Vegetarian magician Lorna Sass pulls another carrot out of the culinary hat with this book. (Of course it's a carrot--this is a vegan cookbook!) This short and snappy book will wow you with Mushroom Barley Soup that cooks in 15 minutes, an almost instant Chickpea Curry, an inspired Vegetable Paella, Tortilla "Sushi," and more. In addition to the recipes, Sass names specific products useful for making speedy, tasty meals and recommends ingredients to keep in the pantry and freezer so there's always something to work with in the house. To prove that quick, good eating doesn't depend on recipes alone, Sass offers time-saving principles: adapt them and you'll quickly move from needing recipes to easily creating your own. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
In a world awash in cookbooks, many of them vegetarian, this one by an award-winning author of many other cookbooks (e.g., Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure, LJ 8/94) stands out. Handsome and well designed, it offers recipes that are truly quick and easy to prepare without being boring or predictable. All recipes are vegan?no dairy products or eggs are used. Sass begins with "Ten Strategies for Short-Cut Vegetarian Cooking." These include the use of high-quality prepared foods and of "secret" ingredients for intense taste. Following is a section on stocking the pantry, refrigerator, and freezer with staples. Sass stresses the importance of using the right tool for each preparation and cooking task. The 100-plus recipes include preparation times and storage hints. Highly recommended for cookery collections.?Carol Cubberley, Univ. of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg
