I borrowed this book from my local library in the hopes of finding low-fat vegetarian meals that weren't too far off the conventional track. Having both gall stones and a weight problem require me to watch my fat intake, but all too often fat-free receipes are dull. Not so with these. Even my meat-eating husband enjoyed the various bean, vegetable and grain meals. One of our favorites was a stuffed pepper with black bean sauce. We served it with some steamed veggies and followed it with the fat-free carrot cake which was dense and delicious. Preparation time for most of the recipes is not too long, though some are too complicated to think about after a day at the office. Try this one. It's well worth the investment.
