Horn of the Moon Cookbook

Ginny Callan, Author Harper Perennial $22.5 (304p) ISBN 978-0-06-055037-0
Callan, owner of the vegetarian Horn of the Moon Cafe in Montpelier, Vt., presents an impressive assortment of the restaurant's eclectic, versatile fare. French toast comes stuffed with ricotta cheese or eggless and with cashews, and there are six options for omelettes and ten for muffins. Greek vegetable pie has a phyllo crust, bechamel sauce replaces traditional tomato sauce in a rich French lasagne, and Mexican and Italian cuisine are well represented. Seasonal soups range from a refreshing, chilled spicy tomato-avocado to a hearty, potato-cheddar. Although her recipes nutritiously utilize whole grain flours and tofu, and favor honey over sugar, Callan offers chocolate as well as carob treats and doesn't avoid cream or coffee. A detailed guide to basic as well as less common ingredients, a generous number of simple appetizers and sandwiches, and illustrations that demonstrate technique will be particularly useful to culinary novices and newcomers to meatless cuisine.
