A Note from the Author, Akhtar Nawab
My story—the one about an Indian kid from Kentucky who ends up becoming a classically trained chef known for American, Mexican, Italian and, of all things, healthy cooking—is kind of complicated. But what my journey has lacked in predictability it has made up for with passion and learning and lots of cooking.
I’ve taken my culinary training and applied it to all of the cuisines I cook, which run the gamut from Indian and Mexican to Italian and American. As a dad, I also cook for my daughter and her friends, some of whom can be picky, so I have become adept at creating recipes that appeal across the board, for all types of eaters.
My hope is that once you’ve had time to cook your way through most of these recipes, you’ll be able to easily and joyfully cook food that is intensely delicious and overwhelmingly healthful. You’ll hopefully have a lot more energy, and feel better about what you are feeding yourself and your family—food that’s good for you!
Lamb Salad with Guajillo Chile and Paleo 1000 Island Dressing
Gluten Free, Dairy Free
Lamb may not be a traditional salad protein, but I love the richness of the meat with the sweetness and crispness of the lettuces and the Paleo 1000 Island Dressing. This recipe requires that you have leftover lamb in the house, so I’d plan on making this salad the day after you’ve served the Roast Lamb Shoulder with Olive Veracruzana.
Add the lettuces, apple, bell pepper, and Roast Lamb Shoulder to a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, add the dressing, then add the beets and mix well. Add more dressing and adjust the seasoning if you’d like. Serve immediately.
- 10 cups [200 g] spinach, radicchio, and butter leaf lettuces, packed
- ½ apple, thinly sliced
- ½ red bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 8 oz [230 g] Roast Lamb Shoulder
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- ¼ cup [60 ml] Paleo 1000 Island Dressing
- 2 small red beets, peeled and shaved on a mandoline or thinly by hand
Akhtar Nawab proved to me that healthy food doesn't have to be bland and flavorless. It doesn't have to be boring. He's infused his recipes with a rich combination of spices and flavors that reflect his Indian heritage and diverse culinary background. I immediately fell in love with his vision of food that is good for you while also tasting delicious." - Bobbi Brown, from the foreword
I can't wait to make all these beautiful dishes! Akhtar can masterfully cook anything. Good for You is a thoughtful collection of modern, delicious recipes full of flavor and punch, born of Akhtar's vast and varied career. This book teaches us to be good to ourselves while celebrating great ingredients and rich culinary traditions. Keep it close, use it often.
-Loretta Keller, chef and restaurateur, San Francisco
