Eat Ting is not a diet book. Rather, it will make you fall in love with timeless African flavours – while also improving your health and wellbeing.
Mpho Tshukudu and Anna Trapido offer healthy eating solutions based on traditional southern African food, and modern versions of time honoured favourites. From gluten-free sorghum flapjacks to salads featuring low-GI, ancient grains, this book is all about great-tasting South African superfoods. Find out how to cook foraged traditional greens and explore new takes on nose-to-tail eating. How about a modernised tshidzimba with oven-roasted tomatoes? Or an updated inhloko with spiced pumpkin salad? Perhaps a comforting bowl of classic mofokotso? It’s all here, plus many more innovative, delicious dishes that are very good for you too.
