Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Carrot apple slaw with cranberries

    • Cheri on June 03, 2014

      This was a great picnic salad, keeps well, improves with time. Refreshing. Made one day ahead and we loved it. Nice crunchy side with a sandwich. Even though these are more "fall" flavors, I found it to be a bright summery dish as well.

  • Silk Road spiced walnuts

    • jumali on May 01, 2013

      These nuts have a very interesting flavor--not at all sweet.

  • Gluten-free blueberry mini muffins

    • PennyG on June 05, 2016

      I do not eat gluten free, but I have a good friend who does. I bought this book for her birthday and made these muffins for her. They are good, but not nearly as nice as my regular blueberry muffin recipe. I'm glad I do not need to eat gluten free - the almond flour and maple sugar cost a fortune!

      Being a mom of a recently diagnosed child with juvenile diabetes, I am on the constant lookout for healthy treats that do not cause high blood sugar spikes, and these definitely fit the bill. I did not grind the almonds that finely to add a little crunch, substituted agave syrup for honey, and reduced the maple sugar by one third. Delicious little treats which will go into the regular rotation!

      Absolutely delicious and incredibly quick and easy! I always hesitate a bit about cookbooks with titles like "Age-Busting" or "Power Foods" but Rebecca Katz truly does create delicious food that is also healthy.

  • Quinoa with edamame, ginger, and lime

    • Astrid5555 on April 29, 2014

      Made as a healthy side dish to an otherwise not so healthy main :-). Very good.

  • Swiss chard and roasted butternut sqaush tart

    • sheepishjen on December 06, 2015

      I have made this many times and it is absolutely fantastic. It also freezes very well. It is great as an appetizer for vegetarian guests - I cut it in bite sized pieces and then warm quickly in the oven before passing around on a tray. Loved by meat-eaters and vegetarians alike.

  • Julie's "spring is busting out all over" soup

    • Barb_N on March 27, 2014

      Who could resist such a happy sounding recipe? This makes a creamy (dairy free) green soup- leeks, peas (I used edamame), asparagus, parsley and finished with lemon juice. The recipe seems a bit of a mish-mash in the name of longevity promoting ingredients- thyme, mint, chive oil and yogurt. I skipped all of these and the flavor was well balanced.

  • Curried butternut squash soup

    • Barb_N on February 21, 2017

      I made this for an ailing friend using homemade bone broth. So good I was sad there was not enough to keep some at home. I had to ad lib with the second batch as I ran out of cumin, using curry powder instead. The flavors are spot on and full of healing properties if you ascribe to that: ginger and turmeric especially.
