Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health

More than 200 new vegetarian and vegan recipes for delicous and nutrient-rich dishes

I love this book for many reasons.  One of them is that I can find tasty recipes for the interesting greens and other vegetables that we get in our organic basket delivery.  It is full of wonderful recipes for breakfast, appetizers, sauces, eggs, salads, soups, sandwiches, burgers, stir-frys/sautes, tofu, casseroles, beans pasta, grains, raw food and desserts!


“Eat Your Greens…and your yellows and oranges, your blues and purples, and your blacks and reds and browns!

It’s a great time to eat well.  Farmer’s markets fill with local and organic vegetables are sprouting up everywhere, and supermarkets are spilling over with whole grain choices, bigger and better produce sections, and a variety of healthier convenience foods.  Cooking for both health and pleasure has made creating this, our twelfth cookbook, a wonderful experience.  What always remains fresh and constant is the joy we find in cooking and delight in eating.

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….

…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!”

  1. The original Moosewood Cookbook was so filled with artery clogging cheese and high test dairy that it was insane! I am so glad they are offering a different level of recipe now; we have to veganize ALL of the old recipes.
