Cookbook Review: *Quick-Fix Vegan*

Posted Jul 28 2013 5:17pm
 
Quick-Fix Vegan by Robin Robertson - I was initially attracted to this title because of the "quick." I do generally like to cook, but sometimes it is nice to have something easy to make and be done with. This book has a nice assortment of creative recipes from a variety of different influences. It's not just a boring rehash of the same old thing. I haven't yet tried any of these recipes, but I'm curious to find out how fast they really are. 

At the beginning of the book she has some recipes for things like homemade vegetable broth and pizza dough, with the idea that those are things that can be made ahead. I feel like that's a little out of place, since this isn't a make-ahead cookbook; it's a quick one. Still, those things would be easy to purchase pre-made. Some of the recipes use hard to find or expensive ingredients, but as a whole, I like the variety of this book.

I look forward to trying the Quick Vegetable and Quinoa Soup, Ginger Sesame Seitan with Spicy Basil Snow Peas, Jambalaya Bake, and Chesapeake Chickpea Sandwiches. There are also some recipes for easy desserts (which include items such as Stovetop Fruit Crisp and Tiramisu Parfaits), which is a nice touch.

The book is pretty no-fuss--there aren't any photographs (except two on the back cover), lengthy descriptions, or elaborate tips--but I think that kind of fits with the style and content. It's straight-forward and easy to read, and for hurried weeknights that might be just what is needed. 

Disclaimer: I received this cookbook free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated in any other way and all thoughts expressed are my own. Please note that I have not read this book cover-to-cover.
