Honest Cookbook reviews: Quick and Slow by David Frenkiel and Luise Vindahl (Green Kitchen).
In 5 words:
Vegetarian, quick, slow, healthy and flavourful.
Index, recipes photos:
Easy to find ingredients:
Easy to follow recipes:
Well designed book with easy to follow, flavourful vegetarian recipes (I miss bullets or numbered steps though).
The book in divided in 2 types of recipes: easy (quick) during the week recipes and slow cooking (slow) weekend recipes, those to enjoy cooking with the entire family.
No step by step photos of the recipes.
Ingredients: Are not difficult to find but are not the regular ingredients I have at home either. Some recipes have a long list of ingredients.
Savoury recipes use lots of spices.
There are lots of desserts as well. My favourite: Upside down lemon ricotta cheesecake (pag. 210)
Recipes are on the healthy side.
Tips: recipes have notes to make them gluten free or nut allergy free.
Price: 35 € (Amazon.nl)

My own opinion about this CookBook:
I think it is a nice book if yo are already into plant based or vegetarian cuisine.
If you are not or are transitioning, you will find that you need to buy lots of spices and new ingredients.
Photography is nice but it could be better.
It is a nice book to find inspiration to eat more vegetables but it is not my go to book. I find that Six Seasons is still my go to book for vegetable inspired dished.
