Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites: Flavorful Recipes for Healthful Meals

This is the low-fat book cooks who care about wholesome, vegetarian-inspired food have been waiting for.  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-p

    I have several Moosewood cookbooks, but have sometimes found that the recipes can be complicated and time-consuming, and can involve ingredients that are not always easy to find. This book, however, contains good recipes that are not only healthy, but also relatively easy and quick to make. From soups to salads to entrees, I haven’t tried anything that I haven’t liked, and I really appreciate the effort that was made to make the dishes low fat. Low fat or not, the recipes included here are for food that is both flavorful and hearty. A must-try for the vegetarian or even the meat eater who wants to try to include some vegetarian meals in his/her diet. I find myself turning to this book when I want to make a meal for friends who are not necessarily vegetarian, and they are always pleasantly surprised and ask for the recipe! These meals would encourage even the hard core carnivores to take a break and eat some veggies!

    A Must Buy for People Interested in Yummy & Healthful Food, December 23, 2000

    OK, I admit it. I’m one of those people who buy cookbooks, but rarely get to the making the recipes stage. This is one of the few cookbooks I own, that I actually *use*. Why? Everything that I’ve made has been easy (no funky ingredients, no bizarre food appliances required), quick, and tasty. Although everything is vegetarian and low-fat–the food just tastes good. You don’t feel like you’re eating healthfully, you just acknowledge the goodness of the food (if that makes sense). Two of my favorite recipes are the pasta w/tomatoes and chickpeas (sounds bizarre, but very good) and the low-fat chocolate pudding. As somebody who has always bought Jell-O instant pudding, it was a revelation to realize I could make homemade low-fat chocolate pudding that was just as easy as opening up a box of Jell-O and 10x better in taste!

    This is an incredible vegetarian cookbook as well as an incredible low-fat cookbook. I have several Moosewood cookbooks that I love but this is now my ultimate favorite. I love the white bean and roasted pepper dip, I make a new batch every week to bring for my lunch with carrots. The pasta and green bean dish with sun dried tomatoes is so easy and delicious. I am going to try all the recipes recommended in the other reviews! The low-fat cooking tips at the beginning of the book are so helpful and having the full nutrient break down for each dish is wonderful too. What a great book. You really don’t feel like you are missing anything. I recommend it to all my friends and family.
