UPDATE: Thanks for all your posts about quick and easy recipes. They all sound delicious! I’ll be choosing a winner(s) in the next few days and I’ll contact you to get your mailing address!
Over the course of the past year or so, I’ve been collecting different cookbooks in search of recipes that would become staples in my everyday life. So far, the books I’ve collected have cost me a solid amount of money and now take up a tremendous amount of space in my apartment, but to be honest, I don’t really use all that much of them. Some of the books contain recipes that require me to buy all kinds of crazy ingredients and utilize weird techniques, and when I see stuff like that, I usually file the book away and rarely pick it up again.
I’ve already talked to you about one go-to book that I keep using over and over, Chef AJ’s “Unprocessed,” and I want to tell you about two more that my wife and I have been really into lately and have been getting some serious use. I met Lindsay Nixon, “The Happy Herbivore,” a couple of months ago at Dr. McDougall’s Advanced Study Weekend where she did a cooking demo, and I picked up both of her books while I was there. “The Happy Herbivore Cookbook” and “Everyday Happy Herbivore” are both loaded with easy-to-make staple recipes and crowd pleasers, and they’re both bull of fantastic pictures of almost all of the recipes. “Everyday” is supposed to be geared towards extreme ease of use and quickness (all the recipes can be completed in under 30 minutes), but I’ve found the other cookbook contains some pretty darn easy recipes as well. Some of the things I’ve gotten addicted to lately include a mock tuna salad (from Happy Herbivore) and a jalapeño butternut squash soup (from Everyday), and my wife has gotten hooked on the mock egg salad (also from Everyday).
Sound good to you? Well, how would you like a copy of each of the books????? The publishing team that puts out both of these books contacted me and offered me a free copy of each to give away to you fantastic readers.
Here’s how you win: Leave a reply in the comment section and describe your favorite easy plant-based go-to meal, maybe one you even know by heart, and I’ll select the best and send the lucky winner copies of both Lindsay’s books!
