1,000 Vegetarian Recipes Have you been searching for a collection of delicious vegetarian recipes? What about easy-to-prepare vegetarian recipes, or those that are healthful? Then 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes is the book for you—no other vegetarian cookbook comes even close. Author Carol Gelles has spent years creating recipes for a variety of tastes and needs, whether you're a beginner vegetarian, long-time vegetarian, or someone trying to eat meatless meals just a couple of times each week for better health. If you're a vegan (a vegetarian who doesn't eat eggs or dairy products), you've probably been frustrated in the past by vegetarian cookbooks that don't address your needs. Again, no other cookbook offers you as many choices as 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes, with hundreds of vegan recipes throughout (all clearly marked with a "V" at the tops of the recipes). And many of the lacto-ovo vegetarian recipes include vegan variations. You probably already know that the vegetarian lifestyle is a healthy one, but if you're looking specifically for low-fat recipes, those dishes are specially marked with a "healthy heart" symbol for easy reference. In addition to the 1,000 recipes, Gelles offers a bounty of information on vegetarian food, including cooking charts for beans and grains; shopping lists for stocking the vegetarian pantry; a glossary of ingredients; a lesson on the health benefits of a meatless diet; and menu-planning advice, with menu suggestions for every taste—Chinese, French, Mexican, Indian, and more. Whether you already own a dozen vegetarian cookbooks, or this will be your first, 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes is the one cookbook a vegetarian can't do without. A Few of the Delicious Meatless Recipes

Whether you're a lacto-ovo vegetarian or a vegan (or even if you're a part-time vegetarian, eating meatless meals just a couple of times each week), no other cookbook can compare to 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes. If you've been searching for healthy, easy, and delicious meatless recipes, this is the book for you. "Addressing the needs of the beginner, the part-timer, and the fully committed vegetarian, this cookbook is a must-have…" —Cooking Light Magazine "Actually several cookbooks in one, this encyclopedic volume has it all—good basics for the aspiring vegetarian, innovative recipes that will appeal to long-time ardent vegetarians, and plenty for everyone in between." — New York Daily News Visit Hungry Minds, Inc. online at www.hungryminds.com

Synopsis:

The award-winning cookbook that's not just for vegetarians

Carol Gelles, one of the best-known authorities on the subject, offers hundreds of appetizers, entrees, soups, salads, and more, proving that vegetarian cuisine is anything but boring. The flavor combinations are limitless, drawing on the ingredients and spices from every international cuisine. Discussions of vegetables, grains, beans, and soyfoods are interspersed throughout the recipes, making the book easy enough for beginners to follow. And every recipe is coded as lacto-vegetarian (some dairy products), ovo-vegetarian (some egg products), or vegan (made without dairy or meat products).
