I must completely disagree with the other reviewers on this one. I bought this book because I borrowed it from the library and loved it so much, I had to have a copy.
Why do I love it?
It has simple, quick and foolproof recipes for dishes that are light, low calorie and fat and use low GI ingredients like Lentils, Beans, Barley, fish, tofu, lean meats, (even liver), quick and foolproof bread and muffin mixes. Admittedly, this United Kingdom cookbook is not for every american kitchen. There is no instant anything, reduced fat mac 'n cheese, or healthy fried chicken. There are chunky soups filled with beans and vegetables, kebabs, new ways to eat tofu, baked rice pudding, a lot of fresh fruit variations, mediterranean platters and snacks. Want to eat eggplant -- not breaded and fried with parmesan cheese -- but in chunky spicy salsas, a filling asian inspired stir-fry and creamy, low fat pasta sauce?
Love it and highly recommend it if you like global cuisines.
The South African seed bread is an absolute winner. Easy, high in protein and very low in fat and sugar. My family can't get enough of it and it takes under 10 minutes to prepare.
