Book Description

March 30 2011

More and more people are choosing to eat less meat. It is estimated that 30 to 40 percent of the population of the United States and Canada is flexitarian. But what is a flexitarian? Is it a vegetarian who occasionally eats meat, or is it a "mindful meat eater" who occasionally seeks out vegetarian meals? The answer is they're both flexitarians. So, how do you cook for one?

And then there are those households that include unwavering meat lovers and committed vegetarians: your son has decided to become vegetarian, and you're learning to cook for the whole family. Or perhaps you're entertaining both meat-eating and vegetarian dinner guests and you don't want to make two completely separate meals. Or you've been thinking about reducing your meat intake, but never at the expense of a delicious, satisfying meal.

With Everyday Flexitarian, Nettie and Pat will give you recipes that can be easily adjusted to please every person at your table. The main dishes can be tailored for both the vegetarian and meat eater, with instructions on when to separate the vegetarian portions, when to add the meat or fish, or what to add instead of meat to retain healthy protein levels. This is the perfect guide for creating a tolerant kitchen and embracing responsible consumption.

Recipes include (with the optional meat in italics)-
o Wild and Brown Rice Soup with Three Kinds of Mushroom and Braised Cod
o Buddha Dragon Bowl with Lemongrass and Bacon-Broiled Scallops
o Penne with Chicken, Chickpeas, Spinach, and Roasted Asparagus -and plenty of recipes for beverages, desserts, marinades, and sauces too!

Excerpt The ancients did it, Einstein recommended it, and David Suzuki supports it. The trend of eating less meat is centuries old, but for many North Americans it is a new trend and way of life. Every year more and more people move toward a healthier, plant-based diet. There is no doubt that the earth and its inhabitants fare better when meat is not a priority at dinner (or at lunch or breakfast, for that matter). And yet for some body types, it is not medically advisable to eliminate meat completely; responsible consumption of small amounts of organic beef, lamb, chicken, and fish may be beneficial for them. What we see evolving is a flexible way of thinking about food, cooking it, and serving it to family and friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars great book with delicious recipes Dec 3 2011
So far I have only tried 5 of the recipes, 4 of which were great. I varied between all veggie to some meat. What I liked most about the book is that the meat is an option, and included are instructions on how to make the optional meat part into the recipe. That's very unique to a cookbook. I also liked the fact that there were few recipes with tofu in the ingredients, because no one in my family likes tofu. What I liked least was that some of the recipes used ingredients I wouldn't normally eat in savoury meals such as currants, adzuki beans and tempeh. For the most part, the ingredients were what I would normally have in the cupboard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kept me from going back to meat! Jan. 16 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I purchased this cookbook, I was at my wits end with trying to figure out how to feed myself and my husband (a meat eater) without having to give up my day job and spend the whole day in the kitchen! I really didn't know how to make flexible meals being a relatively new vegetarian. I've tried 6-10 recipes from this book so far and both my husband and I enjoyed them all thoroughly and have added them to our normal rotation. It's also changed the way I think about preparing our meals...meat has a "condiment" or side in these tasty recipes has satisfied us both!
