A vegetarian cookbook and reference resource for many North American and Asian sea vegetables. Written by Maine Coast Sea Vegetables founder Shep Erhart and talented natural gourmet cook Leslie Cerier. In it you will find historical, botanical, medicinal, and nutritional information, combined with culinary guidelines and accessible recipes (each with a Nutrition Facts breakdown). Learn how to easily introduce seaweed into your every-day cooking — breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even snacks.
Full of tips for how to include the health benefits of sea veggies in your own diet and that of your family — even how to nourish your skin and hair, your houseplants and garden, your pets and farm animals. A number of full color photographs, line drawings, diagrams, and nutritional charts complement the 105 carefully laid out vegetarian and mostly vegan recipes. This 163-page book is of interest to both new and long-time sea veggie eaters.
