Healthy Homestyle Meals in 30 Minutes or Less
by Robin Robertson
Andrews McMeel Universal Publishing
Following on the success of Quick-Fix Vegetarian, Robin Robertson's Quick-Fix Vegan offers a fast and easy solution for those who just don't have enough time to put a healthy, home–cooked meal on the table. There are 150 brand new, never before published, vegan recipes ranging from starters, snacks, salads, sauces, and sandwiches to stovetop suppers, pastas, soups, and desserts that can all be prepared in 30 minutes or less. Quick-Fix Vegan also features "Make-Ahead Bakes" – convenient recipes that are assembled ahead of time (in less than 30 minutes) and then baked before serving.
Quick-Fix Vegan draws upon a myriad of ethnic influences including French, Mexican, Moroccan, Mediterranean, Greek, Cajun, East Asian, Italian, and Middle Eastern, and features recipes such as Spicy Black Bean Hummus with Orange, Korean Hotpot, Rotini with Creamy Avocado-Herb Sauce, and Moroccan-Spiced Pumpkin Soup.
An introductory chapter provides the reader with basic information on how to maintain a "quick-fix" vegan kitchen including pantry suggestions and kitchen tips, as well as basic recipes for ingredients such as homemade vegetable stock and seitan. Cooks of all skill levels will find that the recipes inside Quick-Fix Vegan are just as delectable and adaptable to the omnivore, as they are essential to the vegan lifestyle.
