Product Description

About the Author

Julie Van Rosendaal is in high demand for her knowledge and love of good food. She is the food correspondent for The Calgary Eyeopener on CBC Radio One, co-host of TV 's It's Just Food, food editor of Parents Canada magazine, and a regular contributor to newspapers, magazines and her award-winning food blog, www.dinnerwithjulie.com. She is known for her expertise in making health-conscious versions of high fat foods-a change in lifestyle that helped her lose 165 pounds.

Sue Duncan grew up in Calgary, cooking and eating at every opportunity with her best friend Julie. She now lives with her husband and daughter in the Okanagan Valley, where she acquires far too much produce at the farmer's market but manages to eat it all anyway.

Beans. We know them well, but as familiar as they are, a huge number of us don't have a clue what to do with them once we get them home to our kitchens. It's amazing that legumes, which have been around for centuries and are present in nearly every cuisine around the world, are still such a mystery even to skilled cooks. The process of soaking and simmering seems daunting, even though it requires even less culinary skill than cooking rice or pasta. All legumes-beans, chickpeas, peas, and lentils-are high in fibre, protein, and other essential nutrients. They're low in fat, cholesterol-free, versatile, environmentally friendly, and cheap. They could very well be the world's most perfect food.

Format: Paperback
I've made three recipes in the last 2 weeks: the best tomato soup (it has 3 kinds of tomatoes, lentils and oatmeal) I've ever made, mulligatawny and sweet potato, lentil and spinach curry. I've also made the carrot sweet potato curried soup before (Julie posted it on her blog). Everything we tried at the book launch was also very good (who knew I liked parsnips? Especially when they're roasted and made into a soup!).

I cooked a big pot of black beans yesterday on the stove (no presoaking required) and a crock pot full of chickpeas, too. Divided them up and put them in the freezer.

The book is full of great tips and recipes using ingredients you probably have in your cupboard. These are healthy recipes that don't skimp on flavour! I don't think you can go wrong with this book!

I love cookbooks and I'm usually happy if I find two or three recipes in each one that my family loves. I was hoping this would be a good choice as my family loves beans. I've now made several recipes from this book and each one was a hit. My kids actually had an argument over who was going to get to eat the last of the roasted beet salad. The black bean brownies are absolutely yummy. I've also made two of the soups, the blackeyed pea and kale soup and the curried sweet potato soup, and both were delicious. The chickpea masala sandwiches were another big hit. I love that the ingredients are fresh and the steps are simple, yet each recipe has amazing flavor and texture. Best cookbook I've bought in a while!

I bought this after seeing the authors on TV. It was well worth the wait. We have made at least 6-7 recipes and loved everyone, especially the Thai Chicken. I had to buy my two daughters this book as well just so I could keep mine at home. And yes it was well worth waiting for. We are all trying to pur more grains and beans into our diet and this book makes it really easy. My sister as well has ordered this book. Thanks for this great addition.

I have been looking for some time for ways to incorporate grains and legumes into weekly meals that are simple, easy to prepare, and delicious. I have found the book, and one of the best parts is that it is written by Canadian girls. I've made three or four things since acquiring this book, and they're all delicious, healthy, and easy to prepare.

I live alone and work full time. The soup recipes are easy to prepare and GREAT for my 12 hour shifts. I have been struggling to maintain a healthy diet at times because there is so much junk at work to grab quickly.

I heard about this cookbook through a fave review in the Georgia Straight, our alternate newspaper. By the time my turn at a reserve copy came up at the Public Library, it was over a year since I'd read about it. The recipes were worth it, though! After trying a few, even my husband (who prefers blander, smoother, softer side dishes, accenting the meat, not the other way around) was sure we should buy it, too. Most recipes don't contain meat, and those that do, use it to accent the beans and grains--both are included in most recipes, and the ones I have tried so far are delicious and easy to prepare, although the preparation time estimates seem a little optimistic.

My only criticisms would be the book's unwieldy size and binding--it's hard to keep open for reference as you cook, so I may follow advice I've heard for knitting books--have it rebound with a spiral binding.

So far so good. Have tried 3-4 recipes with my family, and they have been a hit! I am sure the rest will be too, as I am an avid follower of "Dinner with Julie" and her recipes are always, easy, delicious and popular with my 2 teenage sons.
