About the book:
9781910690185Are you under the impression that vegetarians can’t have fast food? On the contrary! This exciting new cookbook offers more than 80 quick and easy veggie recipes – from Manchego quesadillas and TexMex burgers to tomato-cinnamon fries and No Tuna Sandwich. This is the book of vegetarian food for those in a hurry, and the handy ‘vegan traffic light’ indicators – red for vegetarian; yellow for vegan adaptation and green for vegan make it easy to find vegan options just as quickly.
