WHY IT’S LIGHT This Italian restaurant standby turns virtuous with baked (instead of fried) eggplant and a healthier béchamel made from skim milk, which is then combined with some marinara sauce. Using less cheese also helps; here, the two cheeses are sprinkled only on top, rather than in each layer.
1 large Italian eggplant (2 pounds), sliced ½ inch thick crosswise
1 tablespoon olive oil
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 cup skim milk
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup homemade or store-bought marinara sauce
½ cup grated part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1. Preheat oven to 450°F, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Arrange eggplant in a single layer on two rimmed baking sheets. Brush eggplant on both sides with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Bake until golden brown and very tender, 20 to 25 minutes, turning slices and rotating sheets from top to bottom and front to back half-way through.

2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, whisk together ¼ cup milk, the flour, and garlic. Gradually whisk in remaining ¾ cup milk and ½ cup marinara sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, and cook until sauce has thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.

3. Spread ¼ cup marinara sauce in the bottom of a shallow 2-quart baking dish. Alternate layers of baked eggplant with milk sauce. Dollop with remaining ¼ cup marinara sauce. Top evenly with mozzarella and Parmesan. Bake on upper rack until cheese is browned and sauce is bubbling, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately.

Format: Paperback
This is a book you grab, flip through for inspiration and generally find that you already have what you need so you get cooking, then and there, with consistently great results. I've had this book for over a year now (in fact I have all three of the Everyday Food books--all great), and it has become my go-to book for 'what are we having for dinner tonight?'. All the recipies are straightforward and so far almost all have been delicious, the food appeals to children and adults alike (few weird ingredients though I'd like more ethnic cooking), and the illustrations and simple directions mean that anyone can do it, right now. I have lots of cookbooks that I enjoy reading, but they just don't get me into the kitchen (too many steps or special ingredients or low confidence that it will appeal to the whole family).

Finally a note on the "light" title--while I don't generally like "low fat" cook books (I'm just not willing to trade off flavor), with this collection you'd never know. Highly recommended.

I have never cooked so many recipes out of a cooking book in so little time. Since purchasing this book about a month ago, we have almost completed the "Winter" section of the book and can't wait for Spring to arrive! That's right; the book is divided into seasons! What a great concept.

I love that you are always certain that the meal you are cooking is light and healthy. The recipes are very simple and usually require ingredients that you would either use regularly or can obtain easily!

I received this book as I gift and I think it's great! I've tried a lot of low cal recipes and let's be honest, they aren't always delicious. 90% off the recipes I've tried from this book are fantastic! I recommend it to friends and I even picked one up for my mom! Definitely worth purchasing!

HASH(0xaa38766c) out of 5 stars Light, Smart and Beautiful. Dec 28 2011
By D. L. Jennings - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This Cookbook is just what we have come to expect of Martha's New line of Books. Filled with Pictures that make my mouth water, this book is PACKED with easy to prepare recipes that will please a variety of pallets. There is a Picture for every recipe and a little Hint, Fact or Substitution as well. Some pages are divided into four parts each showing a different way to prepare a recipe, for example, there is Slaw prepared four different ways. One thing that delighted me as a baker was to see so many different desserts, each presented in a way that "diet" need not even be mentioned. I see SEVERAL recipes that could be doubled and taken to Church Dinners, as well as Recipes that you could serve at a Dinner Party and no one would ever know they were light. Another plus to this book is it's division by Seasons. What a smart thing to do with a light cookbook, seeing how so much of it is fresh ingredients that you will be assured are in season since it is divide as such. If you are already a subscriber to EVERYDAY FOOD you will recognize some of the recipes but don't let that stop you, because this book is a Treasure Trove of Beautiful, Light Cooking.

HASH(0xa9c3bb94) out of 5 stars Wonderful Cookbook Jan. 25 2012
By J. Haupt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I cannot say enough good things about this cookbook. It is exactly what I've been wanting: fast, nutritious recipes that are not meat-heavy and include a wide variety of vegetables. It has bright pictures, simple instructions, short ingredient lists, and good clear information. There are more vegetarian recipes than in the previous books in this series, more fish recipes, and in general a greater emphasis on vegetables. If you are looking to improve your eating by going leaner, or edging toward meatlessness without going all the way--or, like me, cooking for a mixed household of meat eaters and vegetarians--this is a great book. Everything I've made from it is delicious, too.

HASH(0xa9c25d20) out of 5 stars Great cookbook! Jan. 1 2012
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am surprised to find a cookbook that I would actually make about 98% of the recipes in it! I made the chicken enchiladas tonight and they were so good. They had a kick to them so you didn't know it was a light recipe! I would definitely recommend this cookbook.

HASH(0xa9c27ae0) out of 5 stars A Good Go-To Cookbook! Feb. 23 2012
By Janneke Bogyo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've made a number of the dishes in this book and have marked many more I want to try. I try to eat healthy and this book has a nice wide variety of dishes I've never seen in other books. I did the bok choy recipe and loved it. Then I tried the shredded brussels sprouts which were also terrific. I also made a few of the chicken dishes and the soy glazed tofu with carrots. I've loved them all. My only problem with the book is the way it's organized. It's done by seasons rather than by categories such as: vegetables, poultry, etc. Since I live in Florida, there really isn't much "winter" and finding recipes seems a bit trickier this way. I ended up just going through the whole book and putting small sticky notes on pages with recipes I wanted to try. I would also say that I have no children living at home anymore but I don't think a lot of the recipes are necessarily child-friendly unless the kids are used to really healthy foods. I hope to try some of them on my grandchildren and maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised. But for me, this book is a real winner.

By BWC - Published on Amazon.com

I've made a handful of these recipes in the two weeks since receiving it and I've loved each recipe that I've tried. The lighter chili, with chocolate, was delish!
Simple, uncomplicated meals! Easy to shop for and easy to eat! Bon appetit!
