Overview

This first installment of the Hasty Gourmet series includes 300 healthy, savory dishes that are sure to please without requiring lots of time in the kitchen. From appetizers and soups to entrees and desserts that span Asian, Hispanic, and Mediterranean influences as well as traditional American comfort food, these recipes use readily available ingredients, have easy-to-follow directions, and take less than 30 minutes to prepare. Although created specifically for those required to monitor their salt intake, the majority of recipes are also low in fat and cholesterol- and sugar-free. Each recipe contains a complete listing of the nutritional information and total sodium content per ingredient. Hints on stocking a low-salt pantry, general cooking techniques, food labeling guidelines, and calorie and nutrient vignettes help make the switch to low-salt cooking easy and delicious.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In the first volume of a projected series of "Hasty Gourmet" cookbooks, Mostyn (Pocket Guide to Low Sodium Foods) begins with a discussion of the "low-salt lifestyle" with accompanying sidebars and boxes of useful information, including a quiz on which foods have more sodium (Manhattan or New England clam chowder?). The recipes follow and are arranged by course or type of food, with many familiar dishes adjusted for low-sodium diets, e.g., chicken quesadillas, roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, and bread pudding. Each recipe features a sidebar of comments (suggestions), nutritional information per serving, and the total amount of sodium and fat per ingredient. Some recipes contain "Food Notes" or "Variations" that provide additional information. This cookbook assumes that the reader has some knowledge of cooking, if a potato pancake recipe lacking guidance on the amount of batter to use is any indication. While the American Heart Association's Low-Salt Cookbook remains the bible on the subject, Mostyn's book is an excellent addition to the healthy cooking section of any library.-Christine Bulson, SUNY at Oneonta Lib.
