If you're here, you probably already know why it's good to go veg or vegan and eat healthy. And you want to enjoy delicious healthy food. But there's that little matter of cooking.
Savvy Vegetarian Cooking is meant to help you eat healthy, delicious vegetarian or vegan food, without spending all your time chained to the stove, busting your budget trying to feed yourself, or hassling with the non-vegetarians in your life.
When I went vegetarian in the sixties, I had a hard time cooking vegetarian food, because I had only the vaguest idea what to cook, or how to cook - never mind nutrition! I ate lots of cheese, bread, brown rice, potatoes, lentils - a very heavy, brown diet.
