Notes about this book

  • sck on July 28, 2010

    I like it. It's a diet book so food can only be so good, but we've really enjoyed a number of things from this book. I'm so glad a book has been made for foodies who want to cook healthier.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Wild and brown rice pilaf with cranberries

  • Chickpea and vegetable tagine

    • aeader on February 13, 2014

      This was a very good vegetarian meal, served with couscous. I didn't have the parsnips so I substituted extra butternut squash. My vegetable pieces were pretty large (~2") and initially I was concerned that they wouldn't cook through and that there wouldn't be enough liquid, but it worked out fine. If I had used smaller pieces I would have had to decrease the cooking time to keep them from getting mushy. The carrots cooked more slowly than the other vegetables so I would cut them a little smaller. I used a large cast-iron dutch oven and stirred about every 10 minutes to make sure it cooked evenly. Flavors were even better the next day. I would add more chickpeas next time, as I felt like they were too sparse among the vegetables. The most time-consuming part of the recipe was chopping and peeling all the vegetables.

  • Tofu Provençal

    • aeader on February 13, 2014

      I was looking for a new way to prepare tofu (I always use it in Asian style dishes) and I was surprised at just how delicious this was. I didn't have the zucchini so I used extra onions and red pepper. This was very quick and easy to prepare. I served it with rice and had the leftovers with quinoa for lunch.

  • Curried rice salad

    • aeader on May 04, 2013

      I expected this to be a little blah but it actually was quite tasty. I didn't have the pumpkin seeds or the scallions but would definitely add them next time. I used a brown rice and added a bit more than the recipe called for (2.5 cups) but the amount of dressing still worked with the extra rice.

  • Sesame chicken salad with ginger dressing

    • aeader on April 17, 2020

      I've made this as written and have also used pre-cooked (poached) shredded chicken tossed in the dressing. Both were very good. It's nice to use greens that are a little hardy since they will wilt under the hot dressing. DH liked it and asked to repeat for dinner.
