Description: Several years ago, spicy food diva Jennifer Trainer Thompson bottled a bit of her passion for intense flavors when she started making her Jump Up and Kiss Me hot sauce. Shortly after, her love affair with fun, fresh, well-spiced food led her to vegetarian cooking. 

Inside Jump Up and Kiss Me, Thompson presents an exhilarating collection of versatile vegetarian recipes that will thrill anyone who loves full-flavored food. While not all the recipes are red-hot, they all feature the savory and piquant flavors of the world's most popular cuisines. 

Recipes for homemade curries, chile powders and other spice mixes, hot sauces, chutneys, and flavored butters, oils, and vinegars allow you to customize the spiciness of each dish. Also included are cooking hints, information about specialty ingredients, serving suggestions, and more. 

Among the nearly 300 recipes you'll find exciting choices like appetizers substantial enough to be a meal, entrees that come together quickly and disappear faster, and sides and drinks that add sparkle to any meal, including: 

  • Curried Vegetable Stew with Tamarind and Coconut Milk 
  • Sweet Potato Fritters with Jerk Sauce 
  • Spinach and Potato Samosas 
  • Polenta Biscuits with Borlotti Bean Salsa 
  • Grilled Portobello Sandwiches with Manchego Cheese 
  • Stuffed Tofu in Lemongrass-Sake Broth with Wild Mushroom Saute 
  • Vietnamese Cabbage Salad with Red Chile-Garlic Dressing 

Whether you're planning a weeknight dinner on the porch, a decadent Sunday brunch, a casual picnic at the beach, or a dinner party to celebrate a special event, Jennifer Trainer Thompson's jazzy vegetarian recipes will capture your imagination and satisfy your craving for vibrant food. Just one bite and your family and friends are sure to jump up and kiss you.
