Plum: Gratifying Vegan Dishes from Seattle's Plum Bistro, Makini Howell

Just because a recipe is "Vegan" Does NOT Mean it is "Healthy", and this book proves exactly that by the use of Soy & Canola oil, both proliferate GMO food products and it is my belief that in this day & age, there is no reason to use those products, at least not if you want to eat "Healthy" So minus 2 stars

Okey Dokey..... The book is printed on dull matte finish paper, photographs are enticing but few. Recipe titles are in a large bold font with an Gluten Free/Soy Free indication, the paragraph beneath the title which describes the recipe is in a medium bold font and is easy to read. The list of ingredients is on the outside frame of the recipe are in a small bold font and the instruction are in a plain font and have run on sentences.....

Contents: Recipe list; Foreword; Introduction; 9 chapters of recipes; Afterword; Acknowledgments; and Index

At the beginning of each chapter is the list of recipes , which has been repeated from the "Recipe List" so there is a redundancy.......
