This second volume in the 30-Minute Meals series offers tempting recipes for main-course veggies, veggie pastas, and salads. Steamed, roasted, or sautéed, vegetables are taking center stage. If you, like many others, are looking for a source of robustly savored, easy veggie meals, this is the book for you. VEGGIE MEALS offers hearty soups, main-course salads, comforting risottos, pastas, and Italian vegetable entrées, make-your- own Asian take-out, and versatile snack suppers, among other delights. Served as entrées or in a combination of side dishes, these are nutritious, meat-free meals that your families, even the kids, will love. Recipes were selected by popular demand (Rachael’s fans are outspoken), and all meet Rachael’s criteria that ingredients be fresh, readily available, and quick to prepare. Some top crowd-pleasers: Pumpkin and Black Bean Soup, Grilled Vegetable Platter with Crumbled Ricotta Salata, earthy Porcini Risotto, and zesty Portobello Pizza Burgers. Eat well and often!
