Practical and Healthy Recipes Oct. 24 2010
By Joe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a fan of Ms. Shulman's recipes from the NY Times. My wife and I have always been impressed with the simplicity and healthiness of the ingredients. While we are not vegetarians, the recipes in this book are meatless, but some use fish. For want of a better description, they tend to be Mediterranean in style. I recommend especially the red beet with Greek yogurt recipe. We have found the yogurt sauce, which is heavily flavored with fresh garlic and dill, to be useful on many other veggies and even as a spread of its own. It can be kept safely in the refrigerator for several days. I recommend this book to anyone interested in healthy and easy to prepare dishes.

Great to have NYT recipes in one location Oct. 12 2010
By Tashi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed a number of Ms. Shulman's recipes in the New York Times, and that prompted the book purchase. After a quick read-through, there seem to be a number of typo's. In the first recipe I tried for carrot salad, the ingredient list calls for 2 TBS olive or canola oil followed by 2 TBS olive oil... And In the couscous section, the pointer to more couscous recipes is labeled "artichoke" recipes. Aside from poor editing, I plan to try many of the recipes.

Already Well-Worn and Well-Loved! Aug. 31 2011
By SDS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have been trying out recipes by Martha Rose Shulman from her NY Times column and was so pleased with them that I decided to buy the book. It does not disappoint. What I like about the book is the "whole food" recipes are healthy without being committed to any one diet. There is a little something for everyone and they have been clearly labeled vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, etc. It is not, however, for meat eaters. There is one chapter in the book that has fish and poultry recipes, which is perfect for me, but may not satisfy red meat lovers.

In the book she explains different foods, their health benefits, and tells you which healthy staples to keep on hand in your pantry, refrigerator and freezer. The recipes are clearly written, tips and techniques are included (e.g., tips on stir frying), and the pictures make the food look so appealing I almost don't know where to start. As someone who is just getting into healthy, whole foods, this book has been a terrific introduction to healthy eating!

Healthy, tasty, realistic recipes Nov. 29 2011
By L. Trees - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I've bought a lot of cookbooks in my day, but this is a favorite. Overall, I find Shulman's recipes to be the perfect mix of healthy and delicious. This isn't tasteless diet food--it's food that's about enjoying fresh ingredients and flavors without covering them up with excessive salt or fat. Unlike Cooking Light and some other healthy recipe sources, she's usually realistic about how much salt, cheese, etc. a recipe needs and what size serving a normal adult person might eat, so you know what you're getting into in terms of servings/calories/sodium when you look at the nutritional information.

I've only had this book for a month, and I already have about a half-dozen recipes that are on my "repeat list." Many are fast and simple enough for weeknight dinners (unless you're allergic to chopping and using a few different pots). Things like making simmered beans are reserved for the weekends, but Shulman usually provides helpful notes about what can be prepped ahead of time, how to store, and how long leftovers last in the refrigerator/freezer. All her notes on storage, substitutions, etc. are helpful and realistic--if she tells you to do something the long way, there's probably a good reason for it.

The book has a great index and is well-organized into sections including breakfast, salads, soups, simple vegetables, pastas and grains, veggie entrees, and a final chapter on fish/poultry. As others have mentioned, this is not a book for someone who believes every meal has to include meat. But for the vegetarian and the veggie-friendly, this is a keeper.
