Fans of 2011’s “Quick-Fix Vegan: Healthy, Homestyle Meals in 30 Minutes or Less,” by best-selling author/chef Robin Robertson, will be delighted to know that Robertson’s newly-released “More Quick-Fix Vegan: Simple, Delicious Recipes in 30 Minutes or Less” is bursting with the same kind of wholesome, flavor-packed “fast food” recipes that made “Quick-Fix Vegan” so successful. This all-new collection of diverse recipes, many of them ethnically inspired, makes it easy to find a wide-range of vegan dishes that include starters, soups and salads, as well as sandwiches, entrées, desserts and more. There’s also a chapter on “Big Bowls,” one of Robertson’s favorites, that is comprised of complete, balanced recipes for one-dish meals, such as “Sweet Potato Barbecue Bowls” crafted, of course, to be eaten in a big bowl. If you are not vegan, but cooking for someone who is, you’ll especially find the introductory chapter on the basics – and beyond – invaluable. Longtime vegans, always on the hunt for fresh, innovative vegan dishes, will devour Robertson’s timesaving recipes, as will those new to the lifestyle. While vegetarians are classified as a group who do not eat meat, vegans observe the strictest of rules by not consuming any animal products, such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy, as well as some other foods, like honey. Besides reasons relating to health, others choose to be vegan due, in part, to religious, moral and ethical issues, such as those surrounding animal rights and the environment. Look for Robertson’s cookbooks wherever books on cooking are sold, via on-line sources such as www.amazon.com and by visiting the author’s website at www.robinrobertson.com, where more delicious vegan recipes can be found.
