Although I spent 15 years living in Mediterranean countries of North Africa, there weren’t a lot of dishes here that reminded me of the great meals I grew accustomed to. Yet, the salads and soups and sandwiches, looked terrific. Two were the chick pea patties (felafel, or tamamaya, is one of my favorite Middle Eastern foods). My wife makes great salads similar to the Greek salad described.
Other nice features: Serving sizes; prep time; cook time and nutritional information.
While there are some nice photographs of the completed dish, I would have prefered many more.
Four stars out of five.
Several of the recipes are standard favorites, but with a "twist." For example, the beef sliders include chopped mushrooms for a juicy burger with added veggie benefits. The pasta for the Pasta Fagioli Soup (photo with the soup ladle) is cooked directly in the soup pot for a quick one-pot meal. The hummus (photo with carrot and celery sticks) is made with budget-friendly peanut butter rather than the more expensive tahini (sesame paste) and contains just 5 ingredients. The "Marinara Eggs" (skillet with 3 eggs) are cooked directly in a pan of Italian diced tomatoes ... delicious and so easy to make ... my husband and I are likely to prepare this most often for a quick dinner meal. Other recipes offer new recipe flavors and techniques such as "Pomegranate Cherry Smoothie Bowl. All of the recipes are made with a short list of ingredients.
Another thing I like about this book are all the tips the authors give to make both the experienced cook and the beginning cook successful. For example:
-- Ingredient substitutions and alternatives are offered.
-- Both quantities and approximate amounts of ingredients are given; for example, "2 garlic cloves, minced (about 1 teaspoon)".
-- Times, temperatures and size of preparation bowls and cooking pans are given throughout.
-- You don't have to guess whether or not to cover a pan or skillet when you cook a recipe.
-- There recipes are appropriate or can be adapted for a variety of dietary needs such as vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc.
-- Though most recipes will make four servings, it is easy to make more or less of several of the recipes. Many, such as the soups, will taste even better the next day.
-- It is easy to swap out ingredients for many recipes ... if you don't have one type of bean, use another. Missing walnuts ... try another nut.
(FYI ... these are my own photos and how the recipes looked when I served them. I hope you enjoy them as much as my husband and I did. We certainly plan to repeat them in our meals. And look forward to trying more of the recipes in the book!)
There are 101 recipes for breakfast, snacks, soups and salads, main dishes and desserts. Each recipe is clear and easy to follow and true to the name of the book - taking 30 minutes or less to make. Also included with each recipe are ingredient tips or prep tips to make the preparation even easier. Most importantly the recipes are delicious! The Roasted Shrimp Gnocchi Bake and Honey Cherry Walnut Brownies were 2 of my favorites and I have many more marked to try.
If you are interested in incorporating more delicious, flavorful meals that will help you live a healthier life, I encourage you to purchase this cookbook.
