This book has a master templet for many different foods. It begins with breakfast muffins, oatmeals, scones, pancakes and more. A master templet for salads, soups, sandwitches and more. This book is genius!!! I have been vegetarian for 25 years and this books makes it simple to eat well. You dont have to be vegetarian to enjoy good food. This book has grain salads and what I love most is you choose what grains, vegetables (Cooked or raw) , beans. This is so smart.

I would recommend this book to certain others not because I think the recipes are super tasty. In fact, I would say they come out tasting more or less just decent. The real benefit to this book is that it provides a different way of looking at recipes more as template that one can customize to his/her tastes. I think this is beneficial primarily to folks that want to become more confident with their cooking skills. The only real negative thing I can say is that some recipes seem to disregard sodium concerns and add quite a bit of miso (very high in sodium). I'm sure the miso adds flavor but I'm trying to watch my salt.
