Learning project: Jeff Novick’s Fast Food

20 Jul

I often joke that the reason I spend my summers in Chautauqua is for the pleasure of shopping at Wegmans.

This week my shopping trip took on a new aspect because of a new learning project: I am going to experiment with Jeff Novick’s “Fast Food” approach to cooking. Novick makes the following claim: that you can make a nutritious plant based meal in only ten minutes. This sounds like a pretty good idea; time management and good nutrition! I am going to give it a try.


One immediate problem is that Novick’s program relies heavily on tomatoes, they are included, in some form, in just about every recipe. As it happens, beyond spaghetti sauce, I don’t really like tomatoes and my wife finds them too acidic. So, in order to make this work, I will have to find some substitutes.

I’ll let you know how things work out.
