"Loved this book. There were tons of fresh ideas. Books like
this make being vegetarian fun. I'm vegan, but found the
recipes could be veganized easily, and the Whelans gives hints on
how to do this. All of the recipes I've tried have been
delicious, and I couldn't be happier with this book." --
FROM THE INTRODUCTION:
Every adult vegetarian who was raised a carnivore has at least
one childhood comfort meal they still pine for… For me, the dish I
have shed the most tears missing over the years has unquestionably
been my Mom's amazing tuna potato-stick casserole. I don't know if
she found the recipe on a soup can, or invented it herself, but it
was in every way a decadent delight to the senses.
While most moms were serving up healthy tuna dishes with egg
noodles and peas, mine went straight for the junk food jugular -
nothing healthy here, just palate-pleasing, salty joy! No pasty
noodles, no peas glaring greenily up from your plate, just heaven
in a mound of smooshy-crunchy wonderment…
You can tell I loved the stuff. Since going vegetarian, I have
lived three full decades deprived of that succulent goodness...
Until now, that is! I have at last perfected a 100% vegetarian
Mock Tuna potato stick casserole recipe that not only captures the
flavor and texture of Mom's original, it's super easy to make!
But even better, the "Mock Tuna" at the core of this amazing
1970's comfort food "remake" has proven an extraordinary
vegetarian tuna-replacement in a huge variety of recipes - Mock
Tuna sandwiches, salads, burgers, melts, pasta dishes, and even
that classic Chinese restaurant appetizer, Crab Rangoon (Mock Tuna
The cookbook you now hold in your hands is the fruit of many
months of my own playful kitchen experimentation, assisted every
step of the way by the able culinary talents of my wife, Carol Ann.
Together, I think we have created something special.
If you're an adult vegetarian who still longs for the
tuna-based comfort foods of your youth, your wait is over. You can
now indulge your cravings without concern - no animals were harmed
in the making of any recipe in this book!
