Soy to the World! At last the soybean comes of age. In The Complete Soy Cookbook, Paulette Mitchell, veteran cooking teacher and author of the popular 15-Minute Gourmet series, proves that you can have your health and great taste too! Soybeans and the products made from them-tofu, tempeh, soy milk, and soy flour-are the perfect, tasty additions to the diets of discerning eaters. It is no secret that soy's health benefits are vast: Soy has been shown to fight and prevent cancer, lower cholesterol, and relieve the symptoms of menopause. What has never before been so clear, however, is that foods made from the soybean can be delicious. They go well with every kind of flavoring-herbs, spices, vibrant marinades-and, when prepared according to Paulette's inspired recipes, are suited to every occasion, from quick weekday meals to elegant entertaining. Here are recipes that gourmet palates will love. From appetizers, such as Roasted Red Pepper Hummus; to soups, such as Curried Corn and Pepper Chowder; salads, like Two-Bean Salad in Walnut Vinaigrette; entrees, including Spicy Cashew Stir-Fry and Vegetable Tartlets with Herbed Tomato Sauce; even such desserts as Lemon Mousse and Caramel Custard, these are recipes you will want to prepare for their superb taste. These 170 exciting new vegetarian recipes prove that cooking for good health means eating for great taste.
