15-Minute Vegan Meals offers speedy meals that check all the boxes, for the perfect weeknight meal. Even if you’re low on time and energy, Janet Gronnow’s creative approach shows how to pack plant-based protein and healthy fats into your dinners, to give you the flavours you want and the nutrition you need. The recipes include:
- Buffalo Tempeh with Vegan Honey Mustard
- Sun-Dried Tomato Alfredo Penne with Broccoli
- Buffalo Mushroom Flatbread
- Angel Hair with Basil-Parsley Pesto
- Sweet & Sour Tofu Broccoli Stir-fry
These 15-minute vegan recipe books are ideal, if you are not feeling well, busy, or don’t like cooking. There is a time and place for slow-cooking, but sometimes you just want to get in and out of the kitchen fast, and these books offer heaps of inspiration, using everyday ingredients that you can find in most grocery stores. They are also ideal for people who are not natural cooks, are on a small budget or don’t have access to complicated ingredients or swanky health stores. Find them in your local indie bookstore or order online (we link to Blackwell’s, rather than you-know-who!)
