{Book Review} Vegetarian Quick & Easy meals ~ Under 15 minutes

Hi there and welcome to yet another book review on all things vegetarian. I am having such a ball trying out all the different recipes, the greatest part is they are so easy to make and they are healthy. I never thought I would actually enjoy vegetarian anything until I started reading Jonathan Vine’s books. On Wednesday I went out for a work lunch and all I could think about was the vegetarian assorted bean salad I had in the fridge. So when we got to the restaurant I went straight for the salad menu and I couldn’t believe it me of all people looking at the salads instead of burgers. I unfortunately forgot to take a picture of this salad (sad face) but I can share the contents

  • Salmon
  • Cray fish
  • Avocado 
  • The usual salad contents; lettuce! tomatoes!onions!cucumber
  • The dressing was olive oil and vinegar.

Again, this isn’t something I would have taken as first choice but since my read go the vegetarian books I am now well informed.

Book Review
Well written, gives you enough knowledge but doesn’t overload you with too much Information. Grammar was on point and it actually has pictures. The recipes are easy to follow and they is enough for everyone, what I love is they are all essentially under 15 minutes to make. There is something for busy mummies even date night. I would recommend this to everyone and I have really enjoyed my read.

My name is Jonathan Vine, and I was caught up in the vegetarian lifestyle a few years back. I have to say that giving up on meat did not struck me in a single moment, nor it was a swift decision, but an inner journey that evolved within a few months. Eventually I took a final decision that the suffering of animals is my grief and my motivation.
I was always enthusiastic about cooking. For me this is absolutely one of the greatest joys life can offer. With my vegetarian cooking style, I never feel deprived of what I eat, but rather satisfied and exhilarated with each bite.
My goal is to publish books that will empower readers to improve their health and well-being through simple everyday ingredients and low fat recipes that make eating affordable, realistic and delicious.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
