Who says your weeknight meal has to be limited to baked chicken with white rice and steamed broccoli? With Weeknight Wonders by registered dietician and Food Network chef Ellie Krieger, you can wake up your boring after-work meals in 30 minutes or less. Yes, healthy and flavorful Savory Red Lentil, Quinoa, and Vegetable Stew can be on the table in 30 minutes. Krieger puts a healthy spin on traditional favorites, like Shotgun Wedding Soup using ground turkey or chicken instead of meatballs, and sloppy Joes prepared with sautéed mushrooms in place of beef. One vegetarian recipe curiously called for Canadian bacon and another included chicken broth; hopefully those are corrected in the final version (review based on the ARC). Nevertheless, the cookbook is a good addition to the home cook’s collection, complete with full color photographs throughout, nutritional information for each recipe, and a pantry list to get you started making wholesome appetizing meals. With creative salads, hearty soups, and a variety of meat, poultry, seafood, and vegetarian dishes to suit most any palate, Weeknight Wonders offers a delicious and nutritious way to start the New Year.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
