My Vegetarian Cookbook
Posted by Tao Watts at 05/18/2009
Costa Rican Vegetarian Cookbook from the Osa Peninsula
“Every Day an Adventure and Every Meal a Feast” is the product of over 25 years of cooking experience, inventing and collecting recipes and philosophies about food, the environment, health and the inter-relatedness of it all.
The author, Tao Watts, has been a long time resident of Costa Rica and the Osa Peninsula and uses many of the fruits and vegetables and other products that are readily available here for dishes that are fresh, wholesome, tasty, and eco-friendly.
This collection of recipes is meat free and includes many that are vegan as well. It presents delicious and easy desserts, appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, sides, and baked goods. Some of the terms are written in Spanglish, and features a glossary/dictionary of terms in the appendix. Tidbits of wisdom and quotes supporting the vegetarian choice are scattered throughout its 176 pages.
“Every Day an Adventure and Every Meal a Feast is a reflection on the lifestyle of the Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the programs of Women of the Osa, a volunteer organization in which the author plays an active role with conservation, education and environmental awareness.
Books Retail for $18 each.

"The Easy Vegan" by Janet Hudson, Hampton Roads, 2012. With 440 great recipes, it's one of the best among scores of cookbooks I've owned since stepping away from eating flesh in '75.
