From Publishers Weekly
This collection of fast and flavorful dinner dishes lives up to its title, sharing entrees that can be prepared in 45 minutes or less, culled from EatingWell
's "Healthy in a Hurry" column. Dishes like Chipotle Flank Steak Tacos with Pineapple Salsa, and Roasted Cod with Warm Tomato-Olive-Caper Tapenade are accompanied by sidebars giving active and total cooking times and per serving nutritional analyses. Notes indicate if a dish is "heart healthy," "low carb" or "high fiber" (almost every dish falls into at least one category). Whole foods, fresh herbs, low-fat dairy, "good" fats (olive and canola oils) and a few carefully selected frozen and canned goods are the kinds of ingredients called for, and a solid introduction tells readers how to stock the pantry, refrigerator and freezer, as well as plan menus. A chapter on sides gives ideas for preparing salads, grains and vegetables, including a piece on "how to cook 20 veggies" five simple ways each. With an index that sorts meals into "Healthy Weight," "30 Minutes or Less" and "Family Friendly" categories, and frequent full-color photographs, this book is not only easy to cook from but a pleasure to use.
