The Heirloom Meatless Recipes Project (BATCH 1) Welcome to a project to preserve traditional plant-based recipes from around the world and the stories of people who created them. Recipes using minimally-processed, healthy ingredients with few or no animal products are especially sought. Why? Because these best represent what most people ate before Westernized, fast-food. This survey takes four minutes to follow and collects one recipe. The link may be used repeatedly. There are spaces also to tell about the cooks. Here is a sample completed form: 1.) Recipe name, your name and description: Mary´s Akkra funfun. Wendy Lee Hermance, American non-fiction writer and former cafe owner. 2.) Categories for your recipe: Appetizer, Salad, Side Dish3.)

Drain on a paper towel. Serve hot. Serves six. 6.) Name of cook, if known.
