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.

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.

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!

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

Format: Paperback
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.

This book is a dream come true for people who want to prepare healthy meals without spending a lot of time in the kitchen. The recipes are easy to use and they taste great too. Best of all, they are designed for the way people really cook, making selective use of high-quality convenience products, such as canned beans and tomato products, to speed things along. I especially appreciate that the recipes are cholesterol-free and not all gunked up with cheese. So glad to finally have a recipe book with great veg food that is quick to fix. I highly recommend it!
