Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Since we all tend to rely on a rotation of familiar recipes, it's possible to make a real change in your eating habits just by picking seven new ones as designated family favorites. With its emphasis on everyday cooking, from appetizers to desserts, this second edition of the American Heart Association’s classic low-salt, low-fat cookbook provides a big range of new recipes and alternate versions of old favorites to choose from. Those looking to reduce their daily salt intake have come to the right place.

As any cook knows, if you take out salt, you need to add flavor, or the dish will taste flat. These recipes add flavor by using herbs, spices, and fresh ingredients; different cooking techniques to boost flavor (like roasting tomatoes for a Tomato Basil Pesto Soup); and low-salt commercial products or homemade versions of high-salt ingredients like broth, mustard, horseradish, pickles, and chili sauce. Among its 175 recipes, you'll find plenty of all-American standards (Meat Loaf, Southwestern Beef Pita Tacos) as well as more adventurous international dishes (Spicy Chicken Saté, Mango Havarti Crepes, Caribbean Jerk Pork), plus a good selection of desserts.

In addition to 50 recipes completely new to this edition, the American Heart Association Low-Salt Cookbook, Second Edition contains advice on shopping, dining out, ingredient substitutes, and cooking techniques. Every recipe includes a nutrient analysis; in this edition, fiber has been added to the usual lineup. (Ginger Curwen)
