I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys tasty healthy food that is quick to prepare.
The book is divided into chapters as follows: Snacks & Nibbles; Starters; Salads; Soups; Weekday Dinners in under 1 hour; Weekend Cooking; Puds.
Snacks include oven-dried cherry tomatoes with lemon-oregano salt, pickled vegetables and Turkish salsa with pitta crisps. Starters range from sashimi tuna, to steamed asparagus with an egg vinaigrette, beef & mango spring rolls, vegetable & spring onion pancakes with a chilli dipping sauce, vegetable yakitori, steamed globe artichokes with lemon & oregano dipping oil & spicy scallops with avocado & mango salsa to name a few. The salads are more in the line of main course salads such as palm heart with orange, prawns & avocado; Vietnamese chicken salad; potato & smoked trout. There are some really lovely soups of which my favourites are celeriac & roasted garlic; chipotle black bean with lime-pickled onion; tomato & chickpea with cumin; & caramelised onion & fennel.
There is a good range of main courses including a lovely vegetarian selection (although I doubt that the recipe involving squid ink pasta will go down well with true vegetarians).Read more ›
So far I've been introduced to some amazing ingredients and am working my way through the rest of recipes. My family and friends have been delighted with all the food so far. I'd definitely recommend this book!
Through Jennifer's understanding of winning flavour combinations and ingredients from all around the world (fresh aromatic herbs, pungent spice pastes and zingy dressings) it is easy to eat low fat food and find healthier ways to cook it. A ready supply of tuperware is a must however - even my boyfriend has loved making the salads and soups for packed lunches. Try the filling Chipotle black bean soup with lime-pickled onion and crisp baked tortillas or Potato, smoked trout and dill salad with a caper and whole grain mustard dressing.
As well as soups and salads there are also sections to take you right through the week for snacks, starters, weekday dinners in under an hour, weekend cooking (for when you have more time and want to impress) and skinny puddings. Stuffed chicken breasts with spinach, cinnamon and dates has become a firm favourite as have Sizzling Korean-style beef with sesame seeds and Vietnamese stir-fried fish with dill and rice noodles, to name but a few. All the recipes have great little tips explaining what can be prepped ahead, as well as the all important skinny 'sell' to help you understand the healthy thinking behind the recipe. Also useful is the definitive guide to stir-frying which, once mastered, is the prefect healthy fast-food option.
This is the kind of easy, delicious and healthy food we should all be eating on a daily basis...like Jennifer says, diet is a dirty word!
