I love cookbooks, especially when they are more than just cookbooks. Veganomicon offers not only 250 vegan recipes, but also menus for different occasions, advice on essential cooking equipment, pantry staples, and basic cooking techniques.
Like all beans and legumes, lentils are an excellent source of protein. Unlike the others, lentils do not need to be soaked before cooking. For an easy, healthy, quick meal, try this lentil salad recipe with onions and rosemary.
