A steaming bowl of soup with fresh bread and a green salad, a
tempting combo plate of crisp, complementary salads--these Daily
Specials have been staples of Moosewood''s ever-changing menu board
since the restaurant opened its doors more than twenty-five years
Over the years the creative chefs of the Moosewood Collective have
introduced literally thousands of new soups and as many salads, all
devised to showcase the fresh seasonal produce, vibrant ethnic
flavors, and meatless food products that form the core of their
cuisine. Now, for the first time, they have gathered the very best
offerings from their vast soup and salad repertoire, as well as the
ingenious extras that transform these simple dishes into
world-class meals. Here are classics like Very Creamy Vegetable
Chowder and Tuscan Bean Soup, as well as intriguing new creations
like Caribbean Sweet Potato Coconut Soup, Golden Gazpacho, and
Fennel Vichyssoise. Salads range from straightforward choices that
are easy to mix and match, such as Spinach with Cilantro Cashew
Dressing, Mexican Chickpea Salad, or Tunisian Carrot Salad, to
satisfying one-dish meals like Broiled Tofu & Sugar Snap Peas
or Persian Rice & Pistachio Salad. Each recipe is followed by
helpful suggestions for selecting dishes so that creating
well-balanced combo plates at home is a snap.
There are easy-to-use indexes of recipes by categories including
children''s favorites, quickly made, low-fat, low-carbohydrate, and
vegan dishes. And each recipe has a complete nutritional breakdown,
so it''s simple to create menus for those with special health or
dietary concerns. The section on transforming leftovers into
sprightly new dishes also makes Moosewood Restaurant Daily
Special a practical primer for those who want to make the
most of seasonal bounty.
Few foods are more comforting--or satisfying--than a good soup and
a well-made salad, and because many can be made ahead and served on
demand, they are perfectly suited to the way we eat and live today.
With more than 275 kitchen-tested recipes to fit any occasion,
Moosewood Restaurant Daily Special offers years''
worth of inspiration for Daily Specials every cook will be
delighted to serve.
