A vegetarian classic originally published over ten years ago, "Vegan Vegetarian Cooking" offers all-vegan recipes for everyone from the beginner to the cooking enthusiast. It makes a great starter cookbook for young vegetarians, acquainting the reader with a variety of fresh whole foods. Longtime vegetarians enjoy its unique gourmet recipes. Most ingredients lists are short and include a healthy selection of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and other whole foods easily found in any grocery store. Recipes are free of meat, dairy products, eggs, and refined sugar. None of the recipes include soy. (Click here for the book's corrections page.)
Think Green - Vegan and vegetarian diets are better for the environment than a meat-based diet. It's the earth-friendly choice!
Holiday recipes - "Vegan Vegetarian Cooking" includes vegan recipes for Thanksgiving dinner, such as a baked chick pea loaf to replace the turkey, bread stuffing with a colorful spice blend, fresh cranberry sauce, and a pumpkin pie sweetened with yams instead of refined sugar. The pie's crust is made with olive oil, rich in Omega-9 fatty acids (a heart-healthy fat), instead of trans fats!
