Publisher Comments:

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 Crepes 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 Chevre 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

Moosewood comes through with another creative, healthy addition to my cookbook collection! Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health is all about flavorful, simple vegetarian and vegan recipes.

I started my exploration with Spinach Quesadillas. Once the spinach, onion, and green chile mixture is made you can keep it in the fridge and you are mere minutes away from a delicious, healthy dinner. I don't have kids but I can imagine this would be a great way to get them to eat spinach!
Next up was Savory Asparagus and Mushroom Bread Pudding. Warm and filling, it was perfect for the last of the cold weather. The feta gave it a nice salty note and it was great reheated for lunches during the week.
The Granola recipe isn't anything very unusual, though it does use less fat and sweetener than most granola recipes I've made. It didn't clump but stayed more the consistency of a muesli. My boyfriend loved it and declared it the best granola yet.
Most recently I tried the Pasta with Pistachio Lemon Pesto. Delicious! I really liked the light, bright flavors and even ended up spreading it on a pizza crust and topping with arugula and tomatoes.
Best of all none of these recipes took more than 30-45 min and all the ingredients were readily available in my local grocery store. This is a cookbook I will use often.
