Book Meets Bland Claims Head-On with Flavoursome Recipes

Article excerpt

VEGANISM, vegetarianism, gluten-free, soy-free; the list of special diets is endless these days.

Helping to break through the confusion, new cook book Veganissimo! is informative and easy to read.

It explains the principles behind the growing trend of veganism. It is not only a healthful eating choice, but also a total lifestyle belief system.

Vegans choose to avoid consuming all-animal-based foods, including dairy products, gelatine (honey) and eggs. They also abstain from using animal-based items, such as leather, silk, wool, and any personal and household products that contain animal by-products or are tested on animals.

This vegan handbook is not just a collection of delicious recipes. It is a bible for those wishing to adopt this form of lifestyle. It contains informative pieces about the building blocks of this diet, and nutritional requirements and considerations when adopting it.

The pages are full of glorious recipes, including a chocolate torte, amazing burgers, lasagnes, tagines, hot pots, curries, and even ice-cream.

The recipes are far from stodgy or bland, and will have even the most voracious meat eater visiting the vegetable aisle in search of fresh ingredients to make these amazing recipes.
