Moosewood Restaurant Soups and Stews

Author:

Who knew you could be so creative with soups? This cookbook actually comes as a card deck with a section for soups and then a section for sides like salads or breads that fit well with the soup you've chosen. We don't use the soups too often in Florida, but salads and breads certainly have a place in our kitchen.

I've made a number of recipes from this book. Some are quite unusual, but all are delicious. It requires a bit more creativity of the taste buds than Moosewood Cooks at Home, but it's a great way to learn how to eat a veggie you don't normally like. I must point out "Simple" does not always mean quick. It just means easy to follow. Some recipes, however, are very speedy. Some take a little more time, but less attention. You can decide what works best for you.

Well received and well reviewed, this book has amazing simple recipes on the lighter side and offers well balanced menus. It's also a book perfect for pescatarians. This was one of my first cookbooks and has been well used ever since. I'd say it's definitely easy for when you're just starting out in the kitchen and offers traditional recipes with a twist (like corn bread/scones or sauteed bananas). It's my go-to cookbook when I don't know what to make.

Although this is mainly a weight loss book, it shows lots of wisdom in planning what you eat. There are many recipes, including the ones that inspired me to make my own hommus and to learn to make quinoa and couscous. There is also a 21-day plan for what to eat for meals and snacks using the recipes for monitoring weight and controlling heart health.

An excellent approach to a healthy plant-based lifestyle. My favorite aspect is listing the top five recommended fruits and vegetables for highest fiber and additional nutrients. This is not a cookbook, but a book that encourages you to see the power in carefully planning your dinner plate and learning how to not starve yourself to lose weight.

Vegetarian 5-ingredient Gourmet

This is a simple cookbook for people who are afraid of the kitchen or for people who live on a tight budget and need to limit the ingredients in meals. I first started mixing my sweet and white potatoes based on recommendations from this book. It's also where I got the "burr under my saddle" to start baking instead of frying items, like french fries. It also offers opportunity for vegan or lacto-ovo substitutions.

This is such an entertaining cookbook. It's the only one I've read cover-to-cover. Even friends who don't like to cook enjoy reading the quotes and stories in this book. I love it's widom and yummy recipes. Naturally, this book isn't just for vegetarians, but it isn't too hard to love the recipes that are vegetarian and to adapt others to meet your needs.
