Publishers Text

Spanning the globe with dishes from Mexico to Italy to India, here are recipes to suit every palate and every occasion. Temptingly illustrated with over 200 full-color photographs of the finished dishes, detailed easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions, complete nutritional information, plus creative ideas for varying every recipe male this cookbook a necessity for anyone looking for healthy recipes that are quick and easy to make. Preparation and cooking time for each recipe are highlighted--15,20,25, or 30 minutes--to help make choosing the perfect meal for the time available.

All recipes were tested by the Reader's Digest team of experts to assure success. Including such dishes as:

  • Spicy Drumsticks with Creole Rice, Moroccan Chicken with Couscous, Greek Chicken Pitas
  • Seafood Jambalaya, Classic Grilled Dover Sole, Salmon with Mango Salsa
  • Penne with Artichokes and Olives, Chili Prawns with Rice Sticks, Hong Kong-style Chow Mein with Pork and Green Vegetables
  • Puddings, Chocolate and Hazelnut Souffles, flambeed Asian Pears, Raspberry and Vanilla Risotto

Learn, too, how to serve quick healthy meals without a loss of flavor. Boost your meal's nutritional value by following tips like these:

  • using yogurt in a dip, rather than oil or mayonnaise, helps boost calcium content and reduce fat content
  • Mozzarella contains less fat than many other cheeses and, like all cheeses, is a good source of protein, calcium, and the B vitamins
  • Celery contains a compound called phthalide, which studies have shown may help to lower high blood pressure

With preparation and cooking time totalling 30 minutes or less, this book is a must for every busy meal-maker.
