With the latest headlines concerning the hidden dangers of many foods, a vegan diet—one that avoids all meat, fish, poultry, dairy products, and animal by-products—provides a safe and healthy alternative. In Fresh and Fast Vegan Pleasures, Amanda Grant uses a wonderful variety of vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains, fresh herbs, sea vegetables, and exotic spices to create delectable dishes that will delight everyone already eating a vegetarian diet and tempt those who have heretofore resisted exploring vegan cooking. Divided into five sections, the 145 flavorful and easy-to-prepare recipes cover appetizers, salads, main dishes, desserts, and much more, including Vegetable Crisps, Fresh Ginger and Basil Pasta, Four-Onion Croustades, Spanish Potato Gratin, Tomato and Basil Risotto, Homemade Pizza, Chocolate Raspberry Hazelnut Cake, and Orange and Passionfruit Sorbet. Cook's tips are featured throughout the book, along with basic cupboard ingredients.
