Comments: Considering the amount of toast, cold cereal, and muffins consumed in this country each day, breakfast is surely the easiest meal to make vegetarian. And Mollie Katzen, dean of the vegetarian cookbook authors, has taken good advantage of that. While this is not promoted as a vegetarian cookbook, none of the 350+ recipes include meat.
Still, the recipes take in all the standard dishes scrambled eggs, buttermilk pancakes, home fries, etc. but also range as far afield as Tempeh Hash, Savory Rosemary-Olive Waffles with Peas, Bittersweet Mocha Coffee Cake, Homemade Protein Bars, and many, many other innovative dishes that we have never tried.
Besides the recipes, the book is packed with helpful hints, cooking tidbits, and food information a great resource for beginners as well as more experienced cooks. The illustrations by Katzen are charming.
