From the author of the brilliant A Modern Way to Eat, a new collection of delicious, healthy, inspiring vegetarian recipes – that are so quick to make they’re achievable on any night of the week.
Many more of us are interested in eating healthier food on a regular basis but sometimes, when we’re home late, tired after work, and don’t have time to buy lots of ingredients, it can just seem too complicated.
In this brilliant new collection of recipes, Anna Jones makes clean, nourishing, vegetable-centred food realistic on any night of the week. Chapters will be broken down by time (recipes for under 30 or 20 minutes, or recipes that are quick to prepare and can be left to slow cook) and also by planning a little ahead (quick healthy breakfasts, dishes you can make and re-use throughout the week). Anna’s new book will be a truly practical and inspiring collection for anyone who wants to put dinner on the table quickly, without fuss, trips to specialist shops or too much washing up, but still eat food that tastes incredibly and is doing you good.

In this follow-up to A Modern Way to Eat, London-based food writer and stylist Jones shows today's cooks how to "be smarter in the kitchen" by making vegetables the focus of each meal. Espousing a belief in the transformative power of food, Jones offers an uncomplicated "realistic plan for eating long-term" based on readily available natural ingredients "straight up everyday food." Recipes are organized by the time required for preparation, from 10- or 15-minute dishes ready in the time it takes to set the table to 20-, 30-, and 40-minute feasts. Recipes for freezer-friendly batch or "investment cooking," speedy breakfasts, and quick desserts and sweet treats help home cooks make the most of their time preparing well-balanced, fuss-free meals. A quick one-pot, lemony spaghetti dish includes kale and tomato; zucchini noodles are dressed with pistachio, herbs, honey, and ricotta; a smoky spiced corn chowder is topped with maple-toasted coconut. A dozen useful charts show how to build varieties of omelets, grain-based bowls, stir-fries, baked potatoes, salads, dressings, burritos, and more. Colorful photos display rustic, unadorned dishes. Cooking directions are friendly, though wordy, and Jones cheers cooks on to practice the art of "quick, calm cooking" that balances "wellness and deliciousness" on every plate.
