Product Description

Product Description

Many studies have shown that vegetarians seem to have a lower risk of obesity, coronary heart disease (which causes heart attack), high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, and some forms of cancer. --The American Heart Association

* Featuring 150 delicious recipes, Quick-Fix Vegetarian provides both novice and longtime cooks with practical and robust vegetarian dishes that can be prepared in less time than it takes to have a pizza delivered.

* Written by best-selling vegetarian chef Robin Robertson, Quick-Fix Vegetarian is the answer for busy families who are looking for healthy food, fast.

Quick-Fix Vegetarian by Robin Robertson recently was named Best New Cookbook by PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The international organization's Proggy Award (short for progress) recognizes animal-friendly achievement in 21st century culture and commerce. No longer considered a hippie fad, the vegan lifestyle is becoming going mainstream. In her latest book vegetarian expert Robin Robertson creates recipes such as Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Quesadillas, Chipotle-Kissed Black Bean Soup, Mediterranean Orzo Salad, Beat-the-Clock Lasagna, Five-Minute Slow-Cooker Chili, and No-Bake Oatmeal Almond Cookies for this growing consumer base. In addition, Quick-Fix Vegetarian shows how to use many of the new commercial vegetarian products and includes recipe variations and tips for speedy, stress-free entertaining without sacrificing flavor or mainstream appeal.

4.0 out of 5 stars fast and easy 14 Feb 2013
By mgsluss
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
liked it because it is quick and easy. great for beginner vegetarians/vegans. there is no dairy or butter that i've seen, so it is more for vegans, although vegetarians can easily sub in real cheese, etc. didn't like that it doesn't have any pictures or tabs, so i have to use stickies for my recipes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 24 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book would be perfect for someone living in America whose style of cookery is opening cans and microwaving the contents.

The majority of ingredients are not available in the UK - certainly not in the supermarkets in a small Scottish Highland town - and this alone, I feel, makes the book wholly unsuited for sale in this country. Amazon please note.

But even if the ingredients were on the shelves, I had been looking for a book which might have created a bit more enthusiasm for its subject. In this I was sorely disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed 13 Jan 2012
By grottie
Format:Paperback
Essentially, the 'quick-fix' part is based on pasta, beans, various grains and canned products. The recipes are just about edible, but I didn't feel the need to cook any of them more than once, and the book got donated to charity pretty quickly. If you want a combination of quick and nutritious recipes and pleasant taste, I find that getting a wok and following Ken Hom's recipes gives much better results. An electric wok does the job for me, and even teens living in dorms can use this option.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Robin Robertson Winner! 20 Mar 2007
By Laura F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Robin Robertson is my all-time favorite vegan cookbook author. That is why I rushed right out and bought Quick-Fix Vegetarian. I have already read through the whole cookbook and made several recipes.

Robin's meals are always innovative and delicious, but these recipes have another advantage - they are quick and easy to make. If you love to eat wonderful meals, but don't like to spend hours in the kitchen this book is for you. For example, I made the Polenta and Pinto Bean Pie, it literally took 15 minutes to put together. The Udon Noodles and Baby Bok Choy with Creamy Tahini Sauce was awesome, and took all of 20 minutes to put together. And if you like soup and sandwiches for lunch or dinner, most of them are done in a snap, as are the main-dish salads. There's even a chapter on make-ahead meals that assemble quickly and then get popped in the oven when needed.

For the working person, or just for someone who loves to cook and eat fantastic vegan food without all the fuss and muss, Quick-Fix Vegetarian is the cookbook to own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little work, lots of flavor 23 Nov 2007
By Magda S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Though this book is all over the map (slow-cooker recipes, casseroles, etc.)--are these recipes that are on the table start to finish in 30 minutes, or is hands-on time 30 minutes? There are some in each category. Still, I give this book 5 stars because everything I've made is truly easy and absolutely delicious. The recipes work as stated; no guesswork or tweaking. Robin is friendly, helpful, and informative as an author and cook, and I look forward to making lots more of these tasty and healthy recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Veg or Omnivores on a tight budget alike! 8 Oct 2009
By C. L. Greer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book when I first switched over to vegetarianism in December of 2007. I had done a little research but not much, this book got me through the first month without a problem! I still do eat dairy, however little since I am lactose intolerant, so I find that vegan cookbooks work the best for me. I still go to this cookbook at least once a week to look up little recipes, or even ideas for a different meal I want to make. My pages are torn, covered in food stains and have dog-ears all over the place! Highly recommended for ANYONE, not just vegetarians or vegans. A lot of the meals in this cookbook are good for those who are cooking on a tight budget! I also recommend this to omnivores because it's such a great and easy way to look out of a that "normal" realm of foods that the average person eats. There are bases for meals in here that I grew up having no idea existed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious, Healthy and Fast Vegan Food! 21 Aug 2007
By mosdefjess - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I'm a full time student as well as a full time worker, and after a long day I just don't feel like cooking. The back of this book reads, "vegetarian dishes that can be prepared in less time than it takes to have a pizza delivered," and it is not a lie. I've already made several recipes out of this book, including one for a Quinoa salad that converted me into a Quinoa lover. From Basic Recipes (mushroom gravy, pie crust, etc) to appetizers, entrees and desserts, Robin Robertson makes it easy to never order take-out again.
