Overview

The Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health: More Than 200 New Vegetarian and Vegan Recipes for Delicious and Nutrient-Rich Dishes by Moosewood Collective

Motivated by the simple principle that eating more vegetables, fruits, and whole grains keeps people healthier longer, the Moosewood Collective presents this all-new collection of more than 200 recipes that make whole foods wholly delicious. Moosewood Restaurant's cookbooks have long been an essential resource for creative recipes for home cooks, recipes that make mindful eating an unqualified pleasure. In this latest book, the Collective has carefully crafted recipes that celebrate local and environmentally sustainable food and that reflect the latest thinking on good nutrition.

From soups to desserts, the dishes in this book are distinctive, adventurous, and globally inspired. Including plenty of vegan, gluten-free, and raw food options, the book has something to please every taste. Polenta with Greens and Eggs or Whole Grain Pancakes will get the day started right; appetizers such as Chickpea Crêpes and Pineapple Salsa with Blueberries are festive for a casual gathering; and Southwestern Black Bean Burgers are a great choice for a cookout. Tofu, Leek, and Almond Stuffed Portabellas and Quinoa and Collard Leaf Dolmas are elegant choices for a more formal occasion. Desserts like Figs Baked with Chèvre and Pistachios, Chocolate Bark, and Sweet Potato Pie with Pecan-Oat Crust are naturally sweet and packed with nutrients. Each recipe comes with a detailed nutritional analysis as well as menu and serving suggestions. The Collective discusses everything from eating locally to the Glycemic Index, and the ideas and information will prove useful to both new vegetarians and those who grew up cooking with the Moosewood Restaurant.

Eating well feels good. Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health is all about cooking for pleasure and cooking for health. You can do both!

Having all of the Moosewood cookbooks, dating back to the first one in the '70's, this is the best yet. Very user friendly and I very much appreciated the nutrition breakdown for each recipe. THe first recipe I tried, Greek Style Black-Eyed Peas, was a winner, my dinner guests asking for the recipe!

The Moosewood Collective has promoted local, organic food since before it was popular. It's no surprise to find they're still a step ahead of the veggie curve, making a case for whole, plant-based foods. Their latest collection of more than 200 recipes showcases trendy, healthful ingredients like stevia, umeboshi, celeriac and more, with loads of vegan options and even raw foods. Moosewood Restaurant: Cooking for Health by the Moosewood Collective continues the tradition of accessible vegetarian cuisine for household cooks. Insightful ingredient descriptions preface ten different sections, highlighting, for example, the various kinds of beans and peas, how to cook them and cook times. Even if you're no stranger to healthy cooking, Moosewood's often-adventurous ingredient lists may send you to the store before dinner. Mouth-watering recipes like Avocado-Citrus Dressing (which I'm drizzling over just about everything these days), Greek Tomato-Yogurt Soup (delicious hot and cold!), and Mediterranean Eggplant Casserole (a satisfying fall recipe) have already earned spots on my dinner rotation. While I wish the folks at Moosewood understood the value of cookbook photographs - their books are notoriously artwork-free - I depend on their detailed serving information and accurate prep and cook time predictions. And since the collective blatantly encourages my recipe tinkering, I'm wholly sold. As the temperatures cool, I look forward to sampling Maple Banana Oatmeal, Creamy Curried Pea Soup, Polenta Casserole with Winter Squash and Greens, and Sweet Potato Pie with Pecan-Oat Crust, just to name a few. Fall even sounds delicious at the Moosewood Restaurant, and I hope to echo a few of those smells in my kitchen.

Moosewood comes through with another creative, healthy addition to my cookbook collection! Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health is all about flavorful, simple vegetarian and vegan recipes. I started my exploration with Spinach Quesadillas. Once the spinach, onion, and green chile mixture is made you can keep it in the fridge and you are mere minutes away from a delicious, healthy dinner. I don't have kids but I can imagine this would be a great way to get them to eat spinach! Next up was Savory Asparagus and Mushroom Bread Pudding. Warm and filling, it was perfect for the last of the cold weather. The feta gave it a nice salty note and it was great reheated for lunches during the week. The Granola recipe isn't anything very unusual, though it does use less fat and sweetener than most granola recipes I've made. It didn't clump but stayed more the consistency of a muesli. My boyfriend loved it and declared it the best granola yet. Most recently I tried the Pasta with Pistachio Lemon Pesto. Delicious! I really liked the light, bright flavors and even ended up spreading it on a pizza crust and topping with arugula and tomatoes. Best of all none of these recipes took more than 30-45 min and all the ingredients were readily available in my local grocery store. This is a cookbook I will use often.

great recipes that are tasty and fairly easy to make. the ingredients are those, primarily, that most cooks have in their pantry. good info on nutritional aspects of some foods. if you want to start eating healthy the recipes in this book are a good way to begin. It includes the calories as well as grams of protein, carbs, etc.

I recently decided to eat a healthier mix of foods and this book was wonderful. In addtion to providing great, healthy recipes, it explains a lot about different food choices and allows you to decide which one or ones would be most appropriate for your needs. It also provides great recipes and I particularly loved the recipes for different kinds of burgers. It's nice to make your own and decide what exactly goes into the burger instead of buying the pre-packaged frozen ones. I would recommend this book for anyone who is researching a healthy lifestyle as well as someone looking for a really good cookbook.
