Book Description

Many studies have shown that vegetarians seem to have a lower risk of obesity, coronary heart disease (which causes heart attack), high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, and some forms of cancer. --The American Heart Association

* Featuring 150 delicious recipes, Quick-Fix Vegetarian provides both novice and longtime cooks with practical and robust vegetarian dishes that can be prepared in less time than it takes to have a pizza delivered.

* Written by best-selling vegetarian chef Robin Robertson, Quick-Fix Vegetarian is the answer for busy families who are looking for healthy food, fast.

Quick-Fix Vegetarian by Robin Robertson recently was named Best New Cookbook by PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The international organization's Proggy Award (short for progress) recognizes animal-friendly achievement in 21st century culture and commerce. No longer considered a hippie fad, the vegan lifestyle is becoming going mainstream. In her latest book vegetarian expert Robin Robertson creates recipes such as Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Quesadillas, Chipotle-Kissed Black Bean Soup, Mediterranean Orzo Salad, Beat-the-Clock Lasagna, Five-Minute Slow-Cooker Chili, and No-Bake Oatmeal Almond Cookies for this growing consumer base. In addition, Quick-Fix Vegetarian shows how to use many of the new commercial vegetarian products and includes recipe variations and tips for speedy, stress-free entertaining without sacrificing flavor or mainstream appeal.

Editorial Reviews


"Busy parents, college students with a flair for cooking or anyone who likes nutritious and flavorful meals with minimum fuss should invest in Quick-Fix Vegetarian. Thank you, Robin Robertson." -- VegNews

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Robin Robertson Winner! March 20, 2007
Robin Robertson is my all-time favorite vegan cookbook author. That is why I rushed right out and bought Quick-Fix Vegetarian. I have already read through the whole cookbook and made several recipes.

Robin's meals are always innovative and delicious, but these recipes have another advantage - they are quick and easy to make. If you love to eat wonderful meals, but don't like to spend hours in the kitchen this book is for you. For example, I made the Polenta and Pinto Bean Pie, it literally took 15 minutes to put together. The Udon Noodles and Baby Bok Choy with Creamy Tahini Sauce was awesome, and took all of 20 minutes to put together. And if you like soup and sandwiches for lunch or dinner, most of them are done in a snap, as are the main-dish salads. There's even a chapter on make-ahead meals that assemble quickly and then get popped in the oven when needed.

For the working person, or just for someone who loves to cook and eat fantastic vegan food without all the fuss and muss, Quick-Fix Vegetarian is the cookbook to own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little work, lots of flavor November 22, 2007
Though this book is all over the map (slow-cooker recipes, casseroles, etc.)--are these recipes that are on the table start to finish in 30 minutes, or is hands-on time 30 minutes? There are some in each category. Still, I give this book 5 stars because everything I've made is truly easy and absolutely delicious. The recipes work as stated; no guesswork or tweaking. Robin is friendly, helpful, and informative as an author and cook, and I look forward to making lots more of these tasty and healthy recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Veg or Omnivores on a tight budget alike! October 8, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book when I first switched over to vegetarianism in December of 2007. I had done a little research but not much, this book got me through the first month without a problem! I still do eat dairy, however little since I am lactose intolerant, so I find that vegan cookbooks work the best for me. I still go to this cookbook at least once a week to look up little recipes, or even ideas for a different meal I want to make. My pages are torn, covered in food stains and have dog-ears all over the place! Highly recommended for ANYONE, not just vegetarians or vegans. A lot of the meals in this cookbook are good for those who are cooking on a tight budget! I also recommend this to omnivores because it's such a great and easy way to look out of a that "normal" realm of foods that the average person eats. There are bases for meals in here that I grew up having no idea existed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious, Healthy and Fast Vegan Food! August 21, 2007
I'm a full time student as well as a full time worker, and after a long day I just don't feel like cooking. The back of this book reads, "vegetarian dishes that can be prepared in less time than it takes to have a pizza delivered," and it is not a lie. I've already made several recipes out of this book, including one for a Quinoa salad that converted me into a Quinoa lover. From Basic Recipes (mushroom gravy, pie crust, etc) to appetizers, entrees and desserts, Robin Robertson makes it easy to never order take-out again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Cookbook I've ever bought February 22, 2009
By Kristy
I read the 1 and 2 star reviews for this book and I understand why they did not like the cookbook. First of all, there aren't any pictures. Secondly, it is a book for vegans and not for vegetarians. That being said.... quit complaining about superficial things! These meals are so easy to cook and delicious that I find I don't miss the pictures at all. Also, even though this cookbook is for vegans, some of the recipes call for soy cheese. Just use regular cheese. If you're a vegetarian, you should know how to modify dishes. My fiance is a meat eater and I'm able to modify ALL the dishes for him. This is a great cookbook! And none of the recipes take me more than 30 minutes to make.

5.0 out of 5 stars My new favorite cookbook August 21, 2009
By Kiwi
I love this cookbook. Everything I have made out of it has been easy and very tasty. I've actually gone out and bought more copies for friends. There's a big variety of recipes, from quick salads to slow cooker recipes. I hadn't used my slow cooker in years, but this book inspired me to start again, with the 5 minute chili recipe, which I could throw together in the morning when I really only had 5 minutes. Most of the recipes are vegan, but I was surprised that I didn't miss the dairy products. Some of the recipes, to make them fast, use premade ingredients, like mushroom gravy, frozen pierogis, or a jar of salsa, so this book is not for purists who want to cook everything from scratch.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite May 15, 2009
By Sandy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If I had been able to check this out at the library, I wouldn't have bought it. Vegetarian 5-Ingredient Gourmet by Nava Atlas is much better (for me) and I've made many more dishes from it. In addition, the Atlas book gives me ideas to take off from hers and experiment since the recipes are simple and make use of some prepared products such as salsa. If you have to buy one or are beginning to explore vegetarian recipes, pick the Atlas book.
