Eating vegan doesn’t have to be hard. These days, home cooks are seeking out simple recipes that unite hearty, satisfying taste with the perks of vegan food–it’s healthy, fresh, economical, lactose-free, ethical, and environmentally sustainable. Omnivorous chef Devra Gartenstein accidentally fell into the vegan world more than ten years ago, and she stuck around for the benefits to her body, her tastebuds, and the world around her. Never one to fuss in the kitchen, Devra has packed this new edition of her pioneering cookbook with more than 180 basic-ingredient, quick-instruction, maximum-flavor recipes. With appetizers, soups, mains, sides, and desserts inspired by Indian, Thai, Chinese, Middle Eastern, Mexican, Greek, and Italian cuisines, THE ACCIDENTAL VEGAN is sure to have vegans and nonvegans alike clamoring for more.
Vegetarian and ethnic dishes have made their way into mainstream American kitchens. From Thai noodles to Greek tahini sauce, these recipes are easy to create and require little prep time. Gartenstein offers ideas about low-fat cooking, how to shop for exotic ingredients, and healthy ingredient substitutions.
DEVRA GARTENSTEIN owns and runs the Patty Pan Grill, a vegetarian-vegan restaurant and take-out counter in Seattle, Washington. She is also a farmers’ market vendor who can be found at local markets almost every day during the summer.
“Eat low on the food chain in high style with this eclectic collection of simply sophisticated recipes from Devra Gartenstein. Please your palate and spare the planet in one fell swoop–or one swell soup!”—Kerry Trueman, cofounder of Eating Liberally“Just as you don’t have to be Italian to love pasta, you don’t need to be vegan to enjoy these recipes.” —Taste for Life
