Reviews & Endorsements:

In the introduction to How to Eat like a Vegetarian, the authors state that their reason for writing this book is that their friends kept telling them, "We would become vegetarian if you cooked for us." Both writers have been vegetarian for a combined 50-plus years and share numerous helpful ideas, simple recipes, menus, and advice born from experience.Some interesting sections in this book include "Ten Ways to Eat More Vegetables, " "Ten Different Things You Can Do with Chickpeas," and "Steddas," which has recipes substituting for dishes that ordinarily contain animal products. Here you'll find recipes for Tofu Cottage Cheese, Cheezy Sauce, and more. Finally, "Vegetarian Cooking Without Recipes" offers numerous suggestions for non-cooks and busy people. How to Eat like a Vegetarian, Even if You Never Want To Be One will have you out of the kitchen in no time. Be sure to keep an eye out for this great new guide to veg eating. Adams and Breitman have packed all kinds of handy info into a slim volume—perfect for one last beach read. One of the main attractions of the book is a section that covera everything from 10 Things to Do With Flax Seeds to 10 Tips for Making Fast Food. In case you happen to be heading to the beach with someone who isn't totally sold on the veg idea yet, take along a copy and remind him or her just how easy—and delicious—living cruelty-free can be.
