Author(s): Anna Thomas
In Vegan Vegetarian Omnivore, Anna Thomas teaches cooks how to begin with delicious vegan and vegetarian recipes that everyone can eat and expand them with dairy, meat and seafood in easy variations. French lentil and farro pilaf with grilled ratatouille makes a beautiful vegan summer supper with lamb chops for the omnivores. Easy fish soup begins as a robust vegetable soup but fish can be added five minutes before serving. For dessert, have vegan gingerbread and add vanilla ice cream. With recipes and menus inspired by the vibrant produce of farmers' markets, Anna welcomes all eaters to her table-where hospitality is universal.
Thomas' recipes are brilliant because they allow for creativity without sacrificing flavour or taste. Whether you have family members with different diets or you want to provide options for a dinner party, there is something for everyone. You will be surprised by how often you use this cookbook.
