This is a lifelong compilation of the recipes I’ve created, used and improved over the years. Through these years I’ve transitioned to a happy medium of traditional foods, and nontoxic options. This transitional time included many levels of eating, vegan junk-food to gourmet dishes. These are organized in a way that makes creating a menu or making a meal a fun enjoyable experience. This is the first printing of The All American Vegan Cook Book.
The purpose of this book is to provide relevant and healthy approaches to eating the traditional American foods in a healthier way. Since the 80’s we’ve had a sharp rise in health related conditions, many of which can be blamed on poor eating habits. These recipes combine modern food sciences with healthful cooking techniques that are both easy to prepare and give good results each time. Improved agricultural practices and nutrient dense foods are improving America’s traditional foods. The Kitchen equipment and utensils recommended are there to assure that you receive all the details to get the same uniform results with minimum effort. Detailed instructions and preparation methods are included with each recipe.
A new desire has evolved in our quest for tasty food. America craves more than just flavor, we want health, beauty, and energy from our food as well as the traditional flavors we were raised with. Herbs and spices are used to add their nutritive properties and flavor to each dish. I am in love with many dishes from other countries as well, so these are incorporated in this book as well and adapted to our basic American style cuisine. Nowadays, it’s important that everyone in the family cooks, or has the direction to cook at will. It’s an asset to know how to cook and this book also provides the detailed directions that make it possible for all levels of chef to follow. My personal nutrition education, and being a nutrition educator has taught me that the meals, daily food intake, and weekly amounts of food vary, and it must all be balanced as well as tasteful.
I use kitchen gadgets and equipment to get the job done quickly, but if you don’t have a tool there’s always the old fashion way of doing things still. Equipment helps to make preparation pass quickly and provides a sense of play while preparing the food. Cooking is also a wonderful creative artisan endeavor that reflects the time, season, and year. It is a skill that will be shared time and time again as the season and situation fits.
An encyclopedic of information has been incorporated into this cook book. Some of the information you will learn includes meal prepping ahead of time, cost-effective shopping tips, care and sanitation of the kitchen, etiquette table setting and serving, fermenting, and food preserving. You’ll learn a lot of ideas for specific meal preparations including picnicking, potlucks, mono-meals, child lunches, and party planning. This book also helps you prepare to have a dinner party of your own. I’ve included menus and recipes for as many of these special interests as I can think of including camping, celebrations, and vacations.
This book is for all cooks, from beginner to expert, who want to know the fundamentals of cookery and mastery skills of the kitchen. This is a fun adventure of sharing and gratitude that I hope will appeal to you. These recipes have been time-tested, and some are recipes I use very regularly. From my family collection to your home I give you this book to treasure for years to come, or gift the beginning cook for success in the kitchen.
