Home alone? The Fifteen-Minute Single Gourmet shows how to shop fast and buy small amounts, then turn fresh ingredients into dishes rarely enjoyed when eating solo chez-vous. Mitchell makes a good case for cooking from scratch, asserting that it's healthier for both body and soul. She then helps you keep kitchen time to a minimum. You really can whip up her Tandoori Chicken, Sole with Currant-Almond Sauce, Zesty Black Bean Soup and 97 other varied dishes in about 15 minutes--and enjoy the results. To keep your larder lean, Mitchell suggests lots of variations for dishes. They handily help you use up ingredients you can't buy in single-serve sizes. There are also loads of tips that help inexperienced cooks and interest those who are more at ease in the kitchen.From Library Journal:
Mitchell's idea is a catchy one-quick and easy recipes for one person only, to inspire busy people on their own to cook a real meal. The recipes are quite varied, although Mitchell, whose previous book was The 15-Minute Vegetarian Gourmet (Macmillan, 1987), stays away from red meat here; the dishes are also low in fat and without added salt. Almost every recipe includes three or four simple but thoughtful variations, and there are lots of excellent tips and helpful hints. Fifteen minutes seems pushing it for some of the dishes, but the book is sure to have appeal.
