Summary

With 250 tempting recipes to take you from breakfast all the way through dessert, Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast is the indispensable collection that home cooks yearn for. Organized into familiar categories-including sandwiches and pizzas, appetizers, salads, soups and stews, pastas, main courses, and side dishes-this highly anticipated follow-up to the bestselling Everyday Food: Great Food Fast helps you whip up the perfect dish any time of day. Here is a book for the way we cook and eat now, with an emphasis on stretching meals (for example, leftovers from a roasted chicken are used to make a quick gumbo and roasted vegetables perform a second act as a vibrant pizza topping), turning to economical ingredients that deliver great results (such as flank steak, served with a piquant parsley-garlic sauce), and making healthier versions of comfort foods without skimping on flavor (like a lower-calorie chicken potpie). A section on enticing vegetarian main dishes as well as a roster of irresistible desserts round out this comprehensive collection. Here's a taste of what's inside: Breakfast: Jam-Filled French Toast; Sandwiches and Pizzas: Eggplant and Mozzarella Melt; Appetizers: Goat Cheese Crostini; Salads: BLT Salad with Buttermilk Dressing; Soups and Stews: Minestrone; Pastas: Spaghetti Puttanesca; Main Courses: Meatballs with Rosemary; Vegetarian: Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto; Side Dishes: Roasted Sweet Potato Fries; Desserts: Gingered Blackberry and Plum Shortcakes. Brimming with great time- and budget-saving tips as well as smart kitchen techniques, Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast helps you use what you have on hand to make everyoner's favorite foods. With an easy-to-read format, a photograph of each and every dish, and plenty of ideas to keep you inspired, this is the cookbook you will turn to day after day for wonderfully simple, delicious meals.

Excerpts

Recipe:
Farfalle with Arugula and White Beans

 
Serves 4  -  prep time: 10 minutes  -  total time: 25 minutes
 
Quickly wilted arugula, canned beans, and toasted walnuts add heft to this vegetarian main course. Try spinach in place of arugula and pine nuts instead of walnuts.
 
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
12 ounces farfalle
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 pound baby arugula
1 can (15 1/2 ounces) cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1/3 cup walnut pieces, toasted for garnish
 
1 Bring a pot of water to a boil; add a generous amount of salt. Cook pasta until al dente according to package instructions. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water; drain pasta.
2 Add 1 tablespoon butter and the garlic to the pot; cook over medium heat, stirring, until garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add arugula; toss just until wilted.
3 Add beans, pasta, and remaining 3 tablespoons butter; season with salt and pepper. Heat, tossing, until butter is melted and beans and pasta are warmed through, about 1 minute. Add enough reserved pasta water to create a thin sauce to coat pasta.
 
4 To serve, divide among shallow bowls, and garnish with walnuts.
