I've been wanting to get a "30 minute meals" cookbook.

God bless!

Quick Fix Vegetarian By Robin Robertson is good. I just got it for Christmas and have only tried two recipes so far, but have enjoyed them both and like that they are quick and easy to make.

How It All Vegan and Garden of Vegan by the same authors. Mine are stained and falling apart I've used them so much over the years! They have especially delicious (and healthy even compared to other vegetarian cookbooks) baked goods, and I've found that the basic recipes are EXCELLENT starting points for creating your own signature version of a dish.

In fact, with all the vegetarian cookbooks I own (all the cookbooks I own, period) they're the only ones I use.

But the awesome thing for vegetarians, is that he did an all vegetarian "how to cook everything". We love his recipes and I just want to say a little more about why: he gives a great "method" for making various things and lots of variations and ideas on how to vary it yourself.
