Flavors of the Southwest:  Vegetarian Style By Robert Oser

Southwestern cooking is much more than the Americanization of Mexican foods. Based on a fusion of Spanish and Native American ingredients and cooking methods, new ingredients and dishes were brought over by immigrants at the turn of the century resulting in a unique regional cuisine known for its bold flavors and festive presentation.  Today, a new generation of southwestern chefs are expanding the definition of Southwest cuisine, using vegetarian foods such as tofu and tempeh instead of meat, as well as incorporating shiitake and portobello mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, and balsamic vinegar for other traditional ingredients.  A few of the recipes to enjoy are: Rattlesnake Chili, Pineapple Salsa, Southwest Potato Salad, Plantanos Fritos, Roasted Corn & Chili Corn Brad, Vegan Mole, Seitan Strips with Ancho Chili Sauce, Baked Polenta with Black Beans & Lime Sour Cream, Southwest Potato Fritatas and Shiitake and Sun-dried Tomato Quesadillas.  Page Count: 192;  Width: 7 inches; Height: 8 inches; Format: Softcover;  Publication Year: 1998 Price: $12.95

OS - THE ART OF AMERICAN INDIAN COOKING
By Kimball & Anderson The Art of American Indian Cooking is a sensuous journey of color, scent, and flavor through five North American regions. Using the bounty in ingredients available - such as avocados, sweet or Idaho potatoes, pineapples, pumpkins, wild game, and seafood, the American Indian first combined these gifts of the earth into what many of us now consider to be traditional American cooking. Offering such delicacies as Zuni green chili stew and roast pheasant stuffed with grapes and nuts, plus simple favorites such as baked acorn squash with honey and Chippewa wild rice, The Art of American Indian Cooking presents some of the best-loved dishes our continent has to impart. Adapted for modern kitchens, these recipes are as inspired today as they were at their inception, reflecting the terrain, climate, and culture from which they emerged. Edited by Audubon Magazine Lyons & Burford Publishers, N.Y. 1965. Edition: 5th Printing. 215pp.
