It’s 100% Vegan and is Based on Normal, Everyday Ingredients instead of Exotic Oddities
Few grown-up vegans grew up in vegan households. If you’re tired of vegan cookbooks that hinge on peculiar ingredients and seem to think people can live on large helpings of portobello mushrooms and agar agar, you will be delighted with the down-home dishes we prepare every day here on our family farm. Our hearty soups, stews, sandwiches and more will satisfy your craving for real, honest food and will feel familiar to you even if you grew up in a meat-and-potatoes household.
It’s 100% Gluten Free
For those readers who are among the countless people who have received a diagnosis of gluten sensitivity or gluten intolerance, The Vegan Reader Cookbook is gluten-free. Learn to make your own gluten-free tortillas, polenta bread (yay, pizza!) cookies and more. And, even if you’re not on a gluten free diet, these recipes for traditional, whole-grain breads and nut-based cookies will broaden your skills in the kitchen and spark your palette with something new.
It’s 100% Soy Free
Whether you’re allergic to soy or are concerned that your vegan lifestyle has resulted in a too-heavy dependence on soy, you’ll be glad to know that there are no soy-based recipes in this book. Get your protein from a veritable rainbow of inexpensive, delicious of legumes and pulses and don’t miss our amazing recipe for soy-free soy sauce. You won’t believe how dark and tangy it is, and what a cinch to make!
Writing this cookbook has been a labor of love on our farming family’s part. So many readers have asked us if we ever planned to publish our recipes in a single volume, and we sincerely hope the results of our work will bring new dishes to your table, save you money with from-scratch cooking and fill you with pride in the skills you will gain as a provider of food. Nothing could be more important!
