Cucumber Cilantro Salad Recipe and The Part-Time Vegan Cookbook

Just recently I got the chance to review the cookbook The Part-Time Vegan: 201 yummy Recipes That Put the FUN in Flexitarian by Cherise Grifoni


The Part-Time Vegan: 201 Yummy Recipes that Put the Fun in Flexitarian
In The Part-Time Vegan: 201 Yummy Recipes That Put the Fun in Flexitarian (Adams Media, a division of F+W Media, March 2011) you'll discover how to go vegan without feeling any obligation whatsoever. But a warning: the mouthwatering recipes may have you transitioning to full-time much sooner than you anticipated!

Non-committal? Curious? Or just want to sprinkle a little meatlessness throughout your daily routine? Newbie veggies will find recipes so fresh, colorful and inventive, you won't even miss your meat - while seasoned herbivores will love the new spins put on dips and appetizers, pasta, soups and desserts! 

What's not to love when you're eating:

  • Purely Vegan Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread
  • Lean, Mean, Black Bean Guacamole
  • Very Vegan Potato Pesto Salad
  • Spicy Roasted Tomato Soup
  • Roasted-Garlic Mashed Taters
  • Spanish Artichoke and Zucchini Paella
  • Barley Pilaf with Edamame and Roasted Red Pepper  
Tofu doesn't have to be a four-letter word...and seitan, TVP and tempeh will be your new BFF! No matter why you want to go vegan - whether it's for health, the planet, or some other worthy reason - this cookbook makes sure you have fun in the process!

I planned several recipes from this cookbook. My daugher's asked if we were going "vegan" now that I have this cookbook. I told them no but this cookbook is full of tasty recipes and perfect for summer time lighter meals. So far so good on all of the recipes. Here is one of the first ones we tried. It is very light and refreshing.
