The Vegetarian Cook's Bible
The Vegetarian Cook's Bible
Paperback      ISBN: 0778801535

250 delicious vegetarian recipes plus information on the health benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle.

We choose a vegetarian lifestyle for various reasons, and perhaps one of the most significant is that a plant-based diet is healthful. Many current studies show that the fiber, minerals and other nutrients found in such foods play an important role in preventing disease.

This cookbook offers up a vegetarian diet that is rich, varied, healthful and delicious. The recipes call for an interesting range of food choices and are often both budget friendly and spontaneous.

In The Vegetarian Cook's Bible, good taste and good health go hand in hand. For example:

  • Warm mushrooms with goat cheese is a recipe that ties in with research showing how shiitake mushrooms bolster the immune system.
  • The author explains that cruciferous vegetables protect against colon cancer-and provides a recipe for a hearty stuffed braised cabbage with potatoes.
  • A special section addresses seven body systems and suggests prescriptive meals and beneficial dietary and lifestyle changes.

In The Vegetarian Cook's Bible, imaginative recipes and comprehensive, up-to-date information highlight the benefits of vegetarian cooking.

Author Frances Boyte and her new book, Tofu Gourmet Cuisine, will take you for a savory journey...

Your metabolism will reward you for including tofu in your diet, with a higher energy level and healthier appearance. Frances Boyte asked five respected chefs to create gourmet recipes mixing tofu with meat, fish and even foie gras for those with a flair for cooking and a health-conscious attitude. Those talented chefs are: Marie-Chantal Lepage who was named Canadian National Chef of the Year in 2000, making her the first woman to ever receive this honor; Eric Boutin, chef at the prestigious Laurie Raphael in Quebec City; Sebastien Leblond, chef at the well-renowned Le Maizerets in Quebec City; Benoit Paquet, chef and teacher at Ciat's Quebec cooking school and Jose Trottier, chef and teacher at Montreal's Calixa-Lavallee cooking school.
