PRESS OF EATON ft CO.. SAN JOSE. CAL.
T the present time, when there is such a general
demand for meatless recipes, it seems good to
offer to the public a Cook Book compiled from
recipes by practical cooks who for many years
have made a study of meatless dishes.
For more than twenty years there has been
an increasing tendency toward the eating of less meat, especially
among those who have become interested in the new spiritual
movements which lead the mind away from the materialistic view
of life. When a change to a meatless diet is contemplated, the
average housewife is at a loss to know what to cook. This prob-
lem has been satisfactorily solved. Nearly one hundred recipes
will be found under "Meat Substitutes and Entrees," the result
of the experience of those who have for many years successfully
maintained a meatless diet. When properly prepared, these
dishes will fully take the place of the meat course. They will be
found to be both appetizing and nutritious. After becoming ac-
customed to this new diet the average person will not willingly
return to the old.
In one of the sanitoriums, or rest homes, which have come
forth in the development of modern Christian healing, a practi-
cally meatless diet has been maintained for several years. Nu-
merous recipes were originated in the course of the work. The
demand for these recipes from the guests at the House of Rest
in San Jose, California, was the inspiration for a printed Cook
Book. In developing the idea numerous sources were drawn
upon, for the most part housewives and a number of the Cali-
fornia Homes of Truth, in which the art of cooking without
meat has long been practiced.
The first idea was to publish a Cook Book to supply the de-
mand among Truth Students, but when the country found it
necessary to conserve the food supply and meat substitutes be-
came a necessity at every table in the land, the plan was broad-
ened to include not only Truth students but all who might be in-
terested in a MODERN MEATLESS COOK BOOK. Helpful
suggestions to housewives who wish to comply with the require-
ments of the Conservation Committee concerning the making oi
bread without the exclusive use of white flour have also been
We thank the friends who have so willingly contributed
their choicest recipes for this Cook Book.
Brosia Meals are of three varieties. Bean Brosia, Pease
Brosia, and Lentil Brosia. They are made by steam cooking the
beans, pease or lentils, freeing them from hulls and grinding.
They are rich in protein. While beefsteak contains 20.3% of
protein, Lentil Brosia contains 25.7%, Bean Brosia 22.5%, and
Pease Brosia 24.6%. One pound of the meal is equal to two of
the lentils, pease or beans. Brosia Meals may be obtained from
The House of Rest, 236 N. 6th St., San Jose, Cal.
Vegex is a pure vegetable extract having a distinctive and
delicious flavor. It is manufactured abroad, and was brought to
this country by a prominent vegetarian. Vegex has been analyzed
by Professor Allyn of Westfield Board of Health; a sample is
taken from each importation and analyzed by the United States
Pure Food Department. Vegex is made in the form of a dark
brown paste but contains no artificial coloring. It is put up in
screw-top jars of convenient size and will keep practically any
length of time. In many of the recipes in this book Vegex is
given as a flavoring for soups, sauces, gravies and stews. May
be obtained from local grocer.
VEGETARIAN SOUP STOCK
A great variety of palatable and nutritious soups may be
made without meat by using as a foundation the water in which
rice, macaroni, or vegetables have been cooked. The water from
carrots, turnips and spinach is not suitable for this purpose, but
may be used for flavoring. Much depends upon the ingenuity
of the cook in combining left over tidbits. The seasoning of the
soup is an important part, for a change in seasoning lends variety
to otherwise plain soups. There are several excellent vegetable
extracts, such as Vegex and Kitchen Bouquet. Vegex is used
in many of the recipes in this book and is treated in a separate
2 MODERN MEATLESS COOK BOOK
article. Seasoning such as bay leaf, thyme, celery salt, poultry
seasoning, and onion salt should be kept on hand. It is best,
however, not to use more than two or three of these at one time.
Olive oil is an addition to soups made with water, but care must
be taken to boil it well into the soup. Brosia meals, which are
also mentioned in a separate article, are excellent for vegetarian

and keep very hot, without boiling, for forty-five minutes. At

erate fire and bring to a gentle boil for several minutes. Slide
to back of stove as before, placing asbestos mat under it. Let

JUST A WORD ABOUT PRUNES
The right prunes cooked right are delicious. They are
more than fruit ; they make the best breakfast food in the world.
Santa Clara Valley residents, of all communities, have absolute-
ly the best deciduous green fruits, berries and melons at their
command; yet a large proportion eat prunes with cream every
morning in the year. In pies, cakes, souffles, and fifty other
ways, primes make a tooth-some article of diet. A cook book
from Santa Clara Valley would be incomplete without a prune
BABY'S EVENING MEAL

to pulp a couple of tablespoons of cream. Serve with a slice of
toasted whole wheat bread or unsweetened graham or other
wafer and a glass of milk.

Cover a quart of prunes with boiling water and bring to a
boil quickly in a covered kettle. Boil steadily for twenty min-
utes. Then remove cover and simmer till about one-half cup
of liquid is left. Add lemon juice to flavor and simmer a little
longer. Turn the contents of the kettle on a large granite pie
plate ; it should hold the prunes in one compact layer ; cover with
another plate and bake in a moderate oven until nearly all the
juice has disappeared. Turn each prune with the tine of a fork
and return uncovered to a slow oven, if too hot the door may
be left open. Allow to remain a few minutes until they are
glossy but not dry. The prunes should be rather firm when done
but not hard, care being taken not to blister them. Put away in
a covered dish and serve with cream or crisp walnuts.
EDEN VALE PRUNE WHIP
1 pint stewed prunes 6 egg whites
Ys pint thick cream Raspberry or loganberry
Drain prunes thoroughly, pit them and rub through col-
ander; avoid rubbing the skins through as much as possible.
Beat the whites of eggs to a stiff froth; then by degrees beat
this into sifted prunes. If not sweet enough to suit taste, add
a tablespoon of sugar. The delicacy of this dish depends large-
ly upon the thoroughness with which the ingredients are beat-
en together. When well beaten, pour into glass dish. Whip
cream and spread evenly over top of pudding. Then fleck the
whipped cream with bits of jelly. Serve with cream or if pre-
ferred with a custard made from the yolks of six eggs.

a knife. Mix them thoroughly into the milk, soda and mo-
lasses. Add dry ingredients, which have been mixed together;
beat well. Bake in two or three round loaves in moderate oven
about forty minutes, watching carefully towards the last as it
burns easily. The bread is improved by baking in small heavy
earthenware pudding dishes or in small steel skillets.

Remove pits from prunes and chop fine. Add whites of
eggs and sugar beaten to a stiff froth. Mix well, turn into a
buttered dish and bake thirty minutes in a moderate oven.
Serve with whipped cream.
STEWED PRUNES NO. 1
Cleanse thoroughly, soak in water ten or twelve hours,
adding a little granulated sugar when putting to soak ; for al-
though the fruit is sweet enough, experience has shown that the
added sugar changes by chemical process into fruit sugar and
brings out better the flavor of the fruit. After soaking, the
fruit will assume its full size, and is ready to be "simmered"
on back of stove. Do not "boil" prunes, that is what "spoils"
prunes. Simmer only. Keep lid on. Shake gently, do not stir.
When tender are ready for table. Serve cold. Added just be-
fore simmering, a little sliced lemon or orange gives a rich col-
or and flavor to syrup.
STEWED PRUNES NO. 2

is cool, drain, cover two inches above top of prunes with hot
water, bring quickly to a boil. Set on back of stove and sim-
mer till water is boiled down about one-half. When soft, add

Steam until the fruit is swollen to its original size and is
tender. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and squeeze lemon juice

of cinnamon if desired. Bake and then cover with meringue
made of white of two eggs beaten stiff, add three tablespoons
sugar; brown in oven. Delicious with whipped cream instead
Wash choice prunes several times in boiling water. Steam
half an hour or until pliable. Remove pits with the point of a
sharp paring knife. Stuff with walnut kernels and roll in pow-
Stuffed prunes are more delicious when eaten the same day
as the walnuts soon lose their crispness, owing to the moisture
of the prunes.

Mate, or Paraguay Tea, consists of the dried leaves of an
evergreen shrub or small tree which grows in Paraguay and
southern Brazil. It appears to have been used from time im-
memorial by the Indians, but first cultivated by the Jesuits. The
names Jesuit's tea, tea of the Missions, St. Bartholomew's tea,
etc., have been applied to it. Since the beginning of the 17th
century Mate has been used by all classes in Paraguay and is
now used throughout Brazil and neighboring countries. It contains
definitely less caffeine, as prepared for drinking, than tea or
coffee, and is also less astringent, making it a more desirable
beverage. It is usually carried by the Sanitarium Health Food
Store, 1176 Market Street, San Francisco.

Left-over bread, toast or biscuits should be thoroughly
dried in warm oven, put through grinder and placed in glass
jars. No bread need be wasted, as there are many uses for it
