9780517884942: Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites: Flavorful Recipes for Healthful Meals

This is the low-fat book cooks who care about wholesome, vegetarian-inspired food have been waiting for, with more than 280 recipes that are as delicious and trustworthy as those in the Moosewood Collective's previous books.

With fourteen chapters, ranging from savory soups and main course salads to creative side dishes and aromatic Mediterranean and Asian-inspired dishes, fat will not be missed in mouthwatering recipes like Guacamole with Asparagus, Chinese Orzo Vegetable Salad, Spring Vegetable Paella, Indian Potato Pancakes, and Creamy Dairyless Rice Pudding. Along with those creative dishes, there are also low-fat variations on familiar favorites such as Macaroni and Cheese, Shephard's Pie, and Dark Chocolate Pudding. An added bonus: the Moosewood Collective has made sure that the ingredients used in the recipes throughout the book are easily found in most well-stocked supermarkets. 

Along with nutritional and glossary guides that provide explanations of nutritional terms, instructions for how to glean the information you need from nutrition labels, a brief overview of vitamins and minerals, and guides to ingredients and cooking techniques, the Collective also offers tips and ideas for sustaining a low-fat lifestyle. They bake rather than fry, replace high-fat ingredients with healthy substitutes (no artificial ingredients allowed!), and use butter and oil very moderately, so that what is lost in fat is gained in bold, intense flavors. 

Moosewood Restaurant Low-fat Favorites is sure to set the kitchen standard not only for health-conscious cooks, but also for those who have come to rely on the Moosewood Collective's easy, earthy approach to cooking.

Review:

The first Moosewood Cookbook--loved for its cozy, comforting food--mused oil, eggs, and dairy products so lavishly that it was extensively revised in 1992 to fit our changing diet. Now, the Moosewood Collective takes an even more extreme step: recipes in Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites are so intentionally healthful that they put the word right on the cover of this chubby book filled with lean recipes (many dishes get the fat down to a modest 16-17% of their total calories). Still, the 280-plus recipes offer the bold, pan-ethnic flavors that have won the Moosewood Collective cookbooks so many fans.

From the Publisher:

"The Moosewood Collective delivers toothsome fare for health-conscious carnivores as well as vegetarians in their latest collection."
Publishers Weekly
