Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Taylor's companion to her 1999 Healthy Table Cookbook proves that flavorful southwestern cooking can also be healthy, provided you live near a well-stocked grocery or health food store. Her offerings include standards such as hummus and guacamole in addition to mouthwatering, healthy takes on dishes like Spinach-Filled Quesadillas with a Black Bean Sauce, Portobello Mushroom Enchiladas and a Quinoa Pilaf in place of traditional Spanish rice. The accompanying photographs are gorgeous, and the dishes carry a great deal of flavor despite the exclusion of sour cream, butter and other artery-clogging, waistline-expanding ingredients. Unfortunately, what the book lacks in calories it more than makes up for in preparation time: Black Bean Soup, while flavorful, has 22 ingredients, with another seven required for the garnish; the Pinon-Crusted Chile Rellenos employ a staggering 37 ingredients. Not all dishes require that much measuring, chopping and dicing (she also offers suggestions for leftover chicken and salmon) but the prep time can be considerable, as can the shopping-virtually all the recipes employ a less-than-common ingredient such as key lime juice (which she uses like Emeril uses garlic), umeboshi pickled plum paste or Stevia extract. That said, those looking for a healthier take on southwestern cuisine who don't mind a bit of effort are sure to find some new favorites here.

I bought The Healthy Southwest Table cookbook on my way home from our trip to the Grand Canyon and I just have to share.
I don't follow recipes very often but I have made 3 (4?) from the book in less than a week and every single one of them has been delicious. The recipes are easy to follow, sensible portion sizes while still easy to scale up or down and are tastytastytasty.
A significant number of the recipes are vegetarian and as far as I can see it's easy to convert the ones that aren't either by substitution or omission.

I ordered this cookbook as a special gift for a friend who is into Southwest cooking. But upon receipt of book, I decided this was something I had to have and kept it for myself. I have been thoroughly enjoying all the recipes and have experimented with quite a few. It is a wonderful cookbook filled with some great, healthful ideas.

Flavors of the Southwest! The recipes make everything taste just a bit fresher, more vibrant. I'm incorporating some new spices and flavors into my kitchen based on this very informative book. I positively recommend it.

I stumbled across this cookbook at the Sonoran Desert Museum in Tucson. And what a find! This is a great cookbook with lots of wonderful, healthy recipes. None are difficult, but some are worthy of a dinner party. If you like salmon, there are quite a few good recipes I here. I collect cookbooks and this has quickly become a favorite of mine.
