Ruby Cooperabout this book: For those who have adopted a vegan regimen, author Ruby Cooper offers fifty vegan sandwiches that utilize whole grains and minimize carbohydrates, and include vegan protein sources (vegetables, legumes, beans, and nuts). Some sandwiches use all raw ingredients, and some involve some baking or grilling. The recipes use a variety of herbs and spices to jazz up the taste. Most, but not all, of the sandwiches have accompanying color photos of the ready-to-eat sandwich.
This is true vegan food - no dairy products (cheese, butter, eggs, etc.) are used. I would miss cheese most of all, but I have to say that some of the sandwiches are very appealing. I was surprised to see one of my own favorites - a radish sandwich - but it looks even more tasty than the ones that I make. The Roasted Tomato sandwich is one that I definitely want to try. Using roasted cherry tomatoes, it's a very simple sandwich to make, but it looks yummy.
There's something for just about everyone here, even carnivores. The only thing I miss is nutritional information (calories, fat, protein, carbohydrates, and fiber), but with sandwiches that have the home chef's choice of sandwich size and bread types, it would be difficult to standardize that.
First of all, the title of this book makes it clear that this book is for someone who is on a vegan diet. You also don't have a lot of time on your hands, nor are you interested in anything complicated. You've made a lifestyle choice, and you are a busy person. That is the "niche" market you represent, if anyone can deliver.
You are seeking to inform yourself about what is available above and beyond what can be found on Google or Wikipedia. As you know, protein is very important, since you have to ensure this biological need is met in your diet. Without a doubt, author Ruby Cooper delivers an informative book, sharing an enormous variety of sandwiches.
The sandwiches use whole grains and minimize carbohydrates, and include vegan protein sources (vegetables, legumes, beans, and nuts). Now, personally, I am not on a vegan diet, but even I can see that the sandwiches are visually attractive, quick and easy to make, and you have enough variety to go seven weeks without eating the same sandwich twice. Highly recommended.
