Now that millions of Americans are exploring the vegan lifestyle, award-winning cookbook author Lorna Sass has updated her classic cookbook to reveal that achieving great flavor and eating healthy meals don’t require spending hours in the kitchen.
Sass creates culinary magic from a pantry stocked with carefully selected prepared and instant foods, such as homemade curry powder, roasted red peppers, spicy salsas and mustard sauces, and roasted garlic oil. A splash of orange juice, a touch of cinnamon, and a few sliced leeks quickly transform handy frozen spinach and a can of highest-quality lentils into an exotic Orange-Scented Lentil Ragout that will satisfy the most sophisticated palates.
The Short-Cut Vegan appears to be a re-issued book. I am glad that HarperCollins has decided to make it available as this book is a little gem. The only thing I miss in this book were the pictures. There are no pictures of the “end result” which, for someone with my limited gifts in cooking, could use as a handy guideline to make sure that what I am making looks remotely like its suppose to!
This is a book that can grow with you – as your taste bud’s change, your cooking style matures or needs to get trimmed down, and as you continue to learn more about your health. Lorna goes over how to stock and store the healthiest of staples giving building blocks of a healthy diet. This is valuable to any diet whether meat is added or not, and is presented in a straight forward and understanding way so anyone can do it.
