Motivated by the simple principle that eating more vegetables, fruits, and whole grains keeps people healthier longer, the Moosewood Collective presents this all-new collection of more than 200 recipes that make whole foods wholly delicious. Moosewood Restaurant''s cookbooks have long been an essential resource for creative recipes for home cooks, recipes that make mindful eating an unqualified pleasure. In this latest book, the Collective has carefully crafted recipes that celebrate local and environmentally sustainable food and that reflect the latest thinking on good nutrition.

From soups to desserts, the dishes in this book are distinctive, adventurous, and globally inspired. Including plenty of vegan, gluten-free, and raw food options, the book has something to please every taste. Polenta with Greens and Eggs or Whole Grain Pancakes will get the day started right; appetizers such as Chickpea Crêpes and Pineapple Salsa with Blueberries are festive for a casual gathering; and Southwestern Black Bean Burgers are a great choice for a cookout. Tofu, Leek, and Almond Stuffed Portabellas and Quinoa and Collard Leaf Dolmas are elegant choices for a more formal occasion. Desserts like Figs Baked with Chèvre and Pistachios, Chocolate Bark, and Sweet Potato Pie with Pecan-Oat Crust are naturally sweet and packed with nutrients. Each recipe comes with a detailed nutritional analysis as well as menu and serving suggestions. The Collective discusses everything from eating locally to the Glycemic Index, and the ideas and information will prove useful to both new vegetarians and those who grew up cooking with the Moosewood Restaurant.

Eating well feels good. Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health is all about cooking for pleasure and cooking for health. You can do both!

Read from the Book

Introduction The Moosewood Collective has written a dozen cookbooks filled with recipes for flavorful, interesting vegetarian food from soups to desserts. We''ve covered quick and easy meals and cooking for celebrations. One of our books is about the world of ethnic cuisines; another teaches you how to cook from your own kitchen garden. Many of our early recipes are loaded with cheese, and one of our most popular cookbooks is all about low-fat fare. Sometimes we think we''ve said everything we have to say, but then we find new ingredients, new cuisines, and new information, and ultimately we find we have new perspectives. Today we want freshness and integrity of ingredients. Our food must be attractive and delicious, but we also want it to contribute to good health. Really, we want it all. We read and hear a lot about nutrition. We are bombarded with information on food, and the media definition of healthful food changes from week to week. Bits of nutritional information can be blown out of proportion, taken out of context, or viewed in isolation without considering the complexity of interactions in the body. Sometimes studies are poorly interpreted in the media. Too much of what we learn comes from advertising. Sometimes it seems that we receive more nutritional advice (and some of it contradictory) than we can process. However, science continues to advance.
