The Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health

More Than 200 New Vegetarian and Vegan Recipes for Delicious and Nutrient-Rich Dishes

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


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 Crêpes 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 Chèvre 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!

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 05, 2009 – Long before ecofriendly vegetarian eating became trendy, the Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca, N.Y., wowed diners with delicious meat-free, organic-focused fare. The 12th cookbook inspired by the restaurant, dedicated to organic farmers and small farmers the world over, including backyard and balcony gardeners, focuses on dishes filled with superhealthy ingredients and loaded with flavor. An apricot orange twist smoothie; pineapple salsa with blueberries; sweet potato soup; apple and chipotle soup; vegetables in spicy lemongrass-tamarind sauce; and savory asparagus and mushroom bread pudding are as appealing as they are good for you (as the nutrition info included with each recipe and the sidebars about antioxidants, food allergies and other foodie health topics suggest). The recipes work beautifully and feel approachable and doable, and the results taste so terrific that meat and unhealthy ingredients are scarcely missed. Even the low-in-fat-and-refined-sugars sweets honeydew and basil popsicles, and figs baked with chevre and pistachios will hit the mark with dessert connoisseurs.
