The nutritional key is easy to understand symbols for three health-related aspects: Healthy Weight (meaning limited overall calories), High Fiber, and Healthy Heart (limited saturated fats). It makes it simple if you're looking for recipes for a particular diet. The breakdown doesn't stop there however, they also have the full breakdown, plus a "nutritional bonus" which is the vitamins that you'll receive from eating the prepared dish.
I made the Leek & Gruyere Quiche, which was "Healthy Weight" at 244 cal per serving. It was delicious and for a healthy quiche, didn't take longer to make than my own, somewhat less-healthy version. We all enjoyed it. It may be considered healthy weight since 1/8 of the pie was a serving, so portion control has something to do with it.
I'd venture to say that this is a great cookbook for adventurous and healthy foodies, but not specifically geared towards families feeding small children (see Better Homes and Gardens 365 Vegetarian Meals recipes for kid-meals). That's not to say EatingWell doesn't have some family-friendly recipes, because they do, but they incorporate a lot of herbs and flavors that might be too much for children.
My one wish is that they put a seasonal twist on this cookbook. They've got winter-type recipes next to ones with summer veggies. When you're looking for something to make, you've got to root thru recipes that you wouldn't even consider. Who wants to make Tofu Hot Pot in the summer, or a fresh tomato dish in winter?Read more ›
There are 9 pages of evidence why a vegetarian diet is better. Included recipes are; appetizers, salads, soups and stews, sandwiches, wraps and burgers, pizza and pasta, grains and beans, tofu, tempeh and seitan, eggs and dairy, casseroles, tarts and gratins, sides and desserts.
One of the major irritations is the key for the recipes is in the back of the book - why not put it in the front so we can know what we are looking at...healthy weight, high fiber, healthy heart, ready to eat in 45 minutes or less. There are 2 indexes, one dividing recipes into vegan, gluten-free, 30 minutes or less and a regular index
Pictures are included for some of the recipes, but it is sometimes confusing which is which when they are in the front of the recipe section.
Our family favorites have included pickled eggs, fettuccine with creamy mushroom sauce, and cranberry upside down cake.
This is a good book to add to your cookbook collection especially, of course, if you wish to have some vegetarian recipes that your family and friends might enjoy.
The variety of recipes is very good and addresses different taste palates. The cookbook is divided into sections: grains, beans, salads, pasta, vegetable side dishes, eggs & diary, tofu, etc. You can also search the index by recipe name or ingredient, I think this extremely convenient. Cookbooks that have only a recipe name index are not as useful. There is also nutritional information included with each recipe (calories, fat-percentage, protein, etc.), which many will find helpful. I've made a good number of the recipes and have found that the directions are very well written and clear and even those that don't cook much would be able to execute these recipes without much difficulty. But most importantly, the recipes are very tasty and I've really enjoyed almost everything I've prepared so far.
As the title indicates, most recipes can be prepared fairly quickly (around 30-45 minutes), a few do take a little longer, but cooking times are listed with every recipe. Overall, I think this book is well organized, has great presentation with many color photos and has excellent directions for both novice and experienced cooks.Read more ›
