Since a vegan diet eliminates all animal products--no meat or fish, of course, but also no eggs, cheese, or milk--it is 100% cholesterol-free. For this reason, many people are attracted to vegan meals for health reasons. Others have philosophical or ecological concerns. The goal of this book is to create memorable dishes that aren't commonly found in vegetarian cookbooks. It's the New Soy approach, but for vegans. Using whole grains, beans, fruits, vegetables, and abundance of herbs and spices, author Lorna Sass shows us a vegan lifestyle that's anything but boring. From Mediterranean Red Lentil Pate to Phyllo Triangles Filled with Kale, Pinenuts, and Currants, The New Vegan Cookbook has a recipe guaranteed to entice anyone - even meat-eaters.
