Cooking for Health has loads of nutritional information at the beginning of the book. It's followed by cooking methods, then the recipes. It's your typical all-around cookbook with chapters on: Breakfast, Eggs, Appetizers, Salads, Soups, Sandwiches, Burgers, Stir-frys & Sautes, Tofu, Savory Pastries, Beans, Pasta, Stews, Veganism, Raw Foods, Grains, Side Veggies and Desserts.
I cook a lot, and own a selection of quality cookbooks. After buying this cookbook and making some of the recipes, I now use this as my Go-To cookbook. I've made the Savory Asparagus and Mushroom Bread Pudding, Pasta with Broccoli and Thai Red Curry. They all came out so delicious, my husband and I loved them. The Asparagus and Mushroom bread pudding was only 222 calories per serving too! It certainly didn't taste like a low calorie dish, and I can't wait to make it again.
My favorite things about the Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health are the "extras" given for each recipe. They describe each recipe at the beginning, plus give variations, helpful suggestions, and serving ideas. The serving ideas can be food-related, or enhance the visual presentation.
This is the kind of cookbook you can take to bed and read, or just start cooking with. The ingredient lists are not overly lenghty, nor are the instructions for cooking.Read more ›
What I really like about this cookbook goes beyond the recipes (and I'll get to that next). The layout, often forgotten by cookbook publishers, is an important part about using cookbooks. Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health goes a very long way toward making cooking easier for its readers. The ingredients are set aside in a pleasingly shaded box and the ingredients themselves are bolded. These are important elements for folks who may have the book resting in another part of kitchen while cooking and have to run back and forth to the book to see what comes next.
Importantly, the ingredients are presented in the order in which they are used. Don't laugh! Some books forget about this and make it hard for cooks to deal. Also, very important, most of the recipes are very simple, and the directions are limited to one side of an open spread. I find that very useful. One of the design flaws that bugs me the most is running the recipe to a turned page (especially during a portion of the recipe that requires care).
The recipe pages also include the very handy nutritional information (calories, serving size, fat, etc.). Additionally, swap-outs and other recipe suggestions are included.
OK, now for the recipe info. I tried out the Apple-Blueberry Crumble on page 316.Read more ›
I follow a whole-foods approach to cooking and eating, with lots of fresh veggies, whole grains, legumes, and other natural proteins (tofu and tempeh). This particular Moosewood iteration, Cooking for Health, is a great fit for me because it is entirely whole foods-based and very healthy. There are no faux meats or heavy cheese sauces, but there are tons of veggies, which I love. I feel great eating the recipes out of this cookbook and never have to compromise on nutritive quality, because it incorporates foods that I already eat in ways that are inspired, wholesome, and delectable. The recipes let the true flavors of the food shine through while being complimented -- not overpowered -- by spices, herbs, and aromatics. Additionally, many of the recipes in this cookbook take 30-35 minutes, with most clocking in at an hour or less.
Here are the recipes I've made:
