Enjoy all the goo and glory of your favorite cheesy dishes without the cholesterol, animal products, and dairy allergens that can be harmful to your health. Make vegetables come alive with tangy uncheese sauces, and savor the silky smoothness of rich desserts. This brand new, completely revised edition of the popular classic, The Uncheese Cookbook, will help you expand your repertoire of nutritious “comfort” foods.
Vesanto Melina, coauthor of Position of the American Dietetic Association and Dietitians of Canada: Vegetarian diets, brings you up to date on the latest research findings about dairy and health. Tables and charts show calcium, protein, and other nutrients in a variety of plant foods, to help you safely replace dairy in your diet.
Because people can be sensitive to a wide range of food allergens, you’ll find designations with each recipe to indicate whether it is free of gluten, soy, nuts, yeast, and/or corn. Use the handy reference list in the back of the book to locate recipes that fit your dietary needs.
