Introduction Karen Bukolt has been a vegetarian since 1992. A native of Buffalo, NY, the birthplace of chicken wings and beef-on-weck, the beginning was quite challenging. There was only one store where she could find tofu, on Elmwood Ave. (a hike for most suburban Buffalonians). Thank goodness views toward vegetarianism have changed and eating healthy and responsibly no longer means having to scour the ends of the health to find the ingredients you need. When she moved to San Francisco, Karen discovered there was more to being vegetarian than tofu. Through the years of experiencing the West Coast’s vegetarian delights and experimenting in her own kitchen to find healthy and delicious meals that would satisfy the most discriminating of her carnivorous friends, her knowledge of vegetarian substitutions and healthy living has continued to grow. With her passion for cooking and baking, she has created a bounty of vegetarian dishes that she would like to share with you. Karen enjoys taking meat dishes and making them vegetarian. The meals are satisfying, flavorful, and easy to prepare.
