Eatingwell Fast & Flavorful Meatless Meals: 150 Healthy Recipes Everyone Will Love
Eatingwell Fast & Flavorful Meatless Meals
150 Healthy Recipes Everyone Will Love
Hardcover      ISBN: 0881509434

The American diet is changing--for the better--as more and more Americans are opting to go vegetarian at least a few times a week. Meatless Mondays, a nonprofit initiative launched in association with Johns Hopkins School of Public Health in 2003 to reduce meat consumption to improve personal health and the health of the planet, has attracted a growing fan base. It has garnered the support of dozens of universities and restaurants, entire cities (San Francisco, CA, and Ghent, Belgium), and celebrities, including Mario Batali, Al Gore, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

EatingWell Fast & Flavorful Meatless Meals reports on the latest science, which shows that eliminating meat--even a few times a week--can have a host of health benefits, including improved blood pressure, decreased risk of heart disease, lowered cholesterol, and better weight control. Just replacing meat with starchy refined carbs, cream, and cheese may be "eating vegetarian"--but it's not eating healthfully. EatingWell shows you how to plan a well-balanced vegetarian diet full of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and lean sources of protein like tofu, beans, and eggs. Plus you'll find out why eating less meat is lighter on the environment and your budget.

This cookbook solves the problem of how to make a healthy vegetarian meal everyone in the family--from steak-lovers to dieters--will love. For nearly 20 years, every issue of EatingWell Magazine, whose motto is "Where Good Taste Meets Good Health," has featured healthy, satisfying, meatless meals, such as Zesty Wheat Berry-Black Bean Chili, Mediterranean Baked Penne, and Tomato-Corn Pie. The best of those recipes can now be found in one place: EatingWell Fast & Flavorful Meatless Meals.

This cookbook dishes up 150 recipes for soups and stews, salads, sandwiches, pasta, and pizza. ere are special tarts, gratins, and other impressive dishes for entertaining--and plenty of delicious appetizers, wonderful side dishes, and divine desserts to round out all your menus. And like all the recipes from award-winning EatingWell Magazine, the healthy recipes in this book really work. Most can be prepared in less than 45 minutes and use simple, easy-to-find ingredients. And they have all been tested multiple times by the expert cooks in the EatingWell Test Kitchen. With recipes like these, you'll never miss the meat.

Mr. Wilkinson's Vegetables: A Cookbook to Celebrate the Garden
Mr. Wilkinson's Vegetables
A Cookbook to Celebrate the Garden
1st Edition    Hardcover      ISBN: 157912934x
This lush, creative cookbook celebrates the flavor and versatility of vegetables by bringing them to the center of the table in more than 80 delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes.

Too many of us let vegetables play second fiddle in meals that center on protein or carbs. For chef Matt Wilkinson, vegetables come first. He builds his dishes around vegetables that are in season, when they taste the best, are most affordable, and most readily available.

The recipes in Mr. Wilkinson's Vegetables range from simple salads such as Brussels Sprout Leaves, Mozzarella, and Anchovies, or Roasted Cucumber, Quinoa, Freekah, and Herbs, to hearty dishes such as Soft Parmesan Polenta with Crab and Mussels, or Braised Eggplant, Tomato, and Meatballs. They also include satisfying snacks like Irene's Tzatziki, or Smoked Tomato and Goat's Curd Goug (c)s, as well as desserts, such as Carrot Cake with Grated Carrot, Preserved Lemon, Raisin, and Ginger Pickle, or Creamed Rice Pudding. While many of the 80 plus dishes will appeal to vegetarians, there are plenty that incorporate meat. In all of them, Mr. Wilkinson's vegetables are the stars.

With beautiful photography and vintage illustrations, the book is both timely and timeless.

"I woke up in Melbourne and was whisked away to a studio where there was a make-shift kitchen with a couple guys putting together a meal of the most wonderful vegetables I had ever seen. There was no restaurant, no name. And that is where I met Matt and that chance meal in a warehouse behind a back alley is where one of my most special food memories remain. And now you can all see what I saw that night and maybe cook your own chance meal by Mr. Wilkinson." -- Roy Choi, chef Kogi Taco, Food & Wine Best New Chef 2010
