Cookbook giveaway - A Change of Appetite

A Change of Appetite

 A Change of Appetite is the 7th cookbook from London-based food writer and cookbook author Diana Henry.  We are delighted to offer 3 copies of the book, thanks to the publisher Mitchell Beazley/Octopus Publishing.

The book contains the recipes that Diana Henry created when she started to crave a different kind of diet - less meat and heavy food, more vegetable-, fish- and grain-based dishes - often inspired by the food of the Middle East and Far East, but also drawing on cuisines from Georgia to Scandinavia.

Diana has written a fascinating article on her blog about the process involved in writing the cookbook. With her kind permission, we have excerpts here

To win a copy, just answer this question: When you crave lighter and healthier food, what is your go-to dish?

  • The winners are restricted to those with mailing addresses in the UK and USA.
  • The giveaway will expire in 4 weeks on April 10, 2014.

This contest is now closed.  The 3 lucky winners, chosen by random number generator are sharifah, Rosesrpink50 and Schout.

    Simply prepared fish!

  • Margaretsmall  on  3/13/2014 at 4:07 PM

    Sounds like the book I need,I've recently lost a lot of weight (deliberately), blood pressure is down, but the challenge is to keep the weight off. And that means cooking delicious, satisfying meals without loads of fat, sugar and cream.

  • slimmer  on  3/13/2014 at 4:28 PM

    Roasted carrots. While my husband and I can eat a pound between us at dinner, I like to keep some leftovers for evening snacks -- keeps me out of the crackers or more fattening things.

  • kayanelson  on  3/13/2014 at 4:34 PM

    I love all sorts of salads, vegetable as well as grain based.

  • matag  on  3/13/2014 at 5:36 PM

    Fish. Or tomatoes and basil.

  • sgump  on  3/13/2014 at 5:55 PM

    A lightly dressed (oil-and-vinegar) salad of citrus fruit segments with avocado and red onion on watercress or baby spring greens.

  • Smuz90  on  3/13/2014 at 6:06 PM

    A light pasta with fresh cherry tomatoes and a fresh salad with radish, tomatoes and fennel.

  • Zosia  on  3/13/2014 at 6:26 PM

    Fish with vegetables baked together in parchment.

  • hillsboroks  on  3/13/2014 at 6:57 PM

    We have moved to less meat and more fish and vegetables over the past 15 years. I especially like to do stews and soups that are heavy on vegetables and interesting spices for the winter and salads in the summer.

  • pokarekare  on  3/13/2014 at 6:59 PM

    Vietnamese-style rice paper rolls! Mint, cucumber, lettuce, prawns or cooked chicken with a dab of dipping sauce!

  • Julimorr  on  3/13/2014 at 7:03 PM

    Grilled seafood

  • adrienneyoung  on  3/13/2014 at 7:49 PM

    Miso soup for me! I make one with lots of vegetables and just a few noodles floating through the broth.

  • Grinsall  on  3/14/2014 at 5:58 AM

    Thinly sliced tomatoes with a drizzle of good balsamic, Murray river salt flakes and freshly ground pepper. So simple so delicious.

  • nadiam1000  on  3/14/2014 at 6:28 AM

    Anything from the grill - especially asparagus, mushrooms and chicken breast - great on a bed of mixed greens with Balsamic. vinegar drizzle.

  • Lovestocook  on  3/14/2014 at 6:33 AM

    A fish recipe with loads of flavour. Something like Angela Hartnett's cod tagine with chickpeas is perfect - has lovely fresh cod, veg, Harissa for flavour and chickpeas for carbs without being heavy. Made a lovely salad for lunch with some home grown purple sprouting broccoli - light and really tasty.

  • Astrid5555  on  3/14/2014 at 7:45 AM

    Tofu and tempeh!

  • aeader  on  3/14/2014 at 7:57 AM

    Salad with lots of crunchy vegetables and a light vinaigrette.

  • decklededges  on  3/14/2014 at 8:17 AM

    Salad, always.

  • hihelen_westbrook  on  3/14/2014 at 8:44 AM

    Ohh, Diana Henry's books are just amazing, Salt, Sugar, Smoke is one of my favourites! My go to light dish is always a stir fry made with 1 tsp. of gochujang and 2 tsp. soy sauce which makes a delicious, slightly spicy sauce so it has masses of flavor to satisfy.

  • Emily Hope  on  3/14/2014 at 9:44 AM

    Grilled salmon with a cabbage slaw and brown rice on the side is a favorite healthy dish of ours.

  • westminstr  on  3/14/2014 at 10:13 AM

    Salads with tons of herbs. Soups packed with veggies.

  • SoRefined  on  3/14/2014 at 10:25 AM

    My goto are tomatoes, especially fresh. Lots of options as far as preparation goes.

  • MelMM  on  3/14/2014 at 10:30 AM

    Usually a vegetarian stir-fry or other Asian dish is what I go for.

  • vickster  on  3/14/2014 at 10:32 AM

    Grilled seafood (usually salmon) and a vegetable. I like to try recipes for fish and vegetables to vary the flavors and spices in my meals. Diana Henry is great for this type of cooking.

  • annapanna  on  3/14/2014 at 11:44 AM

    I love Jamie Oliver's Farro salad with roasted vegetables.

  • jenniesb  on  3/14/2014 at 12:55 PM

    few things epitomize "light fare" for me more than cucumbers...cucumber soup, cucumber and watermelon salad, tzatziki sauce over cucumbers and tomatoes with crunch pita bits as a topping. The Ottolenghi books have a lot of salads incorporating cucumbers and I would turn to those when seeking something light. I also recently bought my first mandoline, and I'm excited to use it to try making some zucchini noodles as a substitute for pasta!

  • fjain  on  3/14/2014 at 1:41 PM

    A stir-fry or vegetable frittata, preferably with salad.

  • dizzi36  on  3/14/2014 at 2:35 PM

    A vegetable stir fry :)

  • prpost  on  3/14/2014 at 2:52 PM

    Salads

  • jifar  on  3/14/2014 at 5:24 PM

    Favourite light and healthy dish is baked salmon with steamed new potatoes and watercress salad. Or Hoisin duck-breast with steamed rice and broccoli.

  • bellasf  on  3/14/2014 at 6:03 PM

    Salmon, when wild is in season, cooked medium-rare with nothing more than some olive oil, coarse salt, and freshly cracked pepper. Meyer lemon wedges to squeeze over the fish. A simple salad on the side. Something light like a red butter lettuce works well. that's our favorite light and healthy meal.

  • laurenlangston  on  3/14/2014 at 10:59 PM

    Larb, tabbouleh, and olives. I've been cutting back drastically on dairy and refined grains/sugars recently. It's been great but when I want a salty snack, I head right for the spicy olives. Lime leaves and citrus zest have proven such sanity-saving flavor-boosters for me. If I'm hungry but not in the mood for something Light and Refreshing, which is what I need to be eating, I find that citrus zest really helps to round flavors out and tie them together to be interesting and moreish.

  • robinorig  on  3/15/2014 at 12:15 AM

    I don't have one dish per se, but tend to eat primarily soups and salads, mostly vegetable based. One of my latest go to light dishes is from Michelle Obama's cookbook, the Collard Greens with Smoked Turkey http://www.eatyourbooks.com/library/recipes/1232333/collard-greens and I love roasting loads of root vegetables with a bit of olive oil, salt, pepper and fresh herbs.

  • milgwimper  on  3/15/2014 at 2:03 AM

    A salad with a lot of veggies and herbs and an asian dressing, it could be vietnamese influences, thai,korean,japanese, depends on mood and what I have on hand.

  • PatriciaAnn  on  3/15/2014 at 9:20 AM

    A salad of mixed baby greens, quinoa, red onion, mango, cranberries and walnuts, with a fruit dressing.

  • wester  on  3/15/2014 at 10:17 AM

    A herb salad. Parsley and/or cilantro, a hint of mint, maybe some spinach for bulk, and a vinaigrette. Lovely.

  • ckbkaddict  on  3/15/2014 at 10:32 AM

    Roasted beetroot, butternut squash and goats cheese salad with a lemon dressing and garnished with seeds. A recipe from another great British cookbook writer Sarah Raven!

  • angelanorr  on  3/15/2014 at 11:40 AM

    citrus and salads.

  • patsylu  on  3/15/2014 at 11:57 AM

    Kimchi!

  • Queezle_Sister  on  3/15/2014 at 1:08 PM

    A seasonal soup or cole slaw.

  • jupflute  on  3/15/2014 at 1:40 PM

    Grain based salads. Pick a grain (I love farro and barley, but quinoa or brown rice also work great), add a vegetable (roasted squash, roasted broccoli, etc.). Then add a dressing, which is usually lemon and oil based, add a little bit of a crumbled cheese like feta or goat cheese and some sort of nut or seed for crunch. It's a healthy meal that is easy and completely filling, not to mention customizable for your own tastes.

  • GillB  on  3/15/2014 at 1:43 PM

    A freshly poached egg on 5 grain toast

  • FunkyViriditas  on  3/15/2014 at 2:02 PM

    I always make or buy a green juice. I had one today made with collard greens, celery, orange, cucumber, spinach, parsley and pear. It has to have some fruit though, or I can't drink it.

  • Damsonette  on  3/15/2014 at 3:01 PM

    A crunchy salad with fruit for dessert

  • dinnermints  on  3/15/2014 at 3:18 PM

  • ballen  on  3/15/2014 at 6:13 PM

    Roasted vegetables with fresh herbs from the garden.

  • earthnfire  on  3/15/2014 at 6:51 PM

    Stir fried bok choy or quinoa salad

  • aargle  on  3/15/2014 at 7:04 PM

    Depends on the weather. If it's disgustingly hot Vietnamese rice paper rolls or if it's mild (it never gets cold where I live) lentil soup. I would love to get my paws on this book.

  • TheSpicedLife  on  3/16/2014 at 12:11 AM

    Vietnamese bun without a doubt, only heavy on the "salad" part. With larb gai following closely on its heels. My favorite summer meals!

  • JYang  on  3/16/2014 at 4:40 AM

    Boiled Chinese broccoli or bok choy with oyster sauce or soy sauce with sesame oil to taste

  • trudys_person  on  3/17/2014 at 5:15 PM

    Lots of baby spinach - raw or cooked! I find it lightens up anything!

  • nicole309  on  3/17/2014 at 9:26 PM

    Asian cabbage salad with sesame dressing or pretty much anything with that sweet, sour, spicy thing going on.

  • sailor  on  3/17/2014 at 11:00 PM

    a lovely light seafood stew with seafood stock from the freezer , prawns, squid, scallops, fish peices and lots of low carb vegies.

  • Spider8  on  3/18/2014 at 12:05 AM

    When I don't feel like a big meal I'll settle for a bowl of fruit and yoghurt sometimes also with a little cereal

  • JulesLP  on  3/18/2014 at 9:45 AM

    Salad or Roasted veggies or grilled vegetables

  • sabrina7  on  3/18/2014 at 10:44 AM

    soup noodles with light broth, lean meats, and vegetables

  • LubyLou  on  3/19/2014 at 9:02 AM

    I like mixed Bean Salad when I need something lighter

  • tahmeena  on  3/19/2014 at 9:05 AM

    All types of dhaal! They give the punch and satisfaction of a good curry without being too heavy. Paired with brown rice, a carrot and ginger salad or some cucumber raita, I could have this anytime for lunch or dinner.

  • luckyelf22  on  3/20/2014 at 1:37 PM

    A light pasta with tuna and mixed leaves

  • Brandeemk  on  3/20/2014 at 3:49 PM

    I am loving Lacinato Kale sautéed with capers, jalapeño stuffed green olives and caramelized onions. I love it warm with fresh lemon or cold with grilled yellowfin tuna and balsamic.

  • susan g  on  3/20/2014 at 3:51 PM

    I search the fridge for cooked grains and beans, vegetables raw and/or cooked, and the random sauces that accumulate there. That plus maybe an egg, HB or raw, will make a simple salad or stir fry that as light as I need, made quickly and helps manage the potential of food waste. I am interested in the premise of the book, and look forward to seeing it (one way or another) and cooking from it.

  • NelAllan  on  3/20/2014 at 3:57 PM

    I love a tuna and celery jacket potato if I fancy something light.

  • JoBills  on  3/20/2014 at 5:30 PM

    Baked paprika chicken with fennel, orange, and carrot.

  • LeePicard  on  3/20/2014 at 5:48 PM

    Farro with tofu, kale, mushrooms, butternut squash or possibly asparagus. Depends what veggies I have it the house. If it is during farm share season I add from what came in my basket that week.

  • mjirsch  on  3/20/2014 at 9:44 PM

    Simple...cottage cheese with tomatoes.

  • napier  on  3/22/2014 at 10:56 PM

    roasted veg mixed with some sort of wholegrain and whatever dressing takes my fancy at the time

  • DKennedy  on  3/23/2014 at 7:40 AM

    When I crave something lighter, I go for minimally prepared food such as an avocado drizzled with pistachio oil, bananas with creme fraiche, or whole strawberries served at room temp.

  • Tinala523  on  3/23/2014 at 10:37 AM

    A stir-fry with loads of colorful veggies and tofu. Fills me up and looks so pretty - you eat with your eyes first!

  • Toppermom  on  3/23/2014 at 1:30 PM

    I am leaning more and more toward a vegetarian diet--not entirely, but more than earlier in my life. Favorite meal is a big green salad with lots of vegetables and plant based protein with a light dressing on the side.

  • SamanthaV  on  3/23/2014 at 9:58 PM

    Salad is my lighter go to food for lunch...I love a chopped salad with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, avocado and onion and then just some lime juice over the top and a little bit of salt and pepper.

  • nihalh  on  3/24/2014 at 11:09 AM

    roasted broccoli with olive oil and garlic

    I don't know if it's healthier. But I love a nice pasta salad with lots of tomatoes, avocado, nuts, with a dressing of balsamic vinegar. In fact I'm having it tonight!

  • vinochic  on  3/24/2014 at 3:08 PM

    Nicoise salad with grilled tuna and a great vinaigrette.

  • herby  on  3/25/2014 at 1:42 PM

    Currently I love grain-based salads with assertive dressings (think preserved lemon) and lots of various veg - artichokes, mushrooms, peppers, capers, etc. I wasn't crazy about Diana Henry's books until I read her Salt Sugar Smoke and loved many-many recipes. Just like DH, my appetite is changing to a lighter, healthier fare and I can't wait to get her latest book into my hands!

  • acorgihouse  on  3/25/2014 at 8:45 PM

    Very simple broiled or grilled fish with a light lemon butter. Easy, fast, and you can do it with literally any fish and it's great. Throw in a few capers and it becomes heaven.

  • lsgourmet  on  3/26/2014 at 10:01 PM

    I head toward dishes based on grilled shellfish and fish when I'm looking to get away from heavy meals. I usually plan a meal to include a light vegetable based soup as we'll. That helps to make us feel full without weighing us down.

  • ae.bell  on  3/27/2014 at 3:29 PM

    Lighter and healthier is fish and salad here. I have several of her books and like her style.

  • ChazBrenchley  on  3/29/2014 at 6:30 PM

    Stone soup! Whenever I need to lighten up or readjust, I start with a bright homemade stock or broth, always with a turnip or parsnip included, and then build on that.

  • gjelizabeth  on  3/30/2014 at 5:06 AM

    Anything my vegetarian daughter is making for dinner. If I'm very busy and need a week's lunches on hand I'll make a pot of soup, starting with a pound of sausage and a quart of broth and adding chopped vegetables until I can't fit any more in the pot.

  • debbzt  on  3/30/2014 at 5:21 AM

    Crisp fresh salad with lots of rocket and herbs thrown in with a piece of lightly pan fried fish drizzled with lemon juice and topped with a toasted lemon.

  • smtucker  on  3/30/2014 at 7:30 AM

    Composed salad. Fresh greens lightly dressed topped with a little bit of a lot of things. Generally, presented with the greens on the bottom and then the 6-7 components in wedges from the center. Typical might be asparagus, radishes, carrots, leftover steak, tuna or a hard-boiled egg, pickled red onions, green beans, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, marinated artichoke hearts or mushrooms. These dinners should be colorful; eating the rainbow.
