Good Time Eatin' in Cajun CountryCajun Vegetarian Cooking
By Donna Simon
From the heart of Cajun country, here are over 90 mouthwatering, vegetarian recipes made with traditional Cajun flair.
When the French Acadian settlers of Nova Scotia migrated to Louisiana, they brought with them a zest for life and love of good food. After settling in the rugged bayou country around New Orleans, they began to adapt their diet by incorporating local ingredients. Over the years, this included influences from Spain, Africa, the Caribbean, and Native Americans.
The wonderful flavors and spices of Cajun cooking are now available to vegetarians. Donna Simón shows us how to make delicious vegetarian versions of: Filé Gumbo, Etoufée, Boulettes, Red Beans and Rice, Blackened Tofu, and much, much more.
So pull out the filé and the cayenne, and let the good times roll!
All recipes are egg- and dairy-free.
