Book Description

Breakfast is back! And Mollie Katzen's Sunlight Café offers tasty, protein-rich, meatless breakfasts to boost your energy level and get you going first thing in the morning--or any time of the day. Mollie Katzen provides simple, mouth-watering, healthful recipes and menus for every day of the week, whether you are preparing a sit-down brunch for ten, breakfast-on-the-go for kids running late, a light bite after a late night, or a luxurious breakfast in bed.

Lavishly illustrated throughout with Mollie's luminous paintings, Mollie Katzen's Sunlight Café is divided into 12 chapters of breakfast fare, including yogurt and cheese, griddled foods, muffins and biscuits, eggs and tofu, whole grain cereals, homemade breakfast bars and coffee cakes, puddings and custards--and much more. In addition to showing you exactly how to make the perfect omelet or the crispiest waffles, Mollie offers irresistible recipes that range from the familiar Winter Fritata with Red Onions, Red Potatoes, and Goat Cheese, to the favorite Gingerbread Pancakes, to the surprising Basmati Almond Muffins, and on to irresistible Crispy Southwest Polenta Hash. And Mollie's energy-packed Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Protein Bars are certain to become a ray of sunshine in any kitchen.


Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Can there possibly be anyone left in the U.S. who hasn't heard of Mollie Katzen? Or if not Mollie herself, at least her first cookbook, the now classic Moosewood Cookbook? Few writers have reached so broad an audience with a healthy-cooking, pro-vegetarian message. Ms. Katzen's latest effort, Sunlight Café, turns breakfast into a healthy, fulfilling showpiece meal, a morning sanctuary for assembling the day. She explains how to do this, no matter what your time crunch or disinclination might be. And in an introductory essay called "Breakfast for Metabolic Health," she explains why.

There are chapters in Sunlight Café devoted to beverages, fruit, grains, muffins and the like, eggs, potatoes, breakfast vegetables, griddle foods, puddings, etc. Katzen takes the time and space to explain how to scramble eggs, how to enrich scrambled eggs, how to augment scrambled eggs, and how to achieve the world's creamiest scrambled eggs. Does that sound comprehensive? Well, the entire book has been written that way. Nothing has been left out. Not sure how much water goes with a cup of brown rice, or how long to cook the grain? Katzen supplies the all-encompassing chart. It's one of many, and worth the price of the book. Among the 350 recipes you'll find easy, delicious baked goods to make ahead and eat at your desk (Katzen is not out of touch with the working world). You'll also find menus for the relaxed brunch you can lay out on the weekend. Leave it to Mollie Katzen: she has taken breakfast and made it better than ever. --Schuyler Ingle

From Publishers Weekly

Having revolutionized American eating habits with her Moosewood Cookbook back in the 1970s, Katzen is now poised to revolutionize breakfast. Opening with a useful section on equipment and ingredients, the book is divided into twelve chapters that cover the more common cereals and muffins as well as beverages, yogurt and cheese. Some dishes such as the Miso Soup, the piquant Breakfast Gazpacho and the traditional Passover dish Matzoh Brei draw on global influences, but many are new takes on traditional food. The recipes vary from the simple Berries in Buttermilk to the slightly complicated and more time-consuming Babka, but all are within reach of most cooks. Sprinkled throughout the book are panels containing helpful tips, and where relevant she gives full instructions for the basics, as with How to Scramble an Egg and the Grain Cooking Chart, a lifesaver even for experienced cooks. Health has always been one of Katzen's concerns; many of the dishes are low fat and healthy, and some have been provided for those with special needs to wit, the Scrambled Egg Whites, a light, alternative for those with cholesterol concerns. The resulting volume is comprehensive and accessible for breakfast phobes with hectic morning schedules as well as those who love to linger over their first meal of the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful and Nutritious Guide to Good Breakfasts April 5, 2004
Format:Hardcover
Mollie Katzen's self-named book `Mollie Katzen's Sunlight Café' is a very welcome addition to the very small number of books available on breakfast. As I have just reviewed a classic, `The Breakfast Book' from the widely recognized author, Marion Cunningham, it seemed only appropriate that I tackle this new breakfast book by an equally honored writer who is best known for her books on vegetarian cooking co-authored with the Moosewood Collective.
Before I loose you in my usually long discourse, let me say that this book can do more good for your eating and health than just about any three other books put together. This opinion is based both on the quality of the book and the special position of it's subject.
Most people give less attention to breakfast than to either lunch or dinner. This means that breakfast is the one meal where the room for improvement is the greatest. It certainly has a higher potential for improvement than lunch, as most people eat lunch outside of the home. Even if they carry lunch from home, the range of foods, which can be made portable without special equipment, is smaller than what can be prepared and eaten in ones own kitchen.
This book is directed not only at a very wide range of good breakfast food, it is also directed at giving you the information you need to eat a nutritious breakfast with few or no `empty calories.
The book starts with a brief essay on how the body deals with carbohydrates, especially upon eating the first meal of the day, or, `breaking fast'. The long and the short of this story is that you are much better eating whole grains with protein and good fats rather than sugars and quickly digested starches. The remainder of the book is dedicated to making this option appealing.

By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Mollie Katzen's Sunlight Café, is a beautifully produced book with original art by the author, and interesting mini-articles at the beginning of each section. (Katzen also has nice introductions and incidental notes within the articles that make them fun to read.) Many recipes include variations that make the book full of possible recipes and combinations. I especially liked the two introductory chapters about breakfast: "Make Room in your Life for Breakfast," which includes a short look at breakfast around the world, and "Breakfast for Metabolic Health," which discusses how breakfast contributes to our overall diet. The book contains over 300 recipes with sections on breakfast beverages, "Vegetables for Breakfast" and a delicious-looking chapter on "Potatoes, Beans, Tempeh & Hashes." Katzen states that most of the recipes take less than 30 minutes to prepare, and many take less than fifteen.
Unfortunately, there is no nutritional information with the recipes, and only 3 1/2 pages on menu planning at the back of the book. Sunlight Café is also obviously designed for lacto-ovo vegetarians as it relies heavily on dairy and eggs, and many recipes are not suitable for vegan substitutions, although Katzen says you can always substitute soy milk for cow's milk. While there are vegan recipes in the book, they're not labeled, so vegans get the not unpleasant chore of wandering through the chapters soaking in all the interesting tidbits while picking out what recipes to prepare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Major inspiration October 28, 2002
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book, read it cover to cover--which is not something I typically do with cookbooks--and within the first three days of owning it had tried four of the recipes.
My breakfasts have been more varied and I've made a number of the dishes for use at other times of the day. I've also made items over the weekend for consumption during the weekday mornings. I think I've made more dishes based on this book in the short period I've owned it, than I have from most of my other cookbooks.
I've changed my techniques for making eggs and some other basics based on her recommendations too.
I was very inspired by this book and I think all of my recent cooking reflects it. I already had two other books by this author. I've been showing it to all of my friends and encouraging them to buy it too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Innovative ideas; terrific recipes; good writing December 19, 2002
Format:Hardcover
I never gave much thought to breakfast, but Mollie Katzen sure has! And she is her usual contagious self in this unusual new volume, as she shares hundreds of ideas and many, many simple recipes with healthy undertones and delicious overtones. And speaking of tone, hers is never dogmatic or preachy, just very informative (with interesting asides and anecdotes) and personal encouragement, helping us realize just how important it is to have something decent to eat as early in the day as possible, and sympathizing with how difficult that is for many of us. It would have been easy to write a breakfast/brunch book oriented specifically to leisurely weekend entertaining, and although this book covers that (a nice list of user-friendly menus appears in the back) it mostly focuses on the challenge of a good breakfast on busy weekdays. I've tried about 6 of the recipes, and they have all been delicious. Try the Chai Oatmeal and the Wild Rice & Quinoa Muffins with Dried Cranberries. I also loved the Breakfast Gingerbread and the Homemade Chocolate Chip Protein Bars. A winner all around, complete with lovely full-color art by the talented Ms. Katzen! A bargain at the price offered here (and even a bargain at full price)!
