Quickies 2, Veggies and More
Easy Ways With Vegetables, Beans & GrainsBook - 1999
This is the fourth title in the bestselling Chatelaine Food Express series, in the easy-to-use format that distinguished the bestselling Quickies. Many people today, for a variety of reasons, are eating a healthier diet, with special attention to lots of vegetables, beans, and grains. In response to this, Monda Rosenberg and Chatelaine magazine, creators of the bestselling Quickies, present a new cookbook: Quickies 2 -- Veggies and More. From appetizers, soups, and side dishes to entrées and wraps, there's something here for everyone, including the vegetarian or almost-vegetarian. Here are more than 300 exciting, easy-to-prepare recipes that deliver loads of flavour in less time than it takes to say quinoa. The A to Z listing of ingredients established in Quickies returns, but with some new additions, including Cornmeal, for fast, easy polenta; Greens, with a slew of recipes ready to jump-start any meal; and Xtras, for such things as parsnips and sugar-snap peas. Popular vegetables, such as Tomatoes and Broccoli, weigh in with more than twenty recipes each. Global flavours are represented in such appealing recipes as Spicy Moroccan Carrot Salad, Three-Pepper Cajun Corn, and Thai Cucumber Salad. For special gatherings, also included are such holiday fare as Zucchini-Carrot Latkes, Dilled Broccoli, and Curried Pumpkin Soup. This is a wonderful addition to the Chatelaine Food Express series, and is sure to please the many fans who bought the first three volumes.
