IntroductionPlant life can be very enticing It is visual tactile aromatic and mysterious Plant foods range from jewel like beans with their stripes and patterns to subtle grains strangely beautiful seaweeds the aromas of herbs and spices and of course fruits and vegetables with their many forms and colors No less amazing is the ingenuity of man made foods coils of pasta cheeses of all manner the lustrous hues and fragrances of oils It was this edible circus that started me cooking and its still there to suggest a recipe a meal a menu or an excuse for a gathering But the idea for Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone came to me after teaching a weeklong cooking class at Esalen Institute in California many years ago When it ended I realized that it would be so helpful to have a big book like the Joy of Cooking that included all kinds of plant foods between its covers a real soup to nuts kind of book At that time vegetarian cooking was something from the fringe and some foods like soy milk for example were downright obscure and could be purchased only at tiny health food stores I wondered why some foods had to be hiddencouldnt they be brought forward and included as ingredients along with other foods in one place As it turned out they could For some time now once obscure foods have filled our supermarkets shelvestheyre even found at gas stations and convenience stores Today in terms of food the world looks very different than it did when I began writing Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone More than years have passed since Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone first came out and those foods that were once scarcely known are now everyday items and new ones have appeared In addition our knowledge about what makes up the foods we eat has deepened and some foods that were once viewed in such a positive way are now regardeddubiously Soy for example is not uite the star we once thought it was and today the emphasis has shifted to fermented soy not thecommon forms as important More people today feel that organically grown foods are better for ones health and indeed many foods we never thought would be grown and produced without pesticides like sugar are available as organics Butter isnt always bad Olive oil is mostly good but still not really regulated canola oil not so much Genetically modified organisms GMOs are a bigger problem for us today as they have proliferated and are still unlabeled We were not eating kale salads at all during the seven years when I was writing Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone now theyre everywhere Coconut oil was still considered a harmful saturated fat Now its considered a good fat and a very delicious one too Plus we are now cooking with coconut water curry leaves and kefir lime leaves Multiple types of seasoning salts were not on our radar now theyre part of our pantries The pressure cooker wasfeared then than appreciated today pressure cookers are safe popular and used with ease Changes in the culture of food have indeed taken place and many new ingredients are ours for the using In this edition of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone you will find nearly all of the recipes you have come to love But you will also find over new ones and information on new ingredients we have come to know Another inspiration for writing Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone came from the uestions my students asked uestions that revealed when they were at a loss in the kitchen They helped me understand that acuiring food sense and knowledge of how food works is what allows a person to move about the kitchen free of anxiety and full of happy anticipation The recipes are there to articulate that know how give confidence and provide a structure for intuitive cooking Today hundreds of emails from readers tell me that this has proven to be a friendly useable guide for those learning to cook as well as those who already know their way around the kitchen whether or not the user is vegetarian Many readers have begun letters and emails to me by saying Im not vegetarian butCopies of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone have been given as.

Wedding and graduation gifts and hauled off to foreign lands by people on extended trips I have seen utterly destroyed copies in restaurants and monasteries books with stained swollen and warped pages Young people have learned to cook from it and so have their parents who have found themselves at a loss as to how to cook for a child who suddenly will not eat meat To thousands it has introduced new flavors techniues and the pleasure of being able to cook ones own food with good results I still use it myself As its title suggests Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone was not intended only for vegetarians although they would be happy to know that all of these recipes reuire no adjustments Ive always seen this as a book for anyone who wants to includevegetables and other plant based foods in their meals isnt that everyone as a resource for those who wish to have meatless meals as a change from their usual dietmeatless Mondays have since become popularand I wanted it to serve as a guide for those cooking for another who for whatever reason has needed to assume aplant based diet In this edition of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone I have also flagged the many vegan recipes so that they would stand out clearly for vegan cooks Most vegetarians include eggs and dairy among the foods they eat Vegans do not There are Jewish vegetarians who apply Talmudic uestioning to eating meat in regard to the inhumane treatment of most livestock animals a uestion raised by many others as well andso today than ever There are also those who call themselves vegetarians but eat fish and chicken which is something Ive never uite understood There are full time and part time vegetarians occasional vegetarians sometimes called flexitarians and lapsed vegetarians And there are honest omnivores who happen to like a lot of vegetables and other plant foods in their lives including plenty of vegetarian meals And there are locavores I place myself in the last two groups Most of the time I happily make a meal from what others place on the side of their plate without even thinking of it as vegetarian The reason I place myself among the omnivore locavores is because my food concerns are based on such issues as the variety of the plant or animal Im eating how it is raised where it comes from if its a GMO product did it live in a concentrated animal feeding operation CAFO or was it free to range I live in the American West My neighbors are ranchers I grow vegetables We trade with one another thereby mostly eating foods that come from within a few miles of our homes Local and organic driven cooking and eating speak to a world where food and politics collide on a daily basis and where political action such as voicing protest when the standards for organics are threatened or fighting for the labeling of GMOs is as necessary as breathing if we want to make sound informed choices about the foods we eat Regardless of what we cook nothing isimportant than starting with ingredients that are of the best uality we can manage both for the way they nourish us and our environment and because our results in the kitchen will never be better than the ingredients we start with The advantage of using good ingredients is that they allow us to cook simply and eat well And because our efforts in the kitchen today are so hard won we want to be sure that the meals we make will add enjoyment to our lives and nourish us well Vegetarians have often used the phrase I dont eat anything with a face to describe their food choices as plant based But there is another interpretation of that phrase food with a face The Japanese have a word for it teikkai which refers to the provenance of a foodwhere it comes from how it was raised who grew it It is the opposite of general foods those faceless foods that come to us anonymously from a vague somewhere foods without soul During the past years we have continued to reconnect with our foods through shopping at farmers markets participating in CSAs and cultivating our own gardens Connecting to our foods directly enriches our lives by link.
