Peet, James S (2019) Camino Eats for the Solo Vegan: Easy vegan meals for Peregrinos and other travelers. Bowker. ISBN-13: 978-0999609385 (paperback), ASIN B07R1Z1T13 (Kindle). The Camino is fraught with peril for vegans! A “vegetable salad” includes tuna, and ham is ubiquitous, even in dishes one might consider vegetarian. Designed for the pilgrim interested in cooking for him or herself, the book contains recipes for food that is basic, filling, but also tasty, with numerous permutations for many of the meals. Best of all, most of the ingredients can be bought for a lot less than the price of a similar meal in a restaurant (even less than what you would pay for the menú del peregrino).
