This “Tester Tuesday” post features more recipe tester photos from my new book, Quick-Fix Vegan: Healthy, Homestyle Meals in 30 Minutes or Less. These particular photos are a mini-tour of recipes from around the world. At the top of this post you see luscious Spicy Smoked Portobello Tacos — so easy to make and loaded with flavor. Mushrooms never tasted so good!
Here is another favorite, Deconstructed Bahn Mi Salad — if you’re a fan of my blog, you know how much I love the flavors in a bahn mi sandwich — heck, I’ve even made a bahn mi pizza! But for those times when you want all the flavor without all the bread, this salad is the answer. You can make it with your choice of seitan or tofu and garnish with a few slices of toasted baguette.
Speaking of seitan, here’s an elegant and delicious way to serve it. Seitan Forestiere is made with a creamy mushroom sauce inspired by the classic sauce of the same name.
Finally, we have the Special Spicy Empanadas. Made with a puff pastry dough and a sweet potato and pinto bean filling, these empanadas can be assembled in a flash (even faster if you have a leftover baked sweet potato) and bake up in just 20 minutes.
I hope you enjoyed this little trip around the world with Quick-Fix Vegan. Thanks to everyone who has e-mailed me about my new book, and also to those who’ve mentioned it on their blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Amazon. I’m very appreciative that this book is being so well received and hope you’ll continue to help me get the word out to others about it.
