NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Never throw out your leftovers again with these delicious and healthy meals designed to transform into an entirely different dish the next night from best-selling author Cassy Joy Garcia.
As a busy mom of two, Cassy Joy Garcia, the best-selling author of Cook Once, Eat All Week, has limited time to get food on the table. With this book, she shares a fresh approach to preparing dinner in a hurry. These 120 easy, delicious recipes are designed to use the leftovers from one recipe to quickly cook a completely different meal the next day.
While most meal-prep cookbooks require you to plan your entire week ahead of time and spend hours in the kitchen (and a small fortune on groceries), Cook Once Dinner Fix shows you how to utilize the leftovers from one meal to create an entirely new creation for the next. The leftover Roasted Garlic Turkey Breast transforms into Spiced Turkey Potato Soup, and Dry-Rubbed Barbecue Brisket becomes crowd-pleasing Cheesesteak-Stuffed Peppers. No matter your favorite flavor profile or dietary restrictions, this book is packed with recipes the whole family will enjoy.
The Cook Once Dinner Fix solves the “what’s for dinner” question without requiring enormous amounts of time, energy, skill, or money. Now dinnertime can be fun, fast, affordable, and sustainable.
Busy parents are treated to a savvy strategy for knockout, plan-ahead recipes from Fed + Fit blogger Garcia (Cook Once Eat All Week). Built upon her "Dinner Series Concept" which takes components from a meal to create new and "completely different" fare Garcia's collection serves up ideas for 60 dishes with a second act. "Dinner doesn't have to be difficult to be delicious," she writes, ably demonstrating exactly that with 120 paired recipes that are innovative, flexible, and, most importantly, simple to execute. Preparation is straightforward: chicken thighs from sun-dried tomato bacon chicken pasta are transformed into Jamaican-inspired chicken bowls, while roasted potatoes serve double duty, first on a pesto potato and mushroom pizza, then as the star of a tzatziki-topped potato bowl with cauliflower tabbouleh. Hacks for smart cooking include a thorough how-to on freezing foods (beginning with a flash tutorial on the "science of freezing"), a list of must-have tools, and suggestions for subbing out ingredients. Elsewhere, a helpful chart cross-references recipes by dietary restrictions: dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, grain-free, low-carb, and nut-free options abound. And while some recipes are not quick, their utility in multiple dishes ultimately saves planning time down the line. This is sure to satisfy everyone at the table.
