Ojai Valley Vegan Cookbook : Recipes and Tips for Vegan Cooking
If you are looking for tasty, nutritious and creative recipes that support a vegan lifestyle, then this is the book for you. These recipes aren't fancy. They were created to appeal to all without regard to specific diet. If you are not vegan that's OK. This book is for you too! Who would not enjoy my Fresh Gaucamole, Harissa-Spiced Potatoes with Lemon or How to Grill The Perfect Artichoke recipes? These recipes are not only satisfying but also fun and easy to prepare. They feature fresh, home-style cooking with a trend toward comfort food. They will put a smile on your face and make your stomach content. Although all of these recipes are healthy, I find the term healthy to be subjective. I focus on fresh and fun recipes leaving the determination of relative health to you. A word about buying organic. I believe in organic and buy it as often as possible. In the Ojai Valley we have access to an abundance of healthy, nutritious and unmodified fruit, produce, nuts and grains. If you can't find or can't afford organic it's OK to use non-organic ingredients. The recipes work well either way. Here's a bonus: 63 of the 113 vegan recipes are also gluten-free. See the gluten-free recipe index at the end of the book. May you eat well, eat local and eat fresh!

About Randy Graham
I have been a vegetarian since August 1975 and eat local and organic grain, fresh fruit, and vegetables as much as possible. I enjoy cooking for friends and family using ingredients from backyard vegetable and herb gardens. My food is often called vegetarian comfort food. Real food for real people. My column, Chef Randy, is syndicated in California newspapers. My wife, Robin, and I live in Ojai, California with our dog Willow. Robin and Willow are not vegetarians.
