Lorna Sass' Short-Cut Vegetarian: Great Taste in No Time

Front Cover
Harper Collins, Jun 18, 1997 - Cooking - 162 pages
Enjoy delicious meals every day of the week using Lorna's short-cut techniques - strategies that result in a pantry filled with intense flavor by the spoonful: aromatic herb blends, spicy salsas, and quick zesty sauces based on mustards, infused oils, and nut butters. In dozens of distinctive recipes, Lorna shows you how to toss them with pasta, greens, grains, and beans to create innovative dishes in a flash. You'll also learn how to develop a repertoire using fast-cooking whole grains like quinoa to create main-dish pilafs and salads. Other recipes rely on long-lasting fresh vegetables like cabbage, leeks, potatoes, and carrots to create last-minute entrees like Pasta Fagioli with Cabbage or Green Leek and Potato Soup without requiring a stop at the supermarket. As you cook your way through these recipes, you'll quickly discover that Lorna is a master at building flavor fast. A drizzle of orange juice and a touch of cinnamon catapult organic canned lentils and frozen spinach to a gourmet stew. By combining a pre-mixed blend of Italian herbs and frozen artichoke hearts with instant polenta, Lorna turns simple ingredients into a memorable meal in under fifteen minutes, including prep!
