Quick-Fix Vegan

Quick-Fix Vegan

In light of the recent restaurant news regarding Stewart & Heidi Woodman's new healthy-eating, vegetarian and vegan restaurant, it seems apropos that we share this cookbook that recently hit Dara's desk.

Quick-Fix Vegan: healthy, homestyle meals in 30 minutes or less is written by Robin Robertson, best-selling author of Quick-Fix Vegetarian. This 25-year veteran has 19 cookbooks to her name, and has contributed to numerous healthy eating magazines, like Cooking Light, Vegetarian Times, and Better Nutrition.

If you're a busy vegan or simply hoping to incorporate more plant-based meals into your diet, this book is for you. Find quick, easy recipes for all courses—salad, soups, pasta, and more.

Enter to win a copy by sharing in the comments below what vegetable you use most during our long Minnesota winter, and your favorite way to serve that vegetable.

I use mixed greens and romaine for a quick winter citrus salad - combine sectioned citrus like naval oranges or blood oranges, red onion sliced thin, croutons, and vinegrette dressing.

Kale & yams. I love making spicy kale chips.

I use butternut squash more than any other vegetable. I love it roasted and tossed in curries but I think my butternut squash bisque (vegan!) is the most popular rendition.

We use dinosaur kale the most. Chop it up and sauté in a little olive oil, garlic, salt & pepper. Squeeze in a little fresh lemon juice at the end. And for a special treat, add pine nuts and/or parmesan cheese.

I definitely use butternut squash constantly. Risotto, vegan macaroni and cheese, soup, hashes, and more! It fills me up & is comfort food while still being full of vitamins.
