"After vegan chef Lindsay S. Nixon wrapped up her popular cookbook The Happy Herbivore Cookbook last year, she went back to her kitchen in her new home of St. Maarten. Island living encouraged her to come up with simpler recipes, which led her to create a follow-up cookbook with a focus on recipes that bring tasty back to quick-and-easy. Now, in Nixon's much-anticipated follow-up cookbook, Everyday Happy Herbivore, readers will see, once again, that just because plant-based eating is optimal for health, that doesn't mean it has to be expensive or time-consuming. Everyday Happy Herbivore will include more than 175 doable recipes--recipes that are so quick and easy, you could cook three healthy meals from scratch every day. Each of Nixon's recipes are made with wholesome, easy-to-find, fresh ingredients and include no added fats. With additional notes indicating recipes that are ideal for preparing ahead of time and those you can whip up with just a few dollars, Everyday Happy Herbivore will be the must-have cookbook for anyone desiring a healthier, happier menu!"

Healthy and quick but a little boring

If you are looking for imaginative cuisine with bold flavors, this is not the book for you. While the recipes are very quick, and feature inexpensive, easily found ingredients, there's not much else to recommend it. Of the recipes I've tried, everything tastes okay (except the Pumpkin Sage Pasta, which I did not like at all), but nothing is particularly exciting. The Tempeh Chili Mac was probably the most interesting in texture and flavor, and would make a good "throw together at the last minute" meal on a busy weeknight. If super low key is what you're looking for, then give this book a try. For more adventuresome vegan cooking, try Veganomicon, Vegan Eats World, or Vegan Soul Kitchen.

EDIT: I made the Cajun Chickpea Patties today and they were actually quite delicious! If you check out this book, be sure to try this recipe.
