Delicious Plant-Based Recipes

Zel Allen

This cookbook restores nuts to their rightful place in a balanced diet. More than just a snack or condiment, nuts can be used as the focal point in a variety of dishes. And with almost 150 tasty gourmet recipes here is ample opportunity to include these nutritious powerhouses as a dietary staple. Extensive information about the health benefits of nuts is provided, including studies that prove a lower risk of heart disease. And nuts are an especially good source of essential fatty acids. But a little goes a long way. From sauces, spreads, dressings, and salads, to soups, entrées and desserts, the choices are delightful.

A few recipes to enjoy include:

  • African Peanut Soup
  • Cashew Mushroom Bruschetta
  • Wasabi Pistachio Vegetable Aspic
  • Mango Macadamia Smoothies
  • Hazelnut Cranberry Bread Pudding
  • Chestnut Mousse with Chocolate Truffle

Along with tips on the latest gadgets for cracking nuts and advice that takes the guesswork out of purchasing and storing them, The Nut Gourmet ushers in a new source of pleasurable and healthy dining.
