The Thirteen Moons cookbook is a celebration of vegetarian cooking. Containing loads of healthy vegetarian recipes that are as delicious as they are nutritious, each recipe comes with easy-to-follow instructions. Readers appreciate Louise’s easy personal writing style – it’s not intimidating for anyone who is not a “foodie” or in the know with regards to health foods. From sumptuous breakfast ideas like Poached Eggs with Yogurt Hollandaise Sauce (pg 93) to easy recipes that will please the whole family, like Lazy Day Lasagna (pg 181).
Flip the pages, and you’ll discover tantalizing vegetarian recipes inspired by the nature’s bounty. Organized seasonally, each section focuses on fresh, healthy ingredients, whether it’s a springtime Asparagus and Leek Soup (pg 71), the autumnal Pumpkin Muffins (pg 161) –which just happen to have won 1st Prize at the Norwood Fair in the Healthy Choice category–or Wild Rice with Cranberries and Sweet Caramelized Onions (pg. 182) perfect for a cold winter night. And, for dog lovers, let’s not forget Fido, on page 52 you’ll even find a recipe for wheat-free dog treats!
In addition, you’ll get cooking tips and information on adopting a healthy vegetarian diet. Learn about vegetarian sources of protein, and find out which fats are healthy fats and which ones to avoid. For people looking for a wheat-free diet there is a section on wheat substitutes. There is also information on sweeteners and substitutions as well as handy hints on stocking your pantry.
