Book Review: More Quick Fix Vegan by Robin Robertson

morequickfixvegancoverAs a health coach, I meet a lot of people who say they don’t know what to cook. Either they just don’t know how to throw together a vegan meal, they’re too tired after a long day at the office, or they just don’t have the time to cook a balanced meal. I usually give those clients a copy of Robin Robertson’s cookbook Quick-Fix Vegan, which is chock-full of vegan recipes that take 30 minutes or less to make. Luckily, Robin has just released a sequel of sorts – More Quick-Fix Vegan  so I have even more gift options for my clients.

 

 

 

General Tso's TofuAs the name implies, More Quick-Fix Vegan is full of healthy and delicious recipes that come together in a flash. Since I had abdominal surgery is March, For about a month I was living off of Chipotle veggie bowls and Amy’s frozen dinners, but I’m feeling better and I’ve been able to start cooking again, but I can’t stand in the kitchen for too long. More Quick Fix-Vegan has been a lifesaver, because I’ve been able to prepare creative meals that don’t take too long to prepare, and there’s been a wide variety in what I’ve made. Lemon Dijon Pasta Shells, Spicy Ginger-Lime Portobellos and Broccoli, General Tso’s Broccoli, Stroganoff-Inspired Pasta and Polenta with Kale and Cremini Mushrooms have all been on the menu – and they’ve all been way better than take-out or frozen dinners!

    I love vegan cookbooks — in fact, I’m writing one now! I usually cook without books or recipes, but it’s lovely to see what other vegan cooks are doing!
