I am not a vegan, but do eat a lot of vegan and vegetarian meals, often going days without eating meat or dairy. But, it can be tough--I like meat and cheese. So, I am always searching for GOOD vegan recipes that will satisfy the chef in me. (I used to work as a chef; still love to cook.)

The Conscious Cook by Chef Tal Ronnen, is inspiring. There are nice photographs and it has a good, easy to read layout.

Ronnen shares his favorite foods, vegan restaurants and other tips. The recipes are imaginative and look great.

It's the substitutions for meat and dairy that are particularly enticing. Take cashew cream, for example--it can replace heavy cream. (Darn it--my husband is allergic!)

Another cool substitution is oyster mushrooms for seafood.

I made the Gardein "chicken" Piccata last night with Focaccia with caramelized onions and the braised kale. Ronnen's friend developed the Gardein faux chicken and it's really good. The texture is really close the the real thing, but it is made with veggies and soy. All three recipes were very good.

I intend to make many more of thr recipes...and who knows--maybe I'll end up a vegan!
