Speedy MOB: 12-Minute Meals for 4 People

Tasty, quick-cook meals fast from author of the No.1 bestseller MOB Kitchen

Following on from the phenomenal success of MOB Kitchen and MOB Veggie, Ben Lebus returns with a third book in the series, this time with a focus on creating budget-friendly food, fast. MOB Speedy works on the principle that if the cornerstone of a meal (e.g. pasta, rice, beans) takes ten minutes to cook, then any recipe can take 12 minutes to prepare, cook, and serve.

Each recipe is photographed in classic MOB style with chapters including: Brunch, Pasta, Rice and Noodles, Bowls, and Puds. Back with more recipes than ever before, MOB Speedy features over 75 all-new recipes for everything from beetroot sabich and saag paneer to cheat's dan dan noodles and crispy beef tacos.

About The Author

Ben Lebus has always been passionate about food and learnt to cook from his father, who ran an Italian restaurant for a number of years. At university, he quickly saw that his roommates did not share his knowledge of cooking, and their repertoire consisted of pasta with pesto. That was it; he decided to devise a list of recipes that would feed 4 people for under £10, showing that it was possible to cook beautiful, healthy, delicious food on a budget. He launched MOB Kitchen three months after he graduated. The "thrifty home-cook's unlikely hero," according to the Daily Mail, Ben has harnessed a strategic group of supporters and collaborators, including sponsoring university sports team kit around the UK, and partnering with Waitrose, the Co-op, Sainsbury's, and dating app Bumble. MOB Kitchen has 180k+ followers on Facebook and 250k+ followers on Instagram.
