With a wealth of interesting facts and inspiration, Rose shares the secrets of healthy vegetarian living. She gives essential information on living as a healthy vegetarian or vegan, whether you want to lose weight, feed your baby or start eating well to look younger and live longer. To show how she uses these ideas in her own life, Rose offers 100 of her favourite vegetarian and vegan recipes. Inspired in particular by Mediterranean and Far Eastern cuisine, she combines an abundance of organic vegetables with fresh herbs, exotic spices, beans and grains to produce simple, delicious, energizing dishes. Rose also gives ideas for menu-planning, whether it's for fast, afterwork meals, or celebratory dinner parties. Illustrated with over 40 recipe shots, "Fast, Fresh and Fabulous" should inspire and delight both vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.

What really bugs me is this. We can switch on the television and watch these so called great cooks...( they are usually fat and unhealthy)....showing us how to destroy our health. Why not give Rose her own show....so that she can teach the viewers about nuitrition..and how to cook absolutely delicious food to give us good health and a clear conscience. Rose...you are just wonderful. Please buy this marvellous book. Linda.
ps....try the grain burgers..............can be made in minutes
Maybe I was just unlucky in the few recipes I tried from this book. I was chuffed when the peanut butter noodle things tasted so great. Trouble is, once I'd made them, I realised they were only a side dish. The other recipes I tried were less successful.
The Thai curry was really exiting in theory: great ingredients such as coconut and lemongrass. Absolutely no flavour, though. The bean chili, again, no flavour. Me and my boyfriend decided to add Marmite to it to give it some taste. The lentil cakes with mint raita were the final straw. They were supposed to be sort of pressed into little cakes. Unfortunately, they just disintegrated, blobbing down in paisly-like shapes. They just crumbled after they'd been baked. Useless. And my boyfriend hated them. This book certainly ain't gonna convert meat-eaters, I can tell you.
I wanted what this book promises in it's title: fast, fresh and fabulous. I've got several other recipe books which produce great results, but take ages to prepare and cook. Unfortunately, the recipes in this book take just as long as those other recipes, with the exception that they are dull. Dull, dull, dull.
The section on grains is my favourite. It is a great introduction to the world beyond white Rice and Wheat, with recipes for Quinoa, Millet, Buckwheat and Barley, all combined with fresh veg, as stews, salads, risottos and bakes.
In the dessert section every taste and occasion is catered for. My favourite recipe is the Sparkling Raspberry Jelly, using agar flakes, raspberries and grape juice. Only three ingredients, but very simple, elegant and delicious!
I have to add that I am not a vegetarian, but I think this book is a great way to broaden anyone's horizons. There is so much information and inspiration in this book, that it could change the way you cook for the better, forever.
