Favourite recipes from a seasoned vegetarian who has learnt through trial and error. Mellissa Bushby is not a trained chef, but her passion for food, and for living life mindfully, is evident throughout the book. For many nonvegetarians, the thought of giving up meat is a step too far, but Fresh from the Vegetarian Kitchen will tempt even the most dedicated meat-eater to try meat-free Mondays . Mellissa presents food that sustains and nourishes both body and soul, with a selection of recipes that are perfect for family meals as well as entertaining. Through the pages, we imagine that mealtimes at the Bushby s yield a table groaning with garden-fresh salads, healthy main dishes, home-made breads and bakes, and luscious desserts.
