Book Description

6 Jan 2011
Falling in the category of bestselling, vegan chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz's weight-loss cookbook features 100 recipes that are low fat, low-calorie, generous in portion size, and awesomely delicious. Is vegan food healthy (because it's free of animal products)? Or is it unhealthy? Aren't you missing out on some vitamins? Can you really lose weight on a vegan diet? Or are vegans actually anorexic? (All they eat is lettuce)! Finally, in "Appetite for Reduction", there's a cookbook that busts the myths about veganism, diets, getting skinny, and staying healthy, not to mention the best soundtrack for rocking out in your kitchen. Isa Chandra Moskowitz is known for making groundbreaking strides in vegan cooking, proving that going vegan doesn't mean sacrificing flavour. But after years of perfecting cupcake and cookie recipes, she wanted to lose weight. In "Appetite For Reduction", Moscowitz teams up with a top nutritionist to create 100 delicious, big-portion recipes - from Spinach Lasagna to Manhattan Glam Chowder - that are fewer than 400 calories per serving, low in fat and sugar, and high in fiber. Best of all, a healthy dinner can be on your table in under forty-five minutes.

Product Description

Review

"This is a vegan diet book, but forget your preconceptions and look at the food. Isa is an amazing cook - her recipes are delicious and written for people who want to lose weight, but not their enjoyment of food... Her book is worth buying for the salad dressings alone."
--BBC Good Food Magazine

"Appetite for Reduction is a collection of delicious-sounding, nutrient-dense, low-fat recipes designed to help with weight loss and, just as importantly, taste good!... If you're aiming to lose weight or just eat healthily, but still enjoy food, this is the book for you."
--Vegan

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW - Isa Chandra gets better and better 27 July 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've already got a couple of Isa's books - and while the recipes are good,the layout and cross referencing drives me nuts. However the layout on this one is clean, and the cross referencing is minimal. The Hummus recipe is one of the best i've ever tasted (how can anyone get hummus wrong I hear people cry - well I have!), and the red wine and kalamata tempeh (I made it with seitan) is delish. Having the calorie count per serving really helps too. Only point to note is that this is an American cookbook, and needs some translation for UK users - so a tablespoon is a uk dessert spoon, arugula is rocket leaves, cilantro is coriander, shortening is cookeen or trex and canola oil is rapeseed oil. The cookipedia web site is a useful reference for translating.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last a 'Normal' vegan cookery book 20 Mar 2011
By Mrs. Gail Brewster VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is so refreshing to find a vegan cookery book that uses 'normal' ingredients and gives sensible honest advice. I love this book. I am a fairly new vegetarian and want to go a step further and become vegan. The money I have wasted on so called 'vegan cookery books' doesn't bear thinking about and none of them have inspired me to take the next step. Isa's book is wonderfully refreshing. There are of course American names for some of the ingredients but once you've sussed that cilantro is corriander, escarole is endive, sriracha is hot chilli sauce and kasha is buckwheat then you've basically cracked it. The recipes are dilicious and are guided as Gluten-free, Soy-free and under 30 minutes which helps when you want something quick and easy to make. You don't even notice that the recipes are all low fat because they are really tasty.
I can thoroughly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Falafels are fab! 21 Sep 2012
By pixie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was told about this book by a friend on the forum and ordered it even though I am not a veggie or a vegan. I tried the falafels and they are really good. They are baked and I have tried lots of different recipes but none worth trying again..cardboard comes to mind. These on the other hand were delicious.
As the book is American I thought the ingredients would be hard to find...not so.
I would say if you like the odd vegetarian meal or feel that you should have more meatfree days then give this book a whirl..nothing boring or lettuce leaf about it!
I am going to try the sweet potato biscuits next...more like our savoury scone by the picture, and then caulipots....

5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous - easy and tasty 24 April 2012
By Belinda
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
bought this last year as I felt like dipping into the world of vegan cooking. I have loved browsing through it and everything I have cooked, I would cook again. I have just made the Eggplant Dengaku and had it with rice - delish. For those who think some ingredients are repeated too often, just adjust and use the base as a template. The forty clove chickpea and broccoli is another favourite. A great addition to anyone's kitchen. I think this will be my vegan Delia...! Thanks Isa.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious and quick vegan recipes. Love. 8 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback
This book is a brilliant. I already have several of Isa's cookbooks but I had some reservations about low fat cooking, thinking it might be bland or a bit 70s boiled lentil-y vegan. However, everything I have made from the book has been super tasty and filling. The author states at the beginning that the recipes are designed for weeknight cooking and that they are pretty fast to make, I'm not the most amazing cook in the world but with this book I have been cooking when I get home from work. I love Isa's commentary and the hints and tips throughout the book. Highly recommended!

By Helen B
Format:Paperback
Like other reviewers I too have been glad to find a book that uses easy to find ingredients and meals that you can prepare in 30 mins or less. If you have a bit of extra time (marinating etc) then there are options for this too. The only downside would be for some the lack of photos for each recipe (this seems to be the norm for many US cook books) but it is only a tiny downside and didn't spoil the book for me personally.

At the beginning of each chapter Isa Chandra has written some useful tips and suggestions which are also amusing and informative.

Being a bit of a spice lover there is plenty in this book for me to try with dishes from around the globe. Just make sure that you do a quick google for an alternative to some US names eg Eggplant - Aubergine / Collards - Spring Greens / Yams - Sweet Potatoes etc etc.

Another book I will return to on a regular basis as I improve my vegan repertoire of dishes.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...and I'm not even a vegan! 15 Jun 2013
By L.H.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I am just a shadow of my former self and everyone's whispering "if anything, she's got TOO skinny", this book will be the reason why. I'm not even vegan, I just figured that maybe eating less animal might be a semi-decent way to lose some weight without trying too hard, and lo and behold - I was right! The recipes here are scrumptious, and that's not even an exaggeration. I'm yet to make a duff one, and I must have cooked half the book by now. Hottie Beans & Greens and Mango BBQ Beans are both amazing and now weeknight staples in my house, with big steamy spoonfuls dumped over baked sweet potato. Black-bean, Zucchini & Olive Tacos are as good as everyone else who's reviewed the book tells you they will be (and that's far better than I was expecting - delicious, basically). I also really loved the Carribean Curried Black-Eyed Peas with Plantain (def worth making the extra effort to find the plantain - it makes it), as well as the Canellini & Mushroom Paprikas, Miso Udon Stir-fry, Upside Down Lentil Shepherds Pie, Eggplant Provencal, Kidney Bean and Butternut Jamba Stew, Aubergine Chilli Bean Mole - there's so many great dinners in here and they're all quick, cheap and really good for you. Many of the recipes even possess that most magical property of tasting even better reheated next day than they did fresh, and that's about the highest praise I can give out. Yes, more pictures would be nice, yes, there are many Americanisms, but to get hung up on these tiny details would be to miss out on one of the best cookbooks I own.
