The next few recipes are from a big, fat cookbook that would be
several volumes if they had not used the somewhat unappealing format
in which the recipes are presented. The book is pretty no frills,
with little background given for the dishes. Almost everything that
I've tried from the book has been good, though. Here we get into
some hard- core, no-fooling Chinese vegetarian recipes. The book has
a lot of vegetarian stuff in it, as well as recipes tailored for
diabetics and those with ulcer problems. It's actually pretty easy
to use once you get used to the odd format.

shredded bamboo shoots D. 2 teaspoons light soy sauce E. 1/2 teaspoon
