More Quick-Fix Vegan
This vegan cookbook is nothing like the popular high-end-designed cookbooks of today that are filled with stunning photography and plenty of fluff. More Quick-Fix Vegan is simple, basic trade paperback, written for real cooks without bells and whistles, and it is excellent. Robin Robertson claims “30 minutes or less,” and in most recipes this is realistic though a beginner cook needs to scramble. Besides, such short prep time assumes cans, packages and frozen items. Robertson gives scratch alternatives but then the prep time easily doubles (like roasted peppers in jar vs. roasting yourself; canned beans vs. your own). Some one-hundred-and-fifty recipes are widely varied and are very good. She also includes a chapter for even quicker meals provided your pantry is fully stocked. She includes plenty of alternate ingredient suggestions. Recipe writing and layout are great, one recipe per page. The book has a few monochrome photos but basically it’s a simple, un-illustrated no-nonsense cookbook for serious vegan cooks. You do need a nearby health food store, a blender and a food processor. For optimum flavor, in many recipes the list of ingredients is substantial and a beginner cook would likely be intimidated. The index is well cross-referenced.
