Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites

Flavorful Recipes for Healthful Meals

Overview

From the publisher

This is the low-fat cookbook for cooks who care about wholesome, vegetarian-inspired food. Each of the more than 280 recipes are as delicious and trustworthy as those in the Moosewood Collective’s previous books, and vibrant flavors and generous portions are still a hallmark of every dish.

Because the Collective’s primary goal is always to make great-tasting food, they resisted the notion of doing a low-fat book until they were convinced they could make low-fat dishes as flavor-packed as their regular favorites. Here the Collective emphasizes a few changes in basic cooking techniques to apply to everyday recipes, and they offer tips and ideas for sustaining a low-fat lifestyle. They bake rather than fry, replace high-fat ingredients with healthy substitutes (no artificial ingredients), and use butter and oil very moderately. What is lost in fat is gained in bold, intense flavors.

In the nutritional, glossary, and guide sections of Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites, the Collective gives explanations of nutritional terms, instructions for how to glean the information you need from nutrition labels, a brief overview of vitamins and minerals, and guides to ingredients and cooking techniques.

With chapters ranging from healthy breakfasts and lunches to a collection of fish recipes and more than 20 truly delectable desserts, Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites is sure to set the kitchen standard not only for health-conscious cooks, but also for those who have come to rely on the Moosewood Collective’s easy, earthy approach to cooking.
