There are a lot of compelling reasons to eat less meat these days, but the shift to a totally or even
partly vegetarian lifestyle is easier said than done for many beef, poultry, and fish lovers. In Cook without a Book: Meatless Meals, best-selling author Pam Anderson encourages readers to eat meat-free a day or two a week and makes it easy to do so with recipes for simple, fun vegetarian and vegan meals that are made from accessible, wholesome ingredients. To help readers prep their kitchens for meatless cooking, she includes tips and techniques for stocking the pantry and refrigerator. Instead of presenting complicated, inflexible recipes, she lays out blueprints with ingredient options for everything from hearty breakfasts and fun salads and sandwiches to satisfying main courses—so readers can craft a rewarding dish exactly to their personal tastes.

Colorful, comprehensive, and perfect for parents, caretakers, and singles and couples alike, Cook
without a Book: Meatless Meals
will show all aspiring vegetarians that eating a little (or a lot) less meat can be simple, healthy, and totally delicious.

hard to read recipes. wasn't that impressed with it.

My family is trying to eat less meat, and the five recipes we've cooked from this book - pad thai, tortilla soup bar, Asian soup bar, bean burgers, and fried rice - have all been hits. Each master recipe has lots of variations and choices, so you can use ingredients you have on hand (or those your picky eaters will tolerate). Also, each was made in less than 45 minutes, my time limit for weeknight cooking. A good collection of basic recipes.

isn't it interesting that a vegetarian book has photos done by a guy whose last name is bacon?
