooking in general, is that it’s forgiving."
—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
