KLIATTBeing a vegetarian is no longer the oddity it once was. (I've been a vegetarian for almost 30 years, and believe me, it's more mainstream now.) Being a vegan, however, is just catching on and it's harder to find tasty vegan recipes. This book helps to provide just such recipes. A vegan diet has no animal products, so recipes cannot use such mainstays (especially for vegetarians) as eggs, milk, and cheese. It requires serious changes, so this book does a real service by handling basics: breakfast foods, baked goods, sauces and toppings, salads, soups, dips, main courses, and desserts. There is a section, cooking notes, which describe basics such as methods of soaking beans, toasting nuts and seeds, cooking grains. There is a handy glossary that describes ingredients most people may not know about: Kamut flour, miso, flax oil, chipotle hot sauce. This is a good resource, filled with interesting recipes, and useful for those just venturing into the whole vegan way of cooking and eating.
