Cookbook Review: Moosewood Cooking for Health

Posted on Jun 11, 2013

Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health 9781416548874


I bought this for my mother once, and I borrow it every change I have. (Ok, I know, I should just buy my own.) It’s a wonderful collection of vegetarian and vegan recipes. Unlike a lot of cookbooks, it doesn’t have any photographs, so you really get a lot of recipes jammed into the 300+ pages.  It’s the perfect kind of all-around healthy cookbook to have on hand. Plus it also has a lot of essays about fats/oils, eggs, soy and so on. And it has a moose on the cover. Need I say more?

Some recipe examples (many of which I have yet to try but will):
Whole Wheat Banana Berry Muffins (I have tried these and they are wonderful)
Avocado Citrus Dressing
Vegan Cornbread
Greek Tomato-Yogurt Soup
Savory Mushroom and Asparagus Bread Pudding (Next on my list)
Chocolate Bark

And really, that’s a very tiny sample. It has over 300 pages of recipes.
