Cook the Pantry: Vegan Pantry-to-Plate Recipes in 20 Minutes (or Less!
I had the pleasure of testing the recipes for this book, and each new recipe came together quickly with little fuss, and always tasted delicious. Robin includes a wide variety of recipes that you can make with basic staples in a well-stocked kitchen, and even provides the resources on how to build a well-stocked pantry, if you don't have one already.Some of my favorites include the Tortilla Soup, the Creamy Peanut Soup, the White Bean Nicoise Salad, the Homestyle Hash Burgers, the Jerk Tempeh with Coconut Quinoa, the Bananas Foster Dessert Nachos, and last but not least, the Chocolate-Coated Walnut-Stuffed Dates in Pastry. Robin gives tips on how to simplify the recipes even further, and variations for people that have very little time to cook dinner. And best of all, every single recipe is vegan! This is a great book to have on hand in your own cookbook library, and would be a great Christmas gift this holiday season!
