Complete 15-Minute Gourmet Cookbook


by Paulette Mitchell

What can you cook up in 15 minutes? You might be surprised!

The offerings in your grocer’s freezer case or the fast-food drive-through are rarely nutritious or satisfying. But fortunately, you don’t have to sacrifice flavor or nutrition just because life is hectic. Paulette Mitchell provides the solution; her speedy meals are simple enough that even a novice can prepare them for the family on a busy weeknight. She also makes it possible to create sophisticated gourmet dishes to please the palates of discriminating guests – all in 15 minutes or less.

Anyone can use fresh, flavorful ingredients and Mitchell’s THE COMPLETE 15-MINUTE GOURMET: Creative Cuisine Made Fast and Fresh (Thomas Nelson, October 2008, $24.95) is guaranteed to achieve remarkable and beautiful results with minimal effort. The 350 recipes in Mitchell’s new book feature poultry, seafood, and beef and pork, as well as a chapter with vegetarian dishes. The recipes, representing many cuisines, are inspired by Mitchell’s world travels.

Mitchell also includes helpful suggestions for flawless execution and attractive presentation. “Fast and easy doesn’t make a dish less desirable, nor does it mean sacrificing complex flavors or a beautiful appearance,” says Mitchell. “If you plan ahead and get organized, you’ll be astonished at what’s possible in 15 minutes.”

Inside readers will find recipes such as:
· Modern Mom’s Chicken Noodle Soup
· Soba Noodle and Steak Salad
· Greek Snapper with Feta Cheese
· Honey-Mustard Chicken with Papaya-Pineapple Salsa
· Ravioli with Hazelnut and Sage Pesto

There’s also a chapter on speedy desserts, with exquisite treats such as Chocolate-Glazed Strawberries, Limoncello Ice Cream, and Tiramisu Pronto.

Mitchell’s recipes rely on her imaginative use of ingredients, not on elaborate techniques. Pairing fresh ingredients with pantry staples, these recipes offer traditional favorites as well as modern dishes sure to delight.
