Introduction

So you''re a vegetarian. Or you''re thinking about it. Or maybe you live with a vegetarian.

But you don''t want to eat only weird food. Or spend all day cooking it. Congratulations, you''ve come to the right place.

The Clueless Vegetarian is designed for vegetarians who love good food cooked from scratch but who also want to have a life. This book is filled with simple recipes for just about everything you might ever want to eat and a few things you wouldn''t touch with a 10-foot pole. You''ll find recipes for lasagna and chili and burritos. There are curries and casseroles. There are hearty soups and satisfying snacks. There are even some truly decadent desserts.

There are, of course, also recipes for tofu, tempeh and textured vegetable protein (TVP). Because you should know about this stuff. Really.

If you''re just switching to a vegetarian diet, The Clueless Vegetarian gives you the straightforward nutritional information you need to help you make good food choices--without obsessing over it. There are hints for concocting vegetarian versions of some of your favorite dishes and suggestions for preparing meals for the mixed household. You''ll even find survival tips and cooking advice that''s just plain useful for anyone, vegetarian or not.

Now let''s start with the basics, shall we? We''ll save the tempeh for later. It''s best to work up to these things gradually.
