The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen
by Donna Klein
HPBooks, ISBN 1-55788-359-9
Meat-free, egg-free, dairy-free dishes from the healthiest region under the sun
When scientists began to make the connection between diet and disease, there was one region that stood out as a stronghold of healthful eating: the Mediterranean. After years of research, an international conference backed the Mediterranean diet as the best for overall good health - and the exciting news was that it tasted great, too.
Now you can take the tour yourself, with this unique Mediterranean vegan cookbook - also ideal for vegetarians, those with a lactose intolerance, and anyone who wants to make gloriously delicious dishes without meat, eggs, or dairy. With no need for tofu, soymilk, or other substitutes, you can create...
