An introductory cookbook for healthy eating AND continuing in the vein of her popular "Soy of Cooking" (0471 34705 1, 1996), Marie Oser gives favourite recipes a makeover by substituting alternative ingredients and techniques to replace the high-fat, cholesterol laden, fare normally found in traditional Western cuisine. Adding wholesome goodness and delicious flavour, she revitalizes a variety of dishes for those looking to lighten their diet with non-dairy foods that are low in fat, high in fibre, and 100% cholesterol free. This book makes healthy eating easier with a splendid collection of mouthwatering meat- and dairy-free recipes. It is a companion to "Soy of Cooking:, which includes such treats as Colourful Guacamole, Jungle Curry, and Peach Ice Dream. Vegetarianism and veganism are growing world-wide as more and more people cut meat and dairy products from their diet.
