This publication has taken a middle-of-the-road point of view in regards to vegetarian meals. Although the recipes are based on vegetarian principles , the approach is not a rigid one. Meat is of course not used but many of the recipes use eggs and cheese. The recipes can be used to introduce the family to vegetarianism by using them as an accompaniment to meat or fish dishes. If someone is embarking on vegetarianism as a way of life, it is important to research and understand foods to be sure of a balanced diet. This publication can help with this acquisition of knowledge. The foods which may not be familiar to readers are described in the glossary at the end of the book.There is a section with information about making yoghurt, growing bean sprouts, making peanut butter, mayonnaise, soy milk and cottage cheese. The book is fully illustrated throughout with colour photographs.
