Product Description

Food guru Jay Disney is back with an exciting vegetarian cookbook brimming with healthful recipes that make the middle path between indulgence and denial look irresistible.

Jay Disney's holistic approach to food is inspired by the age-old, tried and true philosophy of moderation, making his new cookbook, the follow-up to Let There Be Lite! an invaluable guide to achieving balance and good health through food. He inspires readers to move beyond seeing foods as "good" or "bad" and offers common-sense guidelines to finding happiness and health through diet. He reveals cooking techniques and shortcuts he's developed, gives innovative tips such as how to get a "meaty" taste from vegetables, shows how to make your own fresh pasta and discusses virtually all varieties of grains and legumes-the staples of vegetarian cuisine.

For strict vegans or for life-long carnivores who are curious about exploring the vegetarian lifestyle, The Middle Path is filled with simple and mouth-watering meat-less recipes inspired by cuisines from around the world-an international approach that delighted fans in Let There Be Lite! From French Onion Soup to Cr pes a l'Indienne, from Kyoto Spinach & Carrots to Acorn Squash Genovese, Jay Disney's tasty recipes, favorites from his successful catering company, are both delectable and inspiring.
