Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Barley risotto with cauliflower

    • johnswhitehead on October 25, 2011

      Cheap, healthy, tasty, nutritious, filling. Perfect weekday supper dish.

  • Carrot and cashew nut rice

    • johnswhitehead on October 31, 2011

      Works well as a vegetarian main dish, but would be even better as an accompaniment to a meat curry. For once I followed the recipe faithfully and was rewarded with perfectly cooked basmati rice, one of life's great pleasures.

  • Crunchy granola

    • Hellyloves2cook on April 14, 2012

      Made this so many times over the years. Sometimes I double up the recipe as with teenage boys it doesn't last that long! definitely worth trying. I have tried honey as well as maple syrup.

  • Mykonos fruit cup

    • digifish_books on May 04, 2015

      Requires Cointreau. Recipe also appears in 'Delicious (Aus)' Magazine, Feb 2006, p. 115.

  • Tuscan bean soup

    • Cobden on April 10, 2015

      Page 54

  • Fast roast fish with anchovies

    • Lizzzzy on September 04, 2015

      Oh so tasty, healthy too and can be prepared in advance. An excellent way to cook for a number of people. Very, very nice! Served with red stalked Silverbeet- used Ottalenghi's Jerusalem Swiss chard with tahini recipe, maybe could have used something simpler.

Publishers Text

"Lighten Up" is a refreshing new approach to modern healthy eating. It is not a diet book, but it is a book for all food lovers who believe good food can be healthy and healthy food can be good for you. Containing over 100 great, easy-to-follow recipes, there are chapters covering everything from energising breakfasts and revitalizing salads to working lunches, comfort-me soups and fast weekday suppers; as well as those all-important fruity puddings, and entertaining ideas for the weekend. Extra features of this book focus on subjects including raw foods, umami (the 'fifth taste') and nifty kitchen tools, because it's not just our food that can lighten up, it's our whole approach to cooking.The balance in Jill's cooking has shifted towards fish, fruit, salads, grains and veggies. She still looks to provide big flavours and creamy textures but without the cream, the pastry, refined sugars and animal fats. The recipes are essentially simple and easy to prepare, with tempting dishes such as Tagliatelle with Salmon, Lemon and Rocket; Grilled Chicken with Salsa Verde; Japanese Mushroom Noodles; and, Pineapple and Coconut Souffle. Stunning recipe photographs show just how modern and irresistible Jill's healthy food really is.
