The number of people choosing meatless meals is on the increase. And a vegan
vegetarian diet -- one without any animal products -- is an unusually healthy
one because it is high in fiber, low in saturated fat, and very nutritious.
"Too many vegan recipes have relied on exotic and difficult-to-find
ingredients or tedious, time-consuming techniques," says Jannequin Bennett,
executive chef of a restaurant in a AAA Five Diamond, Mobile Five Star hotel.
"But Very Vegetarian has recipes made with common foodstuffs that
are uncommonly delicious."

Very Vegetarian is presented by and introduced by 9-time Olympic gold
medal winner Carl Lewis, who says that a vegan diet of fresh fruits and
vegetables, whole complex carbohydrates, high quality proteins, and natural fats
is the best way to ensure a person's health and longevity.

In addition to a wide range of more than 250 mouth-watering recipes, Very
includes a helpful introduction about eating vegan and 16 pages
of beautiful four-color photographs. The book will help the person who is
beginning to choose meatless meals by providing nutritional information and
recipes featuring familiar foods and techniques. For those who have more
experience with a plant-based diet, the book offers recipes that will broaden
their culinary horizons.

    Simply good food, simply prepared, 5 star taste

    Rice - how to cook it several ways and a biscuit made with soy milk served as the basis for me purchasing this book. I have checked it out of the library several times and always hated to turn it back in because the things I was trying to fix by converting standard recipes has already been done here by Executive Chef Bennett.
